(1) Toshiba SD-5000 Upconverting DVD Player with HDMI Out
Description: (click show to see it)
If the diabolical, shadowy figures who run the electronics industry
really cared about us, they'd invent everything all at once and then
never invent anything new ever again. See, when DVDs first hit, we ran
out and bought the most expensive DVD player we could find, figgerin' we were set for life. Then along came HDTV,
so we sold a few unnecessary internal organs on the Thai black market
to buy the best one we could find. But wait - what's this? Our stalwart
DVD player's resolution isn't up to HD
standards? Curses! And we can't afford a new one until we can somehow
grow another spare kidney.
For now, we'll make do with the Toshiba SD-5000 HD Upconverting Progressive Scan DVD Player with HDMI Out. No, it doesn't possess the mystical ability to
conjure pixels where none exist. But it does a halfway-decent job of
making its 480p progressive-scan output look like 720p or 1080i
resolutions, and it's got the HDMI output to bring the love to your HDTV.
we were upset upon realizing the upheaval that an upsurge in upstart
upgrades would stir up in our existing A/V setup. But along came the
the Toshiba SD-k5000 with upconversion to uphold our hookup - and the
upshot is, we won't have to pay up much to add it to our lineup. Onward

Third Place finisher in Derby #10, with 537 votes!
This hauntingly stark landscape is full of the sort of desperation that evokes deep feelings of longing in the beautiful young people of today. Imagine whispering your final words of passion into a pair of trauma-scarred ears and feeling a soft breeze, pregnant with the dust made from your loved ones, wash over you, as your partner leans in to share a first and only kiss on the torn mattress you found, spied upon by a patient cat who hopes to use you for the current night's bed and/or dinner. Why, it's practically a David Bowie song.
This shirt was designed by: Shirt.Woot member killopo, whose Autumn Breeze also placed third in Derby #9. If he were currently in junior high, this sort of thing would get him sent to the office and put on medication to correct his dangerous tendencies.
Wear this shirt: to a party on the night you know the whole world will come crashing down. But wear it under a sweater or something so that when everyone else is all dirty you'll look awesome climbing over the rubble in the hazy sunrise. And put a few extra pairs of socks in your bag, you'll thank me when you have dry socks after three days of walking.
Don't wear this shirt: to Easter services at the local church. I mean, honestly. Show a little respect and put on a coat and tie. Don't slouch. If you're good maybe we'll stop at McDonalds after. This shirt tells the world: "I probably have a cigarette if you really need to bum one."
(1) Woot Cellars Polyphemus Sonoma Red Blend 2005 1.5L
Description: (click show to see it)
CRASH! HOWL! SLURP!
An abomination stalks the land, single of eye and sophisticated of
palate! Cower, puny human, before Polyphemus, a cyclopean monstrosity
lurching forth from the bowels of Sonoma County!
Born of a
profane union between Barbera, Syrah, Sangiovese, and Merlot, this
Magnum-sized, vino-crazed behemoth knows but one desire: to destroy! To
destroy your preconceptions about red blends, and stomp the walls of
your sales resistance into dust! Woot Cellars dared to shackle the
beast, but it would not be tamed!
Run, lest its unholy
aromas of raspberry and spice scald your nostrils! Flee, that you may
escape the heavy tread of its bestial blackberry, black pepper, and
anise flavors! When Polyphemus sticks out his pinky to drink, entire
villages are reduced to ruins! Polyphemus is the third offering from
Woot Cellars...will it be your LAST?
