Strangers with Candy box set to be released in June?

The Internet is abuzz with rumors that a 6-disk box set of the Strangers with Candy series will be released on June 27, in time for the planned release of the SWC movie. Crafty Beaver noted on her site that several online vendors have it available for pre-order, and The Digital Bits is reporting that it “will be a 6-disc set including director’s cuts of several episodes, 20 minutes of deleted scenes, audio commentaries and more.”

This is in line with what Amy told us (sans details) back in February.

Amy taking a break from Believer column

While hunting the online excerpt of Amy’s latest column in The Believer, I ran across this announcement:

Amy Sedaris has decided to take a much-needed sabbatical from her column-writing duties. In the coming months, SEDARATIVES will feature a rotating cast of guest columnists, including Sarah Silverman (March), Zach Galifianakis (April), and Amy Poehler (May). Neither Amy nor the Believer editors accept any responsibility for the opinions expressed by the aforementioned surrogates, nor can we attest to their Sedarativeness.

We’ll let you know as soon as we find out she’s back in the swing of it.
