"searching by "architecture"+"dvd", and going only by title, as there were no reviews or product description for this product, i thought this dvd was about architecture, which i think is a reasonable assumption. well, i was dead wrong. there's some weird spacey music at the beginning, for quite some time. the next scene is a studio audience watching two chairs and a table on stage. ya wait a while and then a guy comes out and sits down with some papers. you wait a while longer and then another guy comes out, as if he's going to be interviewed by the first guy. the first guy shuffles his papers and looks busy for a while longer and then asks a question. but just as the second guy starts to answer, the first guy continues his question to make it longer. this goes on for another while longer, followed by some interview/dialog. at this point, i couldn't take it any more and skipped ahead, but it looked like it continued the same way throughout this short dvd.
none of the dialog had anything to do with architecture. there were no pictures or video clips of buildings or architecture techniques or what to expect in the field. this dvd had nothing to do with architecture. it was just some weird, college-style something. i'd like to say it was just obscure humor, but i can't, it was just too obscure for even that. i like weird and unusual humor, but this wasn't even in the same time zone. i obviously did not understand this dvd at all. if someone else does, please explain it to me, because i totally missed the point."
