First of the new year!

Went into HMV Manchester tonight and a lot of the DVD's had stickers on their spines with an X on it. Overheard a customer ask a member of staff what was happening to which he replied that they were getting ready for a sale next week, they didnt know much about it other than it was a 25% off thing! I've never seen them put these stickers on items before and there were loads of them! I had the impression it was a going out of business sale! Although I didnt see anything else stickered!

All well thanks. Thought I may have suffered a mini stroke
but it turned out to be a really bad migraine. Took a few
bloods and did some tests and did a CT, and nothing
showed up so I'm happy. Great to be back with my
wife and two girls

The RH box set contains the following movies.

It came from beneath the Sea.
Earth vs The flying saucers
20 million miles to earth
The 7th voyage of sinbad

Yeah I noticed those X stickers today but didn't think to ask about it. They don't seem to keep the staff informed about their promotions - when I was in last week I was told upon buying a box set I could get another one at half price. It was the start of the offer and no posters were up and the staff had only just heard about it themselves! Sounds like last minute attempts to keep the wolf for the door.

Although way too expensive on most stuff, Ill be sad to see it go. Even though I do most of my purchases online or from Fopp/Thats Entertainment/CEX and Bee. That 'Island of Lost Souls' steelbook I got tonight was from Bee and it was a bargain what with their 25% off sale at the moment!

My Newcastle HMV really isn't too bad to be honest. A lot of their stuff is reasonable and occasionally cheaper than online (seasons 1-5 of Dexter on DVD for 40 was a bargain 10 cheaper than Amazon). Nearly picked up two more boxsets in their offer but it was a couple of quid more than online and I have too much I watch at the minute anyway.

I'll have a look in Bolton on monday and see if the X's are present, if so a bit of a post-new year spree may be on the cards.
