People Like Us

If you enjoy a good mockumentary, I warmly recommend People Like Us. It is hilarious, perhaps second only to Spinal Tap itself.

One of the brilliant things is the narration. On the surface it sounds just like the typical BBC narration, but if you really listen to it, it is chock-full of the most hilarious manglings of the language.

Darn. It's a) kind of expensive, and b) won't play on my DVD player due to region encoding.

On the bright side, problem 'b' sorta neutralizes problem 'a'.

Hehe, yeah.

Regions suck ass.

I don't know if Windows computers are the same, but in Macs, one can play a DVD from another region. One is only allowed to switch region five times though. (I realize the point is moot if your computer does not play DVDs.)

For the newest machines I haven't found a hack for it yet.
