Well, I caved in yesterday and splurged.

on DVD:

1. Being John Malkovich
2. L.A. Confidential
3. Goodfellas
4. Manhattan
5. Annie Hall
6. Jeff Buckley - Live in Chicago

on CD:

1. Guided By Voices, "Isolation Drills"
2. Stephen Malkmus, s/t
3. Aceyalone, "Accepted Eclectic"

It was one of those things, you know, I've been hoarding what little money I can from each paycheck, and I hadn't bought anything non-food-related in at least a month. At one point I was holding 9 DVDs in my hands, but decided against "Carlito's Way", "Almost Famous" (hadn't seen it yet), and "American Beauty" (seen it a bazillion times). I'm kinda disappointed in the DVD availability in NYC - it's really hard to find certain movies, like "Monty Python's Meaning of Life", or even most Coen Brothers films (besides "Fargo", which is just about everywhere). Apparently "Delicatessen" hasn't been released on DVD yet, which is a goddamn travesty. Speaking of which, when the hell are the Indiana Jones movies gonna come out on DVD? Or the Godfather movies?

Gotta quickly do some work.
