Hi, My Name Is 8thlight And I'm An Addict.

This is the part where you all say, "Hi, 8thlight!"

Any way. I often find myself spending hours at a time improving my recommendations on Amazon.com. I actually find enjoyment in it. I kind of just space out and start clicking like mad. For the most part I'm getting rid of artists and movies I don't like so I can get more things that I do. I don't know how lil wayne found his way into my recommendations, but he must be eliminated! lol I also rate any music & movies I've listened to watched so I can get better recommendations. Albums that I have heard that sucked from artists that I don't like get a not interested. Albums that suck from artist that I like just get a lower rating. I'm looking at you New Danger and Electric Circus!

I have already added Iron Man (Two-Disc Special Collectors' Edition) to my wishlist! :)

Do you update your recommendations to hopefully find new music & movies?

Am I alone in my addiction?

I think you're alone on this one ace..although I will say i have an addiction to lastfm. I constantly pick one artist, and try to become the user who plays them the most, just so i can see my little icon show up. that's pretty bad.

Yeah, I used to do that too. If there was a new artist that I loved I would try to get into that top spot for the artist. lol But, the recommendations tell me about albums that I may not have known.

i gotta admit, i may have the same problem...
i JUST discovered Amazon (i mean, i knew it was there, but i never had money before to buy anything), and i can see myself getting hooked on writing reviews and stuff... i read a lot, and watch a lotta movies, so i LOVE sharing my opinion... especially of stuff i like!
