Tini. Yup. Only a different cover. A Better cover.

That is all I will say.

So what's the deal with "Yahoo Screen" for "Community"? It is free or subscription based like Netflix / Hulu Plus?

So the Amazon DVD of Gargoyles S2V2 is the same as the previously released version (yellow cover) just in different packaging?

At the very least, it seems like stack discs at least don't have the same scratch risk that other cost cutting methods have until getting a replacement case (referring the envelope casing).

Antiyonder: They're stacked again man ¬_¬

Already got a substitute packaging myself, lol.

Antiyonder here from the library.

Now I did already get the Gargoyles Season 2 V2 set from 2013 on the ebay shop, but for those getting the current release:

Are the discs stacked upon each other like the previous release of the set or do the discs have their own single holder? Just asking as I'm looking to get the Goof Troop sets (which also are 3 discs) down the line.


According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, today is the anniversary of the first Mickey Mouse newspaper comic strip, in 1930. Fantagraphics Books has been reprinting a lot of the old Mickey Mouse newspaper comics from the 30's, and they're worth reading; a lot of them are adventure stories making Mickey into an action hero - and at times with some dark moments that you wouldn't expect from mainstream Disney. (In one early story, the villains - Pegleg Pete and his partner, a now all-but-forgotten crooked lawyer named Sylvester Shyster, described as so sneaky that he'd stab you in the back and then charge you with carrying a concealed weapon - try to force Minnie Mouse to turn over an inheritance to them by threatening to hang Mickey, and actually show her him on the gallows - it's actually a dummy, since Mickey had escaped them, but Minnie doesn't know that.) And with several neat characters, such as a mechanic who serves as a mentor to Mickey when he's training to become a mail pilot - a gloomy, pessimistic, but able fellow (he won't become a pilot himself because of a broken back; he doesn't have one, actually, and he'd like to keep it that way). At one point, the mechanic tells Mickey to cross a board over a pit, saying that it's safe, he tested it. Mickey walks across the board only for it to break in half and drop him into the pit (fortunately, a shallow one); the mechanic points out that Mickey needs to learn to test things himself rather than accept blindly what others tell him. (Whatever you think of how he taught Mickey that lesson, it's certainly good advice.)

A little promo for the upcoming season of Community.

Why do you care? Joel McHale @ 1:37 into the promo lets us know Community has "gargoyles". And it's true, too! Keith David, who did a voice over during a Ken Burns parody episode (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pillows_and_Blankets), will also be in the show this season.



Got my copy of Season 2 Volume 2 in 2013, though on the topic of Disney Classics:
- Ducktales the Movie Treasure of the Lost Lamp: http://www.amazon.com/Ducktales-Movie-Treasure-Lost-Lamp/dp/B00MHT49OK/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1421179641&sr=1-1&keywords=ducktales+the+movie&pebp=1421179669933&peasin=B00MHT49OK

- Goof Troops Volume 1- http://www.amazon.com/Goof-Troop-1-Jim-Cummings/dp/B00P9TPPA2/ref=sr_1_3?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1421179779&sr=1-3&keywords=goof+troops

- Goof Troops Volume 2- http://www.amazon.com/Goof-Troop-2-DMC-Exclusive/dp/B00MHT49RW/ref=sr_1_4?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1421179779&sr=1-4&keywords=goof+troops

And a release info on the TPB leading into the new Darkwing Duck comic: http://www.amazon.com/Disneys-Darkwing-Duck-Treasury-TP/dp/1926516044/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421180047&sr=1-1&keywords=darkwing+duck&pebp=1421180050032&peasin=1926516044

Basically the Dangerous Currency (a crossover arc between Ducktales and Darkwing Duck) is omitted with a new epilogue made. And the dialogue will be altered to make the characters more inline with how they spoke on the show.


I bought my copy even though I don't have a multi region DVD player.

my copy is already on the way :)

Ten... Yeah, the Ten Avatars of Vishnu was all I had on that score. You'd think Ten would have more Symbolic significance?

Oooh! Ten Commandments! That was a great movie, right?

Under the caverned pyramids great Set coils asleep; Among the shadows of the tombs his dusky people creep. I speak the Word from the hidden gulfs that never knew the sun - Send me a servant for my hate, oh scaled and shining One!

"It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."
