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 ||"Out of the Blue by Electric Light Orchestra  (I was lucky enough to find this at a record store in North Carolina.)||"Time" by Electric Light Orchestra  (My first ELO album and one of my faves!)|
|"The Count of Monte Cristo - Highlights from the Musical" by Frank Wildhorn & Jack Murphy ||"Return to the Sea" by Islands [2006, 2016 remaster]||"The ArchAndroid" by Janelle Monáe  (Thrifted this with little knowledge of Monáe's music, and I love it!)|
|"Be The Cowboy" by Mitski ||"Mr Twin Sister" by Mr Twin Sister  (This came with my order of Return to the Sea. Free CD! It's very nice.)||"Nothing to Fear" by Oingo Boingo |
|"77" by Talking Heads ||"Remain in Light" by Talking Heads  (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  (Listened to this a lot before I ever watched the film, which is also amazing.)|
|"Little Creatures" by Talking Heads  (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 |
|"Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?" by The Unicorns  (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!)|
• 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" ||"Grim Fandango"  (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"  (Another game I played on Steam)|
|"KidPix Studio Deluxe" ||"Maisy's Playhouse" ||"Miss Spider's Tea Party"  (A childhood favourite!)|
|"Myst"  (Unfortunately never finished playing...)||"The Neverhood"  (Absolutely amazing graphic style!)||"Pac Pack" |
|[No image available!]|
|"Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When it's Dark Outside"  (Another absolute childhood favourite!)||"Pajama Sam: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet" ||"The Sims: Deluxe Edition"  (Recently thrifted, not yet played.)|
|"Spore"  (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"  (This always bugged out on Orange Blossom's level, but despite that it was always my favourite.)|
• I know they're notoriously rare, but I'd love Eastern Mind and/or Chu-teng. Their boxes are very cool.
