    Gee, how refreshing and original, a slam involving a negative gay connotation. Too bad the moderators didn't say something about Ricky's despicable and offensive homophobic comment. It's very sad that such comments are allowed here. We really do have a ways to go yet. Hopefully someday, being gay will no longer be regarded by microbrains as the ultimate insult. Absolutely effing pathetic.

    Fulci, widescreen on a 27 inch? No thanks. No movie is worth such strain. Save your eyes for better times (big screens coming from every direction and prices are more and more reasonable).
    Have you noticed that my presumption was correct? You are preaching to the preacher. Defcon has 51 inch TV...

    So let's keep it real and in perspective. No need to go overboard especially when substance is missing.
    All through college I watched widescreen movies on VHS and LaserDisc using a 20" Mitsubishi

    I'd still watch widesceen if all I had was a 13" TV

    I don't care about picture size. I care about OAR

    In the early to mid-90's when LaserDisc was nearly mainstream I had a friend who worked at Suncoast and his biggest complaint was people who would come in and buy a bunch of mostly action movies on widescreen LaserDisc. He could always tell that they were new to LaserDisc and sure enough most of them would come back and complain about the "loss" of picture. Suncoast had these cool diagrams that explained the difference with side by side pictures but most of these people also seemed to have big screen rear projection sets and he said it was not uncommon for them to say something like, "Hey I just paid $5,000 for a 50" TV I ain't gonna watch a movie that only fills up half the screen"

    How do you argue with that? There is no logic behind it!

    He would take the LaserDiscs back (he had no choice) but he would tell them rather rudely that they might as well just return their LaserDisc player since most movies where widescreen on LD then. They would look at him in shock. Luckily he was a manager and could get away with that hehehe ... now he owns his own video rental store and pisses off a lot more poeple!

    So anyways ... I don't know what to tell you. Where I sit my couch can't be more than 5 feet max from the TV. That's good enough for me. I would like a larger TV but times are bad for me as of late (hence my purchase of a cheap 27" TV) so I can't complain right now. Even if I had all the money in the world I wouldn't get anything bigger than a 32" with my current set-up. If I had the room and all the money in the world I would probably go with one of those 4:3 16x9 enhanced mode 40" direct tube SONY televisions. I don't like rear projection and I'm not sold on plasma either. Alas I don't have $2,500 at the moment nor the room really hehehe

    - John "FulciLives" Coleman

    P.S.
    The last little line in your post is rather rude and not appreciated.
    I completely agree. I've got a 26" set, and I'm perfectly happy watching films in 2.35:1 ratio. Seeing as much as possible of the filmed image is most important to me. I'd love a widescreen set, but can't afford it at this point. I'm a laserdisc fan from way back. Black bars never bothered me; on the contrary, they were always a welcome sight, because that meant that I was seeing the film (as close as was possible outside of a theatre anyway) as it was meant to be seen. You get used to the black bars. Films were routinely released letterboxed on VHS and LD in Japan for years before the U.S. started doing it in limited instances. We always seem to play catchup over here.

    Your post was gay !!!!!

    WTF ???? In my opinion the moderators should say something to you..... This not a gay activist site and is non-politcal. Keep your politcal driven emotions and gayness to yourself funboy........

    Wow- While I don't agree it should be posted, it really suprises me that someone that got attacked so miserably in the beginning of the thread would attack someone like that for a comment that wasn't even directed at you.
    I guess it doesn't take long to forget how it felt on the other side of the fence.

    Sometimes we even have the ability to prove our own signatures right.

    I think we should start a roster - once a week someone will grave-dig this thread so we can keep it going.

    Ever heard of the term, "tongue-in-cheek" ???

    It's called a joke. If you were an active poster and not just a lurker you would have noticed that lots of people joke with lots of other people all the time. Unfortunately most of it seems to be going straight over your head. If you are offended by something, report it to the "Report This Post" thread.

    If you don't like it, **** off.
    If in doubt, Google it.

  8. What jimmalenko said.



    Especially the 'going straight over your head' pun.

    Because I don't care what people say and don't take it personal...... Actually the people that had the "harshest" comments for me, are the ones I admire most for their wit, sarcasim, creativity, and ability to take a joke. Most of all IT WAS FUNNY !!!!! So I was never on "the other side of the fence" loser 8)

    I can ****in' believe how fragile and sensitive people are !!!!! In lieu of all that you are a perfect example of my signature......

    In the words of Jimmelenko If you don't like it, **** off.

    I'm gonna have to immortalise that...but how...

    It might offend a few too many people if I put it in my signature

    Although, I do have STFU as my avatar and RTFM as my Member Status, so anything's possible...
    If in doubt, Google it.

  12. I'm gonna have to immortalise that...but how...
    Could switch the text in the avatar....... Maybe with the strobe effect the text may burn into people's minds (Subliminally) and become less emotional and less depedant on vagisil and pamprin

    BTW jtoodlesj, these people who you say "attacked me" are also some of the ones that helped me most with my questions when I stumbled onto this site. They are kind of like the dads that beat their kids until they get it right

    **** off yourselves *******s

    You weren't admiring them so much early in the thread, you ******* hypocrite. Read your own words punk.

    It goes to show that people that don't have a real life and can't get attention have to come here to "flex" their supposed muscle and draw attention to themselves with flashing avatars and punk-ass comments.

    The same pussies that wouldn't look you in the eye on the street have balls galore in the anononymity of the internet.

    It's the same 5 or 6 TROLLS that are such losers they try to belittle anyone who doesn't agree with them. Just because they didn't agree with the way you wanted to zoom your movies they jumped all over you.

    Whether they helped you or not doesn't make them any less of an *******. It just added you to the list.

    They did it to you and your feeble mind fell into the same trap when someone expressed an opinion you didn't agree with.

    Here, read your own ******* words you moron:
    Ya know what's so funny jimmadorko, is that the real analogy is, if you aren't part of the solution, your part of the problem..... Obviously if you have read my original post (which wouldn't suprise me if you couldn't read), then you wouldn't feel the need to run your mouth and look like a fool.

    As for this forum, it's about discussion, and while my post may be of no interst to you, then take a hike a go elsewhere !!! There are many topics throughout this site I think are stupid, however it does not mean that I have to go in and insult or question their intelligence over it !!!!

    The irony of your ignorance and analogy is that there is no way around "the remote" chief....

    If anyone has a problem with handling equipment, it's probably you !!!

    BTW, thanks for the links Skynet
    Your "admiration" really shines through. Now you are celebrating with a person you called a fool. I guess we know what that makes you.


    ******* hypocrite. He was jimmadorko. Now you guys are sharing a hotel room. Go figure.

  16. Ah, an Indolikaa Special is born.

  17. jimmalenko, you were asked by Baldrick to change your old
    avatar - this new one, although funny, is kinda close to the line
    if not over it. Please change it... and can we have a non flashing
    avatar as well??!! Thankyou.

    -edit-

    Oh.. and lose some of that swearing.. the Admin has stated
    that swearing in the subject forums is not ok.
    This includes you jtommyj. Keep it cool.

  18. Ya know little tommy, it goes it show you that people can dish stuff out and take it...... And when all said and done, it's no big deal.... Unless it's you.

    It certainly has nothing to do with coming here to "flex", seemd to be your problem coupled with denial...... I hate see how you handled high school

    Growing up as kid in my neighboorhood, you got respect by proving yourself and that included getting into a fight someone and then having the ability to be mature enough to get over it, be friends, and joke about it later.

    It's also funny that you didn't post or quote later on how some agreeded to disagree and still gave lots of advise later and was helpful despite all the bashing that took place earlier.

    Get a life tamponj......

    I really do hope the mods lock this thread....... Give me another yellowcard in the process if necessary..... The sad part is I started it

    Dude ,please try to stretch your intellect a bit. Your little cutesy effort at puposefully mispelling peoples names isn't funny and it show a lack of creativity and wit when you use it every post when someone doesn't agree with you.

    Growing up as kid in my neighboorhood, you got respect by proving yourself and that included getting into a fight someone and then having the ability to be mature enough to get over it, be friends, and joke about it later.
    Yes this is how we handled it also, but after we agreed we didn't roam the streets looking for the next person to bash like you did here .We weren't that immature in high school, let alone here.

    Because I don't care what people say and don't take it personal......
    You don't take things personal ? There hasn't been one post here that has ripped you that you haven't resorted to name calling or some other method to try to belittle the poster. That's alot of reaction for someone who doesn't take these things personal.

    The comments on the guys sexual preference and calling him gay show the level of your intellect and your TRUE tendencies since you couldn't just let it go and had to bash on to try to "prove" that you don't like gays either, therefore you're a real man and you and the other idiot have some common ground.

    Hey ,i'll be the first to agree he shouldn't have posted it here but what if he just had a brother or something that was gay and died of aids or what ever and was just being overly sensitive.

    You should have followed your own advice and just walked away from a sitting duck but you just weren't enough man to do it, were you?

    In other words, clean it up when you leave the Off-Topic bordello?

  21. Ok here is trifecta for ya, to unfortunatley get carded, make my last response to tommyj, and lock this ******* thread as it getting quite old !!!!!!!

    You sound like a girl who has nothing better to do just like the gay activist post !!!!! I really could care less to here about people's alternative lifestyles on a DVD forum. There other ******* boards for that kind of shit.

    As for my changing of names I will make it a "little less cutesy for you" and say that your a BITCH. I am not out looking to bash anybody, I can come across harsh at times and I admit that, but it's not be taken personal.

    And you should read my signature again, and learn from it retard. As for being man enough, you should kept your mouth shut.

    Hopefully that does it !!!!!!

    You are in breach of the forum rules and are being issued with a formal warning. I gave you plenty of leeway as
    you were jumped on first. In any other circumstances, ignoring a
    moderator's request will get you banned instantly!

    Oooooooooooh. I'm a shakin' now. I'm a bitch, a retard. No , you don't take things personal at all.

    You obviously don't care about anyone but you. The mod Offline just asked us to clean up the language and you drop another F-bomb. You can't respect anything or anyone who's opinions and feelings might be different than yours.

    A little harsh but it's not to be taken personal ? Then why don't you do what they teach teenagers to do and THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK OR TYPE idiot. You take EVERYTHING personal,hence the name calling, you liar.

    People aren't on this earth to make allowances for your harshness or your weaknesses. You sure didn't make any for the guy that posted.

    I have no more idea that he's gay any more than I know that you're gay and neither do you.

    But you seemed to "know" he was .Were you afraid he was going to "out" you or something ?

    And for calling ME a bitch, you sure seemed to know about
    depedant on vagisil and pamprin
    Just pick some up yesterday at the store ? Fresh in your mind , huh ?

    So i think it's just a little more likely that you are the real BITCH, Bitch !


    BTW, my wife just walked in and wanted me to tell you there were good coupons in the Sunday paper for your Vagisil. Better stock up cause you sure are acting itchy.

  23. Locking this topic.
