Like the websites product image, there is no depth to the shot.

     Recently our bank (ie; credit union, EECU, insert support local banks plug here) updated their online banking software suite. It’s really quite fantastic, and I am looking forward to using it to create a better household budget but the real kicker was that it had a link to a rewards program for my EECU Visa card I never knew existed. I think I may have seen something about it in one of the glossies that used to come with the billing statement years ago before I switched to email for paperless billing. I’ve had this card for about 12 years, and apparently I had racked up quite the cache of points. So I browsed their somewhat limited selection of goods and decided on a deluxe counter-top toaster as well as Megamind & Goonies on Blu-Ray.

     The toaster oven got here yesterday, and I unboxed all of it’s stainless steel goodness this morning. It really looks like it’s gonna toast up something yummy. Just wish I had something toastable in the house. Later this evening Brandon and I went outside to admire our hard days work putting up the Christmas lights on the house and decided to go get the mail. As I was reaching into the mailbox I heard the scraping of metal. ‘Ah! the key for the package box below!’ So I retrieved the package and sure enough it had the label of the rewards company on the outside of the package. Walking back to the house from the mailbox I noticed that the box was way too heavy for just two movies. Felt close to 2-3 lbs. So we got it inside and opened it up and inside was the mother of all 80’s collectors editions. I knew that the reward website mentioned that the Goonies was the 25th Anniversary Edition, but I figured this meant what most anniversary based packs meant, some extra features, if your lucky the material had been digitally remastered, if your real lucky they remastered it in true HD. This pack is nuts. It came with 10 high gloss, double sided storyboards from the production, mini reproductions of a collectors magazine made in the 80’s back when then movie was making a killing. Some mini mag from Spielberg & it’s own board game. Like a board game board game. With playing cards, little gold coins and little token pieces with the characters on them.

When too much Goonies is just not enough.

Just what I always needed. A my own, even smaller, Cory Spelman.

Watched Sherlock Holmes The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) the other night and loved it. Now watching Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1943). Getting to know Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce as Holmes & Watson is quite enjoyable. Especially when Holmes is in disguise (voice and dress) on screen in close ups and you don’t even notice it’s him at all until his reveals himself. Don’t make movies like this anymore. Characters are great. Think once I am done with my Cussler series, I will take up the Holmes series.
