2entertain responds to an inquiry
about the Doctor Who Season 3 R1 commentary issue. Apparently the commentary couldn't be 'cleared," whatever that means. Rather than the comments about the (fictional) death of the US President and calling Bush an idiot, now people are thinking that maybe the rendition of "Dueling Banjos" couldn't be cleared :-P
Honestly, neither reason makes sense, but whatever. I give up. I've gotten a copy of it and that'll have to do because there's no way I'm paying for the R2 box set (as much as I might want it... Saxon lithograph!!).Edit:
Just read an update in a comm. The official reason as posted in the Doctor Who DVD FAQ
is that they couldn't clear the bits of music the actors start singing and humming in time for the release. Uhm. WTF. Wouldn't someone have known that they needed to clear it? And what are you using to communicate with the people you need to? A freakin' carrier pigeon?! These DVDs cost a lot.. I mean.. a lot
. Nearly twice what I'd pay for a full 21 episode season of any show from the US. Don't tell me that some of that fee can't cover music licensing -- for hummed songs, so less.
After work today, I headed to the mall with a bit of a list. Looked for corsets in Charlotte Russe and H&M -- no luck in either. At Best Buy, the only Eddie Izzard DVD they had was Definite Article
(which was fine, 'cause I don't have it), but I had to scrounge the shelves because it was put in the wrong spot. Besides that, I also picked up MirrorMask
(yay!!), Mogwai's Mr. Beast
and a Godspeed You! Black Emperor album that was causing the cashier some grief as it would not ring up. All because I wanted to use a 10% off coupon :-P
There was also a $10 Build a Bear certificate burning a hole in my pocket, so.... yes. Wandered in there and got myself a new bear! The new 2007 Winter bear, actually. And.. I named it Amezri. yes. It's Amezri Bear. Shut it!( Amezri bear! )
And now for today's casual goth loli outfit. I think it's probably a little bit punk loli? Hm. I dunno. I really liked it and I got a few compliments on it.( Friday's outfit: casual punk loli? )
? Pretty good. This show has really sucky writing, but it sort of hits all the right genre buttons to keep me interested. However... fakest. sunset. EVAR.
? Not too shabby. Interesting character returns. Sam? I actually don't hate her like I did on SG-1. Go figure.
