Recently, I picked up a habit from a coworker. That being that I will keep my laptop open and serving as a second screen to my large monitor. On that second screen, I’ll run videos from MoviesAnywhere, Apple’s TV app, or Netflix.
Not all the time, mind you. Just when I have a task I’m doing that doesn’t require 100% of my attention. Most of the time, the videos I’m watching are something I’ve seen plenty of times so it pretty much just becomes audio accompaniment.
The other day, I was watching Kingsman: The Secret Service and I was at the scene. If you’ve seen the film, you know what I mean... The church scene. Yeah, now you know it.
DO NOT WATCH THIS IF YOU HAVENT SEEN THE FIRST KINGSMAN FILM!
Anyway, at the end of that segment, I feel a tapping on my elbow. I take off my headphones and turn to see a different coworker standing there with wide eyes.
“What. Was. That??” He asked.
“How long have you been standing there?” I countered.
“Since the beginning of the church bit.” He replied.
I snickered a bit. “Did you like it?”
“Holy shit! That was amazing!”
“It was Kingsman.”
I think I made a fan. It’s a movie worthy of more notice.
