My Hick Life…
yet to see a movie in 2004. I saw Lord of the Rings in December (it’s not because I’m cheap, ok–that’s only part of the reason, but because I think the industry simply doesn’t crank out quality films), but I think my patience has paid off and FINALLY a movie is out that is worthy of my 15 bucks (that includes a large bag of ripoffpopcorn). I’m gonna check out a soon to be classic, "Soul Plane." I know quality when I see it, ok. I knew that Pooti Tang would be a silent hit and it ultimately turned out to be a silent blockbuster, for God’s sake! It was so good that I made Pooti Tang one of my 3 cherished DVDs (other two are: Lord of the Rings (1st one), & Ronin). I would buy more, but I think DVDs are a complete waste of money. There are so many more things I could throw $20 bucks at–like gas, music, food, poker buy-ins, or stash away money for vacations (when they bloody come around). Also, I am not one to waste my time watching movies that I’ve already seen repeatedly. Pay-per-View is more of my style. Quick & Dirty, baby!
Plus, why is it that people have these huge DVD collection? Is it a source of power or does it serve as an ego boost to possess every Godfather movie or have the Scarface: Special Edition w/ the cool tin case?! Or possibly 300 "great" DVDs organized alphabetically is good have when you bring home a chick that you really want to sleep with? It just hasn’t made sense to me yet, but I’ll be sure to ask a DVD collector one of these days and make a "Personality Type" entry on the site thereafter. When I look at one of those tacky Bed, Bath & Beyond or Ikea racks full of DVDs, I just a see a lot of disposable income gone to waste. Complete waste.
