In praise of ambient cinema?

Something sort of weird that I’ve gotten into the habit of doing in my bedroom as of late: putting a movie on with no intention of actually paying attention to it and then proceeding to do various other things that seem to need doing—like updating this blog, for example. In the past I’ve written about how we ought to regard works of art as being important elements of our contemporary environment—no less significant than buildings or means of transportation or clothes or food—but even I have to admit that this ambient cinema thing is slightly ridiculous. Even so, it’s kind of nice.

    I can’t handle ambient anything. When music’s playing I don’t get any work done because I can only listen to the music. There ought to be an episode of “Nova” about this.
