Insound has Pitchfork's Top 50 Albums of 2005 at 25% off.
i hurriedly picked up the following:

M83 - Before the Dawn Heals Us
The Mountain Goats - The Sunset Tree
Matt Sweeney and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Superwolf
LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem

the week has been really good about giving me a bunch of online orders (which is always fun to receive:) i'd placed before and over the holidays.

some Threadless:

Nothing, by Carl Nyman/Sixten
Time Fades, by Samuel Lara

DVDPacific:

The Straight Story (i managed to hunt down the american/Disney version of the dvd)
Le corbeau (The Criterion Collection)

i also received the Harman/Kardon surround speakers i was torturing myself with last week and hooked them up (very) late last night. by the time they were all set-up it was 3 am and i couldn't stay awake so i had to give up watching a film by then. but i swore i'd give myself the time to watch one this morning :)

hey, i've been a bit torn about this. i got a gift certificate from the ex-roommate last week. $40 at Future Shop. i thought i'd get the Wizard of Oz 3-disc set but i'm not sure anymore. i could get a couple of cd's but i got an idea. since i got into Lost last week (almost watching an episode a day) i thought i could get the excellent box set. what are your thougths on that? i could rent out the whole set fairly cheaply, but that set looks mighty damn good. i'd pay up about $30 of my own money (the set's fairly expensive), and that's not issue. i was just wondering, you TV on DVD buyers, and especially Lost fans, if this set was worth owning. thanks :)
