What the Fuck! I bought them as LPs when they came out, I bought them as CDs from Ryko, I should at least buy the UM re-issues, but how many fucking times do I have to buy these? My LPs play pretty fine.

Well, no one said you had to buy them, Tweez. :mrgreen:
I think it's nice that they keep providing options for different mediums.... so long as these suckers didn't cause any of the delay we are experiencing with RBP! :mrgreen:

Personally, I would rather receive a UM project/object in cd form
than a RBP
(just give us the dvd!)

Decided to watch Baby Snakes today. I watched the ad for this before I started the movie.

:mrgreen:

*edit*
Watched it again after the movie. Just for shits and giggles.

That's a Saturday, which I presume means that it won't ship this week. Shipping a week from today looks like best case.

The delay is either due to the complete distruction of the cd pressing plant in manilla, or Gails been a little busy sorting out the decorations for this years christmas tree.

small things add up... the website - they have reused the same damn lame anims for every holiday for what? 4-5 years? maybe it's less... I don't know... but updates are not hard and someone could be doing something so much better with the site. afterthought. it figures the business would function in the same realm.

I got the same email, I guess that means it will be well in to 2014 before RT2 & RBP arrive on these shores. At least I can stop thinking about it now, the anticipation was killing me. Pity it was Live Nation and not ZFT who provided the update though. Maybe the strap line on this site should be "Remember...., You heard it here last".

A bunch of people here have been cancelling their pre-orders. Maybe they figure they've got to do some damage control before more orders are cancelled.

You'd think it wouldn't take 2+ months of delays to give them the idea to do some "damage control" :|

I pre ordered on august 1 or was it the 2nd...
I've never received one single email about this release
Except for the conformation of the order itself.

Why the terrible service zft?
Why do you hate us as we come before you with our
Wallets open?
Just tell us why the delay.
August 1 for fuck sakes!
