Tomorrow's Shopping Bag

With the Drive-By Truckers' The Dirty South released tomorrow, I will probably limit myself to one album purchase and savor the day. Several other releases are enticing, including Beep Beep, GBV's final studio album, Endochine, David Kilgour, and Mike Watt, and I'll probably pick these up some time this week as well.

Holiday music is starting to appear with greater regularity. This week Cyndi Lauper's remastered Christmas disc, Merry Christmas, Have a Nice Life, appears on shelves, as well as Justin Time for Christmas, Vol. 4.

On the DVD front, the highlight for me is Wodehouse Playhouse - The Complete Collection. I am a huge fan of P.G. Wodehouse, and will try to fit this into the media budget in the next several months.The Munsters first season is available, too, and reminds me that people are usually Munsters or Addams Family fans, but rarely both. I'm in the Munster camp, Fred Gwynne was simply adorable as Herman, a perfect casting choice.

Is there anything I'm missing? Anything on the list I should especially search out or avoid? Thanks in advance for the input.
