They have a big fat book with all the LDs they can order. I got the 5
0080 discs I was missing from them even though the entire rest of colonized
space insisted that they were out of print. They had Gundam box sets in
there, all kinds of crap. The only thing they won't do is order something
that is available here, even if that thing isn't an LD here. So I had to
go to the Laserdisc Division (internet) to get my Stars Of Space Jam cartoon
boxed set. If you're looking for import Godzilla movies and music discs,
that's the place.

Divx is dead, thanks to Circuit City not being able to fool anyone into
investing in it with them. I know the lowest common denominator exists but
do *all* companies have to strive to please them?
