I can’t believe I did this. I broke two cardinal rules today. I can’t even believe I did this. This all started because my TV/DVD combo shit out in my room. I went to Best Buy today and was going to purchase a TV, I found a decent one for around $300. It’s a 24 inch Dynex. It was a DVD combo as well, I checked out and it rang up at $250 – what a steal! I get home, set the bitch up. I break out Nine, I was gonna watch it. I couldn’t find the DVD player, I bought the wrong model. Next move, take my X-Box 360 from the family room and use that as a DVD player, it’s been on the fritz lately and red ringed me to death. Back to best buy. I’m going to get a cheap DVD player.
Here’s where a broke my first cardinal rule: I bought a Blu Ray DVD player. I’ve been against Blu-Ray from the beginning. I like the way film looks. I’m a traditionalist. Hey, the Blu Ray player is WiFi and has Netflix, Pandora, You Tube and a slew of other nice features – and it was on sale $150. I then bought Sin City and Boogie Nights, I don’t own those on DVD and I refuse to start over – that is until I broke the second cardinal rule – I saw Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut.
I spent around $600 dollars today.
I wanted to buy 2001 on Blu Ray, but Kubrick would have rolled over in his grave.
I’m going to buy the Criterion Antichrist and A Single Man on Blu Ray. fml
UPDATE: Blu Ray players do not come with HDMI cables. Classy.
