Field Guide to Remotes

Here’s a quick sketch I should have made years ago. No attempt at beauty or precision, just a down-n-dirty guide so that I can finally watch a movie without assistance.

I wanted to do this page quickly and without fuss, so I used a Uniball gel pen instead of my usual Micron 02 pen. The ink isn’t water soluble, but it sure smudged easily.

(My apologies for such a mundane post. I’m working on a large, precise drawing this week and needed to counter the care of that piece with something really fast. I’m still a good number of hours from finishing the former, so my regular journaling is taking a backseat.)

  1. Jean: This is not a mundane sketch as I see it. It reminds me of the time I needed to quickly change the TV channel using my remote that sits on a nearby table along with my wireless phone. I reached for the remote and instead picked up the wireless phone. When the TV channels would not respond to my remote, I checked the remote and discovered the silly reason.

  2. I have been struggling with the same issue: how to change from TV over to watching a DVD. Wish my remotes matched yours, but I have Sony and other makers on my 3 remotes. Fun to know I am not alone in this craziness of technology. I want to be able to use one remote to do all of this.
