Been given this for free on my phone for 6 months. Anyone got it? Just having a scout round and there looks to loads of documentaries, music especially. Do You Want To Win?, the Leeds doc is on there. Me and the lad are going to watch all of the official World Cup films from 66 onwards. I guess it’s like Netflix.
I have a hard time remembering what’s on Prime and what’s on Netflix. The beauty of having both is that instead of spending half an hour on a Saturday night flicking through Netflix before deciding there’s fuck all worth watching you can waste a whole hour browsing both before arriving at the same conclusion.
I’ll watch a few things that I’ve seen recommended over the last few years and then bin it after six months. Got one of those Google things to cast it on the TV. This’ll be the small bedroom TV, not the ten year old living room TV that I last turned on when Leeds were still in the third tier.
‘What do you do at night?’ ask people at work who find it difficult to comprehend that a grown man might have an alternative to lying on the settee binging on Love Island.
‘Read. Listen to music. Fuck about on the Internet. I have a fulfilling life’
Watched ‘Looking For Johnny’, the Johnny Thunders doc as it was on one of the recomend thingies. Decent watch if a bit punk, punk, drugs, drugs, dead etc. I bought his album So Alone years ago, convinced he died soon after releasing it, 79, but he went in 91.
Freedom Under Load.
One hour documentary about mountain porters in the Tatras, Slovakia. They’re in their 60s and 70s carrying enormous heavy loads on their backs up to remote huts. They love their freedom and would do nothing else, one slip or getting their centre of gravity wrong and they’re gone.
