I have been trying to think of a solution to a little household problem we have.
I really like to watch t.v. or movies and knit at the same time. I cannot just sit and knit without some other entertainment unless I am doing some really complicated knitting. Reading works too, but I can’t do that while I am doing lace or cables since I have to look at my hands so often.
Casey likes to read and we want to be in the same room so at least we are spending time with each other, even if we are doing different things. That causes a bit of a problem, as I am sure you can imagine. The t.v. is very distracting and he usually ends up half watching what I am watching, and half reading.
He is also not a big fan of the stupid shows that I watch. I can’t really blame him either. haha
I have been talking about joining NetFlix so then I can actually watch a quality movie instead of crap t.v. (or flipping around endlessly looking for something I can even tolerate!)
Casey found something even better! He is a resourceful lad.
Apparently, it does not have a monthly limit on how many movies you can rent. There are also more independent and foreign films for us yuppies. It also has member reviews, staff picks, articles, interviews, and a recommendation feature.
(Here is a post with more info about why GreenCine is better considered better than NetFlix… Thanks, Casey.)
I guess it doesn’t really solve our bigger problem of the t.v. distracting Casey but at least it will be interesting and cultural instead of brain rotting.
We just signed up, I will let you know how it goes!
