i am one of you, and i found something pretty sweet today. this site allows you to build a cue of things you want to get rid of and things you want to get, and for every cd you give away, you get one for $1 (plus 75¢ shipping) when it comes available. seemed like a really cool idea to me, so i thought i'd throw it out there for anyone else who might be interested.

just don't laugh at my terrible, terrible collection of things i'm giving away if you run across my profile :)

Wow. I don't listen to CDs anymore, but this is a good way to get new music I'd like to transfer to the ole' Pod.

I still buy, listen, create, and cherish CDs. I've gone anti-download completely due to the fact that I'm not willing to pay my hard-earned clams for a lossy format. And it's a shame; the only way to get certain class titles these days is via lossy download. Pity... and the music industry wonders why it's dying. The tail's eating the dog from the inside out, ladies & gentlemen...

That said, I've gotta find out more about thissy here website; the concept looks kinda cool. I wonder if they'd be interested in a Loud Lucy disc for trade!! Or Fungo Mungo... or Paw!! Hey, I could always throw in a Kimm Rogers disc, vintage early '90s!! (schlock, that is)

Loud Lucy was kind of disappointing on at least two levels, to be honest. At the time it came out of the mid-90s signing frenzy in Chicago. Anything even remotely connectable to the buzz words "Wicker Park" or "Bucktown" got eyebrows raised in the upper echelons of the major labels. Liz Phair, Veruca Salt, Triple Fast Action, Fig Dish, and Loud Lucy all got deals pretty much around the same period. Only the last band released a flat-out dud; very disappointing album. And it was a Chicago-based dud, too, thus the second layer of heartbreak.

All apologies to any Loud Lucy fans / band members whom I might be inadvertently insulting in my expressed opinion, which does not necessarily reflect the rest of GloNo, blah blah blah...

So don't pay. That's my mischievous method.
