Other Freak Purchases......

Moral of story. Do not agree to go shopping whilst doing th "Tourist Thing" in the centre of London.

Whilst girlies were purchasing underware I ended up in HMV on Oxford Street.

I then ended up with the following DVDs now sitting on coffee table waiting for my attention.....

Brotherhood of the Wolf (Great French film set in the mid-18th Century - and currently only £5.99 at HMV!)

Casshern (Great Japanese film in the Limited Edition Steel Pack. I also have this in a different Region but for some reason my DVD player which has been multi-regional for the last 3+ years has suddenly decided its only playing Region 2 DVDs - and as I've been wanting to see this damn film for f**king ages I now have two copies of it in different regional codes!)

City of Men (This is a Brazillian TV series by the same people behind the marvellous 'City of God'. Set in the Rio ghettos it uses local actors to help capture the gritty realism of Brazillian street life. This contains Seasons 1 & 2)

Kagemusha: The Shadow Warrior (Award winning Japanese classic from 1980 set in 16th Century Japan)

Memento (Been on my 'To Buy' list for ages on DVD. This is a triple-disc special edition with loads of shiny extras!)

Superman I & II Box Set (Not one that was high on my list to buy but HMV had it at £9.99, down from £29.99 in a clearence sale. Nuff said at that price! :p)

I also brought some really nice NASA phots of the Earth and a Black Hole but managed to avoid falling foul to having my Astrological Chart and forthcoming Years Horoscope made for me. Also had Ice Cream :)

(PS - Failed to go clubbing tonight as Sarah's foot is playing up after all the walking. To be honest this acctually suits me as I have a bit of a headache and am also rather tired after staying up most of last night watching the election results. Want to go to the XFM club to check it out soonish though!)

Remind me to never, ever take you into Fopp on Charing Cross Road then. All self control goes out of the window in there!

We actually passed it en route to Forbidden Planet and Mysteries but I'd alraedy brought the Reading Festival tickets and the DVDs at HMV and thought it wiser not to tempt fate further by that time! :p

Your weakness for DVDs is akin to my own.

I agree with an alarming number of your purchases actaully!

I have a theory that all gamers have almost exactly the same book shelves and DVD/Video collections.

I'd argue that there is a general overlap of the two but that there usually is genuine differences between two gamers collections.

I think there are certain things that are naturally considered shiny by gamers and common amoung them, but you get a real insight into a person from their collections of books and DVDs. So there usually is a bit of distinctiveness to each individual collection.

We'll take that other region Casshern off your hands. Give ya what ya paid for it. Have heard good things about it and really want it :o)

Sold. I'll check to see how much it cost but I think it wsa about £9.99, maybe even £8.99. Certainly a lot cheaper then the Region 2 version anyway. (I brought the R2 one at HMV because I really couldn't wait any longer but could have saved £4 on-line if I'd been more patient :p)

Sometimes impatience wins out :o)

Lemme know how much plus any postage to send it to us and we'll jsut send ya the cash via paypal.

You still need to come visit, as does Mr Peregrine.
Drag Mel and someone else down and we'll make it GrimCon. :)
