DVD cover?

Post by Jessica Popsicles » Oct 12th 2002, 12:32 am

Just looked at Amazon.com to place my pre-order there and they have a picture for the set now. Jason, do you know if thats the actual picture of the slipcase or whatever?
Not sure why I'm asking you since AU kind of tries to keep you out of everything now but I thought you might have an idea.

I've never seen it. Incidentally, I asked Ross why he keeps telling people not to speak to me. Here was his response (via email):

"I was joking."

If you believe that, I've got some Another Universe stock to sell you.

anyone else order from Amazon notice this?

Shipping estimate: June 14 - November 5
Delivery estimate: June 18 - November 9

anyone ask them why it says that?

Before I submitted the order it was saying stuff about June 2003. I'm sure this has to be some mistake but I don't really understand it.
Other than that I haven't received my email confirmation from them yet, usually it doesn't take very long(I order from them all the time).
Just asking here now but if I don't receive it by tomorrow I'll be emailing them to ask them what that's all about. I know they'll reply within 24 hours.. like a good company :wink:

Not until you posted it. :?
Shipping estimate: June 14 - November 5
Delivery estimate: June 18 - November 9
Mine used to be something different, but now it says:

Shipping estimate: November 5
Delivery estimate: November 8 - November 11

Before I submitted the order it was saying stuff about June 2003. I'm sure this has to be some mistake but I don't really understand it.
Other than that I haven't received my email confirmation from them yet, usually it doesn't take very long(I order from them all the time).
I got my confirmation e-mail right away (as always), so I can't help you there, but it does say:

Shipping estimate: June 10, 2003 - November 5, 2002
Delivery estimate: June 13, 2003 - November 11, 2002


which is odd, to say the least. In the past I remember the estimated shipping dates from Amazon being a little screwy, but, well, mine's fixed now. :P I'd re-check your order status on the web page, though I bet you've already checked twice. If you do e-mail them, I'd be curious as to what they say.

Just an English question, why does the box say :

"MSCL, the Complete Series" instead of : "MSCL, the Complete Serie"

There is only 1 serie, no ???

Is it a mistake or is there a rule I don't know yet ( remember, I am French )

I just realized that even thought I am French, my English is better than Seebee / Mattel / Etc... who appears to be English ( never said anything else ) :shock: !!!

I've never seen/heard anything called a serie in my 19 years, so it must be series for a reason, but I don't really know..

Also, got my order confirmation and then moved my shipping to 2-day so I can get it quicker, the dates still had the June - November just the dates changed by a few days.

I did email Amazon, and I expect that I will get a reply from them by tonight(it's like 3am).

I'll post the reply here if it explains things.

"Series" actually is a singular noun. It means "A number of objects or events arranged or coming one after the other in succession." So it's like one thing which is a collection of other things. Sorry if I sound condescending. ("Serie" is actually an old word for "series" I believe.)
I just realized that even thought I am French, my English is better than Seebee / Mattel / Etc... who appears to be English ( never said anything else )!!!
Very, very true. And quite sad, really.

This whole MSCL fiasco has done something evil to my brain: I actually like the new Christina Aguilera single. Luckily I still think that what I've seen of the video is horribly stupid, but jeez. This whole thing is messed up.

At least she's honest about what she's selling.

Yeah, thanks Jessica. In the midst of all this turmoil, it was refreshing to see Claire's cute face go scrolling by... :)
