Magentamom and I watched the CSI episode A Space Oddity
over the weekend. This had the dual effect of putting in the mood for con season and putting me doubly in the mood for some old-school sci-fi.
So - as a reward for kicking yard tail on Saturday and as motivation for tackling much over due laundry folding Sunday (instead of being outside) - I headed out to a local video store (a chain store) to pick up something (Space 1999, ST:TOS, original BSG, original Doctor Who, something) to watch on my DVD.
Okay, fine, local book store chain B1 had a good selection of DVDs last I checked. While I didn't want to buy something, maybe I could get a deal.
Again no dice. It looks as if they are getting out of the DVD business.
Frustrated now, I head to yet another book store chain (B2). Not only do they have a much better selection of DVDs, but when the clerk overheard me mention Star Trek to my brother on my cell phone, he became immediately helpful, pointing out several options not in the regular racks.
I picked up the Star Trek Time Travel Fan Collective and the store now has my DVD business.
Of course, now I am in the mood for some sci fi gaming that reproduces the mood of the sci fi of my youth....
