Last 5: Albums I Bought

September 23, 2006 at 6:48 am 2 comments

Hi! So, I worked at the record store today to help out with the shortage of people who now work there, and I picked up some albums! I also picked up a little something extra… a $.17/hour raise!!!!! You may now refer to my money drunk post and DOUBLE the wonderful things I was going to buy. That means a diamond and PLATINUM encrusted iPod nano. Here are the last five albums I bought:

1. Blackalicious – the Craft
Paid: 1 dolla bill!

I’m listening to this right now.. and I really like it. But I’m only on track 3, so the complete verdict isn’t in.

2. Elliot Smith – From a Basement on a Hill
Paid: 1 Georgey O’ Greenback

I had to pick up the swan song, but I’ve sort of been over Elliot Smith for a few years. But it will always be there for me to listen to, when I need it.

3. New Order – Substance
Paid: Pennies!

I had to pick up the BMG double disc set that came in the double CD case, instead of two single cases. Classic New Order, and the re-recording of Temptation… oh hot damn. Reminds me of Senior Prom, waking up in Jaxon’s living room watching Trainspotting.

4. Captain Beefheart – Mirror Man Sessions
Paid: A couple coppers

Haven’t listened yet, I’m still digesting “Hot Head – Introducing Captain Beefheart.” Reminds me a lot of Devandra Banhart and Tom Waits, which is funny since those are two artists influenced by Captain Beefheart, not the other way around! BOING!

5. Daniel Johnston – Hi, How Are You?
Paid: 7 bucks

So I bought this cassette off Daniel Johnston’s old manager, who still has his back catalog and dubs it onto tapes. He has a lot of stuff, and is still in contact with Daniel Johnston. I emailed back and forth with him today, and he was a really nice guy. I should get my tape pretty soon. You can get them too, if you Google for “stress records.”

Meegle Reagle, baggle tim tamble!
