Podcast episode #63 – Event Horizon!

We’re back with a new episode of the podcast! Alex couldn’t make it – he had to clean out the eels from his hovercraft – so we had a pinch hitter step in! Listen in as local raconteur Axel Matfin joins Dylan and I to discuss Event Horizon! And Forest Gump for some reason. Enjoy!

All the Podcasts in the World!

I’ve recently noticed that not all of our fine podcasts are listed on the site here. Not too sure why. Lousy technology. But here’s a link to them all!

The Black Dog Newsletter: Cover Those Feet Edition!

Hey, looky-looky, we just got a new shipment of the famed Studio Ghibli socks back in stock! Only $10 a pair (yes you get two socks!) and $3 shipping anywhere in Canada. For local pickup, I can meet you on the Drive pretty much anytime in Spy vs Spy fashion.

I only have a few mugs left so jump on those as well. And a couple of new T-shirt designs are on the way! Exciting times despite us not existing in real life anymore.

Speaking of real life, Soulessenatials opens this Saturday in our old location. Very nice folks and, despite it looking weird and sad every time I walk by the old place, I hope they do well!

I’ve added a bunch of upcoming releases to the website (still in the process of making it more user friendly) if you want to add to your collection –https://www.facebook.com/blackdogvideo
If you need/want anything else, let me know –

One more thing – Josie ran into a customer on the street the other day who feels bad he never paid up his outstanding late charges and wanted to make amends. If your guilty conscience is keeping you up at night, you can take care of this as well. See above email.

I miss you all very much and I hope everyone is doing excellent! Talk soon.

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Faded Beauty Edition!

So, this is the official last photo ever taken of this faded beauty of a movie store. Sad to see it go but I wish all the best to the new folks taking it over (a record store plus shop). They are very nice people and I think it will be a good fit for the Drive.

I have one more copy of each of these for sale. Out of the Blue – Blu Ray. Beatles – DVD. Hit me up while you can. And if there’s anything you want to buy, let me know..

 

We also got a new shipment of the famous In Dog We Trust mugs back in stock. Can be purchased through the website. If you choose “local pickup”, I can meet you on the Drive to exchange goods as the shipping is fairly expensive. Same goes for films and such.

Also more Studio Ghibli socks are on the way as are a couple of T-shirts designs. Stay tuned!

One more thing! The website is currently being redone so I can start adding items we have left over from the sale. Here’s a taste…

 

So long, you feisty little scamp you…

The Black Dog Video Newsletter! Out of the Blue and Into Your Home Edition!

Just a shorty this time around…For some reason it seems that folks are still interested in our story. Here’s quite an excellent little video about the waning days of the shop. If I look tired in it, it’s because I was tired.

Arriving this week to add to your collection!

Out of the Blue – A Vancouver favourite! Dennis Hopper directs & stars in this story of a young girl, whose father is an ex-convict and whose mother is a junkie, who finds it difficult to conform and tries to find comfort in a quirky combination of Elvis and the punk scene. Fancy New 4K Restoration! Blu Ray (DVDs and 4K can be ordered)!

Also have a DVD left of The Beatles: Get Back! Blu Rays can also be ordered!

The new re-tooled website should be up and running soon with tons of great films for sale. Stay tuned!

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Ears and Wallets Edition!


Another “last” concerning your (former) favourite video store – we just unleashed the last ever podcast to be recorded in the shop. We will continue to do the show, but it won’t be from the friendly confines of the video store. But please listen in here as the 3 of us louts have a couple of pops and discuss the classic retail comedy, High Fidelity!

I’ve been sorting through what’s left of the stock (still a few thousand titles it seems) to get ready to put them up for sale on the website. I’m just currently retooling the site to make it more user friendly. Please stay tuned. Meanwhile here’s just a dabbling of some new things you can order!

That’s it for this week, folks. I hope that everyone is OK out there. Be safe, be cool, maybe just be….

That’s All Folks!

It’s been a blast. Love to you all!

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: A Look Back, A Step Forward Edition!

As the sun sets and we lock up the gate for the last time, I thought it might be cool to look back where all this started. And why. And how…

The year was 1995, Batman Forever wormed its way into top spot in the theatres, “I’d Lie for You (And That’s the Truth)” by Meatloaf topped the musical charts and this fresh-faced, 30-year-old kid with a full head of hair just got off the boat from Ontario.
Read more….

We have a few things washing up on our shores for sale if you might be interested in! I can get more if these sell out as well. Go to the website to order!

The Beatles: Get Back – Spend 7 hours with your mom’s favourite band in this great documentary directed by Peter Jackson! DVD and Blu Ray.

Out of the Blue – Classic made-in-Vancouver punk film directed by Dennis Hopper gets a remastered treatment and is available and DVD, Blu Ray and 4K!

We will also have more of the classic Black Dog mugs back in stock soon.

I will be revamping and updating the website on what’s coming up to order and all that jazz. Please check in whenever you can.

It’s been a slice, folks. Hope to see you around the hood or online!
