Weekend Fun!

I've discovered that a Netflix account plus an Xbox equals good times!

Netflix has a feature that allows account holders to watch instant titles through their Xbox right on their TV. If you enjoy watching movies, let me tell you, this is so much fun.

And, I'm thinking that's probably why I put all other obligations aside this weekend, and spent the majority of my time viewing artsy French cinema.

One movie I particularly enjoyed was Paris Je T'aime. A bunch of short stories about love, all which were set in Paris. All very unique, and extremely interesting.

You can watch the trailer below!

So, what was your weekend like? Tell me, I would love to know. :)

I love NetFlix and their "on demand" feature is great. At first it annoyed me because you could only use it with IE, but I enjoy watching some of the less acclaimed movies and the premium cable shows that are available are great.

I don't have an XBox though, so I have to just watch on the computer.

And, I've never heard of that movie, but it has Natalie Portman, so it's worth checking out. ;-)

I visited grandpa in FL. I'll be blogging about it for days. :)

Jessica said...

Yay! Gary! Thanks! :)

It's such a cool concept! And yes, Ms. Portman is in the movie, but only for a bit. ;)

Hi India,
I was in Paris for a week in 2006! It was such a wonderful experience. I will be heading back that way for sure! :)

Aw, lol! :)

Watching movies all weekend sounds great! I'll have to look more closely at Netflix thing! Though I don't have xbox.

My Saturday was the 7th day of a 7-day stint at work in North Carolina. It was a particularly long 16 hour day. My Sunday was spent driving back home to Toledo, a 10 hour drive, so most of the day in the car. But I'm not complaining at all. I love my new job, and it was peaceful in the car. I listened to a lot of Pandora radio through my iPhone widget.

I used to have Netflix. I should get it again. My brother does the same thing that you do - able to watch it on his TV from ordering the shows online and he loves it!

I love netflix too!! I really like O demand too because it's so easy and free!

Jessica said...

Hi Ferd,
Netflix is fun to watch on the computer as well! :) I'm glad you love your new job! And you have an iPhone--I'm jealous!

Hi Aleta,
It's really a neat concept! :D

You are right about that! :)
