Clandestine DVD Pickups of the Week

I spent the better part of this afternoon out and about in the city... I got stuck trying to get a taxi ride back to my apartment, I waited for almost 2 hours. I got a ride back thanks to one of the most madcap taxi drivers I've ever met, and that's saying something considering the Devil May Care nature of China's transportation. The mission of the day was to grab a couple of DVDs from my favy DVD shop and going out to the Wal-Mart to get some deodorant... I ended up with a big stack of classic DVDs.

Clandestine DVD Pickups of the Week

I'm recovering from a 2 1/2 hour volleyball match I had this weekend; I played with some other foreigners in a cage surrounded on all sides by sweaty Chinese students playing tennis and basketball. The game was fun, as much fun as a game could be in heavy humidity. It was like a Crayola Crayon box of racial-equality: 4 Americans, 4 Africans, 3 Middle-Easterns 2 Chinese and 2 women. While I nurse my out-of-shape muscles I decided to update you with my most recent batch of Clandestine DVDs. 
  • Marvel Movie Collection: Spider-man 1-3, X-Men 1-3 and Wolverine, Punisher and Punisher Warzone, Fantastic Four 1&2, Hulk and Incredible Hulk
  • Terminator 1-3 and Terminator Salvation
  • Avatar
  • Chinatown
  • Metropolis
  • The Complete Star Trek collection: Star Trek, Next Generation, Deep Space 9, Voyager and Enterprise

I'm making plans for an excursion to Shenzhen and Hong Kong in the coming weeks...
