No Particular Subject

w00t! Another weekend 😀 I’m all about that. Too bad it’s not another 3-day one, though *sigh*

So, I’ve been converting movies for my 360. I downloaded Sanctuary this week. It’s a very nice web series, thus far. It stars Amanda Tapping from SG-1/Atlantis. It’s in HD, too. They’re pretty short episodes, 17-20 minutes long. I’ve seen only one episode, but so far it reminds me of The X-Files and Underworld. There’re 8 episodes, and I’m up to number 6 in conversion.

I’ve gotten my first movie off of Unbox from Amazon; A Dog’s Breakfast, the murder-mystery/comedy that stars a bunch of people from SG-1/Atlantis. I must be on some Stargate star kick or something. haha. Anyhoo, Unbox looks nice, but too bad it doesn’t deal out HD content. I’m about to download the pilot to The Bionic Woman from there (the new version by David Eick), which is free for who knows how long.

This Unbox thing is a very interesting concept. I had been pondering getting a TiVo, but this may eliminate that desire. Why pay a bottomless subscription fee (basically rental every month, fixed-fee despite how much you do or don’t use it) when you can purchase as you need it? Mind you, it’s not perfect…but, it seems that all of the series I am interested in are on there. Plus, if there’s any truth to ratings slumps because of TiVos (personally, I think it’s hooey, but I don’t know that for sure), then this seems like a great solution–they get their moola and I get commercial-less content and help to keep the series going. Between Unbox and XBL Marketplace, I might have all the bases covered.

Ruthie has finally seen the season 3 finale of BSG. She seemed most impressed 🙂

Volleyball shall be played today, which is nice. I’m all about some of that. I’m kinda meh when it comes to volleying, but I’m dynamite when it comes to serving 😀

The Cubs are in 1st place by 1.5 games with 15 games to go. Oooooh, if they could hold out. hehe. If they can’t, they probably won’t win the wild card because the Central Division is particularly weak in comparison to all of the others of the MLB. In any case, no matter how they end up doing, it’ll be better than last season–which is good, and maybe it’ll lead to good things next year. Story of a Cubs fan’s life 😉 lol.
