I only went in for a diary and some change for the bus... [Sep. 14th, 2004|02:55 pm]

Oh whoops!!

I just got back from town (after going to college) with a bagful of dvds...

I only intended to go in The Works to buy a new diary, as mine has practically fallen apart - but there was a 4 dvds (two titles per dvd) for a fiver thing going on and lots of dodgy b-movies on the shelf.

Just LOOK at what I came away with...

DVD 1: Graduation Day / A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell (Troma - "Where the prehistoric meets the prepubescent"!)

DVD 2: Alien Blood / Shadow Chaser - The Gates of Time

DVD 3: Hercules in New York / Vampire Clan

DVD 4: The Fanatic / Dead Awake

Oh dear oh dear... Well at least those will keep me going for a while!!

Let's just call them 'research' shall we? I know my exam paper is going to be on Scottish Cinema - but hey!! All film watching is good, right??


Hands up who's up for a 'POSH PICNIC' up at the Punx Picnic on Saturday???

Providing the weather is ok, I intend to be dressed up uber-goth, and take a checkered tablecloth, cucumber sandwiches, victoria sponge and lashings of ginger beer up to the Hoe with me... Anyone want to share? Three of you, one of me - I say it's Pimms o'clock!!


Ok, I clearly haven't had enough sleep - I'm going a bit dotty again... Got home from work at 6:30am and was up again at 11 to go to college. Think I need a bit of a lie-down.

Hooble Toodle Doo!!

Oops! The Works is just too bloody tempting sometimes. Can I watch 'Vampire Clan' with you? Sounds like my cuppa tea.

Posh Picnic sounds fabulous dahling!
But if it rains I'm heading for the pub.

How did college go btw?

Of course you can - still need to get a lead for my dvd player anyway as the tv doesn't have a scart - grr!!

Nothing to stop us spreading the tablecloth at the Nowhere I suppose;)

College - ah - mother dropped me down there and it turns out I didn't have to be there - so I got the bus into town with time to spare and went on the aforementioned spree. Oops!!

Bad Lizzi! Bad Lizzi!!

That's all I could think of...

I could cheat and include Rab C. Nesbitt...or the inevitable Sean Connery history... Or Braveheart/Highlander/Rob Roy...

Thin line though.

you don't have to; eight quid plus amazon equals the region one dvd in 10-15 days.

then we get to see the thing as the bard intended... had he seen troma films before he started writing!

That *will* be fun - perhaps we could incorporate it into a Berkeley Barrington experience - LRP a trip to the cinema...and subsequent outrage *giggles*

We could edit it so that we cut in bits of the film and cross-cut to his expressions... Perhaps with a musical theme...
