Beware! MORE bootleg MSCL DVDs are showing up!

Edit on 5 January 2005: More bootlegs are infesting eBay than ever. See latest post in this thread. With the original five-DVD boxed set now going (brand new) for anywhere from US$100 to US$250 on eBay, the inevitable has happened: many sellers are listing bootleg copies. At least a half-dozen are ...

I would be extremely likely to buy a "Relativity" DVD set. I was fascinated by it and enjoyed the acting, especially from Kimberly Williams ... though both interests were at least two orders of magnitude smaller than my similar interests in "MSCL." Still, all I have are about 14 episodes recorded of...

I know you're trying your best, Sascha, and I don't mean to look like I'm dumping on your efforts. I've always been glad for what MSCL.com has been doing. It's hard to know what to do, though, about even discussing potentially infringing efforts, if the guidelines are contradictory. I guess it's sti...

I noticed that a thread in For Sale or Wanted was locked yesterday due to concerns (regarding the "Unofficial Soundtrack") about copyright infringement. It had been displayed for nearly two years already! I find it curious that you're only noticing it now. If you're this concerned about any such thr...

Wilson Cruz speaks at Virginia Tech (2004)

"Rickie" spoke to students at Virginia Tech on Wednesday, 15 September, about coming out as a gay teenager in Real Life and on "MSCL," and many other matters. Here's a report (with a good-looking photo!) on his talk from their Collegiate Times.

"A perfect storm." That's precisely what happened, expressed in the pithiest possible phrase, and as I've been contending in a dozen forums since 15 May 1995. To have a sole villain (or villainess, as first posited by Steve Joyner) has never made any sense. One item that's omitted here is, perhaps,...

Thanks for the replies above, and I'm still glad I bit. That's even with my seeing a re-release by Buena Vista as being likely at some point. Not for at least two or three years, though. The major studios usually make at least four to five years of separation between initial releases and "Special Ed...

I'd be happy to help with the transcript -- just parcel out up to 10 minutes for me. The first half will have more changes of "dialogue," as that was before Ed Zwick departed to attend to business matters, leaving Marshall and Winnie. You can definitely transcribe this without looking at the screen,...

There are a couple of truths (about locked threads)

Locking threads because an entire realm of discussion is no longer germane (or has become dangerous, legally or otherwise) is one matter. I can see Sascha, et al., wanting to put the AU matter behind them -- though it would have made more sense to shut this off months earlier, if they were intending...

That was yesterday. What're you allowed to post today?

On the one hand, you the moderators have an expressed concern about not having threads multiply beyond number, whether for relatively trivial (to me) matters of clutter, or server space, or perhaps both. On the other hand, you've got newcomers to "MSCL" who are enthusiastic enough to want to make th...

TV critics' early strong praise of "MSCL"

For the ten-year anniversary of "MSCL," a compilation originally posted on the alt.tv.my-s-c-life Usenet newsgroup (now sadly spammed). Roboteer is still active (as am I) after all these years on what is now the PlanetClaire Yahoo! Group . -- Steve ===== From: roboteer1@[...] (Roboteer1) Date: 13 Au...

I finally bit ... *sigh*

I finally, today, bought a set of the "My So-Called Life" DVDs. On eBay, new, factory sealed, $64.95 plus shipping. (When I could have gotten them for as low as $46.95 -- up to 21 months ago -- I didn't yet have a DVD player.) Please tell me I did the right thing. And that I was right to give up, fo...

Online petitions rarely are noticed. Even the one that got the current DVD set going involved commitments to buy the series, not just people who thought it was an excellent idea. (Which it is.) I demur with Sascha, though, about the audience. You're underestimating the presence of The N and its re-r...

The DVDs duplicate (with one exception) the credits and structure as shown on every appearance of these shows, from the original ABC run to the current run on The N. A summary: The pilot opens with Angela and Rayanne doing their begging routine. Episodes 2-14 and 16-19 open with exactly the same ope...

Forty-five here. I'm thoroughly enjoying picking it up again on The N each weekend, being moved by it all over again, on about my sixth or seventh go-round for each. The commercials are mostly in-house ads, and that's a lot less intrusive than what MTV did in 1995, when I first saw it. Unlike a few ...
