my concern is sort of the opposite.
i’m going at a “burst” rate right now and at this rate i will run out of movies to watch pretty soon.
some people would slow down to delay this inevitability but i am going with the “it’s not the years in your life but life in your years” approach here.
my personality is to go straight to the top and then spend the rest of my life being depressed about having all the best times in my past. i never employed the “saving the best for last” approach.
i use the same approach when it comes to knowledge as well. i always go straight for the most horrific, most unthinkable truth. most people pace themselves such that they seem to learn something every day yet still make it all the way to old age and death without understanding anything they might not want to understand.
i guess i fundamentally never believed in the future since my sister died when i was a teenager. she died while working on her PHD and she married only a few months prior. she spent 20 years preparing for a life which simply never came. by the time i was her age a few years later i was doing steroids, hard drugs and alcohol not because i was depressed but simply out of belief that life happens in the present, not the future.
but as with all things i got tired of those after about 2 years and my life has been more or less empty since then.
i fully expect the same thing to happen with movies - i will probably be done with them before TV warranty runs out. but sadly not within return period because this time the TV is from Amazon, not Costco and Amazon doesn’t have such a generous return policy. i haven’t even checked what the return period is as i am not planning to return it.
i’m just going to keep watching movies until none are left to watch and then the TV will basically become a very expensive paperweight … but i don’t see any other options.
