    So Big Lots usually sucks. I stop in from time to time to check out the KO RID and BW figs. (They suck, btw. Don't bother.)

    From time to time I'll find something pretty cool, usually around the holidays, but today I really lucked out and if you've got a Big Lots near you, you might want to head over.

    The DVD selection usually consists of old Tae-Bo, Yoga, and those no-quality public domain flicks. But the section today was loaded and I couldn't believe some of the stuff I picked up for 3 bucks a piece:

    Flatliners
    The Three Burials of Meliquiades Estrata
    Christine (non SE)
    Memento (LE!)
    Awakenings
    Warriors of Heaven and Earth
    Steamboy
    Ali (Director's Cut)
    Batman - 1941 serial collection.
    I Know What You Did Last Summer

    Some of these are older discs, but that Batman and Three Burials have been out for only a year or so. All of 'em were widescreen.

    These weren't the only titles, just the only ones I'd pay 3 bucks for. Not Mr. Deeds and XXX. Woulda piked up Wild Things, but it was fs.

    So I've got my arms full of movies and I passed through the *ahem* "cologne section" and almost had a heart attack. Stuffed in between the Old Spice, Bod manfume, and CK One KOs, they had a gift set of PS by Paul Sebastian for 20 bucks, which included the 4 oz spray cologne, a 4oz aftershave, and a 2.5 oz deodorant stick. I have no clue how it ended up at Big Lots. Possibly because Wal Mart tried to integrate higher quality colognes a year or so ago and are now trying to phase them out.

    A package like that could easily run you about 75 bucks at a department store. I went ahead and bought it, even though I was worried it might be old and breaking down, but I opened it and it hasn't.

    "PS Cologne by Paul Sebastian, Launched by the design house of Paul Sebastian in 1979, PS is classified as a refined, subtle, oriental fragrance. This masculine scent possesses a blend of lavender, sage, jasmine, rose, amber and musk. It is recommended for evening wear."

    If you are still reading now and saying "WTF is your point, Jiggs?", then here it is: This stuff is like chick-attractant. They love it. Y'know, the type of stuff that you start making out with a lady, you can tell she's trying to maintain control, you go for the neck, she takes a whiff and says "Oh God, you smell sooo good." And then she goes into horny chick mode and starts biting you. Well, it's that kind of stuff.

    O.k., went off on a little tangent there, but the point is that I found some cool stuff for cheap at Big Lots today.

    Batman Begins has only been out two years, so that would make this 2 years. Still, it retails for 20 on Amazon.
