I’ve been trying to

I’ve been trying to get out of the habit of using this space to just tell you about the products I’ve bought. That’s pretty mindless. But I can’t help telling everyone that on Saturday I finally got a DVD player. I didn’t buy a Sony Playstation 2 (although I could have) simply because I still haven’t finished many of my original Playstation games, and besides, I wanted a full featured DVD player with a proper remote and support for my (still hypothetical) home theatre system. If you didn’t already know, I’ve been stockpiling DVDs since the summer, so I don’t have to buy any discs. I watched “Toy Story 2” with the commentary on yesterday, and I rented “Three Kings” (which I never saw in the theatre due to a George Clooney allergy, now successfully treated by “The Perfect Storm” and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”) which Brooke and I will watch tonight. Still haven’t been to a movie in the theatre for almost a month. “Traffic” and “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (and to a lesser extent “State and Main”) are films I want to see as soon as possible. The DVD player I bought, by the way, is the Sony DVP-S360, which I’d recommend highly. A few bucks more than a Toshiba or Pioneer, but well worth it.
