Similar to Amazon and Google’s Orwellian technology for matching advertisements and products to shit you check out on the web, Netflix makes an attempt to recommend movies to you by analyzing your movie choices and ratings. So Netflix? Just because I like one Nicholas Cage movie (Wild at Heart) that does NOT mean I want to rent every Jerry Bruckheimer film under the sky.
In hopes to avoid confusion like this in the future, I have joined the Netflix Friends program. Here you can recommend movies and check out each other’s queues and ratings. Click on the link below to be my Netflix Friend. So, we can like, trash talk movies. If you’re into the whole Netflix thing.

Dont judge me too harshly. And that’s all I’m gonna say about that.
I see that we have 51% similarity. Wonder if that will change now that we’re N-friends.
