I just want someone to say something--anything--about my Carrot Top joke above.

I went to too much trouble finding decent pictures of the other two redheads, to have that joke go by like a fart in the wind, with no commentary. . .

Yeah, so the other night, I fell asleep listening to a Radiohead MP3 disc--something like six hours' worth--and one of the dreams I had involved me, wearing only a bath towel, eating dinner in a really fancy restaurant in Venice, Italy, while everybody else was dressed in tuxedos and expensive dresses.  I ordered some tacos, because they were the cheapest, but then didn't have any money, so Dad wound up paying for it.  

Now, whether or not the Radiohead playing in the background had anything to do with that dream, I'll never know.

So, watch what you listen to before you fall asleep, kids. . .

Okay, gang - The Digital Bits has just started posting their review of the Quadrilogy set.

So far, they've reviewed the first two discs - Alien and the Alien extras disc:

Looks like they're going to stagger out their reviews of the rest of the set, in the hours/days to come--their site has been really busy today, for obvious reasons.

Amazing stuff. . .

30 second snippets of all of the songs are here for the Pearl Jam Lost Dogs CD...

Eh...I guess there is a reason a lot of these songs were not on the regular CD's.  Some of the stuff is cool but some of it needs to grow on me a bit :-*

Heard they took "Angel" off the set--and what's worse, they didn't put anything else in it's place.  Too bad--that was a cool song, and one of the only nine or so songs that I was familiar with before.

Eh, record companies suck.

Anyway, I've been listening to a little of Sarah McLachlan's Surfacing today, along with Van Morrison's Astral Weeks and Moondance a little earlier.

Good stuff, all around. . .

Pearl Jam fans can see a trailer of the Live at the Garden DVD here

(checking the link)

Oh, so that's what the deal is with the two covers--one's a slipcase!  In a thread about the DVD over at DVD Talk, people were confused as to which was the official cover.  That's cool.

Should be a nice set. . .

From USA Today:

Get a box of 'Alien' films on DVD

By Mike Snider, USA TODAY

The Alien invasion will go beyond theaters when a monstrous nine-disc Alien Quadrilogy box set arrives Dec. 2.
Over the weekend, Alien returned to theaters on 347 screens, bringing in a modest $1.04 million. The re-release was designed to draw attention to next month's DVD release of the original movie that made Sigourney Weaver a star in 1979, plus its three sequels.

The $99.98 set includes versions of the four Alien films not yet seen on home video:

•Alien can be watched in the original version or the new director's cut now playing in theaters.

• The 1986 sequel, Aliens, is available on DVD for the first time, with director James Cameron's special edition as well.

• Alien 3 (1992) has more than 30 minutes of new footage.

•Alien Resurrection (1997) has alternate opening and ending scenes.

Each movie also has its own accompanying disc of extras, and the ninth disc has a new interview with Alien director Ridley Scott. Scott and Weaver, who starred in all four films, also take part in a new commentary on the film.

One creature feature sure to pique fan interest: A multi-angle study of the "chest-buster scene," in which a hatched alien emerges from the stomach of Kane (John Hurt).

"Some of the background anecdotes and information about the shoot and setup — particularly (actress) Veronica Cartwright's reflection on the shock of getting soaked in jets of blood — are the type of thing that really sets DVD apart as an entertainment format," says Peter Staddon, senior vice president of marketing for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In total, the Alien Quadrilogy set has about 45 hours of previously unseen material. On Jan. 6, the films will be available individually on DVD for $26.98 each.

Anyone catch that last part?

Now--I'm a sucker for the box-set-type stuff, so I'll still definitely be getting the Quadrilogy, but that's great news for those people who only wanted to get the first one and/or two.

And--what great, if not devious, marketing that is.  Release the box before Christmas, and then release them all separately afterward.  That's funny.

More later. . .

Big news today from The Digital Bits - apparently, Fox is getting set to announce the Alien Quadrilogy set for a December 2nd release.

Looks like everything's been ready to go for a while; they just wanted to wait until Alien was theatrically re-released before they announced the DVD set.

Anyway--I'll go ahead and update the list now.

Speaking of which--do any of you guys bother to check the list on the first page anymore?  Or do you just check the latest posts in the thread?

Just curious. . .

How about a little Resident Evil?  The multi-talented Milla Jovovich, anyone?

Methinks you did some cautious editing before posting...

Well, he was stroking something, but it wasn't his keyboard, I'll bet!   :o ;D

. . .I'm sorry.

And I was wondering if I'd get any mentions of Shawshank with that pic of Raquel.

Who were some of the other girls?  Haven't watched the movie in a while.

I think I remember Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe, but I could be wrong on MM. . .

Red-headed hotties:

Nicole Kidman

Angie Everhart

Carrot Top

Come on--nobody wants to comment on this?

No "you silly, silly Virex" comments, to be followed by a smiley of some sort?

Not even a "dude, you suck--that's gross"???

 ??? ::) :-[ :-\ :'( :( >:( :o

Beatles Anthology Volume One Disc One
Beatles Anthology Volume One Disc Two
Beatles Anthology Volume Two Disc One
Beatles Anthology Volume Two Disc Two
Beatles Anthology Volume Three Disc One
Beatles Anthology Volume Three Disc Two

Reminds me of somethin' else that's coming out here in a few weeks:

This is basically Let It Be as it was originally recorded, without all the crap that Phil Spector added in later.  Well, kinda.  They've also changed around the track-listing a little bit--gone are "Dig It" and "Maggie Mae", and added is "Don't Let Me Down".

Here's the track-listing for the new one:

1. Get Back        
2. Dig A Pony        
3. For You Blue        
4. The Long And Winding Road        
5. Two Of Us        
6. I've Got A Feeling        
7. One After 909        
8. Don't Let Me Down        
9. I Me Mine        
10. Across The Universe        
11. Let It Be  

(And here's the original track-listing, for comparision:)

1. Two of Us
2. Dig a Pony
3. Across the Universe
4. I Me Mine
5. Dig It
6. Let It Be
7. Maggie Mae
8. I've Got a Feeling
9. One After 909
10. The Long and Winding Road
11. For You Blue
12. Get Back

And there's also a bonus disc included--I believe it's a DVD of vintage studio stuff--performances, recording, interviews, stuff like that--have no idea how long it is or anything.

Releases November 18.

Amazon page - $12.98

Between this and the DVD Anthology set released earlier this year, it's been a pretty good year for Beatles fans.

Lost Dogs'll be cool, as will the Live at the Garden DVD set, also due that day.  PJ overload.

Next week's got the live Coldplay DVD/CD set, which should be great, as they're a great live band, in my opinion.

We'll also get, as I mentioned in the hotties thread, Afterglow, the first new album from Sarah McLachlan since 1997's Surfacing.  You can listen to it in it's entirety for free at right now, if you'd like.

There's also a box set of Johnny Cash material taken from all of his American Recordings sessions, over the past nine or ten years.  Five discs total, I believe--four discs of rarities, and one disc of "the best of" the four AR albums.

Comes out November 25th, and should be a fitting tribute to the Man in Black. . .

What's the latest, Matt?

It seems like things are finally starting to get settled down out there, thankfully.

You guys have been in my thoughts since it all started. . .
