Bailey and Johnny
So, I bought myself a copy of Peter Jackson's The Frighteners, used from Amazon Marketplace. I haven't seen it since 1996, when it came out, and I thought it would be a good "kill the afternoon" sort of flick for us to watch in our new state as parents who can't really go out into the world right now.

Problem: the second half of the movie won't play in either of our DVD players, nor will it play in the PS2. It will play in my Mac, but it's sort of hard for us to both crowd around the laptop in order to watch a movie.

Doesn't that just suck, I ask you?

I think I shall have some Windows friend of mine rip it, burn it to a different disc, and see if that plays on a regular DVD player. If it was something I bought new, I might just up and return it, but it's not really the seller's fault that there's a disc error here, and besides, it only ran me about $8 with shipping. It's more trouble than it's worth to raise a stink about it.

Think On It

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want yourself to be happy, practice compassion.
