The stuff I have marked on Discogs is probably the most “simple” in many cases, and down to a matter of “I think it might be cheaper to buy here than on Amazon–third party sellers either way, because it’s not readily available otherwise.” Plain Ol’ Albums on CD Slim Dunlap – Times Like This (Medium Cool […]Read More What’s on My Shopping Radar (Part 3: Discogs!)
Or: Music Part A – 80s (lots of it), “General” Indie, Japanese completism, and a pinch of metal Now we hit on my actual, notoriously intense, wishlist on Amazon. Because it is largely about “filling the gaps”, it’s pretty easy to condense some of the time, as will become obvious. It does, however, address those things that one […]Read More What’s On My Shopping Radar, Part 2 (Not Actually on Current Radar)
Well, this is awkward. You’d think I’d slip up due to a dearth of content. Instead, three albums came out alongside my normal reading, and it comes with commentary on gaming, too, because why wouldn’t it? First, the music: Released [last] week were Hate Eternal’s Infernus, Ghost’s Meliora, and The Sword’s High Country. Either you’re into modern metal […]Read More My Week [or so] in Music
Hello! I’ve been pretty significantly away, having moved across the country to take up a new job and finding a bit of a social life alongside it. Normal concerns–cataloguing my collections and experiencing them in their given manner (reading, listening, watching, playing)–are also difficult to get around, but a revived digression from social media and […]Read More My Week in Media
Is it frivolous to comment on things when I should theoretically be commenting tomorrow, in the passionate throes of New Books Are Out Wednesday¹? Well, of course, the answer is: who cares? So, onward and upward! Most important news is, I’m afraid, music-related, and not comic book related: after comments, photos, and statements insisting that […]Read More I Don’t Need Pride of Place, But in Your Good Books I Think I Might Rate a Page
My listening has been really passive and boring–oddly, close to the listening I did years ago, which I’ve been wanting to get back to. A shuffle of 5 or so albums in the car (a burnt copy of No Coast which includes my digital copies of the Forgetters 2×7″ and J. Robbins’s Abandoned Mansions acoustic EP, The Wombats […]Read More Oh No, Can It Be? We’re Heading for a Heatwave
Yesterday I got in my copy of Braid’s No Coast on vinyl, which means I release myself to listen to my digital copy, too (why I have this “rule”, I don’t know–I guess so the vinyl has freshness, like sticking to getting something the day it’s officially released. Some ritual is nice!). It’s really good, living […]Read More New Titles and Some Other Stuff!
