Netflix: A History

Want to take a really enjoyable trip down memory lane? If you have Netflix, go into your account and click on "Rental Activity," and you can see every movie you've ever taken out.

Mine goes back to late 2003, and I remembered where I lived and what I was doing at various times that I saw specific movies. For instance, I didn't watch anything for two months after my wedding/honeymoon, ditto for after Noah was born.

Incidentally, I apparently watched "They Saved Hitler's Brain" at some point between Jan. 6 and Jan. 18, 2006. And I remember watching "Gonzo," the Johnny Depp-narrated Hunter S. Thompson documentary, on a flight to Vegas, albeit not having nearly as much fun arriving in Vegas as Hunter did.

Of course, I must admit there are a few things on here that I had to click on to remind me exactly what they were. Try it yourself here.
