High Def Phenomenon

I have always marveled at things some people watch on television. I had also heard that hi-def will make you watch some strange things, mainly for the simple fact, it’s in hi-def! Now, I have experienced this first hand. I will watch ANYTHING in high definition! It is true! Boring shows about sunrises across the planet, losers fixing motorcycles and arguing like three year olds, shows that simply show still images, and photos set to crummy elevator music. I have sat through all of this, simply mesmerized by detail and clarity. That said, I have reached a new low yesterday. I sat through, in my opinion, one of the most expensive crapathons ever produced…..

Dune

God, I am so ashamed. What makes matters worst is, it wasn’t even the best looking movie I have seen in Hi-def, but I sat there, eyes scanning over the 16:9 image, marveling at the clarity, enjoying FINALLY having picture quality that matches my sound. I wonder how long before the novelty of it all wears off and I get my TASTE back?
