So I was looking in eBay at XBox games. Nothing that really grabbed me at a price that was enough below the retail to make it compelling. But at the bottom of the screen was one of those computerised guess things, where they have a wild stab in the dark about other items you might be interested in.
Its suggestions were:
- three different 4 DVD sets from Survivor (Thailand, Amazon, Pearl Islands). Now, obviously they are not to know that I have never watched Survivor in my life. But even not knowing that, why would looking at XBox games label me as some kind of Survivor-watcher? One fanatical enough to want to watch it over and over again on DVD? I mean, even if you liked it on TV, what’s the point of owning the DVD? Isn’t most of the excitement in the suspense of it all?
- a DVD called Seduction For Lovers. I’m guessing it’s a psuedo-educational porn DVD. Great. I think I’ll pass on that, thanks all the same.
- the DVD of Chicken Run. Outstanding. Quite a fun movie, and perhaps the best of the guesses, apart from the fact that I already own it.
