  • Am proud owner of BtVS Season 6 DVDs, bringing my Jossverse collection to completeness except for A:ts Season 5, which of course isn't out anywhere yet. (Angel Seasons 3 and 4 and Buffy Season 7 came to me in region-free format from Hong Kong and China, respectively, via the magic of EBay. Yes, I know A:ts 3 is out over here; 3 and 4 were being sold as one lot, so I bought them both.)

  • Like wolfling, I have the insane desire to recut every piece of vid footage I've ever done, nownownownownow, forget what I'm actually working on because the old ones must have DVD quality NOW. Like wolfling, I have so far resisted said urge.

  • Speaking of wolfling, her site is now updated with all thus-far-released chapters of Of Old Mystics: Curtain's Fall, and her Ethan Ficathon Fic.

  • Speaking of zortified -- I was! Keep up with the conversation here! -- her fic website's been moved by the lovely perian to a new and more bandwidth-friendly address: http://gila.fakingsanity.net. My links are updated; are yours?

  • Am proud owner of new 160 gb external hard drive, magic of EBay ($119 including shipping!), yaddayadda, winging its way, soforth, will be here soon so I can CRAM IT FULL OF VIDS! move my Premiere and source files off my PC, and rip better source in general, now that I'll have room to store it. In other words, cram it full of vids.

  • Shut up.

  • Off to visit my mother (I have no cute fandom-but-not name for her; "MadMom" doesn't quite come over well when one's mum actually is schizophrenic, and MomP looks like a muppet sound effect.) tomorrow - er, today - thus I'll be offline for most of the day; probably showing up late in the evening, unless we end up hitting the drive-in.

  • *checks listings*
    1. Nope because maeyan won't watch it. 2. Nope because I won't watch it, due to [plot thing I'm spoiled about] 3. Hell, no. 4. Fuck no. 5. Awww, yeeaahhhh... 6. Not under pain of torture. 7. I'd watch; maeyan might be convinced to. 8. Uh, no. Buttshots aside, I am not going to watch a major cockup of the Iliad with someone who majored in classical archaeology. It's a small rental car; the shouting would hurt my ears.

  • Canada Dry is the Best Ginger Ale Ever. I've had an open can in the fridge for three days now and it still hadn't lost its fizz.

We were thinking about going to see Mean Girls as well. We already saw Troy and yeah I aleady reviewed it in my LJ. Bleh.

I am so jealous of you and your 160 GB.

We ended up seeing Shrek 2. Not at the drive-in, but when we took my mum and stepfather out. (They, however, saw Troy.)

You do realise that with all your source and the 160 gb thing, you're going to become my vid crack clip suppilier for anything I don't have in dvd quality, right?

Err, not that you haven't already been, but now I won't feel guilty about asking. ;)

Hey, as long as you don't want dvd-quality clips instantly -- since hd-space and dvds aside, I'm still on dialup -- not seeing this as a hardship. *g* You can always be my crack[edverse, so as to spare Lori's bandwidth] dealer for some of the high-quality S5 files, now that I'll have portable storage that's big enough to hold those files.

• Do the regionfree discs have all the packaging, etc as the US versions or are they just copies? Are the DVDs you can get off ebay really good? I'm eyeing a dvd version of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead but over here I can't see that it was ever released as a dvd and I don;t want to get some jumpy bumpy rip off - on Joss-stuff or Shakepearean fan fic.

• Have you considered Momess?

• Canada Dry is the Bomb. I'm going to add it to my interests right now.

As far as I can tell they're originals, though the packaging is different -- instead of the fold-out thing with a place for every DVD, it's basically a box whose top opens, with a sort of magnetic closure along the side. Has all the copyright statements on both the packaging and the DVDs. Different pics (sometimes so different as to be from the wrong season) and a bit of Engrish here and there on the packaging, but the dvds seem legit. They're 8-dvd sets instead of 6, though.

Momess...sounds like she's been convicetd for committing motherhood!

*blink*

19 others have it as an interest too.

I think we need t-shirts.

Mmmm...160 gb of storage. I ended up buying an internal one of those and naming it my "Vid drive" - all I have on it is source and vidding programs and it's wonderful.

(PS - I've friended you so if I start popping up 'round here that's why. Heh.)
