The Council Needs Your Artistic Talent!

Have you checked out our multimedia section? There’s some great stuff there…but our wallpaper and screensaver sections are empty. And our fan art section has one measly (albeit extremely lovely) picture in it. Come on folks! If you have any fan artwork, please submit it! And if you have any wallpapers or screensavers, please add your link to it in the multimedia section (if you don’t have a place to host it, go ahead and send it to me and we’ll host it here.)

P.S from Hermitt – there will be coming soon some CoE original wallpapers/screensavers from me.

DVD Craziness

I’m half-way disappointed by this decision, but the extended DVD version (that is, the one releasing in November) will be rated R. Sucks that not everyone can watch this now.

Bet you can’t buy just one! (Version, that is…)

The Digital Bits tells us that we might have to save up to buy BOTH versions of the DVD’s this August and November. Read why at their latest update!
