No, they did still release CDs after 2005, that was my point -- from Autumn '05 on, my columns have been written for free FSM CDs and an iMac. (And it's not like anyone's forcing me to write them)

I used to buy everything right away at full price when I was making sweet screenwriter money.

27 years later, um, not so much.


I feel you.



Likewise. The Crash plus health issues have definitely constrained my disposable income!

Seemed too have missed the boat on 15% - what is Labor Day was this a one-day sale, its doesn't matter I haven't been looking lately - with the titles being released i'm more than happy paying retail.

Apologies for repeatedly bringing the thread back to me, but--when I was at my earnings peak, there were way fewer soundtrack releases than there are now. La-La Land wouldn't exist for several more years, I think Varese Club might have gone dark, and new scores weren't being released so regularly (and this was also before the vinyl resurgence -- I'm trying to be responsible by playing all my recent vinyl purchases multiple times before picking up such tempting new releases as Vice, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and The Last Black Man in San Francisco; I'm currently on side two of Black Mirror: USS Callister).

Apes boxset has landed! That was pretty fast shipping to Canada.

Well done, LaLa.

The Bettencourt Solipsism

At one point I was not familiar with the word "solipsism," but after I saw it applied to the characters of my favorite film (Noah Baumbach's Kicking and Screaming) and of my then-favorite filmmaker (Whit Stillman, since supplanted by Baumbach as my favorite), I knew I'd have to learn it, and it's a wonderful word.

I'm just not certain if "The Bettencourt Solipsism" should be a Robert Ludlum novel or part of Adam Hall's "Quiller" series. Whichever has less action and excitement.
