We’ve got some big (hopefully) news for all you movie collectors and lovers (movie lovers that is)! I just acquired a sizable (over 1000) DVD collection and am planning a nutty event sale! Lots of great things – box sets, out of print titles, British fare, war docs and films, a smattering of Criterion titles and lots more – will be up for grabs on Saturday September 9th! As I don’t have a shop anymore, I’m trying something new and weird – YARD SALE! Yes, you read that right! I’m going to set up tables (I’ll need to borrow some) with as many DVDs on them as I can fit out front near my house on the corner of Victoria and Kitchener St in East Van. Looking at a noon start. CASH ONLY! There will be more details to come as I sort through all these boxes. I’m going to keep the prices insanely low – starting at $1 and going up from there. I’ll also have all remaining Black Dog shirts, mugs and Ghibli socks up for grabs! Bring your own bags/boxes/mini vans. It’s a grand experiment that I hope works out for everyone!
Also! We just released a fine new episode of the Black Dog Video After Dark podcast! Listen in as Darren and Dylan are joined by special guest comedian Harris Anderson to drink and discuss the 1987 cyber-violent satire Robocop… and drink. Darren tries desperately to pronounce the name Paul Verhoeven (VARE-HO-VEN) and fails every time (plus lots of other hilarity!). I had a lot of fun doing this one and I hope you enjoy it!
“Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law, listen to the podcast” – Robocop.
Thanks all for now. Stay tuned and keep watching the skies!
