Took me a while to hunt this one down.  The two track U.S. card sleeve CD singles lasted from 1992’s “Erotica” up through 1995’s “You’ll See”, after which Warner Bros. changed packaging to a card box with a plastic slide-out disc tray.  Generally speaking they did only one print run of each single while the maxi-singles remain in print.

CRASHprez - Paranoia (John Vietnam Cypher) (by CRASHprez)

On September 1, 2002, top model Natalia Vodianova and Justin Portman, who had married in a civil ceremony before Lucas’s birth, had a Russian Orthodox wedding at St. Vladimir’s Cathedral, in Saint Petersburg. A lavish reception at the Palace of Catherine the Great followed, which included a seven-course dinner and Cossack dancers. There were 110 guests and one very overwhelmed translator. Tom Ford, one of Vodianova’s earliest supporters, designed her pearl-gray satin wedding dress. ‘I love Natalia, and I think she’s probably—if not the, then certainly one of the most beautiful women in the world right now,’ says Ford, ‘but when I see her with Justin and their son I love her even more. I mean, the three of them—they’re just adorable.’” – Vanity Fair, 2005
