Yesterday:

Cheech & Chong Up In Smoke stashbox containing a blu-ray and dvd of the movie w/ lots of extras. On sale at Fye* for $14.99.
Blue Oyster Cult: Don’t Fear The Reaper: The Best of BOC also from Fye.*
Two ten pound dumbbells from Big 5.

*I discovered this Fye store in the Mall in my new town. The only place I’ve found in town that has CDs but the Manager told me they will be discontuing them within the year.

Very nice. Back in 1976 I purchased a Dual 1228. Still works beautifully after 42 years only requiring an adjustment from time to time. Enjoy!

They have the CDs to lure people into the store. Remember Circuit City? In the 90s they had tons of cool underground stuff for cheap. A guy at my local record store said to me, " I shouldn't be telling you this, but check out Circuit City". I found so much good stuff. CDs that today are selling for absurd amounts of money.

Up In Smoke: The track called Lost Due To Incompetence by Yesca is badass. Highlight of the soundtrack for me.

^^^^^ very nice jpd! ^^^^^

A few weeks ago a couple of us spent some quality time after hours in a friend of Joe 90's home appliance store with some monumentally sized TV's and home theatre systems.
Joe 90 being the geeks geek had been there earlier in the day and arranged
"the perfect" TV-Audio-PlayStation/X-Box combo.....

Just when I thought gta couldn't get any better, then out came an F1 game
and it was all on.....Poor Joe, put his neck out and blamed the TV :lol:

All I have to do now is persuade the powers that be that we must replace a huge TV
with a massive TV.....the black is sooooo black etc.....not a hope in hell.....

No, only the one package in the shopping cart (i originally wanted to go into another supermarket, but then i saw a guy coming out of this one with a package of the new gold standard under his arm). As you can guess from looking at the supermarket shelf, the timewindows these days to get any at all are quite narrow :mrgreen:
