♪ Thanks For Tuning In! ♫

I love buying CDs! I've found some great ones at yard sales + thrift stores, but most I buy online.
I have a Google Drive folder of most of these ripped as MP3s. Feel free to ask for the link!
I also have a BandCamp account where I buy a lot of music. There's a wishlist there if you'd like to buy anything for me... ;;-)

"The Electric Light Orchestra" by Electric Light Orchestra [1971] "Out of the Blue by Electric Light Orchestra [1977] (I was lucky enough to find this at a record store in North Carolina.) "Time" by Electric Light Orchestra [1981] (My first ELO album and one of my faves!)
"The Count of Monte Cristo - Highlights from the Musical" by Frank Wildhorn & Jack Murphy [2008] "Return to the Sea" by Islands [2006, 2016 remaster] "The ArchAndroid" by Janelle Monáe [2010] (Thrifted this with little knowledge of Monáe's music, and I love it!)
"Be The Cowboy" by Mitski [2018] "Mr Twin Sister" by Mr Twin Sister [2014] (This came with my order of Return to the Sea. Free CD! It's very nice.) "Nothing to Fear" by Oingo Boingo [1982]
"77" by Talking Heads [1977] "Remain in Light" by Talking Heads [1980] (This album cover always scared me as a child so I never expected I'd get into this band, lol) "Stop Making Sense" by Talking Heads [1984] (Listened to this a lot before I ever watched the film, which is also amazing.)
"Little Creatures" by Talking Heads [1985] (Got this & SMS at a yard sale absolutely full of CDs!) "Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum" by Tally Hall [2005, 2008 reissue] (I was a huge Tally Hall fan as a teen!) "Good & Evil" by Tally Hall [2011]
"Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?" by The Unicorns [2005] (Such a fun album!) "Creepy Classics" by PC Treasures [????] (This is a small compilation of classical music.) An unmarked CD I got at Goodwill that's just 40 minutes of Halloween SFX (but look how cool the disc is!)

Wishlist?
• I'd love to have more Oingo Boingo albums! For how long I've loved them I just have Nothing to Fear.
• Anything by Ezra Furman or Bryan Scary! (I have some of their music on Bandcamp but I think it'd be so cool to have CDs of theirs.)
• The Catherine Wheel by David Byrne.
• Self-Ish or The Normal Album by Will Wood.


In addition to CDs I also have a lot of CD-ROMs, mostly games I played as a kid but a few ones I've gotten recently as well.
It's such a bust how computers are coming with built-in CD players less and less. Owning a physical game feels more personal and less ephemeral.
Am I saying this just because CD-ROMs were how I played computer games as a kid and thus a highlight of my childhood?... Nope, I still think physical media is important.

"Cartoon Network All-Stars" [2006] "Grim Fandango" [1998] (I ended up playing this on Steam cuz it would always BSOD my computer at Carla's conversation in Year 2... Amazing game regardless!) "Half-Life" [1998] (Another game I played on Steam)
"KidPix Studio Deluxe" [1998] "Maisy's Playhouse" [1999] "Miss Spider's Tea Party" [1999] (A childhood favourite!)
"Myst" [1993] (Unfortunately never finished playing...) "The Neverhood" [1996] (Absolutely amazing graphic style!) "Pac Pack" [1998]
[No image available!]
"Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When it's Dark Outside" [1996] (Another absolute childhood favourite!) "Pajama Sam: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet" [2001] "The Sims: Deluxe Edition" [2002] (Recently thrifted, not yet played.)
"Spore" [2008] (Never finished the Space stage cuz it always freezes and crashes randomly... The Creature stage is the most fun anyways, hehe.) "Strawberry Shortcake: Amazing Cookie Party" [2004] (This always bugged out on Orange Blossom's level, but despite that it was always my favourite.)

Wishlist?
• I know they're notoriously rare, but I'd love Eastern Mind and/or Chu-teng. Their boxes are very cool.
