Subject: PARAMOUNT HOME VIDEO chat
Date: September 6, 2000
Session Start: Wed Sep 06 19:53:22 2000
[RonEpstein] Good Evening everyone and thanks for being here
tonight I want to start off by introducing Martin Blythe of
Paramount Home Video who will proceed to introduce his partners
tonight... Hello Martin!
[martinb] Hi. At present it's just myself and Michael Arkin, who is
Senior Vice President, Marketing for Paramount Home Enteryainment.
[RonEpstein] Thanks for coming here tonight - there are so many
here who have questions for you......so let us begin...
[Dedrick] I loved M:I-2 and I was wondering if it was PG-13 or R
[michaela] The film was rated PG-13
[WouterHeyse] Thanks for being here! Could you tell us about the
plans, if any, for Once Upon ATime In The West?
[michaela] We plan our release schedule year by year and currently
that film is not planned for release in 2001.
[BillHuelbig] Thanks Paramount guys for all the great movies you've
already released. Any chance for THE ELEPHANT MAN or (a real outside
chance) Roman Polanski's THE TENANT? Thanks again.
[michaela] Neither of these films are on our upcoming release
schedule for the balance of 2000 or 2001, but both titles are great
[Mo_Hayder] What's the status on Roman Holiday? By the way, Thanks
[michaela] We're planning on bringing out Roman Holiday in 2001.
Thanks for the comment on Braveheart, we're all thrilled with how it
looks on DVD and the great reception the title is getting from the
DVD buying public.
[MarkPfeiffer] Universal, Warner Bros., and Criterion have done a
terrific job with DVDs of Alfred Hitchcock's films. From what I
understand, a new widescreen transfer has been made for "To
Catch A Thief", which AMC has shown and will show again.
Jeffrey Wells stated on Reel.com that Paramount has no interest in
releasing this to home video. Is there a possibility of seeing this
in the near future on DVD? I have been very pleased with the
transfers and supplements on Paramount films such as "The
Talented Mr. Ripley", "Nashville", etc. Keep up the
[michaela] We're evaluating our entire ctalog for release,
including To Catch a Thief but no definitive date has been set.
Thanks for your comments on Ripley and Nashville.
[todd_s] thanks, With the sucess of Fox's X-Files season sets.
Could we see Star Trek:Tng this way? Also, any news on When Worlds
[michaela] We're exploring many different options of STNG, nothing
is solidified, are boxed sets something you want?
[todd_s] Absolutely. With so many episodes. It would take too long
for it all to be released a 2 per disc.
[michaela] we'll keep that in mind. done
[Steve_Simon] Thanks for comming tonight- All of us at the Home
Theater Forum would love to know if there are any release plans for
the GodFather movies?
[michaela] We're working very closely with Francis Ford Copolla on
developing a strategy for the Godfather series, stay tuned...
[BrianDery] Thanks for being here. Will "Crocodile Dundee 1 &
2 be released for the theatrical release of "III" and what
about the original?
[michaela] We're certainly thinking that a release of Croc 1 &
2 timed to the DVD release of Croc 3 makes sense.
[Ike] Thanks for coming tonight. Any plans for The Double Life Of
Veronique on DVD? Thanks for the fantastic jobs on so many titles.
[martinb] Me again - rather than be a bit vague about unreleased
titles, can we focus for a bit on some of our released and announced
titles, such as MI2 for a bit?
[RonEpstein] I am sure people will have questions about MI2
[martinb] No problem. I was hoping we could talk a little about
strategy, using MI2 and Ripley for examples... Regarding Veronique,
I'm not sure but I don't think that's our title.
[RonEpstein] I just want to jump in and say to Martin and Michael
-- while I understand your problem with unannounced titles, please
realize that our members use this chat to give studios like yours
feedback on what they wish to see on DVD. I am sure this will help
you greatly, and if you can give a general idea on if some of these
titles are in the works, it makes the consumer very happy. Would you
both like to talk about MI2 for a bit?
[martinb] Absolutely we take a list of recommendations on board.
Funnily enough, we get so many different requests that we can never
satisfy everyone. You'be surprised at the diversity! Bring em on
[michaela] The DVD release of MI2 is Paramount's most ambitous
release to date...because I don't want to be redundant, have any of
you seen the details of the release on the web?
[RonEpstein] Yes, we have been talking about the title on the
forum. In fact, the full specs of the release has been posted.
Anything you wish to add, gentlemen?
[michaela] The disc has the most dynamic interactive menus that
I've eve seen... it will serve as a signature disc from Paramount
and I believe will raise the bar on DVD features.
[RonEpstein] Paramount has slowly been releasing more abundant
[michaela] Paramount may have been slow in the game, but we're
jamming to increase the number of special features on our
discs...we've seen over a 500% increase in the number of special
features and although we don't call any of them sepcial editions,
releases like Ripley and Sleepy Hollow as well as Angela's Ashes are
[RonEpstein] That's the way to DVD right! Thanks Paramount
[martinb] We plan to show as many of you as we can the contents of
the MI2 DVD before street date. I don't know that I plan to show
loads of it to consumers however I consider you forum guys sort of
honorary members of the press. Notice that we don't call it a
special edition, and we didn't do so with Ripley or Sleepy Hollow or
Braveheart. Special Editions sounds like a marketing ploy. We try to
tailor contents appropriate to each DVD and newer bigger titles.
[RonEpstein] I'll try to refrain from using Special Editions and
Paramount. We understand.
[michaela] Don't misunderstand, we may in fact release special
editions in the future, but you tell me what is the criteria for
calling something a special edition?
[SteveEnemark] When can we expect to see John Ford's THE MAN WHO
SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE on DVD?
[michaela] You should see that title sooner rather than later.
[martinb] It's been a thrill to work on some of the older westerns
like Shane, where George Stevens Jr (the son) did a lot of major
newspaper interviews and National Public Radio to promote the DVD.
Also True Grit and El Dorado. These titles because they are older
take a long time to prepare. Please understand some of the reasons
for delays have to do with the original theatrical materials. done
[Aaron_B] Any plans for Ghost?
[michaela] We haven't locked into a release date for Ghost just
yet. We've certainly had many conversations about it and what we
would like to see on the disc.
[StevenA] Do you plan to release 1980's Best Picture winner
ORDINARY PEOPLE to DVD? And please, if possible, release the
original Australian cut of Croc Dundee 1, via seamless branching
would be great! Thanks!
[michaela] We were considering Ordinary People for a 20001 release
but actually may slide it back a year or so. I know we've taken a
ribbing for being slow in releasing our titles, but Ordinary People
is not slated for a 2001 release.
[IvanShreve] With the cult classic PRETTY POISON currently out of
print on video, is a possible DVD release in the works?
[martinb] Sorry we better look up Pretty Poison - never heard of it
- but I'll look it up right now.
[TaoT] Hi there! I guess this is a big question this evening. Can
you tell us about the plans, if any, for redoing and re-releasing
Star Trek movies in a Special Edition form (like ST:TMP) with more
extras as well and remastering STV, STVI, and Generations in
widescreen anamorphic format? Also, can you give us some details
about ST:TMP's facelift? Sorry this isn't about MI2, but I had my
question all copy+pasted and ready :)
[martinb] We have BIG BIG plans for the Original ST Motion Picture
but without being snotty about it, I want to be able to announce it
in the regular way. Hope you guys can stay tuned a bit longer....
[Noels] Following the tone that MI-2 will set, are there any
special edition versions of Titanic, Face/Off or The Saint planned
for release next year? Keep up the good work, we're all looking
forward to MI-2!
[michaela] From the very beginning, we had conversations with
Lightstorm about a special edition of Titanic on DVD and I'm
confident that eventually there will be one. Mr. Cameron will
certainly be involved in anything we would do with this title. The
other two are not under consideration for special editions at this
[martinb] I would add that we are careful not to upset consumers by
bringing out special editions close to the original standard
release. So there will always be a proper time lag.
[Neil_Bulk] Thank you for coming tonight and for the wonderful Star
Trek - The Original Series DVD's. What movies do you have planned
for 2001? Is The Untouchables one of them?
[michaela] Untouchables is a title that we'd like to embellish with
special features and we're currently trying to work out the
logistics of getting as many cast members involved as possible.
Naturally, when you have a cast that includes some of the biggets
names in the business, scheduling is a challenge. This is the same
reason that we had to delay Braveheart, in order to get Mel Gibson's
[JonathanH] Are there any plans to rerelease Top Gun in 16x9
widescreen with extra features? Also, could you give a possible
timeframe for a Titanic SE?
[michaela] To answer an earlier question, the Double life of
Veronique is a Paramount release, but we haven't scheduled a DVD
date for it. We probably will do a 16x9 on Top Gun, but cannot
confirm any dates or other info at this time. Ditto to on Titanic.
[TravisHedger] Thank you for joining us tonight Paramount. We
appreciate your time. Any news on Forrest Gump? I had this on CD-i a
few years back and it had a 60 minute featurette disc along with the
movie. Also any chance of ST:TNG on DVD to have 4 episodes per disc?
[michaela] No plans on Forrest Gump just yet. We're loooking at the
number of episodes to put on DVD for all our TV product. done
[DerekGermano] Will MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS be coming to DVD
any time soon?
[michaela] Murder on the Orient Express will be a great title on
DVD....no firm plans just yet.
[martinb] I would like to add that my DVD release schedule changes
so drastically each month that it's difficult to predict when titles
will appear. I think it's important to point this out because it's
one of the reasons we are being cautious about predicting release
dates. It's for all the usual reasons: legal clearances, the search
for bonus materials, filmmaker input, etc etc.
[Scott_J] Thanks for coming tonight. Now that you've released the
Naked Guns (which are great discs BTW), any plans for a DVD release
of the Police Squad series? Again, thanks.
[michaela] No plans for Police Squad but look for the Airplane 1
with commentaries on 10/24 done
========== Group Question from Paramount ==========
[michaela] What did you guys think of Chinatown?
[Scott_J] Commentaries?? Ooh, thanks.
[Mark_Basile] i love Chinatown. Excellent transfer.
[Brian_Dery] Chinatown was great
[Scott_C] Chinatown was TERRIFIC!
[Neil_Bulk] Chinatown is a great movie, and the DVD is wonderful.
Thanks for including the original mono soundtrack.
[Henry_Carmona] good transfer
[Lane] good job!
[Joey_Nazzari] chinatown was terrific
[JohnRyan] great ...why no Polanski commentary?
[Ike] Brilliant! Chinatown was great. Transfer looked almost
[IvanShreve] It's on my wishlist!
[ZacS] fantastic movie that needed to be available in a viable
format for us film students to be able to study with a smile on our
[MichaelS] I have the original 6 Star Trek movies in a collectors
set (on VHS) will there be a simular set with DVD? And to comment,
please emulate XFiles with ST:TNG's release.
[michaela] We're considering a Star Trek Movies gift set...stay
tuned for more info.
[Lane] First off, thank you for taking the time to join us tonight.
I was just wondering if you have set a release date for Star Trek:
The Motion Picture. And if you cant tell us the exact date, could
you give us a rough estimate on street date?
[michaela] We're looking at a release in the first half of 2001.
[Jason_Hughes] What can you tell us about the DVD of The Virgin
Suicides? Also, count me in for DVDs of Polanskis The Tenant (loaded
please) and Veronique. Thanks fror coming.
[michaela] The Virgin Suicides is slated for release this year and
will be enhanced with special features that until we officially
announce the title later this month must remain TBA...it does have
some great stuff on it.
[FinnAnthony] Following the success and record breaking sales of "The
Matrix" DVD, which is currently the most successful title in
DVD format's history, do you anticipate the same success for your
upcoming release of "Mission: Impossible 2," which comes
out on Nov. 7?
[michaela] We anticipate great things from MI2...the movie so lends
itself to the DVD audience. The film delivers on so many levels that
it would be a fantastic disc even without the special features that
we've created which will blow you away. John Woo was so terrific in
helping us create a spectacular disc...he devoted 7 hours to us on
Father's Day to record commentraies and interviews, We shot him in
Hawaii while filming his new movie, Windtalkers.
========== Group Question from Paramount ==========
[RonEpstein] I want to stop here for a second. Someone reminded me
that Paramount asked your opinion on a Star Trek NG boxed set. I
will open the channel so you guys can give some input.
[Chris_M] Definately a box set! That would be awesome!
[NateThompson] please follow fox's lead w/ the xfiles!
[Noels] We would LOVE one.
[NedVogler] sounds good to me! I'd certainly buy a season at a time
[Joey_Nazzari] Season Box set for episodes is a MUST
[Jason_Hughes] A season at a time please, for about $130.00
[Arthur] I will buy all TNG box sets.
[SteveBlair1] 4 per disc, definitely!
[Frank_Sesma] awesome series. But please pack as many episodes per
[JeffKleis] DS9 first!
[James_Luke] BIG box set PLEASD
[Henry_Carmona] My god we would love you guys to death!!
[RobWilley] Gentlemen, I would like to ask about Sunshine. I expect
this tremendous film to get a lot of recognition come awards time.
The catalogue inserted in the Braveheart disc said Sunshine would be
released "Fall '00". Is this still the case or can we
expect a delay on this title until after the awards season? Thanks!
[michaela] Look for Sunshine sometime in the first half of 2001.
[TimFlavin] Will there be anything included with the announced
Cheech & Chong movies, like maybe a commentary or interview with
Cheech Martin and Tommy Chong? Or anything other than the typical
trailer that has been announced?
[michaela] We're working on Cheech & Chong right now. There
will hopefully be some very hilarious commentaries.
========== Group Question from Paramount ==========
[michaela] What do you guys think of our DVD offer in the new
Braveheart catalog...buy 4 get 1...buy seven get 2 free. done
[TimFlavin] Destroy the product to cut the UPC, no thanks
[SteveBlair1] The offer is useless if you have to cut up the cover
insert. Put the pop's inside the booklets
[GregStaten] I like it, but please let us send copies of the
original receipts. I need 'em for tax purposes.
[Chris_M] We hate destroying the packaging!
[hakan_pow] It's not worth it when the you have to cut the UPC out
of the cover.
[Jason_Whyte] I would like it if there was a removable sticker of
some sort on the box. I will NOT remove the UPC by cutting up the
[JesseLeonard] Gotta love free stuff!
[RonEpstein] Thanks, guys. Smeone mentioned that Fox puts their UPC
on the insert - not on the boxes. Understand, people are very
particular about destroying their DVD boxes. Just a suggestion to
Paramount. That's what we are here for. What can members do so they
don't have to destroy the UPC on the box?
[michaela] Thank you for your comments...you guys are really
passionate about the box art...it's food for thought and I'll talk
to our creative people to see how, on a go forward basis, we can
[DanR] On behalf of all DVD fans, I ask what you can tell us about
the status of Indiana Jones on DVD? Might we see something for the
20th anniversary of Raiders next year? (PS I already have the MI2
DVD on order. ;) Thanks
[michaela] Thanks for you order on MI2...I'm sorry to say that I
have no definitive answer for you on Indiana Jones at this time.
[RonEpstein] Let me stop for a moment...Michael Arkin needs to
leave, but Martin will stay a bit longer. I want to thank, on behalf
of everyone here, Michael Arkin for being here.
[michaela] I'm going to say thank you to everyone. It's been fun
and informative. See you in the Fall.
[RonEpstein] Martin will be with us for another 15 minutes, so
[Anders_Runestad] Hello! Thanks so much for your excellent DVD
output and for being with us. I would greatly love to see Pretty In
Pink and Lady In a Cage come to DVD (and please allow me to put in a
plug for previously-mentioned Once Upon a Time In the West). Any
current plans on those titles?
[martinb] I wish there was! Once Upona Time is one of my personal
favorites. In some ways there's an embrassment of riches and we have
to pick and choose according to the many variables. Sorry none of
them looks like any time soon. That said, I think you will see a
ramping up of our releases through neext year. We've already begun
boostin g titles over last year. But everything takes resources -
got to the good transfer above all!
[NateThompson] thanks for coming tonight. i was wondering if you
could comment on the lack of a DTS soundtrack on the upcoming MI:2
disc (as it supported dts in the theaters) and if this will be the
general trend on Paramount releases (no DTS soundtracks) in the
upcoming year. Thanks again for setting this chat up.
[martinb] Regarding DTS, this has been an open question for some
time. I don't have any comment pertaining to MI2 because we've
discussed it as a general policy thing. It's hard to say - I think
the jury is open on whether or when we get into DTS. Disk space has
always been a major consideration. Regarding 2 disk sets, we haven't
got any in the works but the industry seems to be going that way so
it may occur next year if there's an appropriate title for it.
[Mark_Walker] Any chance of seeing Harrison Ford's version of
SABRINA or SHIRLEY VALENTINE? ..and thank you very much for coming
[martinb] Love em both but if it's scheduling questions, Michael is
the best authority on that. Actually this week turned out to be a
bad week for the chat since we just turned next year's release
schedule upside down again. I don't know if either of these titles
is planned any time soon.
[david_coleman] Are there any plans to revisit some of your
previously released titles e.g. Jack Ryan Trilogy, Footloose?
[martinb] If you're asking whether the Jack Ryna titles could be
special editions, I think the answer is No. If you're asking whether
we'd do anamorphic for non-anamorphic titles, then the answer may be
[danpk] First, I wanted to thank Paramount for their commitment ot
anamorphic enhancement of your feature film releases...my question
is this...do you have plans to standardize anamorphic (like Warner
and Anchor Bay) features, like trailers, menus, and extra features?
[martinb] Great. Actually I think it's in the area of transfers
that we're proudest. We've taken some stick for not enough extras
but the transfers are always our first priority and we've been
vindicated with QCs that cut out any bugs. We get very very few
consumer complaints. To answer your question, I don't know but I'd
say that the answer is No to doing anamorphic on bonus features. At
least for the time being. Wow, I didn't know Anchor Bay did that!
[Mark_Basile] Thanks for coming Martin. I really do wish Paramount
would begin to use DTS sound. That said, is " Foul Play"
in the works for 2001?
[martinb] Foul Play - I doubt it. But I'm actually making a list
here of the requests. I think it's fair to say that medium to large
titles like this will stand the best chance of a release next year.
Smaller titles are hard to support from a business pov and the
blockbusters are category unto themselves where we try to stagger
[Romier_S] thanks for coming, I dont know if this was asked earlier
but I was wondering if there were any plans for more Eddie Murphy
movies such as Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop trilogy and
especially Eddie Murphy Raw and Delirious! You guys and this forum
[martinb] Might see one of the Eddie Murphys next year
[Pete_M] Thanks for coming..... What are your thoughts (or plans)
on rental pricing for DVDs? Please say no way!
[martinb] Talk about throwing me a curve ball. Actually, as a
studio publicist I'd always duck that one anyway. Sorry guys that's
a no comment, but you shouldn't read anything into that!
[SteffM] Hi! One of my all-time favourite movies happens to be
BROTHER SUN SISTER MOON (1973) by Zeffirelli. Any chance of a DVD
soon? Thanks for putting the French-language tracks most of the
[martinb] What about the fact that we put out Romeo and Juliet - I
must have had a ton of requests for that title (coulda been the same
guy!!!). Sorry about your title though - I don't know it but I'd
expect it to be well down the list. With older catalog titles we're
focusing on the classics - like White Christmas which is coming out
this November 21 and 1980s recent classics like American Gigolo
(recently out), the Cheech and Chong movies.
[Chris_M] Re: Pricing. I live in Canada and the prices for
Paramount titles are too high compared to other companies! Even the
new releases are at least $5 more. Are there any plans on
re-visiting pricing on all Paramount titles? Espcially titles with
few or no features? Thanks.
[martinb] I think you're victims of your exchange rate, sorry.
They're an exact translation right now. If we lowered the price we'd
have the US impoprting them! So please don't talk about lowering US
prices (that's a joke, ok?). done
[Keith_H] Any chance we will see Waynes World and Waynes World 2 in
the near future. Thanks.
[martinb] Wayne's Wolrd 1 and 1 are currently being considered for
next years' schedule.
[Jason_Whyte] Hey guys. 16x9 widescreen enhancement aside, do you
plan to mandate a STANDARD ASPECT RATIO FRAMING on widescreen
releases in the future? I ask this because I feel that to fully
experience the widescreen aspect ratio on DVD, that it should be
EXACTLY the same as the cinematic theatrical ratio, which is 2.40:1
for scope anamorphic releases, and 1.85:1 for spherical flat
releases. Many of your titles have not been at these correct
[martinb] Not really my area. I'd have to say that we wouldn't
mandate it. I'd probably have to ask our Digital Mastering guys
since titles vary so much. I'm not ducking this but perhaps I could
follow up with Ron and get you a statement later. It'svery complext.
That's why we never elaborate on the package.
[JohnGilmore] I gotta ask about "Mommie Dearest"...any
[martinb] Mommie Dearest is also being considered for this coming
year. Hey that's sounding positive even if vague.
[ParkerClack] Braveheart was one of the best looking DVDs I have
seen done. Care to comment on the amount of time Paramount has to
spend on getting a film to disc? That is with all the legal issues
addressed, etc. No red tape. BTW, thanks for coming tonight.
[martinb] 20-24 weeks if there's no remastering of the original
film elements (which there was in the case of Braveheart,a s you
probably know we did a high def).
[ChrisCook] Hi! This was for Jeff because he did the interview with
Digital Bayou. Will "MacGyver" be released on DVD, and
video? What's happening with that? Is there some way you can get
that out faster? Thank you for staying this long.
[martinb] Jeff says we're currently evaluating our TV product for
DVD release. There hasn't been the level of detail just yet to
identify titles. We have of course acquired the CBS TV library
[JungWoo] I came in late, so I don't know if it was asked before.
But I'd like to see more Bertolucci movies - The Conformist and 1900
in particular. Any plan? And is a rumor that Sunset Blvd is in the
[martinb] I can confirm that Sunset Blvd. IS in the works. The
Bertolucci movies are possible contenders - as celebrated classic
foreign films - however 1900 may present special probalems because
of its running time. There have been a number of requests lately for
[ThomasHart] Thanks for coming and chatting tonight! I love old
horror films and I wonder is there any chance of some Hammer titles
in the future, like "Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell",
"Captain Kronos", or "The Man Who Could Cheat Death"?
[martinb] Believe it or not, they were on the schedule at one point
but dropped off, so yes, we are aware of them and theye are being
[garyt] Any vintage sci-fi in the works, such as "When Worlds
Collide", "I MArried A Monster From Outer Space", "Conquest
of Space" etc.?
[martinb] Sorry - can't be as positive about these. Maybe When
Worlds Collide but the others may be too small.
[JeffKleis] I realize that you don't know when Lucas will let you
do Indiana Jones, but why wasn't it released with last year's
remastered VHS? Of course, I do seem to be detecting a pattern here
regarding Lucas and DVD :( When we do see Indy, I heard a rumor that
we will see Young Indiana Jones DVDs at the same time. Can you
confirm/deny this, and tell us when there will be more Young Indy
[RonEpstein] Any little hint on Indiana Jones would be a real treat
Martin. This is a #1 request.
[martinb] We're undecided whether to release more Young Indys on
tape, however I don't see it where we'd link the film DVDs to the TV
series. Maybe they could conceivably be released around the same
time, but we'd never link them in any other way. Ron, to be frank,
Indiana Jones aint' anytime soon, sorry. It's going to take a whole
year to prep them at the very least!
[RonEpstein] Well THAT is definitive news that will squelch many
rumors., Thanks Martin
[Frank_Sesma] Hi!, I saw that David_Coleman asked earlier about "Footloose"
but I didn't see you comment on that one so i'll just quickly bring
it up again since it was an 80's fav. of mine! :) Also, do you guys
have the rights to "Prayer for the Dying" and "Man
Called Horse" for a dvd release? I searched imdb.com but
couldn't make heads or tails of the current owner. Thanks for
tonight's chat !!!
[martinb] We're evaluating Footloose -it's a priority but
complicated for reasons I can't go into.... A Man Called Horse is
part of the CBS merger and we're still evaluating all that before we
get into the specifics. Too early. A Prayer for the Dying isn't on
the schedule at the moment. Will make a note of it.
[RobCaianiello] Good Evening, since you guys are focusing on
Classics what about Saturday Night Fever and Grease?
[martinb] You'll have to forgive me but these are reaaaaaaly
complicated. Both of them. Trust me, we'd love to put them out but
we're having to wait. I can't elaborate, sorry.
[RonEpstein] Martin... On behalf of everyone here... Including my
partner, Parker Clack and moderator Ned Vogler...We Thank You and
Paramount for this chat. Please - make this a regular visit. We'd
love to talk to you again.
[martinb] It's been great. I'd like to do these more often and
maybe that's the way we can get around the being vague about what's
coming out. Again, I do read the strings on the forum site and we do
take suggestions on board. I hope to see a bunch of you in November?
[ParkerClack] Thanks for taking the time to put out some great
looking discs too.
[RonEpstein] We will see you in November.
