here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
Today, I received this email from Netflix regarding a significant rate increase:
We are separating unlimited DVDs by mail and unlimited streaming into two separate plans to better reflect the costs of each. Now our members have a choice: a streaming only plan, a DVD only plan, or both.
Your current $9.99 a month membership for unlimited streaming and unlimited DVDs will be split into 2 distinct plans:
Plan 1: Unlimited Streaming (no DVDs) for $7.99 a month
Plan 2: Unlimited DVDs, 1 out at-a-time (no streaming) for $7.99 a month
Your price for getting both of these plans will be $15.98 a month ($7.99 + $7.99). You don't need to do anything to continue your memberships for both unlimited streaming and unlimited DVDs.
These prices will start for charges on or after September 1, 2011.
You can easily change or cancel your unlimited streaming plan, unlimited DVD plan, or both, by going to the Plan Change page in Your Account.
We realize you have many choices for home entertainment, and we thank you for your business. As always, if you have questions, please feel free to call us at 1-888-357-1516.

A nearly 60% increase, WTF?!
I'm sure most people stream instead of get dvd's but not all titles are available for streaming.
Are any of you guys going to switch to one of the new plans or pay the increase for both?
So this may have been posted a while ago (since this episode came out in 2005) but I just recently got netflix and began watching shows that i've been meaning to watch, one of those shows was Weeds from showtime and near the end of season 1 (episode 8 to be exact) and Nancy meets this single father and whatever and they're asking each other questions and one was "What's you favorite fight song?" to which they both replied "The Victors" and began belting out the fight song.
I know this might be a little "cool story, bro" but i got a kick out of it. Also, Weeds is an awesome show
I dunno. This looks pretty funny. Wouldn't it be cool to go back in time to 1986?
I like the idea of combining Twitter with Viagra: Twittagra!
