Life Moment.

Bought a CD today. Not an unusual event, I guess. Not blog worthy in itself, but, here we are. Anyhow, I paid my twenty two bucks at the counter, came home, slit open the plastic wrapping, opened the case... empty. Shook it a bit. Flipped through the booklet. Shook it again for good measure. It remained empty.

Still, I'd gotten more for my money than if I'd bought Usher's Confessions.

just saying that buying a cd with nothing in it is worth more than an usher album.

Hang on, you got a cd that was empty? Was something meant to be in it?

it was meant to contain something to keep me from realising that my life is utterly empty.

This reminds me of the time that I bought a McChicken with no chicken in it.

that was like, fairly often, right? i mean, this is a mcchicken we're talking about here.

This happened to me once, back in 2002 when I bought Disturbed's "Believe" CD. I had to go back to the store and throw a shitfit.

the exchange went pretty easy, actually.

the only problem was that they'd marked the album i bought *down* after i had been there. jeez. luckily, however, they had an import of the same album for american which was five bucks more, so i got that as the replacement. in the end, i ripped them off five bucks, rather than they ripping me off three.

same album, though. just the principle.

a cd in my country cost about $50, which sucks... so i stop buying them.

i don't blame you. i had no idea albums were so expensive in malaysia. (i'm right that this is where you're at, yeah?)

I'm glad the exchange went okay. (And I am cracking up at your Usher joke. There is so much wrong with how many albums he has sold and how many even worse wannabes he's inspired... that well, I can't begin to list them.)

he's such a ponce.

do you know he has a yacht that is better than any of the houses my friends live in?

Don't tell me that. Not only do I like sailing but I'm sure it's better than our house too. (Well at least I can say I've poured my sweat into this house and have the feeling of achievement and pride that comes with... oh fuck it! I want a YACHT! I want a big fucking yacht! :-p)

He does have a great body, though. Still.

lots of people are attractive. doesn't mean they should fill the airwaves with the brand of bland pop.

Excellent point. You're right - he's a sellout with no artistic integrity. And Britney is a dumb talentless whore.

In my opinion.

yeah, why argue it? seems fair enough to me.
