I gave up looking for CDs in big stores. First of all, the only thing that comes close to HMV is the Saturn store.

I always wonder why they even bother with charging CDs for high prices. They should know people will mostly get it from Amazon instead for cheaper. At least they are doing a lot with offers so it's better than nothing.

Chicks for free? Everyone always says getting a girlfriend is free but why is it so hard for me to get one? :P

Yes, we've been over this before. I think the best thing that you can do is volunteer work, in the interim.

I'd rather rely on these agencies to give me a job at random, even if it's temporary. I've done enough voluntary work in the past. I expect to be paid for what I do and I'll no longer do anything for others for free.

It's a good album. I really should get a copy at some stage.

It's not exactly what I could listen to every day, but it sure does have it's great moments.

It's hard to be cheaper than Amazon (at least sometimes), but most of the time CDs in stores are so damn overpriced that you really wonder who buys that shit. Sorry, but 20 Euros for just one album is too much.

So Haggard, the other day you were listening to Dire Straits. That's another band I've been considering getting into.

Listening to:

Inspell - Arcadian Tales: The Egregore

I could understand if it's vinyl but this is CD we're talking about; something that's so damn easy to copy. I really should ask for Amazon vouchers over HMV gift cards for future birthday/Christmas present ideas.

I didn't say that - I've just not been reading your autobiography, on account that it's not been written yet. The Dresden Files, by Jim Butcher is keeping me occupied at the moment :P

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the problem with the country today. If I said that, I'd not have a cricket team to play for, because no-one would get 11 players out for the team every Sunday. If my dad and the other three blokes who make the pitch up for us said that, we wouldn't have a pitch to play on. If our youth coaches said that, we wouldn't have a promising group of kids coming through to play for us, giving our club a future. We're having fun, yet we're giving something back

I know what you mean - it's the same with me and Pink Floyd. I can't stomach it all the time, but I'm getting into some of their lesser known stuff, along with the classics.

Well, I only have the "Brothers in Arms" album and a few songs here and there from other albums (like "Sultans of Swing"). But I'm not really interested in getting more from them in the near future. Even though you have to give credit to Mark Knopfler for his guitar playing.

Sadly I don't have a way to play back vinyl, so that's why I have to buy CDs. ^^
But yeah, it's not like it takes forever to produce a CD and it's not like it would cost very much to produce a CD. So why are they so damn expensive? Especially when you think about what you actually get: A CD with the music on it, and IF you are lucky the lyrics in the booklet. Speaking of the booklet: Sometimes it's just a simple booklet with the cover on it and maybe the lyrics. But nothing else. At least in the metal genre, most bands have some nicely styled booklets...

So what about dragonesses? ;)
I don't know any.
And my furry friend only knows a handful of them. This can't be good.

I guess it's easier to be a straight male human being in this world.

I suppose it would be best if I put that into context.

Yep, CDs for me. I have the turntable in the conservatory but it's very rarely it would actually be used. I only got Unholy Cadaver on vinyl because the release was CD+2LP exclusive. It was that or buy the album from Amazon MP3.

Yeah, I have come across some iffy booklets in the past. That wouldn't determine whether it was worth buying the CD or not but I'd sure as hell be disappointed if I had to pay £15 on one album and they didn't have the courtesy to make a nice booklet to go along with it.

BTW, how did we have a debate about music videos without even mentioning Immortal?

So, I finally got around to compile a list of all the CDs I own. Or rather: Me and my wife own. Here's the list.

Note, that not all of those are Metal-CDs. Most CDs with german names are Hip Hop-CDs (yes, I like to listen to some HipHop from time to time, but only german HipHop ;) )

Yes. Compilation Albums are a good way to check out a band, even though I would never buy one myself.
My mother has the "Brothers in Arms" album, and I ripped the CD when I went through her CD collection some years ago.

I could understand if it's vinyl but this is CD we're talking about; something that's so damn easy to copy. I really should ask for Amazon vouchers over HMV gift cards for future birthday/Christmas present ideas.

Amazon MP3s are a good way to get some albums very cheap. But I don't do that too often, as I always feel there's something missing...

Yeah, I have come across some iffy booklets in the past. That wouldn't determine whether it was worth buying the CD or not but I'd sure as hell be disappointed if I had to pay £15 on one album and they didn't have the courtesy to make a nice booklet to go along with it.

Exactly. I've seen some booklets that only had the cover and some picture on the back. The "inside" of the booklet was just blank. WTF?

BTW, how did we have a debate about music videos without even mentioning Immortal?

I don't know?

What's up? Did I break the program, by reaching 30k? :(

I didn't say that - I've just not been reading your autobiography, on account that it's not been written yet. The Dresden Files, by Jim Butcher is keeping me occupied at the moment :P
You have my autobiography?

Didn't know there was one. If it's been written, I'll give it a nose.

I'd rather rely on these agencies to give me a job at random, even if it's temporary. I've done enough voluntary work in the past. I expect to be paid for what I do and I'll no longer do anything for others for free.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the problem with the country today. If I said that, I'd not have a cricket team to play for, because no-one would get 11 players out for the team every Sunday. If my dad and the other three blokes who make the pitch up for us said that, we wouldn't have a pitch to play on. If our youth coaches said that, we wouldn't have a promising group of kids coming through to play for us, giving our club a future. We're having fun, yet we're giving something back
At least you're getting something from it. For those shitty volunteer placements I had, it gave me absolutely nothing and doing 100 hours of it means fuck all to employers.

Yeah, currently I'm getting a reputation of being the worst captain we've ever had, a winless record and a massively bruised foot.

To top it all off, tomorrow, I have to go to my brother's wedding. I wasn't looking forward to tomorrow, as I don't like my brother, let alone the fat slag that he is marrying. But hey, who am I to stand in the way. Just limp through it, try not to scowl during the photos and hope that the escape committee comes up with the goods, so that I can escape at a reasonable hour.

Speaking of Pink Floyd: I actually don't have any album from them yet (just the stuff I downloaded years ago, including Wish You Were Here and Another Brick In The Wall).
If I were to recommend a album that isn't one of their "mainstream" albums, I'd say try "The Division Bell"
I try to keep that in mind. Amazon only offers this for 20 Euros right now. Too expensive. :/

£6.10 on play. Might be a little more, to you on the continent, but hey, give it a look.

For those of you that care about my cricketing exploits (gamejunkie, mostly), I stopped a cricket ball with my left instep, while fielding a drive to mid-off. Suffice to say, this hurt. Hobbled by this, I was fielding at square leg / mid off for the rest of the afternoon, with little incident. I did catch a massive top-edge, that descended right down my throat and then took the ball for a four over spell, returning figures of 4-1-12-1, so not all that bad, considering that the opposition amassed 217 in just under 40 overs.

We were bowled out for 156, so a much better batting performance, with me (and my runner) high and dry on 0* Still haven't got an average with the bat... Could have done with some runs yesterday, I felt in good touch...

Ah well, the steam deals are pretty much over, I got to say, the repeat in deals is troublesome but I did end up getting 18 games. I can't play any of them but still...

Listening to:

Orphaned Land - The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR. I think I know what I'll be listening to A LOT over the next few weeks.

There's something it definitely needs and that's a spellchecker. :P

Note, that not all of those are Metal-CDs. Most CDs with german names are Hip Hop-CDs (yes, I like to listen to some HipHop from time to time, but only german HipHop ;) )

Ehh, I've not got anything too unusual for my tastes. The most out of place CD in my collection is Kraftwerk but even they have a good reason to be there. Although, all I have from them is The Man-Machine.

Yes. Compilation Albums are a good way to check out a band, even though I would never buy one myself.

It wasn't me who bought them, unless it was for a present at one point. Either way, I can always check it out and decide for myself. There are the odd good compilations that aren't released by Queen. :P I'm looking at Gamma Ray's Blast from the Past here.

Yep, CDs for me. I have the turntable in the conservatory but it's very rarely it would actually be used. I only got Unholy Cadaver on vinyl because the release was CD+2LP exclusive. It was that or buy the album from Amazon MP3.
Amazon MP3s are a good way to get some albums very cheap. But I don't do that too often, as I always feel there's something missing...

Hence why I never use Amazon MP3 for albums. Maybe the odd song but that's about it!

Yeah, I have come across some iffy booklets in the past. That wouldn't determine whether it was worth buying the CD or not but I'd sure as hell be disappointed if I had to pay Ã'£15 on one album and they didn't have the courtesy to make a nice booklet to go along with it.
Exactly. I've seen some booklets that only had the cover and some picture on the back. The "inside" of the booklet was just blank. WTF?

Shame I can't really mark down an album just for having a poor CD booklet. :P

BTW, how did we have a debate about music videos without even mentioning Immortal?
I don't know?

We are really not ourselves lately.

And this is why dragons are generally angry. :P
>:(

See, they have reasons to be angry unlike you. :P

It is alright to blame you in this case?

Can't say it'll be too exciting in compared to others. You already know me anyway.

Dear god man, what have you done?!

So you're going to attend it in the end.

I didn't buy a damn thing from the sales and I'm proud of that.

LOL! You're a cheeky bugger Coop. You got a hearty laugh out of me, for real. Because honestly I read the

Coop struggles to get his shoe on (cricket injury), before congratulating

comment and thought, Ooh! I must ask how he injured himself, (probably from cricket) then I read on and had a good laugh. Not at the fact that you got injured, just that you pre-empted my interest/response. How astute of you. Nice bowling figures for a short spell too. Good job.

Isn't that 2 weeks in a row that your team has copped an absolute flogging? Sounds like your team needs to hit the nets for some much needed batting practice. Hang in there, bad luck always eventually changes to good luck sooner or later.

Off topic. 4 days left until the Olympics Games start. I can't wait. I still think England and Australia are going to have their best results ever. To Bahamut, I know your totally uninterested in the Olympics, so I will keep my enthusiasm and Olympic posts to the bare minimum.

It's incredible this thread has been active for a decade now.


I'm your average Afro-American fetus. For example: I enjoy basketball, I'm rather good when I play too, but I'm much too busy scratching my horrific cracked skin these days.
