A Plea to Twilight Time

Published by under Movies & TV

I wanted to make a simple plea to specialty label Twilight Time, who recently announced the rights to several Sony movies for eventual release on Bluray. No specific films were mentioned, but I really have an issue with their business plan. The Egyptian, a great 1950s film, was released at $40 on Bluray and limited […]

New Heineken Commercial

Published by under Movies & TV

For the last few weeks, I’ve seen Heineken’s “Entrance” commercial dozens of times and can’t seem to get enough of it and yet whenever I’m on the computer, I can never remember to look up the artist responsible for the extremely catchy music that accompanies it. To my amazement, I actually remembered today and it […]

Charter’s Free Internet Speed Upgrade

Published by under Movies & TV,Personal,Technology

Over the last six months, Charter has rolled out I believe two free internet speed upgrades and they haven’t been shy about saying it. At times, Charter’s ads for patting themselves on the back outnumber any other single company. I don’t think even Geiko can compete in the number of ads I’m seeing now. What […]

Published by under Gaming,Movies & TV,Personal

Here are the pictures I promised the other day: The young man is explaining some design ideas for a ride to a man was told is a new employee, when in fact he’s actually the company’s CEO.

RollerCoaster Tycoon on Undercover Boss

Published by under Gaming,Movies & TV,Personal

I watched a little bit of tonight’s new episode of the reality series Undercover Boss on CBS and was shocked by what I saw. One of the employees of an amusement park showed another employee some ideas he had for a ride and he didn’t pull out a sheet of paper and pen. He pulled […]

I don’t usually blog about movies, but I figured I’d share some quick opinions on the latest box office hit, Avatar. I’ve liked James Cameron’s past work, but I just couldn’t get behind Avatar. The promos never impressed me and after seeing the movie, this movie reminded me of what’s wrong with the video game […]

Retro DVDs

Published by under Movies & TV

Every once in a while I feel like watching something an older movie or tv show and last week I popped the first two DVDs of season one of MacGyver in my DVD player and was instantly taken back to the 80s, a time which looks makes things so much more simple than they are […]

I’m not a comic book reader… never really have been. I’ve only owned two comics in my life and that was when I was about seven years old. However, it’s hard for me not to notice the popularity of Comic-Con thanks to Twitter, just to start. A web without Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace doesn’t seem […]

Blu-Ray Question

Published by under Movies & TV,Technology

Alright, I finally opened my wallet and forked out a nice stack of cash for a Panasonic Plasma HDTV and Panasonic Blu-Ray player (along with a few movies), but I have a question about the BD-Live feature that many discs are coming with. I presume all BD-Live content is stored on remote servers and is […]
