Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
Mass Romantic
Frank Black
Golden Delicious

Every week, 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!

    It looks like this is only the 5th weekly contest of theirs, so I'd guess it's only been running for about a month, overall. I only found out about it when one of the people I follow on twitter sent out a link to it.

    I miss my Spoon CD. I loaned it to a friend of mine back in October and haven't gotten it back yet. That'll teach me!
