The bluray disc set? How is it?
The movies are still spilt in 2 parts, each on their own BD disc...
Great quality and the extra material is seamlessly added...
I watched the 1st one last night and i really couldn't tell most of the added stuff from what hadn't been there when i saw it in the theather...
The appendices are still on DVDs though...

I have the regular DVD extended edition (separate collector's editions) at home, been thinking about picking that up... I've actually had it on my Amazon auto notify now for like 2-3 years.

In Sovjet Russia, the camera buys you!

I bought a Zenit TTL a few hours ago. Roughly 20€ and its basically brand new. Figured, I'd give analog photography a go as well.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Not exactly off-topic, more anti-topic, but I was just looking through my credit card transactions for the last month, and realised I hadn't bought anything apart from petrol, parking, and food (OK some of the latter includes cafe, restaurant and bar bills, but still). I don't think that's ever happened to me before!

I wasn't even trying to cut back. Very weird. Maybe I've finally ascended to a higher spiritual plane?

I'm like that guy in TNG's Transfigurations. I know something is happening to me, but I don't know what or why...

Hooray! I'm typing on one that I got very recently as a birthday present. I've wanted an iPad ever since they came out, but it seemed so extravagant that I didn't want to spend the money.

My parents bought this for me though, and it pretty much hasn't left my side!

also
Breaking Bad S3 (already seen it but want to own it)
and
Dragon Quest IV and VI for the Nintendo DS. I now own all the DQ games for that system.

Or maybe it's the 5th or 6th seal being opened.

^ Darn, just when I was starting to really enjoy this planet.
It's always Holdfast's fault.

I got me a new phone for my Italian SIM, and am very happy with it. I decided to go for an Android (2.3 Gingerbread) this time. It's slightly more complicated than I expected in certain areas, but thoroughly enjoyable and quick as lightning. Add a 5Mp camera, a 512Mb Ram, SD memory upgradable to 32Gb, and b/g/n WiFi.
All in one of the most compact phones I've seen in a good while! It's positively tiny compared to pretty much anything else!

It's the HTC Wildfire S:

You'll be reassured to know that it's devilish hard to find a septet of trumpeters, so the 7th is staying locked for a good while yet.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

The SuicideGirls coffee table book (got it dirt cheap, too!). I have to say, it's a bit bigger than what I thought it was going to be, but I am very pleased with it. 396 pages of full color photographs, no ads, no articles, no filler. Just beauty from edge to edge. Now I just need a coffee table to put under it.
