Music. Loud music. CDs, not my digitally compromised iPod garbage. Real, full bodied CDs. Nigel Kennedy, Eminem, Beck, Astrud Gilberto, Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, Tom Waits. When I want to travel back in time, a time when life was less complicated, when kindness was more a practice than a metaphor, when seat belts were optional and the gasoline was leaded, I cue up some Pink Floyd and experience vicious flashbacks of my utterly preposterous youth.
I have just downloaded a few short feature films from iTunes that range anywhere from 14 to 40 minutes. They are located in the "Shorts" section (imagine that). Also TV episodes. This is a good way to pass the minutes. Recommended titles:
Our Time is Up (Hilarious)
Six Shooter (Disturbing. A must see)
South Park Episodes
