More Reasons Family Day was a Bad Idea

So apparently while we were all ignoring our families yesterday a number of somewhat significant events transpired.

#1. The format war between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD ended, with Toshiba announcing they are discontinuing the latter technology. PS3 owners everywhere are singing hosannas on the highest. The Warner Bros. decision to back Blu-Ray all but sealed the deal, but with Wal-Mart and Netflix taking the WB's cue, it was done like dinner.

#2. Lindsay Lohan got naked to recreate photos from Marilyn Monroe's quote-unquote 'Last Sitting'. Needless to say, link is NSFW, and presented purely for celebrity junkies, and not for pervs.

#3. The largest collection of recorded music [3 million records + 300,000 CDs] went on sale on eBay. Current price? $3 million. Current bids? Zero. As a collector, I would love that much space to fill with crap.

#4. Lance reporter Hannah Larking interviewed Brown Brigade at the Poverty Without Borders show [which is really just an awful name, implying that it endorses poverty and would like to see it expand as far as possible]. If you don't know, Brown Brigade is the project Dave 'Brownsound' Baksh moved on to after amicably leaving Sum41.



PS: If anyone has a source at the Magic Pony in Toronto, find out why the hell those Bord Headdress Fatimas haven't come in yet. Like seriously.
