Holy Shit!!!

Mitsubishi planning 3D Blu-ray player?!

"... Mitsubishi apparently has a Blu-ray player in its labs that can convert existing 2D movies into 3D on the fly."

Well, this article's from way back in the glory days of August 2007. And the technology they're talking about sounds like cheap parlor tricks—not the stuff I'm interested in, which is properly-designed 3D. With all the 3D movies coming out in theaters, I don't see why they couldn't be brought to the home market with the 3D element intact.

From some message boards I've combed through, it seems the problem may be in the wide variances in television sets. Analog, rear projection, LCD, plasma. But I find it hard to believe that there isn't some way to reproduce the imagery, and those cheap 3D glasses you get at the theater.

In other news—without getting into it—everything is on the verge of being completely fucked up. I guess that's the half-empty way of putting it. The half-full version would be "everything is on the verge of getting completely sorted out"... but that version requires a bit of a deus ex machina.

(But I suppose Hollywood careers are built upon deus ex machinas.)

Passed out early last night, woke up early this mourn. Skipped the subway, took the overground to work, footing it down along Central Park West. It's amazing how different the world looks in the early mourning light. It looks so bloody... hopeful... it would border on the offensive if it weren't so fucking persuasive...

Maybe I'm just like Rorschach.

And I just want to watch this whole world BURN.

"If it's war the Asians want..."

And the fallout of that article HERE.
