If you happened to read a post on Jake Watch earlier this evening, PLEASE IGNORE IT. I'm not totally sure what's going on, but apparently it was definitely not the worst case scenario, as I had feared. It's entirely possible no one even read it and now everyone is confused with all the secrecy. So, don't worry about it! :)
Something you should worry about? HOW MUCH PARAMOUNT PICTURES SUCKS. It's probably old news to all of us by now that the DVD of Zodiac, which will hit American stores in a little over a week, has no extra features. At all. None. Not even a trailer. Hell, my copy of The Little Rascals ("That wasn't sand; that's kitty litter!") at least has a fucking trailer. Apparently Zodiac will come with trailers for OTHER DVD's, including (wait for it) the Special Edition of Zodiac. (Which comes out in 2008 and has the decency not to feature that picture of Jake on the cover where he looks like he's a few cards short of a full deck.) This the worst merchandising trick I've ever heard of, even worse than the Special Edition of Jarhead which was, like, released in secret and cost 1000 times the price of a normal DVD.
So this post is just a reminder to all of you that Paramount was once mean to me and I don't think Jake will be offended if you wait and only buy one version of the DVD. In fact, Jake Watch will be proud of you. Be an informed buyer, America. Paramount is not working for you! But Jake Watch is. Over and out.
