I made everyone listen to it.
I eventually sold it for fifty dollars on eBay.
Those two songs continued to be my favorite.
They eluded me. Lazy mostly. Cheap as well.
It took close to ten years to finally replace them.
They sound just as good today.
The Get Up Kids - Eudora. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

I saw Juliana Hatfield minus the Three perform outside of the first Lilith Fair. I got to hear the hits. I was satisfied.
Open to making out with her. Even after Evan Dando.
The Juliana Hatfield Three - Become What You Are. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

Scott was the first pervert I knew. I mean that in the best way possible.
Samantha Fox. Howard Stern videos. Playboys. Cinemax.
I'd say don't ever change Scott.
But I'm pretty sure you haven't.
Samantha Fox - Greatest Hits. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

It was the hardest decision I've ever made. He was my best friend.
I miss him every day.
I hate that Bella doesn't know where he is. But she knows he isn't here.
He had a full life. He had his share of adventures.
It doesn't make it any easier to look at his spot on the couch.
I will never forget you Gizmo. You were one of a kind.
My words don't do you justice.
Rain - La Vache Qui Rit. Long in the Tooth. Used.

It was a strange mix of people.
The most eclectic crowd I've seen at a show outside of a festival.
Many, forgotten by time.
A Jamiroquai hat. Richard Marx hair. Tight rolled jeans. Mohawks. Goths. Elvis glasses.
As for the performance, it was excellent. I'd go again in an instant.
The Psychedelic Furs - Book of Days. eBay. Used.

Round two features b-sides and rarities.
It might not help my cause, but my brother should listen to it anyway.
The Psychedelic Furs - B-Sides & Lost Grooves. eBay. Used.

OK. I'll be honest.
I saw Shaun Ryder for the first time last week.
My expectations were low. I didn't care. I wanted to see the Mondays. Any version.
The buy one get one free ticket deal was an added incentive. Although with the service fees I ended up saving all of ten dollars.
I enjoyed the performance. Much more than I thought I would.
Some things old. Some things new. And some things Black Grape.
Black Grape - It's Great When You're Straight...Yeah. eBay. Used.

I purchased the album in a New Zealand record shop. Also while in New Zealand.
Of the thirty-plus compact discs I purchased during my visit, it remains one of my favorites.
Since then I'm pretty sure they signed to Sub Pop. I believe they released a few more albums. I haven't heard any of them.
They also played Philadelphia.
I thought about going. I didn't.
Like so many shows.

It might have been Washington D.C.
Yes, History Club. Day trips. Overnight trips. Co-ed. In high school, what's not to like about that?
I saw Cuckoo at Tower Records. I knew nothing about the band. I noticed the album was produced by Flood. I knew Flood produced Nine Inch Nails.
For the longest time I thought the band's name was Curve Cuckoo. This being their self-titled album.
It took about a year until I cleared that up.
Curve - Come Clean. Amazon.com. Used.

I had heard plenty of things about Bad Kid before actually meeting him.
The hype did not live up to the reality.
It's been a while since I last saw him.
I hope he is doing well.
I must ask about him the next time I see his brother. Usually at a Robes show.
