Today is your lucky day! Or it is if you like it when the 13th falls on a Friday. Okay, I know today isnt a holiday, but Ive been bad about updating, so thats what you get.

Does anyone know anything about region-free DVD players? Is it worth going to Target or somewhere to buy an ultra-cheap hackable player to augment my current (un-hackable) Sony changer? Im thinking about doing it because there are DVDs that come from other places that are totally worth watching, but are unavailable in Region 1, right? DELICATESSEN, anybody?

Also, I talked my landlord out of putting all concrete in the back yard so well still have some grass. It might actually be a change for the better – well see. So Ive averted Friday the 13ths unluckiness, at least for now.
