Deal: Dead Like Me: The Complete Series DVD
space
Empress Eve   |  @   |  
space

The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is Dead Like Me: The Complete Collection on DVD for only $29.99 (that’s 57% off the list price of $69.98).

This collection includes both seasons of the former ShowTime series, as well as the more recent direct-to-DVD sequel Dead Like Me: Life After Death. This release also comes with deleted scenes, cast commentary, and a photo gallery, as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette. There’s also “The Music of Dead Like Me,” “Dead Like Me…..Again,” and “Putting Life Into Death” featurettes.

Created by Bryan Fuller, this series centers on George (Ellen Muth), an 18-year-old girl who dies and becomes a grim reaper, where she helps the souls of newly dead move on to the afterlife, though she is stuck in this world unable to move on herself. The show was able to cleverly combine humor with drama, as George reluctantly performed her reaper duties while trying to hold down her day job at a temp agency. George learns the way of the reaping undead from her fellow reapers, lead by taskmaster Rube, wonderfully played by Mandy Patinkin.

MP3 Deal: Van Halen’s ‘Van Halen II’
space
Empress Eve   |  @   |

Today’s MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon is Van Halen‘s Van Halen II for only $2.99 and allow me to stress that if you do not have this album, it is well worth this low price so grab it today while it’s on sale!

Here’s where I justify the cost: MP3 songs are typically 99 cents, therefore for Van Halen II to be worth the price, you need at least 3 songs worth having: “Somebody Get Me A Doctor,” “DOA,” and “Beautiful Girls” — BAM! Yeah, I go right for the heavy stuff, but there’s plenty of lighter tracks on the album like “Dance The Night Away,” “Women In Love,” and the cover song “You’re No Good” (which was a hit for Linda Ronstadt in the 1970s).

Still need convincing to shell out $3 of your hard-earned money? Umm, it’s David Lee Roth era VAN HALEN! It’s guitar virtuoso Eddie Van Halen shredding it up in 1979 — plus, check out his 1-minute classical guitar solo “Spanish Fly”!

MP3 Deal: William Shatner’s ‘The Transformed Man’ For $1
space
Empress Eve   |  @   |

Most people know William Shatner for his iconic role as James T. Kirk, the Captain of the USS Enterprise on the 1960s TV series Star Trek (and its subsequent movies). The actor went on in the 1980s to popularize the title character on TV’s TJ Hooker and today he’s a favorite on the show Boston Legal, where he plays law firm partner Denny Crane. Oh, and let’s not forget his most-seen persona as The Priceline Negotiator in the Priceline commercials.

While everyone knows William Shatner the actor, how many people are familiar with William Shatner the music artist? I’m guessing not many. Now’s your chance to check it out, because Amazon’s MP3 album deal of the day is William Shatner’s The Transformed Man for only 99 cents (discounted price is for today only).

The Transformed Man, released in 1968, was Shatner’s first foray into music and contains six tracks of the actor performing spoken word versions of some popular tunes of the time like The Beatles’ “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” and The Byrds’ “Mr. Tambourine Man.” Most of the songs are accompanied by dramatic (and … I … mean … dramatic) readings from the works of William Shakespeare against psychedelic orchestrations and definitely what sounds like the Star Trek television series soundtrack. Shatner took the opportunity to juxtapose classic literature with modern-day poetic lyrics, and til this day, stands by this experimental endeavor.

Today’s spotlight MP3 album deal of the day at Amazon is Whitesnake by the band Whitesnake for only $1.99.

Former Deep Purple lead singer David Coverdale formed Whitesnake in 1977 and when the band transitioned from blue-rock to hard rock with 1984’s Slide It In they began to enjoy some moderate success. But it was their self-titled 1987 album that was the major commercial success, earning them a spot in the 1980’s hair metal pantheon alongside the likes of Motley Crue and Poison.

Two dollars is an awesome deal for the nine tunes — most of them hits — from the band’s most popular album. “Still Of The Night,” “Here I Go Again,” and “Crying In The Rain” are worth the discount price alone. Grab it while you can, because it will mostly like go up to nine bucks after today.

space

The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon is The Chronicles of Narnia Blu-ray Bundle for $29.99 (down 58% from $70.98).

This bundle, being sold exclusively through Amazon, contains the Blu-ray editions of Disney’s The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian.

Based on the books by C.S. Lewis, the Narnia movies are fantasy adventures that follow the four Pevensie children to the magical world of Narnia. In 2005’s The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, the inhabitants of Narnia — mythical creatures and animals that can speak — live under the tyrannical rule of the evil White Witch, who keeps the land in a perpetual state of winter. The coming of the children prompts the return of Aslan the Lion, which threatens the Witch’s reign. In Prince Caspian, it’s been a year since the children returned home to England, but it’s 1,300 years later in Narnia, where the corrupt King Miraz has usurped the throne from its rightful heir, Prince Caspian. In this darker sequel, the children return to Narnia to find it vastly different from the place they remember.
