Sony Bravia XBR2 LCD TVs

They are about to hit the streets in Toronto shortly (they’re already all over the place in the U.S.), maybe less than a week in places. I saw these TVs in the U.S. recently and they look good. I might get one if I can find a good deal. Should fit nicely in the living room on the wall. Sony Style Link A Review

It comes with several HDMI inputs, so I’m thinking of connecting the Blu-ray player to it. Blu-ray in a few places in the U.S. is too cutting edge for some (video) stores. However at stores that sell the players, you can expect to find discs for sale there.

As an aside, I’m glad I collected a few DVDs over the years. Many years ago I watched “The Warriors”. Over that (long) period of time, I have drifted to a slightly right of center political philosophy (from slightly left of center) and I was surprised at how differently “The Warriors”, the new directors cut comes across to me now. Of course, times are different too, I just watched a show about the Battle for the World Economy (6 hours, PBS) (globalization, socialism and such) — apparently I’m not the only one. Anyhow, the movie has been changed a bit to reflect its roots from the graphic novel upon which it was based. So for those of you caught in the globalization tide, it’s time to get a new TV and rewatch some movies from your past, or buy a Mercury Grand Marquis, a VCR and head back to the coal mines if you prefer The Old Ways.
