       Ah yes, Blu-Ray disks they are greatness aren't they? With their needlessly large stoarge space that would make an 80gb iPod look like a mandatory item for a ten minute car drive, and it's barely noticable increase in sound and video quality over DVD. It's really nothing more than a company exploiting the natural human enstinct to always want something better and get greedy. Hell, it could almost be a full economic ploy by the government to make people re-buy their favorite movies once again on Blu-Ray. "Hey guys, I bought Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II on Blu-Ray harharhaff.~", it's stupid as hell really but thankfully companies were actually nice and have backwards compatibility for DVDs on Blu-Ray players, but doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose in the first place sometimes? "Hey Bill, let's go shove out six hundred Washingtons on a Blu-Ray player so we can play our massive collection of DVDs on it."

   Another reason I'm not exactly fond of the Blu-Ray movement is that compared to the DVD over VHS movement, it's downright pathetic. The advantages over VHS with DVD was nearly limitless, DVDs had much better storage, sound quality, picture, saved more shelf space, and unlike VHS it wouldn't degrade in quality extremely slightly every time you played it and instead was always in perfect condition as long as the owner wasn't a stupid pile of organs. It was a big upgrade, and it helped alot for media fans with room for a ton of special features and a great viewing experience. Now let's compare that to the Blu-Ray movement, we're barely getting anything out of it. The only real thing we're gaining is for us to have two disks for that Simpsons season collection, instead of four or only one whichever....my point is it's just like those jackasses who needed that 80gb iPod that I mentioned above instead of that more cost effective 2 or 4gb mp3 player. It's nothing, but bait for the stupid public to want to make an unneeded jump and dump their paychecks into Big Brother's pocket. Do we seriously need 200gb blank disks?



Hello, entire catalog of Metallica's work, live performances, un-released tracks, and whatever illegal crap I can shove into you.~

   That's not even everything that pisses me off about Blu-Ray and probably it's dumbass supporters as well. Much so like how DVD helped the PS2 sell more systems, Blu-Ray helps the PS3 sell more systems. I can't stand that to be honest, so all those Blu-Ray praising asshats can go ahead and attempt to burn their entire catalog of Dreamcast wares onto one disk and shove their one-eyed deathworm of Southern Sri Lanka down it's hole, I'm done with this topic.

Exactly my thoughts about Blu-Ray.

DVD was an awesome move, but Blu-Ray's so pathetic it's not even fun anymore.

yeah. He also has the distinction of turning his act around most for me.

Alice in Chains opened for Velvet Revolver when I saw them. First off, let the absurdity of that statement set in.

Anyway, so I saw VR since I went to see AiC, and my friend is a huge VR fan. They were pretty bad, and Scott just blew the whole time, he was in the wrong pitch, screwed up stuff, he was awful.

When I saw STP he was simply awesome.

A grunge band opening for a group of former GnR members? Blasphemy.
