    Now there's a surprise...found dead in her north London flat. I'm surprised it took this long.

    Down here in the deep south the reaction is: why couldn't it have been Obama?

    She was a fairly new singer with a very rugged yet lovely voice. Only 27 years old. It's sad to see anyone young go. Talent or not.

    The boyfriend was checking the news on his phone and said "Holy shit! Babe, you better sit down." :cry


    At least he pays attention enough to know who I'm a fan of.

    She's like a REALLLLLY strung out Britney Spears. But even worse looking.

    I never saw any talent there.

    Okay now i feel old, i turned 13 in 1994, I remember it too, i got a cordless phone (not that i fucking used it much) and we had rented Maverick, yes in the dark days before DVD lol, only VHS available for rent. Laserdiscs...even though i'm a movie geek, i cannot fathom paying 100 bucks for a movie

    Yes Laserdiscs were crazy expensive! Probably cause they were afraid if it dropped in price people would stop going to Cinemas or some crazy shit, but unmatched quality prior to DVD, though some say they're better than DVD because they're uncompressed unlike DVD which utilize compression techniques.

    Some snobs would say that Laserdiscs were the way to go and anyone who buys VHS is a retard, but i'd be damned to be paying 100 dollars for a moive when i can get the same movie on VHS for 5 or 10 dollars

    I'm not much into contemporary music, except that my collection of contemporary French and Italian music is growing (I speak the former language, which opens the door to understanding the latter). A sad reflection of current music is that in the decade from 2000 to 2010, who were the largest-selling artists in the world? The Beatles. And this is BEFORE the CD remasters were released.

    What's happened?

    Fuck the both of you, I was 13 in 1977.
    Actually, I sold Laserdiscs and players in high school, you were looking at $1600 for the player and up to $200 for a movie. I remember when VHS movies were $89. Hell, I remember $700 CD players.

    I remember being happy with just VHS, but at times i wish Blu Ray would come out in Laser Disc sized platters so the packaging would be larger and cooler and so they'd need less compression (unless it allows them, wiht compression to put entire complete television series or movie trilogies on one disc)

    Did you really need to drag politics into this? -_-

    As for Winehouse, I might sound heartless, but it doesn't affect me at all. She alone was in control of her destiny, and she chose to remain an addict. She wrote her own book, including the end.
