A super-great trip. We found boatloads of yummy stuff, the weather cooperated, lunch was delicious, and our timing was impeccable – the shops were open, and traffic was light. We even got out before we got stuck on the 401 in gridlock.

Very, very much looking forward to next year.

Thanks heaps, Mike!

  1. Cool. So how much did you get from your Grail List then?


  2. Just wanna say thanks again for all the generosity and doing this with me 3 years straight. It’s becoming one of those annual events that I look forward to like Christmas!


  3. Holy man what a take in?! That Watchmam disc is great man I was able to see EM live with Big Wreck man moons ago and they were good live. For me U2 Ratttle & Hum as well is excellent for after they relased Achtung I was done pretty much with them as they topped that studio album.
    By the way cool music u layer down on Mikes vid,like the chillness of it and than how it ramps up with the good Ol strum action at the end! Well played dude!
    Cool you guys swap stuff with each other….I guess that’s the Destroyer remaster eh?


  4. Great haul – particularly love ‘Oceanic’. Everyone should own that one.


    • Thanks! Yeah, I think that Isis one was $4.99. I mean, for $5 how do you go wrong? But oh man, I came home with so much goodness. Between what Mike SO GENEROUSLY gave me, and what I bought for myself, I am well sorted for a long, long while.

      r.e. Isis, I also have In The Absence Of Truth and Panopticon here, and Not In Rivers But In Drops and their split with Aerogramme (In The Fishtank) on the way!


  5. Some splendid stuff there. I particularly like How I Got over and the Alice In Chains Unplugged. Also, the Mad Season album is a winner. One of my absolute favourites.
