Subscription Addiction

 Today's topic for BEDJ is on Movies, TV, music...etc. etc...and I must say I think I have a subscription problem...Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Spotify.... all such great ways to waste time and procrastinate. 

 Believe it or not I hardly have any patience for anything but documentaries.... they are the only thing that keeps my attention these days. I don't really know why that is... guess I am just not really into fictional characters or stories at the moment. I am kind of on a real life kick. My "personalized" Netflix suggestions suggest that I am a complete nerd...and I am not ashamed one bit. Netflix, you truly do know me. Although Netflix seems to know my taste in films these days Pandora still doesn't quite get the music right. They only make you believe for a minute that the channel you created will actually generate songs that are similar to the artist you created the channel for. Oh and be careful on what you thumbs up. One wrong thumbs up and you are going to hear Justin Bieber everyday for the rest of that channels life. Don't screw up your Pandora channel. Thumbs up at your own risk.

I am also a proud Hulu plus subscriber. I can watch TV without actually watching TV. Therefore, I can still qualify as one of those douche bags that says "I don't watch much TV" and pretend I don't have time, am to good for it, and don't know what is really going on in the world when in reality I just watch that shiz on my computer.

I have also gotten into Spotify lately, which is great because you can listen to whatever you want and don't have to thumbs up or thumb down anything The only risk is when you are listening to something that is your guilty pleasure and it ends up telling everyone on Facebook what you are listening to. Listen at your own risk, or turn on private session....then again I could be the only one who is ashamed of the music they listen to.

What are your guilty listening and watching pleasures? ( Keep it R rated please ) :P

  1. i made a separate account for spotify which isn't hooked up to Facebook. Didn't like the fact that people were commenting on my music choice, especially family.

    It's still a shame that Hulu and Netflix aren't available here, i'm still hoping they'll fix that soon.
