With such a storied lineage, I have to ask you: When did you first become interested in gear and electronics? Well, despite growing up in a family famous for the invention of the 8-track player, unfortunately, I was not filled in by any of my relatives on the mysterious world of electronics.

Man, do I loooooove Record Store Day.

If there’s one thing to take away from this past Saturday’s RSD, it’s that there’s a strong and rabid group of record buyers willing to wait in line for hours and hours to willingly spend lots and lots of dough on physical product — and that’s incredibly encouraging in light of what many see as an ever-shrinking tactile music marketplace.

Bottom line: Give them a reason, and they will come. And spend.

“Winter is coming.” That ominous mantra hangs heavy over the full arc of the inaugural 10-episode season of Game of Thrones, one of the best-looking and best-sounding shows on broadcast cable TV.

The opening-credits sequence for Dexter is an absolute wonder to watch and listen to on DVD, wouldn't you agree?Oh, yes. Those opening credits are brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. They're creepy; they're cool. Everything that the show is gets encapsulated in those opening credits. A certain genius was at work when they were put together.

I have a ritual when it comes to watching The Sopranos. Before the debut of each season, I rewatch every prior season on DVD so that I'm immersed in all the nuances that remind me why it's one of the best TV shows ever.

We talked to Steven Wilson a couple of weeks ago about his forthcoming - and groundbreaking - new Blu-ray release, Grace for Drowning. Fittingly, we offer you, the Sound + Vision and Steven Wilson faithful, an EXCLUSIVE look at the aptly titled "Track One," the third song on Disc 2.

What do you think of downloading? In the days when I grew up, you really had to work hard just to find music.
