maybe I’m finally learning things I should have learned many years ago


Harry Dean Stanton in the Criterion booklet for Repo Man

According to my iCheckMovies profile (which is not entirely accurate because I only started using it in 2009 and was able to kind of go back to 2007 because of my LiveJournal, but everything I’ve seen before 2007 that I’ve “checked” has been from memory, so I’m sure I’m missing quite a bit of movies) I’ve seen 4643 movies. 

Now, I’ve been alive for 10,232 days. 

If you do that math, I’ve averaged 2.2 new-to-me movies a day for my entire life.

And this doesn’t even count rewatches (because there are A LOT of movies that I have seen 10+ times).


But also, I’ve read a bajillion books, spent countless hours listening to music and have watched the entirety of SEVERAL television shows. 

Double hmmm.
