AVRant #44: Killing Brain Cells
Dina’s got a new friend and Tom makes an old joke. That’s OK, Dina still falls for it. Dina’s got brain damage. Is streaming content the future? Tom and Dina discuss. Tom hates previews. More education about the high def formats (guess we should start referring to it as Blu-ray) is needed. While there are lots of types of compression, the thing to remember is that they are all bad. Geek alert! Want to see if your music has a lot of dynamic compression? Tom’s got a suggestion. Dina’s getting some tattoosâ€¦ maybe. Universal remotes are your friend. Tom’s friend needs a remote intervention. We talk about The Office (the BBC version) and Dina’s got the name completely wrong (score one for Tom). Dina hates British TV. Dina needs a Monty Python intervention. More and more content is being streamed. This is a good thing. There’s nothing on TV. NYPD Blue FCC ruling. Want to become Internet famous? Write a book (or call us 978.OFF.RANT – we’ll make you as famous as Kurt). Tom said Bill Campbell but he meant Bruce Campbell. Negative 3 geek points. Viral marketing campaigns are the wave of the future. Tom wants a brain beam. Tom makes another old joke (Dina catches this one). Dina says something dirty. Thanks for listening.
