JTV is Hypnotic


Old Buddah – Hong Kong, 2000

And not in a good way.  I arrived home after an uneventful flight (thank god!) and after unpacking, went straight to Lobby 1 and JTV.  Wow, what a bore!  I am actually falling asleep.  I almost feel as though I have been hypnotized.  Maybe I have been.  Perhaps that is the reason I come back here day in and day out?  I wonder what the word is — the post hypnotic suggestion — that triggers me to go to Justin.tv and irc.justin.tv?

Earlier in the day there was a schedule entry for and appointment to sign the lease but — surprise surprise — they didn’t get that accomplished today.  I was 35,000 feet in the sky at the time, but heard Justin say something about how they “didn’t make it back in time.  I suspect he may have gotten delayed picking his brother up this afternoon, but that nothing more than a guess, so I won’t claim it to be fact and frankly, I  am too tired to check the archives.

I wonder how the new landlord feels about them not signing today?  It does have a financial impact on a landlord, but how knows what he/she is thinking.   I wonder if the landlord has ever tuned into JTV?  He/she would have to expect a delay.  Can you imagine being Justin’s landlord?  I’d worry that if I’d ever get paid.

Livin’ Not So Large


Hong Kong Island, 2000

At dinner tonight with Kyle, Daniel, Jacob and Norah, Justin was talking about his financial situation and as he was asking people if they had cash to pay for the burritos and he was trying to figure out if they could charge it off to Kiko or JTV, he mentioned that he only has $123 in his bank account.  Someone in the Peanut Gallery of course was astonished — “But he’s making all the money from his sponsors, he should have lots of money.”  You know, what might be most beneficial from all of the time spent watching JTV would be a Business 101 tutorial.  For all the wasted hours here, people that don’t have a clue about how things work in the real world might be positively impacted by a little class on things like — What needs to happen in order to draw money from a corporate business account — even if you are the President or CEO or CFO, etc.?  Can a corporation actually survive by taking in kind trade — products — in lieu of money for advertising?  How many reeboks, cans of Bawls and sunglasses does it take to pay the rent this month?

Ohhh, if only it was that easy to reap the rewards of a business that consists of sitting on your ass 60% of the time, sleeping 30% of the time and going to parties and getting drunk the othe 10% of the time.
