I wasted $6 today.
I've been shopping for music CDs a lot lately, especially at Love Garden. Great selection, awesome prices, all used stuff. Right now, in fact, I'm listening to this excellent Elliott Smith tribute CD, that I wouldn't even know it existed, had I not seen it in the used bin at LG.
When I can't find something new and cool (to me) I go with something I used to listen to when I was a kid. Sometimes this works, sometimes, I hate the music tastes of 1997 Seth.
It worked when I picked up The Urge's "Receiving the Gift of Flavor" on eBay for $4. That's still fun music. I dig it.
But the old Clutch CD I bought today at LG for $6? OOFTAH! That's BAD. It's like Rob Zombie and Helmet got together and had a musically challenged baby. Even the "hit" sounded tired and methodical.
Maybe it's best to leave some of this "lost" music lost.
