Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Curb Your Enthusiasm
« on: January 8, 2004, 06:23 PM »
I've always been interested in this show, but unfortunately, I've only caught part of one episode, since I don't keep up with TV/HBO enough to know when exactly it's going to be on every week.

However, I really liked the part of the episode I saw, and as far as Larry David and Seinfeld goes, well, I'm one of "those" who believes the show went to sh!t, relatively-speaking, when he left during the sixth or seventh season, whenever it was.

So, this will be a perfect time to mention that Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete First Season is coming to DVD next Tuesday, January 13th, as a matter of fact.  How convenient!  :)

Amazon: $27.99 with free shipping

Believe it's $29.99 at DDD, and I think Best Buy and Circuit are going to have it for that price as well.

I'd much rather have this, and watch it on my schedule, than whenever HBO wants me to watch it (I'm TIVO-less, too).

And some little-known Larry David/Seinfeld trivia for you:  

He was the voice of George Steinbrenner.

Don't know if this will be of interest to anyone else here, but if any of you guys are interested in the new Scarface: 20th Anniversary disc, there's a new 2-pack out with that and The Fast and the Furious: Tricked Out Edition, for less than twenty bucks total.

Deep Discount's got it listed here for $19.20:


I've also heard of other B & M stores like K-Mart and Costco having this 2-pack, as well, for right around the same price (think I even heard it was $16.99 at Costco).

Now, personally, I have absolutely zero interest in the Fast and Furious disc, but given that the lowest price I've seen Scarface for has been $19.99, I'll be happy to order this thing for Tony Montana, and Ebay F & F for whatever.  Pretty good deal.

Anyway, go nuts, kids.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Distribution of Clone Wars Wave 3
« on: January 5, 2004, 05:27 PM »
I've seen this wave a total of one time, at an Oklahoma City Wal-Mart about a month ago.  Bought my two Clone Troopers, left the Kits and Saesees, and haven't seen 'em again since.

Funny, the Wal-Mart near me (not the same store) just stocked a ton of the (I guess) Wave 2 figures--Mace, Obi-Wan, Durge, and Asajj.

For some reason, I have a feeling that this new Clone Trooper isn't just a one-and-done figure.  I think we'll be seeing a lot of them, in all kinds of different configurations, over the next two or three years.

Me too.  

Been listening to it all day yesterday and today.  Just bought it (again) yesterday, actually, after having my first copy stolen several years ago.

OK, how about this 8)

Golden Globe Nominated Pearl Jam is on the Soundtrack

 :-X :-X

(Actually, to contribute something worthwhile, I am planning to go see the movie this weekend with my dad, for some much-needed father/son bonding, which is apparently "the point" of the film.  

Afterward, we're probably going to cry, and then I'm going to ask him for a bunch of money.)

Hey, I did apologize, didn't I?

Hey, gotta tap into my inner Hung Solow, crappy, sexually-oriented bag of "jokes" every once in a while. . .

Thanks, OCB.  Hope my "questionable language" hasn't offended any of you fellas.

White played like absolute Horse Manure, that was awful.  Sorry Virex...

Yeah, he sucked, two interceptions.  And the offensive line sucked a little bit too, way too much pressure on him.  I was thinking, in the second half, they almost should have put in their second-string QB to get some momentum going.  How crazy would that have been, to bench a Heisman winner?

Defense can't do it all, guys. . .

hey at least Texas still sucks though right???

That almost implies that there have been times where Texas hasn't sucked, which, of course, is not the case.

We'll always have 65-13.  We'll always have 65-13. . .

Well, I can go ahead and scratch Rebel Strike off my GameCube want list.  Picked it up just now at a Wal-Mart, who price-matched* Best Buy for $29.99.

*Yeah, they price-matched it alright, but not without a hassle.  Since the regular price for it at Wal-Mart is $49.99, that's a $20 difference, which apparently is too large a difference for the regular cashiers to do on their own.  So she called over a supervisor or something for a manual override, who, when she saw the Best Buy ad, very nearly refused to do it, due to the kind of-semi-not really confusing ad.  Rebel Strike is pictured in a box along with two Sonic the Hedgehog games.  At the top of the box, above all three games, the print reads "TRIPLE REWARD ZONE POINTS with these 2 SONIC games".  

So the supervisor saw that, and thought that Rebel Strike was only $29.99 if you bought the other two Sonic games (which, incidentally, don't even come out until Thursday).  I told her no--that Rebel Strike has nothing to do with the Sonic games, and after a few anxious moments, she finally caved, due in part, I'm sure, to the line that was growing behind me.  

So, anyway, if any of you are planning to take the Best Buy ad to Wal-Mart to price match, be prepared for maybe a little bit of grief. . .

Well, the way the bowl season has gone for me so far this year, I should probably be rooting for the Tigers. . .

(I do want to honestly say that besides the two Big XII schools who have won their games, the only other team I was going for who wound up winning was. . .  The Minnesota Golden Gophers.  And yes, I was rooting for them simply because they're your team, Scott.  

I love you.   :-* )

There have been rumors about a new Blade Runner disc for, literally, years.  At least two or three.  Apparently, it's tied up in "legal issues".  However, Ridley Scott is a "friend of the format" (see Alien Quadrilogy, Black Hawk Down (3-disc set), Gladiator, Legend: Ultimate Edition, etc.), and something will come out eventually, and it will be great, the be-all, end-all, for Blade Runner fans, I'm sure.

Well, I just found a new site for DVD news, DavisDVD, and they had just put up a tidbit about the holdup with the Blade Runner set just recently:

We may finally have some reason why Warner Bros' long-planned Blade Runner Special Edition has been put on an indefinite delay. An article in this past Sunday's New York Times Art and Leisure section focused on why some classic films can be delayed from ever reaching the DVD market. In some cases, it may be something as simple as film elements being stored in mismarked film cans. Other times, it may be that because of constant corporate mergers and turnarounds, many studios aren't always sure of what they own. Often, however, it's money squabbles and legal hurdles which can put the kibosh on new disc releases. And unfortunately, this seems to be the case with Ridley Scott's futuristic masterpiece.

The ownership issues with Blade Runner are long and confusing, so I'll spare you the ugly details. But, in a nutshell, Warner Bros only has theatrical and home video distribution rights for the 1992 "Director's Cut" version of the film. The elaborate three-disc special edition plans on including this version, as well as the original 1982 cut along with a new definitive Director's Recut. But producer Jerry Perenchio, who apparently controls the original negative, hasn't signed off on any of this. And until some agreement can be reached, we'll just have to keep waiting for our ultimate BR box set.

Looks like "Jerry Perenchio" is the dickhead to blame for the three-year delay here. . .   :-\

I feel a little silly about letting this thread lapse onto the second page, and so, while I'm not listening to anything right now, really, here's what I've been listening to lately:

Loose Fur, self-titled  (a side project of Jeff Tweedy's)

Rather embarrassed over this one, given the amount of teasing I've put on Creed Boy about his favorite band.  However, in my defense, I will say that I got this for Christmas a week ago, so it's still new to me.

I will say, though, as I've mentioned before--they only used like 58 minutes of space on Disc 2, and that's including the extra four minutes or whatever between "Bee Girl" and "4/20/02".  No reason they couldn't have fit at least another two or three tracks onto it.  Oh well.

(Semi-interesting Virex trivia:  I was on the phone, on hold, for the Rockline radio show in '93 with Jeff Ament and Eddie Vedder, waiting to ask my question, when they did "Bee Girl".  Unfortunately, they ran out of time before they could get to me, but it was neat to be able to hear those guys on my phone, several seconds before I heard the same stuff on my radio I had on. . .)
