Nice title, right?
I was recently a guest at someone’s house and we decided to watch something from Netflix. I never thought about it before, but that can be a real window into a person’s mind. I mean, it’s all right there in front of you; their likes, dislikes, recommendations and viewing habits. And do you really think about that before you invite people in to watch something? is there anything embarrassing there?
I actually had a moment of panic as I sat there looking at someone else’s queue. My own is innocent. Ridiculously so. Because I’m a dork. Even my recommendations:
I honestly don’t know why Pumping Iron is there. It’s the weirdest recommendation I’ve gotten in a long time. O_o
Maybe cuz I watch documentaries?
All of that aside, this whole thing got me thinking. When I have company coming over, I clean; kitchen, living room, bathrooms, etc. I de-clutter. But it’s never occurred to me to clean up my Netflix queue or my computers and whatnot. I don’t hide books or video games, shove my Magic cards in a drawer.
What’s the old trope from movies and tv shows? The one where a person visiting someone else goes through their medicine cabinet? That’s kinda what it felt like for me to be in someone else’s Netflix queue – kinda creepy. I don’t know why.
What do you think? Ever looked through someone’s Netflix queue or medicine cabinet? Make you feel creeped out? What if they went through yours?
