Television is Dangerous


I noticed this painted on a window next to the front door of a place called The Plant, which is located in a revitalized area of town between Florida State University and Florida A&M University near downtown. According to their Facebook page, The Plant is a "Center For Arts And Exploration" and hosts various art related events from time to time. I didn't have time to go inside, but I'll definitely have to go back.

Linking to Monday Mural.

Hello, I guess it is true. Too much television for the kiddies is especially dangerous. Great mural.

Happy Monday, have a great new week ahead!

I agree with the sentiment expressed. TV has become comprised mostly of violence and sex without meaning and horror movies. It's such a great medium but the crap produced is almost without fail addressed to 12-year old boys who think watching people vomit is fun!

The Plant sounds like a good place for young and old alike!

Yes, I agree. You should check this place out.

Love the mural and yes it can be dangerous and boring. We don't have tv gave it up 7 years ago and don't miss it. We listen to the radio though :)

In 1960's there was a journalist that said television is a machine to make lunatics

I'd love to know the reasons why the artist thinks television is dangerous! :)

Revrunner said...

Certainly a strong image, if that's what the artist was going for.

Hmmm. I remember seeing bumper stickers a few years ago that said 'kill your television'... probably up in hippieville (Eugene) Oregon. But I have to agree with your sign -- too much of a good thing can hurt you.

That is eye-catching and an effective way to attract people to see what else they have.
I seldom watch TV. I prefer books.

When your TV is wielding a hammer, look out. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
