Banjo versus TV week 107: A burst of banjo is needed

A check-in on the Banjo versus TV project — J.R.'s ongoing plan to spend more time on his banjo than on TV. This post covers 3/14/2010 through 3/20/2010.
Banjo 626 hrs, TV 624 hours

Not a lot happened this week, banjo-wise or TV-wise. So maybe I should go meta and blog about an aspect of the Banjo versus TV project that you might have noticed.

The banjo has been losing ground to the TV. In fact, the TV has nearly caught up with the banjo. Take a look at the last six months.

Banjo 545 hrs, TV 480 hours Banjo 570 hrs, TV 500 hours Banjo 590 hrs, TV 534 hours Banjo 601 hrs, TV 584 hours Banjo 615 hrs, TV 605 hours Banjo 626 hrs, TV 624 hours

So what to do? The answer is, of course:


(And Shush! to any of you who might be thinking '...or less TV.' That's not the point.)

This has happened before. Take a look at a chart of cumulative banjo (blue) and TV (red) hours.

See how the lines come close to touching and then I have a burst of banjo time? That's what I need to do next.
