Dear Lusty for July
1. The whole bored question has been addressed a few times
2. As has the book question
3. As has the movie question
(And if you search the archives you'll find even more...so exciting).
But...I'm not going to leave you with a "search the archives" answer. I'll go ahead and toss in my two cents (though you may feel free to consider their worth to be less than that if you wish), since most of those archived answers are before my time.
1. Read the archives of the 100 Hour Board (hehe), read a book, watch a movie, get a job, go for a run, mousercise
, bug a younger sibling, learn to cook something, bug an older sibling, get a Super Nintendo and the Dr. Mario game...you will never be bored again, watch the highlight DVD from BYU's last football season, learn to play the piano, jump on a trampoline, go lick the neighbor's dog, try to think of why Paris Hilton is famous and then let me know, read the Sports Guy's blog
on ESPN.com, break all the dishes in the house (your parents'll give you something to do for at least a week), do a scientific study of weight gain occurring due to eating a box of twinkies every day for four weeks, do a scientific study of weight loss occurring due to eating nothing but chicken broth and carrot juice for four weeks, go the mall and ask every teenager you see walking around wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt who Che was (look near Hot Topic if you're having trouble finding anyone), start a blog, try to read every blog that exists, count the number of fibers in your carpet, send the Board Writers cheesecakes, perform an anthropological study of Elvish Sleep Trolls, and, when really, really bored, watch VH1.
2. The Crying of Lot 49, Song of Solomon, Catch 22 , The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Eyre Affair, Heir to the Empire, Understanding Comics (if everyone would read this book I would never have to explain how and/or why I study comic books), Ender's Game, Heir to the Empire, Huckleberry Finn, Pride and Prejudice, Runaways vol. 1, Bone, Oliver Twist, Good Omens, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Neverwhere.
3. I've looked over my DVD collection, and I'm going to recommend movies I like, but that there's a fair chance you have never seen (thus, for example, The Lord of the Rings trilogy will not be appearing on this list, even though it is recommendable, because there is a high probability you have already seen it). In no particular order: It Happened One Night, Hero, Metropolis, The Hudsucker Proxy, Mr. Smith Goes to Washigton, The Prestige, M, House of Flying Daggers, Arsenic and Old Lace, Serenity, Good Night and Good Luck, The Magnificent Seven, Thirty-Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, The Quiet Man, Harvey, North by Northwest, Duck Soup, anything by Buster Keaton (Chaplin gets much deserved fame from the silent era, but Keaton is the man), Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
3b. If you're looking for TV series (this can pass a lot
of time): The West Wing, 24, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond, Arrested Development, Looney Tunes, Northern Exposure, Scrubs, Smallville, Veronica Mars, LOST, The Cosby Show, Malcolm in the Middle, and The Office are all mightily entertaining in my book.
