Anyone else caught Savage Builds yet?

Not sure how they will manage to top the first episode. I won't give anything away but it was off the scale awesome.

Last month I found out that, for the second time in my life, I have worn out a CD to the point where no CD player or drive I own can spin it up to playing speed any more due to the wear on and around the spindle area. It just slips like a MGB with a really bad clutch trying to go up a driveway when you put it in a player with a visible mechanism.

The first CD was Best O Boingo which I got in CD form in about 92 or so; being my favorite band and before the age of digital music players, I had played it so much as a kid and young adult that I had to buy a replacement in the late 90s. I've had my copy of Depeche Mode's Violator just as long and it's been in various cars over the years too. I had suddenly realized that the best rip I had of it was some mediocre 192k MP3s; when I went to re rip it I found it simply wouldn't spin up any more. -sigh- Oh well. Another purchased copy later, I have some nice 320k AAC and ALAC versions.

Looks much better than I feared, but I don't like seeing so many new faces. It was one of the things that I think killed the second and third Matrix films. The first had like 5 characters, then the second and third films had like 500. It may be a mistake to have too many characters, with too many plot lines, etc. Better to keep the story and cast tight, imo.

Because it is hot out, today has turned into a parody movie marathon. I started out with Airplane, then the sequel, now I am starting Spaceballs. I may have to change it up after that.
