The ammo case is from my Army days, the bumper stickers date it generally, but the contents nail down the era before I started purchasing cds. The pictures I posted yesterday and these were taken during a break from cleaning the house and the culling of items for Goodwill. I did throw out some broken tapes but still could not bring myself to get rid of all of them play them much. Some of them I can't even remember buying. Just who exactly where The Lime Spiders? Why did I have some of those soundtracks? If you look closely in the top right hand corner of the ammo box you will notice the Korean edition for Streets of Fire. The rarity of this is being that is not a bootleg copy but an official commerical release.
Sunday I am off to New Mexico for work and posting may be limited during the first hell week of the project until things settle into a routine. I have never been to Albuquerque so I am looking forward to attempting to see some of it. I am bringing along about two months worth of The New Yorker to catch up on and a copy of The Minsitry of Special Cases by Nathan Englander about Jews in Argentina during The Dirty War period of late 1970's. Should be good. I will have to do a post about my trip to Buenos Aires sometime.
