Soderbergh’s yearly list of things watched, read and otherwise consumed

FROM: The Division of Human Engineering

Greetings and Happy New Year 765ivers!

Once again we find ourselves asked/forced to publish Mr/Dr Soderbergh’s yearly list of “media” consumption, and all we can say is our fearful leader sure seems to spend a lot of time not working (BELOW DECK, anyone?).

In a desperate attempt to leaven the slog of scanning his list, we here in the Dept. of Impact Attenuation dug up some previously unpublished videos made for the iPic theater chain last summer, since spy stories are always hot and we know your first reaction after watching will be WHAT I REALLY NEED NOW IS ONE OF THOSE EXT 765 T-SHIRTS. Frankly, we’ll do anything to keep the internet on for another week/month/year.

Also—and this could mean absolutely nothing—but Mr/Dr S has created a small insert stage at one of our Moline, Illinois fulfillment centers, complete with a wraparound green screen and a variety of props. When you combine this with his incessant claims of how photogenic his cats are, well…stay tuned.

Lastly, we know you have a choice of internet retailers and content providers, and we want to thank you for flying with Extension 765. Feel free to keep your seats reclined, tray tables out, and electronic devices humming, cuz this baby is never touching down!
