    Wow was I ever wrong about the title of that documentary
    I was just scrolling through the online tv guide and took a look at viceland just in case one of the shows I was curious about is on at this ungodly hour. None are, but I did discover that movie I mentioned the other day. It's called The House I Live in and the online listing reads "Eugene Jarecki, David Simon (2012) The death of his housekeeper's son inspires filmmaker Eugene Jarecki to add up the true cost of America's losing was on drugs." It's an extremely interesting film and I recommend seeing it.

    TV
    I've been recording Bull since it first aired but until today had only seen the first episode. That first one confused me but I wasn't quite willing to write the show off. Since I'm crocheting another cat bed I wanted the tv on and I wanted to watch something that wouldn't required too much concentration and fired up the second episode. Which I really enjoyed because it addressed bias (particularly bias against women on an unconscious level) and made me think. I'm now watching the third episode and so far I'm not hating it. Yes, that sounds like faint praise, but I'm favorable enough that I wanted to take a bit from crochet and type this out right now.

    I don't watch much in the way of shows with actors, true crime being my thing. If it's a forensic show, I'm probably watching. I have been recording NCIS, L&O:SVU, and Bull but I haven't actually been watching them which explains why I have shows dating back to March & April still on the DVR.

    I'm not sure Bull is an accurate portrayal of what goes on in trials (it reminds me a lot of Perry Mason with the the many "Objection Your Honor!" and the asking of questions that the lawyer *knows* he will be retracting moments after he or she asked them). I have noticed a few lines that I'm 99% certain I've heard used by Dr. Phil on his show (if not exact, then a very close rephrase). But it's lines like that that make me question why I'm reacting on an emotional level and whether my reaction is trustworthy or rational. Although I have a compulsion to remind myself that emotions aren't rational. Thoughts can be rational but emotions just are.

    I've also been watching Lee Remini's show on Scientology, which I have found extremely interesting. I minored in Religion in college (double major; Psychology and Human Sexuality), so I've been interested in Scientology since it first entered my awareness. Much of what the show reveals was not new to me but a few things did surprise me. Like the fact that the average parishioners contribute a quarter of a million dollars to the church. That's the average person, not the wealthy. And I really hate how capricious and greedy the church seems, for example claiming a more accurate church teaching has been discovered and necessitating a new version of a book which then members are then required to purchase even if the changed version is 98% identical to the previous one, or changing the rules as to how a test is administered and/or scored and requiring everyone who passed the previous one to retake the new one (at cost, of course). What I found most interesting, however, is the way tech is used to teach people to examine and control their thoughts and emotions. In theory this should be a good thing but it seems to me the lesson that believers take away is that it is a mistake to put your trust in people, even family members. All you can rely on is yourself and the teachings of the church (and not even in that order). I think taking that skill as far as it can go will inevitably lead to sociopathy.

    Two random semi-related thoughts

    1. I don't trust companies that spend a fortune on advertising. Cable, cell, and credit card companies, I'm looking at you.
    2. I hate receiving offers that include plastic credit-card like things. I can recycle paper, but the plastic cards? Off to the landfill.
