I lent this to a friend of mine three, or was it four, years ago, and I finally got it back, today. The reasons being, I would forget about it, then, when I remembered, it was difficult to meet up due to our schedules. Anyway, finally, he remembered, and he asked when I was available and where we could meet. And even after all that, after four years with it, he never even watched it. The bastard! I have not lent out anything since, and I will continue not lending out my shit. This damn DVD/CD wasn't cheap.

NOTHING leaves the vault. Ever. Friend or not, you can look (maybe), but you can't touch!

 

That's pretty much my newly adopted policy.

Thaankfully none of my friends/family have any interest whatsoever in the music I listen to, so borrowing is never an issue.

yeah, Great White's Once Bitten Twice Shy cassette single (the one with Waysted Rock Ranger) was loaned out to a co-worker during a summer factory job I had, summer of 1990 (or maybe '89) and even though I asked many a time in the weeks leading up to me heading back to school....never saw it again.

I lend the occasional CD out to my business partner, and my wife (although she practices the art of putting CD's back in whatever case happens to be available as opposed to the right case for the right CD).

Nobody wants to borrow my stuff ... I can't think why ;)

I just remembered I also lent my copy of Dream Theater's "Octavarium" to a friend years ago. He said he lost the disc, but gave me back the case. How the hell does that even happen? Maybe I'm just out my damn mind, but the disc and the case are travelling buddies. If the disc goes in the player, the case waits patiently outside. And then why do I want the damn case if there's no disc? He said he would buy me a new one, and I believe he would've, but he was in the process of moving. So he's gone, and I still have an empty case. Every time I reorganize my CD rack I'm reminded that I need to replace it, and I never do. Such a good album. My favourite from Dream Theater.

^^^^ Don't know if this applies to what you said but last year I bought a car(used2010) and on the drive home from getting it I tried the CD player and it didn't seem to work.The Cd wouldn't go in.Finally I decided to hit the eject button and out comes a CD-Adele 21.So whoever had the car before me or one of the dealership employees left the CD in so now they're stuck with an empty case !

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.
