A couple of weeks ago my buddy Robert was telling me that I need to check out a show called Dexter while we were having lunch. So I spent a little time on Netflix finding that Dexter was there. I started watching. Then I kept on watching. This is a heck of a show. The premise is quite good. A guy who is a serial killer that kills other serial killers. And I kept on watching. I have devoured nearly 4 seasons of the show in a couple of weeks. Good thing I’m still able to get work done while I’m getting up to speed with it.
The beauty of finding a good show like this is the ability to mass watch it and catch up. That’s a real power of a service like Netflix. The smart people in the media viewing business would do wise to get all their wares on the streaming portion of Netflix. Another cool factor is that they have the ability to be seen on multiple devices and pick up where you left off. If I’m not in the studio working, I could be out waiting in line with my iPhone. It’s a cool future of media.
If there is one thing that is going on with Dexter it’s the amazing amount of subplots going on in the show. That’s one bonus to watching a bunch of a show all at once it’s much easier to follow story lines.
Speaking of subplots, a band called Subplot A came across my screen recently. They have a song called Everyman that has really fun verses. This is definitely an indie production. Despite the bedroom recording feel of it it’s got a really cool vibe in the verse. I would love to hear this band produced with a little more production behind it. That could be the real key to helping them blow up to a commercial success. Especially with ideas flowing here.
While listening to Everyman for a second time I started laughing at all the references listed in the song. There are some really brilliant names in there and well placed for rhyme.
Go get it and enjoy the humor.
