I’m Rich! (sorta)


No, I didn’t hit the lottery (yet). I just turned in a few months worth of bottles and cans and I have money burning a hole in my pocket. I could spend it all on beer and lottery tickets, or I could waste it on a new DVD from Wallyworld.

Any advice? The newest DVD I own is Silver Linings Playbook. I also bought Identity Thief and Bridesmaids a while back and they were both so bad I never finished watching them and gave them to my retarded nephew. He enjoyed them, but he loves fart jokes.

Please help me waste my money. Right now I’m leaning towards Pitch Perfect. Any better ideas?

(WARNING: If you suggest anything with Tom Cruise I will ban your ass.)

This is an open thread.

    Apparently Catness felt ignored because she just jumped up on my desk and flopped down on my keyboard.

    Have you seen Safety Not Guaranteed? It’s the only movie I’ve seen recently that I even remember. I only remember the really good ones or the really bad ones, and it was really good.

    • Klown says:

      Is it worth watching over and over? If I am gonna invest money in a movie I want something I will watch more than once.

      • elliesmom says:

        I don’t watch movies over and over, but Elliesdad does. He loves “Undercover Blues”, “Ruthless People”, and “What’s Up Doc” for comedies – at least that’s the dialogue I hear coming out of the man cave.

    • gxm17 says:

      The only movies I ever watch over and over are Steven Seagal movies, so I’m the wrong person to ask.

    You can rent a lot of dvds from redbox for the price of 1 discounted dvd from walmart

  5. Klown says:

    I am thinking about checking the $5 bin at Wallyworld. Sometimes there are some old classics in there.

  6. westcoaster says:

    It’s probably not at Walmart, but I just watched this on TV a few days ago- The Scapegoat (the original is also good, with Alec Guiness, but this version is a hidden gem):

  7. Klown says:

    Okay, I blew my money.

    Instead of a new release DVD I got 4 movies from the $5 bargain bin – Boondock Saints, Once Upon A Time In America, Friends With Benefits and From Paris With Love.

    I even had enough left over for beer and lottery tickets! I bought a Mega Million and a Powerball, but I came up .20 cents short of having enough to buy a Super Lotto too.

    Not a bad trade for a trunkload of bottles and cans.

    Watching Boondock Saints now. It’s a cult classic.

    • Klown says:

      A bag of peanuts would be nice right now. Salted in the shell.

      But then my teeth would hurt tomorrow and I’m supposed to avoid salt.

    • Klown says:

      William Dafoe is one of the most underrated/underappreciated actors of his generation. He’s kinda like a younger version of Christopher Walken.

      To Live and Die in LA was awesome.

    • Somebody says:

      Hmmm I don’t think I’ve seen any of those movies I’ll have to check my local wallyworld bargain bin.

      Have you by chance ever seen a movie called Eulogy? It’s an interesting sort of dark comedy.

      I was trying to come up with something maybe you’d never thought about. I can suggest some Tom Cruise movies if you want, LOL!!

      BTW good luck on the lottery, I was thinking about buying a ticket too. I’d be happy with 5 out of 6……heck happy to win anything and piss my money away, but 5 out of 6 would be a nice chunk of change.

    when you watch once a upon a time in America. there is a scene where Robert DiNero goes to a locker in the Hoboken train station. in the background there is a little wooden shack on the platform. I called crews from that shack.
    the painted the station for the movie and even painted over the lightbulbs.
    the bar scenes when they were young were filmed in the Clam broth House.in Hoboken. the shoeshine stand in the station was still there when I worked there
    It was a very good movie.

    There is a lot of hate out there today for Dubya. I didn’t like the man or vote for him. I don’t like Obama and I didn’t vote for him either. But if I met either one of them I would shake his hand and call him “Mr. President”. Respect the office, not the man.

  10. Klown says:

    Watching Once Upon a Time in America. A young Jennifer Connelly upstages everyone.

  11. DeniseVB says:

    Well here’s something you may watch over and over …. 😀

    a movie that scared me more than any horror film ever
    The Bedford Incident. Sidney Poitier and Richard Widmark.
    at the time in was possible for the incident to really happen

    • Klown says:

      The movie the scared me the most was Let’s Scare Jessica To Death. It is a hippie vampire movie. I was about 6th grade when I saw it.

      Hellraiser grossed me out.

  13. SimoFish says:

    My favorite movie right now is The Help.

    • Klown says:

      The book is good too.

    • Klown says:

      I’m watching the Giants/Brewers game. They are showing this nicely dressed suburban mom type who is holding a Bud Light in an orange Hulk fist and screaming “Grab some pine, Meat!” every time a Brewer strikes out.

    Trying this: Beer Bread

    3 c. flour
    3 tsp. baking soda (omit if using self-rising flour)
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 c. sugar
    1 -12 oz. can of beer
    1/4 c. melted butter

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients; add beer. Do not over mix! Put into greased loaf pan. Pour melted butter over mixture. Bake 1 hour.

    I almost forgot to mention:

    When I was at the recycling center today there was a black lady in line in front of me with two teenage boys I assume were her sons. Nice looking people, well dressed.

    When they started dumping out their bags of aluminum cans there were a bunch of Arizona Tea Watermelon cans in with the other stuff.

    I didn’t say nothin’

    There are rules for the common people and rules for their “leaders,” and only in rare cases do the same rules cover both. Chris Morran at the Consumerist points out how politicians (yet again) are being allowed to ignore the same laws that affect their constituents. Colorado legislators are immune from speeding tickets and parking tickets thanks to the special plates issued to lawmakers — ones that aren’t included in the DMV database.

    According to CBS Denver, the info for these particular license plates is never entered into the DMV database, so when some state senator goes zooming by a speed camera, he or she won’t get a ticket, because the camera system looks up the license plate number through the DMV. Since no info comes up, no ticket is given.

    This appears to be true for parking tickets as well. See, even though a parking enforcement officer might leave a ticket on the car, cities like Denver that rely on the DMV for addresses of vehicle owners come up empty when they try to collect on those tickets.

    On the parking ticket side alone, there are $2,100 worth of unpaid tickets linked to these “invisible” plates. The Dept. of Public Works has decided it’s “too costly” to pursue collection of those fines. Of course, now that this is public knowledge, a politician has “stepped up” to right the wrong.
