Every week, Coolest-Gadgets.com holds a "coolest gadget of the week" contest.  All you have to do to enter is vote for one of the featured gadgets, and leave a comment on their contest post.  In each week's contest, a randomly selected individual wins a $50 Amazon gift certificate.  I only found out about it last Friday, so last week was my first entry into the contest drawings.  Imagine my surprise when I found out Monday that I had won the contest!

Today Al from Coolest-Gadgets sent me my Amazon certificate, and I debated what I would spend it on.  Even though I could have been practical and bought something useful (in my house, we always need diapers, etc), I figured I'd treat myself to a little something special and decided to pick up some Amazon Mp3 albums that I've had my eye on for a while.  I'm only halfway through my certificate and have already picked up some awesome albums

  • Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
  • The New Pornographers – Mass Romantic
  • Frank Black – Frank Black
  • Mike Doughty – Golden Delicious

I think I'm going to have to take a break from the buying before my ears explode from pure aural joy.

Oh, and in case you're interested, this week's contest is on.  Go try your hand at winning your own gift certificate!

Two Good Soundtracks That You’ve Probably Forgotten About

I've been going through my music collection lately and re-rating a lot of my tracks to organize better smart playlists.  In the process of doing so, I came across two soundtrack albums that I own that I really enjoy but have not heard for a while.  Listening to the entire albums again, I can wholeheartedly vouch for them as excellent and worth a listen.  You can probably pick them up for cheap, too, since they've been around for almost forever.

First up is the Gone in 60 Seconds soundtrack.  It's got a mix of music to pump you up, including the Chemical Brothers, Apollo Four Forty, BT (featuring Mike Doughty) among others.  Some of the rap songs on the album have a fair amount of vulgarity, so be warned that this is worth screening before passing along to a kid.  Overall, though, this whole album gets me pumped and is great music to drive to.

Next is the soundtrack from Resident Evil: Apocalypse (AKA that second Resident Evil flick).  This is noticeably more focused on hard rock and alternative tracks, but is equally strong in getting me psyched up.  This is the kind of stuff I used to like to listen to while warming up for a running race to get me in the uber-competitive mindset.
