ex machina

netflix changed my life!

i know, i know. i arriving more than fashionably late to the netflix party. i never really thought it would be the thing for me, since i don't even have a dvd player aside the from ibook. but despite my initial misgivings, it's fascinating to see how it has subtly but quickly filled a need kris and i almost didn't know we had.

typically, kris and i will hear about a movie, try and remember it, promptly forget about it and then wander aimlessly around the local video store trying to remember all the good movies we forgot about. inevitably we end up renting complete shite, because of our horrid memories and the whims of inventory management at the store.

but now, when we read a review or hear about a movie, we open up the laptop, which is always nearby thanks to the wonders of wireless, go to netflix, order the movie and then forget about it until it shows up in our mail slot.

you won't get it until you do it.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
