11-10-09 My Entertainment Dollars
So, yesterday I spoke of the record stores in
I get emails from out of area music vendors, and sometimes they get my entertainment dollars – Wayside Music, for instance. Once in a blue moon, I order from amazon.co.uk – when it’s a book / CD title I am not likely to find stocked anywhere here. I get weekly emails from Boo Boo Records in
So, where does my entertainment dollar go? I subscribe to Strange Days Magazine from Kinokuniya book store in downtown
And neither Dorothy or I have cable TV. Pay for TV? You must be joking!
We’ve seen a few live shows this year, so the Hollywood Bowl has claimed some of our entertainment dollars. Hey, it was so worth it to see Grace Jones! But live shows are expensive these days. Not uncommon for it to cost more than $100 for us to see someone play live (frequently closer to $200!)
We like to travel, so I guess I should consider my gasoline expenses as “Entertainment dollars”. Plus, when you visit an outlying community, you might spend some cash, too. I suppose I should consider eating in restaurants as spending my “Entertainment dollars”. Guess that’s where most of my extra cash goes these days. Entertaining food!
I try to save money, but…not always an easy thing to do. Thank goodness I have health insurance via my work! I do not think I will ever consider money spent on my health to be my “entertainment dollars” – though I certainly know people who do!
Try reading the Alan Watts book “Does It Matter?” and see if it changes the way you consider doing stuff, spending your money etc. It’s a rather unusual and interesting book. But…entertainment? Perhaps not.
