This Week in Geek (28/05-03/06/07)

Buys'n'Gifts

I've mentioned before that Amazon went sales-crazy, which made me buy-crazy. The stuff is pretty quickly showing up in bundles. So this week, I got:
-Days of Being Wild, part of my tracking down Kar Wai Wong films after loving his 2046.
-H2O, a Canadian film Amazon suggested when I told them I loved Slings & Arrows.
-Good Will Hunting, real cheap and it's been on my wish list for a long time. Hearing Affleck and Damon tear each other down (for laughs) in the commentary should be fun.
-Black Canary Archives, since I've been wanting to get a few of these, especially with Golden Age material.
-Jpod by Douglas Coupland, love his work and this one seemed in the Microserfs vein.
-The Doctor Who Soundtrack, which I've since listened to almost non-stop.
-The new Dumas album, which I haven't listened to at all on account of being obsessed with the Doctor Who record.
-When I flipped the tape on Goodfellas a couple of weeks ago, I realized I haven't got any other Scorsese in my collection, and have hardly seen any of his most important works. Turns out I could get Mean Streets and Casino on the cheap, and threw in The Departed for good, head-bursting measure.

In addition to all that booty, my good friend Bauble, responsible for starting RomQuest when he got me Rom #1, has now given me Marvel Two-in-One #99, the Thing/Rom team-up destined never to be reprinted. I haven't done much with Brave&the Bold/2-in-1 lately because I've got a feeling Batman's winning the competition, but I'll be damned if the Rom issue doesn't make me want to post a final smackdown. Oh, and he threw in some Marvel Premieres starring Doctor Who. To him, much thanks.

"Accomplishments"

Yeah, not much this week. Had an improv show to prepare for and present, plus had some family business to attend to over the weekend. For those following Lyndawithay's meteoric rise in World of Warcraft, I did managed to spring her from level 47 to 48, but that's it.

I'll try to do better next week!
