  1. Thank You / Chris Wallace Album Release Week

    Thanks so much for your support of Chris Wallace. The feature that you did for us really worked out well! I wanted to reach out to you because Chris’ album, Push Rewind, comes out today and his single “Remember When (Push Rewind)” is a free download on iTunes this week. It would be really cool if you could send out a tweet today for us including @ChrisWallace101, mentioning that his single is free on iTunes + the album is available now, and this link takes them to both the free single and the album download: http://bit.ly/pushrewind

    Thanks so much for your support and we look forward to continuing to work together in the future!

  2. Phil!! Thanks so much for the FANTASTIC review of “Bear Hunt!” The write-up was a total joy to read, it made our day.

    Where are you based out of?? We’ll get you on the list if we’re ever in town!

    Warmest, Patrick

  3. THANK YOU for the great review of MIMESIS Phil. I agree with you and hope that your blog can help bring the film to an even broader audience or motivate others to help promote it. Cheers!

  4. Phil, thank you SO much for the amazing review of “In a Hearbeat!” Maybe I will do an album of jazz standards for kids someday. So glad you dig the record. These songs are near and dear to me. My drummer and bass player are well-versed in jazz! Paper Moon is a song I first learned in 7th grade chorus and then later learned on guitar in college. It’s always been a fave. Cool that your a drummer! Thanks again and if I’m ever in NC for a show, I’ll keep you posted!–Laura

  5. Hey Phil. Thank you very much for the brilliant review on ‘Ethereal Ash’. You have beautifully noticed so many aspects of the song that it makes us feel proud today…:) We will be ready with a new track by Mid – Feb 2015 and definitely will be sent to you.
    Keep up this great work and have a killer week ahead.
    Best Regards

  6. Thank you so much for focusing on packaging when you review things. That is definitely an area that is really neglected in most reviews. I really appreciate your attention to detail. Compact packaging is really essential in this day and age of limited shelf space.

    • It really is important. In some cases such as the releases from Shout! Factory and Timeless Media Group, the smarter, ergonomic packaging is the norm. So I don’t mention it. But in others such as Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.: The Complete Series, it is very important to note, especially with that one being a re-issue. I’m sure it will become increasingly important as time passes and other pieces get released. I even think BD packaging is better than DVD.It’s another reason I only buy Blu-ray if I can.

  7. Thank you so much for your review of the Gomer Pyle re-release set. I was trying to determine whether I should purchase the 2008 version or the 2015 version. Your fantastic review of the differences between the sets was very helpful. I am still disappointed in Paramount for taking out all of the parts where Jim Nabors sings. What a tremendous voice and I would have liked to see those parts included.
