While I was out getting my Blu Ray player accessories I re-discovered something. DVD prices in retail stores are a total rip off on price and selection. Since when did America only want to buy the worst movies ever made? I was interested in purchasing a Blu Ray disc at Best Buy or Target to test out my new player but will be doing so on using the awesome $20 gift card my sister gave me instead.

Dec. 21st is the last day to get 2 day shipping for DVDs from Amazon. I recommend checking out Amazon's Criterion Collection Blu Ray Shop.

My early Brown family Christmas was this weekend and my parents gave Coralie and I an awesome new Blu-Ray DVD player. Today I went out to various stores doing some Christmas shopping/Blu-Ray accessory shopping and I ran into the wall known as RIP OFF CENTRAL aka Best Buy and Target's HDMI cable sections. The range of prices of HDMI cable available at those two stores are $30.00 to over $100 dollars. Before I made any decisions I sat down and googled "HDMI cables" on my iPhone and came up with CNET's Guide to HDMI Cables.

The CNET guide blew my mind. They explained that cheaper HDMI cables perform just as well and hold up just as long as those over prices Monster Cables and here's the craziest part... you can buy these cheaper HDMI cables online for as low as .15 cents, HDMI (2 meter) 6 foot cable HQ 1080P 1.3b , on Amazon! The most expensive HDMI cable on Amazon, AmazonBasics Ultra High Speed HDMI Cable Braided (9.8 Feet / 3.0 Meters), only $40.00!

To all of you receiving new gadgets, giving new gadgets, or buying new gadgets after the holidays don't make the mistake of handing your hard earned cash over to chain stores that are ripping people off with over priced cables. Read this article: CNET's Guide to HDMI Cables and save the extra dough.

Your Own Personal Ocean

Your Own Personal Ocean, originally uploaded by robindbrown.

I've entered one of my photos in a contest. The ultimate prizes will be handed out based upon a panel of judges but there is a "People's Choice" prize as well. That's where you come in. If enough of you follow the link and vote for my photo I could be the "People's Choice" winner in the Beach Life Category.

The title of my photo is "Your Own Personal Ocean" and it is of a couple who went sunbathing out on the water on a longboard at Crescent Beach in Laguna.

The contest uses email accounts to count your vote so if you're bored and you have more than one email account you can vote multiple times.

Monster House

A 'Friendly' House, originally uploaded by gb_packards.

Randomly came across this photo. It's a real deal monster house. Would be fun for a ghost hunter show to spend the night in.

Bioscope, a website that reports on the world of early and silent cinema, gave a shout out to my film Fleeting on Friday, April 17th. They have been following the Vimeo Weekend Project: Silent Film Contest and did a write up on not only the winner (not me) but also the entries they liked the most; one of which is Fleeting.

Check out the article featuring Fleeting HERE.
