Yesterday was a palindrome. Did you know that? 121121. Our day was weird because I had to spend half of it in the studio working on video set up and Zoom and all kinds of craziness that just wasn’t working the way I wanted/needed. My cousin, Gary or Kousin Gary on the Asylum – Tales from the Devereaux Diaries Podcast came up from Durham to help me out. He’s a vid production specialist, so he helped me work some things out. The BCPF and I took him to West End Cafe for a late lunch/early dinner and beers for his trouble and then took him to Underdog Records before he had to head back east. I didn’t get anything while there, but The BCPF did. Here’s her haul:
Nirvana – Nirvana — Compilation, Limited Edition, Reissue, Smoke-colored vinyl. Includes glossy double-sided insert with an essay by David Fricke, pictures, and song credits. Anti-static inner sleeve. Listed as used but still sealed, Walmart Edition.
Weezer – Weezer — “The Black Album”. Limited Edition, Black Smoke. Black Smoke Vinyl edition limited to 2000 pressings, purchased on the Weezer Web Store. Sixth self-titled album (Black); hype sticker and promotional materials refer to it as “The Black Album.” Includes a custom inner sleeve. Pre-orders were delivered with a black spork; metal sporks were included with test pressings. NM
Gary loved Underdog Records and well, we do, too! He bought Megadeth’s Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying and a used, signed copy of Electric Circus from WASP. You should check out Underdog Records’ website and social media to see what Jonathan has gotten in and is offering for purchase. Use Discogs to track your collection.
Until next time, keep spinnin’…
“He’s the one who likes all our pretty songs. And he likes to sing along and he likes to shoot his gun. But he don’t know what it means, don’t know what it means, when I say, he’s the one who likes all our pretty songs. And he likes to sing along and he likes to shoot his gun. But he don’t know what it means, don’t know what it means, and I say, “Yeah”. – “In Bloom” (Cobain)
