Well, I bought a whole bunch of albums on Itunes this week. Bought 12 albums. I rarely buy that many albums but like the Instagram post says, what are ya gonna do with America shutdown and stuff, ya know? All the retail stores including Best Buy, the malls, the movie theaters and everything else are all closed. You can’t go shopping for fun stuff for a while and there’s nothing to do in this America shutdown so I thought why not defeat boredom by buying a bunch of albums just for this one time.
Anyhow, here is the list of albums I got this week:
- Phish – Sigma Oasis (their new album they just put out)
- Phish – Hoist
- Phish – Lawnboy
- Joe Satriani – Shapeshifting (new album that just came out today)
- Joe Satriani – Strange Beautiful Music
- Joe Satriani – Super Colossal
- Dolly Parton – Hello, I’m Dolly
- Dolly Parton – Jolene
- Ac/Dc – Highway To Hell
- ZZ Top – Afterburner
- Code Orange – Underneath
- Tom Waits – Nighthawks at the Diner
Yeah, I know it’s a lot but what else are ya gonna do in this shutdown, ya know? You’re getting forced to stay at home anyways so I’m bored just like the rest of you.
I already listened to both Dolly albums and I absolutely loved them. I’m not into country music much but I love the old stuff, though. That’s what real country is supposed to sound like and they don’t make country music like that anymore. I want to get into more Dolly music and admittedly, I’m getting into country music more. I guess that’s what happens when I get older, ya know? I’ll always hate today’s “pop country” but I do like country music, don’t get me wrong.
I also listened to Code Orange… a metal band that I’ve never heard of. I’ve never heard of that band until I read an interview with them in Guitar World magazine so it got me to buy their album “Underneath” and I loved it. That album is great metal and something unusual and different. I think Reba Meyers is a great guitarist and singer, she’s one to look out for.
I’m a big fan of Phish and trying to get all their records. Got their new album “Sigma Oasis” so I decided to get a few more Phish albums.
Joe Satriani has been a favorite artist of mine for years and I followed his career for a long time. Trying to collect all his records as well. Got his new album “Shapeshifting” today and got a few more of his older records which I’m looking forward to hearing. Love the Satch, he’s one of the reasons I play.
Got another AC/DC album from the Bon Scott era and got another ZZ Top record.
As far as Tom Waits goes, I’ve been a fan of his for a long time but never really bought any of his records until now so I got “Nighthawks at the Diner” first to start with. I’ve always wanted that album so I finally got around to getting it, looking forward to hearing that album this weekend. Never bought his records in the past but I’ve heard a lot of his music before. He’s great and wanna start getting his music.
Yeah, this is a lot of albums but fuck it, I’m bored, ya know? Can’t help it. I also bought 5 books to read for my Ipad. I’ve been doing a lot of reading this week too… I’ve been reading graphic novels this week but I after I finish those, I’ll get to those digital books that I purchased. Mostly wrestling books and 1 thriller novel.
What am I gonna do with no gym? This sucks but I gotta defeat boredom like the rest of you.
