  • Feature request: unwatch

    Streaming services track what I have watched so I can see the progress. But only your first time through a series. If I start over, then it can be confusing where I am. I might start over because I didn’t finish and want to give it another chance. Or I want to watch a series […]

  • Mixed-ish

    Because representation matters, I am looking forward to this spin-off of Black-ish.

  • Social Currency

    This is from Douglas Rushkoff who is known for his infecting marketing with the idea of viral marketing. Observe yourself the next time you’re listening to a joke. You may start by listening to the joke for the humor – because you really want the belly laugh at the end. But chances are, a few […]

  • Netflix Content Expiring Jan 1st

    Yesterday a friend pointed out Netflix is dropping some content on January 1st. This was in relation to the movie of a book we read for a book club earlier this month. So last night, while watching the movie, I noted through the web site all the movies in my list set to expire by […]

  • Inconsistent Experiences

  • J.R.?

    James Richard Perry has the initials J. R. Just like the central character from the show Dallas? Sorry, I have to go fall on the floor laughing.

  • Library Netflix Model

    I tend to buy books. As Heather pointed out on Flickr, I could save lots of money by checking books out from the library. I don’t for one big reason. I am lazy. Most of my purchases fall within a sweet spot of wanting to read more about something because I heard about it on […]

  • TV Schedules

    It seems to me television programmers between college and professional football there would be at least 1,000 games per year which would provide the necessary data points for understanding how long these games typically last. Yet, consistently the games which start on time still run about an hour or more longer than the 3 hour […]

  • Writer’s Block: Infamous

    January 28, 1986 At school, a teacher knocked on the door. Our teacher went to find out what was wrong. We were told to go into another room and sit on the floor. About half the kids on the hall were packed into one of the two rooms with a TV. The talking heads were […]
