I've never really had friends who just sat around and drank beer and watched movies. Not that it doesn't happen, and not that I don't do it, but ... it's an empty entertainment. I'm lucky that I've always known people whose idea of relaxing was working ... hard ... to make things happen. When you meet those people, grab ahold of them, keep them close, and let them make your life bigger. You throw your hopes into the air and, if you spend your time with the right people -- they reach out and catch your dreams, add to them, and they're real before they hit the ground ... more real than you'd ever imagined.
The most heartbreaking Macbeth which you may or may not ever see.

I only know people like that from a distance. They are amazing to watch, and very inspiring, but I'm not considered accomplished enough to be in their circles. That's cool, though. I can do quite a lot on my own, when it comes down to it.
The amusing thing to me is that most of the people I know who do sit and watch movies--a whole lot of tv and movies, to the degree of being geek-librarian-sources about all this stuff--they do not interact passively with this content. They're actively involved in responding to it, in talking about it, in writing things about it, or making new content about it. They call it making transformative works. They think an extra day off work is great for them to get together with friends and figure out new programs that let them clip and transform visual content and music into new vids. Or make entirely new music/verses. Or to write things.
A lot of the folks I know can't even sit still reading stuff on the computer, they will be making things with their hands while so doing. They post here and on DW about what they're creating for the next big holiday get-together with whoever (sitting high atop the thing, if I was making West Wing in-jokes) during their next big trip or holiday.
Yep, the kind of folks who will create book titles for awesome pix of beautiful gals looking kickass!
I also know a lot of folks who are really tired all the time, too.
It's also very amusing to me that Pandora Internet radio just randomly popped up (on the classical feed no less) with an orchestral version of the theme music for Darth Vader. John Williams's work, I think?

Hmm... The play's in public domain, a Kickstarter might raise the funds for a production... are you thinking along those lines?
Funny that you should make this statement because every time I see a post from you, I think to myself, "Man, this guy is always busy/working/doing something awesome!". :)
i once heard someone say "if you want something done, give it to someone who's busy"
