Kitchener was good… we went shopping, I got a watch and some winter boots, Jay got a watch and some shirts for his new job. We rented Galaxy Quest on DVD and watched it at Jay’s dad’s house… I want a dvd player now. They look nice…

Last night we went out with Sue & Vic to a video game & movie rental store that a friend of Jay & Vic’s runs. Sue & I got bored and wandered around aimlessly… he had some Final Fantasy VIII posters that I really wanted, but he wouldn’t sell them to us. I was disappointed.

Today, we met up with Dave for brunch and then Jay’s dad drove us back to Toronto. When we got back, I went to Second Spin (used CD store down the street) and went on a binge – I picked up 8 CD’s there. I got one for free (they have that buy ten get one free card thing, and I already had three or four stamps on it.) Anyhow… most of them were cd’s that I’ve been meaning to buy for a year or longer. Here’s what I picked up…

Poe – Hello
I got this one because Lori played the new Poe CD for me on friday and I really loved her voice… she told me that the first CD is one of those ones you never get sick of, so I got it on that basis. She has an amazing voice.

Fleetwood Mac – Rumours
I’ve been meaning to get this one for a while… I have the Tribute to Rumours CD and I have Fleetwood Mac’s Greatest Hits CD, but I really wanted to get this one to hear all of the originals that I know from the Tribute CD.

Stevie Nicks – Timespace (Greatest Hits)
I had to digitize this CD into mp3’s back when I was a digitizer… I loved the CD then, and made a mental note to pick it up at some point. Stevie Nicks is a beautiful woman.

Chicago – Greates Hits 1982-1989
It’s Chicago… horns and instrumentation and some incredibly well-written songs. Sometimes nothing else will do.

Indigo Girls (self titled)
I really wanted 12:00 Curfew, but they didn’t have that one. This one has Closer to Fine on it (the song everyone knows by Indigo Girls) and a few others that I recognize the names of, and I like the other CD of theirs that I have, so I figure I can’t go wrong with this one.

Trisha Yearwood – Songbook (A Collection of Hits)
Yes, I like country music. Get over it. The girl has a beautiful voice, and her songs bring tears to my eyes.

Skydiggers – Just Over This Mountain
Great album from a Canadian band… I love Canadian music. This whole album is made up of dark songs, storytelling songs, and that lead singer’s incredibly unique voice… I borrowed this from my sister once, in 94-95 while she was travelling in New Zealand. I fell in love with it, then had to give it back. I’ve been looking for a used copy of it ever since, because every time I found it new it was over 20$ and CD’s just shouldn’t be that expensive.

And last but certainly not least…
WHAM! – The Best Of
Yes… I said I was going to buy a WHAM CD a few weeks ago, and I did. Jay shook his head when he saw that one. 80’s pop at it’s highest (or is that lowest?) point…

I’m already dreading tomorrow starting. Blah.

    That Poe CD totally kicks ass! I’ve been listening to it all summer, and I’m not even a little bit sick of it.

    In 1995 Hello was my choice for the best album of 1995 (it was very nearly tied by Joan Osborne’s Relish)

    I downloaded Haunted when I was in NC a few weeks ago, and absolutely adored it immediately. I burned a copy for myself, but then I went out and bought it this weekend because Poe deserves to have moneyt spent for her art, and because I had a feeling I’d find a story behind the music in the notes. I did.

    Haunted is without question the best record of 2000, edging out Radiohead’s Kid A
