Prime Viewing

For $79.00 a year, I am a member of Amazon Prime.  And I'll tell you, it's worth it.  I get free or two day shipping on most of my orders, and I get to watch unlimited streaming movies.  As many as I want. 

I have the app on my iPad, and I can also watch videos through the internet setup on the TV.  It's pretty freakin' cool.  In the last month, while we were sitting around waiting on others to do their jobs so we could do ours, eating dinner, or just lounging around, Ed and I watched the following films (the blurbs are all from

Affliction:  A deeply troubled small town cop investigates a suspicious hunting death while events occur that cause him to mentally disintergrate.  (Nick Nolte, Sissy Spacek, James Coburn, Willen Dafoe)
