Pooch

Music I have bought lately

Lazy Sunday 3 - $20 from the Warehouse. Another collection of "chillout" music. I unfortunately didn't realise it was Copy Protected until I got it back to the office. I am digging Royksopp. They're from Norway!

The Celtic Circle 2 - -5 cents from PlanetJack. I think from collections like this I now have enough Sinead O'Connor tunes to fill two or three albums worth. I'm bemused by the fact that they keep including covers of songs (i.e. a cover of a piece from the Gladiator soundtrack(!), a cover of Enya's Watermark, and a cover of music from the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers soundtrack) - why not use the originals? Perhaps it's a cost thing.

I attempted to procure a copy of Unreal Tournament 2004 at lunchtime, but sadly the stores were bereft. I was told that the release date was today, and the courier hadn't been yet, so I am going to try again tomorrow.
