As people who aren't me may already have heard, Daria: The Complete Series is coming out May 11!

Not surprisingly, they've replaced some (much?) of the music. (http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Daria-DVD-Plans/13010, http://www.the-wildone.com/dvdaria/#bignews -- oh hey, the official release sheet about it) Which, frustratingly, means I couldn't get rid of my original tapes, although from the sounds of the "extras" list, I could at least dump the several Daria Day marathons that I'm only keeping for the Daria & Jane intros.

To buy the musically-compromised DVDs, or to take comfort in a scratchy and disorganized set of original-broadcast VHS... that is the question....

I do wonder, what is it about owning rights to music that impairs higher brain functions, like basic math? "This music is so valuable, I will set the price for its use higher than you can afford!" "Well, we'll just replace it with something cheaper then, and you'll get nothing, thanks anyway." Wouldn't it be better for the profit margin as well as the art (if I can dare mention such a thing in the context of music rights) to set the price at something people will, you know, actually pay?
