are you sure the LOTR dvd is going to be released twice in a few month time period? why not just wait and release one deluxe version?

03-20-2002, 01:25 AM
Happy belated b-day Wolfwood :) I'm sorry about your wedding getting between AOTC and TTT :D :D :D

billfremore, where are you seeing KITH ? They're doing a show near me next month but I just can't go. I want to, but I have too much planned already. I've heard they are very good in concert. Enjoy!

derek, Rollo's LOTR disc info should be accurate. I've seen reports of a late summer "bare bones" (though I doubt it will be an actual bare bones release) . . . and then the super set with tons of extra footage in the fall. Aug/Nov sounds pretty plausible. Personally, I'll just wait for the second release and maybe rent the first release to see it again this summer. :)

Nothing. I neither dwell in the past or look to the future. I live for today and see what it brings by the hour.

Everything is subject to availability and change without prior notice. Even life itself. be still my children and let not the chattels of the world hang round your gonads and weigh you down in the quagmire of confusion that is the 21st century.

I have spoken all I can tell. That will be $100 dollars thank you, no change given. Please call again...... :crazed:
