Tomorrow's Shopping Bag

Two DVD's are the highlight of this week's releases for me. The Pixies DVD includes a 1988 live show, several promotional videos, and two documentaries, adding up to two and a half hours of Black Francis and the gang. I have been anticipating the first season of the Kids In The Hall on DVD for a while. My wife has yet to experience the series, and is looking forward to seeing exactly what I've been raving about. She wasn't horribly impressed with Brain Candy, but I'll chalk that up to all the jokes from the series that went over her head.

The Streets release two different singles for "Fit But You Know It" today, and these look like the only new cd's I'll pick up tomorrow.

The Streets: Fit But You Know It, Pt. 1 [cd]
The Streets: Fit But You Know It, Pt. 2 [cd]
Pixies [dvd]
The Kids in the Hall - Complete Season 1 (1989-1990) [dvd]

These are interesting, just not interesting enough to pick up at full price:

Bela Fleck & Edgar Meyer: Music for Two [cd]
Black Sabbath: Black Box: The Complete Original Black Sabbath (1970-1978) (box set) (remastered) [cd]
Camper Van Beethoven: II & III [cd]
Camper Van Beethoven: Camper Van Beethoven [cd]
Camper Van Beethoven: Camper Vantiquities [cd]
Camper Van Beethoven: Telephone Free Landslide Victory [cd]
Dan Zanes: Sea Music [cd]
Dave Edmunds: From Small Things: Best of Dave Edmunds (remastered) [cd]
Glenn Branca: Lesson No. 1 [cd]
Loretta Lynn: Van Lear Rose [cd]
One Am Radio: A Name Writ In Water [cd]
Patti Smith: Trampin' [cd]
Various Artists: Emo Diaries 10: Hope I Hide Inside [cd]

Big Fish [dvd]
Louder Than Bombs [dvd]
Love Actually [dvd]
Osama [dvd]

Help lighten my wallet, what else is released this week that is worth a look?

the best part about the KITH DVDs is that they are going to be the HBO versions, which are even saucier than the still-censored in the US Canadian versions shown on Comedy Central.

how about the Brightblack cd. Nice Paul Oldham production with the Bonnie Prince Billy doing some backing vocals.

I thought the Banhart CD was coming out next week, I can't wait to pick it up, it sounds great.

"The Cooler" looks interesting, but I'll probably rent it, we don't buy that many movies.

I'll check out Brightblack, it sounds great.
