Out of the Blue

Well, things are getting back to normal here after the storm. I mentioned we feel fortunate to have our power back, and reinforcing that was an update we got from our village yesterday saying that some folks may remain without power for "weeks," so we feel extra lucky to be restored (perhaps there's some reason for this, like we live on the same grid as the mayor). And just this morning we took a big step back to normalcy as the uprooted tree in front of our house was removed, so our walkway is clear once again. Oddly, this was a tree we think was planted by mistake on our curb, as we have plenty of trees, and we think it was supposed to be planted along the more barren curb across the street, so it's likely they won't even try to replace it.

So many questions, so few answers. Starting with even if Disney could make a deal with Fox to Blu-ray the original film, is the original film/negative in an usable state? Will Fox even be willing to make any deals? They strike me as the kind of company which might say, "We own it, screw you. We'll just keep releasing it as it is." Until we learn there are signed contracts saying otherwise, I'm going to assume that Fox will be an obstacle to anything I might want/like to see happen.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
