I've been getting worse at updating the blog here. It doesn't help when I go days without even turning on my laptop. So here is a filler post of some stuff I bought on a trip to Phoenix/Melodyia this week.
I bought the new Beck album "Colors" on vinyl! I got the CD for Christmas and it's actually really good. It is a straight up pop album, nothing alt rock or folksy or countryish from Beck this time. The vinyl sounds pretty good, but that's more because I'm listening to through an actual audio system and not the crappy stereo in my car.
I got some used CDs as well starting with an Eagles of Death Metal album. I've of course heard of them, but never actually listened to them at all. I'm pretty sure Cam recommended them to me at some point, but I'm surprised it's taken me this long to find a used copy of one of their albums. For some reason I tend to get them confused with Queens of the Stone Age.
I also got a Smashing Pumpkins Peel Sessions single released in 1992. The three songs on the disc were released later on two different releases, neither of which I have so it all worked out in the end.
The Dead Milkmen album is more Cam again as he was just telling me in an e-mail that he was listening to them recently. I saw the album and just picked it up. It has "Fillet of Sole" on it, so I'm stoked.
The last one was a blind pick, so hopefully it's good. If it's not, it isn't a big deal as it was used and not super expensive or anything.
I went down the stairs to the bargain basement where they have less CDs now, but a ton of DVDs and toys. It's too hard to even look at stuff when it's just randomly stacked and piled every where. Also, it's dark and a little creepy. I did pick up two things though. I got R.I.P.D. only because it was the 3D version, and I picked up cheap 3D blu-rays any chance I get.
I also got the One Missed Call Trilogy which is a Japanese horror series. I've never actually seen any of the films, but I've heard decent things about the first two films, the third film not so much. It sounds like it's a copy of the Ring but using a cell phone. I'll add it to my movie que. There are actually six discs inside the standard size case, one disc per movie plus one extras discs per movie. Ignore the $36.00 price tag on the front because it only cost $1.00! R.I.P.D. was also $1.00, so it was worth going down the fun house stairs to the dark basement.
That's it for now!
