Top Secret, Ultra-Exciting, Leaked Paparazzi Footage

You would not believe what I found on the interwebs today: Top secret, ultra-exciting, leaked paparazzi footage of Sonlight's 2009 catalog ...over a month before the release date!

It's just a proof copy of the catalog, but I still can't believe someone got this footage out of the building <snicker>. How cool is that?



Want to get in on the firestorm of discussion that is sure to erupt because of this? Of course you do! So hop on over to the forums and pitch in your two cents... after you comment here first, of course <smile>.


In other news, Bo added a new feature to our package pages that I suggested. Naturally, I'm pretty excited.

Can you guess what we changed?


Okay, that's all for today. Just a few fun--or, at least, I think they're fun--things for you to view over the weekend.

See you all on Monday!

I am sorry but 14 seconds is just not enough - like hello! That's all some of us are going to see for months - on the far side of the world it takes a fair while to get the actual paper catalogue... You know that actual paper catalogue where the paper pages flip and flap and you can mark it up with an actual pen!

I love, love, love the pull down thing that shows all the items included in the package. I mean, love it! Good job!

Jamie Jo said...

You're the funny one. Always trying to get us rattled. Already I'm waiting with suspense to discover where my catalog will end up. Last year the mystery never was solved. I only got a copy when my order arrived. Sigh.

Jenny in Ca said...

I liked the leaked footage, you guys are a crack up!

Leslie said...

I'm cracking up!

I like the customize tab, but I really got a LOL out of the fact that the pic still has the unidentifiable art project/dehydrated chicken breast in the corner! LOL!

Luke said...

Jana, you are correct: The newly expandable collapsed "View the items included in this package" thingy.

Holli, the Customize tab has been in for a while... but isn't it great? (Don't worry: My dad just noticed it two weeks ago <smile>)

Robin, thank you so much! <smile>

Jenn, I'm glad people are getting excited! You only have to keep that up for another month... <smile>

Se7en, I know it's hard to wait. And I'm sorry it takes so long to ship these things to you. It's a bummer, and I wish we had teleportation options for our shipping <smile>.

Starrmom, I love it too! Glad I'm not the only one <smile>.

Jamie Jo, I'm so sorry that the mystery was never solved. May this year's catalog get right to your door <smile>.

Jenny, always glad to be able to give people a smile <smile>.

Leslie, I'm not sure if that image will be updated with GoLive... hmm... that's a good point. On the other hand, I think it's funny because that issue has been address so many times. People were really concerned <smile>.

Missus Wookie said...

Teleportation sounds good to me. Even though I won't need a new core until the Autumn I still want to read the new catalog... :sigh:

Karen Joy said...

OK, so I'm a little behind on things. Is the new catalog out? Or not? I could hop over to the forums and check... but I haven't been over there in months and it's easier to ask you!!!

We have our $$ (thank God!!!!) to buy a new Core, and I can't decide if I should just order it now, out of my impatience, or wait for the 2009 catalog.

Luke said...

Missus Wookie, I think this is the first time you've commented. Thanks, and welcome! <smile> I'm glad to hear you're excited about the catalog.

Karen, well the new catalog isn't coming out until April 1 (and then it will take a while to get to you). As for when you should order... well, do you want the latest and greatest, or do you want to get in before the prices potentially go up (I honestly don't know what-all is changing)?

Heather the Mama Duk said...

LOL That video is hilarious. It's crazy how excited I get over the Sonlight catalog... especially since the last two years I've bought our next core in December.

sonwray said...

I love this. Why have I not found your blog before.

Great video, next time could you get a little closer??

Luke said...

Heather, you get excited because the catalog is AWESOME! <smile>

Sonwray, glad you liked the video <smile>. I don't know why you haven't found my blog before, but I hope to see you around often from here on out. And, please, let me know what your blog is--if you have one--so I can start following you. Thanks!

As for getting closer to the page... I'm working on that... <smile>.

Sonshine4u said...

I was pretty sure the phrase "soup-up" your core was your addition...tooo funny!

Sarah said...

You certainly know how to play with our emotions!! It's that time of year!!

Luke said...

Sonshine, I'm glad you're enjoying this <smile>.

Sarah, you're right: It is that time of year. I'm still sticking with the fact that someone wanted us to start hyping... I'm just doing what the peoples want <smile>.

~Luke
