Sweet! Titles!

I really dislike Blogger's settings. Everything is just a jumble to me. But I always wanted to give my posts titles...and now I can! Excellent.

Battlestar Galactica

Alright. I'm taking the BSG plunge.

High Definition

I have one major indulgence in my condo: my TV. We always had small TVs growing up and I knew when I got my own place I'd buy a big tv. The bigger the better. The biggest TV I could afford. So that's what I did. I bought a 61" HD-ready TV. I, of course, also had to get the HD add package from Comcast. It was only an extra $5 a month and it is so worth it.

HD is simply amazing. The quality is so good even Molly said, "whoa" when she saw a sporting event in HD. But here comes my dilemma.

I turned on the TV the other night and Road to Perdition was on ABC-HD. I've never seen Road to Perdition but I've always wanted to. I caught it right during the opening credits so it was perfect for me because I refuse to come into anything halfway in. I'll turn a movie off if I miss the first 10 minutes. So I see this movie and I say to myself, "This looks amazing in HD! Way better then any DVD I could rent." But then I had an argument with myself: Watch it in HD with commercials and possibly edited content or watch it at a later date in lower resolution DVD but without commercials and editing.

I opted for the DVD because I hate commercials but now I REALLY want HD-DVDs or Bluray. I'm not sure who will win that war but I wish all parties would sit down, decide on one, and split the royalties.

I also got this HD tuner for my computer. The packaged software isn't very good but once SnapStream supports QAM recording it will be SWEET.

Congratulations! You've stumbled into my website redesign. It's a mess, I know. I've been promissing myself that I would do this and I finally have. I thought the idea of windows might be cool. I wanted something clean and easy to navigate. I feel like this design accomplishes both of those. The problem I've found is that it doesn't LOOK cool. At least, not yet...

One of my pet peeves is silly American's using chopsticks unnecessarily. I can understand if you're in a Chinese restaurant and that is all that is in front of you. In that case, you should use them just so you don't look like a silly American. But if your descendants aren't from China and you're eating Chinese food at home or at work...what are you doing? Forks and spoons are far superior in the food to mouth ratio. Who are you kidding?

And don't get me started on the people I've seen use chopstick to eat their Chicken Teriyaki Lean Cuisines. GAH!
