DVD Beaver gone?

I just went to the website, and it's gone. There's a letter from Gary Tooze saying he's involved in a new Blu ray venture. Unfortunately, I can't find the home page. The reviews and comparisons were wonderful. Does anyone know about this?

I just saw this too....what I found most interesting was that they will supposedly be releasing Greed on BD in 2010....but probably an April Fool's joke....

Wait a minute -- what the? I thought this was for real... is this an April Fool's Joke?

Re: DVD Beaver gone?

and to think of all the times I used that website to bounce over to YesAsia, Amazon, Amazon.co.uk to make purchases.

if it's not an April Fool's Joke ... well that just pisses me off.

I admit it. I was completely suckered until I got all the way down to the newly-discovered 9-1/2 hour cut of "GREED". And I want to believe that!

I missed DVD Beaver's Blu-ray reviews. I'm GLAD they are BACK!

Ah. I'd settle for a decent DVD of Detour at this point.
