Miro's like a bookshop

I love books. I rarely read them, but I like to look at them and think about reading them. Eventually I trained myself to stop buying books, knowing that I'd not get around to reading them.

I'm now going through the same thing with video. Every now and then I'll find out about some show that seems interesting, so I'll subscribe to it in Miro. Then I sit down and watch it, right? Hmm, not so much.

I do actually watch some of the shows I download, but the volume of unwatched video is growing. So, if I'm ever stuck on a desert island - with, um... a power source - I'll be able to kick back and:

- Hear inspiring TED Talks.
- Watch episodes of Hollowmen and other stuff from the ABC.
- Learn about CSS and the GIMP.
- Reflect on why Break A Leg never made it to TV.
- Think about becoming a sex-ed teacher who plays an episode of The Midwest Teen Sex Show in each class.
- Learn how to cook on a budget, describe wine, or stay Alive In Baghdad.

But since I'm not likely to get stranded on a desert island, I'll just continue to subscribe to new stuff. And maybe watch something, occasionally...
