Anime DVD Tidbits

Why?: I have grown to detest all the little time-consuming hinderences to enjoying my entertainment. DVDs that have front-loaded previews are starting to annoy me, but particularly evil are some offenders that don't allow me to skip logos or previews. It is these that I am trying to avoid. I see nearly a two _minute_ load-to-menu time on Outlaw Star, and most of that is footage and blank footage, not just due to the slow branching that might be attributed to my player.

I also wanted to keep track of little tidbits that I find on DVDs, either in the animation (Duff Cola in BGC 2040) or the encoding (menu, chapter & track structure)
