The Last Thing You Bought

Postby Nervosa » Sun Jan 14, 2007 12:10 am

This is aimed at items such as CDs/clothing/books/games etc... rather than food products such as a white loaf and a pint of milk.

Today I bought...

- a nice red wine coloured shirt from River Island.

Then I hit HMV, but didn't buy DVDs. Instead I bought four books:

- Muhammad Ali (biography)
- 102 Minutes (about people inside the Towers on 9/11)
- Donnie Brasco (having enjoyed the film so much)
- The Making Of Raging Bull

That's a beautiful name, like River Phoenix! In fact, that's who it reminds me of. Now every time that store is mentioned, I'll think of the good Mr Phoenix.

The last thing I bought was the two DVDs, Dead Poets Society and Running On Empty - both great additions to my DVD collection, might I add.

That reminds me, this is also supposed to be a different thread to the "Last DVD You Bought" thread :lol: But I'm glad you like your purchases, BGF.

Well, they were the last things I bought.

Do try to check out the Phoenix boy sometime, though.

Another recent purchase was the book Astral Dynamics by Robert Bruce. I haven't started reading it yet (I'm reading one of the astral projection books I got for Christmas; Journeys Out of the Body by Robert Monroe) but it looks interesting. Robert Bruce himself can be found on this website:

http://www.astraldynamics.com

Also, I'm thinking of spending a bit more money in the future - I saw the DVD River Wild in Music Zone, and it looks interesting - should I spend any money on it? I don't know much about it, but the story sounds interesting.

I bought the book The Killing Joke by Anthony Horowitz.

It sounds pretty interesting. Here's the blurb on the back:

"When Guy Fletcher protests at a sick joke he overhears in a pub he finds himself headbutted and struck by an idea in quick succession. Is it possible to trace a joke all the way back to its original source?

Guy's quest takes him across the UK, from a humourless Hungarian dentist to a group of giggling grave-diggers, from a hypractive troupe of boy scouts to half a dozen undercover detectives. And along the way some pretty odd things are happening. Guy is sure he's being followed by an Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman. He has an unfortunate accident on a banana skin. There's a fly in his soup, an army of nuns on his train - and an exploding house in Cambridge...Guy is on the verge of discovering something very unpleasant. Making jokes is no laughing matter."

I've been looking through it and reading bits and pieces - it's pretty interesting and funny.

Do you like Anthony Horowitz's other books, Cakey? I like the Alex Rider series, and I also like his books about the Diamond Brothers - have you read them? I read when when I was about 10/11 years old and loved them. I haven't read them in ages, but I might revisit them sometime. They're aimed at the 9-12 bracket, but they were pretty funny.

When I was younger, he was one of my favourite author's - he's written some great children's books.

I've read five out of the six Alex Rider books (Stormbreaker, Point Blanc, Skeleton Key, Eagle Strike ad Scorpia) and they were fantastic. They were the kind of books that were so exciting that you'd take them to read on holiday and end up spending the entire trip with your nose in them. I still prefer Harry Potter, but this series was great. They made the first book into film last summer I hear, but I never got around to watching it.

I also read 'The Switch', 'Grosham Grange' and 'Granny' by him as well. 'The Killing Joke' is his only novel for adults though.

I saw it. It was quite good, but I prefer the book overall. They also included elements from later books - Sabina Pleasure was a character, even though she's not introduced until the third book.

Why can't I find books that cheap?

I hope you enjoy them, Cakey.

I got them at my local library. There not in very condition, but you can't argue with such cheap prices.

A couple of books by New Scientist which contain an assortment of obscure but fascinating facts about nature. Also bought a veggie cookbook. All 3 books were part of a birthday present for a mate, who as you might guess, has a keen interest in reading, cooking, science, and is a vegetarian. :P

I large painting of Brando as Don Corleone. In my room, I've got one of Pachino as Tony Montana hanging on the opposite wall. Then two more of B&W 1930s New York City. I suppose I've got a bit of a them, they're all Brown/Black&White.
