    My wife got me 2 pairs jeans and 3 shirts
    My mom got me 2 pairs of jeans and 5 shirts... and a soft pretzel maker.
    My kids got me cologne... which I now have to wear, I normally don't.
    and my sister got me the movie Office Space, which I for some reason never aquired, but always loved!

    I also got some awesome stuff from my secret santa (see he-man.org secret santa thread).
    I also bought my self some silver, and various other random things.

    edit: forgot we also do a White Elephant gift exchange, and I ended up with a "Ho-ho-horrible Ugly Sweater Cookie maker" and the movie the Sixth Sense.
    He weeps, for he has but one small tongue, with which to taste an entire world!

    Lots of original custom t-shirts and stickers available @ http://www.redbubble.com/people/mightyrain
    Many designs based on Masters of the Universe, Classic video games and random movies/cartoons/movies we all know and love.

    Sorry, Ice Cream Phil. Any gift in that price range goes to immediate family or beautiful dames. And since you aren't either (or highly improbable in the latter case), I'm afraid I can't give you MP Soundwave.

    How about a free record?

    Wipe them down real good. If that doesn't work, try another player.

    I did both earlier. Certain episodes from disc 1 from season 1, season 2, and season 3 just don't play. All the other discs play just fine.

    Someone else might have other suggestions, but it seems likely you will end up having to contact the manufacturer and hope they have replacements.

    I've exchanged scratched DVD's/Blu-Rays at both Best Buy and Wal-Mart. I didn't even need a receipt. As long as you exchange it for the same exact item, there shouldn't be a problem.

    Hey Benny, where did you get that awesome Danzig CD? Was it's release exclusive to Hell? I must have missed it!!

    You should be able to return them. Places that I've returned movies to just have you get the exact same item. You might wanna check online and see if any others are having problems. When I bought the complete Stargate SG-1 series, a couple episodes were fine except when one character spoke...no sound period. I returned it & the same. Several others had posted about issues with sound layering. My last resort? Buy season 1, swap discs, return to it to the store & traded the good replacement season to my comic shop. Hope you find someway around it, especially with it having sentimental value.
