My wife has a subscription to People

So Clay Aiken is on the cover of People (which was lying handily on the floor in our library bathroom) and apparently he's come out as gay, which, according to some of the radio I've been listening to is no big surprise to anyone. BUT - according to the photo on the cover of People he's also becoming a woman. Either that or someone went a little slaphappy with the old Photoshop.

Netflix thou confuseth me.

I've been a member of Netflix for neigh on three years now and over the course of that time I've gotten several mailers from them, and today I got an email from them, all along the same lines. The cover, and in this case the subject line touts a great member bonus.

"Special member bonus inside."

Yet, when I fall for opening it what I'm presented with is a coupon that I can give my friends or family to get one month free. Given that Netflix will pretty much give anyone at anytime and anyplace a free month, how exactly is this a "Special member bonus" for me???

Ah - my mistake. Apparently the Bonus is that when they redeem this free bonus trial I get one free bonus rental. Hmmm... let's see... most of the time I don't have the time to watch the three movies I'm entitled to... so I ask again, how is this exactly a bonus for me?

The Paying Gig


It's been a while since I posted here. Well, things have been busy. This industrial I'm working on, I just realized yesterday, is feature length. I mean, quite literally. At its current run time it clocks in a t 101 minutes, which easily qualifies as feature length. It's funny because I've been working on it for months and never once did it occur to me to do the math on that. Anyway, needless to say, I've been busy.
