I am speechless. This moment has been long rumored and yet I find myself unprepared for the excitement that I feel in seeing the cover.

This is truly outstanding news. I am so glad to see such minor cult classics get such royal treatments.

The only catch is that Kuni designed the packaging. You open up the case to find...

NOTHING! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Patience, Walt...it's on the schedule.

At least, that's what I read somewhere. It'll presumably be in its OAR (so the nose gag can be fully appreciated, among other things).

On "UHF":

I look forward to seeing if the deleted scene "Those Wacky Homos" is included. It'll probably seem tame in light of the Eminems of our modern world.

This movie is pure genius. Worth it alone for the "Conan the Librarian" and "Gandhi II" skits.
