Buying things I already own. Curse you "deluxe" editions.

Stereophonics - Performance and Cocktails (Deluxe Edition). Used.

Strange Bedfellows

I always felt like this was a strange release for early era Victory. That being said, solid record, solid band.

I know a lot of people don't like Worlds Collide, or at the very best, are indifferent towards them. But it would be a shame if they became a hardcore afterthought (although they probably already are).

Worlds Collide. Crooked Beat. Used.

Spice Girls covering my favorite Christmas song, Christmas Wrapping. What's not to love?

Spice Girls - Goodbye. Used.

The teenage leftist in me thought this was the greatest record ever. Don't get me wrong, it's still great. Even if my ideals have mellowed into Democratic moderation.

Struggle. Mike. Used.

For A Moment

I had considered buying all of the Britney Spears singles. But then I realized what a (most likely) waste of money that would be. But I do need all of the full lengths.

I'm going to hold this single artwork up when she is on camera during my X-Factor viewings. Memories of better days.

Britney Spears - Oops!...I Did It Again. Used.


I had some trouble finding this disc in my collection. It hadn't been filed yet. I'm either real behind, or real ahead. I'm leaning towards behind.

Stereophonics - Pick A Part That's New (Single 2). Used.


Everyone always makes jokes about Mama Cass and the ham sandwich.

Then I saw her sister on Behind the Music talking about how hurtful those jokes were.

It bummed me out.

The Mamas & The Papas - California Dreaming. Used.

Park Three of Three

And on the subject of singles. Especially an artist like Bjork. I have to look out for domestic. UK. Australia. Japan. Any number of other European releases.

It can be daunting.

Bjork - Joga/Bachelorette. AKA Music. Used.

Part Two of Three

And a second Bjork. I would like to own every single. This late in her career, that is a pretty big undertaking.

Bjork - Joga. AKA Music. Used.

Part One of Three

Three Bjork purchases in a row on my list.

No idea.

Bjork - Hyperballad.

Chokehold. Knockdown. Converge. Bound.

I guess Converge is the last man standing.

Soundtrack To the Revolution. Mike. Used.

Metal Up Your Ass

Probably the most metal of the Syracuse vegan straight edge hardcore (metal) bands.

Soulstice - Dark Hour. Mike. Used.

Reunion Releases

I hear great things about the new Strife record.

You should listen to this in the meantime.

Strife - My Fire Burns On. New Age Records. New.

Sum Of Its Parts

I like Some Girls.

But not nearly as much as I like its parts.

Struggle. Swing Kids. Unbroken. American Nightmare. Etc.

Some Girls - The Blues. Mike. Used.


I forgot I owned anything by Beach House until I went to post this.

I need to pick up the official releases. And by "official" I mean physical releases.

Beach House - iTunes Session. iTunes.

Another Day Tripper

Is "Kingface" one word or two? I've seen it both ways. Even on the same record.

The band doesn't even seem to know.

Kingface - Mother'fucker Read My Back. Cooked Beat. Used.

A Little Late

I waited way too long to buy this.

I was holding out for an incredibly cheap copy. It never happened. So I purchased a moderately cheap copy.

Purity Ring - Shrines. New.

Day Tripper

Last spring on a day trip to DC I had two goals. Get Ben's. And peruse record stores for DC-centric music.

I don't know why I thought I'd have better luck finding Teen Beat, Dischord and Simple Machines records and associated bands closer to their home. But it turns out I was right.

Scream - Mardi Gras. Used.

And Newer Still

Their name is still a bit of a turnoff. But this album is great.

Egyptian Hip Hop - Good Don't Sleep. iTunes.

Still the Guiltiest of Pleasures


Jimmy Buffett - Feeding Frenzy. Used.

It's pretty amazing how long of a career Sloan has put together.

A consistently solid career at that.

Sloan - Pretty Together. Used.
