One of these things is not like the others...

Since first attempting to play with the new network interface for my local library, I've been a mad user.  In just a couple weeks time, I've checked out nearly 40 CDs.  Considering I'd been away for a little over two months as they changed their interlibrary network affiliation, it's been a welcome breath of fresh air to finally be checking out CDs again. 

Heck, even the librarians noticed I was gone and made mention of it when I came back in again for the first time a couple weeks ago.  You know it's bad when the librarians remember you.  And not because you're a chronic late returner, either.

Well, I was checking my online library account to see what CDs were now in stock that I had placed holds on and I found one in my list that just stood out from the rest.  One of those that makes you ask, "what the hell was I thinking?"  It doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the holds I placed.

Gee, I wonder which one it is...


Sorry, Katie and I loved the scene in last week's Scrubs when Turk (Donald Faison) airdances to "Poison."  That alone made this CD worth checking out.

On a related aside, I'm proud of our library network for not alphabetizing "Los Lobos" by using the word "Los."  It's an article and, using the rules of alphabetization, you do not take "a," "an," and "the" into consideration when alphabetizing.  And "los" is just Spanish for "the."  I've seen so many places use "Los" to sort this band name and it's just wrong.

Okay, so it took us a bit longer than we had hoped. Something like four weeks longer than we had hoped. But we did it! We finished watching seasons 1-4 of 24. And it's about damn time, I tell ya....

Today is, indeed, Valentine's Day and I'd like to wish all of you a happy one. V-Day well wishes are running rampant in the blogosphere, admittedly. And that's exactly what you're going to find here today, as well. So, if...

You don't already own a copy of Rumours?!?

I'm tsk tsk-ing here. :-)


Ah, it's not as bad as you might think. I don't own it on CD, but I do own it on vinyl.

Take back your tsk tsk. I own the classic!


What a great library system you have there. My local library's computer interface is so antiquated, that it was easier to use the old card catalogs.


Card catalogs?!?! I haven't seen one of those since high school. Talk about trippy flashback. I don't bother going in to my library anymore to find CDs. This new library system and the one before it are great because it allows me to search for a CD, book, DVD, etc. and widen the search to all the libraries in the network. I was a bit ticked when I first heard we were switching from the old network to the new one because a couple of the libraries in the old system had these massive CD libraries. But the new ones seem to be pretty good as well and do pretty well at stocking new releases as well. Takes a few weeks for them to process and get in the system, but I can wait if it means not paying for it. ;-)

You have me excited about going to the library!

I have a library card, but never use it. I guess I could pirate all of the libraries music too.



And whoever said libraries are a bad thing is just full of it. I love my library.


Let me guess... Bell Biv Devoe is the oddball on the list... hey, variety is the spice of life! That girl is POI-SON.....

Oooh oohh! If you get the new Franz and Wilco (The Ghost one)... put them on the next CD to me!!!


Eric, did you see that episode of Scrubs? Turk did such a good job with the song. You'd love it.

I did get the Wilco one and it's yours on my next shipment. Haven't gotten Franz in yet, though. I've got a ton of new stuff for you.
