Well I got two of them so far (Neils book of the dead being the other)
They get me laughing.

Best method of getting me to go into your shop ever
Have that book in your window or have LPs like Court of the crimson king, maiden Dark side of the moon and have Sabbath playing inside

A Roadstar 7" LCD TV for £7.50 - thought it would be good for a project of some kind, now to come up with one!

And another DVD recorder - had to, it seems the tray on my Sony is stuck fast and not even Geoff Capes could pull it free.

Found a shop that sold stuff for, which worked out to, 33p. So, picked up No Retreat No Surrender (called Karate Tiger here) and Hard Rain. Been meaning to watch this for a while, and at 33p, it's hard to say no.

Got a few more DVDs for 33p. They are:

Young Guns
Free Time (it's got Zak Braff, Justin Bateman and Amanda Peet in, so it's got to be funny)
Screamers
and this one I was really surprised to find.....



HOWARD THE DUCK!!!! Stuff the sellers on eBay trying to flog it for insane amounts! I know it's rubbish, but it's guilty pleasure.
