I'm totally in it.

We "rented" the Garden State DVD from Jeff last night. The picture quality was on par with Hollywood video (had to stop the movie and clean the disk only once) and overall quality, but of course, far superior to Blockbuster. Hey, did you know that when you rent a video from VIACOM/Blockbuster, you're not getting the theater release version, but a version edited for content? Yep. Cockbuster determines what you can "handle" watching. Oh, and nowhere on said films (or membership agreement) is this tidbit revealed. Good thing we've got Cockknocker looking out for us, right? Maybe it's just me, but often a scene can be rendered less poignant when one character tells another to "fork off".

And Snopes has nothing on it, so it must be true.

As for Garden State, it's high on my 2004 recommended watch list. It's a funny and tender character study, not unlike Dazed and Confused. It's everything Napoleon Dynamite wishes it was. I'd rate the soundtrack a "G" on a scale of 1-H. That Zach Braff writes one kickass blog, to boot.

Zach Braff, Zach Braff! Everybody loves Zach Braff! He's like the new John Cusack.
