Speaking of DVD's

Aj's been a bad boy!

I had decided that I was going to buy myself Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring on DVD for my birthday. So after gym this evening, I drove down to the local K-mart (since they are advertising that they have the lowest priced copy of the DVD/Video, or they'll beat it by 10%) to get it.

I go in, and grab a copy (since they have a big display at the front of the store), and then wander over to the entertainment section to see what else is there (with no intention of buying anything else). I'm about half way there, and a really good song comes on over the stores sound system (Desert Rose by Sting, I love the song!).

Since the entertainment section tends to play their own music, I decide instead to wander around the store for a bit listening to the song, before going to the entertainment section once the song is finished.

While wandering (and listening) I notice a sign saying that if you spend over $150 on your Coles/Myer card, you don't have to pay anything off it for three months. Now I know that I've got about $400 available on my card, so I decide, why not!

So, instead of buy one DVD, I bought 12!

They are:
* Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
* Star Trek: First Contact
* Unbreakable
* The Crow (of course!)
* Starship Troopers Special Edition
* Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Special Collectors Edition
* The Abyss Special Edition
* Fight Club Special Edition
* Babylon 5: The Gathering/In the Beginning
* The Fifth Element
* The Matrix
* Top Gun

I could have quite easily bought more, but I decided to show some restraint.

Not bad
Not a single DVD there that you could be ashamed of having in the collection, although a couple might raise a wry grin.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
