La La Land Records = Label of the Year 2012. Everyone else, just pack it up. Nothing more to see here. WOW!!!!!

This is mostly for posterity but for those looking through old threads on this score, if you are looking for the 2012 Tim Burden Movie Magic Hook Special in which he talks with the boys at LaLa

I ordered direct from LLL. It came in a padded envelope with bubble-wrapped lining, but was not bubble-wrapped in of itself.

Yeah, that's the way they usually do it...

I ordered two copies though, remember. ;)

You mean one from SAE, and the other from LLL?

No, both from SAE. That might explain the most conundrum evoking mystery of extra bubble-wrap. :lol:

I'd be interesting to know how many of the 5,000 copies went to North America, Europe, Asia, etc.

Anybody care to guess?

I'd say less than 500 probably went/will go to Europe... and the bulk of the stock probably remained within the U.S.

No, both from SAE. That might explain the most conundrum evoking mystery of extra bubble-wrap. :lol:

Well better too much bubble wrap than too little!

Just got it! Very fast delivery indeed!!

Edit: Damn! Mikko got it earlier! ;)

LLL or SAE?

Cracked or not?

:P

I think you're cracked.

I'm just curious and worried!

I did tell you guys that both my copies of Home Alone and 1941 came with damaged cases, right?

Well it is a legitimate concern then. You should expect your packages to arrive in good condition but when a CD case arrives cracked I replace it with a new one. Easy as that. Postal service is the culprit most of the time, handling packages badly, not the lack of bubble-wrap. Shame in any case.

Mine was from LLL, came in brilliant condition. Sounds also brilliant!

Yes it does. I am in the middle of the first portion of the Ultimate War. Nothing to complain about yet.

Well, that's what I did with Home Alone, although with 1941 I didn't even bother (the corner was broken, that's all, and the case still closed).

Still, it's a pain.

Great timing in delivery indeed, I'm driving to North-Karelia tomorrow, six hours.

Wow! Whatchoo gonna do there?

Here is a quick idea I whipped up, if deleted scenes for Hook ever showed up, I would do a fan edit, and would add a Overture to the beginning:

Overture (Short Version)

Overture (Long Version)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZOOpvj_xDc

what do you guys think? which is better?

Personally, I like the second one better. The expanded version really gives more of a sense of the beauty of the score. The first one does but its just too short.

um...so today I got home to find my second copy of hook in the mail...but I didn't order this one? Anyone ever have this happen?

It's also funny, as the first order's case was perfectly fine, but this case was cracked. By the looks of it, the cd's broken too.

:lol:

Though we shouldn't laugh since it a serious thing, having the cracked CD cases.

I have never had the luck of receiving two deliveries of the same order from any internet retailer, although in your case the luck might not be that good if even the CDs appear to be broken. Talk about Josh's nightmare scenario.

I opened it - it was just the rip in the case. The cd's and booklet are fine, just a rip in the back seal and a cracked case (which I replaced)

Well now you have two copies of the release, and one of them was free. Awesome. :)

Seriously...

You should check your credit card statement. Maybe they charged for two copies!

Just out of curiosity what was the number of your order?

I'm asking because I didn't receive mine yet...
