I just found a mint--MINT--shrinkwrapped--SHRINKWRAPPED--copy of Industry's unbelievably amazingly good 1984 album Stranger to Stranger on eBay. It was never opened. It was never played.

And I got it....For $7. Shipping and handling included.

SEVEN FREAKING DOLLARS!!!

You have no idea how obsessed I am with this album. I discovered Industry through the New Wave Outpost in 2000 with the song "In the Still of the Night", and immediately had to seek out as much as I could find by them. I ended up downloading a number of pretty-decent mp3s from the album--including the lead single, and only real hit, "State of the Nation"--from the late, and VERY lamented, Audiogalaxy.com. Along with my Comateens mp3s, they are the most jealously guarded and multiply-backed-up songs in my entire 100,000-plus-song collection. But this album was never released on CD (though, occasionally, you'll find CD-Red versions of it going on eBay for everywhere from $10 to $75), and it's actually pretty hard to find on vinyl now. I already have a copy, which I ordered years and years ago from...ummm, GEMM.com, I think--or something like that--but it's not in the greatest condition. I remember paying around $10 for it, too.

And I just got a MINT FUCKING COPY FOR $7.

This will be the one that I convert to mp3 and spread throughout the entire universe. Pay attention, folks, 'cause chances are you'll be getting this for X-mass this year. :)

On a side note: syllabi done, I'm exhausted, going to sleep.
