I wish I'd said it first:
"The world is a stage but the play is badly cast"
"In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away."
"Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid."
"Life is a great, big canvas and you should throw all the paint you can on it."

My NetFlix Manifesto
Dear Netflix, this is my Manifesto: I do not think you understand me. Why should you? You don’t really listen when I tell you what I want. I am just one of your many customers. One that will be fleeing from you. One that is tired of screaming about what I really want. I’m laying it all out here. I’m tired of emailing you. You don’t read my emails so why do I keep trying? I joined NetFlix when you offered a great service. You allowed me to pick a film, or even multiple films, from your library and have them mailed to my house so I could watch them at my leisure. All I had to do was put them in the nifty, red envelope and drop them back in the mailbox. It worked for me. Then the internet became faster and more compliant with my needs. You guys were awesome. You offered a really fantastic dividend, I could hook up with NetFlix, online through my Tivo or PlayStationIII and get instant movies sent, via the web, right to my 47” Sony Bravia TV. Woo-hoo! Then, you upped the price. OK. I could understand this. Things cost more and that gets passed down to me. I wasn’t really upset by the price hike. Let me tell you what really pissed me off. Do you care?
