It’s been a good week in terms of CDs and books acquisitions, though my wallet and Stinky’s prolly wouldn’t agree. Before Andrew’s Music Magic closed its doors for the last time in CM, we made one final assault and came away with:
- Parachutes – Coldplay
- The Essential Electric Light Orchestra – ELO
- Marble Arch Years boxset – Kinks
- My Generation (Deluxe Edition) – The Who
Not bad, if I say so myself. It’s been an absolute blast listening to ELO in the mornings on the way to work. Our current favourite song is Livin’ Thing and we just love singing along to it, especially during the falsetto parts.
As for books, I’m sorry to say I did not succeed in not buying any new ones. I had made a resolution that I would make a dent on all the Geology textbooks I had recently acquired from Betterworld Books, but that plan fell flat last night. I went to Kino with the sole purpose of getting a couple LP guides (all travel books on 20% discount till 31st March) but came away instead with the stack of books you see above. I guess Pettijohn’s Sedimentary Rocks will just have to wait.
Bali/Lombok trip next week and Stinky, Lil and I have yet to secure rooms, organise itinerary and purchase connecting tickets. Nada. This must be the most disorganised vacation all three of us have ever been on. Haha.
