Rx: Fun -- Entertainment with No Educational Value -- Plus a Healthy Dose of Moral Outrage
If you're looking for something fun and entertaining to download which has no educational value whatsoever, I highly recommend either of the following series of video shorts. (You can download them from iTunes or watch them online via the following links.)
Erik the Librarian (about an unusual librarian named Erik who becomes obsessed with a library patron, who finds him totally freaky, to say the least). For the slightly twisted mind.
The Retributioners (a mockumentary about a revenge-obsessed anti-heroine named Stephanie: language may offend). For the totally twisted mind. Quality varies from episode to episode. I highly recommend the show intro, episode 1 (revenge on ex-boyfriend), and episode 6 (revenge on person who stole taxi).
If you want to tap into my more serious side, you'll find it over at ParentCentral.ca and at Yahoo! Canada.
And if you want to feel healthy outrage about something in addition to things I've been blogging about recently over there, get mad about the fact that the Peterborough Regional Health Centre (which opened up last month) is actually considering substituting showers for the bathtubs which were supposed to be part of the brand new maternity ward. (I was out of town when this hit the papers last week, so my daughter just brought me up to speed. Can you believe it? Maybe I should let Stephanie of The Retributioners know about this!)
