I thought I’d try something different: making my Lame Post Friday post ON Friday. Of course here I sit with not much to say, but when has that ever stopped me?
I wanted to throw in a picture to, you know, pep things up. I just spent a ridiculous amount of time searching my Media Library for pictures I was sure I used at some point relating to this evening’s cheesy viewing. Alas, they were not to be found. So I share the above, because it is a movie in the same DVD collection as the one I am currently watching, The Atomic Brain.
Previously I watched The Vampire Bat. I am SO in the mood for old, low budget horror these days. Bring on the cheese! Incidentally, the Brain one just ended, and I put in Carnival of Souls. This one is low budget but not really cheesy. It is almost a masterpiece of atmosphere, creepy and weird.
I cannot remember what I shared about my television trials and tribulations. I know I talked about getting rid of cable, but did I mention that I could not even watch DVDs? Well I couldn’t, but now I can. Unfortunately, it is not the ideal DVD situation. All I can do is put the DVD in and hit Play. So I can’t arrow over when, for example, there are two movies on the same DVD. No pause or rewind either. I KNOW! First world problems!
Ah, here is a bit of half-baked philosophy, in which I like to indulge on Lame Post Friday: why are all my problems either of the first world variety or operator error? Discuss amongst yourselves.
