Doing the unthinkable

I can't believe I'm saying this but I just canceled my Netflix subscription. It's about damn time, too! I have had the same two movies for the last year and a half. Those movies are: Slumdog Millionaire and Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten. I watched about half of the Joe Strummer documentary but never really felt like I was in the mood for it and just never finished it. I love Joe Strummer, but apparently I don't love him enough to sit through a full 123 minutes of his life. Slumdog Millionaire, on the other hand, was never even removed from the waxy sleeve bearing its name and synopsis. Let this stand as proof that awards do not sway my viewing habits. I also haven't seen Avatar, you guys, and I'm pretty sure my life is fine.

I'm trying to see if perhaps there are other American cultural institutions I can reject just for fun. Suggestions welcome (but I'll never give up my Weight Watchers subscription)!


  1. i'd suggest rolling stone but that is about 10 years too late.

  2. I've had the same 3 movies since 2006 (seriously), but I use the streaming service just about every day.

    Recently, we've made it through 11 seasons of King of the Hill. You know, I never knew how awesome of a show it was.
