Coty’s Thoughts:

Fight Club Anniversary T-Shirt by Kevin Tong and available at ChuckPalahniuk.net. Pros: Great artwork designed by Kevin Tong. The shirt is available in two colorways, cornflower blue and creme.  Cons: The tee design is printed on a Next Level blank, which is a little more fitting and thin compared to an American Apparel tee. And just so you know, I like thin tees (and have a high level  of disdain for thick and heavy ones). Price: $20.

I’m Getting Too Old For…

Growing up in the 80′s, my mom loved the Lethal Weapon series of movies, though I think she secretly watched it just to see Mel Gibson. Nonetheless, I had my share of Lethal Weapon re-runs on HBO and TNT and playbacks on VHS. More recently, she purchased the entire Lethal Weapon collection on DVD. My mom is progressive so that means she’ll probably be picking up the series once more on Blu-ray in the next 2-3 years. Did I mention that she already owns the movies in both VHS and DVD formats?

Anyhow, check out this shirt from Crispy Tees, a joint venture from the guys collectively known in the T-Shirt and design communities as The Black Axe. The shirt features Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) with a twist to his usual catchline. Too Old For This Shirt is printed on an American Apparel blank and is available now from Crispy Tees for $18.00.

Netflix, Why Cause Me Grief?

I’ve been a faithful Netflix subscriber for almost three years now. I love the convenience of being able to set up a movie queue and have the movies I select sent directly to me, in the order that I wish, via snail mail. I’ve always disliked Blockbuster and their damn late fees so Netflix and its no late fee policy was a godsend for me.

All has been good, except for a few hiccups that I have experienced the last couple of weeks. First of all, there was that much publicized shipping debacle that affected Netflix and its huge base of, like myself, faithful subscribers. They ameliorated that problem by giving us a %15 percent discount on or monthly membership fees. That was all fine and dandy until the following happened.

You see, this summer one TV series has captivated me (well maybe two if you count Six Feet Under). That TV series is Showtime’s Dexter. It’s a great series, albeit a demented one, starring oddly enough, Six Feet Under’s Michael C. Hall. About two weeks ago I wrapped up watching Dexter Season 1 on DVD, DVD’s that I get shipped to me via Netflix. Nonetheless, even before I finished watching Season 1, I eagerly added Dexter Season 2 to my faithful Netflix queue.

Dexter Season 2 was released this past Tuesday, along with the plethora of new releases that stock store shelves on Tuesdays. In any case I eagerly awaited for discs 1, 2 and 3 (I have the 3 discs at a time deal) of Dexter in my mailbox, as I had situated those three discs at the top of my Netflix queue. So yesterday rolled along and I receive a fresh Netflix shipment as expected. To my utter dismay I discovered that Netflix had shipped me Dexter Season 2 disc 4 without even sending me discs 1, 2 or even 3 first! To make matters worse, I only received 2 of the 3 DVD’s that I was supposed to receive! The second disc was the movie Sidekick (which was below Dexter discs 1, 2, 3 and 4 in my queue). The third DVD that I was supposed to receive (which they said they were going to ship out this Friday) was pulled apparently because it is currently not available for shipment (even though they said it was available a just a few days ago) and I have yet to receive a third DVD!

To make matters even worse than they already are, Disc 1 of Dexter currently has a “very long wait” on my queue. Will I ever be able to watch Dexter Season 2 in episodic order via Netflix? Why even bother ship me Disc 4 of the season if I haven’t even received Disc 1 yet? Netflix, Netflix, Netflix, you guys should have some sort of algorithm to handle this issue or at the very least have a preference setting in which I can check off whether or not I would like to receive season discs, or multi-disc movies, in disc order or not.

End of rant.
