Between work and ... well, work, I haven't had much time to post. Time to fix that with a quick rundown of interesting stuff.
- I've upgraded to the newest beta version of Movable Type, and am reporting bugs as I find them. Things might flake occasionally.
- My last JustTheDisc order included, amazingly, the 2nd Ergo Proxy soundtrack, which is about as rare as rocking horse feed. All the Geneon anime soundtracks have been officially out of print since the company went 'splody. If you see any of them, grab them — there's a lot of good music there. Since Geneon were the original licensors for Seirei no Moribito (the new licensor is MediaBlasters), that means the soundtrack discs are going to be available for that series as import-only items. I have the first one and have been meaning to pick up the second one as soon as my budget permits.
- ...and if I can scare up $150, I want one of these. For obvious reasons.
And now for some links!
- A very in-depth discussion with James Cameron at Variety about his plans for the use of 3-D in Avatar and other films. He makes an excellent point when he talks about 3-D moving past being a mere gimmick and becoming as much a part of the movie storytelling arsenal as color or sound. I also suspected 3-D would become a way to get people back in the theater, since it's something that can't be duplicated at home without difficulty.
- A nice piece in the Times about the Princeton Record Exchange, who have defied the times by keeping their stock available only in person and not on-line. I need to go by there again one of these years.
- Were changes in social evolution driven by disease?
