Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 17th, 2012 | Auctions, EarthBound

Each week for the past few weeks I’ve been selling some cool and unusual stuff from my EarthBound/MOTHER collection. This week is a DVD of the movie that helped inspire Giygas!

I bought this DVD – The Military Policeman and the Dismembered Beauty – many years ago to finally find out what Shigesato Itoi was talking about in this crazy interview. I tracked it down and imported it and wrote up this looooong article and later made this video from it:

Anyway, now that I don’t need it anymore, I figured another EarthBound fan might get a kick out of having it in their collection. So if you’re interested, check out all the details here!

For reference, here’s what it looks like playing on my TV:

When you watch it, keep in mind that it’s from Japan in the 1950s – it’s actually pretty disturbing when you view it that way. Nowadays we have things like the Saw series, maybe this was sort of the equivalent for the time, as this movie spawned a grisly series of its own – not to mention the Universal Cosmic Destroyer 😛

So if any of that sounds interesting to you, check it out here!

Vizio’s TVs are okay otherwise, but how can you stand having that huge Vizio logo glowing below the screen all the time?

It’s kinda like when you watch a full-screen movie instead of a wide-screen movie, where there’s black bars on both sides – after a while your brain filters it out so you don’t even notice it unless you try.

When I first got it I considered putting tape over it but I was too lazy 😛
