Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory

I hung out with Dave tonight. We hit Best Buy and the Mega Ginormous Chinese Buffet (because I once again got called in for a small computer job that paid me on the spot so I felt like splurging... yes again).

While I was at Best Buy, I aquired a bunch of old horror movies. I probably shouldn't have, but I just couldn't pass up such a deal cheesy horror (25 movies for less than $18.00) especially not ones with titles like:

  • The Gorilla - 1939
  • The Devil Bat - 1941
  • The Human Monster - 1939
  • The Invisible Ghost - 1939
  • The Ape Man - 1943
  • Carnival of Souls - 1962
  • Chamber of Horrors - 1940
  • The Last Man on Earth - 1924
  • White Zombie - 1932
  • The Wasp Woman - 1959
  • The Indestructable Man - 1956
  • Dementia 13 - 1963
  • The Devil's Hand - 1961
  • I Bury the Living - 1958
  • Horror Hotel - 1960
  • A Bucket of Blood - 1959
  • The Ape - 1940
  • Chrismtas Evil - 1960
  • The Ghost - 1963
  • Night of the Living Dead - 1968
  • The Snake People - 1968
  • Don't Look in the Basement - 1973
  • House on Haunted Hill (the Vincent Price one) - 1958
  • The House on the Edge of the Park - 1960
and last but not least
  • Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory -1961


Now I just need to get people over for a few good MST3K style screenings of all my newly aquired vintage schlock :)

Oh, and I also got a really sweat deal on a cheap DVD burner from OfficeMax (along with some cheap DVDs). Once I figure out how to do the whole DVD thing I'll be able to do some serious data back ups and umm.... other things :). Weee new toys that I can legally write off on next year's tax return (speaking of which I need to find a new case, Moya officially outgrew her current accomodations).

Anyways, time for bed. ttfn.

www.electroseller.com has some spiffy and non-beige cases :)
Well, I don't really care about the case color. I've painted cases before and I have power tools so chopping holes in them etc... is pretty trivial. The major concern is that I'm looking for something that can handle at least 5 ext 5.25" drives and 2 ext 3.5" drives. That actually limits my choices significantly.
nah, you just need to move into server case territory, seeing how "mid" towers have (generally) 4 5.25 slots.. servers usually have 6.

Might as ask how many 5.25 devises you've got?
I have 5 5.25" devices right now.

1 true 70X Cd-ROM drive
1 52X CD-RW
1 8x DVD-Rom
1 8x all format DVD burner
1 removable hard drive enclosure (so I can drop drives in without having to crack open the case and fiddle with cables).

plus

1 floppy
1 zip drive

I doubt that I'm likely to want to add any more external devices at this point. If I go with the 6/2 case that Dave pointed out I might just get some sort of external LCD readout of temp or something like that to fill out the extra bay.
ooooooooooooh.

thanks for geeking for me.
truly excellent movies, all :)
That remains to be seen. Assuming I can find some suckers folks to watch them with they should be highly entertaining if nothing else.
That is a bit excessive and not all that exciting. I've seen comparable cases for $20-$40 less.

Pretty fucking huge though.
er...forgot to include the more "sensible" one...

this one
...hmmm
Actually that one would be just about perfect. I needed 2 ext 3.5" drives bay and 5 ext 5.25" ones. so I could even throw in a temp display or something of that nature on the remaining bay.

Hmmm... now to save up a bit of $$$ (or get those rebates back) and I'm set.
