Holiday Weekend Schedule

Basically, come back Tuesday. I’m unlikely to have any big number of posts here.

Tonight I discovered that I can use Hulu with Firefox again. And then I looked at the list of movies. There are things there I want to see:

H.H. Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer
The Mindscape of Alan Moore
Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters
Privilege
Salesman
Signs of Life
Sisters
Walkabout
Wings of Desire

All but the first two I’ve seen before. But most of them not for bloody decades. So it’s time to see if this formative material holds up and if I can still see in it what I saw in it ages and ages ago.

I doubt I’ll get all seen in the next three days. Even the best of video is draining to watch. Three hours is really my upper limit in a day, even though things like Forbrydelsen and Persons Unknown pushed me past that. Plus, Doctor Who pops up on Saturday, and I should watch that and do a post.

To whoever is in charge of Hulu: Why the hell isn’t the original Kung Fu series up? I don’t need all the episodes. Just some from the first season will do. I could do with a series with a humble main character who winds up kicking some evil ass. It’s inspirational.

Update: Most viewing has been cancelled. See this post. Still, come back Tuesday. This doesn’t change my determination not to do a bunch of posts this weekend.

  1. Oooh, I’ll have to check out that first movie. Speaking of which, have you read Erik Larson’s “The Devil in the White City?” It is available as an ebook.
