Stupid Little Things
Some people like to watch their car odometers turn over numbers with lots of zeros or get to repeated numbers or read the same as the date. I figure these are variations on a theme of obsessive compulsion. I finally caught myself in one of these stupid little things. It involves, dare I say "of course," iTunes. When I listen to the entire library I am quite content to let its shuffly little mind work its magic and not pay much attention. But when I open a playlist of, oh, say, Carbon Leaf, I see that I've played a chunk of songs five times, a few other four times and the rmainder three times. So what must I do, start playing the songs I haven't listened to as much to bring the play count up to the same number for all the songs.
Jeez! Kill me now.
In happier news, I rented and watched "The Incredibles." What a great movie. Again: not good - great. Pixar goes from strength to strength. This ranks up with the "Toy Story" movies. I liked "Finding Nemo" but this blows 'Nemo' and its pretenders (cough)shark tale(cough) right out of the water. Holly Hunter's voice work is note perfect I hasten to add since I've had a crush on her going back to "Raising Arizona." That off-center smile! So adorable!
But my affection for the movie is not borne on the horns of Hunter-lust. The story is brilliant and the heroicism is spread amongst the Incredible Family. Nicely done. The DVD addition of "Jack Jack Attack" is a hoot too, ha! (I added the "ha" to make the end of that sentence a palindrome.)
