It's been dead around here last couple of days?
mpm74 could not get in the site because his account was wiped out by the losing of the data. I hope he creates a new account.

But yeah it is a little dead lately (though I did put a longish post on here.)

That's a nice collection of box-sets there, dude. The Japanese get some of the best editions. But that's also because they consume more stuff there, so the companies always give them the extras. I had those 2 Kill Bill Japanese boxes with the T-shirts and toy figures and all that stuff. I ended up selling them, though, just like with the rest of my collector's crap. I certainly got a lot less than what I bought them for when they came out. I had the Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse Japanese edition with the 6 DVDs looking like Jukebox discs - bought it for like a 100 euros, and got like 30 euros for it after I sold it a few years later, haha. So, no more collecting for me. I can't be arsed to carry all that stuff around when I move around.


Finland is very beautiful. I imagine Japanese people liking Finland a lot. I know Mumin is quite popular in Japan, and Japanese people like to go to the Muminland in Finland. Well, I know Yasuko from Melt Banana liked Finland a lot, from one interview she gave at the Ilosaarirock Festival. Video is gone now, but she talked about it.

Cool pictures, though.
Cheers!

Finland is kinda popular in Japan among those who know something about Finland.

Half of my girlfriend's friends think I'm from the Philippines, though Image

What ever happened to Bradavon? I come back here occasionally and good to see the same group of people still active here, except Brad.

-I- DID enjoy that lovely honeymoon in Barbados.

Obviously, Brad was tossed off the boat the minute our ship left shore and reached deep waters.

It's that time of the year again when I wish I were in Finland. Night Visions film festival! The Last Hunter (1980), War Between the Planets (1966), Kill or Be Killed (1976), Nekromantic (1987), Nekromantic 2 (1991) and a lot more. Film screening of course, digital crap only for the new films.

This is silly story.

Why didnt she just tell them to stop doing it?
If it happened over and over for a month and it made her upset, I think thats OTT though.

I thought wasting police time was a criminal offence?

Hey,
I have a quick DDD House question, I'm going to order the 36th Chamber BD set but its obviously going to be way over the customs limit, could I ask them to write a different value (say $US20) on the package?
