For those who might care to know, or who own the Mr. Brown cover of the Reservoir Dogs spec ed DVD, as I do, will want to hear this:
The other day, I went down to the local used movie/music store called Orbit. I was browsing through their selection of used DVD's and I happen to notice they had Reservoir Dogs in that section. It was the copy I had, the Mr. Brown cover as I stated previously, so just for kicks, I checked out the price. To my shock it was $84.99!!!
I thought to myself "this must be some sort of mistake, a typo or something", so I decided to call it to their attention. I didn't want to deny some poor shmuck the pleasure of owning the Mr. Brown cover. So I went up to one of the employees with the DVD in my hand, and I asked him what the deal with high price was. He said "oh, that's some rare copy of the movie, I think it's out of print". My response was of confused jubilation. I just laughed and said "cool", then put the DVD back.
I was thinking about selling them my copy and then buying the Mr. Pink cover or something, and getting like $30 extra. I kind of want to keep it, though. Understandably so. I also have the now OOP Criterion DVD of Straw Dogs. That went out of print on the first of Jan.
So, apparently, I ROCK.
