View Full Version : Easter Eggs

Last night I was watching a re-run of the excellent Austin City Limits Wilco/Bright Eyes concert on the PBS Hi-Def channel and afterwards decided to rip A Ghost Is Born to my HDD. Well, I've owned this CD since it was new and have used songs from it on comps before but that must have been before I had QuickTime installed on my PC. When I popped it in the drive QT opened and there was a bonus EP there to download. Cool. It has "Panthers" and "Kicking Television", and live versions of "At Least That's What You Said", "The Late Greats", and "Handshake Drugs" on it. How the hell did I go all this time without knowing this?

I wonder what other CDs I own have easter eggs too? And DVDs for that matter.

I can certainly see where easter eggs can be fun for the fans and clever and all that, but by the same token, I'm not going to go around buying CDs and DVDs based on the premise that there may be easter eggs. It'd be different I guess, if the label informed the buyer that a disc contained easter eggs.
