Oh, and also I love the channel that plays music videos from the mid-90s! Just as boring as today's, but with bonus nostalgia for bands like this one:
Oh, The Moffatts. Canada's bargain version of Hanson. Who I also love.
Anyway, these days (just like back in the day), one in every 50 videos is pretty good. Pink does interesting stuff, as does Beyonce sometimes and Lady Gaga almost always. But 49/50 videos is a guy yelling rap at me while hos dance in the background. The only discernable difference between 1995 and now is... the rappers have more tattoos? The hos have more piercings?
ANYWAY. I love TV. It will be hard to give it up when the cheap TV thing ends in two months. But while I have TV, I am making the most of it by...
Hosting a frugal Oscars party.

Now, I am still in the brainstorming stages of this. As always, I an balancing on the fine line between being frugal/thrifty and being a total asshole.
Frugal/thrifty = using ingredients I already have to make tasty snacks for guests
Total asshole = not offering any food, hoarding the food guests bring and using these things for lunch next week.
Food ideas? Frugal party ideas?
