So we rent movies at Blockbuster. Yes, the actual store. While I might not be in the majority crowd when I say this, I actually like Blockbuster! I like walking around the store, looking at the DVD covers, picking one up, having it in my hand while I walk around looking for something better. We have a subscription to the dvd-in-the-mail thing like Netflix, except it's with Blockbuster and we are also allowed to take in our mail DVDs into the store and exchange it right there for a DVD. I like that, so does Ying, because that means we can have a movie right now if we want it. Comes with the plan.

So a bit of background on how we choose DVDs. I like action flicks; Ying likes chick flicks:

Anyway, this post is about how I was tricked into watching a movie with Substance. This is how I chose the movie "The Solist" as my action flick:

So later that night after Bonnie's asleep, I go and pop in the DVD and start it up. I'm doing other things like picking up toys, checking email etc, and 20 minutes into the movie and I'm thinking to myself, "When's someone gonna get killed or beat up or something?"

I start to get suspicious and think maybe they put the wrong DVD in the box, so I look on the coffee table for the DVD cover and to my surprise, that shotgun barrel... WTF? is actually the neck of a ... WTF? That's a cello. SONOFA...!

So anyway, that's how I ended up watching a movie with Substance. The acting was great, good topic, etc. But damn! I was tricked.

It's been nearly a year since my last Trashroom Treasure post, so it is with great pleasure that I present to you, the DELUXE folding chair! It's metal with a beautiful vinyl seat. And the paint is not that cheap shiny paint, no sir. This here chair has a TEXTURED paint job.

There it was, folded as it was made to do, leaning against the wall of the trashroom. Was it broken? Like a trick chair? Did a cat pee on it? Was the seat cushion ripped? Rusted? Old?


This appears to be one of a 2-chair set that retails for $59.99 (Amazon Link). I wiped it down with a damp paper towel and it's as good as new.

I'd like to ask the previous owner why they were throwing it away. Maybe they upgraded to gold-plated folding chairs, because as far as folding chairs goes, this one here is a fancypants chair.

When I moved here from Texas in 2003, I brought along an old blue metal folding chair. After all, the moving company was moving stuff, there was nothing wrong with the chair, it was easy to move, it folded, could come in handy, etc, etc...

Well now my old blue all-metal folding chair has found a mate! Old chair and deluxe chair have moved in together in our washer/dryer closet.

Laugh all you want at my trashroom scavenging. I'm sitting pretty in this here deluxe folding chair. :P

That's all... until next time!
