Lust in The Heart of South Jersey

I want to talk to you, gentle reader, about an object that Evil Chicken desires; nay – LUSTS after. It’s something that would be put to excellent use for years to come in the Evil Chicken household. It would be a wonderful place to play the Nintendo Wii and the X-box 360 (that we don’t own yet) as well as, the Blue Ray or HD/DVD (that we don’t own either). Gentle reader I lust after a Sony LCD, 1080p (1920x1080), HD TV. I’ll take any size as long as it starts at 46 inches on up.

Oh yeah, livin’ large.

Why Sony? They have an excellent track record when it comes to televisions. The Trintatron was an amazing step forward – I have a sneaking suspicion that a Sony BRAVIA or a Grand WEGA would be too.

Why LCD? No reflection to throw off the picture, which, by the way, is 6 times sharper than a regular set. Does that sound like much of a difference? Go see for yourself side by side – the LCD is more real than real. Jaw dropping vivid color and detail that is simply startling.

1080p – What’s that? Dear friends, that is the magic number when it comes to HDTV. Wikipedia (my favorite second brain) says the following, “1080p is the shorthand name for a category of video modes. The number 1080 represents 1,080 lines of vertical resolution, while the letter p stands for progressive scan or non-interlaced. 1080p is considered an HDTV video mode. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a horizontal (display) resolution of 1920 dots across and a frame resolution of 1920 × 1080 or about 2.07 million pixels. The frame rate in hertz can be either implied by the context or specified after the letter p (such as 1080p30, meaning 30 frames per second). 1080p is sometimes referred to in marketing materials as "True High-Definition" or "Full High-Definition". 1080p is currently the digital standard for filming digital motion pictures. The best technology commercially available is 1080p. Directors such as George Lucas (in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith) shoot their digital films in this (1080p) high definition mode to be shown in theaters equipped with 1080p digital projectors.” Do not kid yourselves gentle readers 1080p is what you want – what you desire… Dare, I say lust after. I know I do.

So does anyone know what the winning lottery numbers were tonight?

I don't know the winning lottery numbers, but my dinner companion this evening asked the waitress for a winning lottery ticket when she asked if she could bring us anything else. We didn't get it, so I won't be gifting you with the tele anytime soon.

OK, it was just the ML Diner, what do you expect???

Thanks All!

Yeah – someday living rooms will resemble the bridge of the Enterprise. I can’t wait. The HDTV that I’d like runs about $3,000. Ouch. The good news is that the prices are coming down – supply and demand and all that stuff.

As for why the posts are moderated, I never expected that I’d have anyone reading the blog let alone leave a comment. I thought that I’d just be getting junk mail (which I have). Quiet honestly, I’m still figuring a lot of stuff out. Stay tuned it may be changing in the near future.
