Wahey!

I finally got my Star Wars DVDs today…

…Shortly after I received an email from Amazon saying ‘well, they should be there by now, but seeing as they’re not, we’ll send you another copy for bugger all.’

Hmm.

Should I send the other copy back?

Pfffft. It’s getting swapped in at Gamestation for The Sims 2. ^_^

Amazon.co.uk and/or Royal Mail can FUCKING LICK MY TAINT.

I pre-ordered the Star Wars Trilogy on DVD back at the start of this month, which shipped on Sunday, with free first class delivery, estimated delivery date Monday.

Monday came. No DVDs.

Tuesday came. No DVDs.

Wednesday came. No DVDs.

It’s now Thursday, the postie has been on his one and only delivery of the day and there’s STILL NO FUCKING DVDs!

Jesus Christ, first class delivery? My arse! I could have ordered them off Play with their second class free delivery and had them by now. I could have bought them in Kilmarnock when I was there yesterday to sign on. I probably could have ordered them air mail from dvdboxoffice.com in Canada and had the DVDs now. Is it Royal Mail’s fault? Is it Amazon’s fault? I don’t know, but I’m getting majorly fucking pissed off now. Grrrrr. >_< In short, if it's a DVD, CD, video game or gadget, get it from Play. Amazon can eat my ass with a side order of balls and a garnish of llama jizz. End rant.

I was wrong about Ayreon…

Did I say that The Human Equation by Ayreon was my probably Album of the Year for this year? I was wrong. That title currently belongs to Be by Pain of Salvation. I won’t go into too much details (in fact, I haven’t even finished listening to it for the first time – it’s THAT GOOD that I can speak of its greatness before it’s even FINISHED!) but it’s a concept album of amazing depth, breadth and scope, ranging from chunky metal riffs to orchestral beauty to big imposing church organs to folky stuff to emotion-drenched Jeff Buckley-esque vocals to…well, there’s something here for everyone.

Buy it when it comes out. That’s an order.
