    RUMOR: John Williams plans to retire in 2019

    If JW is ever "retiring," it's either from scoring films or conducting concerts (not that the latter has been much of a thing for him for many years anyway). Nothing would stop him from working from home, at his own pace, on new concert pieces, adapting existing works, fulfilling commissions, and supporting Mike Matessino in producing proper expansions of all the scores that haven't received the golden treatment. I indeed imagine he looks forward to doing exactly that after Ep. IX. And, considering how long-lived many of history's great artists are and have been, what would JW do with all his remaining time if he actually were to full-out retire from music? There's only so much golf a man can play.
  2. I did ask them that, in my second message to them! I thought it might have something to do with DAD. But with no reply, I have no way of knowing if that was the problem or if it was something else. Either way, a quick reply from them would just reassure me that they saw my message and that the OOS DAD was just a coincidence to my entire order being somehow totally overlooked. And, yeah, now that they’re closed for the break, I guess I shouldn’t expect to hear from them for at least a week. I’ll just be patient.
  3. Still no reply from LLL to either of my two polite messages from 7 and 9 days ago inquiring why my order STILL hasn’t shipped. ☹️☹️ I hope you get word from them soon. But I seriously want to know what the hell is going on there in Burbank. Are they even seeing these messages from us? I get it about being swamped with orders, but they gotta know they’re dealing with really passionate fans here. It’s not fair to leave us twisting in the wind like this if they have seen these messages. How hard is it to write one line saying “we’ll send you a replacement disc in a couple weeks” or “your order hasn’t shipped because of XYZ”?? The lack of response makes me fear that they aren’t seeing these messages and as far as they’re concerned I already got my HP set. LLL, if you’re reading this, just please finally tell me why my order is still awaiting shipment. I don’t care if I have to wait if there’s a good reason—but tell me what that reason is.
  4. So am I the only person in the world who ordered HP the minute it came available and is still “awaiting shipment” on it? I sent them a polite message two days ago inquiring about my order... no response. This wait has become unmanageable. I have dreams at night now about waiting endlessly for things and during the day I’m refreshing my inbox and the LLL order page every 30 minutes hoping to see an update... or at least an answer to my message. It’s obsessive and I hate it (it’s actually affecting my productivity at work) but everyone else has at least had theirs shipped if it’s not already sitting proudly on their shelf. What in the blue **** is holding mine up???
  5. Reading this thread is killing me. I’m still awaiting shipment on mine. 😣
  6. Did anyone else order HP, SL, TWINE, and Die Another Day in the same order? And if so, have you received it yet, or received any notification it has shipped? Because I’m really curious about what would be keeping my order from shippjng by now and would at least take comfort in not being the only one “awaiting shipment.”
  7. I’m now convinced my order hasn’t shipped because Die Another Day is holding it up. Maybe they ran out of copies before they got to my order and are waiting for more from the plant. It’s the only reason I can think of.
  8. Disney may want nothing to do with Solo anymore, but that’s a hell of a way to treat Powell (if indeed they “forgot” to submit on time).
  9. Mine is #167105 and it’s still awaiting shipment too. Misery loves company : )
  10. I feel the same way. It’s not that I’m against the idea of hype, but taking it to this level for such a mediocre product is a little frustrating.
  11. What about the fact that if you substitute Dracula with Die Another Day (which they already have in stock), you’ve got my order. Meanwhile, we’ve got HP boxsets on planes to Australia and Ireland and now Virginia and who knows where else, while I’m just up the road from LLL!! (well, relatively speaking..)
  12. I know, right?? It’s a trope that’s long worn out its welcome.

    I don’t get this post.
  14. From Burbank, I’m a five-hour drive north on I-5. And I placed my order within the first five minutes. I had better see a shipping notice today! Pretty please??
