That would be really intense. And probably expensive. XD Oh man, Firefly's really good. Who are you Cosplaying from it?

I think you are the third person who has said they can't get the music out of their head. It really is addicting. The extended soundtrack came out yesterday, which I still need to get. But the DVD is pretty cheap. At Fred Meyer it was only 15$.

Actually the Extended Soundtrack did not come out yesterday. It was supposed to, but didn't for some reason. There's a chat with Darren Bousman (director) today so we'll see what is going on.

Oh, and no there are no easter eggs on the DVD. Everything is pretty stripped down as far as features and things go. There are many more things on the Blu-Ray than on the DVD. On the Blu-Ray there are deleted scenes, and sing-a-longs to a couple songs, "Legal Assassin" being one of them. I don't know where they are online, though.

Really? That sucks! I was gonna ask for it for my birthday. ~ ~ On another note though Rodney, they have a Repo! shirt at Hot Topic! You and I both seem to like getting shirts from things we like, so I thought I'd let you know. :0

I don't understand why they only put the special features on Blu-Ray. To make more profit? Not a whole lot of people own a Blu-Ray player, or can afford it or its disks. Before Youtube took it down though, I saw the deleted scene of Needle Through A Bug, which was cool. I wish the DVD had more to offer.

Well, you may be in luck, Marie. I just got back from the chat with Darren and Terrance, and they said that the extended soundtrack was delayed, but for good reason! It was actually demanded by more and more stores, so they had to keep printing more before they could ship them. So, they plan to have the extended soundtrack out by around Valentine's Day. And it will have around 40 tracks! Woo!

And yeah, I just went to Hot Topic yesterday and saw they had the barcode Repo! shirt, which I would have picked up in a heartbeat but they didn't have my size. Still, really awesome. I'm also hoping to see the Blind Mag shirt in store at some point. Mmmm....^_^

Blu-Ray is weird. I don't have it, don't know many people who do, but that is the new wave of technology, so I guess they are jumping on board.

Also, just a little note, and this is very important. Darren and Terrance REALLY REALLY want to make a sequel to Repo! In order to do that, though, they need to prove to the world that Repo! has a following...with money! lol So, in a week about 40% of the DVD's have been sold. That's huge! But here's the thing: the rest of them need to be bought up too. So if you haven't bought a copy of Repo! yet, try your best to get one. We are the people who will make the difference. The fan base is not massive, not enough for only a few people to buy and support the movie. We all need to. Let's get the sequel made!

Also, I will be working to coordinate another theater screening of Repo! soon, and maybe by then we can all come out, support and show off our cosplays! ^_^ Anyway, more news on that later.

Whoa really? That's awesome! I'm happy to see stores and the public are recognizing them. I'm totally going to get the extended version once it's out. Then there'll be even more songs to practice and sing.

I would have bought it, too. But I have no money. So I told Steven I wanted it for my birthday. Haah. They're coming out with a Blind Mag shirt? I think by now she's my favorite character, so I will definitely keep my eye out for that.

I have heard that they want to make Repo! a trilogy, which would make a lot of people happy. I hope that they get well known enough to continue making the films!

If it gets back into theaters around here, let me know! I really wanted to see it on the big screen. It would be really cool if everyone ended up dressing up for the event, too.

Yes! I love all the shirts and stuff. I got a copy of the movie and watched it the other day. I'm in love with it. Totally going to buy it as soon as I get paid. When are you guys planning on cosplaying? May I join your group?

It would be funny to make a music video riffing off addicted to the knife that was about being addicted to Repo....

Initially I was thinking of cosplaying Saffron (of Our Mrs. Reynolds and Trash), but I can't resist the outfit with the veil that Inara wears at the end of Trash......

@ Urahara - Haha, I don't mind! I don't think anyone else does, either. We're just kind of talking about it right now. But I really want to try to get Blind Mag done before Sakuracon this year.

@ Khalan - Oh my good golly gosh! That's really good! Haha, I love Pavi and Luigi.

If you don't come enter some of the Creation Station fan art contests I will hunt you down  :o

No seriously you should enter our mini-manga contest, make up a potential sequel to Repo or something. Have they hinted where they want to go with the storyline?
*squees with fanfic glee imagining*
Ya know, if there's enough interest I could see if I could add some kind of themed contest. One year I was able to add a Whedonverse-themed contest, tied in with Professor Toni Levi's keynoting on Buffy, and was able to get awesome Buffy schwag as prizes.......Has anyone talked to Relations about seeing if they might be able to get Repo schwag?

Khalan.. you should draw... haha I have a lot of ideas. The Repo Man about to take Blind Mags eyes, an aggitated Graverobber and Amber Sweet, Nathan and the Repo Man, etc etc. x.x; If you drew Graverobber though, he would definitely accept your tag if you tagged him on Myspace!

Courtesy of our dear Eve I successfully friended Sarah Brightman--oh and she's touring in Asia, if any KC forum members are in Japan or thereabouts--folks can arrange to go backstage to hang out with her afterwards--OMG I totally (after going to sleep after reading that last night) dreamt I was there backstage w/her in, of all places, Malaysia. It was fun having my dream-talk with her, yes I am that much a cheezy fangirl.

Okay so I watched on youtube an interview of Terrance Zdunich. He said  that there are some major differences from the stage to the screen, in part because with stage, you want to have some stand-alone, solo performances that give the audience a chance to pause and clap; but in a movie, those would stop the churning momentum, so they're omitted, even though some of them are some of Terrance's personal favorites.
That, of course, leads me jonesing to see the play (and hoping they make another road show).
Well I joined a Repo forum, and lo and behold someone had posted what they say is the 1st act of the play (not the road show of the movie, but its predecessor). I of course have no way to authenticate it, but heck yah I'm about to read it. Thought first though I'd share it with y'all (our little Zydrate Support Network):

^ That's interesting. Sounds like it is the script of the stage play. I know the very first incarnation of Repo! was a 10-minute play Terrance Zdunich and Darren Smith created called "The Necromerchant's Debt". It featured only about three songs, two of which were brought to the modern film version of Repo! So, it is interesting to see the stage play and how it has changed and how the movie changed from that.

And I would die to see Sarah Brightman in concert. She should come here, to the Arlene Schnitzer.

That is interesting! I knew of the 10 minute play, and I knew that the play and the movie itself were different. I'd really like to see the Road Show sometime.

I watched the movie again today with my girlfriend, and it was still just as good. I might watch it again tonight with my mother if she feels up to it. I also went clubbing last night for my birthday, and my makeup was complimented a lot, which is really exciting! I've also been talking to someone on the Repo! forums about Mag's eyes. And they've been talking to the people at FXEyes about it. They said that they'll send me pictures once they arrive. So even though I'm not the one receiving them, I'm still excited. XD

Sign up on the Repo! forums, post in this thread. It is the Oregon Army thread, so we can all get together and make plans for promoting Repo! locally with other Zydrate Junkies!

I can't find anything, but if you're really interested, they will be opening a Members Only section of the Repo! website soon. In that section they will be putting special things like sheet music, unreleased tracks, pictures and who knows what else. So, maybe they will have the script in there too.

If I still knew how to play clarinet and/or piano as well as I used to, it would be worth it to me to get the sheet music! Presently employed only 1/2 time, I'll have to look at the cost involved before committing.

Yeah, I definitely am looking forward to the Members Only section; the sheet music has my interest piqued. I can't read music, but with its release, chords can't be too far behind. I am already working on my cover of "Chromaggia", just catching notes by ear, but it will still be really nice to have the official notes for it and the other songs.

I haven't found any. I really want the Karaoke version of Chase the Morning, that's really the only one I can think of. That, and maybe At the Opera Tonight. But I think Chase the Morning is more probable.

Is it possible to own equipment or software that lets you take a fully-mixed track and then remove the lead vocals from it to create one's own karaoke version of a song? *is clueless but hopeful*

Ah, well I'm doing a metal cover, so I won't actually be hitting the notes that Sarah Brightman does, lol. I'll be doing metal vocals instead.

And there were a couple videos available on the Blu-Ray release of Repo! that were in sing-along version (I think that's the karaoke version you saw on yourtube), so at the moment I don't think there are more than a couple songs out there, but there may be more in the future.

And there were a couple videos available on the Blu-Ray release of Repo! that were in sing-along version (I think that's the karaoke version you saw on yourtube), so at the moment I don't think there are more than a couple songs out there, but there may be more in the future.
Wow, can't wait to hear it! Post it on your myspace?
Meantime the youtube one had no visual except the Repo logo. Is that how it is on the blu-ray?

Ohh wow. Yeah man! When you finish your version I definitely want to hear it!

Maan.. I think my favorite song is Everyone's a Composer. I love it! I can't get it out of my head and I keep replaying it. Anyone know if there's a download for it anywhere? Or do we have to wait for the extended soundtrack to come out?

Yes I love Giles. Though seeing him as Frank N Furter (and Amber Benson from Buffy as Janet) was a little wierd! I still was glad to see it though Anthony Stewart Head is more a handsome type than a pretty type. Having read in magazines for people living with HIV (I work for a doctor who specializes in HIV patients) that Amber speaks publicly about being a virgin (and not in the never-saw-Rocky way), it was amusing to see her sing "Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me". But we all knew they could sing from Once More with Feeling! :D

As for the blue-ray singalong--
One heart--Mark It Up!

As for "Everyone's a Composer"--never heard that. Deleted scene? I'm also certainly curious about "Needle from a Bug", wierd title....

Now I've been reading some fanfic on LJ--Is there any hinting anywhere in any canon that leads to all the femslash that's developing around Marni/Mag? Also, is there anything anywhere that identifies the mother of Luigi, Pavi, and Amber? Any possibility of Marni???

I'll be sure to get it to you when I'm done. ^_^

And yeah, "Everyone's A Composer" is just fantastic, so climactic and emotional.

It's pretty awesome, that song is Darren Bousman's favorite song, so there is more than a great chance that it will be on the extended soundtrack, when that comes out.

In the meantime, though, I can rip it from the DVD and get it to you. As long as you don't post it anywhere or pay me for it, lol.

"Everyone's A Composer" is a song included in the film. It is the scene right after "Chase the Morning", when Nathan comes home and finds Mag there. It is the song sung between Nathan, Mag, and Shilo.

As for "Needle Through A Bug", that is from a deleted scene, which is available on Blu-Ray and various spots on the internet. There is a whole subplot that was axed from the film, which I won't go into here, but that deleted scene and the song "Needle Through A Bug" really bring up some heavy elements in that deleted subplot. Things involving Marni and...yeah, I'll stop there, lol. If you're really curious, PM me about it.

And I don't read any fanfics so I don't know what is being imagined out there, especially involving Marni and Mag. Umm, they were best friends, Mag is Shilo's godmother. Anything else they write about is merely the creative license of the author.

And as for the mother of the Largo children, I am pretty sure it is not Marni. It does not signify who their mother(s) are, but they are all far too old for Marni to have been their parent. Luigi is in his thirties and Marni was the same age as Nathan if not younger (mid 40's) when she died. There is speculation about the Repo! forums, but I think that each of the Largo children probably has a different mother. Rotti wanted an heir more than anything else, and he had the money to make that happen, like a king of old, with several different women being surrogates of sorts.

Ohh really? That'd be awesome if you could! Can you exchange it through messenger or do we need to meetup to exchange it through a CD? :0

Also, I wanna know the subplot! I knew they cut out a huge chunk of the film involving something else, but I wasn't sure what it was. So you should PM me about it.

Ohhh man. Marni and Mag... that just isn't right. Sometimes people need to just calm down, and keep it to themselves, goodness. XD

I love Muppets.
Maybe Bimbo was some kind of Freudian slip given that Pavi is "the panty snatching" lol!
BTW OMG
I had not originally known Luigi was played by the guy who was Otis in Rob Zombie's nightmarish movies! I only saw the 1st one (my coworker showed it to my clients at work) oy vey he was quite effectively chilling, creepy, sadistic.
Yes please PM me re the Needle from a Bug subplot.
Okay I just didn't know it was called that, will need to watch that part again.
That is when Shilo is pleading with Nathan to save Mag and he's trying to get her to go back to her room and forget everything?
Yeah all different moms would make sense. In the play Pavi and Luigi and Rotti were brothers and Amber was Luigi's daughter, if I recall  correctly.
There was one *great* fanfic I read that was about what each of Rotti's kids were like in childhood and how they at young ages showed indications of how they'd be as adults.

Yeah, Bill Moseley (Luigi) is an amazing actor. You should see The Devil's Rejects, the sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses. If you thought he was scary in the first one, see the second. Truly terrifying.

I'll get that "Needle Through A Bug" description to you soon here.

And yeah, the part when Shilo is pleading with Nathan to save Mag is the part I was talking about.

More macros! lol
