At no point in your rambling, incoherent post were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having read it.

Just 3 so far - we'll see what tomorrow's releases turn up (if any)... It might go to 6 or 9.

I got an unexpected bonus check from my old employer, so I'm treating myself

Only 3 HD DVDs, but 18 Blu-rays. Before I get flamed, I have every single one of on-sale HD DVDs other than the three I bought, so I couldn't buy any more. Same with Blu-rays. So I bought every disc that I did not have already that was on-sale (except for Mission to Mars).

I took a quick look at the Amazon BD offerings, but gave up pretty quickly. As soon as I actually purchase any BD's, I effectively lock myself into getting a player, however, that doesn't make sense for me until BD profile 2.0 and the right price/performance -- so I'm basically stuck. Could probably have come up with three without too much trouble though! Still, I was able to come up with six HD DVD that made sense at $11 apiece .

Between the Heroes set, and Wings of Honneamise and Freedom Vol 2 next month, all my HD-DVD spending money is spoken for through Halloween or so. Plus I just signed back up with netflix, so I'm trying to get my purchases down to a manageable level.

I've been waiting for a way to get Universal titles on sale for quite some time so I grabbed Shaun of the Dead and 12 Monkeys although the wife did make me get Phantom of the Opera for her.

13 Here..woulda been more but I already owned the rest

Big Lebowski
TMNT
Purple Rain
What Dreams May Come
Mallrats
Shaun of the Dead
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Casino
The Game
Happy Gilmore
Doom
The Deer Hunter
Meet the Parents

Only one I missed that I don't have is Blue Planet but I don't want it enough to pay $20 for it (I already have Planet Earth and the 9 disc pretty scenes discs that I can't remember the name of)

If the BDs had been cheaper I might have ordered a few of those but figured for every 3 BDs I bought I could have gotten another HD DVD (or 4 if you want to count that way)
