^ oh is that your first? (album by a band without a wiki page) :smirk: :smirk: :smirk: :D

I had a friend give me some 20 gigs of music two days ago. We had to stop because his external HDD ran out of space. We hadn't got very far, it's a to be continued. I have enough music to keep me busy for a loooooooong time.

:thumbsup: Love it!

I can see the sense in what you're saying, but...don't you worry that you're sometimes too rational?

If I observed, through this thread, that Farin had picked up a (insert artist name here) album in Frikk Records, Reykjavik, I would feel at least slightly compelled to ask, "Farin, what you been up to in Reykjavik?" If you announced that you had procured some shoe-gazey bollox on a Shanghai market stall, I would be tempted to ask, "How comes you're hanging out in Shanghai, Levis?" I know that holidays are permitted, and many places, even the most god-forsaken ghost towns, have music shops nowadays, but, um..well...y'know?

On this occasion, I was thousands of miles from home, in a city I had never visited before, in a random part of town, killing time with the youngster while other family members were visiting an attraction, (if you can call the Synagogue & Holocaust Memorial tour "an attraction"), when I chanced upon a tiny hole up a murky back alley (ooh er, missus), specialising in "Psychobilly". I've been around a bit, and never yet, by design or chance, encountered a Psychobilly shop, the sort of place that positively welcomes my kind of hairstyle and footwear. I thought that was eyelid-batworthy.

Anyway, whatever happened to the lost art of conversation?

Well, I would have batted my eyelids rapidly (and I don't mean Jessica Rabbit style) if you were in a place like Delhi or Bombay because NO SUCH PLACE exists there, India being a (*understatement alert*) bit slow on the uptake when it comes to music. Hungary, on the other hand, I consider to be relatively more 'hip' and more likely to have a specialist record store and murky alleyways.

Furthermore, if Farin or I did venture out of our cosy abodes into lands unexplored, it would be a curiosity simply because we are broke students and so can't just country-hop (well, I can't anyway - he at least has three countries sitting around with minimal border checks, the lucky thing). If we did, we'd probably tell someone or the other, given that it's such a rarity.

And again, Iceland is the sort of place I'd expect weirdo music stores to pop up. Shanghai, not so much.

As for conversation, here's one! :) :D

there are almost no border checks in the whole EU - which would also include Iceland in a couple years (yay, obscure music shops :D )

unfortunately the travel and stay will have to be paid... and as much as I'm a music fan - I wouldn't make such a journey just for shopping ;)

I could do a quick country-hop to Poland or Denmark, but I'm not too familiar to either music scene really :P
