So, I received my 2nd shingles vaccination yesterday. My shoulder was a little stiff. I also pulled the blankets tight around me while sleeping because I was cold. And this morning? I'm a bit tired, feeling like I should lay down and take a nap. I may do that after this gets posted.
I use my Garmin Fenix Pro 6 to track my sleep. This morning it said I had a fairly decent night's sleep. It evidently missed the part at 0105 when the dogs needed to go potty. We had a slow drizzle as I opened the door to let them out, but no sooner were they halfway across the veranda when the heavens opened. Hell. In 2 seconds it went from a light drizzle to a heavy downpour. They were not happy. While they love the drying off process, they detest getting rained on. And I had to dry them thoroughly, the last thing I wanted was we dog on the bed.
There's a movie in store for tonight, however we're going to a different theater. For some reason, AMC has started showing some of their movies with English subtitles. Now, I don't mind subtitles when I'm watching a foreign film, but they are totally unnecessary when I speak the language. AMC is doing this because of the tens of millions of deaf people who don't go to the movies because they can't hear well enough. Translation: they're trying to get more ticket buyers in their seats. What it will do is send people to the theaters where the open caption films aren't playing. Tell me, how many people want to be distracted by subtitles during the latest Spiderman movie. If you're not hearing impaired, do you really want to sit through this?
I follow Adam Kitzinger on Twitter, mostly because he understands that most conservatives are dumbasses, but also, now and then Adam is bit of a smartass, which is fine with me. Take yesterday when he corrected an angry Trumper by telling him "It's Rino, not Rhino, there's no H."
Kinzinger has zero fucks to give the MAGAts.ReplyDelete
While I don't agree with his politics, I do like the fact that he has no problem calling a turd a turd, and then flushing it down the toilet.Delete
I hate subtitles on films (or Youtube too) but I guess you have to think about other people's requirements too don't you. Heck in Geneva if I watched an English film it had subtitles in three languages! THAT used to drive me bonkers!ReplyDelete
I would probably skip the films in Geneva. Even in foreign films, I tend to find myself focusing on the subtitles rather than the film itself.Delete
I too liked and can live with Kinzinger or Zinger as I call him.ReplyDelete
I also saw a funny Chris Farley meme today of him bent over Merrick Garland that said, "For the love of God, arrest somebody already!" So true but made me laugh.
People are beginning to grow impatient with Garland, he needs to do something soon.Delete
Subtitles are too distracting when they're unneeded. I can't stop reading to concentrate on the film!ReplyDelete
I whole heartedly agree!Delete
I like subtitles because some actors in films mumble and I feel like I miss a lot. I also watch a lot of Brit TV, so accents can throw me off. :) My favorite independent movie theater has one night a week where they caption the films which seems like an excellent compromise.ReplyDelete
I will agree, the Brit accents are a bit difficult at times, but even with foreign films, I find I focus on reading the subtitles than watching the actors on the screen.Delete
