For the month of December we have a new character showcase, but with some very familiar characters.  Please warmly welcome the gang as the antagonists might see them! :bestsharptooth The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the next season of the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

poke: Welcome to the world of compressed video. :p

Dual layer DVD's cost nothing to make (from a selling point of view).  All the dvds of the films you know and love out there are dual-layer.  About the only things that are single layers are the ones you burn yourself.  I know Universal isn't Disney but they squeeze 20 episodes into 8 gigs with no serious quality loss.  I bet if someone could check these LBT dvd's I'd bet they find a video bitrate that doesn't even fill 4 gigs (single-layer dvd).  Waste of space.

I agree with Petrie here 100%.  The videos are compressed to around 6gb.  They could be compressed 5 times more and there wouldn't be any noticeable quality reduction.  They're just a rip off.

Yes, to bad their interested in making as much money as possible.  But at least they didn't do only 3 episodes on a disk, so I guess that is 1 positive thing.

Okay, I've got it and am currently copying it onto my computer with Magic DVD Ripper.

Now, I'll just say this, if you thought the front cover was bad artwork, don't look at the back. -_-

I'll get the songs done soon.  Which means another 8 for my collection, some of which I know will be bad. :( (*thinking*Must remember, doing this for the fans. :))

Well, see ya later! :^.^:

I've noticed some imperfections myself but as always try to overlook them.  The only question I have is, who is this artist they hire?

Maybe some little kid.  I bet little kids would work pretty cheap.
