Netflix, anyone?

I've had a Netflix subscription for years. Pretty much since it started. I love it. In the past year or two maybe, they've begun allowing people with PCs to watch movies instantly through the computer, now also a device that connects to the tv and the Xbox 360. Whatever. I am proud to live a Microsoft-free life. In the past two weeks, they've finally begun allowing people with Macs to watch movies instantly.

Don't get me wrong, I liked Netflix a lot in the past. Now? Well, let's just say, "OH MY FREAKING YOU KNOW WHO I LOVE NETFLIX MORE THAN EVER!" Yes, peeps, I can watch movies instantly. You know what this means, don't you? I can watch Weird Science and Eraserhead any time I want. Instantly. Seriously. Anthony Michael Hall in his finest movie, with a soundtrack provided by Oingo Boingo. If you'll excuse me, I have to figure out what pocket protector I'm going to wear tomorrow.

If you haven't signed up for Netflix, you now have no excuse.

I have Blockbuster online, but never use it. It's a great $9 a month well spent.

Right, like my gym membership, or as I call it...my monthly donation to the YMCA.

I love Macs too! Netflix - if only they existed here in Sweden.

I found that I recently have neglected everything else in my life because I could download movies instantly! It kind of got rid of the whole "not t.v." lifestyle for me. So, basically I'm back to just watching the movies I get in the mail- two a week. that's enough.

Although, I confess, I did watch the first episode of "The A Team" the other day on instant download. IT was called "Mexican Sleigh Ride". That has to be the worst title I've ever heard!

I was up until 12:30 last night watching Weird Science. Maybe this isn't so great after all.
