Netflix laptop library anticipation
Few minutes into the  Netflix , he grew bored. Why was this show that was painstakingly produced less interesting then bits of information he surfed on the internet? House prices. Someone else's dinner or vacation. A random thought someone tweeted.

Godot quickly came up with an explanation. It was because shows...

Godot that night he waited on his phone. Swapping between instagram, tinder, and zillow. Like almost roulette hoping that this time when he opened it will be the time he'd get a house, a girlfriend, maybe even just a like?

He knew also he should have gone to sleep like...

Hector watched the cortisol infused rats scuttling around.

People had places to be. And they had to have been there ten minutes ago. deadline s were past due. And the  coffee was no longer hitting. Though they still needed the coffee. That was not up for discussion. Even when the  caffeine...

13 Reasons Why

Youtube Wikipedia Spotify Netflix off-grid 13 Reasons Why
So, two episodes ago, I started watching 13 Reasons Why ("Tote Mädchen Lügen Nicht" - "Dead Girls don't lie"). It has been on my watchlist since it came out. I remember it releasing an enormous “scream” in public.

But I came back to it a different way. Recently I started binging...

in the name of love

What a man fears most when finally entering a good relationship

is its end.

It's hard to blame him.

After countless days sipping meaningless information on the internet

and pointless dinners with other people who resemble them,

they have come to see life as the Netflix home screen.

An offering of something that once thrilled him

I could finally understand why he had wanted to write a  graphic novel back in  college . They were like a  Netflix show, but on paper. I thought of him while flipping through the pages, feeling the sheets against my fingers.

Content Overflow
Haha these days while Brandon pretends not to read fiction and i pretend not to go on 
, I actually will claim that I've become mostly bored with a lot of the video content. There are some that stand out but mostly i kind of just use video content as a thing to put on when i want to just kill time. Might eat some snacks or just fuck around on a 
group chat
and have some laughs.

When I'm being deliberate about my time I almost always enjoy and get more out of reading WHO HAS TIME FOR FICTION?! than video.

So that makes me actually think. WHO HAS TIME TO WATCH FICTION?! 

Judging by how many 
 and other streaming services subscriptions there are, MANY!

Content Overflow

Netflix Youtube twitch Amazon Prime Video Disney+ Content movies novels Udemy Content Overflow
Netflix , Amazon Prime Video , Disney+ , Youtube , twitch and many other Platforms have one thing in common: Content . I remember a statistic about YouTube that stated that 500 hours of Content are uploaded every minute. That's 500 days of new stuff to watch every day.

Sure, I...

The Witcher
rather than a 

But at least a Polish game studio developed the game. 

I didn't even know it was Polish until at Christmas my girlfriend's uncle told me he had grown up on The Witcher the novel. All i associated with those two words "the witcher" was the video game and the netflix show that i'd heard so much about. so i was surprised that this middle aged polish man was speaking so nostalgically about "the witcher"

turned out it was Polish! lol

Netflix style Vs Others
I like to think I consume content actively... so I'd rather be able to do 
deep work
when consuming a show. As in I don't want to only watch one hour a week and get stuck in conversating about it with my friends and coworkers.

I didn't watch 
Game of Thrones
for this reason until it was over. 

I think 
 does a better job at allowing content consumers who do it in a deep way rather than some social activity to do their thang.
