Ooops

Well what can I say, this is the third mp3 player that has suffered at my hands this year, fortunately the damage is cosmetic and it still works fine. The thin plastic screen protector may just have saved me having to fork out for another one, alas it's not cost effective to repair.

Arrow

The Arrow was simply my favourite new show of the last US television season and perhaps one of the most surprising, I wasn't expecting too much but it's story telling, action and over all production were top notch.
Now I have the season 1 Blu-ray at a very good pre-order price from Amazon I've pretty much decided what will be taking up most of my TV watching time over the next week:)

Into Darkness Commentary

Ok after much juggling I'm finally getting to watch the commentary track for Star Trek Into Darkness on my plasma, once upon a time it was simply a matter of selecting the option on the Blu-ray menu now it's a case of finding a compatible device to play the itunes DRM video and stream it to the TV.
The future isn't always about convenience for the consumer.
It'll be interesting to see if I take away more of an appreciation for the movie, so far my opinion has been steadily falling and at this time I prefer the 2009 movie which has it's own share of issues and you know if studios continue to slap the consumer in the face with half arsed releases then I have to consider ceasing to buy movies. In many ways it's the extras that really set apart a retail release compared to a pirated release, if there is no content or quality difference then well do the math.

Star Trek Origins

Yes I know I already have these episodes on Blu-ray but look the box is so pretty and it was cheap and I've spent more or less so don't mind me while I sit back and enjoy the original Star Trek.
