    Futureheads and Flaming Stars on order

    Is this a silly post, or what!?

    Hey, just placed an order a little bit ago for the new Futureheads CD at playcentric.com for US$11.20 postpaid and the new Flaming Stars Named and Shamed at deepdiscountcd.com for US$10.18 postpaid. Cool, but will I ever get them? We'll just have to wait and see

    So what you folks got on order or thinking of buying this weekend? I mean, besides beer and pizza and that kinda stuff!

    I've actually got nothing that's really compelling me to the cd store this wk-end, believe it or not. I'm pretty satisfied with enjoying Castanets, J. Arthur, and Twilight Singers right now- the "new" hasn't even started to wear off those yet................

    O, re-reading this, I guess it didn't exactly move the thread forward, huh.

    Hehehe, well, before you's known as Toon Robber, you'd answer to Threadkiller, no?

    Howe Gelb and his band of dusty goat taco cowboys is playing right now all over the map while I'm still patiently, but also a little anxiously, awaiting word on the starting date for my new job...cause a man can only live on stale pretzels for so long...

    I know there are many, many albums out there that I want. Just don't know that I want them, yet.

    I bet you're glad I posted this

    That Futureheads album is at the top of my list. My local store didn't have it in stock when I was there earlier in the week. Instead I picked up The High Water Marks, SNFU, and The Libertines.

    Also on my list are Dungen, Ulysses, and The Dears.

    That'd be me.....I see you turned into a ho since the last time I noticed.

    J. Arthur is touring as an opener for REM right now, but Salt Lake City is as close as they get to me. Ya can have my job starting today if ya don't mind 80 hr weeks and all the chit ya can stand.

    I'm still waiting for the Futureheads to click with me. Not that I'm concerned just yet. XTC isn't just an influence, it's almost like an agenda. With XTC not being a fave you can see where some obstacles might pop up.

    One silly post deserves another.

    I'm hoping to pick up the new Mark Knopfler this weekend. I tried to get it yesterday but they were sold out.

    Picked up the new Kenny Wayne Shepherd today "The Place You're In"

    Also bought the remaster of Tears For Fears' Songs From The Big Chair. Other than the obvious hit singles, I've never heard this before. Great album.
    Let the midnight special shine a light on me.

    I'm still digesting a whole bunch of new (to me) releases: Dresden Dolls, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Rob Dougan, et al.

    Thanks, I guess....but I was just kidding about my post being silly

    Heehee, I do like XTC, or I should say that I used to really love XTC. Have all their albums except the first one and the last one. But I have to admit that last time I listened to one of the early ones, I think Black Sea, I didn't make it all the way through before pulling it for something fresher sounding. Guess maybe nowadays I prefer their later and more melodic music. Anyway, looking forward to giving a listen to that Futureheads and hope it does give a fresh perspective to that sound.

    Been liking that Junior Boys (or is it Juniorboys?) quite a bit more lately. I think I need to rip it and edit it and resequence it before I can really fully appreciate it. But I'm just not quite geeky enough to do it
