Cranking out the white noi-oi-oise...  
So, my sister and I spent the early afternoon today shopping for clothes for her (I was trying to behave myself) and then we went to lunch at Chili's. Good times.

After leaving the restaurant, Kath asked if we could stop into the Strawberries next door to look for a CD she wanted. Seemed like a good plan to me, as Strawberries was having a good sale on DVDs (Brandon and I picked up 6 between the two of us for just $9.99 each). While she searched for the CD she wanted (which they ended up not having), I went to look over at the sale shelves. Didn't end up buying any DVDs, but when my sister came back over, she found in the cassette bin a copy of David Bowie's album Black Tie White Noise. And it was buy one for $2.49 and get another one free. I haven't bought a cassette since I was in elementary school. Kath had also found an old tape with Mortal Kombat music on it, so we figured we could splurge and spend the couple bucks.

I'm gonna have to find some batteries for my Walkman now, hehe. David Bowie is always worth it, of course.

I also finished my last class of driver's ed tonight. Now, I just have to do the driving lessons and I'm set. Look out road, here I come.

I also think I used too many parenthesies in this post, but it's too late to care.
Mood: Mellow
Music: David Bowie - Black Tie White Noise

I haven't bought a cassette since I was in elementary school.

*cough* *wheeze* You young whippersnappers! Why, when I was your age...

...well, okay, when I was your age, I was buying only CDs, but I still remember when CDs were a new, expensive technology, and my family didn't even get a CD player until... I believe it was my freshman year of high school. Hell, when I was in high school, I remember some guy a friend of mine knew trading in all his CDs and going back to tapes because he said that they were cooler.

Rock out.

I got a CD player in the seventh grade, and it was the only one we had for a few years. Even though we have a stereo system set up in the living room, it has only radio, tape, and vinyl capabilities.

My first CD was A Hard Day's Night. I had just gotten into The Beatles that year. I know I still have it ^_^

Everybody knows vinyl is the only way to be.

ah, cassettes. and records. Do you know who Basia is? She was like a Czech (Russian, Hungarian??? I dunno) pop star in the 90s. I think that was our first CD at home. I still hear her stuff randomly in grocery stores.

My favorite record was Donna Summer. "I'm lookin' for some HOT STUFF baby tonight!" ahhh, disco...

My favorite cassettes were The Beach Boys, and The Dirty Dancing Soundtrack. lol. "Hungry eyes...one look at you and I caaaan't disguise, I've got...hungry eyes..."

oh, sorry, had to share the memories. =)

When I was little and only really listened to the chorus of a song's lyrics, I would sing that part over and over. In my mind, I always had this image of eyes with teeth, though, so I guess I didn't quite "get it" yet. I totally loved that song though, and we've still go the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack on LP.

yeah... that album is definitely one of my favorite bowie albums.

I think the late eighties/early nineties stuff is really under appreciated. Miracle Goodnight rocks my socks.
