Trying to watch an hilarious 'Coupling' DVD yesterday, when suddenly, nothing happened, for quote a long period of time... (actual footage of my 42in plasma!)
Bring back analogue! Bring back VCR!
This whole digital world is so temperamental and fraught with caveats, hiccups and incompatabilities! Do we realize just what it is we have locked ourselves into?

I don't know which is funnier your cry of "holy fuck" or the poor reception from a dodgy DVD you brought on your travels ;)
It was a legit DVD, which is what made it even more frustrating!
The other day "Perfume" cracked up as well, so's I'm thinking, common denominator?
My DVD player.
Whipped out the old DVD head cleaner last night and hey presto, no problemo!
You have DVDs of Coupling! Must borrow!
I just download. No cleaning of heads or anything. All that remains now is for me to figure out how to connect the computer to the TV.
