October 25

Well Paul has been very quiet of late but I always knew that his horror film obsession would kick in again and indeed it has with the purchase of this Region 2(Europe) DVD of Godzilla Vs King Ghidorah (the sequel to Godzilla vs Biollante)

In this film, time-travellers from the future warn that Japan will ultimately be destroyed if the monster Godzilla can't be neutralized. They reveal the circumstances of Godzilla's origin: a dinosaur who survived into the 20th Century (and who inadvertently saved a group of Japanese soldiers from American forces during World War II), only to be mutated by atomic testing on his island home. The future people have an audacious plan: to remove the pre-Godzilla dinosaur from his timestream and prevent his mutation. However, things take an unexpected turn, resulting in the creation of a new horror--the three- headed dragon King Ghidrah.

Paul bid £3.45 for the item at 11.03am on October 24, more than enough to see off the £3.25 bid made by evil_ler a day later. There was a 99p charge for postage and packaging.

These days Paul lives in a huge mansion by the river in Berkshire but many moons ago when he was working the clubs as well as running a mobile shop and being married to a woman who was not Debbie McGee (they are, I believe all friendly) he was living in his home town of Middlesbrough, Cleveland which is, coincidentally, where this item was. It must have been pretty exciting for the seller, godthathurt (funny name!), to sell a DVD to one of his home-cities most famous sons.

I must say that after months of ebay inactivity, it's great to have Paul back in the ebay saddle and I'm sure he will enjoy watching his Godzilla DVD. Not a lot!
