Re: To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

Although it’s not a series on Netflix, I was quite taken with In Bruges.

GDPR memes -- a few really cracked me up

Clickhole's is fairly epic.

Confession, for a while I wasn't wholly certain that GDPR wasn't some annoying millennial ahistorical nostalgia for the German Democratic Peoples' Republic.

I finished Hardy's Jude the Obscure. And now I'm ready to kill myself.

Foucault's Pendulum never quite got there for me, though it's been long enough ago that I might need to revisit it. Not long after reading it, I found the book Flicker by Theodore Roszak, and it was what I wanted Foucault's Pendulum to be.


Hmm, I’ll have to check that out.
