  1. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    OK, so we went through the scene setups/modes and the Tears excerpt didn't have all those little dots/pixels amidst the graininess in a couple of them, So all is not lost. One of the modes even added a sepia quality to the picture. Still don't get why the concert would look fine but the Tears feature would have all those little outs/pixels, in any mode.
  2. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    So, others with the Blu-ray also have a grainy Tears. Why in the world would the Blu-ray bonus feature be grainy and not the main show? I take it that the posted Tears excerpt was taken from the DVD?
  3. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    ^Indeed. And for the strings and sounds of the track to be on the home video release, and just her vocals missing- it's pretty bizarre (for those, and reasons previously noted). OK- I just checked the full "Tears" excerpt that was posted online, and it doesn't look grainy like mine does. Does anyone else's copy look very grainy vs. this?
  4. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    cosmic, I only watched that once, so don't recall exactly what was on it, I do remember the strings, but probably forgot the other LDLHA sounds that also were in there. I still find it hard to believe that it';s a copyright issues, given that she recorded the track herself and all of the other samplings - of tracks she didn't even record- that were credited through the years. I mean, even "If I Had a Hammer" plays over the credits! And she sings the snippet from "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend." Any ideas of why "Borderline" looks much clearer on the video that was posted? Or maybe I didn't notice it too was grainy when watching it.
  5. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Just watched it. Very enjoyable. I know the Tears... bit is supposed to look grainy and such, but the "Borderline" that was posted didn't look like it had that effect- did whoever posted it go in and clean it up? And it does sound like more of the music from LDLHA is present vs. what Showtime showed.
  6. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Got the Blu-Ray/CD combo at FYE- with the 10% discount for trying the membership, it was $19.07- not bad at all. However, per usual, some of the selections for the 14-track CD are It's also available as a 2-CD? i know the digital version has the whole show (as it is on the DVD/Blu-Ray).
  7. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    JR!- hey there. :) I haven't gotten it as of yet, so I'm not sure. Heck, I still haven't gotten MDNA Tour.
  8. WW=Wonder Woman, which had been mentioned earlier in the thread.
  9. The WW one is very nice. Cher also has one, but I enjoyed the WW one more. Will be interesting to see what they do with M's.
  10. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    So, "Borderline" (which indeed is glorious) is one of the extras? And, there's more LDLAH audio than what was in the Showtime thingie (or at least, it sounds like it).She only had about 1:30 oif it in the show, as it was, so while I would have liked to see it in tact for the official release,it's not like a huge part of the show was cut. Why it's so good to have YouTube for those things that don't end up on the official releases.
  11. She has a performance break, and then has four solo shows in late September/early October, and then a bunch of Liv On concerts thereafter.
  12. Olivia performed the last four nights. Kudos to this courageous and dedicated woman.
  13. Was "Don't Stop" really that bad?

    Not that bad- it's a fun, top-down, if toss away, album track, that was a mashup of the the themes in "Everybody," "Into the Groove" and "Vogue"- it just wasn't as strong or compelling.
  14. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Again, why would they have concerns with copyright issues for a song she actually recorded, and not songs she didn't or didn't write, that she performed or included samples of in past tours? Just Then again, that reaction would be fitting for other decisions made in her camp through the years.
  15. There's the walk, and also a "We Go Together" campaign to fight cancer. She's scheduled to start performing again next Thursday.
  16. LOL Was just saying that I'd be surprised if it was a copyright issue, especially being that she recorded LDLHA, released it as a single, etc. I forget- was "Lucky Star" cut from the Showtime edit? There was more of ITG than LS in the medley, anyhow, I believe..
  17. Look at all the clearances she got for the samples on the S&S DVD- not to mention when she performed other acts' songs on her tours. She recorded LDLHA, and there would be copyright/clearance issues for a DVD release? Any ideas if the the LAP performance is from Australia, or the one performed after the Paris incident?
  18. I watched it, and her part was cute, fun camp (song titles and Grease references). Olivia's Wellness Walk is scheduled for Sept. 17- why not shed a little love and light for those fighting with cancer, who have fought it, and their loved ones: https://secure.artezpacific.com/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?registrationID=1135864&langPref=en-CA#&panel1-2
  19. ^However, heritage/veteran acts- unless they pass on or another extraordinary circumstance occurs- do not get streamed like newer/more current acts. Thus, such acts are at a disadvantage on the multi-metric chart, in general. I pay much more mind to the Album Sales chart (listing it before the multi-metric one in my archive files), as it's the only fair comparison to what the BB 200 once was. The albums chart was always just based on one factor, unlike the Hot100, which was always a blend of multiple components. Billboard made a multi-metric chart because album sales had dropped, and that was a way to "inflate" the numbers for what it considers one of its "flagship" charts (I don't any longer, but that's here nor there).
  20. For heritage/veteran acts like Madonna, the Album Sales chart is more relevant than the multi-metric top 200 one as it is now. Even though album sales are not huge like they were, it's still a fair measure, rankwise, when comparing against past performance (newer releases, of course , won't have the longevity of her heyday, but still).
  21. Reminder that Olivia's cameo in the upcoming Sharknado is coming up. I've never watched those outrageous movies, but I may have to, at least, check out her part. (Her daughter also appears).
  22. Patrick Leonard's Instagram

    TB did utilize live instruments (guitar, keyboards, "Papa" strings, etc. etc.), but it wasn't as "musical" as LAP. I'd love for La Ciccone and Leonard to try working together now, to see what they could come up with.
  23. The best version of a 12-track RH album would be: 1. Living For Love 2. Devil Pray 3. Ghosttown 4. Hold Tight 5. Joan of Arc 6. Iconic 7. Heartbreak City 8. Inside Out 9. Wash All Over Me 10. Veni Vidi Vici 11. Messiah 12. Rebel Heart
  24. Per her Pocono Record interview, Olivia said her Sordid Lives character was the one she was least like.
  25. There's a statement from Olivia in the article, and then comments from loved ones, etc.: http://people.com/celebrity/olivia-newton-john-breast-cancer-totally-confident/
