AVRant #35: Sitkownd

January 3rd, 2008

Dina is wearing a tiara and Tom makes a New Year resolution. Tom’s receiver/phone drama. What did Tom’s dad get for Christmas? Pain and frustration. Dina’s receiver analogy. There’s a new Internet word. Thanks NSX guys for pwnage of epic proportions. Dina admits something that actually pains her. Tom’s wife won’t let him play Guitar Hero – not for the reasons you think. Tom had a great Christmas with lots of great gifts. Thank you Comcast. How do you make a green speaker? Well you just… um… well… Tom’s not sure. But it doesn’t exactly smell like teen spirit to him. Tom tried to sound altruistic… and failed. Dina wants aquarium speakers. Wisconsonites – call to arms! Bad laws ahead! CD sales are down – is this a good thing? Tom and Dina weigh in. The DOT doesn’t want your mp3 player to work. Dina thinks that Tom’s a crazy geek. Duh. Collectables are cool. It’s the beginning of the month so vote for us on Podcast Alley. Thanks for listening.

    The best are the reviews of the book.

    “This book is a strange and wonderful surprise…This is a unique labour of love to be sure, and perhaps the most inspiring and creative piece about the Holy Trilogy that I have ever seen in a book form. In fact, I would even go so far as to say perhaps the best book that I have ever read…”

    That is a 10 on the unintentional comedy scale.

    Thank you jnmfox! Tom, check it out if you ever want to see what the inside of your book looks like!

    Nine days without opening the book and counting…

    I’m gonna be RICH! 🙂

    Oh, and I looked up the Revenge of the Jedi posters – only worth around $750. Not exactly retirement money.

    dude, if a Revenge of the Jedi poster of which you claim there were 5 printed before the recall is only worth $750, what hope do you have for your massively produced pop-up book???

    A pox on you, vile temptress! I’ll not open that book!

    I finally unpacked all my Star Wars Toys. I have like all the figures except maybe 2 from the original trilogy – this was the first generation stuff. I decided, in a fit of rage at the whores selling everything on eBay for like $1000, to let my 4-year-old play with everything. We put up a shelf in the baby’s room that holds all my larger vehicles, etc.

    eBay has ruined collectibles. Nothing is worth anything anymore unless it is in the original packaging and in AAAA+MINT condition. Collectors are now ‘freaks’ in my eyes.

    Someday, if I have more money than sense, I’ll buy some kind of collectible car that appreciates in value – and drive it to Wal-Mart every day. Just to tick off collectors.

    Andryownd – to be pwnd by your podcast co-host about being a suffering geek that won’t accept that a piece of Star Wars merchandise is just a toy and not an investment in your child’s college fund.
