Cool they can be friends with my kid Selection Bias, and if someone comments on how strange it is for two unusual but similar names to be best friends I can say "that's Selection Bias for ya!"

Oh I enjoyed this, thank you for linking. Lots of thoughts swirling around my head, and I'm reminded of a film movement that I read about once on wikipedia and can't find again that was about "capturing reality" where the rules involved no editing of any kind, no scripting, etc and even that movement has the aspect of curation to it!

tracking movies is fun, I did a film club with some friends for about a year and we have a big spreadsheet of ratings for films, it's cool to go back and go huh what did I think of that one

Mexico's had California and Texas before, I think they ought to enjoy some novelty and take Michigan instead.

I still have the dvd drive that came in my first "my own" rather than the family's PC when I was 13. I don't use discs enough to upgrade but it saved my life when I had to reinstall windows 7 for reasons since it was the only way to get data onto the computer other than physically removing a hard drive that was recognised by the OS without drivers. DVDs are good. I like them a lot.

I watched The Office (UK) because I felt like it's a big enough thing that I should have seen it. Then I decided to watch The Office (US) because I wanted to compare and contrast the adaptation. I don't particularly enjoy either of them but it's something to have on in the background.
