I would bet the complete series of BSG will become available now and again for a seriously good bargain price...


Oh, just my luck I'd either wait until a good price came along on one, grab it and then an even better prices comes along on the other.  Way of my life.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif


The other OTHER part is that, in my line of work, I'm confronted every day with absolute need to hoard as much money as humanly possible.  I spent my 20's doing really stupid stuff and getting myself out of financial jams.  I'm 31 now, in a new place and I need to be smarter with the dollars.  Retirement is only 30-something years away after all.  Not to mention wanting a house and stuff before I go gray...

I was already gray in my 20s (Irish/Dutch heritage)...so I was way ahead of the curve.

Good luck with keeping your head above the financial sharks.  I think we've all had our share of problems with money.  This hobby doesn't make things any eaiser...  /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif


There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Gray is cool!

Funny you mention going gray, Mike.  (You too, Michael.)  I look back at pictures of me ten years ago when I was 21...full head of hair.  In the intervening time, it's slowly gone away until I decided to just go with the shaved look full time about four years ago.  My father has a full head of hair.  My uncles and cousins and grandmothers...yup.  Me?  Not so much.


It's hard to remember hair after not having it for a while.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/wink.gif

Matt's review of Stargate Universe: SG-U 1.5 has now been linked-to above.

FYI - Crouching Tiger on Best Buy's website (as of earlier today) is $16.99. If you go to customer service and tell them that, they'll price match with no hassle. I've done this a few times at different Best Buys and never had a problem.

I've actually had them do the BB.com price match right at the register at least twice.  It's a YMMV since it takes a bit of work to get it done.

Yeah Jason I've had the cashier either not know how to do it, or flat out refuse and send me to customer service. Ever since then, I just go straight to CS so I don't end up waiting in two lines.

In the cashier's defense, doing the online price match at the register does require a bit of leg work and if there's a lot of people in line, prolly not worth the hassle.  So yeah, I hate being "that guy" who holds the line up.
