I heard rumors yesterday about our local Hollywood Video selling all of their VHS tapes for a dollar each. Turns out those rumors were true. I managed to find a ton of movies and then Daniel came by after work and found more. We narrowed it down to (I am ashamed) twenty-six. Seriously? If you had the whole pick of the movie store? For a dollar? I had a horrible time trying to decide. Daniel got a ton of music video tapes from the 80’s that I’m sure we’ll never watch, and I got a ton of movies I’ve wanted for a while but probably would never buy on DVD.
The finds I’m most proud of, though, are both of the Ewok movies. EWOKS. I love the Ewoks. I grew up watching Battle for Endor and had absolutely no idea it was even remotely related to Star Wars until I was in the eighth grade. I understand that hardcore fans of Star Wars are probably booing me right now and I get that, I do, but I still like the Ewoks. And Teek. And Wilford Brimley as Noa.
I also bought Chicken Run, Monsters, Inc., and Where the Heart Is, as well as Willow and Labyrinth. All in all it was a very productive evening. :cheer:
Guess what? We got the apartment! Our tenative move-in date is the 25th of this month, as the apartment opens on the 18th but we’ll be in Idaho from the 16th to the 24th. I will TOTALLY post pictures as soon as I have them.
We’re going to try to actually make an effort to decorate this new place, and I am so looking forward to the new IKEA that’s opening this summer. It is lovely and affordable and we can get a real kitchen table! With chairs! Because we will have a place to put it!
