It's Prince of Persia Day in the US! So Let's Talk about Donnie Darko.

Yesterday, A.O. Scott of The New York Times looked at the world and thought, 'You know, it would make so much sense for me to do a video review today for a movie that's nine years old and for which there is nothing even remotely relevant going on right now to inspire it.'

A.O. Scott, we thank you for pulling this one totally out of your ass:

And while we're on the subject of pulling things from one's ass, I must say I'm slightly suspicious of the price for which my book is selling on Amazon.co.uk:

Granted, it would be worth every penny (and converted to US currency, that would be 116,380 pennies), but I still only get a dollar or so from that, and it's perhaps a bit early to start reselling my first editions.  Nice, though, that at least one unknown British opportunist has confidence in my marketing potential!

And now you can all go back to watching Prince Dastan parkour his spinach-eating self around your living room, because that's probably what you're doing right now instead of reading this anyway. 

Thanks to Emily for telling me her countrymen were trying to scam her!

OMFG! PG, you are hilarious! LMAFO over here while I am supposed to be working & pissed because I still can't run down the street & save my 8 whole dollars & buy my precious PoP, damn it! Those stupid people I work with are refusing to let me take a break to go to Walmart or Best Buy or whatthefuckever.

Haha, Donnie Darko, you are soooo creepy cool, I love you! Can't stand that critic, but secretly thanking him for getting me fired up to see DD again asap. Yup, Donnie, you & me have a date now! ^_^

Thank god your book is now on the .co.uk site! Means I can buy it soon :D but definitely not that first edition copy, jesus!

Vanessa September 14, 2010 at 1:14 PM  

haha, WTF is going on with them over at Amazon UK, they are seriously listing it for 748 pounds???

I guess they fixed it already, I just clicked thru & now they have it right. Geez, that would have seriously freaked me out if they priced it like that over here. I would have had to tell you, sorry but I ain't paying that kinda money for ANY book even if it was solid gold! >;-)

Becky Heineke September 14, 2010 at 2:20 PM  

Oh good, they did fix it! (I'm glad I got the screencap before they did, though...it made me laugh out loud. :D) Before Emily let me know about that one, I was going to comment on the one used copy being 41.55 (!). It's high-quality entertainment, to be sure, but that's a little obscene (especially when I don't get a cut of it!!)... :)

I <3 DD! Fricking love it!

Darling as much as I love you! I'm not sure I want to pay $700 for your book! I'd pay that to come and see you though!

My god, that picture of the Rabbit is bringing back bad memories of the dream i had the night after i watched DD..... I dont think i can bring myself to press play!!

KD,  September 14, 2010 at 8:49 PM  

Whoot. PoP celebration party! I'm not purchasing it until a few weeks from now though, because first month prices here are always ridiculously inflated...like $40 or whatever. Especially when I only want the DVD and not the bluray.

Plus I'm still holding out hoping I win a free copy via these websites you posted a while ago. Hahaha.

DD is great...

and kudos to that UK seller. I sell my old textbooks and stuff online all the time and you wouldn't believe the crazy prices people are willing to buy for!

Vanessa September 14, 2010 at 8:57 PM  

Well, I already started my PoP party here. I couldn't stand waiting any longer! I ran down to Best Buy, picked up the blu ray combo pak,(blu ray disc, reg. DVD, & digital disc) for $28 & used that Disney $8 coupon, so it was all of $20, whoo-hoo! & let me tell you, the blu ray is definitely worth every dadgum penny. It has the whole movie as is, then you can go to bonus features & watch the entire movie with the dagger of time popping up ever so often & allowing you to "turn back time" & you get a video of something special, like how they did certain special effects, or whatever, & there is a whole lot of Jakey in those extras. Yummeeee... >;-)

Sam September 14, 2010 at 9:47 PM  

^^ Maybe i need to buy a bluray player haha!

Katie,  September 14, 2010 at 11:32 PM  

Holy cow, Vanessa! How are you even able to function right now?!?!?! I'd be in a Jake coma by now, practically drowning in my own puddle of drool...

Going to watch it tomorrow at a friend's house. She said she doesn't have a widescreen TV, but they have a great surround sound system. I was like "Girl, I don't care about the AUDIO!!!"

KD,  September 15, 2010 at 1:10 AM  

LOL Katie.

I don't have a bluray player!! :< so mad.

I'll have my PoP party soon, when school eases up a bit!!

Vanessa September 15, 2010 at 6:58 AM  

Katie, I almost did drown in my own drool last night! I was in super Gyllenheaven. I don't know how I am going to keep from watching that damn thing every single day either. That would be fine by me, but I have to work or go live in a ditch somewhere, so I have to try to not let myself turn on that damn TV until after 6 pm or so. Aarrrggghhh, this is going to be harder than I thought. I am already wanting to watch it again now. Sheesh! That is one major addiction. >;-P

But, oh what a BEAUTIFUL addiction he is!

Off-topic: Hey PG, you're mentioned yet again . . . HERE!

Becky Heineke September 15, 2010 at 12:08 PM  

Clearly that werewolf post was the best thing I could have done to inspire other people to advertise for me! That's awesome. :D I don't know who that is, but I really appreciate the plug!!
