World Records and Old Records

What the?! Mass Breastfeeding World Record?! Count on the Pinoys for absurd World Records. Pinoys have this insatiable hunger for international fame and it shows with their choice of what record to break. The biggest kalamay, the longest puto bumbong, largest plate of Pancit Malabon, etc. and now, most number of moms breastfeeding?! I won't say "Now I've seen everything." evr since I saw Team America where a character says, "Now I've seen everything." and the other character counters with, "Have you ever seen a man eat his own head?"... Well, obviously, we haven't. But that record makes you come close to it... hmm... that didn't sound right.
For Star Wars news, this year on September 12 to December, we'll see the Original Trilogy on DVD as it was seen in the theaters in 1977. Read on!

From Star
Fans can look forward to a September filled with classic Star Wars nostalgia, led by the premiere of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy video game and the long-awaited DVD release of the original theatrical incarnations of the classic Star Wars trilogy.

In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release attractively priced individual two-disc releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Each release includes the 2004 digitally remastered version of the movie and, as bonus material, the theatrical edition of the film. That means you'll be able to enjoy Star Wars as it first appeared in 1977, Empire in 1980, and Jedi in 1983.

[ doc_title ] This release will only be available for a limited time: from September 12th to December 31st. International release will follow on or about the same day. Each original theatrical version will feature Dolby 2.0 Surround sound, close-captioning, and subtitles in English, French and Spanish for their U.S. release. International sound and subtitling vary by territory.

"Over the years, a truly countless number of fans have told us that they would love to see and own the original version that they remember experiencing in theaters," said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts and Senior Vice President of Lucasfilm Ltd. "We returned to the Lucasfilm Archives to search exhaustively for source material that could be presented on DVD. This is something that we're very excited to be able to give to fans in response to their continuing enthusiasm for Star Wars. Topping it off with a new interactive adventure makes September 12 a red-letter day for Star Wars fans."

Good news indeed! I'll be saving up on this new set! May the Force be with us!!! (Btw, yesterday was Star Wars Day. Unofficially. May the Fourth be with you! Hehehe!)
