  1. Their face is their money maker. They don't want inferior products representing them. Did MJ Fox approve the cover of the ultimate trilogy blu-ray set? What. The. Fuck.
  2. I'm buying less new albums in all genres, but I still spend a lot of time curating my collection.
  3. The Borg emitted chronimetric particles to open the original temporal vortex. The Enterprise crew repeated that to get home.
  4. George Segal played Jack Gallo on NBC's Just Shoot Me! Jessica Walter played his ex-wife Eve Gallo. They died days apart.
  5. DVDs are easier to copy than blu-ray and take up far less server space.
  6. I've got $1200 in it so far, and the rest is parts from 2005 to 2008.
  7. I am building my first new desktop since 2008. The mobo can accommodate 128 gigs (4x32). This computer will start with half that.
  8. The movie's Thuggee are made more evil by kidnapping only the children from the village instead of the adults. Granted the village adults all look like grandparents, who are useless doing hard labor.
  9. I have the first three on the DVD set. I'm content.
  10. But Pittsburgh is in a state with a scared governor who will only permit a small percentage of indoor seating, something like 15%. So unless they want to move this to an outside venue where we can toss a beach ball, I'm okay to have my refund. Besides, Pittsburgh makes me drunk and then it rains.
  11. For the last eleven years, I have been storing all my CD rips as both FLAC and mp3. I keep them in the same folder for convenience and so if I need to change one album, I can change the other. This is a pain in the butt and a waste of space. Presently I listen to most music by streaming from Plex, so the default playback method is track 1 flac, track 1 mp3, track 2 flac, etc. Pain in the butt. So now I am deleting all mp3 if I already have it in flac. I will only keep mp3 if a) that's how I, um, acquired it, or 2) I need to re-rip the CD.
  12. "Dies irae" (Ecclesiastical Latin: [ˈdi.es ˈi.re]; "the Day of Wrath") is a Latin sequence attributed to either Thomas of Celano of the Franciscans (1200–c.1265)[1] or to Latino Malabranca Orsini (d. 1294), lector at the Dominican studium at Santa Sabina, the forerunner of the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Angelicum in Rome.[2] The sequence dates from at least the thirteenth century, though it is possible that it is much older, with some sources ascribing its origin to St. Gregory the Great (d. 604), Bernard of Clairvaux (1090–1153), or Bonaventure (1221–1274).[1]
  13. Wow, this is true. We didn't learn about this in history class. Mass deportation was the first plan. The Nazis were going to transport a million people a year using the British merchant fleet, after they spent years convincing Jews to leave freely. But because Britain refused to cooperate and, um, lose to Germany, the Final Solution was implemented. Interesting that the article says Hitler told Himmler to figure out how to deal with them, and Himmler passed the buck to someone named Heydrich, who again they glossed over in history class.
