Her Life Is In Your Hands Dude
Oh by the way, like my Lebowski quote? One of my all time FAVORITE movies. Ever. But then again, my list of all time favorite movies ever is a bit long. Kinda.
I've taken on the task of ripping my movie collection and storing them on this new shiny piece of equipment.
Just in case you were wondering what us unemployed people living on boats do during the day while you sit idly by your computer catching up on Facebook and Twitter pretending to work.
Didn't think I knew what you were up to didja? I had an office job once. A long time ago. A very long long time ago.
So, yeah, the reason why this thing has MY life in ITS hands (and please don't ask me where its hands are, they're internal. Somewhere.) Is because I own approx 170 movies. At a ratio of approx 30 minutes to rip one movie, I'm talking like 85 hours (yeah, I did use the calculator for that small piece of mathematics calculation, I just did 5 miles on my bike - to return rented DVDs I ripped - so I guess the bike ride in theory could be added to the 85 hours of ripping activity. Yes, that would then make it more than 85 hours. Give or take.)
Where the heck am I going with this post?
If that little shiny piece of equipment were to get blanked out for some reason, I may want to commit suicide. Or jab a hammer through my eyeball. Not the ball ping kind, but the other one. The carpenter's hammer. Didn't think I knew the difference between the two of em right?
I was a mechanic for 5 years, remember?
I just hope that thing holds out. I don't want a hammer through my eyeball. If I did do that though, I'd use my right eye. Since my left one is my shooters eye. I learned that years ago when I was working in Summer camps teaching archery. Don't worry, I don't play with guns. I do however run with scissors.
Because that's just the way I roll baby!
p.s. 70 movies have been ripped up to date
p.p.s. just thought you wanted to know...
