Blog Oklahoma Newsletter
I don’t know about you, but we have way too many movies queued up in our various watch lists.  That and we also suffer from a bad case of can’t-decide-itus.  There are just too many options to pick from.  This decision paralysis often causes me to default on YouTube watching random videos and Donna scrolling through Reddit on her phone.  Nothing wrong with that, but it’s not watching a movie is it.  
So, what’s the solution? We’re going to Roll for Movie.   
I got the idea while mindlessly scrolling on TikTok and finding Roll for Sandwich. He lets the roll of his dice make his lunch.  So, why not let chance pick our movie.
To simplify things for this newsletter, we’ll stick with a single standard six-sided die (D6). List out your services 1 through 6.   Example: 1. Amazon Prime, 2. Hulu, 3. Netflix, 4. Disney+, 5. HBO Max, 6. Paramount+.
Now let’s let the fates pick your movie. 
First roll for the service.  Next roll for the movie (skipping TV shows) in that service’s watch list.  Then watch that movie.
Was it a good movie? It doesn’t matter, you watch anyway. Fate as chosen.
More later. Time to roll for snacks.

If you’re looking for a more secure way to communicate that isn’t owned by a large corporation, checkout Signal or Telegram. Both are multi-platform, free, easy to use, and encrypted. I use Telegram daily, but I have both it and Signal installed. I just prefer Telegram’s features over Signal’s.
