Geeking out on extras

I dunno what it is but the moment I hear about an upcoming dvd release my first instinct is to ask what kind of extras are included in the dvd set. I LOVE extras. I guess I can credit it to my love of filmmaking for behind the scenes movie magic. I also love to see the insights of the cast and crew on their thoughts for the making of the film. Recently I finally got my hands on Blade Runner: The Final Cut and seriously geeked out during a whole weekend just watching extras from all aspects of the film including costumes, the novel vs script comparisons and even an awesome featurette with the man himself Philip K. Dick. It was kind of wild seeing the 80s featurettes because they had this awesomely weird 70s soundtrack with shots of people on set working. Now I don't know about you other Blade Runner fans out there but I never associate the film with "our world" which is weird if you think about it but the movie always felt otherworldly if not futuristic at most. Seeing it disco style music just made it feel weird!

Anyway, my recent foray into "What Kind of Extras Does It Have?" land is for some upcoming dvd releases: Witchblade & Birds of Prey. It's about bloody time! With all the "meh" shows coming out alongside the good shows that networks killed in their infancy, it's nice to go back to the shows that take us to our comfort zone, reminding us during those times when Movies and TV really hit it out of the park. Some may not think these shows were very well written but I was pretty jazzed to tune into them.

So adding to my numerous list of DVDs to Buy (including The Indy Trilogy which was released yesterday), here's two more with some info on their extras.

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
