Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your DVD Collection

Guzzlefish ain't perfect.  Not by a long shot.  There are probably a couple dozen things I have that still aren't on the site yet.  

Plus, there's still that thing where they only count a box set as one title, no matter how many individual titles it may contain.  

Yep.  Those are my only two peeves.  The one my friend has is nice since it counts your dvd's and your titles as two separate things - but I'm sticking with Guzzlefish.  It deflates my collection though because including bootlegs and boxed sets I've got more like 345-350 whereas the site says I've got 329.

Whatever though - it is what it is...

I used to have a pair of sanuks that looked just like those but were black.  The only problem was that they got very smelly after a while and had to be disposed of.   Pretty comfortable though.

Nowadays I really only wear flip-flops to take the dogs out, so I just have 3 dollar old-navy crap ones.

that guzzlefish site looks nicer than the dvd profiler that i use, but the first like 10 titles i put into the database search came up with no matches. so i decided to add my own item.

man, that list of required elements is crazy!! i'll stick to dvd profiler where i can just add the name and purchase date of any dvd not in the database, otherwise i'll be there for like 2 years inputting all that stupid info  >:(

Did you try entering by UPC?  That's how I entered mine and it was much easier.  They had almost everything I own.

Here's my collection.  It's way cooler than you know who's:

http://www.guzzlefish.com/collection.php?username=kneelbeforezod&x=18&y=10

Movies and Games - but some of my movies (a few bootlegs and a few odds and ends) aren't in here because they just didn't exist in Guzzlefish's database.  

Certain movies like Legally Blonde (1&2) and Pride and Prejudice belong to my girlfriend.

I hope that red x wasn't going to be some snappy comeback.

This is not entirely movie related, but I found it interesting that the Reuters writer keyed into the fact that the movie was not showing within 30 miles of Crawford.  Crawford is as big as a postage stamp and they probably have to go all the way to Temple or Waco to get any decent groceries or to go to Wal Mart.  

I suspect the small town will be overwhelmed.  Rob, take all the food you think you will need with you.  Take a ton of OFF with DEET.  The last major stop is Waco.  In fact I think the last decent hotel is in Waco too.  I'd bet the media types are going to take all the good ones and I don't know if I would want to sleep on the ground Woodstock style out there.

Thanks for the tips.  If Moore is going to be there and if we go, we'll probably just drive home afterwards.


Another thing I read was that the President was going to spend the time of the Democratic National Convention at Crawford, so who knows, he might accept the invite and bring a lawnchair and a cooler full of Pabst and join y'all.  Oh yeah, I think Waco's dry.  So if you want any of the good stuff, take it with you.

Something's telling me he won't - unless he gets drunk enough to think it's a good idea to head on' down. :)


And politics aside, any movie theater owner who is short sighted enough not to show a "controverisal" movie or whatever their excuse is, is in my opinion crazy.  Look at what this thing has banked so far.  (And everybody knew it would whether they admit it or not)  Both sides of the political fence flock to see it, some mulitiple times.  It is a guaranteed profit center.  That being said I have to admit to having not gone to see it yet.  


I was hoping Rob might video tape it for me when he goes to Crawford...

If you still haven't seen it by the time the DVD comes out, you can always borrow my copy.

lol People have such vivid imaginations.


Hmm, the website is down. No way it could be a problem on my end, or their end. CLEARLY, they've been shut down by the man...

Well now, when dealing with George Lucas, that isn't really all that far-fetched.

Looks like they've run a correction:

Earlier today I reported that fan site JediDefender.com had been suspended after posting unauthorized images of packaging mock-ups from Hasbro's Star Wars: Episode III toys. Fortunately, I was wrong! Their server was down due to increased traffic!

The movie will come even closer Aug. 14, when peace activists plan to show it on a bedsheet in the front yard of a house in Crawford.

That's at the Crawford Peace House purchased by North Texans for Peace, several friends of mine are actively involved with it including my next door neighbor. The house is on the only road you can take to Bush's ranch. The problem is, he always arrives by helicopter and never sees the protests and displays at the Crawford House. I've actually been to it. My neighbor and I went down there right after it was purchased. I will admit, I was a little uneasy with all the secret service agents driving slowly by. Of course, it was new then. Now, the secret service barely pays attention to them. Obviously, this is merely a symbolic gesture. I doubt it will accomplish anything other than "neener neener neener!" (or is it "nanny nanny boo boo"?)

In that case Spiderlegs, do you know any of the email addresses of those guys or if they have a website?  The article doesn't seem to mention if this is official or not and if so when it would happen.  My buddy and I are interested in possibly driving down if it's really happening.

(Oh, and everyone please feel free to call me Rob)

How about a little love for my main man Rene Magritte:





I love lots of stuff from the Renaissance to Constructivism to Surrealism to Dada to Modernism to Post Modernism...etc...

Off the top of my mind I enjoy Rodchenko, Dali, Bosch, Duchamp, Bill Viola, Berninni, and about a thousand other painters, sculpters, photographers, filmmakers, etc...
