sidetracked

i had something in mind, something i was going to write after work tonight.

but...



how can one write, when this movie is on?

so, yeah. now it's 5am, and i'm still sitting here watching a movie that i've already seen.
although, i should point out that i've only seen this movie 4 or 5 times.
there are other movies that are still capable of rendering me useless, even though i've seen them 60 or 70 times.

do you guys have any movies like that?
ones that you've seen so much you could do most of the dialogue by heart, but for some reason you can't help but watch them when they show up on the television?

so, anyway.
i know you're all disappointed because you come here every hour in the hopes that i will have written something funny or something otherwise worth reading. but i have a movie to get back to.
and then some sleeping to do.

in the meantime, why don't you tell me about your movies?
you must have at least one or two that you'll stay up late for, even though you already know what's going to happen.

spill it!

St Elmos Fire, The Breakfast Club, Goonies, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles (Jake Ryan!!!) Holy Shit did I grow up in the 80s or what????? There is more too, but I can't bring myself to do it.

Well, it's just your standard geek cliche, but I'll pop in good old Lord of the Rings when I just need to escape the world for a while.

When stupid stuff that shouldn't bother us starts bothering me anyway (like money) I'll start Lord of the Rings later in the evening and stay up watching it after the wife goes to bed. It's so visually complex that it actually takes some concentration to watch all three hours (per movie), even though I've seen them a trillion times. By the time it's over, I guess the Longbottom Leaf has cleared my head.

I was never a big fan of fantasy/sci-fi, but I can watch those movies indefinitely. Something about drinking the Entwash, I guess.
