The Very Expensive CD

Well, over on the page of 


zfarcher he mentioned that he had picked up the new Loreena McKennitt CD.  Apparently it's been out for months and months and NO ONE TOLD ME.  But I'm not bitter.  That caused me to check the website for the title.  Which led me to the concert dates page - never hurts to check, right?  That lead me to the October date in Providence, RI.  Which led to the purchase of four tickets in the Orchestra section.  I believe this is commonly referred to as "escalation."  Ouch!  That's an expensive CD!

* Surfing www.quinlanroad.com: free
* Purchase of "An Ancient Muse" at Borders (plus a discount copy of "Dune" in hardcover): $28.60
* On-line purchase of tickets for four at the Providence Performing Arts Center: $220.00
* Taking good friends to see an amazing artist perform in person: Priceless

Jealous! That sounds awesome. :-)

Hey - I'm continually jealous of all the great stuff you hop over to see in Canada, so it's only fair.

By the way, I haven't forgotten our Met plans - I'm keeping an eye out.

Now look here! I also have a somewhat strange appeciation for zydeco music. It doesn't mean that I assume that all of my friends share the same tastes and therefore want to know about new albums.

If you want to be informed about these things in the future, then you're going to have to make that clear. :-)

Zydeco, celtica, bluegrass, classical...
Music...I love lots of it, and live it's better. So remember me too. Even if I have to do that find-a-babysitter thing... not to mention the find-a-budget thing. So cheap&free is better still.
And in turn, if any of you like bluegrass let me know.
I've been wanting to go to some of the WWUH concerts but don't like going alone. (Although the husband's tastes include a lot of overlaps, it isn't along the folk-ish line because he's not keen on the tendency to throw in heart-wrenching ballads)
I also want to plan ahead and some year see if I can't get a group together to go to the Labor Day Weekend cajun/bluegrass festival in Rhode Island. Or even Podunk Bluegrass here in East Hartford in July!
And kls-eloise, this isn't a self-serving a use of your comments page...I'm hoping YOU might bite too! (Can't you just imagine the reaction to a medieval pavillion at a bluegrass festival? YEE HAW!)

Why not? I use Merimask's comments page to have conversations with her other friends.

I expect that if you find something good that you'll mention it to help expand my appreciation of assorted musical genres. So there! :-p

But if you'd told me at the time, I wouldn't have spotted the concert in Providence. So it turns into a win-win situation.
