He has done his duty. I will do mine. Go ye and do yours.

The movie version of The Pirates of Penzance is now available on DVD, thanks solely (I'm assuming) to my efforts to publicize the shameful oversight. However, despite my enormous triumph, I find that I can't entirely enjoy this joyful occasion because it means that I don't get to write any more Gilbert and Sullivan parodies complaining about it. Allow me to tell you about it... in song. To the tune of: When the Foeman Bares His Steel - The Pirates of Penzance srah (backed by a chorus of dancing policemen?) Now that Pirates is released, (Tarantara! Tarantara!) This here blog...

Mystery Library Theatre 2007

I frequently get to play a game called "Now Why Did I Rent This Again?" This happens because I am too cheap frugal to get a Netflix account or go to my local video rental store, so I use the library for all of my video rental needs. The library system around here has a pretty awesome selection, which is nice, but they don't have many copies of anything. This means that I tend to request something in, say, June and I am put on the reserves list but it doesn't get to me until August, because everyone on the...

Know ye not, oh rash ones, that you have doomed it to extermination?

Reading through the IMDb message board for The Pirates of Penzance¹, I found that someone had posted the address of Universal Studios' contact form, encouraging other fans to ask Universal to release Pirates on DVD. This is what I wrote: Please release The Pirates of Penzance on DVD! I was at a video rental store this weekend and discovered that they had phased out their VHS rentals in favor of DVDs. As VHS is phased out, so - sadly - is The Pirates of Penzance, as that is the only version of the movie that is currently available. Generations will...

'Now I've got this dumb look on my face'

The day is nigh! Trapped in the Closet Chapters 13-22 will be released August 21! Stereogum has an awesome preview, but it also contains a LOT of spoilers for chapters 1-12. It's really something that you don't want to have spoiled, because there are so many cliffhangers. So if you've seen the first 12 chapters, proceed to Stereogum. If you haven't, well, the DVD is really the best way to experience Trapped in the Closet (the director's commentary is priceless) but YouTube will do if you can't get to the DVD. Here are the first 5 chapters: For the other...
