Well, I’ve been ordering a few things from Amazon lately, and surprising myself at the entertainment value I’m getting from everything!
Firstly I ordered Stargate SG-1, the complete series. Yes, that’s all 10 seasons with 4 bonus discs.
It’s FANTASTIC! The box even has a 3D stargate on the side. The discs themselves are identical to the previous boxed sets, but this one has the extra discs of special features. I’ve been slowly working through series 1,2 and 3, I’d almost forgotten how brilliant the show is. It makes much more sense when you watch it all in a short amount of time, instead of spreading 10 seasons out over 10 years. The bonus features are basically the documentaries that were cut out of previous discs, or only aired on TV (ie Behind the scenes of the 200th episode).
My next DVD will be Futurama – Bender’s Big Score, which I am very excited about!
I also managed to get George Clinton – The Mothership Connection on DVD. Although the video quality is fairly poor, the audio sounds great for something that old. It really captures how brilliant Parliament/Funkadelic were, and how lavish their stage shows were.
As far as CD’s, I have an album “Outta Here” by a band called “Lettuce”. Amazon has been recommending that I buy this for about 3 years, because it matches my interests. I can see that Amazon was right, it’s the funkiest thing I’ve heard in months! I also have “Live in Tokyo”, also by Lettuce. This one has very unusual packaging, it’s apparently biodegradable. It was also one of the easiest CD’s to open I’ve ever bought, it’s basically in this plastic bag thing sealed by 2 stickers. The plastic is biodegradable too!
Also got “David Benoit – Right Here, Right Now” and “Euge Groove – Just Feels Right”, so plenty of smooth jazz to keep me going while I’m working at night.
This weekend is the highlight of my year, Royal Crown Revue are playing in Adelaide! Saw them 2 years ago, and they were unbelievably good, so I’m very excited about Saturday night. They have a new album apparently too.
Anyway, almost time to catch the buses to work, starting at 12:15pm, finish at 8:30. I might go around to Hindley afterwards and listen to some jazz at the Worldsend, I have tomorrow off so it won’t matter if I stay out late tonight.
