Love is a song that never ends

bunny_hugger asked ``How is the Bambi DVD?'' -- US stores apparently respecting the shelf date for the Special Edition DVD, a concept foreign to Singapore stores. The movie itself, in a word: perfect. In several words: pretty near perfect.

Disney's crack team of packaging engineers nearly beat me this time: the cardboard sleeve -- itself in a (resealable) bag from HMV -- was shrink-wrapped. The cardboard sleeve has a notch cut out to ``open here'', which you can do if you overcome the adhesive strength of some gooey drops inside. This lets you see a more elaborate title page; the DVD case itself slides out from the top or bottom of the sleeve, so the ``open here'' is just a decoy. The DVD case is also shrink-wrapped, for your protection.
