A little bit of entertainment...

For my birthday (which officially begins in 1 hour -- yay!), I decided to get myself a subscription to Netflix. I'd been carrying around a "to watch" list of films on my phone for quite awhile, and figured it was time to jump in. The first movies I added to my queue were: Spellbound, Nowhere in Africa, Kinsey, and Maria Full of Grace.

I also really really want to see Born Into Brothels and Nina's Tragedies, but they apparently haven't been released yet on DVD.

In other news, I'm finally jumping on the Podcasting bandwagon. Now that I'm spending about an hour a day commuting to/from work, I might as well use the time to catch up on "current events". I started by downloading the iPodder client, though I have to say I'm more impressed with the concept than the actual software. The iTunes integration is messy, and a bunch of the downloads seem to randomly stall with no way to restart or resume.

Anyone out there have any suggestions on better podcast download/mgmt software (at least until Apple builds it all into iTunes natively)? What podcasts do you listen to?
