I like the occasional foreign movie. They are usually delightfully different than American films. I don’t mind subtitles all that much.

I also like to have the occasional television show or movie on in the background during late afternoon and evening when I tend to do my least thought intensive computer work. I’m generally staring at my computer, with only an occasional glance left at the television. But, I follow the plot and it distracts my mind.

That all being the case I am realizing that foreign language movies do not make for good background movies. Yojimbo is on. I don’t understand Japanese. I’m working on some web design tasks staring at the computer. Thus I can’t read the subtitles.

Yet, I don’t change the channel. I wonder if there is something zen about that.
