Dear Universal Studios Home Video: I purchased your Bourne Identity DVD, and I am not happy. You have locked the disk so that I can’t fast forward past your coming attractions trailers.

Yesterday LA offers an historic look at the Los Angeles through some wonderful Vintage Postcards.
Scholars have learned that all the colors in the universe originate from a mere fifteen fundamental physical causes. Read about them here.
Yes!!! I’ve finally added Party Girl to my DVD Collection. I’ve been waiting for this one for EVER. It’s full-screen which sucks hard, and the transfer doesn’t look great. Although that could easily be the source they had to work with. It was an independent, and I don’t remember what the quality of versions I’ve [...]
