Hey Readers, It's Thursday Today, and That is when we update the Poll, and the Various Headings over on the Site. If you are reading this in your Email inbox (as all the cool kids are doing nowadays), then why not click over to the site and poke around at the various goodies scattered around the place.
The Daily Item of the Week This Week is The Princess Bride: Dread Pirate Edition on DVD.
(Hey, I just realized... I managed to add both Pirate and Ninja related material to my site today.)
The Princess Bride is one of My Favorite Movies, and has been mentioned in several different posts on this blog. I own it on VHS Cassette, and my copy is still in pretty good shape, but my VCR isn't, and one of these days I am going to have to replace my tape with a DVD version, of which there are FIVE. The Original, the Special Edition, the Dread Pirate and Buttercup Editions, and the even more recent 20th Anniversary Edition.
I poked around this morning through customer reviews and comments to find that the Dread Pirate/Buttercup Version is widely regarded as the one with the most awesome "Special Features" lineup. (These two "versions" differ only in packaging, sporting a masculine or feminine cover depending on your preference. If you like pink, then go ahead and get the Buttercup Edition. Just use the above link to do it, please.)
The "20th Anniversary" edition has an awesome cover, but apparently not much new behind it. Which is a shame, because the cover is really awesome.
A billion "Thank You"s to whoever used my new link when they bought a $50 book this week. You literally made me Shout with Joy when I fired up my Stats Page this morning. Give me about 1000 more readers like you, and I may be able to quit one of my two other jobs!
