8mm - Between the Devil and Two Black Hearts (still on order; no clue when it'll get here)
The Birthday Massacre - Superstition
Seagate 1TB 6GB/s SATA 7200rpm HDD

The new hard drive is because my Windows installation underwent a clusterfuck meltdown a few days ago* and I had no readily-usable space to back up all my data. And since I recently installed a SATA host card** in this thing (mostly to move Ubuntu off to an external and free up space on the Windows drive), I took the opportunity to get a much larger HDD - the old one was a 160GB, and I only had ~28GiBs left on it...when it had to share with Ubuntu, it was less than 5GiBs. Now, I actually had the ability to create separate partitions for Windows, so the system is its own 128GiB partition and all the rest of my stuff is on a 360GiB partition.

*NTLDR got corrupted. First time I've ever seen that happen, in nearly 20 years of using Windows. And the problem was even worse because the installation was from the OEM restore discs, which provided XP Home. But the only install disc I have is XP Pro (and trying to restore the particular files off that disc didn't fix it, and then it stopped letting me even boot into the Recovery Console on the disc to try to run a CHKDSK on the drive). So I was pretty much screwed. And the even more bizarre thing is that before it did that, I hadn't really done anything to it - the only thing I noticed was a graphical hiccup when I went to shut down, and then the next day it refused to boot into Windows at all.

**which is only limited to 150MB/s, although it wouldn't matter much because it's bottlenecked by the legacy PCI interface. I'm not seeing any performance hit compared to the old IDE/PATA drive (any boost may actually be invisible, since the cache on the new drive is like 8x larger), so that's not really a problem either.

As for the last thing I bought for myself, here's a little hardcover I picked up:

Other than the few tales that were adapted later (like The Princess On The Pea and The Little Mermaid), I never did get to read all of his original fairy tales, and at a nice price. It'll look good sitting next to the complete original Brothers Grimm. :)

After debating on it for a year and a half since I moved into this place I finally broke down and picked up a new TV that's a more proper size for my living room. The $200 price drop didn't hurt either :D
