Today's random video find in Dad's new collection is:
Boxed set of "Queer as Folk" on DVD.
Akira Kurosawa's "Dreams" on laser disc.
8 copies of "Pretty Woman" on VHS.
You may return to your homes.
" Boxed set of "Queer as Folk" on DVD."
I'm assuming that's the American version. Use it for a doorstop. Get him the original, British miniseries. It's better written with better sex. ;)
8 copies of Pretty Woman? EIGHT? Is he planning on giving them away as gifts?
Uncle had a very eclectic collection, and was a HUGE Richard Gere fan. When Dad inherited the collection, we found these. We're still finding stuff. I'll probably post some of the more interesting ones from time to time just for giggles. :-)
Let's just say Christmas is probably covered for the next several decades, and leave it at that.
No fair, you found the pretty woman collection the first day.
I even have a photo of it
Yes, but I'm POSTING about it today.
Hate Julia Roberts and her stupid "hooker with a heart of gold" movie. That hasn't stopped me for seeing it at least 3 times, though. I didn't pay for it though, I swear!
Also, she kind of reminds me of Kevin Costner, who has one flat way of speaking that he uses for every single character, in every single movie. They should combine their efforts to make something truly special and modern. I picture the dialogue something like this for a "climactic" scene:
KC: No. Wait. Don't shoot. I love you.
JR. I love you too. That's why I have to shoot you.
KC: Please don't do this. You'll regret it.
JR: Yes. Yes I will. But I have no choice.
KC: I didn't cheat on you and rat you out to the feds at the same time. I swear it.
JR: I don't believe you. *bang*
KC: I have to tell you something important. The money is in .... *slump*
You know, it's posts like this that really make me wish LJ had "video comments."
I want to make that into a short film right now.
"Dances with Death"
"Starring Kevin Costner and Julia Roberts"
Ooh, no webcam or else I'd act it out with sock puppets.
I WANT SOCK PUPPET MOVIES!
This can be arranged. I'll call my production company "Sock Puppet Shorts." Or "Stinky Fingers."
(I always wear 100% pure clean sox so that is somewhat deciptive advertising). (Also, I just realized that "Stinky Fingers" could refer to a lot of different things. Yucky things. Shameful things.) (Thirdly, I'm now into doing the parenthesis, but I have nothing more to say.) (Done now).
OK SOMEONE SEND PLK A WEBCAM STAT!
MRS V, do you think your dad would notice if you slowly started ebaying the extra copies?
If she did that, then how could he say he had 8 copies of pretty woman.
I hope you will not mind if I "friend" you. I have been missing all this wonderful commentary.
How about Kevin Costner and Julia Roberts dressed as sock puppets designed to look like Kevin Costner and Julia Roberts? Think about it: LIFE-SIZED SOCK PUPPETS! HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE??
Only if I can friend you back. That way, you can see the friends only entries too!
But they are not as funny.
