Chix, hix, flix bix quix, Netflix!

Far be it from me, a great American patriot, to turn down the request of another great American patriot in revealing some of my deepest personal information to you, the unwashed hippie masses, namely, the last ten flicks in my rental queue -- or, if you prefer, those that are heathen luddites, the last ten rented the old fashioned way, absorbing scowls and thinly-veiled insults from one of your fellow minimum-wage food stamp junkies behind the counter.

Oh, relax. As I once famously remarked, "I would hope that a wise white male with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

Touchez Pas au Grisbi
Martha Argerich: Evening Talks
Hellsing Ultimate vol. 1
Hellsing Ultimate vol. 2
Hellsing Ultimate vol. 3
Hellsing Ultimate vol. 4
Leif Ove Andsnes: Ballad for Edvard Greig

Most would assume that Priceless was the choice of my sometimes-better-half. Not so, for I haven't drooled over Audrey Tatou in awhile. The Hellsing Ultimate is some vampire anime gig for my lunatic offspring, the rest being a mix of frog gangster that for some inexplicable reason I've never seen so very sorry Sarkozy, old man music, giant radioactive ants and eye-talian horror from one of the masters whose best work is probably his daughter.

Ne vous inquiétez pas, mademoiselle, I'll save you from the rampaging zombie horde.

"After you finish drooling, tag someone."

Oh yeah, you, you and you.

[Gasp] No sports movies??!

sunshine said...

Ooooooo!!!! I've been tagged. :D
My sister in law and I go to the movies every week so I don't rent a lot. This is going to take some thinking on my part... hmmmm.....
Perhaps I'll just get my cable bill and see what my little buggers have ordered off of the tv this past month. I'm sure I've seen all of them too.
Ciao for Niao!!!

sunshine said...

P.S. I haven't heard of one of those movies you've seen ....

TF said...

ooooh... Asia.

*keeps drooling, there being no tagging needs to impare said drooling*

...the unwashed hippie masses...

Much to the chagrin of most everyone around me I really do try to live up to that title as a unwashed hippie.

I'll jump on the meme tomorrow, and looking forward to it.

Snave said...

I don't watch enough movies anymore. We went to the local theater to see "Taken" a few months back, and then went to see "Star Trek" a couple of weeks ago. I watched "Religilous" recently, and have a copy of the old ABC TV mini-series "Wild Palms" I plan to watch one of these days... sigh...

Guess I spend too much time avoiding taking showers and mainly being a filthy hippie to allow much cinematic culture into my life. I'm more into other kinds of cultures, as in growing them in various places on my body.

Rental queue? What's that mean?

"those that are heathen luddites, the last ten rented the old fashioned way, absorbing scowls and thinly-veiled insults from one of your fellow minimum-wage food stamp junkies behind the counter" -- Behind what counter? Don't you have to go to a movie theater to see movies? Damn that was a long nap.

A willingness to be trailing edge about movies results in eventually being able to see them on TV for much less trouble and expense.

Anonymous said...

I can't remember the last time I rented a movie. Is there anything out there worth renting anymore? All my entertainment comes from this blog.

Kvatch said...

My queue is full up with television shows that I didn't get to watch because I no longer have cable. The Wire; Dexter; Weeds. Good stuff!

Liberality said...

Oh, she is one foxy chick! Luv on her!!!

Hey, I've tagged you :)

susan said...

Up until yesterday I was a netflix virgin but, alas, no more. Play Station downloads haven't been able to supply our need and the only video rental place we'll consider patronizing is off our beaten path - never mind it takes us an hour to choose two movies. So I looked at the coupon for a free month of rentals and took the plunge.. Yay me.

Übermilf said...

I think you should tell us what snacks you enjoy most while doing all this passive watching of sports and movies.

Mary Ellen said...

I've never done the netflex thingy, besides there's nothing to watch anyway. I think they should bring back the old Wonder Woman series, that was chock full of fun for everyone. :-)

Dean Wormer said...

Them! is such a classic horror film. Great music and atmosphere. It's probably the best example of the fifties horror in my mind.

La Belette Rouge said...

I just endured Audrey in "The Davinci Code" ls night. She was the only reason I didn't insist on the channel being changed.

Priceless was no Amelie but it was watchable. The guy in it was kind o cute.

Beach Bum said...

Sunday was a pain and Monday was crap, didn't get a chance to write much about your meme. Will continue on it tomorrow.

Randal Graves said...

BE, I already own the only one I need, Major League!

sunshine, that's alright, I haven't heard of any of them either, I just randomly picked some.

TF, couldn't have said it better myself.

BB, that's alright, for if you get too filthy, you can simply take a dip in the Atlantic.

snave, have you tried growing some herbs in the dirt? Save a few bucks at the grocery store!

tom, the pictures....they're...MOVING!

SWA, good point, especially since I think it's $38 for a small popcorn these days.

nunly, no wonder you're so disenchanted with life. ;-)

kvatch, aw crap, those last two are two more than I have to see.

liberality, oh, that she is. A tag? Great, tomorrow's post is done, thanks! ;-)

susan, I didn't get any hot Netflix action until recently myself, but I think it's worth it.

übermilf, alas, I don't wash down the chips with American brews, but you can pretend I do.

nunly, that IS on DVD, you of all people should know that!

dean, you just might be right. I really should buy a copy of the damn thing.

LBR, I haven't seen that, and I'm not sure even she could bring me to.

BB, no rush, file it away and use it when you've got nothing else.

Freida Bee, MD said...

Oh, I never told you I saw this and will get around to it when I'm damn well ready.

I'm sorry. I mean, "Thank you sir, may I have another?"

Thanks for thinking about me back on that day.

Dr. Zaius said...

OK, "Them!" is pretty cool. The rest sound too highbrow form me. Even the Anime.
