Yes I am a film geek

Today I learned that Chungking Express is coming out on Criterion. Number 453 in their catalogue if you're keeping track. Curtis Tsui writes about the production here. The news that one of my favorite films from one of my favorite directors is coming out on the gold standard for DVD collectors is always cause for rejoicing, but when it's a movie I already own I'm faced with a dilemma. Should I shell out the thirty bucks to upgrade (and find a good home for the old one) or be content with what I have? In this case I'm going to remain content with my Rolling Thunder Pictures edition and save the money for our diaper fund. I'm rather fond of the Rolling Thunder discs with their breathless "Quentin Tarantino presents" introductions. He's a film geek too.

Later I see that Criterion's Bottle Rocket is now available and I don't have that one. Hmmm, diapers or DVDs?

Dad will have to make some sacrifices. However, you do have friends who are still pre-fatherhood!
