The entitlement here today is suffocating.


Has there been any news on Ford's The Long Voyage Home? It seems like it's about time for that one to get announced, despite its somewhat middling reputation. I actually consider it a top tier Ford, so they'd sell at least one copy!

In related news, I sent my wife an email a few hours ago and she still hasn't responded yet. Does anyone here know what her problem is?

Did she tell you she'd respond today? Because if she did, divorce her, unforgivable

It would not be so irritating if they hadn't TOLD us the announcements would be today.
You've got 33 posts on this forum and you're really increasing your ratio of how many of them are gripes about title announcements. Sit down and relax. Try to find some perspective. Go outside.

I figured someone else would post this ... They said on Facebook that the announcements are coming tomorrow now.

They should set announcement date as 16th of every month and then surprise us once in a while by announcing on 15th...

For the record I'm not griping so much as I am legitimately baffled by what kinks would postpone announcements by one day. In the end the announcement is of little consequence to the release itself, obviously.

They're probably a bit late on finalizing the artwork for Il Sorpasso. Or something.

1. They're waiting on final cover art or specs for one or two of the titles and would prefer the announcement to be complete if all it takes is waiting a day
2. They're having backend IT issues making it difficult to update their website that they know they could resolve by tomorrow afternoon
3. The person who'd typically be pushing these changes through and updating the templates for each film's page is unexpectedly gone for the day for personal reasons
4. They need to wait to find out for certain whether Title X will be coming in September or will need to wait for October's announcements
5. They hate Frumaster and want to see him mad (and who can blame them?)

There's 5, and I'm sure there are more possibilities

We should take a poll to see which one of these is more viable.

She says she told me them yesterday but I just wasn't listening and now I'll have to wait to find out with the rest of the world, whenever they're good and ready. Man, what is her deal?
