It’s funny how a film inclines you to feel sympathetic for its characters, despite their nefarious ways. Almost sort of a motion picture Stockholm Syndrome.
Like, while watching Das Boot, I totally want these seabourne Nazis to sink a British convoy.
Anyway, that’s the end of my “Ian’s temporarily sympathetic for the Nazis” section of the post.
My current watching habits include:
> Burn Notice (third season - repetitive and formulaic, but it’s all good fun. Plus, how can you argue with a show that features Bruce Campbell in every episode?)
> Sons of Anarchy (first season - this is an overlooked gem of a show.)
> True Blood (struggling to start off the first season - I don’t know why it’s so hard - it’s an okay show, it just hasn’t hit that “addictive” stride for me, yet.)
> Mad Men (fourth season - I am a die-hard fan. Woooo!)

“In 2010, servers were responsible for 2.5% of energy consumption in the United States. A further 2.5% of United States energy consumption was used by cooling systems required to cool the servers. It was estimated in 2010, that if trends continued, by 2020 servers would use more of the world’s energy than air travel.”
I’m not allergic to anything.
Except tedium, stupidity, and lies.
Brian: “Wow, you are REALLY pretty.”
Young Woman: “…thanks.”
Brian: “You know, uh… I wrote a book.”
Young Woman: “What’s that?”
Brian: “It’s like a long magazine.”
Young Woman: “Huh?”
Brian: “It’s like the Internet made out of a tree.”

“Until the mid 1920’s, students who were examining cadavers would wear black lab coats to show respect for the dead.”
One thing that still fills my heart with childlike fancy is letting go of a balloon and watching it rise into the sky until it disappears.
This is the most constructive thing you will watch all year.
Do it. DO IT NAO.
