dvd night  
I prepare to start watching S4 Angel. On the box, dude, he looks so smirky, as if he's saying, "Shyeahh, right" to some comment offscreen.

My DVD player is about a year old and already dying. You know that absurd thing you see people do in movies and on TV, where they bitch-slap the side of a machine and it starts to work? My DVD player actually does that.

Anna to DVD player, with impotent fists of rage: I will keeeelllll you! Keeeellllll!

It does not shiver in fear. Someday it will regret its insolence.

Actually, smacking something is one of the first they teach you in an engineering field. It seems it's a tried and true fix in some cases. Worked on my old CD player, and on my new one, too.

It will bow before you in another time.

Standard repair operation 1: hit it.
Standard repair operation 2: kick it.

I learned that from a bad 80's SF movie called Spacehunter</a>, which is of the "It's science fiction, it doesn't have to make sense" school.

I had a DVD player that did that. The drawer that slides in and out to accept the DVD would get stuck. A good whack to the side in just the right spot and the drawer would slide on out. I'd had mine about a year too. It was a cheapy. Bought a newer more expensive model and moved the old one to annother room. Now the old one isn't messing up anymore. Which absolutely figures.

BWAHAHAHAHA!

I have a DVD player I haven't even dared to try and hook up yet. I've had it for two years. I honestly don't know if my tv will *show* DVDs.
