I Like to Watch

I’ve been watching a lot of films lately, which is a lot of fun. Much of that is due to subscribing to a DVD-by-mail service called Zip.ca. You add films to your Ziplist (which is like the Netflix queue) and then they are shipped to you. Since I’ve signed up I haven’t been able to get the number of films on my list below 200. That’s because I keep adding films to the list. What is great about it is that it makes it possible to fill in gaps in my viewing habits. Lately I’ve been navigating through a fairly rich vein of French cinema where I’ve been able to alternate back and forth from Nouvelle Vague to more recent (and related) films such as Sur Mes Levres (Read My Lips), De battre mon coeur s’est arrêté (The Beat That My Heart Skipped), and Rois et reine (Kings and Queen). It is very good to be able to see some of the great work that has been done and it’s an inspiration as well. I love watching films.

Up next Bad Metaphor 3 I’ve uploaded the third Bad Metaphor podcast by John and myself today. It’s about publicity this time and John and I talk about being famous as well More Bad Metaphors John and I have been busy with things, but we have managed to create two more Bad Metaphor podcasts and you’re more than welcome to listen to them.
