When Two Become One

Thematically and metaphorically appropriateI’ve spent the last couple of days at a farmhouse north of Peterborough, celebrating the marriage of two very good friends, and have been away from the internet for something like 40 hours. I am happy to see things have been running smoothly in my absence.

I am also very happy to see the news over at The Digital Bits that Samsung’s high-def combo player is, in fact, happening, and that it will play HD-DVD discs with full support for their interactive features, as opposed to the more limited operability provided by LG’s current model.

No information on pricing yet, and it’s not due until “the holidays”. But still.

Oh, and if you’re at all interested in my ramblings about “Perfect Stranger” and the sordid legacy of the erotic thriller, check out my latest Sympatico/MSN movie column. I’m having a lot of fun with the new gig; hope you’re enjoying it, too.
