This is the first entry in the possibly one the silliest ideas for a "One-Note" type of blog: The dreaded "Netflix Retrieving Screen". In case you're not sure what I'm referring to, this is what occurs when combining slow internet and a Netflix subscription with Instant Streaming on a Nintendo Wii. I do not have cable TV so this is where the majority of my TV watching stems from (besides various DVDs and VHS tapes). While watching one of the many choices through this great function, a show can stall out since it is running on a Wireless Internet connection, thus the "Retrieving" screen shows up. We sometimes refer to these as "commercials". ha.

Anyway, the point is, this blog is a reaction to those minor annoyances and a story that I read about an art exhibit found here or here. Although the Google Street views are more voyeuristic in nature, it made me question what art really is, but that's an almost rhetorical question since there's no answer. Art can be ridiculous and a game just like everything else. There's the good, bad, popular, unpopular and of course with friends in higher places (the most irritating of all). haha. But of course, there's its great freedom of self-expression, lack of parameters and ultimately open-mindedness.

In conclusion, this blog is mostly just screenshots taken by either my crappy digital camera or camera on my "Free" LG Shine cell phone. Yippee. Oh yeah, and probably the occasional commentary. Enjoy!
