All of these are signs of the end of the world as I know it... I called Comcast and reduced our cable subscription to the lowest possible that still gives me access to "Defiance," "The Strain," and "The Walking Dead." At the end of the call I'd reduced my monthly bill by $85. I cancelled my Hulu subscription. I decided to empty out my storage room, which means getting … [Read more...] about It’s the end of the world as we know it
