Eraserhead DVD in December?

The store at davidlynch.com now shows December as the release date for the Eraserhead DVD. Keep in mind that many dates have been given and past with no release, so I'd take this with a grain of salt. Lynch wants to make sure the disc is to the highest standards possible, so it'll be done when it meets his high standards, no sooner.

Jack Nance documentary available on VHS

"I Don't Know Jack," the documentary about the life and death of Jack Nance, is now available on VHS exclusively from Scarecrow Video. No word on a DVD release at this time. You can order the VHS from Scarecrow here.
