What is turnoffyour.tv and how did it come about?

What is turnoffyour.tv and how did it come about? Well, it should be said, that it is not currently what it was originally intended to be, but it is slowly getting there. turnoffyour.tv came about when a friend and I were talking about the what a financial sink it was to subscribe to cable television. We were both fairly pissed off at how much of our money the cable company was taking for the handful of shows that we found interesting, so we set about finding real ways we could save money on this front. He took the first step, and a dramatic one it was. He turned off his cable television and told his provider to turn his Internet access to the cheapest tier offered.

    Don’t look at me like I am a monster
    Frown out your one face, but with the other (you)
    Stare like a junkie into the TV
    Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
    Watches him die,
    Hands to the sky cryin “why, oh why?”

    Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
    Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
    You all need it too – don’t lie.

    Why can’t we just admit it?
    Why can’t we just admit it?
    We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’
    Neither the brave nor bold
    Nor brightest of stories told
    We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’

    I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
    Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
    You all feel the same so why can’t we just admit it?
