Soooooo, Amazon has Pansy Division's new CD and DVD and Ginolli's book.

Do I order through  Amazon or through work.  Ponder, ponder, ponder.  Goes to check price with shipping versus my employee discount and no shipping.

Or do I preorder Malcolm Gets' new CDs?  He has a solo album coming out AND a new cast album he's in that I forget the title of.

Choices, choices.

I did order a CD of a group that I only had on a secondhand cassette copy of back in the '80s, Motherlode (and NOT the Canadian rock group) - this would be a female acoustic folk group.  I never knew their name only the title of two of their songs.  I got curious and typed in the title of one of  their songs and when that CD popped up I said "GimmEEEEE!!!"

My debit card almost got wallet burn.

I added the "Company" DVD to the order'cause how can you resist Raul Esparza at only $13???

Oh music, how you rule my finances right now.

Editorial Reviews
Product Description
Malcolm Gets has often said that his career happened because of the record cabinet in his parents' living room specifically, the cast albums of the 1950s and '60s that they stored there. Gets was studying to be a classical pianist, but instead of practicing, he would end up playing selections by Rodgers & Hammerstein. Now, after forging an acclaimed career as a star of Broadway (Amour, A New Brain and The Story of My Life) and television (Caroline in the City and HBO's Grey Gardens), Gets retraces his musical roots in his debut album, The Journey Home. Rediscovering his diverse musical touchstones, he digs deep into beloved classics like: You Are Beautiful; and: Long Before I Knew You, takes on anthems both raucous: It s a Fine Life, and romantic: Look to the Rainbow, and mines the passion and pathos in newer ballads like William Finn's: Anytime, and the title track.

wow. we get to hear him sing Anytime?

That, alone, is worth the price of admission.

I enjoyed The Story of My Life. But, it did seem somewhat lost on the Broadway stage.

Ooh! Don't go through Amazon, they suck, IMO!

I need that Company DVD as well! Raul Esparza rocked my world in that show! I wish he'd been in Pushing Daisies a bit longer, but I'm sure he'll pop up again somewhere. Do you guys have it in stock at work, or should I just order it? I would love an excuse to come over to Keene...

Anyway, I know the feeling. Music rules my life, so much of the time. I constantly have tunes swimming through my head, whether I want them there or not!

Good to see you posting! I'll make it over there to see you one of these days!
