I signed up for Netflix!!!

Did that title deserve THREE !‘s? I don’t think so. Anyways, I signed up on Netflix the other day because I’ve been getting more interested in film lately and just thought it would be fun. Well, if you know me well, you know I’m the kind of person that goes to a bookstore but doesn’t read, goes to a fancy restaurant but orders a cheeseburger, and goes to the grocery store to buy light bulbs and packing tape. So, I sign up for Netflix and the first 3 movies I get are a sports bloopers DVD, the Mitch Hedberg standup DVD, and The Office Season 1, but the BBC version. Pretty much all of these 3 movies sucked…The sports bloopers one was all this old footage and just pretty lame…The Office had me snoring after the first 10 minutes (I need to get the American version), and the Mitch Hedberg DVD was super short. He’s funny and all, but I don’t smoke weed, so I didn’t laugh as much as i probably would have had I been high on the cheeba. So anyways, those are all back in the mail and the next few I have coming to me are the first Beavis and Butthead season 1 DVD, Paid In Full, and Rushmore. Maybe those won’t suck as much. I know all the people that read THE BRILLIANCE woke up this morning thinking ‘damn, I wish I knew if Chuck signed up on Netflix and if so, what he’s been getting from there?’ So here you have it. I should give Netflix some love though, they are FAST and have pretty much every movie you could want. I know they aren’t new news, but it’s interesting and new to me. AAAAA+++++ Would buy again. **Disclaimer: I know I’m going to have a bunch of doofuses saying ‘you didn’t like The Office? but it’s so funny! dry humor dude!’ No, I didn’t care for it much, but I didn’t give it much of a chance. Maybe I need to watch it with more people. Eh.
