Games or Movies

Hey all,

What do you all do when you get up bore ? Let say you are playing and you get bore so you started watching movies, or you are watching movies and you want to break boredom so you again back to game.

Some times i do the same. But most of the times neither i watch movies nor i play games, I listen to music because i am busy with some or other work so , i switch on songs on my home theater.

What's your story ?

When I get bored I go to the MBN choose a Subforum that has nothing to do with my intention and post something random expressing my boredom.

Unless a game has a gripping story (most don't) I normally watch a film/tv/webshow at the same time.
Ditto when working.

I mainly play games, but unfortunately (and I mean it), I am never bored.

I do Anakin's favorite recreational activity.
I put on my hat and wizard robe.

sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Usually I fill up my time with studies or some sort of programming. If I'm bored studying at home i go to the university and study and vice verse.

However, after being tired after active brain-use for a while, I usually watch some series on the computer or meet up with friends (depending on if I'm at home or in uni). It's fantastic that there is often something happening at uni!

Studies, sports, hobbies (like programming) etc. keep one from boredom indeed!

Programming can be surprisingly addicting.
Something very satisfying about making a nice reusable block of code especially :P

Ok, well, seriously, usually I end up doodling something on my guitar (that can last for hours!)... or composing... or analising other people's compositions (ie: listening to music)... or watching videoclips... or reading about latest sound equips... all in all, something to do with music.

That's why I nowadays often prefer functional programming languages!

And thank you for yours

Depends on the quality of the product, level of boredom, and the time available. Games take home the medal in terms of everyday 15-minute boredom-quenching sessions, but for those times when you're doing absolutely fuck all and have a spectacular desire to do absolutely fuck all, certain movies tend to stimulate my brain and provide thorough enjoyment and pleasure.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to watch a movie.
