Amazon is again having a big sale on various Warner Bros. TV boxed sets, after posting the sale for about four hours yesterday then changing their minds. There are some very good shows there for $20-30 a pop, including Gilmore Girls, West Wing and the first, not yet annoying, season of Without a Trace. There's no end date for the sale listed, unfortunately, but so far they've been less trigger-happy then yesterday, at least.

And Deep Discount is running the same sale, only with their usual free shipping on all orders, instead of just on over-$25 orders like Amazon, plus a wider variety of shows. So if you really need the first season of Full House, now's your chance.

And, all year long, Warner's been commemorating fifty years of WB TV blah blah blah with a rebate, in which buying two qualifying DVD sets will get you $10 back, three will get you $20, and so on. Many of the shows included in this sale qualify, happily. So if you were to, say, buy West Wing S1 and 2 for yourself, and Lois and Clark S1 and Smallville S1 for me, you'd get $40 back and my DVDs would be free. Kidding! Unless you wanted to...

Looks like the release date for the complete, uncut, amazingly fabulous Fellowship of the Ring score (eeeeeEEEEEeeeeeeeEEEEEEeeeee!) has been pushed back a week to December 6th. Aw, no fair, seven whole more days to wait! Wait, self, shut up, it's still amazingly fabulous. Still, I'm a bit surprised that Amazon has discounted it so little. Six bucks off list price seems oddly low for them. And CD Universe has it much cheaper (though I've never bought from them, so I don't know).

And a month before that arrives, on November 8th, we get an actual CD release of the Firefly soundtrack. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! One of my most wanted scores in a format that doesn't require me to have DSL or a non-evil computer! Happy happy joy joy! If only I could celebrate by listening to my Serenity score, which was supposedly shipped nearly three weeks ago. It's been interesting to follow its wanderings on Amazon's tracker thingie. Shipped from Kentucky, off to Ohio, then to Pennsylvania, then, no, not to New York where I live, then to Washington DC, then back to Pennsylvania... why did I preorder again? And to think I was so happy that it shipped four days before its release. Maybe tomorrow. Yeah, I'm sure it'll get here tomorrow (grrrrrrr). Anyway, Firefly score! Squeeeee!

Speaking of most wanted things, my list of "DVDs I would sell state secrets for" is going down by two, possibly three. Glee! Magnificent Seven S1 in December (same day as FotR! Yay, poverty!), rumors of Brisco County next year (please please please...), and, no doubt to the relief of anyone who's had to listen to me whine and whine about the fact that R2 has had a special edition for years and R1 has had only had the barest of barebones releases, a Dead Poets Society SE in January. At last. And I even have a Neil Perry icon to celebrate. Er, not that I have it loaded yet, since I'm still pondering the "text or no text?" issue. But I will eventually have a Neil icon and an SE DVD, so yay for that.

Last but not least, from Doug Fake's blog at Intrada's site: "I'm happy there's some buzz around SILVERADO. It's costing a small fortune but we're doing it right so be patient. It's two discs, it runs almost ninety minutes, it's the first release from Sony's actual 24-track masters. We made brand new state-of-the-art mixes over at Fox where the sessions originally took place, we had the original scoring crew present, cool stuff like this. With thanks to our friend Bruce, plus all those folks at Sony and Fox, we're preparing the whole kit and kaboodle. Every note Bruce recorded for this masterpiece. It's truly been exciting!

And the sound is - well, in one word - absolutely stunning! Okay, that's two words. One for each disc!"

Yet again, yaaaaay! But for the love of little apples, please let this come out next year. I have no more spare plasma to sell.

I hate waiting, but omg, finally almost here. I wish it were cheaper, but I really MUST have this.

Wayhey, it's the Lady of Wales! Who is no longer homeless! Yaaaaaay! *flails wildly* It's so nice to see you!

Ugh, don't I know it. All of a sudden there's this logjam of wonderful, pricey things that I need, I really do. I'd be such a lousy Buddhist. But... the complete score! At last, within our grasp (almost)! So much glee! *vbg*

I'm sacrifice-prepping the volcano. Good thing the maidens and warriors agree that it's a worthy cause. ;)

Ack, I can't believe I never replied to this! I suck, yo.

Have you gotten your copy of the FOTR score yet? I'll have to wait a bit to buy one, but I'm so curious to see what you think of it!

Btw, I LOVE the Maid Marian icon :)

I keep waiting for deepdiscountcd.com to start offering the complete score, but no luck so far. If they don't hurry up, CD Universe it is.

Yeah, I thought about emailing DDCD to ask about it, but I wrote to them last week to ask about the Firefly CD and I still haven't heard back. They're usually much quicker, so I don't know what's up. Frustrating.

It's up at DDCD at last, but for $50, so I'm going to go ahead and use CD Universe, since they're so much cheaper.
