In case you can’t wait to get in your orders for the Beatles CD remasters and the band’s branded version of Rock Band—and you are totally fine with paying $17.98, plus $3.97 in shipping costs, per compact disc—you can place your order for all the remastered albums today via the shop-at-home mecca QVC; just be warned that the orders for games and CDs won’t ship until the official release date of Sept. 9. QVC’s Beatles-branded shop also has some curios available, and while most of the offerings are pretty standard (sweatshirts, lunchboxes, etc.), there’s one thing that’s so breathtakingly “for the fans,” I had to share it:
A “limited edition jeweled box”—not the type that you would keep your remastered CDs in, I think—that’s supposed to resemble the Yellow Submarine, and covered in Swarovski crystals. And retailing for $76 (pre-shipping!). Sure, there are probably 700 people out there who will exhaust the run of this, but I thought semi-tacky “keepsakes” like the above were the sort of stuff the recession had stamped out?
