Maybe Italy?

I read the Illustrated Classics version, which was of course highly condensed and thus not that bad about this, but even then it was kind of confusing (but lots of fun!). Like

I'm thinking about quitting Netflix, but there's still Stranger Things 2 within few weeks and potentially Black Mirror 4 later this autumn, so it may wait.

Anyway, listening to Electric Light Orchestra.

My dad was so done with Netflix once they started raising prices because we don't even find a need to use it much anymore. Neither he nor I watches movies all that often, and my mom tends to prefer Malayalam movies IIRC, which are much, much easier to find on YouTube than on Netflix.

John Lydon's autobiography. Channel-surfing trying to find something which deserves my attention. The sound of traffic on the bypass.

Honestly, I mostly just keep Netflix for the Marvel shows, which are about the only TV shows I consistently watch. I loved The Defenders! (only got through about 75% of Iron Fist, though--I just never cared about Danny)

I'm not much of a movie person, I'm too easily distracted. (I'm constantly on my phone or playing a game at the same time as watching a movie or TV show) But every once in awhile I get the itch to settle down with something, and as long as I don't have something specific in mind, Netflix is good for this. My go-to used to be Cutthroat Kitchen, but it's not on Netflix anymore, so I sometimes watch an episode or two of The Great British Bake Off instead. I'm also sloooowly working my way through the new MST3k series, which is fantastic.

Someday I'm gonna get caught back up with The Blacklist on Netflix, too. I always liked that show, but I fell behind and never got caught back up.

Looks like the left is finally adapting to the methods of internet reactionaries. They have probably lost the first mover advantage though.

Yesterday I've watched the fourth episode of “The Orville”. I must say, the show is getting better and better.

Regarding Alexandre Dumas, I once read The Three Musketeers (unabridged). I thought Satan from the bible was a more sympathetic character than the protagonist of that novel. Satan is about as faithless as d'Artagnan, but to me he comes across as less self-righteous. That is when I decided I would never read another book by Alexandre Dumas unless I was feeling too happy with how my life was going and needed to be brought back to earth by reminding myself that things like Alexandre Dumas' novels exist. That occasion hasn't arisen so far.

I don't see why protagonists have to be morally correct. Look at (Sean Connery) James Bond, for instance (If I watched any post-Moore Bond I completely forget which films those were). And I like villain protagonists too.

Also, a lot of the musketeers' awful behavior is a reflection of what Dumas thought musketeers behaved like.

Checking Reddit and another forum and watching . (The movie is in Tamil, but the main character is the guy who's initially wearing a yellow shirt. He speaks Malayalam, or a slightly Tamilized version of it).

Currently trudging through Hamlet, which I had never read or seen before. Reading Elizabethan English is hard.

Now I understand the old joke that this play is "just one famous saying after another".
