Purchase: Robo Vampire on DVD.

In further proof our movie collection is sending us to hell, I just spent $6.50 (including shipping) for a sealed regionless DVD copy of Robo Vampire on eBay.

I am mildly concerned that he intends to acquire the entirety of Martial Arts Theater/Eden entertainment films, but if we pay $3-5 per on eBay, I'll live with it.

On an unrelated note, throwing 1/3 cup (80 ml) of cocoa into no-bake cheesecake mix makes a very satisfying chocolatey cheesy puddle that's not overly sweet. (It set decently but I forgot to grease the pie pan before making the crumb crust, so it didn't come out of the pan neatly.)

Media diet: Graves on Dateline NBC tonight.

Tonight's episode of Dateline NBC (10 PM Eastern), "Justice for Shannon", features the story of Shannon Scheiber's rape-murder, with interviews with her family, the police, and other victims of Troy Graves. I'm taping it for Himself, but anyone who wants to borrow it or make a copy later is welcome to.

(For those of you new to the story, Graves was sentenced to life in prison last year after surrendering to the police. In the time between the Philadelphia and Fort Collins periods of his crimes, he enlisted in the Air Force, where he was my husband's roommate at Medina Annex, Lackland AFB.)
