the sky is getting ominously dark in this late afternoon. maybe God knows about the RNC convention in New York.

yes. i went cd-shopping again today. didn't think i'd come back with so many, though. honestly. i was just going to the used record store to pick a couple of discs i'd left there last time i went. here were my finds:

Nas - Nastradamus
Nas - The Lost Tapes
Mobb Deep - Free Agents - The Murda Mix Tape [ 2cd edition. nice ]
P. Diddy & the Bad Boy Family - The Saga Continues... [ only got this to finally get my hands on the Neptunes' fabulous "Diddy" ]

that was all fine. then i swung by a couple of record stores (HMV didn't have Mobb Deep's Hell on Earth on sale anymore. bastards. get your stickers right). nothing. until the last one. here's what i ended up walking out with:

Hayden - Elk-Lake Serenade [ extremely cheap and i'm heavily into folk these days ]
Wilco - Being There
Wilco - Summerteeth

my Wilco collection is only missing A Ghost Is Born now; which i could have gotten but i think i'll be alright for a few days with these :) i also got the Wilco book, Learning How to Die, by Greg Kot. Frank Chromewaves raved about it the other day and i've always been curious about in-depth analysis of songs and music in general. add Wilco to that and this is a perfect fit for me. huge thanks to Frank for letting me know this was not just a 'band biography'.

musc-wise, this was a very successful day for me.

np: blue rodeo - casino
