What’s been going on since I last updated? I got my new TV, and have been loving every minute spent with it. My only complaint is that it seems like Samsung discontinued the Picture-in-Picture feature on their new TVs. I used to play Wii while watching TV, and it looks like I won’t be able to do that anymore. I wrote Samsung an email asking them if there’s a work-around.
So far I’ve been ordering Blu-rays on Netflix to show off my system. I rented Speed Racer (which isn’t as bad as I thought, but also not great) and Taken (which was pretty awesome). Speed Racer looked absolutely incredible; it’s almost worth watching for the image quality alone. I bought The Dark Knight on Craigslist for $10, so I’ll be checking that out tonight.
Taylor and her friend Jessica have been in town since last Thursday, so I’ve been running all over with them. We went to Universal Studios on Saturday (pretty fun, but no repeat-value) and hiking in Malibu on Sunday. They’re down in San Diego tonight, which gives me an evening to catch up on rest.
Speaking of San Diego, my roommate Carson is down there for the summer. A girl from Michigan State is going to sublet from him, but I don’t know when she plans on showing up. Until then, I’ve been getting a glimpse of what it would be like to live by myself. It’s probably unhealthy how much I love it.
Back to Dark Knight…
