Falling asleep in front of the computer, so I think it's time I tucked my wee brain in bed. But first! A post to celebrate the goodness of cheap entertainment!

I love Big Lots. I love when they have boxes bursting with rows of colorful DVDs, 'cause you never know what you'll find -- for three bucks! Here are the latest disks that caught my eye and are now in shrinkwrap in my home:

The Thief Lord. I know absolutely nothing about this movie except what's on the cover, which looked vaguely intriguing. Also, thanks to IMDB, I know that one of the stars has grown up to be quite a hottie. Oh internet, I love you so.

Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters. Never heard of it, but I do love me some horror and some Asian cinema, so two thumbs up already! Also, from reading the description, this could fall into Asian crack cinema territory. Dude, I am so there.

Thunderbirds Are Go (International Rescue Edition). Aiiii! You show me a man who doesn't enjoy crack puppet theater, and I'll show you a man with no soul. Team America World Police still holds the record as the funniest crack puppet theater EVAR, but the Thunderbird movies are fun too. Which takes us to...

Thunderbird 6 (International Rescue Edition). TCM showed three of these not too long ago, and this was by far the most fun and the funniest. Hooray! Now it's mine! Still shrinkwrap fresh, just waiting for the day when I need puppet hilarity the most.

Triple word score! DVDs containing multiple movies are genius. I just bought two:

I Walked with a Zombie / The Body Snatcher. Squee! I love, love, love old horror and sci fi movies. LOVE. Not so crazy about "I Walked", but I love "Body Snatcher", which is worth watching for the ending alone. Mmmmmmmm, creepy.

The Curse of Frankenstein / Taste the Blood of Dracula. I think both of these were originally Hammer films, and nothing says "Hammer Films" like fake blood so thick and neon that it looks like red tempera straight out of the jar. Also, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee star. Do I really need to say more?

OY. Okay, so one good headbutt later, a little light clicked on in my head and I was able to crop and resize my image using Seashore. Hooray! And I figured it out on my own, mostly! Unfortunately, the text I applied looks like complete and utter crap. Waaaah! My brain, she is hurting! She's not used to being used on the weekend, and learning to use Seashore is causing an uprising in my skull.

Writing! As usual, the ending is giving me grief. My New Year's revolution is to start writing the endings FIRST, then it'll all be gravy and chicken from that point forward. YES. Well...lumpy gravy and chicken with splintery bones, perhaps, but you get my drift.

I'm craving a donut, but we currently have no donuts in the house. There could be a few Little Debbie blueberry muffinlets left, though. Off to investigate, and then write. ::cries::
