STRONG BAD SINGS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL!Over at Homestar Runner, this week's "Strong Bad E-mail", "lady...ing", features Strong Bad claiming he answered the question as to how to get ladies "like, 5 or 6 years ago. In fact, I think it mighta been the first email I ever checked." and throws to a faux circa 1999 "sbemail", done in the style of the "lost" early Homestar Runner toon, "Marshmallow's Last Stand". Except it's so old, that the Cheat only has it on LaserDisc.
Everything is better on a LaserDisc.
Whatever happened to the LaserDisc?
So true. I got a LaserDisc player in the spring of 1997, just as they were beginning to be supplanted by DVD, and, while I don't miss the big LaserDisc prices ($80 Canadian for the dub-only My Neighbor Totoro?) and while I don't miss the scarcity of disks in the stores, especially after the end of 1997, there is just nothing like pulling one of those Texas-sized silver saucers from the sleeve and listening to the player purr. Those disks are so big, I feel more virile just holding them. And I never bothered replacing both of the Spielberg-directed Jurassic Park films (of which I am one of the few people who prefer The Lost World to the original, especially for the San Diego scenes), since it just feels appropriate to watch a film about dinosaurs on a video format that is large and extinct.
