Doing important work...

As I navigate the landscape of the next couple months I'm trying to make an effort to not watch things on TV or movie's that are useless.  Trying to avoid things like Jersey Shore (not that I was ever really watching it) and watch things more like Ken Burn's Congress or The Modernism of Julius Shulman.  After reading a lot about Tim Hetherington being killed while covering what's happening in Libya, I decided to finally watch Restrepo which had been sitting in my Netflix Instant Queue.  It's an amazing documentary about a platoon fighting in what was once called the most dangerous place on earth.  If you haven't seen it yet, it's time you watched it.  It really makes you think about how the things you think are important in your everyday life really don't compare to what other people are going through.
