  • Microsoft Xbox 1080p – Possibly

    Just recently, Microsoft went on record that their HD-DVD drive will also support 1080p. And according to their HD DVD Explained, “This new accessory will connect to the Xbox 360 console with a USB cable”. Did anyone at Microsoft bother to do the math on the amount of bandwith needed to transmit 1080p?: 1080i uncompressed: […]

  • Sopranos, March 12

    Wow, how many years has it been? Like 12? Well now a new generation can learn cuss words from my favorite Italian family (except for the Micelli’s from Who's the Boss? ).  New season starts next week. Thank goodness; with Project Runway ending I didn't know what I was going to do with myself.

  • Movies and Sitings

    For awhile I was writing about celebrity sitings around town, but it was getting stupid. Every week there was another one, and I just didn't care enough to write about it. But over the last week, I parked next to Donnie Darko heading into Ralphs for some late night shopping. It was odd because he […]

  • How many movies have you seen this year?

    This question was posed on Hacking Netflix because Becky just blogged how she has watched 200 already this year. My count so far was 96. In comparison, I only watch about 3 shows on TV a week totalling about 2.5 hrs on TiVo, and I have been to the theater about 3 times. That would […]
