Just a short note that I’ve added Kung Fu Panda that I got for Christmas to my DVD collection. I actually haven’t watched it yet; however, I suspect it will be pretty good! 🙂 As is always the case now, a cover and trailer have been provided.

Four movies added to DVD collection and music video modifications.
Along with The Dark Knight, I also got the following four movies for Christmas:
- The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
- The Incredible Hulk
- The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
- Wanted Angelina Jolie is just plain hot!
As I’ve been doing lately, both the front DVD cover and trailer are included. Concerning the trailers, I have started adding &fmt=18 to the URL of YouTube videos to download a higher quality video in MP4 format. I learned of this trick here. These videos will still play fine in the flash player.
On my Entertainment page, I have corrected a problem that I noticed with the music videos. It seems that many were removed due to copyright/compensation disputes between YouTube(Google) and Warner Music Group and as such I have had to replace them with alternate videos of the same songs I found on YouTube. Who knows if they’ll remain or not 😕 . Do a search on Google for more articles concerning the issue. Dumb. All they are doing is shooting themselves in the foot. There are several artists whose music I would have never bought (Bond and Vanessa-Mae as two examples), if I had not stumbled across their music on YouTube and other sources.
The Dark Knight added to DVD collection.
I’ve added The Dark Knight to my DVD collection. I’ve got both the front cover and trailer as usual. It was one of the best movies of 2008 and most certainly the best Batman movie so far.. at least I think so. 🙂
Two movies added to DVD collection and other website changes.
Although I have had them for awhile, I’ve added the following two movies to my DVD collection:
Both of these are great movies and I hope to expand my collection on Christmas. 🙂
I have also added a widget on the right side of my blog to display a random image from my gallery. In order to do this, I had to install a new plug-in for my blog. It is the Executable PHP widget which allows me to include PHP code between <?php ?> tags. In addition, I have installed the Revision Control plug-in to control how many revisions of a post WordPress saves as I am writing an article. I looked for something like this when I noticed 15 revisions of a post that I had published. Since I am the only one editing my posts, I clearly do not need that many revisions hanging around taking up database space. With this plug-in I have initially setup a default setting of 2 revisions just in case I really screw some post up or something LOL. I may adjust this amount. At least I do have some control over it now.
Main websites changes
I have also changed around the home page of my main website. I moved the weather/flag image to its own section on the right edge above the random gallery image. I never really did like how I had it before as it always appeared odd.. probably some lack of symmetry issue. I think my home page looks much better now. I did modify the gallery image block a little by adjusting the CSS as I thought the way it looked in my blog was better.
Well, I guess that’s it for the moment. 🙂
Four more movies added to DVD collection.
The movies I had lent to my parents have been returned so I can now add them to my DVD/Home Theater page. They are:
In addition to the front DVD cover, I have also included a trailer. I will admit that some of the trailers with these last eight additions are not as good as some of the previous ones; however, the process took much less time and effort as I just downloaded existing flash trailers I found on the IMDb site versus making my own from better quality source material. I might see if I can find a better source to use as these seem to be 25fps and if memory serves the Pathfinder one has an audio problem in the middle of it. Anyway, while I was at it, I also updated some of the content on my DVD/Home Theater page.
