I didn't have a nice day.

Didn't complain too much.
Architecture In Helsinki. I received one for Chas n'Dave instead.
and got embrace's drawn from memory. bought it off her for £1. got ripped off.
Got: the box for Queens of the Stone Age s/t with the CD of 'Let's Rock with Smashy and Nicey' inside it.
got to about page 15 then had to give up...
nobody got their copies yet :D
hahaha... even worse.. not exactly good PR is it?
And now the argument is over the fact that a few people have it listed as 'owned' on discogs... but then someone pointed out that for example there's a record listed on discogs which was limited to 1 copy but 7 people claim to have it on there :D http://www.discogs.com/Svarte-Greiner-Untitled/release/2472154
No examples of ridiculous oneupmanship there is there?
I've got a 1 of 13 dark ambient record. Can't fucking talk to anyone about it as no-one else has it. Used to get the horn for this kind of thing but now realise how ridiculous it is.
TBH, I think MBV did a great job with the logistics of the new album (crashed site aside).
I have expected to enter my credit card details and get a 'Promise Box' guaranteeing delivery of said record in next 21 years.
That said, I wonder how long it will take for the CD to turn up.
I'm in love with this - all of it.
always glad to spread the NOISE SCENE DRAMAZ :D
was a huge drama on there
All noise-related boards seem DEAD these days. (i think i was probably instrumental in killing half of them tbh)
shame as they finally moved to a new server so it actually works now
The package that arrived contained about a dozen Michael Jackson DVDs. Live in Barcelona, Live in Moscow - fanmade vids done to a decent standard, it seemed. For the hardcore Jacko fan, a treasure trove.
But it wasn't the bag it wanted, it was WTF.
It didn't arrive on release date (or in that week), so I checked the site. They were awaiting stock, there was (weirdly) no option to cancel the order and it hadn't been dispatched. The fact that I'd heard that Play had stopped trading via anything other than the marketplace thing made me think that nothing was going to happen so I ordered it off Amazon and got it within the usual time.
Then a couple of days ago I got an email saying Play had dispatched it and then it arrived. Argh.
by which time I had bought it elsewhere
Received: original 12" of She Bangs The Drums, folded in half to fit through the letterbox.
Bought: Stone Roses s/t reissue, standard
Received: Stone Roses s/t reissue, massive special edition
I hate my friend
Bought Le Tigre - This Island from Music video exchange in Brum
got home, go to play it, cd inside case is Jennifer Love Hewitt!
I don't know what you'd get if you placed an order... Cheetos or a mug?!
Received: 'Secret Name' by Low.
Best thing that ever happened. Started a love of that band. Had never heard of them before then
some great tracks on there. Got it in a bargin bin for $2 too.
Recieved: Oasis - Be Here Now.
14 year old me was furious. This has reminded me of the time, perhaps a year earlier, I went to MVC to buy Korn - Untouchables, and the specky, greasy twat behind the counter tried to convince me I should buy this brand new greatest hits CD from someone called 'Nirvana' instead. I couldn't be told, got Korn instead. At the time I thought he was being pushy, now I see he had my best grunger interests at heart - sorry, MVC Saturday worker.
I bought the dEUS single 'Roses' and when I played it, it turned out to be a Boyzone album. A factory error as the CD has the correct dEUS artwork printed on it.
Bah! I can't wear that!
Received Pretzel Logic by Steely Dan. Got to keep Pretzel Logic and they re-sent Your Arsenal. I FUCKING LOVE AMAZON
Cue several weeks of arguing when it didn't arrive, with the seller claiming I hadn't paid the correct amount, and me proving that I had. When it did arrive, it was the Real Gone CD, not a t-shirt. The seller refused to accept this, even when I sent him a photo of the package. Complete f**kwit.
I pre-ordered 'A Thousand Heys' vinyl by Mazes a few months before it's release. Saw it on Juno on the Wednesday before, got excited and bought it. Then the next day my pre-order I forgot about rolled in, still have 2 copies of it.
