Kinda like an over-rented VHS tape but with digitization.
SD sucks once you get used to HD doesn't it?

Yup!

I thought I had the fastest DSL available from AT&T but that wasn't the case. I upgraded to 6Mbps yesterday and I am waiting for the bastards to throw the switch!

Just saw "Human Centipede". It was better than it should be. Excellent villain.

That was a really entertaining film. I watched it a second time just to let my wife hear all the accents and idioms.

Is that Lawrence of Arabia in your avatar? I think that is the bike he died on if so.

Crossroads: My kids had only ever watched the guitar duel on youtube and never understood the final result.

Today they watched it from the start and only then did they figure out that Martone (Ralph Macchio) played classical (Caprice No. 5 by Nicolo Paganini) in the final duel. A symphony on an electric guitar! The film opens with Martone playing Bach on a classical guitar ending with a blues flourish. His teacher at Julliard tells him he cannot serve two masters.

...very cool.

Bad Company: I enjoyed Anthony Hopkins and Chris Rock in this one. Lighthearted spy drivel but a good movie to watch. (4*'s just)

We also watched Unthinkable (Samuel L Jackson). Not bad. A solid 3*'s.

Yup, that's TE Lawrence. Probably not the bike he died on. He totaled seven of them before meeting his demise.

The miracle is that he survived as long as he did.

A brilliant British nutter in the best classical tradition.
