Have you tried Netflix? It's an online service where you queue up all the movies you could ever imagine and find them most days in your mailbox. Whereas I used to watch movies only on occasion, Iím now watching four, five, six movies a week. When I feel that itís too many, I just take NoDoz.
Recently I figured out my tailspin: I, like other simpletons, am compelled by a feeling of progress. Every time I watch a movie, I remove an item from some unseen to-do list. It doesn't matter that the list will never end; the important thing is that I make progress.
Netflix has me right where it wants me -- watching movies I would never rent at Blockbuster. Yesterday I saw a children's movie from Serbia! Who would have thought that claymation could be that horrible. But it wasnít a waste of time because I am building secret credits toward a degree in ... in ... Ebertology.
