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?
