I’m tired of opening a new tab for Netflix, waiting for it to load, then typing in whatever I’m searching for.
And I’m likely to forget what I was looking for in such an abnormal span of time (relative to my attention-spa… oooh, shiny!).
So I wrote a FireFox bookmarklet to easily do a search for me.
Now, open a new tab, enter your keyword, followed by your search words, like:
nf downton abbey
and you’ll get your results!
The code will accept single-quotes, but searches for titles by default, and will probably break if you want to start throwing crap in there.
If you don’t pass in any search-terms, it defaults to the Netflix home-page.
It’s simple, but if you have an idea for more functionality, let me know in the comments.
I’ve liked Apocalypse now since I caught bits of it on broadcast TV sometime in the 1980s?
I finally saw it entire on a date (!!!) during college. You know: on VHS cassette.
Years later, I fiddled with the idea of doing it live on stage, solo, with toys as props. Not GI Joes and Barbies and guns, no — but with stuffed animals, etc. Maybe cars and boats. But fluffy cute things saying the dialogue, etc. With potted plants, humidifiers running and the heat turned up. Probably just as well it never went to fruition.
The DVD Journal review of Apocalypse Now Redux (2002)
The web floats several variations on scripts — early drafts, working copy, transcripts, redux, etc.
The 1969 draft surfaced in early 2011. Cannot find it online.

24. Whenever “Smokey” aired on network TV, Gleason’s “sumbitch” would be re-dubbed with the novelty phrase “scum bum.” That became such a popular epithet among kids that, in 2007, Hot Wheels issued a Bandit-esque Pontiac with the phrase “Scum Bum” printed on the rear.
