I suppose this was only a matter of time:

Ideal for box set binges, the "second generation smart-bed" designed by Italian architect Fabio Vinella and furniture brand Hi-Interiors comes with an HD projector and 70-inch theater screen, built-in sound system and invisible speakers.

...

 

The bed also has dimmable lighting, an adjustable base, motorized blackout curtains, voice control and a built-in wifi connection -- features, the designers say, that interact to ensure a user gets a better rest.

...

 

The bed's "personalized concierge service" starts when you wake up -- including a smart clock, weather updates and traffic information.
 
For the health conscious, the bed is also fitted with biometric monitors that can track a user's weight.

 

 

I imagine that most users would prefer to turn off the weight tracking feature as their weight graph would probably look like this, where zero is the day they bought this thing:

But anyway, the first line of the article is rather telling:

 

For fans of Netflix and chill, the perfect bed is coming your way.

 

 

Everyone knows what "Netflix and chill" means, and it ain't chillin' out and watching Netflix, lol. So this thing should probably be called the Pornopticon, lol.

 

 

And it's only $13,800 before taxes and delivery! [Note: $5 million penthouse apartment not included]

I saw a quote the other day that applies here

Edward G. Robinson pioneered such a bed.

Nothing new under the Sun, I suppose.

 

Just more evidence that the American Empire is well into its Decadent phase.

 

I guess this will be the Economy version:

I have never really appreciated all the meaning behind your avatar TV, until I just looked at the full version you shared above....

Thank you

Every time I watch TV, I think of the avatars you have and think I'm becoming a TV casualty. Even after I stop, I feel like I've gotten a TV lobotomy. Then I look at everyone around and realize we are all TV casualties . To combat it, I'll go to the library where I will read fantasy after fantasy and wonder if I'm becoming a book casualty.

Oh, damn. That's kind of embarrassing. Glad I actually posted the full version, then.

Soylent Green.

 

 

Its the scene where Sol is in the process of committing assisted suicide, and is watching video of the world as it was before the extinction of forests and animals.

 

Great movie IMHO, if you haven't seen it, you should .

Amused to death.

 

 

I checked out Roger Waters' old album by that name some time back because hey, it's Roger Waters!

 

But damn, being out-of-balance works both ways; ol' Roger might have a point about society's pathological relationship with amusement, but never seeming to find any amusement in anything at all is certainly no fun, either. I got the sense from that album that it would be real hard to make him laugh, and that's kind of sad.

 

 

I've begun to think that being "amused to death" sounds like a pretty good deal, all things considered.

I grew up on Roger Waters, the man is a genius. Recently got a chance of a lifetime to see him. Roger knows how to put on show, made me feel the warm feel of confusion, that space cadet glow..... Sadly, I do agree with you. He has become overly opinionated or maybe to agenda oriented with his fame. Nothing wrong with that, guess he is still trying to tear down the wall or he's not well, he stayed back at the hotel.....And yes, dying with a cheese eating grin on my face, doesn't sound so bad...
I do love Rogers and Floyd. Would like to see Emily Play;)

I rode an elevator with Roger Waters once, purely by chance. Long story.

 

No words were exchanged. I was a teenager and he was flanked by some big burly mean looking dudes that tend to intimidate teenagers but ol' Roger was the meanest looking of the bunch (about as approachable as a pissed-off porcupine, though I bet a porcupine could be coaxed to relax eventually).

Book Casualty is not a thing.... Even the most trifling books exercise and sharpen the mind... Television numbs it...
