There's some paving, landscaping, painting, flooring and furnishing to go. 3-6 more weeks. Sure, it isn't exactly a new purchase so much as an almost completed purchase but... yeah. I'm happy about it.

It's nice I suppose, I just don't get the McMansion.

Looks nice to me, you reckon it's too pretentious? Every man and his dog goes for this style these days.

 

 

Hence I'm a cat lover

 

Mind you, if it was within my budget I'd live there

I'm not having a go, the McMansion style is to use as much space as possible for the domicile, what ever happened to the garden?

That look freaking awesome. I only have the extended version that is non blu ray. Got all 3 when it was first released in a box together.

 

Does it have more deleted scenes /special features in it?

I'm not actually sure. The movies are on two BD-50s each, with three DVDs of extras for each. The first theatrical Rings blus had zero/very few special features. I think the extended DVDs have the same extras, but there may be a few more they've dug up.

 

Just found this in a review:

The extras here are identical to the DVD EEs but with the addition of the behind-the-scenes Costa Botes documentaries for each film. They are a nice addition but like all the extras, they come on DVDs and are not in hi-def and don’t have the same quality as the films. In other words, they are duplicate content, in a new box.

It's what I expected. I know the behind the scenes stuff wasn't shot in HD which is why it's just DVD. I do remember reading an interview ages ago with Jackson, about how they'd need to rescan millions of feet of film in order to make a blu-ray transfer. I can't remember if he was talking about the extended movies themselves, or just the extras. These extended blus are from a new transfer though, as there were a lot of complaints about the quality of the theatrical release. Whatever, I don't know the specifics. I just need to find the time to watch these...

Too much maintenance involved. :P

 

the lack of gardening releases spare time to earn enough to pay for the extra heating and cooling such a set-up demands - moves are afoot to penalise such designs for their lack of ecological sustainability

 

personally i like eaves, trees, and a little separation from the neighbours, noting that i live in a very high density area, but where most of the housing is detached and usually over half a century old

 

in any event, congrats on having your own hose - it's a neat feeling, and you won't believe how many "treasures" you'll accumulate especially having a garage

 

our car lives in the street, and my motorbike on the front porch - wish i had a shed, but at least my study has lots of built in robes (full of hardware) and a nice northerly view

Hmm, the defintion of McMansion seems to have changed since last I checked in. It used to mean overly large building, out of place in it's street, with rediculous trimmings to try and make it look fancy. My place is basically a simply designed rectangle, no trimmings, matches exactly with the houses around it. I suppose McMansion has just come to mean "3 or 4 bedrooms on a small block".

Oh well still sounds like a hobbit orgy to watch and relive those awesome LOTR moments again.

To me McMansion meant large looks-expensive but no-terribly-well-built cookie-cutter houses.

 

Nothing in that picture indicates that to me, in fact it looks like the beginning of a nice home.

 

Just out of curiosity, is it too personal a question to ask about the square footage (or meterage?) of the home?

A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More & The Magnificent Seven on BD, three for $40.

 

Awesome.

Nice, I've been wanting to get Dollars trilogy for ages, I'll have to look out for them now. I don't think I was much of a fan of the Seven though.

 

And I'm vaguely aware there are multiple transfers around depending on region, some of which look shit. I should research this...

McMansion is a large house on a small block similar to those around it.

 

Well that what it means to me...
