"Thanks again to Mr. Frezon for pitching in; a "vacation" is sorta cool. Mike, would you be willing to do the Roundup for the next 2-3 weeks? I really am blown away by what you did...it's damn near perfect! I'm proud of you. The only thing you really missed, though is the markdowns at Videotropic. Here they are:"
Tony: When you look at it that way...too funny! If only I knew what I was getting myself into!
Chris: Excellent news about the Mail-In Rebate on those BDs of Con-Air, The Rock & Crimson Tide. VERY good to know!
Scott: As long as I remember the wedding anniversary and the wife's birthday, I think I'm in good shape!
And, thanks to Mark, Travis, Gary & Christopher for the correction on the BB price of the Zodiac SE!
Was in one of my local FYE (TransWorld) stores last night killing time while the wife was shopping elsewhere and found a copy of Home Run Derby: Vol. 2 marked down from $14.99 to $0.99!!!
I figured it was mis-marked...but since I never got either volumes 2 or 3...I took it up to the register and asked the clerk if it was mis-marked and he scanned it and it came up at $0.99! Sold! Anyone else interested MAY want to give it a try at your local TransWorld store. There was a copy of HRD: Volume 1 there...but it only had the original $14.99 tag on it. Don't know how it would have scanned.
So glad BB has a competitive price for ZODIAC on HD-DVD. After waiting 2 weeks for my Amazon pre-order of HD-DVD BLADE RUNNER to arrive, I'm gonna hold off pre-orders for a while.
MarkBirds, I would not recommend SUNSHINE as a blind buy (though I'm sure it looks amazing in BD). I'm a fan of Boyle, Garland, the cast, the influences...and yet it didn't work for me. Definitely worth a watch, though.
I almost forgot that you weren't the one that started the Round-up! You and Patrick have certainly made it your own. It's usually the first stop I make on Sunday morning! I hereby nominate you for a second term. FOUR MORE YEARS!
Dave still alive? I thought you permently have the Weekly Roundup these days? Also after loging in for the first time in a year, I checked my last post, which was "Weekly Roundup of October of 2006" by Mike Frezon.
I noticed him over at TVshowsonDVD.com, as I usually check that site every once in a while to see see what got announced. While I have been buying dvds in this past year, it not nearly as many when I first joined this board. Still, with a HD-TV coming soon, I might be changing that.
