Sometimes things just seem to come together. My father-in-law sent me a check for $75 to get myself something for my birthday ... all too often these sorts of things get pissed away on a cab ride here, a sandwich there, etc. ... well, I remarkably (I almost never open and read their notices since going on non-shipment) discovered that one of the record clubs was having a "get anything for $4.99" sale which ended next week. So, I logged on to their web site and found that I could get an additional 10% off for it being my first on-line order, so even though they charge insane shipping, my total per CD was only like $7.50 with tax and all. Now, mind you, this was a record club, so there was a notable lack of "edgy" stuff, but I think I did OK, some old, some new, some stuff that I'd been meaning to get, etc. ... here's the list:
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Take Them On, On Your Own Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club PJ Harvey - Uh Huh Her The Vines - Winning Days Type O Negative - The Origin Of The Feces Type O Negative - Slow, Deep And Hard The Donnas - Spend The Night Curve - Gift The Smithereens - Blown To Smithereens: Best Of The Smithereens Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra - The Santa Fe Sessions
Not a bad haul ... I'd been meaning to pick up those early Type O Negative albums for ages, but I just couldn't bring myself to pay retail ... a pretty wide variety in there too ... I'm looking forward to getting them!
