Black Sabbath 'The Dio Years'
Spring is here and I can fully enjoy riding around in my truck Roxy with the windows down. And to make it even more pleasurable, the sound she was making since her engine was replaced has finally stopped. No longer does Roxy sound as if there’s a 700 pound cricket rubbing its legs together beneath the hood. She sounds normal and quiet. It’s starting to feel comfortable again.
The movies that I’ve been getting from Netflix have been really chokey lately. I gave Man Of The Year, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Holiday, and Candy all 2 stars which means that I “didn’t really like” them.
I tried watching Eragon and that joker was tossed from my DVD player in under 20 minutes. It got only 1 out of 5 stars. It was derivative crap! I guess they were trying to capitalize on the same kind of junk that is Lord Of The Rings. Ugh! How I hated that pile of rat feces!
Thank Buddha that I got one of my older rentals in the mix… MST3K: Mitchell. That should cleanse the palate of all that cinematic rubbish that I’ve been seeing lately. Odd though… A bad movie with hecklers at the bottom of the screen used to cleanse the palate… Sometimes those cats are hilarious.
I started putting new releases in alphabetical order at the top of my Netflix queue. I do it so I can kind of stay up to date with new releases. There’s also a randomness that I enjoy because I never truly know what I will get next because some are on “short wait” or “long wait”. And sometimes those little “waits” don’t matter because they will surprise me from time to time by sending me something I had no hope of getting soon.
Is that an OCD?
Since I started putting the new releases at the top of my queue… I started getting behind and a logjam has occurred with my regular rentals that aren’t so new. So I have decided to mix those jokers in with the new releases. But only 5 at a time are in play with the rotation.
Am I sick in some way?
I don’t know, but I’ve always enjoyed the randomness that life will most definitely present you with. Perhaps it’s a gambling thing with me, I don’t know.
But I don’t really gamble… I have only played the Powerball lottery once since we’ve had it in North Carolina. The first day they had the scratch lottery type of cards out, I purchased 5. I have yet to purchase anymore of them. So it’s not like I have a problem with randomness, I just enjoy all the probabilities.
One gem that I have discovered with Netflix… The failed FOX TV series Wonderfalls. There’s only 3 discs of this fine show that didn’t make it and so far its riding between 4 and 5 stars. I will tell you more about it when I finish it.
