    Any one in the Detroit Metro area?

    Hi Ralph, Seeing that this post is .. umm .. 13ish years too late and the fact that I was already living in LA at the time .... I grew up in Livonia (south of 5mile, west of Newburgh) and definitely would have been down for screenings and other related activities! I hope you are well. B

    Dog shutting off the tv with magical dog powers?

    Is she in an apartment? Or, are their any neighbors really close by? Perhaps someone close has the same tv and you're suffering from the Mr. Rogers phenomenon, as made popular by Poltergeist.

    New Mattress

    Johnny, I'd suggest just going in to one of the select comfort stores and trying it out for yourself. A quick search said that there is a select comfort store in the mccain mall. Take care, Brett

    New Mattress

    I have a couple of cats as well (with all claws in place.) Have had this mattress for 4 years now and have had no problems w/ the cats -- and they really like to spend time on it. The top part is pretty thick and there are supports on the sides. Definitely worth checking out if you have a select...

    New Mattress

    I know you're asking about a specific mattress, but I just wanted to chime in with a different suggestion. I have a select comfort mattress and it's one of the best purchases I've made. My wants (in mattress terms) change from time to time. Sometimes I want it firmer, sometimes softer. The...

    WHV Announce: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Blu-ray)

    Agreed. Definitely a release week purchase for me, as well. I wish they would include a case to match the blu ray box set, though. Would really like to complete that. Can't tell if that's what they have there in the ultimate edition (center left at the bottom of the ad,) or if that's just...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    I picked it up on a blind buy. Really enjoyed the xmen movies so wanted to give it a shot. While it's not an incredible movie, it certainly delivers on the fun and action. That being said, I thought the cg looked very artificial in many spots.

    How big a house would you really want?

    I'm presently living in a 277 square foot guest house. I have no idea how or why anyone would want to live in something smaller then this place. I can barely stand it and I live alone! My ideal house is 1800 - 2500 sq ft. As many of you, I need a dedicated home theater / music listening...

    IMDB Starmeter ratings

    This thread is cracking me up. A director friend and I used to see who could have the higher imdb rating just for fun. When he'd release something or work with another very successful director, his imdb would go up pretty good and tower above mine. Other times, I'd be the tower. I have no...
