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:

    • So I will chime in, but it matters not I'd assume. Firstly doesn't the actual illness have to be in the shot for it to be considered a "vaccine"? Everything I have read says that these shots do not contain COVID. IE: the flu shot, actually contains the flu, so its a vaccine. A Ruebella shot contains, yep Ruebella. Measles shot, ding ding ding, contains measles... so everyone, those are vaccines. If that is the case the first push for intelligence is to stop brainwashing the public into thinking and saying "get vaccinated" when its not. I also read that when you get these experimental shots (as obviously there have been very limited to no trails, so no one know wtf will happen or not from them) you sign a waiver (probably unknown to the shot receiver) that basically states tuff shit if you get sick or die cuz you waived/signed away your rights to use this experimental (or trial) drub. And lastly, just like everything in life having the choice and voice to do for you what you think is best is what its all about. The government or bullying or peer pressure shouldn't dictate shot or no shot. If you are safe, then you won't get it, simple. I know more than 2 handful of people that are fully "vaccinated" and still got COVID. So wtf is that? Be safe everyone, be smart. Mask up, hand sanitize, keep your meathooks out of your eyes and mouth and you'll do just fine.
    • I remember the Left using false statistics about terrorism attacks to shout down people with legitimate concerns. Like "you have more chance of dying from your fridge falling on you than terrorism". Such a fake stat. when you consider you go near a refrigerator dozens of times a day and you may only come near a terrorist once in your life if you are unlucky.  Funny that the same form of manipulation of stats isn't applied to dying from covid. So yes, it is rare to die from a vaccine  but, guess what, it is just as equally rare to die from covid as a 45 year old. 
    • There has to be some form of responsibility attributed to the employer since they mandated the form of vaccine. A lawsuit seems appropriate in those circumstances.
    • side effects suck, and can be fatal. Sad, but real life, and extremely rare. More chance of dying from a coconut landing on your head than from a shark attack etc
    • Agree with all that. Glad you got a shot, even if it was not ideal for you to do so.
    • https://thecovidblog.com/2021/07/11/robin-spring-saunders-45-year-old-baltimore-woman-gets-mandatory-mrna-injection-for-employment-dead-six-days-later/ TheCOVIDBlog.com July 11, 2021 Ms. Robin Spring Saunders. BALTIMORE — A 45-year-old mother achieved her goal of employment at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. But she never made it to her first day of work. Ms. Robin Spring Saunders received her first injection of experimental mRNA on June 21, according to her Facebook page. It’s unclear if it was Pfizer or Moderna. But at this point, it doesn’t really matter. She apparently was not thrilled about receiving the shot. But she did it as a condition of employment at Johns Hopkins University, which mandates the experimental shots for all faculty and staff. The adverse effects were almost immediate. Her cousin, Crystal Grainger, wrote on Sunday morning, June 27 that Ms. Saunders was experiencing life-threatening reactions. She was on a ventilator and suffered from brain and heart issues. Ms. Grainger, as some others have reported, said the reaction came after the second injection. But that would mean Ms. Saunders received two shots in less than a week, which is highly unlikely and very dangerous. Several family members and friends confirmed it was the first shot. The damage was too severe to overcome. Ms. Autumn Harvey, Robin’s daughter, confirmed that her mother passed away later that afternoon. Several others confirmed her death thereafter. From dream to nightmare It appears Ms. Saunders wanted to work with autistic children and earned credentials to do so. Her Facebook page indicates that she bootstrapped her way to the Johns Hopkins opportunity. She was working several jobs at the time, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Amazon. She was hired at Johns Hopkins University to fulfill her midlife goal. Several friends and family members talked about filing a lawsuit against Johns Hopkins. It will be interesting to see if they follow through. Ms. Saunders is survived by her mother and daughter.
    • It was also reported that Santa Cruz's Instagram page was hacked and that's why it was deleted. I hope they return. 
    • via Wiki: Archie Cruz's rehab and band line-up changes & Moonchild (2020–present)[edit] On 2 May 2020, following a tumultuous break-up with Archie's fiancé, he left California and headed back to his native Finland throwing plans for Santa Cruz up in the air while Archie dealt with his personal issues. Ero Cruz and others left the band, leaving the future line-up and planning for Santa Cruz uncertain. On 29 May 2020, Archie Cruz announced on Instagram that he had successfully completed a rehab program. During mid-2020, Archie was accepted as a cast member/participant of the reality TV show Survivor Finland ("Selviytyjät Suomi") due to air in Finland February 2021. After the filming of Survivor Finland, Archie has been writing and recording new music during October / November at Crehate Studios in Gothenburg Sweden. With new management in place plus a team of American and Swedish Producers / Co-writers Archie continues to compile material for and negotiating a new album expected out 2021. In January 2021, Archie Cruz announced the upcoming release of his new single, "Moonchild", and stated that he and Toxy were the only current official members of Santa Cruz. The single was released on 19 February 2021 on all major music platforms, with a music video being released on YouTube simultaneously. The same occurred on 9 April 2021, when a new release titled "Crossfire" was uploaded to all major music platforms, also with an accompanying music video on YouTube. In July 2021, the official Santa Cruz Instagram page was deleted, throwing the future of the band into further speculation.
