Daft


0703 Layer Cake DVD
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
No, no, not the film, which I've been interested in seeing since Casino Royale. I looked for it then, and the only options were around $35 for the DVD of this film on its own, or $28 for this with two Guy Ritchie films (one of which I'd seen - Lock, Stock etc. - and the other which I'd no wish to see, based on the first). That's curiously daft for starters.

As is the fact that you'd think they'd see the marketing opportunity of folks being interested in Daniel Craig's oeuvre, and get his back catalogue out at reasonable prices.

Suddenly last week, and as you can see this WAS priced at $35, Layer Cake was on sale for $12.99. So I bought it (haven't had a chance to see it yet).

DVD pricing's an utter mystery. I'm grateful for price comparison sites like www.getonce.com.au so I can get some sort of peg on price variation on a given DVD title - and vary they do.

Rodent note: Yet another bait tray has vanished - well, almost, I can see the edge of it behind the fridge. Confirms my suspicions. Either this sucker's got superpowers, or it has to be feeling extremely unwell, if not downright (um, not ratty) seedy? Each morning my nose twitches for the odour of decaying rat, while my eyes check the bait tray status. Soooon...

I'm starting to think you need to add kryptonite to the next batch of rat poison!

I don't even want to think it might do with the benefit of kryptonite!!!!!!
