And now, The Cure have announced their U.S. tour dates. It's been a while since I've seen them live, over ten years ago, so I think it's time to see them again. They're going for Madison Square Garden (oh well). They usually have an extensive set-list so It'll be nice to hear the classics. And they're pretty good live. Check out their website for dates.

The documentary is definitely something to check out. It may make you look through your closets for any suitcases you have to get you packing for your move to either Canada or Europe. Or better yet, take better care of yourself so that you never fall in any of the situations that some of the people in the film have fallen victim to. Some things are unavoidable and that is what scares me. It's ridiculous.

You see, I'm a nostalgic fool. I just won't let go of the past. And the past usually means it's filled with the music that kept me sane and alive. So I fuel myself with the past to get going for the present and hopefully the future. So having said that, I went on over to iTunes and just wanted to peek into what they called the Complete Depeche Mode Collection valued at $169.00. I suppose if I just got into DM and never bought one of their albums before, this would be a great way to catch up. But for most of us, we have them in so many forms and have shelled out more than enough for the albums and songs included in the collection. But the one thing that caught my eye was the Early Rare Live Recordings! See, at home, I have three French imported vinyls of DM 12" singles. On each of the flip sides are four live recordings from a concert. So if you had all three 12" singles, which are Love In Itself, Everything Counts and Get The Balance Right, you'd have almost an entire concert. I loved listening to these live recordings because they were done in its original form. They sounded so much warmer because you can actually tell that keys are being pressed and played in real-time rather than everything being on tape. It just sounded good. And there's this whole energy especially when they're doing Shout and Photographic. It reminds of the first time I went to see them.
I should tell you about the woes...
Well, as it turns out, only some of the songs are available for downloads at .99 each. Some selected tracks are labeled as Album Only purchases. So you'd have to spend the $169.00 in order to get the those tracks that you want. As it stands, only fanatics and fans like myself are going to go for those rare live recordings, I don't see why iTunes does not make them available. We already have all those albums on CDs finally and don't want to shell out more just to get the rare stuff. What a tease. And to think of the excitement I felt when I saw those tracks and then the let down when I saw the Album Only label. Well... I don't know if I'll ever download from them again. Bastards!
But why should I be surprised when everything counts in large amounts.

Sometimes - in order to relax and relieve some kind of stress at work, I just stick a post-it on my desk and begin doodling. Usually, these are the results.
I think I'll make it a regular posting. Post-It doodles. Could it catch on? But then I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Post-It doodler's unite.!
