Random Factoid #433

4 10 2010

Today’s factoid was inspired by Simon/Ripley of Four of Them.  I read her post “You want multitasking?” this weekend which consisted of only this brief paragraph:

I’ve somehow managed to alternate between The Wayward CloudBoxing HelenaHe Died With a Falafel in His Hand, and Treeless Mountain since last night. Granted, I haven’t finished any of them…

I find myself doing the same thing all the time, and I can’t stand it.  I find myself starting a ton of movies, getting distracted, and turning them off.  Usually the distraction is me falling asleep…

Right now, I am 15 minutes into “Solitary Man,” 10 minutes into “Pollock,” 40 minutes into “Control,” 7 minutes into “Down to the Bone,” 2 minutes into “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” and I’m probably forgetting countless others.  This fragmented moviewatching style totally doesn’t work for me, yet I’m having to resort to it more and more because of my demanding schedule.

Anybody else have this dismembered moviewatching style as well?

Do you set this demanding schedule yourself? If so, it might be time to dial back a bit. I’ve been having similar issues, watching far too many movies because I think that there’s an interest out there. I occasionally check my viewing stats which tend to suggest that there isn’t – or, at least, to any great degree. Therefore, I’m writing too much for no one other than myself, which is a bit silly. I’ve agreed with myself to take it a bit easier; maybe you could, too. I thoroughly enjoy your site, and I wouldn’t want to lose it through burn-out.

Aw, I’m referenced!

All these movie portals suck. I got the TV, Netflix, regular DVDs, and my Parent’s iPod that also plays Netflix.

I still haven’t finished watching Summer of Sam, and Trainspotting. I find myself in these time holes and it sucks, cause I never can fixate my mind and time on one movie sometimes.
