But are these sites/programs (whatever they are) available worldwide? Because at Amazon, the album was restricted to US citizens only.

Here is some info regarding Amazon:

Besides Amazon.com, international sites include Canada, UK, Germany, Japan, France, and China.

Thanks for the effort, but I don't live in any of these. :D

igniculus, on the one hand, it's annoying that other European countries won't get to enjoy the soundtrack; on the other hand, I don't see Korea listed among those sites either. I'm guessing the producers are going to have to come up with a way to appease a few thousand angry Koreans :P

I've been able to purchase a cd not available in the US off of Amazon UK. I just had to pay more for international shipping, and of course by credit card for the currency exchange. I don't know if that would work for people living in countries not on the list above, though.

I tried the main amazon site and the German version, but no luck, still got the same result. Sigh.

I was out on Amazon.com and only saw the MP3 option. What did I miss?

Johnny and his best friend Paris will be attending the showing of Pop Star on Ice this Saturday afternoon (July 11) at 12:15 p.m. at the Ritz East in Philadelphia, at the Q Fest film festival.

Tickets are still available http://www.qfest.com/calendar-by-day.cfm?d=260

Philly is less than a two-hour drive from where he lives in New Jersey, so he shouldn't have to miss any training time.

Thanks ;););););) yes, we need to point this out to many people because they still mistakenly think that Johnny is out carousing all of the time and ignoring his training. :wall: The dude :saint: is serious about his training, people!

I'm sorry. I was talking about something a couple of years ago. :shuffle:

Actual CDs of the soundtrack album (including liner notes) should be available on Amazon soon. Will keep you posted.

As to the countries where iTunes, Amazon, etc. are not available, it would be good to know who might be interested in purchasing. If there were enough interest (e.g., from Johnny fans in Russia or Korea), it might be possible to organize a way to get the album to those countries (either via internet or physical CDs).

Seems it would be advisable to lay low and put your total focus on becoming the next Olympic champion, if that is what you want above all else.

I don't think that's what Johnny wants above all else. Has he said that? I always hear him talk about his MANY interests, which include designing his costumes, attending events, etc, etc. Seems like capitalizing on his popularity leading up to the Olympics is the smartest way to do things if he wants to have enough star power to have non-skating opportunities after the Olympics, which it sounds like that's what he has wanted all along. Nothing wrong with that, some people see past the Olympics. For many people it's the finish line, but for some it's the stepping stone. Johnny doesn't have to win the Olympics to use the publicity momentum of the Olympics to open future doors for himself, and quite honestly considering how unpopular figure skating has become (especially in the states) he's right to take the chance while he has it.

Philly is less than a two-hour drive from where he lives in New Jersey, so he shouldn't have to miss any training time.

I received an email about it this morning. Apparently there is also a screening on Friday evening 7/10.

Here's the email:

"Dear Skating Club officers, coaches and members,

I am the co-director of the documentary film POP STAR ON ICE about
Olympian and 3-time US Figure Skating Champion Johnny Weir. We are very
proud that our film will have its Philadelphia Premiere this Friday,
July 10 and Saturday, July 11.

We believe members (ages 12 and up) of your club would really enjoy
seeing this behind-the-scenes portrait of one of the most colorful
athletes in the sport. We would love to get the word out to those
members who might be interested if you could help us do it. Here is a
blurb you could email if you would be so kind:

I'll be at the LA Premiere Sunday (as will Jennifer Kirk (http://trueslant.com/jenniferkirk/2009/07/02/pop-star-on-ice/), apparently! :)). Does anyone know how long the Q&A sessions with the directors typically go for?
