why dvd's are cooler than videotapes

1. you don't have to rewind
2. no formatting to fit your screen
3. audio commentary

rented igby goes down @ the pretentious video store. there was some excellent acting in this holden caufield-inspired comedy/drama, although the majority of that acting did not come from clare danes. now, i adored my so-called life as much as the next guy, but i have yet to see ms. danes really aspire to a role post-tv gig (well, maybe romeo and juliet was an exception). luckily, she didn't detract too much from the rest of the cast.

decided to up my cool points @ the p.v.s by asking if they had any of matthew barney's films from the cremaster series (on display now @ the guggenheim). seriously, i really did want to watch a 3 hour long avante garde cowboy epic named after a part of the male genetalia. 50% of the p.v.s. employees knew what i was talking about.
