Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

So many ways to spend one’s money

Funny that. No, really, funny. Ten minutes before I saw Punch-Drunk Love, I was just wondering if I shouldn’t, maybe, try buying an illimited movie pass (because we have that here—it may be a French exclusivity, I don’t know). For 17 € per month, I would be able to see lots of movies, in original version and on a big screen, in a nice, modern theater that’s generally not too crowded. For 17 € per month, I could spend every afternoon watching a new movie, and launch a new sub-blog with daily movie reviews. For 17 € per month, I would have illimited content for this site, plus a daily motivation to get out of my bedroom. Bliss for a small price.

Funny, I said, that, right after I started considering that option, I watched a movie I didn’t like. However, I’m not sure which way I’m supposed to understand this sign: does it mean I should stop spending money over movies, or I should have a pass so that I’d never regret buying a ticket again. But I don’t believe in signs anyway, so why am I asking that?

But there are also a few drawbacks to consider. The fact that it’s 17 € a month, which means a new subscription I’ll have to pay each month, even if I’m not in a wealthy period (and, considering how the year has started, I’d better be careful, shouldn’t I?) The fact that the pass won’t be of any use without a subway pass, so I’ll be forced to buy one, briging the total to 77 €. And the fact that I already pay a subscription to Canal+ (a French private channel) and there’s no way I’m terminating that.

It won’t be an easy choice. I guess it’s going to depend on what happens in the following weeks, regarding my birthday, and regarding my work (or lack thereof).

Oh, but the UGC pass can also be offered. Maybe I’ll have to upload an ID picture here. Just in case. You never know.
