Man Daily Blogs about a Movie about Woman Who Daily Blogged the Recipes of Julia Child

In 2002, blogger Julie Powell decided to spend a year cooking all 524 recipes in Julia Child's cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking. She blogged about her experience daily. The blog led to a book. Then, in 2009, this story was turned into a movie called Julie & Julia.

Lawrence Dai is taking this process a step further. He's going to watch this movie every day for a year:

For the moment, I will not tackle the existential query, "Why, Lawrence? Why Julie & Julia? Why now?" Instead, I shall stick to explicating the rules of engagement.

Starting today, Tuesday, November the 30th, 2010, I will watch the comedy-drama Julie & Julia every day for a exactly one year--from the opening title sequence until the very last credits roll.

The film clocks in at a humbling 2 hours, 2 minutes and 33 seconds, which means if I am successful in my endeavor, I will have watched 745.5125 hours of Julie & Julia, or rather, a little over 31 days of nothing but this movie.

Did any of you actually read the blog before posting? It is actually quite amusing. Certainly not a worse waste of time than a lot of other entertainment blogs out there.
