So I hopped into my car and drove down the road to the local petrol station to fill up, since I needed petrol and I had nothing else to do tonight. While I was there, I decided to pop into JB Hi Fi just to browse around. To be honest, the last couple of times I've gone in there I haven't actually bought anything.

I picked up Ricky Ponting International Cricket 2007 (I can hear the groans of my former housemates from here) because for $18.98 why wouldn't you? Well, obviously you wouldn't if you didn't love cricket.

I also grabbed MacGyver: Season 4 because I already had seasons 1, 2, 3, and 5. I'm only partway through season 2. I have too many DVDs to watch. :P

It was funny when I went to pay. The girl at the counter said, "Oh my god! Everyone has been buying MacGyver tonight!" The counter dude next to her said, "MacGYverrr" in a deep voice and she cracked up. XD

Counter chick: "There you go! Enjoy watching ..." *pokes dude*
Counter dude: "MacGYverrr."
Counter chick: XD

But the most brilliant, awesome thing I accidentally stumbled upon in the anime section was ...

The Mysterious Cities of Gold! :D :D :D

Fantastic! This is a show that I absolutely adored as a kid. So much so that a few years ago I tracked it down on the internets and after much stuffing around with illegal downloads eventually scored myself the complete series. The quality was a bit dodgy, particularly in a few episodes, but I got to watch it all again! :D And surprisingly, I still enjoyed the show as an adult! :D Sadly, however, at the time there was no indication that the show would be released on DVD with the English dub.

So it's pretty freaky that I accidentally stumbled upon it at JB! It was .... $94. D: I immediately jumped onto EzyDVD's website to find they were selling it for $100 and they were out of stock. I tried Amazon and it was about US$60, which after the conversion to Aussie dollars plus shipping it would've come out to 150 billion dollars. I figured JB's price was a pretty good deal! Plus it was right there in my hand.


The only question remains is whether I'd watch the show here on my TV in my parents' house. >v< I'm far too self conscious about what I watch here.

Edit: Added bonus is I can now delete 10GB from my desktop PC's hard drive. XD

Hmm, I've missed a few episodes of Spaced. I could pirate it or I could buy it. Oo, Amazon.co.uk has Spaced and they'll ship to Australia! *buys*

Hmm, while I'm at it, I think I'll pick up Doctor Who Series 3 soundtrack since it's not at JB Hi Fi.

Ooo! I can also get Life On Mars: Series 2! Nope, they still haven't announced a release date here in Australia for that. Muahaha!

XD The Rules of Modern Policing - 1973 Edition (Life On Mars). Must get!

And the Life On Mars soundtrack too, of course.

Wow, that's an expensive evening. ovo;;

I appear to have run out of space for DVDs. I anticipate a trip to Ikea next weekend.

I've been asked to take photos at a friend's wedding. I've been pondering what steps I need to take to prepare for this. The stock lens that came with my Canon 350D is woefully inadequate, so at a minimum I'm going to have to replace that. I'll probably want to get my camera body cleaned, and whilst I'm at it I might as well have my other lenses cleaned too. That means I'll be without that camera for an indeterminate length of time. I ought to get a compact digital anyway to make this daily photo thing easier. I guess the first step is to find out exactly what sort of photos I'll be taking. Will I need to buy an external flash? More memory? A third battery?

Grindhouse has hit Amazon (as two separate DVDs) and it hasn't even been released theatrically in Australia yet. I wonder if I should just get the DVDs, considering they're not even going to be shown as a double feature in Australia.

Time for the annual update! Items in bold are new to the collection since this entry back in June 2005.

The size of my DVD collection is rather disappointing actually. I'm currently only filling 3 and a bit shelves.

Since I haven't updated this list since this entry...

There are still a few werewolf movies missing from that list that I'll need to buy at some point. I've got Star Trek: The Next Generation (Seasons 1 and 2) arriving in the mail soon! :D I still want to buy Young Einstein off Amazon. I also still need to get Narnia, Harry Potter 4 and MacGyver Season 2...and Doctor Who! Battlestar Galactica (Season 2) will be released soon - I must have it!

EzyDVD has just informed me (indirectly) that there are not one but THREE films featuring human-to-bird (or bird-to-human) transformations to be released to DVD on the same day!!


Two of those movies are fantastic in their own right. I haven't seen the third but it's been recommended to me.

This must be a sign! They MUST be mine! @v@

DVDs picked up this evening at JB Hi Fi:

  • Memento
  • Blues Brothers
  • Titan A.E.
  • Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Also picked up the King of Bandit Jing boxset from Madman's website (so that I can finally return Snowy's copy...). >v>

Saw Howl's Moving Castle last night! I want to see it again. *grin* Mmm, feathery...

Just reviewing my wishlist... ) I'm going to keep this list on my iPod from now on so next time I wander into JB Hi Fi I don't stumble around stupidly for half an hour. ;>
whyrl: (shiny!)
Just listing here the DVDs I don't yet have and intend to buy when I see them available for a bargain (either <$20 or in a boxset at a reasonable price paired with other worthwhile films).

The list )

I wonder what films I still need to add to this list. I'm definitely progressing on my werewolf movie collection. ;> Hrm - this list seems kinda small now that I look at it.
