Never too late to update  
So I finally - FINALLY - got myself a flatscreen TV. It's a 55" Sony 3D capable full HD smart tv, such a huge change from my old CRT 27 inch tv that's lasted me since 1999 and was still going strong, so I felt just the tiniest bit guilty about updating.

And now I need to update my DVD player, as my current one is really old and doesn't transmit / read HD, so when I try to play a DVD it looks really grainy on the screen. If I have to update it anyway, may as well go to a bluray player - but I need one that will play multi region DVDs so has that limited my choices? Why yes, yes it has.

Anyhow, to celebrate the successful update I spent this evening streaming Pros songvids to the big screen. I have over 130 Pros songvids - what a prolific and talented fandom is Pros! And what a fun Saturday night I've had.

Now I just have Rage playing in the background, a nice accompaniment to a Saturday night. Hope everyone else is having as relaxing and enjoyable time.

Being mounted on the wall would be a bonus! Mine is on a stand, with a strap at the back which is screwed to the entertainment unit so the cats can't knock the thing over.
I do think it's a bit of overkill, with the smart functions and the 3D, but it was the size I wanted and 100HZ refresh rate, the smart functions and 3d just came with it.
Of course now I need to upgrade my DVD player because it can't transmit HD pictures, so DVDs look very grainy.... :-(
