Media shopping

I turned most of the tokens into cold, hard, media in town yesterday. The haul comes to the following books:

  • Dead Witch Walking, The Good, The Bad, and the Undead, and Every Which Way But Dead, by Kim Harrison. No idea what they're like, but I expect them to be trashy Anita Blake-like riffs.
  • The Fencing Master and The Dumas Club, by Arturo Perez-Reverte; I liked Captain Alatriste, and I've seen the film that Master was turned into, so these should be good.
  • Carpe Jugulum, by Pterry, of course. Just filling in the gaps, where we've read borrowed versions or copies have gone walkies.
  • Opus: 25 Years of his Sunday Best, by Berkeley Breathed, thus continuing my long obsession with all-things Bloom County. I hadn't realised there'd been an Opus strip, after BC and Outland.

So that lot should keep me going for a while.

The DVDs were:

  • The new Who boxset. I only waited this long because I had Woollies tokens, and they were out of stock...
  • Addicted to Love. Because we only had this on tape.
  • Grosse Point Blank. Ditto. And because this one never seems to be reduced in price...
  • Lemony Snicket. Utterly enchanting film. Had to get it.
  • Executive Decision. Mindless action flick. Again, converting tape to DVD.
  • Air Force One. Ditto. And Ditto.
  • Cradle 2 the Grave. aka Romeo Must Die redux. Jet Li. DMX. hip-hop. What's not to like?
  • Blade Trilogy. Because it was damn cheap (and deservedly so, given how bad II and III were - and the first film wasn't that hot, come to think of it).

Adding that to the stuff I've got on loan, and I think I have sufficient viewing for the next year or so...
