MANAMANA! Do-doo-de-do-dooo

So, as SEP was here, I have spent this month's fun money already. And next month's. My budget is more buggered than coalman's 'orse and I now have only work and painting to look forward to.

Accordingly, I went out and spent money I shouldn't be spending (from the rainy day fund) and bought me a DVD player.

Oh. My. Dear. Sweet. God.

Why did I not get one of these marvellous machines sooner? (Well, I know why, because we were using Tina's shagged out old telly, which could barely cope with the video, but still...)

I spent another hundred quid on DVDs -- happy birthday to me -- and have spent the whole evening:

**swooning over the picture quality of the lovely Farscape DVDs ("...Different Destinations", how I love thee, even though thou art depressing as buggery);

**replaying bits of the season one West Wing eps so I can actually *get* all the jokes. Damn, those people speak fast and they are always moving about;

**shouting foul abuse at the commentary track on *cough* A Certain DVD Which Shall Remain Nameless Because I Don't Wish To Look Even More Of A Wanker Than I Already Do.
(however, may I just say: completing the kiss, MY ARSE)

and

**singing along to the Muppets.

Yes, I have the Best of the Muppets on DVD. Feel free to mock.

I merely remind you that I *have* the Best of the Muppets on DVD.

MANAMANA!

Best of the Muppets on DVD

oh. Oh, my. me want, me want.

I'm buying a new tv this weekend. I am, I am. Really. The DVD, well, we'll see. How much of a geek am I, that is the question.

"Different Destinations..." on DVD? Oh, *whimper*. But yes, that's the one episode I can't actually sit all the way through a second time. So frelling painful. "I'm in kind of a slump here."

First of all, I've got that song STUCK in my head, thankyouverymuch.

(however, may I just say: completing the kiss, MY ARSE)

Remember that this comes from a man who thinks the perfect relationship between a man and a woman is platonic. Makes you wonder what Mrs. CC was thinking, if anything.

I love the Muppets. Who dares mock the Muppets?

Oh my God. DVD quality is so much better for *everything*, but especially for Farscape. Isn't Moya gorgeous?

And, like, word on the kiss "completion". My reaction to that was "Are you guys NUTS?" Not to mention the whole "It was a gesture of respect" thing. Sure. I lean in for open-mouthed kisses to show my respect for co-workers all the time.

We went on a tax refund spree this week and bought a DVD player, too. There we were, innocently shopping for more baby stuff, and we said, "Well, let's just take a look at DVDs", and then somehow, an hour later, we owned one. Of course, when we got home and realized that our TV was so antiquated that it didn't even have standard AV jacks, we had to go back and buy a new TV. And Season 1 of Buffy. And Crouching Tiger, and The Matrix, and Labyrinth, but those three were all used, so that kind of counts as recycling, not actual purchasing.

So, is Farscape available on DVD here in the States, does anyone know? I hate being left out of all the Farscape discussion and fic, but we're way too cheap to get full cable

Exactly. That's almost purchasing for the good of the planet, that is *g*

Have you seen any of them? If not, I'm told you can rent or buy the best of season one at Blockbuster

http://www.blockbuster.com/bb/article/details/0,7413,ART-501,00.html?

The ep list is pretty much the highlights of season one IMHO. Do you have a multi-region hack for your DVD player? If not you could try Eastlant for the (non-legal, strictly speaking) solution

Farscape is wonderful, once you get past the puppets thing in your head. *g*

Welcome to the Dark Side of DVD ownership.

And everything looks better. Especially on the flat screen like you have. I am beginning to understand Token's insane lurve for them. But my TV cost a bundle and is huge and will last for 15 years, so I don't get one for a while. Then they will be cheaper.

HMmmm DVDs.
