Ok, how many of you know who these characters are to the right here?
I recently figured out a way to get Netflix hookup into Mexico and this was one of the series that is available to me now.
First of all, don't get all excited to the prospect of getting your
own Netflix hookup unless you know someone in the states that
will let you get a high speed DSL connection dedicated to setting up a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
I am sure that a lot of you have tried to hook up various services to your Internet like Netflix, Hulu , Pandora, at a myriad of other. The screen usually says that the service is not available in this area.
It can be done, but is rather involved.
The reason I had to set up the network is because I am doing a little consulting work for several people and needed a secure connection, where I could connect to their network.
One of the benefits is that my local connection in Patzcuaro provides me with a IP address which is actually stateside.
The only advantage that I can see at this point is being able to get unlimited movies downloaded for 10 bucks a month. I do have to admit that I have watched more movies in the last couple of months that I have in years.
The characters on the page are from an UK cartoon series called Wallace and Gromit. It is really a cute adult style cartoon, sort of like Southpark is, but on a much milder theme.
I only started watching Southpark after years of friends telling me how funny it was, I resisted watching until about a year ago and now I am hooked on the program. It is a politically incorrect show which pokes fun on and at everything.
Funny how it is that being a kid how funny cartoons were, I remember seeing them and cheering when they came on the screen at our local movie house The Haight Theater in the city. Then during school years the Flintstones were out and I like a lot of my friends were glued to the TV on Friday nights.
Then after those years, cartoons for some reason ceased to be funny, I am sure that they were but maybe false sophistication prevented me watching them. After all, watching cartoons would be considered juvenile, wouldn't it?
Then about two or three years ago I notice that they had a unusual appeal again. Watching some of the older ones brought back grand memories, watching the new ones, bring in awe of how adult and sophisticated the humor presently is.
Wallace and Gromit , Southpark and The Simpsons now catch my eye.....
Interesting in a humorous sort of way.....
