Every week I make a list of notable discs being released so I can figure out what I “need” to buy. ;) It’s a really weak week. There are a couple of “recent oldies” being released on Blu-Ray, like *Monster* and *Braveheart*, but those don’t appeal to me enough to have a High Def version. […]

Subtitle: Kids movies – we watch ’em so you don’t have to One of the things I’m digging lately is that I get to go to movies again.

I remember it as being a little _too_ frenetic, but I’m anxious to see it again. * “The […]

China Rising, Rent-Seeking Version « The Baseline Scenario. The sector has devoted great resources to tilting all playing fields in its direction. Consumers are taken advantage of; consumer protection is vehemently opposed. And great risks are taken, with the downside handed off to the government (and the consumers again, as taxpayers).
