Just forget the words and sing along

Don't bother reading this week's column. I've Got Nothing:

As with far too many of my columns, I find myself just sitting here, waiting for a brilliant idea to strike so I’ll have something interesting and compelling to write. That or I’m just procrastinating. I’ll go with that second one. I mean, I really don’t have to read The Best of Twisted ToyFare Theatre again. But it’s just so funny! I’ve got all four volumes, and they still haven’t re-printed some of my favourites. I hope that ToyFare can iron out something with DC Comics so they can reprint some of the Twisted ToyFare Theatres that had DC characters. Green Arrow had some great moments, and “Spidey joins the JLA” is still one of the best. That’s probably the one that led DC to launch their lawsuit, too. It’s really nothing but Spider-Man going on and on about how crappy DC superheroes are. But yeah. That’s why there are no DC characters in Twisted ToyFare Theatre anymore. DC Comics didn’t like how their characters were being portrayed, so they filed a cease-and-desist order.

Having a little fun right now. As I'm sure I've rambled about in the past, the next generation of DVD players are in development. The big problem is we're going to have two rival formats. In this corner, we've got HD-DVD, developed by Toshiba. In the other corner, there's Blu-Ray, developed by Sony. The movie studios and major DVD distributors are starting to take sides, and it looks like we're going to have a format war the likes of which haven't been seen since VHS vs. Beta. And, it looks like the tie-breaker will be...the porn industry.

This is an article over at Yahoo! According to the article, it's the porn industry that's always driven the latest home entertainment technology. It was porn enthusiasts who first embraced VCRs, DVDs, and high speed Internet. So, whichever next generation DVD format the porn industry decides upon, that one just may be the dominant format.

Here's the whole article!

Actually, this article inspired me in the wrong ways, and I went window-shopping online for porn DVDs. Did you know that some porn movies actually get 2-disc special editions? Mind-boggling.
