Brogue-ing at Brits!

J: Welcome to a special in-between edition of Blog with a Brogue! What I mean there is that this isn't strictly a post about movies. We are, in effect, in between movies.

M: [laughs] [chews rice krispy treat loudly] [laughs some more]

J: Today we bring you an in-depth journey into the movie rental process at Brit's downtown.

M: Oh god not a journey! [chokes on rice krispy treats] 

J: I'm afraid it's true! Meredith, why don't you tell our esteemed followers exactly what we were after this afternoon. After.

M: Can I just say "after" again? 

J: Sure.

M: Let's start with that. After. [laughs] So, we recently discovered (or remembered) that there is, in fact, a lovely little rental section hiding in the back of our favorite British imports store, Brits!

J: Seriously, guys, they've got tons of movies. Especially if you still have a VHS player (also known, as it were, as a V-C-R).

M: It is a VHS goldmine for all things British.

J: [shouts] BBC!

M: In hopes of giving our fine followers...

J: Good alliteration!

M: Thanks! Where was I... [loses train of thought completely]

J: We just wanted to let people know that Brits is awesome and we love them and...

M: This is terrible. Don't let the Brits people see this.

J: They'll love it! In any case, the rental process is super easy - and cheap - and I encourage you to check out their selection of Dr. Who memorabilia. Also their jams and such. 'Cause it's Brits. But really, they're super nice and DVD rentals are $1.50 for two nights (with just 75 cents a night in late fees).

M: Of course, we would never be late in turning in our videos.

J: Never, ever. [shakes head for emphasis] [takes a quick drink]

M: We found a number of DVDs that we hope to feature here at BWAB in the near future, one of which we rented after filling out our membership forms.

J: Super easy, guys.

M: "Who are the Britons?" "We are all Britons and I am your king!" 

J: Not today, Meredith. Soon, though. Soon.

M: Is this just me quoting Monty Python to myself? It's too hot for blogging.

J: And we'll leave you with that! Stay tuned for our review of our very first Brits rental, The History Boys, based on the Tony award-winning play. Do you want to say thank-you to Brits?

M: Um... I mean I could. [laughs] I just have to think really hard about things sometimes.

J: Thank you, Brits, for your lovely service and your amazing selection of British films. We look forward to your recommendations.

M: I sound like your mentally deranged friend. For half of this I just eat rice krispy treats. And then the second half I can't think of anything, I can't thank people... this is the worst possible introduction for Brits.

J: Not true! You made some excellent points about being timely video renters.

M: I'm just going to tell people I was severely dehydrated [takes a drink of my beer] I just drank your beer! I'm just... it's very good, though...

J: It's not bad, right? I've had better, but...

M: ...but not much. Sorry Brits, we love you. The next one will be better. We promise.

J: We make a lot of promises around here...


Sad David Tennant is sad. (Evil Gromit is evil.)
Their selection is impressive! Not at all bewildering.
I can't believe you didn't know that that was Stephen Fry. I'm so ashamed. (Meredith says, in her defense, that the picture was very small.) I'll allow it.
Clearly marked.
