I've been toying with the idea of letting go of some of my more insignificant dvd related pet peeves. Candidates are:

-the fact that Disney refuses to put dates on any of their dvds, so I always have to go to imdb.com to find out what year they came out. I think Disney figures if they don't put on the date the copyright won't expire. Posted Image

-the fact that 1.37:1 films are cropped to 1.33:1 for dvd. I know I'm only losing a fraction, but it's still a pet peeve of mine.

My new years resolution is to try and cut down on inhaling Sandra's smoke, I can do this by hiding her cigs, although this might be more of a health hazard than inhaling her smoke, or cough in her face and ask her politely to put out her cigarette, again this may result in painful grasping of arm and consequently no nookie for yours truly, eeeek! so a difficult resolution at best.Posted Image

I've made the firm resolve to write down every film I watch in 2002. Everytime I need to make a list, I can't recall just what I've seen. So, since I just LOVE lists, I am going to keep better records. Bruce

I've already kept my resolution. I'm tired of the expense of going through dealers to purchase neat guns, so I've sent in my application for a Type 3 Federal Firearms License. Posted Image See www.atf.treas.gov/forms/pdfs/f531016.pdf for the form. Now I can buy neat guns through the mail and save money. Buying Mausers is as addictive as buying DVDs.....
