Bonus disc

So last week I mentioned I went to the thrift stores and Phoenix comics and got a bunch of stuff I never mentioned what CDs I got from the thrift store.  I meant to, but then I forgot which is fine because then I can drag it out into an entire post.

I got those four CDs for $1.00 as part of the bizarre pricing structure at WINs.   I can't believe I didn't already own that Smashing Pumpkins CD or maybe I do and just forgot about it.  I'm pretty sure I don't though...probably.  Also you can never have too many Selena Gomez CDs.  The Ice Cube album is currently playing in my car and is pretty good.  It's more of an EP though with only seven tracks.  Turns out there was also an unadvertised bonus inside the case.

The Ice Cube case also had this "Dance/Rap May/02" disc stacked on top of it.  At thrift stores you always gotta check the cases to make sure it has the proper disc inside it and sometimes you'll get lucky and get an extra disc.  At the same thrift store a while back I bought the DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince CD that also came with an extra disc inside it.

I popped the CD in my computer to see what was on it and while it holds 14 tracks, they don't come up with any artist or song names.  Most of the songs are from that 2002 era rap/hip hop stuff, but then out of nowhere is older stuff like Young MC, Tone Loc and then the one song that is completely out of place is Lust for Life.  I guess someone saw Trainspotting.

Forget going and buying brand new CDs when I can go buy four CDs for a $1.00 at the thrift store.  It's way cheaper and nice to catch up on albums I missed out on.
