Cash Money's buyer's remorse hour - Check out these stupid things I buy!

Post by Kinda Long Hair on Thu Jul 19, 2012 8:46 pm

So I recently got a debit card, which means I can buy idiotic things off the interwebs.

Today, I purchased a THE TRAVELING WILBURY'S VOLUME 1 CASSETTE IN LIKE NEW CONDITION! TESTED! (aka Traveling Wilbury's Vol. 1 on cassette).


For those of you who don't know who the Traveling Wilburys are, they're an 80s supergroup consisting of George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne.

So I bought this little gem for $2.99 (plus $2.50 shipping). My instant reaction was "sweet, I bought a cassette! I <3 outdated media formats!" My second reaction was "Oh shit, what the hell am I going to do with a cassette?" I have two places to play a cassette: my car (and I'm totally going to use it in there, but, I mean, I won't get much out of it on a mile drive to school.) and my stereo (although, the tape deck is always somewhere between really shoddy or flat out broken).

It's supposed to arrive before next Tuesday, join me back here then when I open it, see If I got ripped off (probably), and figure out what the hell i'm going to do with it.

UPDATE

I still haven't received my cassette, but I have found a cassette player.
I didn't write a whole story about my search for it because I didn't want to.

I also bought something new, The White Stripes: Under The Great White Northern Lights.
This one wasn't a spur of the moment yolo purchase like the cassette, though. I bought this after failing to find the movie at my local Walmart and video rental store.

Which will get here first, the DVD or the cassette? Only time will tell

Purchase #0.5 and #1 - Clockwork Angels Vinyl and Traveling Wilbury's Cassette

Post by Kinda Long Hair on Sat Jul 28, 2012 1:18 am

Come read a tale the likes of which haven't been seen since Plan 9 from Outer Space! (spoiler'd for slow computers):



So I finally got these things.
The cassette arrived three hours before the record.
I ordered the cassette two weeks after I ordered the record, and it came first. Seems legit.

Anyways, I already had a record player, so the only bad thing about this purchase was the whole "wait a f*cking year for it to ship" thing.



One thing I did find odd with these disks is the sides aren't labeled.
Seriously.
How do you people expect me to find the starting point if you don't tell me where it is?
What manner of magician do you take me for?
The first song has, like, a four minute instrumental introduction, so the lyric sheets didn't really help in that aspect.

This thing did, however, come with a free digital download card. (as if any other modern vinyl record doesn't come with one of those magic pieces of paper)
It's like getting the same album twice for the price of one and a half albums (plus shipping).
This brings me to another point, I friggen paid for that shipping, why did you take a month to do it?


And now it's time for what you all came for



THE TRAVELING WILBURY'S VOLUME 1 CASSETTE IN LIKE NEW CONDITION! TESTED! has arrived.

Now in an epic journey that I totally got lazy about and didn't document, I found a tape deck at our house.
I also found my dad's tambourine that I hadn't seen in, like, five years.
I had decided he lost / sold that thing years ago.
I wonder what other types of random percussion instruments we have lying around our house...

Anyways, so I found the tape deck.
Now where should I put it?



ON THE FUCKING FLOOR WHERE IT BELONGS



Now let's take a look at this cassette



As you can tell because of the unfortunate lighting, there's some scratches on the case.
LIKE NEW! TESTED! MY ASS. I GUESS YOU BASTARDS DIDN'T TEST THE CASE! I WANT MY REAL MONEY BACK.



The actual tape seems to be in pretty good condition, I guess tha- wait
is that....
is that..............



Liner notes???????????
No, it can't be, they don't have those on cassettes...



GUESS WHAT
THIS CASSETTE HAS LEGIT LINER NOTES
BITCH, JUST TRY TO PUT LINER NOTES IN YOUR FANCY HIGH TECH iTUNES SONGS.
JUST TRY

Anyways, I then proceeded to listen to my cassette.
It plays great.
God, this is a fantastic album.


Anyways, I guess I should put this with some of my other cassettes.



THAT'S RIGHT, I ALREADY HAVE A FEW CASSETTE TAPES IN MY POSSESSION
IN FACT, I HAVE MORE THEN A FEW



BET YOU DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING


Join me once again in a few weeks when my The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights DVD arrives
