times are tough these days. especially for a gal obsessed with buying music. gotta find new means to make my cd purchases without breaking the bank and i just found one! good ol' bmg! haha! i know, you're probably like, damn that thing's still around? and she's still a member? yes i am! since november of '02 (had to peep my account history to find that one out. haha!). anyway, bmg had a fat sale on their site today - 80% off their stock. plus i had 4 free cd's in my back pocket from either a past purchase or just by accumulating points by default of being a member (it pays to have some loyalty, people!).
anyway here's what i picked up, in no particular order. 7 cd's for a whoppin $43! and that included tax and their ridiculous shipping charges! score!
katy perry - one of the boys (didn't like her at first, but was impressed by her vma performance and i think her video blogs are hysterical. so i created a katy perry station on pandora and actually like a bunch of her songs! fun pop music. doesn't sound like anyone else out right now. and i LOVE the title track, one of the boys. LOVE.)
britney spears - blackout (i have all of brit's albums except for this one. can't believe i'm admitting that but i am. she just makes good pop music people! don't hate!)
janet jackson - discipline (a late add to my cart. heard some decent tracks and decided, hey why not)
blackstar - blackstar (bro stole this from me and lost it - just buying a replacement. thanks to vh1's 100 greatest hip hop songs for reminding me about this album)
nerd - in search of (inspired by pandora - been listening to a lot of their non-radio tracks. can't hate on these guys - they come up with some dope beats)
nerd - fly or die (same as above)
bob marley - legend (bro stole this one too but he didn't lose it, he just refuses to give it back! beyotch. i really should play the nkotb card here to get it back, but i'm thinking of keeping that in my back pocket a little longer and save for another day - ie the holidays. haha! totally kidding. sorta)
unfortunately bmg isn't hip on the most recent releases - takes a while to filter down to them. so no ne-yo or robin thicke purchases just yet. haven't been going to target so i keep missing the sales. now i don't want to pay 15 bucks a pop for these discs so i'll need to figure out a way to get these cheaper! help!
