I’m aware of the mis-quote of the ol’ ancient mariner, but i figured, more people probably know the expression in its modern form.
I guess you could say i’ve got SEA on the brain! Yesterday, we went out to white rock and walked on the pier and ate overpriced but delicious fish and chips. mmm. We saw ocean people doing their ocean thing, and a dead fish on the rocks.
the ocean! there’s so much dead stuff in it. -shutter-
The situation described here, regarding netflix, i’m SURE is an experience many can relate too. About 8 years ago, well before netflix was available in canada, my parents had a “free” video-on-demand feature through their TV provider. it was MIND BLOWING! there was a selection of like 12 movies that would change every couple of weeks. Now, with netflix’s library of 12 kazillion options, a mere 12 movies seems almost laughable… BUT! When there were 12 options, it didn’t take long to choose one or two. When there are 12 kazillion options, it tends to take a tad bit more time. It’s truly terrifying.
Anyways! My vacation is over, time to go back to work!
This may be one of my favourite comics i’ve ever made. Just take your favourite movie, put yourself in the protagonist’s shoes, and ask yourself the question, “would I do what they did?” We all like to believe we would. would we? would you?
I guess we watch heroic movies because we’d like to be heroic. Maybe it’ll rub off on us.
