DVD DAY

I went to Best Buy on a mission today - to buy the newly-released "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny." I didn't manage to catch it in theaters but I love the D and there was no way I would pass it up. The first thing I noticed upon arriving at the store was a display of DVDs for $9.99 each. The second thing I noticed was that there were special edition DVDs I still didn't have in my own collection - "Boogie Nights" and "True Romance." Next I went around and found the movie I came in for, which also comes with a Best Buy bonus disc. Great. I decided to wander back to the CD section - surprise, surprise - and saw another display with "Stranger Than Fiction," which also came out today. That's another movie I didn't see in the theater but seemed right up my alley. Then when I noticed that if you bought another movie with it, they would both be $20. It was just a couple movies but one of them was "Tootsie," which Jill and I both love. So, I grabbed both of those as well. And to top it all off, after I checked out and looked at my receipt, I saw that I didn't get charged for "True Romance" at all. 5 DVDs for just over $9 each? That's what I call a good day. Now if I can only find time to watch them...

Now that is indeed a good DVD day ... I'm gonna buy Stranger than Fiction when my wallet gives me the chance, but I think I'll stick to a rental, at least at first, with the D

I realize the D movie could really suck but I own everything else they've done, so how can I pass it up?

Thanks for stopping by!
