Is this REALLY the week for it?

What about the movie? DVD, Blue Ray, theaters? Any info will be great....we have past the 40 year anniversary...of the shows...are we waiting for the 40th anniversary of the Roxy & Elsewhere release?

Please Gail, let him give us a little slimmer. (that's a slim glimmer [of hope])

BTW these surprises like the Road Tapes, Finer Moments and the latest Corsage are great! Really nice.

After watching a clip of Roxy yesterday I decided I need this in my life more than ever.

Imagine how some of us feel after seeing the trailer on the extras of the Baby Snakes DVD, released in 2003.

Yeah what a cock-tease that was.
As was the 30mins "preview" during the first ZPZ tour.

This may seem a strange question but is Valentines day on a different day in the US? Only reason I ask is I, like many people, am awaiting the release of RBP and I swear i read somewhere that it was on its way on valentines day which in the UK is today. :!:

I called musictoday and waited about 10 minutes, talked to someone, then waited another 10 minutes while she tried to get an answer to the question. She said they had "20 inches of snow". I have no idea if that is hyperbole, but she said "If we can get into the warehouse, we can ship today.".
So, I asked "So, the product is in the warehouse?". She admitted she didn't know and that they were having a hard time due to the weather. But, she did promise to find out and reply by either phone or email by the end of the day. Gotta feel bad for people in bad weather. But, even if the stuff is in the warehouse, it doesn't look good for speedy shipping today.

Fell for it again, eh?
"On or about February 14th."
Buahahahahaahaha.
Sorry, I feel for you guys, seriously. I would be going crazy. I will order this when it's available but never another pre-order from ZFT. No fucking way.

some bets could be made here:

- will it be released in 1 or 2 days or not?...
- will the addressed Vaultmeister appear here and answer? (it's clear that he's here and reading this).

My bet is "no" for both, learning from the past... Unfortunately.

call me naive (i'll do it myself) but that does sound like the most promising bit of news since august.

Well, I got an email reply. It said:

Thank you for your call this morning. Due to weather conditions, the shipment of these items has been delayed. You will receive a shipping confirmation email when the item is available and on its way.

The following items are delayed. To be sent to: (address)


Of course, that didn't tell me much, so I called again. The guy on the phone said that his computer is telling him "No Stock" on RBP. He gave the caveat that it could be on a truck that has been delayed due to weather conditions, but after rephrasing the question a few times, it was my impression that they have no info on RBP other than it was supposed to have been there already.

I'm telling my 2 and a half hear old to live a healthy lifestyle so that one day she can be the first to hear my RBP. Id like someone in my family tree to hear it when it is finally released by dz's child.

Oh, a pity, it seems I'm about to win in both bets up there...
