I cam across this short film and thought it was very interesting and quite relevant to what we've been talking about: fear of the unknown and of differences. The most interesting part to me was that there was no dialogue and no official statement or explanation of the film's meaning, so you get to draw your own conclusions. I had some pretty strong emotions watching it and I'm really curious to see what you all think.

This is going to be kind of a sacreligious post (no pun intended having to do with Undercover). TVbyGirls tends to be rooted in media. I know that we know and value other ways to communicate, but, for example, the whole point of having this blog is to be communicating with the world via this newfangled medium of digital communications and internet. However, during the summer, I find myself really not wanting to spend time on the computer (an excuse - although not a very good one - for not blogging as often). Even when it's awful and hot and sticky outside, I don't want to waste time - that could otherwise be spent with friends or nature or both - sitting in front of a screen. I am wondering if anyone feels the same, and how much time (on average) each of you spend on the computer or watching TV or playing video games every day. Does it change between the summer and the school/ work year?
