Good fic and cheap DVDs

Funny how there was recent discussion about low quality of fic on 2mins4slashing and then bkm5191 mentions wanting friendship fic, and lo, good friendship fic appears in the community. It is Blackhawks gen, so please don't be scared by the mention of Harvey the Hound in the header and start worrying about furries or things like that.

There was a sale on DVD sets and SGA S1 and S2 were only $17 each with free shipping and and and... I caved! Especially having heard from almightychrissy that there are good extras. Buffy, Angel, SG1 and X-Files are also around the same price range for each season if anyone's interested.

Still angsting over Rock Band. I actually enjoy this kind of angst. It's like the angst I go through whenever I upgrade my computer. I only have a PS2 and that version doesn't have online play (don't care) or the band world tour mode (which I do care a bit about). But apparently the controllers can be used with the PS3 so if I get one in the future, then I could just pick up the Rock Band game for like $60.

For that matter I could just pick up the game for PS2 and I would have 2 guitars and the mic, so the only thing I couldn't do is play drums. BUT the drums are the biggest draw for me in Rock Band. They're really challenging and kick my ass but that's what makes it fun. We've also gotten to the point where we have to play songs at hard difficulty in order to gain more fans and while I can sight read most of the songs on hard difficulty on guitar well enough to pass, neither Chip nor I can get through the majority of drums on hard. So drums is what I would want to practice on my own.

If my roomie was keen on playing and would play like... once or twice a week with me then it's a no-brainer and I would just pick up the full Rock Band bundle. But she doesn't seem that interested, so the game would be pretty much just for solo practice (at $160). *angsts* (I have a $50 Amazon gift certificate, which means it could cost me $110 to buy it, but that $50 could be applied to something else, so I can't treat it as a discount. This is why I don't go into credit card debt.)
