HOW DO I UNPLUG

So today I’d like to discuss unplugging. Mostly because its really fucking hard for me to do lately.

Sturdy as a brick, and just as fast.

I mean, we all remember a time when there was no internet, right? But my dad has always worked with computers and thus there were several in the house. So even when I was a wee little lass I “plugged in”. We had some sweet, sweet computer games.

There was Freddi Fish; that game was GOLD.

There were the Zoombinis, hard as fuuuuuuuck.

There was a scary ass game about fairy tales that I can’t remember the name of…but it had this troll who gave me nightmares. Yes, I was afraid of trolls before the internet, the fear never ends…

There was also Math Blaster! AW YEAH, MATH IN SPACE – THIS IS AWESOME.

Speaking of space, I played the shit out of that space pin ball game that used to come standard with the old school Microsoft OS. I think I started playing that after I was introduced to the internet though. Regardless, I spent hours and hours of time on this thing that I can never get back.

Drawing this would have been impossible.

Oh and that game where you are skiing and that abominable snowman shows up and eats you…maybe this is why I’m not into snow.

[Edit]: Kauf reminded me of the name of this game! It was SKIFREE!!!

A few years later, I’d be playing those typing games at school too – you know like Mavis Beacon.

Even if I wasn’t playing games, I was experimenting with Microsoft Word. Me and my girl friend Heather were obsessed with walking and petting all the neighborhood dogs, so we deviced a plan to do so and get money out of it. DOG WALKING SERVICE. I’m not kidding, this happened. I wrote up a flyer in MS Word about our prices, pasted in some clip art and changed the font to Comic Sans (a font that I would come to hate if I saw it on any media outside of actual comic books).

Remember that little paper clip dude? He always had your back. He did get really annoying though…

These were all super fun and kept me at my dad’s computer pretty frequently.

So being “plugged in” is something that has been instilled in me long ago.

Fast forward to today – where I have a netbook and a desktop – I feel almost spoiled. Granted my netbook travels at the speed of light, if the speed of light were brutally beaten with a sledge hammer, ran over by a car and is currently in a coma, being kept alive using a ventilator. And my desktop was made in 2007…soooo 6 years ago. His memory is going in his old age, but he’s still trucking. I don’t have any of those fancy doo-hickies, like tablets or e-readers, or a computer that works… But I’m still “plugged in.”

It’s hard to unplug these days. Mostly because my classes are online, so I have to constantly be checking those and talking to my group project members. Equally difficult is the fact that my best friends are online, I mean I could just text them the whole day, but its faster to just chat them up on Steam or Skype. And lets say that I just want to sit back and relax and watch a movie – OH WAIT, NETFLIX IS ONLINE TOO.

Do you see where I’m going with this? Unplugging is hard to do.

The only time I’m truly unplugged is if I’m reading a book, which is usually when I’m studying at Barnes and Noble or doing it for fun before bed.

I remember I used to be unplugged way more often, but that was during my first bachelor’s degree, when all the people I loved were walking distance from me. And if they weren’t walking distance, they were just a short drive away. Hanging out then was much easier to do without “plugging in.”

But even then…I would go back to my dorm and hop on my computer, log into Guild Wars…

I think unplugging is nearly impossible now.

Breaking Netflix – Week 2

Well guys, it sounds like we got something out of watching season 1 of The League. Be it a new understanding of fantasy football, or how to be an asshole to your friends. Good times.

I can add season 2 to our list of future things to watch, as I mentioned before, Rafi is one of the more deranged characters of the show and I really feel that you guys should meet him. Also, Daniella says we have to discuss “el cuñado”! LOL! So we should make this happen.

This week some people are on a time crunch, so I thought we’d try a movie. Short n’ sweet.

I keep seeing this one movie on Netflix called Side Effects.

It’s got an 84% on Rotten Tomatoes, and its got Rooney Mara & Catherine Zeta Johns – who are boss. It also stars Jude Law and Channing Tatum.

The super quick run down of what we’re getting into: an experimental anti-depressant is prescribed to a female patient and then the shit hits the fan. 

Run time is 106 minutes, so hopefully its something you can watch before bed, or whenever convenient.

Below is a trailer that may excite you for our adventure.

15% of Adults are offline, bunch of hipsters

A new estimate reports that 15% of Americans, ages 18 and older, are “offline.” As in, no internets.

According to an article on Pew Internet, there are several reasons why these adults choose not to use the internet. There’s a whole list of reasons, ranging from not having a computer at all, to thinking its a waste of time. But the biggest reason that people don’t use the internet, “Just Not Interested.”

Dang. Shot down like a bad date.

But, the thing that I really didn’t understand was the statistic: 14% of these adults had used the internet (at least once) and decided to stop.

This got me thinking. What kind of circumstances would have to happen for me to never use the internet again? 

Scenario 1: If I lost access to the internet.

Let’s say that I could no longer afford to pay for the internet, or my computer exploded, or both. I still foresee myself going to the local library or my university library and hogging a computer for as many hours as  I need. So, nope, I still use the internet in this case.

Scenario 2If I were stranded on a deserted island.

I’d be fucked. I have completely forgotten all the survival skills I learned in the Girl Scouts. Wait, did we learn those? Yeah, I’m super fucked. So, this would probably be the only scenario – that I can come up with – where I would be forced to stop using the internet.

But, if I survived, you know what I’d want to do when I came back in contact with civilization? Blog about it.

Scenario 3: If I died. 

Yes, being dead stops me from using a lot of things.

The problem with all 3 of these scenarios is that I can’t control them. Maybe I can try to work more to save money to buy a new computer or resume payments to my internet provider. But all of these situations were against my will. I can’t see myself willingly giving up the internet.

On a global scale, there’s a crazy number of people who don’t even have access to the internet. But if they were introduced to it, I wonder how many would chose to stop. Would it still be 14%?

I mean, I’m old enough to remember what it was like growing up without the internet. I still had fun. I may not be a fan of social media, but I mean, I have to admit I was excited to create my first email account. Even with youtube and Netflix feeding me all sorts of entertainment, I know it wouldn’t be impossible for me to go back to exclusively reading books/graphic novels/comics. I could do it. I just…choose the internet.

So, my friends, now I am curious…What kind of circumstances would have to happen for YOU to never use the internet again?

BREAKING NETFLIX

There comes a time in every little girl’s life when you have to decide wtf you’re going to do when you are mind numbingly bored. It has to be something so crazy, so intense, so affordable…yet broad enough to include all of your friends who live all over the God damn place.

This is that time. This is my time. The time to introduce Project: Breaking Netflix. 

Jesse Dutchman and SuperSaiyan White

That’s right folks. I’m bringing in the big guns, the online streaming guns. I invite you to watch shit with me and then discuss in posts in this blog. It’s the closest thing  I can do to feel like I’m hanging out with actual humans. Human friends. Don’t worry if you can’t watch the show we all chose immediately. I’ll do an end of the week or biweekly post where we can all discuss it, so you have time to catch up. Also, the post where we decide on what to watch will remain spoiler free, but the discussion post can talk about any and all details of the show. Are you excited yet? Cause I am.

So far, I know of two people who will be joining me on this magical journey (Kiam and Luuk).  Last night Kiam and I threw around some ideas about what we wanted to watch, and ended up with The League.

Da dada duh duh da da duhhh

The league is a show about six friends (Pete, Kevin, Ruxin, Dr. Andre, Taco, and Jenny) and the terrible shit they put each other through in order to win their fantasy football league. Katie and Pete are married, Pete and Taco are brothers, and everyone else are old buds.

Season 1 has 6 episodes, which is super short and convenient. SO WHO WANTS TO WATCH IT WITH US? Daniela? Natty Cakes? Cactaur? Anyone?

Let me know :D

For those who are not interested in The League, what series would you want to see next? Shoot some ideas out there! Here are some that I recommend we partake in…

TELEVISION SERIES:

  • Breaking Bad
  • Portlandia
  • Derek
  • Orange is the new black
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Homeland
  • The Killing
  • The Power Rangers
  • Adventure Time
  • Bob’s Burgers
  • Calling the Midwives 
  • Bomb Girls
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia 

MOVIES:

  • Side Effects Completed: Week 2.
  • My idiot brother
  • I’m a cyborg, but that’s okay
  • Good Bless America
  • The Ambassador
  • The Sea Inside

DOCUMENTARIES:

  • Fat, sick and nearly dead
  • Pink Ribbon Inc.

(Super Saiyan M suggestionsPotato suggestionsKymbohydrate suggestions, Daniela’s suggestions, Cactaur’s suggestions)

I will edit this post to update your suggestions. Also we don’t have to do series, if there’s a movie or documentary that you are interested in comment with those as well!!! I fucking love documentaries (though I may have already seen the majority of the ones available on Netflix) and a movie may be easier for peeps to get through if they decide they don’t like it.  If The League turns out to really tickle your fancies, we can go on to the other seasons. It’s all negotiable folks! LETTUS BEGIN!!

OH SHIT! NETFLIX IS IN THE NETHERLANDS NOW!

THAT’S RIGHT, YOU READ THE TITLE CORRECTLY!

NETFLIX HAS FINALLY ARRIVED IN THE NETHERLANDS, or should i say Neetflix (its a joke, because the Dutch love double vowels).

This may be insignificant to anyone who is not in the Netherlands, or who already had it. But, this is exciting for me because that means my pen pal and I can actually watch the same things and talk about them! OH LAWD, ITS A MIRACLE!

I’d like to introduce to the blog, my Dutch pen pal, Svemmy. Svemmy is not his real name, but I don’t know if he wants me to disclose it or not. So now when I talk about Arrested Development, Svemmy can watch it and actually know wtf I’m talking about when I hint ever so slightly that there is always money in the banana stand.  Svemmy can go balls deep into Sons of Anarchy. Even Dexter!

Apparently though there are a lot of shows that are still not available for him, such as Portlandia and The League. But its cool. It takes time to watch all the stuff that is currently available anyway. And I can attest that time really escapes you when you decide to indulge in Netflix. Oh the hours of life…

This is a picture of Svemmy being choked by Darth Vadar. Perhaps the last picture we will ever see of him.  Death by Sith Lord; shit happens.
