Bleh with Barry

Random with a cynical twist of lime.

I’m Barry, and I’m an IMDB.com Addict

with 5 comments

So, recently, I have become enamored with the imdb.com website. Now, it’s not that the website is new to me because we all know that people go overboard when they come into contact with new things. However, this is not the case for me. I have known about imdb.com for at least a couple of years if not more, and in that time period, I have not been nearly as engrossed as I have become in the last little bit. Why you might ask is this even possible? Well, let me enlighten you how I’ve been drawn in.

 

1) Ease of access– Ever since I got my first smart phone in November, I have had the imdb website at my finger tips. This accessibility has allowed me to look up my every query right when they happen. Was Billy Bob Thorton married to Angelina Jolie (purely hypothetical question…I know that they were…down to some of the creepier details)? I can find out at the touch of an app button.

2) Being in Grad. School– Now, I know that this one might seem a little counter-intuitive, but I have looked up more things as a result of working on papers and things simply because of my writing process ( I have to have something on in the  background to be able to work). Sometimes while I’m watching/ working, actors and actresses will suddenly connect up in my mind in some weird way, and I must find out things about them.

3) The Game of Connections– One night when I was a little bored, I developed a game on the website. Usually, it started by looking up an actor or actress and then finding a movie they were in. Then, I went to the movie and looked for other actors and actresses that I recognized. Then, I clicked on them and found a movie and repeated the other step. I would do this until I couldn’t find someone or some movie that I knew (this was without repeating movies or stars…). Honestly, this game is kind of addictive….you should try it and see.

 

So, yeah, I have become an addict of imdb. However, it keeps me involved in the movie world, and I get to have some fun doing it. Plus, I’m willing to bet I know some facts about celebs / movies that would boggle your mind. 🙂

      • I just found out how to make ringtones, I feel very disconnected with the outside world & consumed into my smartphone world. I’m glad to know there is someone else who understands the addiction haha (:

      • I can’t say that I feel quite that consumed by my smart phone. It’s really just a tool that I use to go about my busy daily life.
