Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Selling Collections
« on: August 2, 2004, 03:14 PM »
I met a guy on Rebelscum who was selling his entire collection for $1.00 per figure.  He was nice enough to let my friend and I stop by before the garage sale.  I bought 100 figures from him the first night (mostly clones and stormies), the 12" speederbike with scout trooper for 10$, some vehicles for $3.00 each, the Famba for $3.00, and on and on.

Then, after the garage sale he called us up and said that he was selling the leftovers for a quarter a figure.

I bought another 120 figures from him (mostly battle droids and jawas and fleet troopers other army builders)

He did it because he was out of space.  And the bottom line is that he didn't want to - I got the impression that he was regretting it as we sat at his dining room table picking through the stuff.  I hope it worked out well for him, but I knew right then that I couldn't do it.

In highschool, a friend of mine got jumped by 6 kids who thought he was a skinhead because his head was buzzed.  The broke his jaw into two pieces and for 7 weeks his jaw was wired shut and he could only drink food.  He liquified everything - and will tell you that if there is one thing in this world you don't ever want to do, it's drink a pizza.

Although I bet he'd have a different outlook on these things today if Krispy Kreme had put donuts in blenders 6 years ago.

So a donut costs 69 cents, but a donut in a blender with a little whipcream costs 3.00?

I don't get it.

I guess it's good that we can drink donuts now though, so we can get fat in half the time.

No good at all.

Watch your kids when they're on the playground - at least until they're old enough to handle themselves if something like that were to happen.

That would be great.  Thanks!

OCB, I heard the other day that the new Exorcist got an NC-17 rating - word is also that they are going to try to edit it for the theatrical release to try to get it down to R.  

Which means, once again - we've got to wait for the DVD before we'll know (assuming this is true).  Either way, the trailers definitely look like it might be good.

I like to think some of the old horror movies are making a comeback in a better way...after the debacle of Jason X and a million other crappy recent horror movies like it, I thought they did a much better job with the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre and even Freddy vs. Jason was better than I expected.  I'm hoping this continues with the new Exorcist - I think they're starting to realize there's a huge market for well done horror movies - even if they're remakes or prequels or what not, but that the crappy ones will always flop.  Of course, up next, Seed of Chucky - which I have low expectations for.

Thanks for those links - I'm going to check them out tomorrow.  One of the things I really need to get into Japanese horror (and film in general) a little more is a few websites that have good information on what's worth seeing and what's crap.  Then I have to figure out where to get the stuff without it costing 30 or 40$ per dvd.

He was cool in Hackers - downhill from there.

Speaking of that song...  In 11th grade I gave a lecture on Irony to my English class.

I read the lyrics to that song, but in a serious tone - the kids were all laughing, the teacher thought it was brilliant - and I got an A.

I was just playing along with a far-fetched explanation for why that shirt is actually inspirational.   :)

i was really looking forward to seeing the village. couldn't find anyone to go with me tho. then, i read the "spoiler" ending online. glad i didn't waste my money.

that movie must have sucked.

Yeah, seeing as you probably have pretty similar tastes to mine, save your money.  It was disappointing...to put it lightly.

Oh yah,sure- you’re so insensitive… I bet you’re the type of person that would wear a shirt that said, “Titanic Swimming Team, 1912.” … Just plain sick!

A shirt saying Titanic Swim Team 1912 would suggest that you're the type of person who might be described as a survivor.

I noticd this at CNN, and while I don't mean to make fun of the injured and potentially dying, I did find it ironic that a Casino deck collapsed - injuring, that's right - 52 people.

Fire chief: 52 injured in Montana Casino Deck Collapse
