I'd be very surprised if that's true! Without seeing any documents I'd think your entering a 5 year contract at X price for y service. Admittedly the US market is not as competitive as the UK, in the he UK at least: I'd suspect 1 gig broadband would be cheaper in a few years, plus I get welcome bonus (£150amazon vouchers etc at start of new contracts) plus there are always deals where providers bundle TV, broadband, netflix etc together for a cheaper price
If your locking in for 5 years none of the above available
It's not stimulus. If I had 10k of student debt and it would be forgiven. I'd fuckit lets go buy a new TV and furniture. People are just going to spend there money.
I’ve seen several capacities in which you describe - the most common being creative strategists on the media side, and the latter being a creative specialist / strategist on the client side.
I work in performance marketing as a scrum master for agile media testing functions, and I work close with a handful of creative strategists who help us build differentiated assets on various social platforms. Each platform, stage of the marketing funnel, and creative theme differ widely within testing environments, but there’s always a huge emphasis for A+ creatives developed quickly.
It’s a good time to shift as companies in certain areas shy away from multimillion dollar tv ads and into a larger variety and volume of smaller assets to test with.
I like YouTube TV I use it for my regular cable also
To be clear. When I say, artificially tank the market. I meant moves much faster and scarier than this summer. Videos from 2008. I think Cramer was almost crying on live TV. That's what I was thinking. It has to happen one way or the other. Only makes sense the people with the most would put something together so they aren't there when it happens
What is the best paid tv subscription to get right now i have netflix hulu and pheasant?
This is my last comment for six hours, banning myself.
Pretty sure a lot of people are fans of his show that have been in the market a long time. Has more action then most tv shows to be honest. After awhile he got targeted as an obvious play and bigger hammers then his took him out like a nail. So hes pretty much guaranteed wrong.
Verbatim, pages 15-16:
>MICHELLE SMITH. Chris.
>CHRISTOPHER RUGABER. Hi. Thank you. Chris Rugaber, Associated Press. I wanted to ask about right now, there’s a sort of growing gap between the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation, the PCE, PCE index, and the one that’s followed by the public, the CPI, of course. How do you expect to handle this divergence if the PCE starts to come down enough for you to consider slowing rate hikes, even if the public is still seeing much higher CPI ratings? Thank you.
>CHAIR POWELL. So it’s an interesting, interesting situation. Of course, we’ve, we’ve long used PCE because we think it’s just better at capturing the inflation that people actually face in their lives. And I think that that view is pretty widely understood. That said, the public really reads about CPI. And the difference really is because the CPI has higher weights on things like food, gasoline, motor vehicles, and housing than the PCE index does. And so that accounts for a lot of the difference. However, over time, they tend to come together. You know, we—given the importance in the public eye of CPI, we are calling it out and noticing it and everything like that. But remember, we do target PCE. That is because we think it’s a better measure. They will come together eventually. The typical gap was really about 25 basis points for a very long time. And if it went—if it got to 40 basis points, that would be very noticeable. And now it’s—now it’s much larger than that because of the things I mentioned. So we’ll be watching both, but, again, the one that we think is the best measure always has been PCE, at least since I think we—some 20 plus years ago—moved to PCE.

I don’t get it… I did what the TV said I should…. Why did it make my life worse???
Not sure what your news sources are, but if it is cable TV, probably time to upgrade.
Lol same for us except sub out Android TV... but we have Chromecasts, and got the mini speaker for free with our Google Pixel phones on the Google Fi Network! Lol
Google hasn't quite been able to replicate the near-cultish ecosystem that AAPL has on a wide scale, but as a proud Google ecosystem user they really are doing a lot of good things. I use Sheets, Gmail, Calendar, Maps, etc almost everyday, use Lens and Assistant pretty regularly, and easily share Photos and Drive files between personal, work, and family. It's insanely easy. I will never go back to iOS/iPhones even though I invest in both AAPL and GOOG, I much prefer Google products at home. Fuck i sounds like an advertisement lol
the comments here have reaffirmed my belief that the chief purpose of our robotic future was previewed in the tv series Silicon Valley with our fave monkey, Kiko
My children are 8 and six google it daddy they use YouTube on their school TV think google got it in the bag for the next generation.
More coverage at:
^(I'm a bot to find news from different sources.) ^(Report an issue) ^(or PM me.)
Google do ok they just don't commit to things properly. Look at Apples commitment to Apple TV and it's now doing ok. Google tried YouTube Red? Which was awful. They just don't do streaming or media services well at all. They're pretty bad at selling services direct to the consumer. The Google phones have done ok and the Google Home and Chromecast are they're big wins.
Stadia could have been incredible but they needed to do a Microsoft and buy up some game studios and didn't. Also games take so long to make so exclusive content is hard to generate.
Us has more options. Outside US, it's Google whatbis embedded in tvs. They grew from google tv, to chromecast, to be the TV
I am not going to pull any punches here, so if you are not ready for a reality check and you are not ready to solve your problems then do not read what I am about to recommend.
Here is the 3 part plan.
You are a family, you are a team. Work together, communicate. Period.
Control your spending to essentials and future benefits only.
Increase your income, you and your wife.
*I accept no excuses, when you find an excuse you want to share with me, stop and turn it into how can I achieve this.
Your family is a team, everyone must work together to get through this goal, support each other, help, be positive, be constructive, collaborate, solve problems creatively. You can say no, we can't afford that, but support them and give alternate no/low cost options. Try to do your best to keep morale as high as possible and only spending on essentials. Fun - you can have fun and enjoyment without spending money. Your family, you/your finance, your kids are the foundation. Everything that's hard, stopping smoking, studying, practicing interviewing, being calm when you want to yell because you had a bad day etc is done for the team. Make it happen.
Control spending - budget one can not manage a thing if it is not measured. You must track ALL spending so you can determine what is essential. Setup a mint.com account, categorize everything meticulously WITH YOUR WIFE. You are a team, discuss everything, for each item, "is this essential?" be kind to each other, hide nothing. work together to support the family. Stop Fu**in (screen name) smoking, period, Full Stop. Tell all of your coworkers you are not buying another cigarette ever and they should never give you one. You, will, never, return the favor, NEVER EVER. Its bad for you, its bad for your children, its the man keeping you down. Also your utilities are not right, there is so much spend there it has to have discretionary spend. REMOVE.
Increase your income: Your wife getting employed is captain obvious but what is not obvious is that she must find work that pays enough to benefit (i don't know the age of your kids) and doesn't cause a significant detriment to the kids. In some cases one parent not working is a benefit for the kids. So support her in every way you can for her to get a job. The market is currently good for work, but it's going to get worse and worse over time, the recession is coming. My only advice for her is, she will do anything to get the job done, will do it with a positive attitude, will go the extra mile on all work, she's reliable, on time, follows directions and achieves goals. Then once she is working time to educate both for you and her, get skills find new jobs, one option, solar is going to go crazy, electricians most def are in demand, your wife can even be an electrician it's not hard it just need reliable. In this case you can focus on one person at a time upping there job, support each other in learning things in the evenings buy giving each other time to study, practice interviews etc. So to be clear, you are working a full day, then you come home, on person spends quality time with the kids the other is studying, learning, achieving to get level up. You cant come home, consume the drug of choice and watch TV. Its go time, you are young, you will only get less energetic as you age, trust me on this.

Inflation, recovery from being down almost 40% this year. VR, innovation, AI, YT Tv, increased ad revenue.
Oversubscription ratios and SLA. A home user is going to use a lot less data on 1gig than a business. A home users probably just going to watch streaming TV on average. On average a business is going to have a bunch of people on their computers for 8 hours a day syncing cloud files, emails, streaming, heavy web browsing, etc etc. I know some ISPs who sim for 300:1 for residential oversubscription and sim for 8:1 oversubscription for business.
We don't have kids but our 6yo niece and her mom has been living with us now for over two years.
Kids have so little a concept of work, that as long as you are doing anything productive and interesting, and keeping a clean well run household, you are doing so much more work than they can even fathom. I really think it's much more about making them take responsibility for stuff than it is you being "at work" all day. more time with you doing stuff around the house is probably going to better at an example of hard work than you being off in an office or on a job site for 10 hours a day where they can't see anything you do.
Sure, if all you do is sit around on the sofa and watch tv, probably bad. But if you do interesting stuff, the example will be there, IMO.
I was thinking about this, the 2008 recession played out on tv when everyone still had cable and on the radio, not so much in the online forums, at least no where near today, and there certainly wasn't wall street bets.
I’m guessing a .5% hike in November. I feel the market will continue crashing and there will be tremendous political pressure to back off on the hikes a week before a major election. I see analysts going on TV, claiming the Fed is going to tank the economy. The Fed is extremely unpopular now. I don’t think they have what it takes to go against all that
Something no one here has mentioned is contention rate.
Back in Australia, I was paying $240/mth for 10/10mbps, while all my friends had 20/1mbps ADSL2+ for like $20
The difference? I got 10mbps down, and 10mbps up. (It was actually a fancy bonded line, so at one point one of my pairs got cut in the street, and instead of being without internet, my speed just dropped to 5/5mbps - took me a few days to notice)
My friends? The box said 20/1, but for some unexplainable reason, 7pm every day, right when they (and everyone else) wanted to watch the evening movie/tv, download their game updates, etc - suddenly their internet speeds would go to absolute trash.
The reality is, ESPECIALLY on those lower speeds, "contention" is an issue for residential lines.
My line was so expensive because it was effectively a dedicated line. 1:1 contention. The box says 10/10mbps, and I'm guaranteed 10/10mbps.
All my friends with their cheap residential lines? They're sharing a 100/10mbps line with 50 other people - a 50:1 contention ratio. Each of them is allowed to use up to 20/1mbps of that at any given time. If everyone wants to use the internet at the same time though? Suddenly you've got 50 people with 2/0.2mbps internet.
Now the reality is, with a 1gig link, contention is unlikely to be an issue. Even if you run a residential line, and hit contention issues - chances are you're still going to be getting 600mbps - more than enough for most people (and businesses)
As mentioned elsewhere in the thread, Static IPs, SLAs, Service Notifications (actually knowing when there's work planned in your area ahead of time, rather than calling up due to an outage to discover there's planned work going on) - these are the other benefits too - but ultimately it's a very different product, with very different overheads and guarantees compared to a residential "best effort" link.
Thomas Sowell is essentially the Jordan Peterson of economics, helping racist white people feel good about their belief that there are so many Black people in prison because they deserve it. He’s not much different from Clarence Thomas or Candace Owens- one of the “good ones” they let speak on FOXNews in spite of not being well respected by the main econ community.
You’re better off reading Naomi Klein’s ‘Shock Doctrine’ or ‘no logo’ if you want to learn about the effects of neoliberal financial theory on society. James Scott or David Graeber offer better examinations of financial systems as well.
Hell, the opening sequence of the Watchmen TV show (HBO) has a more compelling description of racism versus money than Sowell will ever admit to.
He is a multimillionaire on tv. Pretty much like all politicians now. Worthless to society and probably a spawn of satan.
Ha! Could you imagine if Google has only stuck with search. The now have 9 different products that each has over a billion daily active users!
Clearly they should continue with the new products. YouTube TV is releatively new and excellent and leading in the category.
Waymo is well ahead of the competition and just incredibe.
Has some winners and some that do not work. Pretty common. Their YouTube TV product is the best in the category and leads all others now with over 5 million subscribers.
Google has a monopoly on the largest and most visited search engine on earth. Plus I like a lot of their tech and future plans. They also own YouTube and I imagine YT Tv will keep bringing in more revenue.
You’re not mentioning deflation. Better technology, and you produce more for less. The same TV costs half to produce a few years later. Better insecticides, machinery and supply chains, and you can cut the price of bread by a half. Yet it didn’t. The monetary devaluation happened, it was hidden by deflation. Just look at the wealth transfer over the past decades. If you’re wealthy and you get extra millions, you’re not going to spend it on thousands of TV sets or millions of loafs of bread, you’re going to spend it in real assets, stocks, real estate etc.
They'll be back soon enough, trust me ! Business TV like CNBC and social media is to blame for the working-class obsession with stock markets ! After the 1929 crash until the roaring 80s the middle class did not actively participate in the market. From mid-80s onwards there was a cultural shift in the society aided by cable TV that made gambling in stocks fashionable, social media of the last 15 yrs has taken it to new levels ! I am old enough to remember the 2000-2003 crash, by 2003 those who lost their life savings were back in the market looking for "the next microsoft" again ! The same thing happened after 2010, infact with every major correction it brings in a new set of amateurs into the market who think they are the next Warren Buffet !
He used to look so sharp on tv, now it looks like he picked up a meth/crack addiction bc he can’t afford coke anymore 🤣🤣🤣
I'm sorry you've found yourself in this situations. I've known what it's like to struggle and be hungry, and it sucks, but you can get through this!
Pay cash. No more payday loans. Nothing that accrues interest. Stop spending on all non-essentials. You may need to sell a few things (computer, tv, anything you can get cash for) on Craigslist or FB marketplace to pay your immediate bills. It's just stuff, you can buy it again later when life improves. Top priority is paying the bills and getting rid of the payday loans.
Check out the wiki on r/personalfinance. You need to get a budget. Write everything down, or consider software like YNAB.
Work on quitting smoking. Not just to save money, but for your health and your kids too.
I agree with the other poster why are you paying $400 for the mortgage on her parents house? Can you stop or pause that?

Thing I see is…
Twitch is almost exclusively for gaming / streaming type content.
YouTube is just tv… and it has streamers on there too.
So, perhaps it isn’t the undisputed content conduit for watching streamers, but it’s for sure the leader in just general video viewing… including streamers
Longer term, seems to me, YouTube will just increase their dominance in this space.
Frankly, I think ppl sleep on YouTube, just the product itself.
I’ve gone years now without cable, and I’d say… 80% + of the content I watch is through YouTube.
I tend to think this is a trend that’s going to continue.
Google has a long standing trend of killing off products that are either past their usefulness or not achieving the results they wanted. if you look through that website, a lot of products and services they've EOL'd have mainstream markets (Nexus Q, OnHub, FitStar Yoga), have simply been superseded (google play movies and tv, google music) or simply served their purpose and would be antiquated if still around today (Google Showtimes, dodgeball, google catalogs, Orkut, etc).
although it's a very different R&D model, Google works by throwing a ton of new products at the wall just to see what sticks. rather than slowly fund and nurture a few promising projects at a time, they operate by essentially always beta testing everything to the public and letting the end users decide the validity of it's utility. Sometimes, these products/services look like a total wash, but Google constantly learns from previous endeavors; Nexus products were all an experiment to get to the current Pixel products. Stadia was an experiment in big cloud computing, latency and market interest. Google also has a tendency to be ahead of their time with a lot of products, so take the failure of Stadia to indicate that cloud gaming will catch on in about 4-6 years.
All genius on the TV will tell you it's impossible to time the bottom because they want to sell while you hold. It's much easier to be a little late in timing the bottom than DCAing the whole pain. You just need to pay attention to the right signals and in this case they will come from The Fed.
you kind of have to admire the balls on Mr Lee to be willing to still go on TV and be calling return to ATH, regardless of how fucking mad he sounds
Tom Lee really still predicting SPY480 by the EOY? Why is he still a guess on TV, they must think it’s fun?
My interpretation on the rain gold quote, knowing buffets other works/quotes, is basically when we are seeing market bleed money to make the biggest bets.
NO ONE wanted to buy houses after 2008 but in hindsight it was insanely cheap. Similarly, at start of COVID market freaked out but returned its value and then some (which is being lost now by the day lol).
I will say I dont think we are at 'blood in the streets' level yet. Employment is still strong, prices are cooling, inventories are rising. Really if you turn the TV off indicators arent terrible. Now when this hits real estate, home values, company credit aka layoffs, then we have more blood in the streets - but this may also be a soft landing as well.
Tom Lee is about to come on TV to tell us everything is okay
Yes, this is just 'filming' for a TV show. Those squibs are just really real looking...
They on TV somewhere? They died on CNBC I feel like.
Why exactly? What would've been the main differences in your life if you turned off the TV / stopped reading the news?
The perpetual Dunning-Kruger is spot on. I've been in marketing for 10 years and I'm constantly learning and catching up. It seems that the start up environment enhances the experience, because I have to cover a lot more that I'm used to. For example I might have to create and buy TV advertising soon, it comes with entirely different challenges than digital marketing and that puts me on high stress all the time.
they started google fiber before the depreciation on the last batch of ISP upgrades ran out. the estimates I read said $140 billion to deploy it everywhere. on top of this they tried to cheap out in the initial deployments and were sued for it so later deployments would be expensive.
after a few years everyone else began their gig upgrades as they depreciated their older equipment and live TV sales went into the toilet and google fiber became another product no different from comcast or FIOS
We are in a similar situation. Our mortgage is $1,000 a month, $1,600 after taxes insurance etc. We are in an older, quiet, safe neighborhood on third of an acre lot on a corner. Compared to the lots in the newer nicer more expensive neighborhoods, ours is huge. Also we take four to six vacations a year and still have money left over for other stuff. I also drive a 12-year-old Honda because I don't need to impress anyone with my car. It gets me from one place to another and is reliable. My perception is that people are insecure with themselves or where they're at in life so feel the need to overspend on frivolous things just for the perception of success or wealth. It says if people feel others will think less of them because they don't have the newest car or the biggest TV or the name brand whatever.
Golden boy was such a nice TV series
It's trading at 2.0x revenue. That's cheap for a company that's the market leader in TV streaming. Thanks for the cheap shares 🤡.
No offense, but that’s not how wealthy people get wealthy. They don’t take on debt for stupid shit like a TV or couch, they use debt as leverage to take on projects that multiplies their wealth. She should be looking at ways to buy two or 3 duplexes if she wants to break out.
It feels like when i used to watch scrambled porn channels on tv. Sometimes I would see a nipple but not know if it was from a man or woman. It was a dangerous fap.
Federal prison isn’t bad. They have satellite TV and play squash.
Lol “indoctrinate children” what an ignorant republican talking head thing to say from someone bashing “sound bites for tv audience”
I have a 4 year degree.. taught me everything I needed to get my job. My wife has a 6 year masters degree.. taught her everything she needed to get her job… so I’m missing the disconnect between how we wasted away years of our lives to get useless degrees and became indoctrinated by the political elite?
The fun comes from he's so coked out you get high from just looking at him on TV
Fuck that episode is amazing. The ending one shot take is some of the best tv ever made.

Truss and Kwarteng look like a couple of children's TV show actors that accidentally ended up in the wrong Hair and Makeup studio and are now way out of their depth. They are bumbling around on telly like it's the set of The thick of It wondering wtf is going on and how they ended up here.
Oh but it's real life.....
Okay so far I've not posted my 2 cents on this sub about this very topic because I know it's futile to go against the established narrative in an echo chamber but after this thread I can't anymore. This is going to be a shitty not fun to read cathartic rant.
I sold at the top. It wasn't hard to time at all. In fact, it was one of the easiest tops to spot in a long while. We had recession signals flashing everywhere across the board. And even if the penny was going to fall the other way, the risk/reward ratio was completely off. There was no incentive to stay in the market.
I've been lurking for a while on this sub reading typical mantra's like "buy when others are fearful, sell when others are greedy", "time in the market beats timing the market", "DCA into S&P500", "don't fight the fed". The thing is, one day one Redditor will parrot "don't fight the fed" as a way of telling you that you should get out of stocks (effectively timing the market based on macro economic events), while another will say "time in the market beats timing the market" (effectively advising you against timing). The truth? These statements were made by professionals in a certain context. They are now taken out of context and used by beginner investors and applied as the end all be all general rules you should live by. You think Warren Buffet doesn't time the market? He definitely does. Even though his famous mantra says you shouldn't, he does it himself. Yes. Between now and 2020 he sold everything and went full into cash. He did the same thing in the 2008 crisis. Full cash. Sold all his positions and waited it out to rebuy at the bottom. Morale of the story: these mantra's only work in context. And now with current economic climate, that context changes. So the rules change. And if you listen to the average Redditor on this sub who still goes by the old rules you'll make mistakes.
Hell, last week I saw a thread "should I start DCA'ing now or wait for crash?". OP apparently completely missed the irony in that question.
Alright, about this current market top. "Buy stocks to avoid inflation". Well, we live in a time of modern economic theory where the FED and ECB dictate what the markets will do. Raising rates will have an inverse effect on stocks and inflation and a direct effect on the strength of the dollar. So naturally, sell all your stocks and trade on the Forex market for dollars. This was the easiest play to spot.
What's going to happen next will depend on the state of the economy. Example: In the UK the Bank of England has just announced they will turn the money printer back on. Their economy can't take it anymore so they're pivoting. Printing money has an inflationary effect. Yes it will boost their stocks and help businesses, keep employment rate up, yada yada yada. But it decrease the value of the pound. It's a given. It's cause and effect. So if you want to make money, there u go, short the pound. US could face a similar problem within the next 6-12 months. Powell said they'd be raising rates throughout 2024 I believe. That's only going to happen if the economy can take it. While they continue to hike rates stocks will go down, dollar will go up, unemployment rate will increase, debt delinquency will rise, and at some point mortgage defaults will rise. You should be short on stocks, long on dollars. UNTIL one of the above mentioned breaks and Powell is forced to pivot, like the bank of England, because the economy cannot take it anymore. When that happens, when you see him on TV saying they're decreasing rates/turning printer back on, you reverse your strategy. Into stocks, out of dollar. If Powell does this, that buys the US economy one more economic cycle. Do note that we will be in a hyper inflationary market period if that happens. And then probably around 2030 it all comes crashing down. When Powell 2.0 then is forced to go Volcker style on the rates, he will be on TV again and it will be your sell signal. Can't miss it. Until you see Powell pivot, you stay the course.
Yeah cuz I subsidized it with my new OLED TV, numbnut
been falling asleep with the tv on lately. am I just destined to become my parents
Immediate money savers... cancel all subscriptions (Amazon Prime, Netflix, Spotify, cable tv, etc.) Those are wants, not needs; it won't be foerever, but you'll need to do without for several months.
Get a prepaid cell service, RedPocket is the cheapest, especially if you buy their sim card and minutes from them on ebay r/redpocket for more info. A even drastic idea is to drop cell service for a couple of months and just rely on free wifi areas (your home, school, and work all have internet?).
Go thru each and every utility bill. Turn off the AC, or turn down the heat depending on where you live. Probably the biggest negotiable is internet, switch companies for a better deal, or call to "cancel" and see if they offer you a free month or lower fee (this has been recommended many times, and it almost always works).
Make ALL of your meals (and coffee) at home, no eating out.
Contact your landlord and see if you can work around the complex for discounted rent (like vacuuming the hallways, running the carpet cleaners on emptied apartments, yardwork, etc) Tell them you are in a bind, they might come up with something.
Pay attention to where you shop. Look on facebook to see if your area has a Buy Nothing and or Freecycle groups, people will give away better items then you'd think on there, I've even gotten food.
Netflix isn’t cable. I specifically noted streaming service offering live tv. To compare it to major news networks.
Here's the typical liberal sheepster coming to blindly defend the liberals all while you watch your leaders call out to dead representatives and talk about their alliances with North Korea. I don't care if you are republican or Democrat but if you're the fucking vice president of the United States and you make a statement like that on live TV you have no business being in any form of power.
Loval newspaper featured the businesses in the area when covid was running the rounds.
Could reuse the same idea. Simply message your local newspaper and try to haggle for cheap adspace, free interviews, business highlights like "ten best toys to get from Toms Toys" to help the block survive.
Its a rough idea, because frankly if you are mostly depending on walk by traffic its time to play some emotional strings.
Other options are any other local media such as radio, tv etc.
Also throw out your phone and get a tube tv where you can play a Nintendo 64.
There’s 6 billion people in the world.
Worldwide news agencies and major tv networks reach a much larger audience.
Let alone 100 million subscribers could include millions of bots or dead people.
His video views can be multiple from the same person. Etc.
It’s not even close to comparable and 1 billion sounds like bullshit.
Unless as I said elsewhere it’s from a crypto casino. Like maybe Stake.
If you think that one person can fix a global economic problem… then you have been watching far too much TV.
If you think whoever offered to buy him out is interested only in ad revenue you're sorely mistaken.
MrBeast has unique access to a huge audience from a few key demographics. Literally everything he does or shows influences his viewers. He is (or can be) the perfect propaganda machine for the generation that doesnt read newspapers.
His viewers don't read the Post. They don't watch cable TV. They're barely on any news sites. Boomer media doesnt and cant reach them, but MrBeast can.
You seem adamant that this is not worth the money? Are you sure about that?
About as credible as TV televangelist.
Yeah, I disagree with OP. Physical toys will not go away. Physical toys have a vastly, vastly superior UX/UI over video games.
Consider any toy (doll, fidget spinner, legos, etc). Kids can just pick them up and play with them.
For video games, you gotta make sure the battery is charged (or the console is plugged in to TV/wall), the console OS & any software updates are applied, etc. Then kids have to navigate the game's menus and learn the game's controls. None of this is trivial or easy for young kids.
On top of all of this, what would I rather give my kid? Video games or physical toys? While I am a video gamer, I would give my kids physical toys so they aren't staring at a screen all day ruining their eyes.
After bear Stearns advice shocked he's still on TV.
On Apple? Apple TV? I have Netflix and I believe Hulu I can't keep signing up, I still have cable too
It’s honestly pretty wild that the FED and government are just continuously fucking all the poors to benefit the rich and laughing about it on TV and no one is doing anything about it like good little sheep. You’ve all been slowly conditioned over decades, things getting worse and worse little by little so you won’t even notice the change with your short term goldfish mindsets. May god have pity on all of your wretched souls. That being said id like to put everything on black. 🎰
Oh good. Thought my TV might be fucked up.
Toys are not video games. Video games are not toys. Neither will ever supplant the other, any more than TV/movies will ever completely supplant books - even as entertainment.
IMHO it has to do with the amount of tv commercials for toys reaching kids.
I've never bought cable as an adult and pay for ad-free on the few streaming services I do have. My 9yr old has never been exposed to the deluge of toy commercials like I was as a 90's kid. The things she does ask for are things she actually wants and will play with consistently. Win-win in my opinion.
My friends who do have cable...their kids are ALWAYS begging for new toys even though their houses are flooded with them in every room. Does not teach them to value what they do have and conditions the kids to always want more or the newest thing NOW. It's ridiculous.
Personally, I dearly miss Toys-R-Us. They had some pretty cool shit, even for adults.
Lmao no surprise. A bunch of juniors writing scripts for the last decade get hit with a multi deviation move and it breaks their contingency systems erasing pensions. How many times are we going to see this happen? It’s in movies and TV shows for fucks sake
Lol… well, that’s the thing.. scoring house is not a thing (yet?). I know hans zimmer is doing that with a company called bleeding fingers, who is the one that replaced Alf clausen scoring the Simpsons. They also do nature tv shows. So I’ll be trying that by advertising in social media via album releases. Who knows.
Im always been fascinated on the production side but always dealt after that. I know a massive amount of productions have gone to Atlanta thanks to tax credits (and less unions?). When I worked in the distribution side I could see the numbers broadcasters and streamers license content for. And even stuff like those made for tv shows (lifetime etc) sell pretty well.
And now there’s such a demand for content. And it seems it’s very cheap nowadays to make normal drama or comedy. Unlike years ago that quality productions/camera/post etc was expensive , it seems price wise it makes sense. The price issue seems to be having a big name attached. As that’s what distributors and financiers want. How’s that process for you guys or what you’ve seen? How are things financed and is it “let’s make something and find distribution later” ? (Via film festivals etc).
And how do you guys price productions? (Budgets/etc?) I ask also because trying to figure out pricing for post/music it’s relevant the distribution and overall budgets. And as things keep changing to self publishing and streaming (avod) it’s hard to sometimes asses.
I faintly remember him on TV. I think the basic message was that if we have less debt and a strong dollar, it buys more.
> but I feel like a lot of parents are just going with what's easiest, and what's easiest is putting a screen in their hand and walking away.
Unfortunately I think that's human nature. When I was a kid, it was the tv, now it's computers. Plus parents have fewer resources now, many don't have extended family or 'a village' to help raise kids so they don't get much downtime. However I would not say it in as an extreme way as you, I do think parents care about kids, it's just that their time will be spend in a balance between self interest and what's good for the kids, it's rarely going to be 100 percent always for the benefit of the kids. Also sadly I don't think many parents really understand a lot about what IS good for kids or how it should be done, plus they have their own psychological baggage to work through. So even when they think they are doing good for their kids, often they aren't really. For instance my brother and my sister in law felt sad when their kid was crying so they'd give her a cookie and cater to her to make her feel better. Yeah, not a good long term plan..
Film composer and sound designer here. We did several sound Desgin packs that sold well during the pandemic and now that tv is ramping up it’s more music services.
Im glad you get good money from productions. There’s always a demand for all sorts of entertainment related biz in LA. And if attached to any of the large distributors it’s crazy dough. When I worked at one do these (big ) distributor and placed orders it was just crazy money. Easy average $200-500 a month in stuff I could do myself, but lack the equipment , and well… it’s only a few studios that we dealt with.
Now as a composer sound designer I’m trying to target my company as a custom scoring house for series instead of a “composer” since we have a small network of friends in LA (and elsewhere) just being composers I’d thought to bring in that company style service. The Normal approach is to find one composer and that person relies on friends to help out (myself just did a few cues for movie), So that’s the entrepreneur part of this, creating the “scoring production house” that I could leverage my connections in the biz.
Are you doing tv, ads, social media? I wonder about the extent of self publishing movies in Amazon/etc and YouTubers getting massive money and how’s that changing the landscape.
I mean you’d have to be regarded to do it, because of course he will never sell why work for someone when you can work for yourself? He is the company, he even said that right now it’s not worth 10 bill but in 4 or 5 years it will be. It would be like buying Steve Jobs, you just have to decide if he had created his “iPhone” yet. He wants to start an actual film studio and make movies and actual tv shows, he’s working on a mobile game. He already has the burger thing and plans on taking it nationwide, he has his candy company. That 10 billion would be all the businesses not just the YouTube channel. And whatever he makes kids will buy it because it has his logo. My kid doesn’t want McDonald’s anymore he wants beast burgers. He’s the Gen Z Elon in my opinion
Do they still make movies anymore? Everyone is watching TV series that drag on and on forever.
I mean, that price has always lured me in. Spend $1.50 on food, walk out with a $1,500 TV. Smart, Costco…smart.
This reminds me, one time at a restaurant an employee in the back didn't know the computer he was using was tied to a display/TV in the restaurant.
He was watching videos on one of those watching people die sites. You know, where they get sucked onto helicopter blades, or get shot on camera, or get flayed by cortels... Yeah...
Don't take the deal equity at this stage in the game. It will only cause resentment and it's a bad move for you because equity is useless this early on. Make it a 2k loan unsecured or with collateral (the truck, a grill, something small like a TV or lawn equipment, etc.) and take revenue off the top and help him market the company on social media. If you want equity add a convertible buyback convenience based on growth of the business. All incentives align, you have less risk, and they have motivation to make it work.
Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.
Are the words of an actual Dementia Test.
I exercise, but I don't go to the gym. I do basic weight lifting with dumbbells and bench presses. And I get cardio from runs or walks. I have a TV connected to youtube where I can watch a personal trainer for free and follow the different routines in each video.
This works for me. Now in your case, I will assume you like swimming based on what you wrote. One way to calculate if it's worth it is to check the cost of renting a pool. Assuming they charge 100-400 bucks for a 5 hour session, it seems expensive as a one time event compared to just 50 dollars at YMCA when the gym is available the entire month.
Owning a pool is even more expensive. So imagine if you rented someone's pool 3 times in one year and it cost you 600 dollars.
At YMCA, the membership would have cost you 600 for the whole year and you can go anytime during open hours.
To me, I would take this deal, if swimming was that important to me. And it sounds like it is to you.
Consider getting a roommate - if you're used to living at home, it won't be as big of an adjustment compared to going from living alone. It would be really hard to go from living alone to having a roommate - so you might as well do it now and start saving money.
Things that get slashed in half:
Renter's insurance, Internet, Garbate, Heating, and many subscriptions can be shared too. Not to mention, you're going to need to outfit an apartment, and that gets expensive. Things like couches, TV, stuff for the kitchen are all communal. As a bonus, you get a bit more overall space in a two bedroom than a one bedroom. This may make it more comfortable to have people over instead of going out -which can save a lot of money. Depending on where you live, the apartment itself may be cheaper too... but places like DC and Boston that's generally not true - but suburban CT or MD it isn't much more for a two bedroom than a one bedroom.
I would also suggest staying at home as long as you can. Focus on saving up as much as you can during that time - "paying" out things like your estimated rent etc to a separate fund. If you find your primary bank account going down in that time, you need to adjust your budget.
Internet should be 40-60 dollars, not 100. See if you can by a router (and possibly modem) instead of renting. That generally pays for itself in one to two years, and with research tend to work better than the rental crap.
I think for Mint you're talking closer to $30.
- Keep the iBonds and decide on how many months of emergency fund do you need to be safe. Only you can decide it. I work for the feds in healthcare so 2 months for me is more than enough. We had a guy here that worked in TV and I thought he needed 2 years because of the variability of his income. You can decide what is best for you.
- You have a quasi “all weather” portfolio but IMO you have a little too much. I would pair it down a bit and read up on all weather type portfolios. I can see what you are trying to do though.
- If you are thinking of buying a house, keep some cash back, don’t invest it unless you are ok with losing it.
- I don’t usually recommend buying specific markets unless you really are in tune with them.
- I have some REITs and like them.
- Stay away.
I have a portfolio that is all weather too but a little more streamlined than yours.
My other recommendations.
- Ditch the PM ETF. The ones you picked are some of the worst. I prefer actual metal or miners. GLD and SLV are no good.
- it’s odd to have both qqq(growth) and dividend stock(value). You just made a very expensive and complicated blended fund. Simplify that or tilt toward what you want. Value has higher expected returns than growth.
Here are my summaries that go into many of the topics you are asking about.
Sadly that's a deal for rent. I think it's worth asking around though, I have my FIL living with us too which complicates everything. And it's not like he's a good person, he has started fights with our neighbors over parking and is an alcoholic asshole. He's honestly an embarrassment to me and I'm stuck with him. Kicking him out means he's homeless again, but I'm not sure how much of that is my problem anymore. I've been too nice.
I'm going to look into an ebike and selling my car. The payment, gas, and insurance are almost $500 a month. I don't need it honestly and it would improve my life having that cardio anyways.
Spectrum is my internet provider. I could definitely do without it. But the wife and FIL live for TV and that's all they watch all day. Maybe I have them pay for it going forward so if they want it, they can get it.
I recently started detailing cars again, it's been good as there's no commitment to being there each day. I made $250 and $180 with tip on my first two cars. I'll see if I can step that up. Sadly my work is salary and I already manage a ton of departments, there's not much else I could pick up there haha
I found a local church that's doing a kitchen. I'm going to volunteer to handout food and take whatever is thrown out after. I used to attend this church so it made it easier to ask.
I went through my entire budget and moved everything to debit. I'm going to try this month to put every dollar on those cards and then not use it unless it's a real emergency.
Appreciate your time!
I haven't had live TV for years and it's a rip off
I get netflix at a discount through t-mobile and have annual subs to disney and HBO i bought at a discount as well. i'll probably cancel one or both of them come next year. watch some youtube, watch a few shows on prime which i have for the shipping and whole foods discounts and that's about it. watch youtube too.
This is called an advertisement. It has nothing at all to do with you, any more than any TV commercial, YouTube ad, or internet popup promising you won’t an iPhone has to do with you.
Joe Biden's press team was on TV again today saying, "there is no recession". LOL
They're not. Every TV, game console, etc just has streaming options built in. Or you can just go to the website through browser. Roku is a useless product for old people who don't know how to get to netflix without it.
Yeah that's a lie generated by the logging & bio-fuels industries. They hire the scientists, the scientists tell the firefighters and TV people, and the firefighters and TV people believe them and repeat what they say over and over because "they're scientists."
It's happening b/c drought and control of surface waters ie dams, aqueducts and agricultural clearing. It's basically a man made disaster, but there's alot of money to be made getting those fuckin' tree hugging hippies to back off our valuable resources.
