In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.
Nightmare On Elm Street collection ($17.49 on DVD)
With Halloween just one day away, there’s no time like the present to pick up the 8-disc Nightmare On Elm Street collection. At just under $17, it’s a spooktacular steal, especially considering it features both movies and copious amounts of commentary. There’s even a music video, if you’re into that sort of thing.
And once Halloween is done, we’ll be on to Thanksgiving, and then on to Christmas. Don’t get taken for a (sleigh) ride this holiday season; purchase your faux trees, ornaments, and goofy accessories now, while they’re on sale. This T. rex should give any tree, real or fake, the air of deadliness it really deserves.
Set of 18 dress-up capes ($42.80)
Sometimes you just want to order 18 different dress-up capes for a kid’s birthday party. These come in a bunch of different colors and have Velcro neck closures, meaning your 3- to 9-year-old will be able to get in and out of them without your help. The only drawback is that you have to hand wash them, but still, they’re a pretty good deal. The same manufacturer also offers a number of other cape packages, including sets that come with adult capes, lest the kids have all the fun.
Cocktail muddler ($4.79)
Look, sometimes you’ve just got to muddle some mint. This affordable cocktail muddler will keep you from just using the end of your rolling pin or whatever else you might have lying around.
While your guests are sipping on their cocktails, you’ll be whipping up some more goodies in the kitchen with an iPad or cookbook propped up on this handy stand. Never lose your page again or crane your neck while you’re chopping. It’s also got a lifetime warranty, should you think it’s some piece of junk that’ll just break.
Carbon-fiber record brush ($3.83)
Stylus cleaning kit ($6.14)
Record-cleaning system with fluid ($4.67)
Some vinyl-loving A.V. Club reader picked these items up this week, reminding us that it’s always good to clean your records and keep your turntable in slick working order. Don’t let cruddy Salvation Army vinyl ruin your needle.
This little Michelangelo would be perfect for both display and play, as it’s made from sturdy vinyl. The rude dude with a pizza attitude comes with nunchucks and his signature orange mask.
