Initial Visit?

Thanksgiving

Netflix is one of the things for which I am thankful. Netflix is Al Gore’s greatest idea since coming up with the internet.

There’s no video store in this town other than Blockbuster. Can you imagine such a thing? A store that rents edited versions of movies to prevent offending families? There’s one ‘art’ theater here, but it’s been showing Casino Royale and Happy feet for the past couple of weeks, so there you are. If you’re on it too, send me your email address and we can become Netflix buddies. It doesn't entail the benefits of fuck buddies, but it also doesn’t entail uncomfortable introductions and jealousy.

The other thing I like about Netflix is it tracks of all the movies I've rented with them. I seem to be enjoying lists lately, so here is the list of every movie I've rented since July of 2003:

?!

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas gets a rating equal to that of Eight Legged Freaks?!

Methinks there is a glitch in your ratings system.

Glad to see my personal favorite also got 5 stars, "Bridge over River Kwai." I love netflix, too, but wimped out when I heard there was fingernail removal in "Syriana." I actually sent it back unwatched. I didn't really like "Fear an Loathing in Las Vegas," either. I recommend "Red Violyn."

Four starts for Identity? :(

Your rental of Miami Vice brings back fond memories of when I tired in vain to kill you with my garage.
