Getting the most out of your DVR when you’re bored
Sometimes, when I’m bored and have nothing better to do than watch television, I like to use my DVR to see just how stupid I can make a celebrity look. I won’t say it’s a pastime or anything, but it does allow me to shuffle past the racks of magazines at my grocery store checkout, gaze at all the cover images, and grumble to myself; meh, she’s not all that.
In case you’re interested, here’s how it’s done.
- Pick a tv show or movie featuring a popular actor / actress.
- Pause the DVR
- Fast forward the DVR while on pause for a frame by frame affect.
- Stop on any frame when the person’s facial muscles have contorted in such a way that they now look like a complete idiot.
- Now leave the image frozen on the screen so everyone in the family can see your handiwork.
With practice, and a few beers under your belt, you’ll come to realize as I have that most celebrities aren’t especially beautiful, they just have more facial muscles and makeup than do the rest of us.
There is one exception however.
Some celebrities, no matter how hard you try, are pretty good looking even when they’re making stupid faces.
The only thing left to do in this case is continue to move through the frames until they pucker up, as if blowing you a kiss.
Pretty stupid, huh?
I know, but I did mention how I only do this when I’m bored.
