In the beginning of April I ordered the first seasons of The Simpsons and Futurama on DVD. I placed the order at an online mail order company in Denmark because their DVDs are affordable and they ship to Norway. What I didn’t think of was the import tax, which added an extra 24% plus the clearance service charge to the price.

What’s all this crap about protecting domestic businesses?

Now I’ve started to collect the UK Region 2 versions of both series, meaning I have to keep on ordering UK Region 2 versions. I might be able to track them down in Norwegian stores, but I’ll probably end up ordering from the same Danish online store. I’m also collecting South Park, so far I’ve got all the seasons that have been released on DVD. But I want more. Cause cartoons are cool. Got any other suggestions, some other animated goodies I should check out? I’ve watched a few episodes of The Family Guy but can’t get the hang of it.

And I need to drag my ass to the movies to see Kill Bill Volume 2.
