Betamax vs. VHS for our generation...

The writing's been on the wall for awhile, but I was one of those who thought the Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD format battle might drag on for another year or so. Wrong. Today Toshiba officially announced "the look and sound of perfect" is dead.

The fact that I got an HD-DVD player for $200 and that most all of the discs could play in a regular DVD player as well was all I needed. I am sad. Here's to you, HD-DVD. I shall be buying all the HD-DVD movies I can at rock bottom prices in your memory.

Best Buy will soon be having a fire sale, as well as all the others. I may not get new releases, but I sure as hell will get my fair share of cheap old movies.
