Gamera Shopping

Phew, after a busy weekend of Circle K's Fall Rally - had a fun day in Garfield shopping at Pat Katan's, Parma Town Mall and Best Buy. Started with a 10$ Best Buy gift certificate, and ended up buying a Mystery Science Theater 3000 DVD (The Gamera Collection of 5 movies), a double-Scooby Doo 1 & 2 Blu-ray and a tape measure. (Thinking of buying a PS3 since my laptop's bluray player is kinda annoying.)

So long story short, I spent a bit more than I'd hoped -- hehe. Got home around 10, now I'm watching a Gamera movie before bed and class in the morning at 8:50a.

Oh boy, Gamera is an old Japanese movie series... similar to Godzilla. Except he's a turtle... who's arms and legs can turn into jet rockets. And he seems to have a friendship with this kid, Kenny. In regards to MST3K history though, these 5 movies in the series represent a period when it went from a cheesy local TV show to a new level of better writing in the 1993 season. So I def look forward to watching them this week if I can find enough of time, haha. I'm thinking one a day or so.

This collectors set also stands out because it has 5 DVDs when all the other MST3K movie sets have four. It also comes with these little collectable MST3K posters that I have now a bunch of, and need to find a way to use or display.

Quote of the Day:
"Kenny, I know how much you love your turtle. But there are other things in life just as important, like having friends! You don't want to live alone do you? ....if you get rid of the turtle, Daddy will get you anything at all!" - Kenny's parents, Gamera (Mystery Science Theater 3000)

"Tibby? Tibby?"  -  Kenny (his turtle, now missing, is named "Tibby.")
"or not To-Be..."  -  MST3K Commentators.

Song of the Day: "You Make Me Feel..." by Cobra Starship, ft. Sabi. Meh, average song, but I'm glad Cobra Starship has not disapeared and is still making popular music after they appeared on the scene with Snakes on a Plane. Bahaha@Product Placement. "Bing for iPad" pretty much says it all... The music video's not really anything all that special, thought it does give me an idea for a way to bring Polaroid back from the brink of bankruptcy (or is that Kodak?) They should try to sell new mall-print machines, that have internet access and can get updates constantly like cellphones. And you can enter your cell number, or email or something, and it'll send the pic to you.
