First "The N" episode

Well, with "Dancing in the Dark," at least ... not one word cut, not one scene omitted, full credits, perfect picture and sound. In fact, it apparently had two steps above the original MTV showings: no commercial break after the opening credits -or- before the end credits, and -- although I can't qu...

Current info on The N's showings

I checked the full schedule available at The N's Website -- http://www.the-n.com/ntv/schedule.php ~ Each "MSCL" episode is shown Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings, and at the same three times each night. First up, on 2-4 April, is "Dancing in the Dark." ~ Only one satellite feed, so its times ar...

You're still using others' property

Your covers are beautiful work, well designed ... and yet, I have to react to your outrage. They aren't, in any legal sense, your property. You used others' work without authorization, and if copyrights and trademarks mean anything, they would not allow your including any of these items: ~ Images ow...

You're not going to believe this ...

Someone in Modesto, California is already auctioning off the Bonus Disc on eBay. Click here for full details. The disc has 11 bidders, is currently at US$46.00 (with no reserve price), and the auction ends on 27 October at 10:45 am Pacific time. The owner says, "Bid quick before I change my mind!" I...

Your views on "MSCL" DVD picture quality?

I resisted the siren call of the "MSCL" DVD full set for many months, but I now have a DVD player, and the set is available for as little as US$52 through Amazon-associated sellers. What hasn't got me past falling back on my three (!) sets of the series on VHS is that many disagree strongly as to th...

Another AU screwup -- California comics shops!

AnotherUniverse's ineptitude apparently is not at all limited to this "MSCL" DVD-and-vapor-extras fiasco. Their cash-flow shortage has affected comic-book stores in the California "Comics & Comix" chain, in Berkeley and elsewhere, which they apparently either own or have contracts with to supply. AU...

Thank you again, Claire and Winona

I wrote these musings for myself in late May 1995, after "MSCL" had been cancelled, and first posted them on the Net on 25 August 1995, which had become -- for those of us then in "The So-Called List" e-mail community -- the first "MSCL Day," one year after the series' original premiere. Nothing has...

The DVD FAQ is a mess of verbiage compiled over months and largely undistilled, ending up not really serving the purpose of an effective FAQ. Is it that difficult, amiga, to answer the question with five accurate words? ... Those being: "Yes, it is Region Zero." (And some vendors are misreporting th...

What Mephisto and others have posted about this DVD-saga memory booklet creates, for me and others who've been around among the longest in admiring the show, the highest of "MSCL"-related ironies.

Is the bonus disc by itself worth it?

First of all, my own thanks to Jason Rosenfeld for his tireless efforts in using persistence and leverage for getting this masterpiece finally released -- in full, unaltered, and in a wholly legal version. And to all those on mscl.com and elsewhere who initiated and abetted the crusade. Second, my s...

Excellent choice of software, Sascha, and it's far more flexible and easier to use than the earlier program. I regret not coming by earlier this Summer/Autumn when you first announced it, and I've posted 12 times in two days since I finally did visit.

They aren't connected. And there is no plot. It's a putrescent, pretentious mess, symbolism unanchored in meaning, the artiste run amuck, and you'll go insane trying to figure it out. "Mulholland Drive" even deprived Baz Luhrmann of a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Director. But that, tho...
