As most of you don't know until now, one of my favorite leisure times irl is going to thrift stores. The fun in thrift shopping is that you'll never usually know what you're going to find or settle with and that you might end up finding something that you either want or need. I've been interested in roaming around these kind of places since 2012 and my most recent visit was just two days ago when I decided to settle for a few shops since I had a lot of money left over from my Christmas shopping. It's also fitting that I start sharing some of the things I've collected from my ventures since it's been months since I've last been to secondhand stores and since I'm no stranger to you all. Anyways, here is what I ended up collecting in my recent trip:
Placed on my bed are 5 CD's from the likes of Death Cab for Cutie, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Ben Folds Five, and Green Day, Megamind on DVD, Watership Down on VHS, and Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, a book.
-My luckiest find that day was for the music. Loved the Led Zeppelin and Green Day albums pictured and I didn't have a copy for each prior, so I got them. As for the Death Cab, Ben Folds, and The Who albums, I haven't listened to them in full yet, but I've been curious about them, which is why I picked them up.
-It should be already telling that The Secret of NIMH is one of my all-time favorite animated films. For a while now, I've been meaning to get my hands on the book that the film was based on and I was happy enough to find it.
-I first saw Megamind three months ago when it was being broadcast on Thanksgiving day, and I was legitimately impressed by it. I didn't have my own copy of the film. On a whim, I decided to pick it up once I found it. I do want to go back to it, anyways, same for Watership Down. I first saw that film after renting it from my school's library last year. I thought it was a great animated film, but I wasn't all too impressed by it and I ended up feeling zoned out by a few of the film's moments. Although, I have a feeling that I will appreciate it more if I watch it more.
That's all I have to say about my recent findings. Expect me to do another one of these sporadically or on a quarterly basis. If I'm lucky and if I have any birthday money to spend, I'll plan my next trip in April of this year.
