DVDs [Sep. 4th, 2001|01:14 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Been watching more DVDs lately ... fun stuff. I can work on my laptop on my futon and still watch.

Cleaning my room I found some DVDs that people had sent me when I was in Oregon and had forgot to enter in my DVD list.... thanks to darksoul for Cast Away, naygoo for Traffic, and graphxgrrl for Rising Sun (which I watched the other night... appreciated it a lot than I did 5 years ago when I saw it last).

Unfortunately I have two copies of Traffic now, since I bought one from my brother when I was down in Oregon... he had got it from Columbia House or something as a mandatory purchase so I just bought it from him instead. Anyway want a copy? :-)

Been reading the dvds community and updating my Amazon wishlist. I haven't bought DVDs in a long time... been spending money on other things I probably don't need (guitar, CoolEdit 2000, etc...)

Tired. Nap time after movie? Probably not..... I need to force myself to stay awake.

A plug would've been a link.

Really my wishlist is just for me ... so I can remember what good stuff I haven't got next time I feel like blowing money on a bunch of DVDs.

May I recommend Requiem for a Dream?

This movie is dark, and, well, amazing. It is directed by Darren Aronofsky, the same guy as Pi. It shares some elements with that movie, but is not as low-budget and Aronofsky does things with direction that were not even attempted in Pi. Just see it for yourself I guess ;)

If you're buying or renting, make sure to get the Director's Cut. The other version, which Blockbuster rents out, is called Edited Edition (I believe.) You don't miss much, but I don't think art should be cut up.

I just got laid off from my job. I'm a fucking loser. Drug movies are good for losers. Unfortunately fucking losers can't afford to buy DVD's for a while. Maybe, i can learn some tips to make money from that movie.

Brad, i dont think i've ever told you this but, you are my DVD god. You ever look into DIVX (the free kind not the stupid ciruit city kind). I've gotten about 25 movies downloaded off BearShare.
