Oh, today was a good day on the media front. A very good day, indeed.
I purchased our copy of Juno just a few minutes ago on DVD. Considering how much we both loved this movie (we paid to see it in theaters twice), it was a given that we'd be buying it. We wound up buying it at Circuit City because it came packaged with a replica of the track team T-shirt that Michael Cera wore in the movie. Of course, it's only a large. But, once shrunken, it should be fine for Katie as a workout shirt. And very appropriate considering we've started running ourselves.
While at CC, I found a copy of the Alien Quadrilogy box set for $19.99. This is a nine-disc set of all four Alien movies that, when it first came out, was nearly $80 and is still retailing for $50 now.
I've been holding off on the Alien movies on DVD for quite some time. I did own the second film, Aliens, the James Cameron masterpiece, on special edition VHS, but, well, it's VHS. We don't even own a VCR anymore. So I finally have my replacement copies and for a killer price! I guess it pays to wait sometimes.
Even if I never watch Alien3 and Alien Resurrection, I've made up my money just with the two original films.
Throw into the mix the fact that I traded some stuff in at GameStop. Enough that I was able to completely pay for my pre-order of Wii Mario Kart and also apply $10 to a pre-order of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith.
Good times. Good times, indeed.
Oh yeah, so I'm commiserating with the clerks at GameStop about the sheer number of cool video games that have come out in recent months and those that are upcoming in the next few months and that's when they decide to drop the bomb on me that Rock Band is coming out for the Wii in the next few months. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, think Guitar Hero, but with a guitar (that also doubles as a bass), a drum kit, and a microphone. How freakin' sweet is that? But it'll wind up being about $180 so I may have to hold off. For a looong time.
But I'm off right now. Hopefully to have some Alien-infused fun.
