There's already about a dozen or so titles on 4K Bluray. I'm hoping to pick up the new Sony 4K player when it comes out next month.

There is also 4K content on Netflix.

My mother found MST3K 25th Anniversary Edition at Target for $20 and decided I would like it.

It has Moon Zero Two, The Day The Earth Froze, The Leech Woman, and Gorgo, plus a bonus disc with Mitchell and The Brain That Wouldn't Die. So yeah, she was right.

Red Rising, a future dystopia about colonizing Mars and vat-grown colonists with a caste system based on their skin color (Reds are laborers; Golds are rulers). I've heard good things about it.

Oh, you poor bastard... Is it at least the edition that bundles Jigsaw together with the lousy-but-genuinely-trying Lovecraft knockoff, Totem? Or are you going to have to take Jigsaw straight up, no chaser?

On a brief vacation to western North Carolina and the northeastern tip of Tennessee, besides the stuff one often picks up on such trips (such as a set of bowls for the kitchen) we bought some books, at a couple of places that were quite a contrast. One was a "book exchange" for a small town; bring a book and take a book, or make a small donation. I picked up Typee by Herman Melville (1842) and Pox: Genius, Madness, and the Mysteries of Syphilis by Deborah Hayden for a few bucks. The other place was a "rare and collectible" place, where we paid more than I should mention for a book signed by Helen Keller and a first edition of Familiar Poems, Annotated by Isaac Asimov (1977).
