ATTN: Lovers of Books & Independent Music

So I just got some insider information that Barnes & Noble is giving 10 free music downloads with every purchase of a textbook. (purchase 3 books = 30 downloads) Ends Jan 30!

They are even offering free shipping for new textbooks + some books qualify for discounts! (up to 30% off new books & up to 90% off used books!) 

and the music you can select from to download is excellent.

Here is a list of the artists: Vampire Weekend, Neko Case, Diane Birch, Phoenix, Grizzly Bear, Gossip, Devendra Banhart, Tegan and Sara, Swell Season, Tom Waits, Alec Ounsworth, Mayer Hawthorne, Polly Scattergood, Amanda Blank, White Denim, Black Lips, Au Revoir Simone, The Raveonettes, Cage, King Khan and the Shrines, Temper Trap, White Rabbits, Cage the Elephant, Jonah Sees In Color, Metric, Avett Brothers, Wale, Chester French, Built To Spill, Fanfarlo, Brandi Carlile 

Some of these I have actually not heard of but I think I will look them up on rcrdlbl.com and check them out

Some of my favorites from the list are Phoenix, Grizzly Bear, and some select songs by Au Revoir Simone, Metric, and White Rabbits

SHOPLIFTERS PISS ME OFF.

I'll start off by saying though this post is starting off on a negative note, it will divert and end in a positive one. 

Never have I known (or wanted to know) how easy it can be to shoplift. People are devious and cunning when it comes to stealing. They think they are clever and creative but retailers already know and have figured out all of their schemes. Unfortunately, corporate retail requires sufficient proof seen by a manager to accuse. 


Sometimes it's who you expect and other times they smile innocently and make you think twice. I understand the holidays and all days currently for most people are rough and tight, but just get a grip and GET A JOB! earn your own money.

I swear I could tell you story after story of people who have known to shoplift but most of the time we can't accuse them and can't catch them.  MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL. seriously. 


DIVERTING... 
A few finds I have a crush on...
