Comedy Central’s app combined with AppleTV is one of the best tv experiences I’ve had recently. Considering how pricing cable boxes are to run, it’s totally worth paying for a cable tv subscription and only using it to authenticate Comedy Central and whatever other tv apps are this neo-human.

› Freeing Workers From the Insurance Trap

phroyd:

" … The report estimated that — thanks to an increase in insurance coverage under the act and the availability of subsidies to help pay the premiums — many workers who felt obliged to stay in a job that provided health benefits would now be able to leave those jobs or choose to work fewer hours than they otherwise would have. In other words, the report is about the choices workers can make when they are no longer tethered to an employer because of health benefits. The cumulative effect on the labor supply is the equivalent of 2.5 million fewer full-time workers by 2024. … “

The republicans spin this as a “Bad” thing, when in fact, it frees up people for more diverse job choices, not having the need for heatth insurance being a factor in staying in a job that may ot be right for where they are in their life!

We should utilize it. Hemp could solve many problems.

Godfrey Reggio’s new movie Visitors is reverberating through my being. Truly experiential, and definitely not experimental. Poetic Cinema at its best.
