    New[and used]bury Comics

    If you live near a Newbury Comics, I suggest you visit it this week. They're in the middle of their annual sale which means that you can take 20% off any CD or DVD in the store with no minimum purchase. This includes new, used, and sale items. (Actually, the sale items are "as marked" unless the 20% discount is a better deal than the sale price.)

    I had a small pile of neglected CDs burning a hole in our storage room. So I was able to sell those off and use the credit (avec excellent discount) to buy $99 worth of music for a mere $38:

    Cocteau Twins: BBC Sessions
    Wire: Wire On The Box 1979
    The Fall: The Complete Peel Sessions 1978-2004

    All three are British bands and all three feature live sets (mostly at BBC with Peel). What's up with that?
