I am kind of a sucker for compilation/sampler/various artist/soundtracks etc….I don’t know why, maybe something about the surprise factor…I don’t know, I can’t really help you out with an explanation just some music…Weeeee!

Hope everyone survived their Monday, poor Mentok is still experiencing his Monday…Everyone give Mentok a sympathizing sad face :( hehehe

    Various artist’s CD’s are the best and I am quite pleased I could contribute to a lucky day. :)

    I always feel I’m getting a special deal when I buy a compilation. Probably something about all those different bands on one disc fostering a false sense that I’m getting more than I really am. Or something.

    And Daniel Johnston, boy, do I love his stuff. I was fortunate enough to see him in London a few years back, and he was compelling. If you’ve not seen the documentary ‘The Devil & Daniel Johnston,’ I’d urge you to do so post haste…

    I’m bound to like compilations aren’t I! Are we gonna hear you on the CP again soon?

    FiL, I have not seen that documentary but it is going in my queue ASAP. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Tim, compilations are right up your alley indeed. And yes I need to shape up here and submit my first contribution to the CP 2007. :) I am such a slacker.

    I share Fil’s economic appreciation of compilations, yet since I was a teen during the 70s there will always be a corner of my mind that whispers “K-Tel”…those atrocious “Super Hits!” albums that blackened the name of compilations everywhere ;-)

    BTW, did anyone else notice that K-Tel just started selling Mini-Pops again this Christmas?

    that daniel johnston covers double cd is one of the most rewarding cd purchases i’ve made in a long time. (there’s this m. ward track on it and…) and yeah that docu is fascinating
