first time trying to burn to bluray?

AVI is just a container format, so whether or not you can burn it to a bluray without reencoding depends on the actual codec used. H.262, H.264, and VC-1 are supported without transcoding. H.265 or other codecs aren’t. If it’s a compatible codec, you can use something like tsMuxeR to get it into the proper m2ts format output it to blu ray without losing any quality.

You can also just try burning the AVI files to a Blu-ray data disk, as many players have a wide variety of formats that they can play from a BD-ROM disk, but check your player’s manual to see what they support.

ROTJ is the best Star Wars film... discuss!

As a kid, RotJ was my favorite of the bunch. I loved the wide variety of scenery and locations, I loved the speeder bike chase, I loved the Eewoks and Jabba as completely new takes on aliens that I hadn’t seen before, and I loved badass jedi Luke. As I got older, I started to appreciate how subtly funny ESB really was and it became my favorite, but RotJ still holds a special place in my heart.

John Williams 85th - BBC Radio 2

Very nice. I have fond memories of seeing Williams conduct at the Hollywood Bowl as a kid, and it’s amazing that he’s still at the top of his game (one only needs to compare the scores of Force Awakens to Rogue One to see how true this is).

This concert is an interesting selection of his music, and I loved the presenter’s introduction to the piece from “Lincoln”. I was a bit weirded out hearing “Somewhere in my Memory” with an adult choir instead of a children’s choir though.
