Scene 9, 4:48: In a CD-alley in a crowded shop, several metalheads move by, boy looks through CDs [this is a Voivod review, so one can safely assume he goes through “V”], He leaves the scene at 3:30 with two CDs.

Scene 10, 5:08: Boy sits on desk in front of pc, assumingly listening to the CD via his headphones (with a microphone). 4:13: Stands up, leaves the room, while headphones blur on.
