I thought I was smart by waiting for the HDMI equipped, supposedly Red Ring of Death free Xbox 360s when I got mine. It turns out that Microsoft improving their products is like dividing by zero: it'll just take longer to die and/or will do it in new and unusual ways.
This is also a cautionary tale about putting all your eggs in one basket, as the 'box was responsible for about 90% of the pretty pictures that my TV produces. Beyond videogames, of which (you may have noticed) I am a fan, it streamed video off my computer, played instant Netflix, had an HD DVD player, (damn I'm lame) and was my most reliable DVD player. (My fancy-shmancy Oppo is possessed by demons.)
Thank goodness for Roku, or I'd have to watch reality TV right now.... or worse.... think.
I'm addicted to using parentheses, (Ooooh, that's the stuff) I watch a lot of very strange and/or obscure movies, I love videogames, I make promotional videos for sporting goods, I have a totally sweet dog who is lazier than I am, and I will most likely never finish the Sci-Fi novel I'm writing.
