Professor Media Matters

I am a media professional with 6 years as a TV producer and reporter, and college professor in the field of Communications. I am also a Conservative with a passion for pop culture. This will be my attempt to put the "me" in media. It will be my take on movies, TV, books, magazines, newspapers, the Internet and all that is the worldwide media.

ENTERING THE 21ST CENTURY: My wife and I are trying to keep up. Really we are. In order to stay abreast of the entertainment and information options available to you today, one really must have DVR & DSL. Up until recently, the only D we had was a DVD. But we're trying to make up for lost time.

Last weekend, I was at my brother's house watching a silly sketch comedy program, The Andy Milonakis Show, on MTV2 with my 14 year old nephew Christopher. I had to leave the room and was afraid I was going to miss part of the show. It's hysterical, but if you don't have a silly sense of humor (like me), don't waste your time. Anyway, my nephew pushed the DVR button and started recording it instaneously. So I didn't miss any of the program and plus we got to fast forward through the commercials. It was awesome. And I was so impressed with it we decided to sign up for it this week. DVR is revolutionizing the way we watch TV. It provides you with so many more viewing options. You can watch a program whenever you want, not just when the network decides to air it. Fascinating stuff! And no VCR tapes to mess with.

So soon we will have both DVR and DSL. Mrs. Media Matters will really be a blogging maniac when we no longer have to rely on dial up Internet service.

Stay tuned to this site for reviews and evaluations of our DVR & DSL experiences. And I will occasionally throw in a DVD review as well.

Please put the "me" in media and let me know what you think.
