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!

Psycho Killer :: Heropsychodreamer

Thank you Calliope No. 8, for letting me share this song!

I always thought Live's album Secret Samadhi got a bit of a bum rap.  After Mental Jewelery and the radio play of chart-toppers from Throwing Copper, I know a lot of folks that felt very let-down by Samadhi (although not as much as by Bush's Razorblade Suitcase after their hit Sixteen Stone).  But if you give it a chance, there are actually some really interesting/catchy songs on the album.  Here's one of my favorites…

Get Your Rock On

Nothing cheers me up quite like counting down the hours on my last day before a 5-day vacation (it starts tomorrow for me).  Except maybe some Nirvana, played on a group of ukuleles.

Flyswatter/ice water blues :: Flyswatter

I think this was one of the first Eels tracks I ever heard, and got me interested enough to buy the album it's on.  As a bonus (for The Calliope), the lyrics include the words "Ice Water, Flyswatter".

Better Go Home Now :: I Wanna Go Home

Yay, a song for the Calliope AND a cover (although you might have to listen to it to figure out who they're covering).

I Wanna Go Home
Van Morrison, Lonnie Donegan, Chris Barber

Superhero :: Superhero

One good superhero deserves another.  Check out this track from Peter Griesar, a keyboardist who played with the Dave Matthews Band in their early days, but quit the band in 1993 because he didn't want to spend his life touring around the country.  I only have a couple of tracks off his solo album Superfastgo, but they are excellent.
