quote of the day

I don't often get excited, and when I do I doubt that anyone would notice anyway, but I was very excited.
-- Robert "Chuckles" Fripp

celebrating ronno

I had a great time at the 5th annual Mick Ronson birthday bash yesterday at the Beachland Tavern. Plus, I won the following:

84. Mick Ronson -- Showtime (limited edition double CD)

80. John Zorn -- The String Quartets
81. 310 -- The Dirty Rope

ghosts of appetizers past

Back in 2003, I lived and worked in St. Louis for about four months. There are only two things that I miss: Blueberry Hill and toasted ravioli.

and the list goes on

So what do we have here? First, filling in some gaps in the Heavy/Loud section:
61. Ministry -- The Land of Rape and Honey
62. Ministry -- Psalm 69
63. Ministry -- Filth Pig
64. Judas Priest -- Defenders of the Faith (remastered)
65. Ozzy Osbourne -- Diary of a Madman (good remaster that still features Daisley & Kerslake)

Then beefing up the Zorn collection:
66. John Zorn -- Locus Solus
67. John Zorn -- Filmworks XII: 2002 Volume Two - Three Documentaries
68. John Zorn -- Filmworks XV: Protocols of Zion
69. John Zorn -- Duras: Duchamp
70. Bar Kokhba Sextet -- 50¹¹

Some discs of an electronic nature:
71. Dollboy -- Ghost Stations
72. The Kilamanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble -- self-titled
73. Squarepusher -- Just A Souvenir

Some of a British persuasion:
74. Morrissey -- Swords (2-CD edition)
75. Tindersticks -- The Hungry Saw
76. Gene -- As Good As It Gets (CD single, part one)

And a few odd men out:
77. Eric Dolphy -- Out To Lunch
78. Henry Rollins -- Rollins Speaks: Special Radio Edits (promo)
79. Mike Patton -- Mondo Cane

Not bad for a month's worth of used-CD hunting.
