That guy you've been arguing with in the Smackdown forum? He might be just be Rush Limbaugh.

Okay, so he probably isn't. But apparently the conservative talk show host is a high-def disc early adopter -- and a dual-format supporting one, at that.

According to a transcript from Limbaugh's Wednesday radio show, the host says he has both an HD DVD player and a Blu-ray player, and that whenever a new release comes out, "I just go get 'em. I have stacks of them I haven't seen yet."

Limbaugh's remarks came as a preamble to a seemingly off-the-cuff endorsement of the German film 'The Lives of Others' (a recent Blu-ray release), which he hailed as "the kind of movie that Hollywood ought to be making."

Limbaugh went on to call the film "one of the most accurate portrayals of life under socialism and communism that you'll see."

Yes, it's a slow news day here at High-Def Digest...
