At the urging of my brother, I ‘ve decided that maybe I should join the Digital Television Revolution.

I know.

We went out and got an antenna today, but then remembered that I don’t actually have an HD tuner in my HD Television.  I did purchase it right on the cusp of the announcing of the move to digital broadcast, so that means I’ll need a tuner.  I’ll at least give it a shot, but right now I’m in the research phase, looking for a decent tuner.

So I watched regular, SD television tonight.  I managed to watch the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics on a rebroadcast.  It was very impressive, although watching it just reminded me just how much I hate commercials.

I hate them.

One of the announcers even had the gall to say, “You were out during commercials during the transition to this scene, but let me tell you, it was amazing!”

Fucking.  Ridiculous.

However, the actual ceremony was really impressive.  It’s incredible what you can accomplish when you have so many, “volunteers.”
