James Bond Ultimate DVD Box Set

So it’s the ULTIMATE James (http://www NULL.ambardia NULL.com) Bond box set. It’s not out in the U.S. yet, but it will probably cost about 500 bucks. *sigh* I wonder if you even need any other movies if you own this puppy?!

Probably since the early 80’s I have wanted a complete collection of James (http://www NULL.ambardia NULL.com) Bond films. I hooked up two VCR’s together in our living room and made my parents rent all of the movies which I painstakingly copied. (Yeah, child pirate — but they were for my own personal viewing: not for profit. At least, that’s what I tell myself so I can sleep at night!)

Since, we’re on the subject of Bond, I’d also be interested to read The Monneypenny Diaries :The Moneypenny Diaries (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/exec/obidos/redirect?tag=blogferret-20%26link_code=xm2%26camp=2025%26creative=165953%26path=http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/gp/redirect NULL.html%253fASIN=0719567424%2526tag=blogferret-20%2526lcode=xm2%2526cID=2025%2526ccmID=165953%2526location=/o/ASIN/0719567424%25253FSubscriptionId=0EMV44A9A5YT1RVDGZ82)

Of course, this thing coud be a load of dime store crap, I suppose. There are a bunch of freaks out there who are convinced that there was a “real” James (http://www NULL.ambardia NULL.com) Bond. Now, I am not an expert, but I am fairly sure that most of the information in the Bond novels was purely fictitious. I do know Ian Fleming did work in British Intelligence, but I believe he admitted himself to making Bond and his world rather sensational. So this book, ostensibly Moneypenny’s diary, while it makes references to real events, cannot possibly be anything but an interesting read. The freaks who thought otherwise, however, were shamefully encouraged by the book’s publishers. The same people published Bridget Jones’ Diary. Thing is, I don’t want to read a bunch of insipid crap about unrequited love… I want to read a spy novel. I suppose I’ll have to read the thing and find out.

    Bah, I’m still mad at the Bond people for sacking Pierce Brosnan. He was my favorite Bond after Sean Connery.

    BTW I tried posting a comment in your photo section but I don’t know what happened to it. Anyway, I like your stuff. I adore fused glass :-)
