    Does anyone have any idea as to when the webstore is going to open? I need a few shiny metal discs to successfully maintain my tenuous grip on my psychosis.

    According to Lynch, via the latest news at Mike Dunn's LynchNet, it would be open close to February 1st.
    My wallet is bracing for it.

    I can't wait either!

    Interesting comments about the soundmix on the new FWWM disc though. What does everyone else think? I know DL and his engineer John Neff were heavily involved in remixing the soundtrack, what changes have been made?

    I too am anxiously awaiting the Lynch store grand opening. I wonder if his Early Short Films DVD is ready to go on sale as well.

    While we're on the subject, for those of you who aren't members of davidlynch.com yet, JOIN ALREADY!! If you are into David Lynch's films, it is really worth the $10/month. There are three series that will be running on the site. The first one has already been launched, and it's hilarious. Plus, David is in the chat room almost every day, to chat and answer questions. Justin Theroux (the actor who plays the director in Mulholland Drive) and composer Angelo Badalamenti pop in as well.

    The problem is the system requirements; you can't use it with NT (which I have at work) or you need a fairly recent Pentium chip (still chugging along at home just fine with a P54, thanks). Since I have no access at these requirements, it's of no use to me. I can understand Lynch wanting to have high standards, but he's cutting himself off from my money, which I'd gladly spend it on his site. [​IMG]

    The web log on davidlynch.com has an entry dated 2.5.02 announcing that the web store will open on 2.11.02, next Monday.

    I can't wait.

    David Lynch told us the other day that the store will have his Shorts DVD, with the Eraserhead DVD following shortly. He also mentioned that the documentary "I Don't Know Jack" (Nance) by Richard Green ('there is no band' guy in Mulholland Drive) might be available through his store in the future as well.

    Excellent Michael. Thanks for the info. He should put a Lynch chat transcript section up on DL.com somewhere. [​IMG]

    I can access the link to the store, where I get a "workin' on it" image. I can't imagine Lynch would limit the sale of his movies to those that pay the $10 a month. He'd lose money that way.

    All the info so far points to the store opening for "Members Only" for a week before opening to the public.

    The original idea was to give paying members a first shot at buying new stuff. I think the new CD (yes, CD) would be availble to members only for the first week, then to everyone else. Ditto for the DVD's. I don't know if they will or won't stick to that, but you don't have to be a member to buy stuff. Worst case scenario is you have to wait a week.

    Well, they are on Pacific Time so I'd assume it'd be later today, if at all.

    And from another post I read, the Eraserhead DVD won't be available right away - only the shorts.

    The David Lynch webstore is now open!

    The short films DVD ships on Feb. 18 and costs $39.94 + S&H. The disc includes: Six Men, Getting Sick, The Alphabet, The Grandmother, The Amputee, The Cowboy & The Frenchman and Lumiere.

    Eraserhead is also $39.94 + S&H, but may not ship until April 1.

    I've been trying to place an order for a while now, but it seems that the system is having some problems.

    Ouch, $40 bucks a pop. I thought these might be reasonably priced since Lynch is selling these direct, bypassing any middlemen.

    The store must really be having some problems, because now the "Working On It" screen is back. When I tried to place my order, the system could never actually see my shopping cart. I guess that's what happens when you build your online store in Flash. [​IMG]
