At some point during this week (not sure when, the days and mornings are sort of starting to blend together), I ended up on Amazon browsing at CDs and DVDs. With so many of my friends and fam now making the jump to BluRay, I realized– maybe I ought to quit buying DVDs (for now) altogether.
Jen agreed that for those films where outstanding picture clarity and sound truly add to the experience, that’s a good idea (your special effects extraveganzas, etc.), but for certain other movies or TV (like The Mosquito Coast, for example, which I’ve got coming next week), it’s probably not vital. I decided I won’t be collecting any more seasons of Heroes until I’m rockin the BluRay, and ditto for BSG. There’s just not much point when you know that you’re not getting the best that the current tech has to offer, right?
One point I will not waver on, though, is this: I absolutely refuse to put one more goddamned dime in George frakkin Lucas’s oversized pockets. I’ve bought your son-of-a-bitchin trilogy 6 times now, Georgey-boy, and that will be quite enough. I don’t care if the BluRay edition comes with a coupon for a free, lifesize X-Wing fighter replica1, I am done.
Meanwhile, speaking of DVDs, I really need to find a reasonably priced storage medium for discs. Don’t like the clunky (and expensive) cases, so I’d like to get a book. But what sort of storage capacity do I really need? That’s the question.
Hey, since YOU went BluRay, which are your favorite movies so far? Have you caught yourself licking the screen at any point? That’s kinda gross, dude, but I understand.
- I DO care about that, and if that was the actual offer, I would be at the front of the line. [↩]
