Late Night Decisions

This whole time change thing has got my internal clock messed up or something as I’m normally, at least these days, tired at this time of night and ready to go to sleep. Yes, its sad. I know.

You wouldn’t think one hour more or less would make that much of a difference, but apparently it does. Anyway, it gives me a chance to do a blog post and also watch some great (or not-so-great) TV shows or movies.

Right now, I’m choosing between ‘Disturbia’, ‘Open Water 2: Adrift’ or ‘Executive Decision’ and am leaning towards the first one, mostly because its an updated version of one of my favorite Hitchcock films: ‘Rear Window.’ Here’s the trailer, just in case you’re interested.


Or, there’s probably something already recorded on the Tivo I could watch. At the moment, the Tivo is filled with shows like the series finale of ‘The Wire’, episodes of ‘The Tudors’ and probably a couple ‘Reaper’ episodes too. Also, probably a few movies as well including ‘Torn Curtain’ (another great Hitchcock film) and ‘Last King of Scotland’ starring Forrest Whitaker as Idi Amin.

Oh, I almost forgot about all the stuff on the Apple TV that streams from my media iMac in the office and also has been downloaded fro the iTunes music/TV/movies store. On that device, I believe, are episodes of ‘Weeds’, ‘Baslisk’, ‘Babylon 5’ and movies like ‘Eastern Promises’, ‘Shoot ’em Up’ and ‘Live Free or Die Hard.’

So, more things to consider when trying to decide how to keep myself entertained while I can’t sleep. With all this media and entertainment basically at my fingertips 24/7, why am I worried about trying to sleep? Maybe I should just enjoy being awake and catch up on all my movie and TV viewing.

Choices, choices, choices. I guess its a good thing but really, I probably watch too much TV. Maybe, instead of sitting here and watching programs created by other people i should get back to creating some of my own?

I think that’s a good idea . . . right after this show’s over.
