I have bought a few more CDs over the last few weeks, plus a download.
A couple of weeks ago Hana requested to go to Mandai because she wanted to try her luck on the UFO catchers, and yet again she got something, a necklace to be exact.
I bought the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, Louis Armstrong plays W.C. Handy, and Home Acres by a band called Aloha…never heard of them but thought I would give them a go, and the CD cover was fancy looking. I am listening to it for the first time as I type and it’s OK but nothing special.
On Amazon I bought 100 Masterpieces by Frank Sinatra, mostly because it was cheap at 600 yen, but also because Franky was a classic.
And today, over two months since I placed the order, a package arrived from Second Spin with lots of goodness:
Superchunk – Cup of Sand (two discs)
PJ Harvey – Uh Huh Her
Placebo – Meds
Placebo – Sleeping With Ghosts
Moby – Everything Is Wrong
Daniel Johnston – Is And Always Was (listened to this today, not bad)
Alkaline Trio – Good Mourning
Chuffed with that order.
Yesterday, the first day of the spring holiday for James and Hana, we went to McD’s which is near Book Off, so I went there and bought Aphex Twin’s Richard D. James Album.
And finally, today the Placebo I’m Nothing Without You arrived in the mail, used.
*Update: I bought the PJ Harvey album Dry purchased yesterday while we were all browsing in a Book Off. Looking forward to listening to it, it will bring back memories.
Plenty of good stuff to listen to.
Album count 2015: 23
