Nietzsche's near-miss

It's not God that's dead - it's movie theatres.  I just now realized the extent to which they will quickly become a thing of the past.  Like a huge assortment of other Americans, I've been waiting MONTHS for the release of "Babies".  Darn them - they had originally scheduled its release last week but, like the shrewd money-making buggers they are, they have now delayed it until Mother's Day.  But here's the thing:  I would GLADLY pay $50 to have this thing streamed via Netflix to our TV at home, like every other movie we watch.  It used to be that people were sure to reserve the best movies for viewing on "the big screen".  Well, our "big screen" now puts theatre technology to shame!!  The picture is so amazing that we can't even tear ourselves away from the COMMERCIALS!!  So it's only a matter of time before people realize that what we REALLY need is first-run movies streamed to our televisions (think of how much gasoline that'll save!).

Incidentally, the "Babies" trailer is a hit in its own right, with three hundred thousand views on YouTube - and that's just the HD version.  It won't allow embedding, so here's the link below:
