  15. Ah! I didn’t make the cut. Thanks for the info! Off to the Barnes & Noble website. Good thing they have a Criterion Collection sale starting this Friday. That’s a good excuse to go in and try to see if I can order it. I know that it says that it’s sold out in my area MA/NH, but I’ll try to change the states to see if it pops up somewhere.
  16. Hmm...I don’t have anything like that in my copy. I can’t find the nameplate info for the Offerman event anymore. I can find the info for the Norah Jones event and it says that the signed nameplate is available to the first 700 people that purchase a ticket to the event. I wonder if the Offerman event had a similar criteria. When I check the page for the event, most of the info is gone. But I remember something about them being mailed at a later date.
  17. I heard back from someone at The Seminary Co-Op on Friday afternoon. They sent me a tracking number which I checked and laughed that the book was in my mailbox that day. Funny how that works out. I think the signed nameplate is coming separately, right?
  18. I was going to reply to you to discuss the show, but I had this idea to go back and watch the 1st 7 episodes again, before I finished this season. I had several questions about things and refused to hit up some articles on the net. My first thought was that you would love the later episodes, if you enjoyed the 1st 4 which I found to be great with some hiccups along the way. The pilot episode was amazing right up until the scene with the monsters near the end. I felt that the editing was too “breakneck” paced for my tastes. I thought maybe they were trying to hide the special effects or something with the lighting. I had to rewind that scene a few times to see what was going on. The way they structured the second episode felt a lot like it should have been the penultimate episode or finale. It was quite surprising that it was only the second. And I thought that the third & fourth were solid, but I’m grasping to remember what happened in them. However, the last 6 episodes were all phenomenal: the Hippolyta & Ji-Ah episodes were real standouts and different from the rest of the season. The 9th episode was probably my favorite episode of any show this year. I have a few ideas how they can continue into a second season. I still preferred HBO’s Watchmen which I don’t think anyone mentioned in here. It helped to be familiar with the original source material. I was worried that a sequel or “remix” would never work, but was blown away by the storyline and how it tied to current times.
  19. Did you know that Mission Of Burma played in Lowell 16 years ago? They opened for Pixies at Tsongas Arena. That was the second time that I saw them. The first was when they opened for Wilco in Boston in June 2003. I forget how close to the show the announcement came that Sonic Youth couldn’t play and had to be replaced by Mission Of Burma. Edited to add article: https://glidemagazine.com/5381/sonic-youth-cancels-two-shows-with-wilco/ They canceled earlier during the day of the Boston show.

  22. Thank you very much for the offer! I am going to wait and have faith in The Seminary Co-op. If for some reason things fall through with them, then I will definitely take you up on that generous offer.
  23. Thanks for the info! Yeah, I didn’t receive anything like that at all. I also checked my junk folder too and nothing. I think Tim & I aren’t the only folks in the same boat, according to several similar posts on the FB group. Noonchorus sent me an automatic reply letting me know that someone real would get back to me which they did. He told me to email info@semcoop.com because Noonchorus does not fill merch orders. The automatic reply from them says that they are backed up right now.
  24. I’m in the same boat as you. I watched the Offerman live stream, but never received an email at all. I was going to give them a few weeks to see if I would receive anything. I’ll contact them today.
  25. Glad you enjoyed it! I have zero recollection of Jeff mentioning that this was being filmed for YouTube. It definitely sounded like a low key private event.
