The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Listen up, People Edition!

Hey-o! Just a short little missive today to tell you about a new podcast episode that we’ve just released onto an unsuspecting public! Join myself, Dylan and special guest star, Josie (Alex was off doing his MMA training), as we have a few drinks and take a deep dive into the film Across 110th Street and watch Anthony Quinn punch his way through crime!

And just a reminder that I’ve still got lots of nifty things for sale – movies, mugs, T-shirts (going fast!) and Ghibli socks. Check out the website for more details. And if you’re on the Instagrams or the Facebooks, I post new films for sale there a few times a week. You can also email me with stuff you’re looking for.

Hope that everyone is doing alright out there!

The Black Dog Newsletter: The Last of Us/Happy Holidays Edition!

Greeting fellow humans! Just wanted to toss off a few bon mots during this festive (for some) time of year!

We still have things for sale, and I know how much ya’ll like things: Mugs, T-Shirts, Ghibli socks. Movies. This will be the final run of all the swag (we won’t have any more after this) so get them while you can.

You can order them from the website or send me a note – – to arrange local (cheaper) pick-up.

We should have our (2nd) Christmas movie podcast out later this week followed by our best of the year picks in a couple of weeks.Try to remain calm while waiting for these.

I hope that everyone is doing well out there. It can be a trying time of the year for folks (especially with no video store on the Drive!) so I hope you have some friends and or family that you like to help get through the holidays.

Me? I’ll be watching movies, drinking some nog and eating some foods. If you need some Christmas film recommendations, look no further than the Black Dog Video Movie Advent Calendar!

Cheers to you all!

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Is it Time Edition?

Now that the weather seems like it might be getting cooler (and appropriate for this time of year), you can all start wearing shirts again! And it just so happens that we just got in our brand-new Black Dog Video T-shirts! You can enjoy this Saul Bass, Anatomy of a Murder inspired shirt and be the envy of all who know you! We’ve also re-upped on the classic “Dogtropolis” design. Both are available through the website or if you just want to pay cash for a local pick-up, let me know.

And we have lots of Ghibli socks available as well. Christmas is coming!

I just added a bunch of documentaries and a few other bits to the site for purchase! Lots of good stuff at great prices! Christmas is coming!

Don’t forget to check out our Halloween horror movie recommendations! I post one a day for your scary season enjoyment!

I hope that everyone is doing well out there! Miss you all (almost all)!

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: All the Haunts Edition!

So as we wind our way through Halloween month (October), I just wanted to pass on a few notes:

 

We just released a new podcast episode! Dylan couldn’t make it for this one (he was too busy getting all the eels out of his hovercraft) so Josie popped by to join Alex and myself as we dug into the strange weirdness of Lost Highway. Listen in here. Ooh! And we have a special Halloween episode coming soon!

 

Also! I’ve been adding lots of awesome DVDs and Blu Rays to the website – new and previously loved – (scroll down from the “Home” page) for you to buy and cherish. Prices are mucho affordable.

 

Also! I’ve been publishing our annual Horror Movie a Day Recommendation on the site to fill your hearts with scariness. Follow along here. (Note – I’ll be out of town for a week and will pick up the list upon my return).

Also! We had a bit a snafu with the T-shirts but I’m hoping we’ll have them in stock next week. You can pre-order the classic Dogtropolis here if you like and we’ll be debuting a swell new one soon as well!

 

I hope that I didn’t bend your ear too far. Enjoy the alarmingly nice weather out there. Talk at you soon.

As we ease into the best season (IMO) – FALL- love the cool air, the changing leaves and the sounds of chestnuts banging off of car roofs – I’m here to tell you a few things!

More films have been added to the previously viewed sales section of the website and more are still to come! Remember I only have one copy of each so first come, first serve. I’ve also dropped the prices on most of these lovely items and included the condition of the disk in the description. We can ship anywhere in Canada for cheap (and for a fair price, outside our secure borders as well).

New T-Shirts should arrive next week plus we’re re-upping on the classic Dogtropolis design – You can pre-order those here.

If you haven’t checked out our latest podcast, dig in here. It’s one of our best (IMO).

 

And lastly but not leastly, our pals over at VIFF (starts next week) asked me to tell you about something cool.

That’s it for this week, folks! Follow me on Letterboxd for some movie reviews and what not and check out the website starting October 1st for our annual Daily Horror Movie Recommendations!

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: So Many Things Edition!

Hi everybody! It’s been a while since I yakked at you. I miss you all and everything about the Black Dog experience (almost everything) so it’s nice to sit down and tell you what’s happening.

We just launched the new updated website! I’ve been adding lots of films for purchase, new and used (Go to the Home section). Check it out here! I’ll be adding more of the films we had left over from the sale all the time. There’s still lots of great titles left, lots of rare, out-of-print lovelies, and I’ve made the prices as awesome as I could (starting at $6!)! For the previously viewed stuff, I only have one copy of each title so first come first serve. You can order and pre-order new films being released as well. If there’s something you’re looking for but don’t see, send me a note and I’ll see what I can do.

Also, we have a new episode of the podcast! Listen in as your favourite hosts sign up for Starship Troopers! We had a blast with this one and I think you might as well.

Also, we have lots of Studio Ghibli socks in stock, I have but one Black Dog mug left and we should have a brand new T-shirt design soon as well as re-upping on the classic “Dogtropolis” design.

Also, my good buddy Shawn is responsible for the cool Black Dog website and he’s looking for more clients. He does good work. If you like what you see, check out his website here.

One more thing – I’ve had a few former customers express their sadness over not getting recommendations for films (and the shop being closed, of course). If you’re interested, follow me on Letterboxd or feel free to email me and I’ll give you something to seek out.

I think that’s it for this edition, my lovelies. I hope that everyone is doing OK out there. Talk soon. xoxo

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.
