Boxing Rings.

So The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Extended Edition came out this week, and like a good little moron I put it on my Christmas list, so I can't rush out and buy it. Which is too bad, because I'd like to have something to watch while I'm reinstalling Mac OS X 10.3.4 on Magellan, and given my previous experiences, four hours sounds just about right. When I do get my grubby little paws on it, though, I will certainly also order one of these Lord of the Rings DVD Premium Slipcases from New Line. This is a great thing: I was at Target yesterday picking up some Christmas lights and I saw they were selling the boxed collection of all three Extended Editions, and there's just something about having all three in one big box that makes it feel that much cooler. And, hey, it's three bucks.

What I'm not as excited about, though, is the big huge 12-disc megacollection of The Matrix. I'm stoked to sit down and watch all three extended editions back-to-back (which will be twelve hours of LOTR goodness right there... Wow. Order pizzas and an IV drip) but I tried watching all three Matrices back to back once, and it just didn't fly. No pun intended.

Ah, Christmas 2004. It's good to be a media dork.
