"I sure wouldn't have this problem with porn"

Was going through my stuff the other day and realized that I got a whole pile of DVD sets that I bought but have yet to watch. No time, no mood etc. Geez, I sure wouldn't have this problem with porn! Hah!


Here's the bunch I got from Amazon at a discount, I forgot the price but they were a lot cheaper than buying here at a local DVD store. Animanics Vol. 1 and 2, Pinky and The Brain Vol. 1 and 2, Martha Stewart's Baking Favorites, Homemade Holidays and Favorite Cookies. Oh, you definitely can't find Martha's stuff here.


These (fortnightly) Star Trek file/folder sets I got from Japan, one of my earlier trips, it's from the bookstore Kinokuniya, can't remember if it's Tokyo or Osaka. There's a DVD in each of them, 3 random episodes from either Next Generation, Voyager or Deep Space Nine. And a lot of articles in Japanese too. Totally impulse buy cos it looked cool and I'm a sci-fi nut. I didn't even check the price, Set 1 was cheap but Sets 2 and 3 were like double the price!

MY sci-fi impulse buying days are over, but ... if there is a good deal to be had ...

The main problem I have with sci-fi (or pretty much any buy) is that they look great, but I am usually disappointed with the substance. I love Star Trek (the original series and Enterprise), but not Next Gen, DS9 or Voyager (although, Voyager got better towards the end) and it is really hard for me to resist buying some slickly packaged memorabilia or DVDs. Had to resist buying Season 2 of Dr. Who for the same reason - it was crap (although Season 3 was much better - although, Russel T. Davies still writes crappy stories)
