Boob Tube Begone! Welcome Freedom-Loving 21st Century

After throwing away the boob tube, modern Russian WWII movies started to appear on the flat screen via the Web and Google chromecast. I guess the mind-body got fed up with traditional mass media. Hollywood likes to dwell in such teeny-tiny cramped quarters.

Let's just say it was a welcome change for the little addict to see WWII all over again as if for the first time. And just to dispel any concerns regarding foreign language flicks, you can listen to Mozart while watching and have no problems following along. Great cinematography/acting ties everything in so well with no need to hear inane dialog ... words, when something much more profound is occurring. Truly. Scripts typically add unnecessary drama that drags everything down to the neurotic rational mind's perspective. And these Russian WWII flicks already come with a pretty drama-packed theme, showing that other side of WWII the West basically ignored during the Cold War, battles in Russia and Eastern Europe ... which is a pretty large feat, considering that is where the biggest battles and most loss of life and treasure occurred of this most epic time. Words cannot describe. Credit long past due, too. And really very little propaganda other than at times teetering toward cornball ... basically, you see via cinematography just the silent majority coping with experiences that tried wo/men's souls, in a refreshingly new and real way to the Western perspective. And commercial free!

Just install chromecast fob to your flat screen tv-dumb-terminal thingy and go to YouTube on your pc or mobile. ... magically it gets done. Have belief. Believe what I am saying. For $35 ... and no more of the big dominating cable-company crap! From there the world is open to you. Just type in key search words and pick from the result list of free movies — Don't bother with anything that cost money. That will be the Hollywood/Wall Street bean-counter crap, driven down to the lowest common denominator for the biggest bucks, you've been trying to avoid all your life.

Be aware also YouTube is just one Web application of an infinitely growing community of great Web apps. This article is just a spring board into your own perspective. Just look for the chromecast icon/button (see image below). If the place on the Web has that, you are good to go. You just select it and casting (transmitting) occurs from your device to your flat screen. With the YouTube app, you can queue up a bunch of movies and let your new "tv" run one movie after another. You can make playlists and play those special ones, say, "russian wwii movies", when you are in the mood for that type genre.

So, take charge. Be proactive. Mash it up. A killer application you will be! Remember. If you don't take control — the machine will take control of you, i.e. content-driven tv telling you what you will watch when you will watch.
