Movie Choices

I was thinking the other day that today, in the Year of Our Oreo 2008, that when I’m in the mood for a movie, there are an absurd amount of options. I’ve broken them into categories for your viewing pleasure:

Ways I’ve been able to pick a movie for a while now:

  • Browsing my own DVDs (or, if I’m feeling adventurous, VHS tapes)
  • Seeing what’s on Lifetime Movie Network
  • Watching whatever DVD I’ve got in from Netflix

Ways to pick a movie that are new:

  • Watching a Netflix Video-on-Demand movie on my PC
  • Watching a free on-demand film on FiOS
  • Hulu

Ways I no longer pick movies:

  • Local mom-and-pop rental stores, because there are none

Ways I’ll be able to pick movies in the future:

  • Thinking about them and then they’ll be projected to the inside of my eyelids so I can watch them while I sleep

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
