Armageddon is upon us! This is just in!

“Things are in disarray at the headquarters! Criterion staff is nowhere to be seen. Not even the always available Job Mulvaney! Upon inspection the Criterion Closet, the grail of all grail rooms has been cleaned out pretty much completely by a mob of angry and hot (aka. sweaty) Criterion customers. All is left is two Jellyfish Eyes and one Tiny Furniture. DVDs”
Even in an apocalyptic scenario, I refuse to believe one more person wanted Tiny Furniture than Jellyfish Eyes.

Only boxsets with no spine numbers, thus extending the wait for #1000 another month
I mean, we’re going to be making jokes about Spine 1000 speculation long after it’s actually announced, so this will have a lateral effect on the forum either way!

The question is whether this thread will get to 100 pages before Spine 1000 is announced

At this point, they are probably cleaning up the office. Dusting the shelves. Restocking the Bort nametags.

Someone remind me to stop refreshing criterion’s website by the time spine #1500 and #2000 come around.

Stuck in traffic as expected, though not going slowly enough that I can photoshop the forum into one of those "this is the last text he sent" memes

Shame on Criterion for not announcing on the 15th!

Shame on us for believing it will be announced on the 16th!

Not announcing on the 17th?! Thanks, Obama! ☹️

Criterion is apparently putting as much thought into that internet video essay than their Cluny Brown cover.
