Woah...it's been a while, I guess...
Anyway, I hope to have a new 'themed' post on here soon, as there are a few different 'Gingery' topics rattling around my noggin. In the meantime, though, just a few 'housekeeping' notes:
THIS Tuesday, 10/12/2010, the re-issue of "Astaire and Rogers: 10-Film Collection" will be released by Warner Brothers in conjunction with TCM. The list price on the TCM site is $62.99 U.S.D., which is actually quite a bit less than what I paid for it a few years ago... so if you don't have it, ya need it...period. Question: what GandF movie is the following picture from? Cause I have no clue...
The info given for the box set does NOT indicate there is a'Blu-Ray' format option, but there were rumours to that effect floating around a while back...so stay tuned for that. Here's the link to it:
ALSO on 10/12/2010, Warner / TCM is releasing a NEW expanded box set of Busby Berkeley movies, entitled "The Busby Berkeley 9-Film Collection", which includes '42nd Street" and "Gold Diggers of 1933", along with, well, 7 OTHER BB films... here's the link to that one:
So there ya go for holiday shopping ideas... and, you KNOW a Gingerology post is not complete w/o some GingerPics... so here are a few I dug up, ALL of which are devastating!
Well, hope y'all are are faring a little better health-wise than I, among other aspects of life... and remember, in the midst of it all, it is ALWAYS wise to...
Keep It Gingery!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
