Next Netflix DVDs
Netflix says that Brokeback Mountain and Billy Elliot (yes, I am gay; why do you ask?) are shipping today. If the last shipment is any indicator they'll be here Thursday or Friday, definitely by Saturday. Three movies a week isn't bad. The only reason the last ones took two weeks is because I was gone so much and I thought getting a new dvd/cd burner/reader would help it read scratched discs so I waited on that. For Legend of Zorro I simply skipped over the problematic section (it was in the first two minutes (production logos) so that wasn't a problem). As for Lemony Snicket, I coated and rubbed the data-side of the disc in liquid soap (like they say to), after which it worked fine.

I hear certain types of toothpaste work well too.

Brokeback Mt. is out already?

I've read about toothpaste as well, but one place I read about it in said something about staining. I'm not sure if they were referring to the disc or to something else (their cloths? *shrug*) so I decided to try the liquid soap that the back of the Netflix sleeve said to use first.

It came out the fourth of this month. I couldn't get it when it first came out because I still hadn't watched any of the three movies I already had.
