The DVD of My Secret World has, I’ve just discovered, now sold out. Which is both good news and bad news, depending on who you are. Lucy is contemplating making some more in the New Year – albeit in a more basic version, without the postcards and whatnot – but will only do so if she thinks there’s a big enough demand. So, if you’re one of those people who didn’t get your act together last month, it probably makes sense to drop her a line and register your interest. You can do that here. If, on the other hand, you can’t imagine why anyone would want to watch it twice, or you have some unwelcome relatives staying and think that playing it repeatedly over the space of a weekend might make the antipathy mutual, you can STREAM it: it costs £4 for 48 hours, or the exact opposite of a NCP car park in central London.
Those of a more bookish bent should take note that stocks of Popkiss seem to be running low too, though again we have fingers crossed for a reprint. In the meantime, Bloomsbury are having a Christmas sale till 13th December, meaning you can get it for £10.19. Plus p&p, unless you’re ordering other stuff too (check out their 33 1/3 series – someone’s written a whole book about OK Computer… why would anyone do that?). Also, from 7th December, you’ll be able to buy eBook versions for £10.79 – again, that’s a sale price, but you can pre-order.
And finally… if you’re slightly distrusting of the cool, even-handed, non-partisan and thoroughly objective approach to the label’s history taken by both book and film and would prefer something a bit more prejudiced, blinkered and skewed, then you might like to know that we’ve just uploaded the text from There And Back Again Lane (SARAH 100). It’s a 22-page 8MB pdf and you can find it here.
