Welcome to Britt5091: Origins, where I dig up old blog posts I used to write for IGN’s community under the username Britt5091. Some posts may make you giggle, some may make your eyes bleed, and some may make you stroke your beard in a pensive manner. All you need to know is that these posts, no matter how terrible some of them may be, ultimately lead to everything I do now.

All you gamers and tech savvies out there, I’m turning to you for advice!
In an effort to pimp my gaming lifestyle to the maxxx, I’ve been frantically seraching high and low for an HDTV.
Currently I’m using a big ol’ honkin 27 inch brick I bought with my first paycheck when I was 16. It works fine, and that’s great, but c’mon now. Every time I see Mr. Snake and/or Mr. Phoenix parade around in the high def world it gives me eyegasms and I can’t take it anymore.
I have the killer surround sound. I have the systems. I have the games. I have a sleek, sexy, packaged entertainment stand I can’t use because my current TV would crush it.
Bottom line: I NEED A NEW TV!
Although I’ve done some research, I’m getting conflicting information from employees everywhere, and none of which I’ve spoken are gamers. The stand I have holds up to a 46″.
So, this is where I turn to ya’ll ^_^. I know practically diddly about HDTVs and the sort. Any advice is appreciated!
The day I brought home a 46″ HDTV from Fred Meyer was one of the best days of my LIFE! It was a display model, therefore it didn’t come in a, um, box, but a nice clerk dude helped me wheel it out <3. Man, that feels like forever ago. I think I bought it not too long after this post!
Also, -1 for spelling “searching” wrong above. =_=
