Just call me Rick

I need to post this picture on a yahoo group list, so I am sticking it here so that I can link to it.

Now you know.

Been a while

I have been doing my bitching and groaning in person throughout the Spring and early part of the summer. So sorry you missed out on all of that.

My current hate, besides the heat of a dry summer and the fact that The Boss Lady's summer break ends in a couple of days? Netflix DVDs that force you to watch the previews. The last few discs we received were programmed so that you could not fast forward though the previews to navigate to the main menu. Tonight's feature presentation Sherlock Holmes is no exception to this incredibly annoying trend.

Technically they aren't forcing me to WATCH the previews, they just aren't letting me skip them. I turn off the TV while the DVD player does it's thing and I'll go back to the movie later, when I can access the main navigation screen.

Life must be going pretty well if this is the biggest complaint I can bring tonight.

Just for the record, this DVD had somewhere near 13 minutes of previews. That I did not watch,
