Lee, of course, has a pretty good reason for going: his car was broken into and his precious CDs stolen. He needs to recover some CDs, obviously, but that in itself is a lousy reason to invite me along for the ride. I promised myself I wouldn’t buy anything. I lied.
I walked out with:
- O Brother, Where Art Thou?
- the Nightmare Before Christmas
- the Terminator
- the Crow
- the Sixth Sense
- Being John Malkovich
- the Silence of the Lambs
- Donnie Darko: Music from the original motion picture score
Lee walked out with:
- some kind of ‘urban sounds’ remix CD
- the Futurama Season 3 boxed set
Good to see we both stuck to our guns.
I did, however, manage to stick to my resolution not to buy any DVD that wasn’t on sale, which is good, but I paid full price on the Donnie Darko soundtrack. Still no Donnie Darko DVD, though. Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the Green Mile continue to taunt me from their full–price shelf, urging me to buy them; but I will resist, and wait until they are on sale.
