Why I no longer post.

Okay, so the point of this blog was to stop me from buying stuff. But it backfired. Instead of saving money I started spending more money to post stuff on here! Crazy right?
So insted of blogging about stuff I've been writing music.
If you're interested check it out on the following sites:

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me with this project.
I'm kinda glad it's over!

ipod nano

Pink ipod nano bought at the Apple store in the Maine Mall

$56.45 ($149 plus tax minus Birthday money)

This is the first ipod I've ever owned. I'm a bit behind when it comes to technology.

In the background is the transistor radio that I use to tune in Heritage radio out of Yarmouth, ME.
Does anyone even remember transistor radios anymore?

More Chaplin

Charlie Chaplin's The Circus bought at Bull Moose Music

$15.?? (I can't remember)

I've never actually seen this movie. I'm building up a great silent movie collection.

Dennis2 has been admonishing me for buying so much stuff!

Hi, Dennis.

A Woman A Man Walked By

PJ Harvey & John Parish 'A Woman A Man Walked By' album and single bought online Townsend Records

$29.13 (both items including shipping)

I got these from England. I'm in love with Polly Harvey.

It's a pretty amazing album, the more I listen to it the more I love it.
Standout tracks are Black Hearted Love, Sixteen Fifteen Fourteen, and A Woman A Man Walked By/The Crow... "Sucking on a little pea"

The single hasn't arrived yet as it's not released until April 13th but I'll post it when it's here.

Update 4/14/09: The single is here! I love getting mail that says 'Royal Mail'. Within a Month and False Fire are great songs.

Unicorn shirt!

Unicorn shirt bought at Material Objects

$9.45 (plus tax)

It's a crazy shirt. I don't know where I'll wear it but I had to have it.

Louise Brooks! again!

Portrait of an Anti-Star bought on

$28.99 (including shipping)

As far as I know this book is out-of-print. It's a nice addition to my LB collection.

Shipping and handling is why I try not to buy online.
It's cheaper to order it from your local stores.

Interested in Louise Brooks? Check out the LB society;


Mary Jane Lamond's Lan Duil bought on

$6.81 (including shipping)

I've been looking for this cd in my local music stores with no luck so I bought it online.

Buying online is okay if you can't get it locally.

Otherwise, try to buy locally. It's better for the economy.
