No, I Mentioned the Disc

I was visiting my sister in her hotel room last night and picked up a copy of TV Guide. In it I learned that Mr. Jerry Seinfeld & Co. are finally coming to DVD, with Jerry supervising the addition of extras such as outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage. This must mean they’ve finally wrung out enough cash from syndication deals that have it on four times daily or more in some markets.

If you’re like me, you’ll find this news bittersweet. Seinfeld was a hell of a show, and most of the re-runs are still eminently watchable. But what we really need is some new material.

Side note: I wanted to mentioned this immediately when I got back last night, but my Internet was down. As it was when I awakened this morning. And after lunch. When I finally got ahold of my providers (they hung up the first time), they made noise about a “virus,” which is computerspeak for, “We fucked up but don’t know how to fix it yet.” (Not to be confused with “That’s technically impossible,” which as Dilbert tells us, often means “I don’t feel like doing that right now.”)
