CRAZY DISCOUNTS (KICKING RECESSION'S ASS)

Everybody is talking about financial crisis, recession etc etc and they're lamenting that business is going to hell and sales are 80% off and they're going to close down and other crap!

Why crap?
Because those who complain are not doing the slightest thing to make things straight.
Why??
Because: 1) THEY ARE BRAINLESS
2) THEY ARE LIARS.

For months now I've been trying to go on some trips here in Greece for the weekend and I tried to book a room at some remote villages.
Result?
I always try 2 months prior to going and they ALL tell me they're FULL!
And when I find something the prices are 20-30% higher than last year!
And when I go there I CAN see all hotels and pensions are FULL indeed!

Now, I'm trying to travel to some european capital, next month.
Same shit.

The travel agencies here are telling me that prices are indeed MUCH HIGHER than last year and that ALL hotels get full!

Same with houses here.
They're saying they remain unsold but prices are HIGHER than last year!

Same in the supermarkets.
They say they're getting fewer and fewer customers BUT their prices are 20-50% higher than last year!
Besides, I can see that ALL supermarkets are JAMMED with customers!

Same with restaurants, same with electronics stores etc etc...

SO, WHO THE HELL ARE THEY FOOLING????

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, as far as I am concerned...

Yes, my sales have managed to drop even lower than before.

So, what could I do besides lamenting for my bad karma and my miserable fate?

HOW ABOUT SOME SALES?

So, if you check my site www.onarfilms.com now you will see what I mean.

PLUS, unlike some previous time when I didn't mention normal prices, now I'm mentioning the old prices so that you actually see that my discounts reach up to 50%.

Ok, but "HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?"

I'm not really sure for the moment.
Maybe till the bad times are over?

Or till I raise enough cash to release the next dvd KADIN DUSMANI?

For the moment, I MUST help myself by helping people with REALLY CHEAP prices.

Argh! Too bad I bought everything already! That's okay, though; Onar's flicks are worth the extra money, as it goes to a good cause. Hopefully Kadin Dusmani will be out soon, and I can buy that, too! Keep going, Bill! Don't give up!

Oh man, I bought 8 Onar dvds not even a month ago to support the release of Kadin Dusmani and now some of them are half price.
This is not cool Onar, not cool at all.
I've been ripped of worse before though so I'll forgive you this time :)

ONARFILMS said...

Candela,

You're saying you forgive me this time, ok?
BUT you also say I'm not cool and that you were ripped off by ME (at least, not as bad as before!).

So, you're calling me a thief.

If you didn't forgive me what more would you say or do?

Man, I think you're being absurd and UN-FAIR.

Man, WHAT should I have done instead?

NEVER RUN DISCOUNTS PERHAPS?

Instead of feeling ripped off you could feel just un-lucky, which is what you are.

OR ANNOUNCE MONTHS EARLIER: "GUYS! IN 3 MONTHS I'LL RUN DISCOUNTS!"

Then, who would buy anything?
For months they'd hang on for the sales and I wouldn't sell anything at all!

But I'm leaving this to the people's judgement and see who's right and who's wrong.

Meanwhile, since I hate bad feelings, feel free to send me the dvd's back and I'll give you a full refund, PROVIDED YOU WILL NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM ME AGAIN.

Candela said...

Jeez, cool down Onar. You're almost as bad as Naushad from Global DVD with his spaghetti westerns.

Although I (like anyone) naturally would have preferred the new lower price, my post was not meant to be taken that seriously and was more like Jon's post. Obviously the "comical" tone in mine was not clear enough.

It happens all the time with stores lowering prices on stuff I just bought so even if I feel ripped off it doesn't mean the store is a thief.

And with ripped off before I did not mean you (I recently payed someone 100 euro for some movie books and never received anything).

I have all (!) your releases and I'm not sending any back. OK?

ONARFILMS said...

Candela,

Since you are crazy enough to own all Onar releases, I'll forgive you this time, too!

Who's that Naushad???

And to make you feel a bit better, I'll gladly offer you a review dvd of Kadin Dusmani for free.
It's like the other 500 dvd's but review copies have a special numbering of 1-30.
So, they're the RAREST of them all!

When the time comes drop me a line and remind me and you'll get it, ok?

wolfgang said...

hi bill!
what plans for releases do you have after"demir..."?
the golden boy quadrology? something else?
whatever it may be, I hope you are able to bring it to the marketplace, before the copyrights run out...
best wishes,
wolfgang

wolfgang said...

Sh..., I meant "kadir dusmani". what a difficult language ;-)

wolfgang said...

what I personally would be eager to see are some hard turkish (or greek - are there some??? - unfortunately I don ´t know anything about greek b- movies) westerns. not comedy-style. real tough kebap-westerns. what do you think? could there be a market for those kind of films? hey, all other readers, writers here, what is YOUR opinion???
