Anyway, this evening I was doing my typical surfing and suddenly thought "I ought to take a look at eBay". Now, aside from the 1¢ CD shopping I'd been doing a month or so back, I've not been "eBaying" much since Daughter #1 lost interest in Pokemon cards. I had, however, at some point put a couple of copies of HELP! in my "watch" thing there, and (while those were long since closed) they reminded me that I had been thinking of picking that up. On a whim, I dropped the info into the search box, and found ... an amazing deal!
One vendor (who doesn't specialize in movies) had a never-opened copy of the 1995 restored/remasterd re-release on VHS on a "buy-it-now" deal for under $6 with shipping under $3 ... frankly, I could turn around and sell this over on Amazon for almost 10x what I paid (the cheapest "new"/"sealed" copy there is going for $74.29!), so I'm feeling pretty good about getting this for under nine bucks delivered.
Anyway ... I guess some part of the psi universe was keeping an eye on what was happening over there and prodded me in the right direction. I guess it's kind of like getting a nicely unexpected Crowleymass gift today!
Go me (and, of course, my HGA)!
