Living by yourself affords some advantages. One of these is that you don’t have to concern yourself with anyone else’s preferences when you visit Blockbuster (other film rental companies are available). So, if you are feeling particularly anti-social you can get films which are violent and/or disturbing, and not have to worry that your housemates will speak in hushed and worried tones having analysed your choices or not very successfully mask their opinion that your choice of films is crap. You can stay up late into the night watching a massacre, men beating the shit out of one another and some claustrophobic mental abuse (thanks to Elephant, Ong-bak and Closet Land respectively), and no one need know you are being a bit odd.
It’s not all positives though. You do sometimes get smirked at by the people who work at Blockbuster. And living by yourself means you can’t steal anyone’s food.
