The Omega Man

Life of Brian Criterion Collection

and the big one was

Wrong Men & Notorious Women - Five Hitchcock Thrillers 1935-1946 - Criterion Collection Box Set

containing
The 39 Steps, The Lady Vanishes, Rebecca, Spellbound, and Notorious
some will be OOP at the end of the year so I'm happy.
all cept omega man are blind buys but I don't think I really got to worry.

One question!
Is it normal for the bar codes to be hole punched in the box sets?

My wife got me an iPod (20gb) and Alias season 2 DVD.

My mom got me a leather mid-back massage office chair and The Ultimate Carson collection on DVD.

My cousin gave me the JBL Creature speaker set. (As soon as I connected them to my iBook, I realized my audio jack is damaged. Off to apple store I go with the iBook.)

My sister-in-law got me Family Guy V2 DVD, Two Towers Extended Edition DVD and the Stone Cold Truth book.

My brother's doing his shopping for us tomorrow when we all go to the mall so I get to pick what I want. He offered to get the x-box for me but i told him that's what i was planning to get myself.

Family members got:
Concert for George
Tears of the Sun
LOTR: TT EE
Doors SOundstage Sessions
10 Years at the Brickyard
Waterworld

I know I'm forgetting something.
My titles were surprises as most family members don't know where to find the HK titles and don't kow what I already have.
I did get some money and gift cards to get some more.

Best thing: a new Canon Digital Camera!

Merry Xmas to all!

None of my damily members bought me DVDs even though I asked for them because it "was too comlicated your so picky about widescreen and stuff".

However during my Christmas shopping I bought several for myself. Almost Famous Bootleg, South Park: Bigger longer..., Boogie Nights, Austin powers, and Legend. I also bought Pulp Fiction, but returned it after I discovered the shoddy packagin Alliance Atlantis had created, and will be ordering the U.S. release instead.
