Unsuccessful Spinflixing

So this was the feature presentation tonight for Spinflix Theater...

(Interview with the Vampire) But here I am bagging it and just watching the movie instead. :(

This movie has such a large range in the volume. So basically I either couldn't hear conversations or was jumping out of the saddle when something sudden would happen. I couldn't get the subtitles to work for some reason (I'm pretty certain we've watched Netflix with subtitles on before, but maybe it was only because it was a French movie). I remembered that Greg got a headphone extension of some sort, so I got that and tried to get it to work with the receiver. I'm just not good with cords and understanding what goes where. After trying many things, I just couldn't figure it out. Then I banged my head really hard on the shelf above the TV - arrgh!

So I got back on my bike, frustrated. And there basically wasn't anything to get out of the movie since I couldn't follow it. I didn't feel like staring at nothing, or perhaps finding something else to watch that didn't require following so closely. So, again, here I am just watching it. Boo for the failed workout.

But this is one of my favorite movies, and I haven't seen it in years. I forgot how much I enjoy the soundtrack too.
