Hiding your addiction

Yeah, we have separate accounts and my wife wants me to stop buying CDs every bit as much as I do (and I'm trying) because whereas she is doing okay with her account I am in ridiculous amounts of debt (not including the home loan of course), which at the end of the day does mean we are in debt. So it's not cool.

you both have seperate accounts & a home loan...... er um... how does that work??

 

It is hard work paying off a home loan & maintaining & satisfying a music passion which also must involve going overseas for the big AOR gigs.

We have a joint account for the loan which we put money into each month... but that money comes from each of our own accounts.

We're with Qantas Staff Credit Union and pay absolutely NO fees at all. For a bank, they're great. The only time we get raped is on interest, as per anywhere else, but their rates are also a lot lower than everywhere else. But there are no account keeping fees, other ATM fees... none of the bullshit every other bank throws at you. I like them, as far as you can like a motherf*cking bank.

The enemy has changed her position at her job. This means she will be home more :crying: .

which means, I have to be more clever on intercepting the postman and going out on journeys to the c.d. store..

As you can tell, I haven't been buying much.

Wish me luck!!!!

There was a time back when if I came home from a pawn shop or Uncle Sax's house with too many cd's that I would hide them under the seat of my car and bring in just a few at time. Or I would take any stickers off and bring in a few and if she gave me a look I would say "these are from my collection I was listening to them in the car and now I'm putting them back!". Which made no sense because I have a 25 minute drive to work there is no way I can listen to 10 cd's in that time.

 

I don't know why I did that, my wife is really cool and she would just roll her eyes at me anyway. Besides, what can a woman say anyway, they have two feet and 200 shoes. I have 2 feet and 2 shoes.

 

Now, I have so many cd's the chances of coming home with so many at one time is not really possible.

 

As for packages from orders, she'll ask "what is that, another Tyketto cd?". She seems to think the only band that makes cd's is Tyketto and I'm not really sure why that is. Maybe because it is one of the few bands she will tolerate out of my collection.

 

If she ever did get cranky about a purchase I have so many excuses it is not funny:

"I got it off ebay for way cheap and it is worth like a million dollars!" (exaggeration of course)

"I sold something on Craig's list so I used that extra money to order a cd i want"

"I had some extra money in Paypal so I ordered this cd"

"I traded one of the heavyharmonies folks so it didn't cost me anything"

"I found it in a pawn shop for $2 but already have it so I am gonna trade it or sell it."

Yeah, telling her you got them in a trade is the best way to go. Sadly, that only seems to occur to me when I actually do get CDs from trading. The other time it's just me all like, 'I just saw them for so cheap and had to get them... it was only the one package!' I say as I open the letterbox and there are 8 more.

 

But yeah, my wife's cool too... it's just that she knows how much money I don't have and how much I can't afford CDs which is as annoying to her as it is me. The word "addiction" is no doubt the key to this thread. I wish I could stop. Would probably mean some more holidays... :(

I've had the music addiction go all the way back from my when I lived at home and my mom (back when) to losing a few girlfriends over it (and other addictions), and the battle continues. I have found women to be a pretty expensive hobby (whether it's time, headaches/drama, or of course money), and I am such an independent person that I find myself like melodicrockoz.....I won't budge on my few passions in life, and thats just the way it is. I'm otherwise a mellow person, but when women try and change me it makes me get hostile too. I usually end up saying to myself, I'll change to whatever you want if you change to whatever I want which would be a lingerie-wearing inviting her hot friends to join vixen ha. Naturally I specialize in short term relationships. But as far as music and collecting goes, thats long term :banger:

My wife doesn't want me to change, she just wants me to cut down a bit. My c.d. collecting has slowed down due to the live shows I've been going to. She wants me to get a part time job just for my hobbies, which is ROCK & ROLL!!! :headbanger:

Hey CDJ, I have three rooms that have been empty ever since I kicked the kids out. They would be a perfect place for you to hide your CDs. I'll even let you visit them from time to time. Sounds like a great idea to me. I'll wait for the UPS man to show up will your collection.

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
