I’m actually back today. As most good nerds know, The Avengers movie came out on DVD yesterday, so I decided to get out and buy a copy. In my search, I find that the regular DVD release to be lacking in the neato bonuses I like on my DVDs, so I decide to look at what the blue-ray release has to offer. That’s it. I guess I must finally resend my previous statements to my family about how we don’t need a blue-ray player. I find a affordable one at best-buy and pick up the 4-disk blue-ray that comes with a 3-D version of the movie, a short film apparently only found on the blue-ray release, a crap-ton of bonus features, digital download of the movie for ipod, a digital download comic, and the soundtrack. You see, since my mom wanted to watch NCIS, I decide to go ahead and get all the online bonus stuff that came with the disc. I got all of that done, so now it was time to set up the new player. I set up the built in wi-fi on the device and I even got netflix set up on it, and all that worked with no problem. I decide “okee-doky, time to watch the short film that is on the blue-ray”. I get an error message saying unrecognized disc. I try all the various discs in the set. Same thing. I think maybe it’s just the avenger discs. Since it is supposed to play DVDs as well, so I grab my Gremlins disc. No bueno. I try resetting it back to the factory settings. I then try Transformers, the 1986 one of course, mumble “you’ve got the touch” at the new player, aaannnd…… fuck you player. So, that’s going back to the store at some point today.
I have to get ready to go to my Dialysis treatment, so that’s all for now.
