OK - well the DVD turned up last week - Toshi at CDJapan was very helpful :)

as to the DVD - well the film is great :)

the 'extras'?

# the good news - there are 4 or 5 'extras' :)

# the bad news - nothing new/additional - the 'extras' consist of the trailers (ie bits of the film) and a few songs (ie bits of the film) - just a glorified scene selection thingy really (and there already is a scene selector)...

so the extras aren't extras at all :(

missed opportunity :|

hi. i am japanese and trying to understand what members are saying in English in New World Towers.
could somebody please tell me what Damon is saying when they are playing my terracotta heart and he is mentioning about Graham?
I can hear ”my terracotta heart is very much about my relationship with Graham for me. and he has got a little bit of SOMETHING at the end of 5 days of recording session and i felt 'here we go'. i couldnt hear the SOMETHING part. so please tell me, if somebody can. thanks.

Is there anywhere online where I can view that part of the video? As I don't have access to the full New World Towers film. Thanks.

After telling myself no single disk Blu Ray with no real extra's was worth just over £40 quid which includes the postage, I ordered it last night as couldn't bare the thought of a Blur Blu Ray existing and not owning it.

Well my Blu Ray copy arrived last week and as already mentioned the extra's are non exist. Picture and sound quality are of a good standard and nice and vibrant, but anyone who has seen this being streamed or on the cinema will already know this. Although in places it did seem a tad grainy.

So yeah, a huge missed opportunity, why this couldn't have included the Hong Kong gig I will never understand. Nice to have it in the collection tho.

Fuck the Hong Kong gig, I want to see Hyde Park. That was my first ever Blur show and one of my favourite days in my life.
