Musings on a Saturday Evening

Sep 07 2013 Published by under Life

  • Data analysis and watching/listening to college football go hand in hand quite well.
  • Call me a hipster.  I'm now shaving with a safety razor and it is working quite well as my thick facial gets caught in any modern multiblade razor.  Maybe next week I'll get a penny-farthing bicycle and join a barbershop quartet.
  • Never rely on equipment from a company whose name rhymes with smio smad.  As much trash as I talk about them, karma dictates I will do QA or customer support for them.
  • Too bad Netflix does monthly memberships and not weekly.  Their steaming catalog is really a hunk of shit if you haven't been living under a rock for a decade or so.
  • The past year of my life has had some up and a dickload of downs, but maybe things are starting to turn around for me.  I spent much of it in a dark place and contemplated some pretty dark thoughts, but I was able to pull through with the support of my family and friends.

    I found this page recently listing all Netflix series by their IMDB ranking. If you've already gone through all of those you are a machine.

    That is why I get their membership only every other year, giving them some time to refresh their offerings.

    I might join you on the QA answering service for said company.... 😉

    As for the other things, Hulu helps with the new series. I have netflix for "oldies and goodies" and hulu for newer ones (read; my pathetic additions that I don't talk about in sun light - revenge,scandal,nashville.... ^^) and the "Collection" (old great movies).Then netflix has the "made for them" specials, but I guess you already have seen those? (Orange is the new black, House of cards [remake], hemlock grove etc)
    I've been lining up some new series like: Top of the lake and Mystery Masterpiece too though, and the British series. For all else, I fear 'tis only paying for [amazon/other provider] or bad-streaming.

    Hope things get better this year, more ups and not the downs!

    As a side, you might like Louie.... I find my male reinds love it whereas many of my girl friends with black humour like it (as do I), just can't watch more than two episodes in a row since they get a little too much...

    defined out the entire thing with no need side effect , people can take a signal.
