So like many other pop culture bed sponges, I simply can’t fall asleep without having “the TV on.” (Small shout out to Poltergeist at this point–I can’t imagine the remake will thrill me much with its TV People.) I put that in quotes because these days, my computer is my TV. I like to fall asleep to recordings of my favorite shows, and always have. Back in the day, I used a VCR, and had a substantial collection of VHS tapes (my college dorm neighbors were always borrowing from my collection of “Cheers” episodes because I had painstakingly recorded them with all the commercials cut out).
(Another side note here, but I suspect I use parentheses a bit too much.)
In the new millennium, digital files are where it’s at, but until I created Media Shuffle, I had no way of easily falling asleep to back-to-back “tapings” (not always in front of a live studio audience) of my favorite sitcom cheese. Now, I do. And thanks to its un-patented design (none pending), I don’t even have to think much about what show(s) I want to fall asleep to. I just click one button, and let the app decide for me.
And it’s yours for free, too…
