That's mostly true, but I've spent the last two weeks here at my in-laws and the TV is on 75% of the day. At my house, I have speakers wired throughout the house so the same music plays everywhere and that's playing 75% of the day. I have several playlists that are 5-10 hours long ready to go, from 70s funk & disco to 2010s rock & pop. Before the pandemic, when I walked into most people's houses, the TV would be on. Ours is off most of the day.That doesn't sound like polar opposite. I know you listen to (and play) new music, but your prime music era is the 80s. I imagine that kids, and playing in a band takes up most of your TV time.
I can't blame the band lately since we've only gigged 3x in the last couple years (still auditioning new singers, but even that's on hold thanks to Covid). The rule with my kid is he isn't allowed to do anything with a video screen until late afternoon, and only after chores/homework are done (weekend mornings for a few hours are allowed too, he gets about 20-30 hours of screen time a week excluding school laptop time) so he and I spend a lot of time doing other stuff (lately it's been chess, and we just started going to the gym again). Even back in the early 90s, I didn't own a TV for several years. Only had one for the next few years after that because my roommate owned one. Then I only bought a TV after him because my wife wanted one. I rarely use it.
