Every morning I try to grab a few CDs out of my big enormous CD binder and take them into work. This particular morning, I was all excited to take Idlewild's The Remote Part with me. I hadn't listened to it in awhile, but I'd been thinking about the first single from that release - "American English" - and really wanted to hear it.
So I go to take it out of the sleeve, and ... it's in two pieces.
TWO. SEPARATE. PIECES.
I don't have to tell you that this is not the way CDs are supposed to be. I have no earthly idea how a CD that has not moved from this sleeve inside this binder for at least 8 months somehow got split in two, but ...
It's dead, Jim.
I should have grabbed 100 Broken Windows instead.
Anyway, I was complaining about this to John in an email and I couldn't remember the actual name of the CD, so I went to the band's website to look it up. Which is when I saw that they have new a CD out, Warnings/Promises. This excites me in ways you cannot imagine.
So I click around for a release date and ... although it is presently available in the UK ... it will not be available in the States until AUGUST.
Well let me tell you something - I can't wait that long!
I've listened to all the clips (the first single, "I Understand," is pretty good) and watched both of the videos, and I really must have this now. NOW! Or at least soon (like, within a week). Delayed gratification is just not my thing.Posted by Highwaygirl on April 11, 2005 11:46 AM to the category Entertainment
