In time for the holidays, some things you may be interested in:

The new wave of Walt Disney Treasures is out. The Oswald the Lucky Rabbit set is fantastic, with all the surviving Oswalds fantastically restored, with commentaries and a huge feature-length documentary on Ub Iwerks. Definitely worth the price. The Chronological Donald V. 3 is also out, with Chip 'n Dale's debut, as well as Donald's Dilemma, one of my favorites.

I've recommended The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service before, and I shall do so again - it feels a lot like 'if the cast of Seinfeld did horror' at times. Volume 5 has just come out, with more creepy after-death experiences from our group of deadpan snarkers. Check it out.

There's a buttload of manga coming to comic shops this Wednesday the 19th:

- The 9th volume of CLAMP no Kiseki, which wraps up X and tosses in Miyuki-chan in Wonderland and the Snow Goddess shorts, is out.
- Drifting Classroom 9, for horror fans.
- Golgo 13 12, for Golgo 13 fans.
- Dark Horse finishes their Gunsmith Cats wideban re-release with the 4th volume.
- Hana-Kimi 21 is out, and I know some of my flist read that.
- The re-releases of High School Girls are starting, with revised cover art, better printing, and better translations. Sadly, they're reprinting them only as the old ones go OOP, so we have Volumes 1 and 3 but no 2.
- Oh My Goddess 7 unflipped. It's odd seeing the series from this far back where you actually saw things like Keiichi being sexually attracted to Belldandy as opposed to his current eunuch state.
- A boxset of the first 3 Sgt. Frog mangas, for those who didn't buy it at the time.

And in case any of you are members of the Saint Etienne fanclub (as I am), the Boxette collecting their first 3 fanclub-only CDs with a 4th CD of ultra-rare rarities is reason to sing. If you aren't a member... why not? Do you want to make Sarah Cracknell sad?

Inspired by The Ginny:

Girl: Do you think a girl should go to bed with a feller, if she doesn’t love him?
Guy: No. [pause] Unless it’s me.

Sarah Cracknell: I heard she drove the silvery sports-car /
Along the empty streets last night. /
Hanging around / with hair-dos like mine. /
No, I haven’t seen the kids for some time. /

Picked up her shoes from the red-brick stairway, /
Just like a harpsichordist she moved. /
And back upstairs / at half past two, /
With a paper folded, outside the loo. /

Rain falls / like Elvis tears. /
Oh no, / no sugar tonight. /
Out on the high street, / dim all the lights and /
Cry coloured tears again. /

And baby, / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Don’t forget to catch me. / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Hobart paving, don’t you think that’s it’s time, /
On this platform with the drizzle in my eyes? /
And baby, / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Don’t forget to catch me. / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Hobart paving, don’t you think that’s it’s time? /
The ticket’s in my hand, the train pulls down the line. /

Rain falls / like Elvis tears. /
Oh no, / no sugar. /
Out on the high street, / dim all the lights and /
Cry coloured tears. /

And baby, / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Don’t forget to catch me, / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Don’t forget to catch me, / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Don’t forget to catch me. / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Oh no, no sugar tonight, / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Oh no, no sugar tonight, / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
No no, no sugar tonight. / (don’t forget to catch me.) /
Don’t forget to catch me...
