Well, I failed my test :/ *SIGGGHHHHH*! It was mostly for stupid stuff like looking in my rear view mirror, signaling, all that jazz. Soooo, I'm going back today (the 2nd) at 10:30 AM to give it another go. Let's hope I nail it this time and finally get my license after three long years of waiting.

Love to you all goodnight/morning

Hello everyone!

I'm writing a quick note today to ask you all to wish me luck as I take my driver's test in a little while. I'm nervous but also super excited.

I'll post how I do when I get back!

A Tribute To Everybody's Records
Wool Hat &lt;3

Hey all :) How's everyone's summer going? Mine is extreamly hot, I tried to tan today and I about fried myself. Going to give it another go tomorrow. Anyway, onto the subject line:

A friend of mine had told me about Everybody's Records and I was a bit appriensive. I mean in my defense just the name of the store didn't indicate much happening there... but I was way wrong.

My mom (my vinyl hunting buddy) and I found the place with no trouble, unlike our first trip to Shake It Records (now that's a name!) which took about an hour and was only supposed to take 15 minutes, and to make matters worse we didn't find a thing! Anyway, we found Everybody's and I began to warm up to the place already because it looked like Shake It, smilar surroundings and everything.

      

So we go in and I immedatley detect the smell of incense, AWESOME! hehe. We locate the records and I head to back wall where the alphabetical records are since usually that's where you find the Monkees. I spotted some Monkees and I pulled them out they just kept coming. I was having a mini heart attack as I finally ended up wtih five Monkees records all at about three dollars each, the most I had ever found in a store at one time. Already Everybody's was owning Shake It where I had only found one Monkees record in the several times had been there.

I showed my mom what I had found and she also was having a heart attack. I decided to just buy all the records becasue I figured hey when will I find this ever again? I wandered over to the Beatles records and pulled out an Abbey Road and Yellow Submarine, both very nice copies with next to no damage on them. Mom had found another Beatles section (common in record stores around here) and had scoured a Sgt. Peppers! I had walked into that store saying to her "I hope they have Sgt. Peppers but they probably won't." Ha! I was wrong again! Anyway, we walked up to the front and asked the guys if they had any Michael Nesmith stuff and if so where we could find it. They sent us back to where we had found the Monkees and stuff and mom pulled out a Nez album from between two records with 'New' in the title. I was completely giddy by this point.

When all was said and done I ended up with nine records all for around sixty-five bucks, pretty good really.

When I got home I was giving all my new records a closer look and came to find Sgt. Peppers still had the Lonley Hearts Club cut out sheet completely intact:



I'm trying to resist cutting it out ! (I want that mustache) People have threatened me about it 0_O

Here's what I came home with that day:

- Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones LTD. ~ The Monkees
- The Monkees Greatest Hits (The one where Peter is leaning over Micheal and you can see just a little bit of his back *swoon*) ~ The Monkees
- The Monkees Greatest Hits (Looks like one from a radio station, it's sleeve is very orange, different tracks from the above one) ~ The Monkees
- Then & Now... The Best of the Monkees ~ The Monkees
- Monkee Business (Kind of a fill in the blank album, includes an Itailian version of the Monkees Theme) ~ The Monkees
- From A Radio Engine To The Proton Wing (Anyone who can explain that title to me will be my BFFL) - Michael Nesmith
- Abbey Road ~ The Beatles
- Yellow Submarine ~ The Beatles
- Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band ~ The Beatles

So a big thank you to Everybody's records for giving me everything my collection lacked and then some. I believe this record store, unlike Shake It, is kind of a hidden gem of Cincinnati, Ohio. I don't think a lot of people know it's there offically making it my favorite record store. When you visit this place expect to find an atmosphere you would feel comfortable spending a few hours in just slowly browsing everything they have to offer. It is truely one of a kind.

Peace, Love, Phantom :)

P.S. If any of you ever visit the Cincinnati, Ohio, Northern Kentucky area let me know and I can give you directions to both stores should you want to pay them a visit! Plus a lot of good local places to eat! Who doesn't love food?!

Hello

Hi all, I've been pretty MIA these few months, school has been kicking my butt and sucking up all my time. However, school is out for the summer!! So I'll be posting more regularly. Hopefully I'll be able to make my LJ more interesting with the summer goings on.

What are all of you going to be up to this summer? I'll be going to my cousin's wedding in July, DC in August, Biltmore at the end of May for my mom's birthday and I'm sure a few camping trips will be sprinkled throughtout in our fabulous fith wheel camper. I probably won't be babysitting again this summer but who knows. I hope to babysit but it might not work out.

Anyway, I hope all is well with everyone :)

BIG News!

Hey everybody, I have some awesome news! Today I got my first my car... I mean truck! Anyway, I've been waiting for this for about 3 weeks now. I am totally in love with it. It is a 2004 F.150 with black leather interior, a sun roof, a super cap (mean a front seat + full back seat),  and a 4x4 bed. It also has heated front seats, a CD and cassette player and a really deep center consol. It's a pretty awesome truck:


Well, that's all I wanted to say! I hope you all are having a wonderful day/night.

What's up?!? :)

Hey all, well how have you been? Done anything wickedly awesome lately?? I went back to school on Tuesday, just one class this semester, History 102. It's been good so far, I had a sub though Tuesday and today, regular professor is supposed be back next week. No class on Tuesday! It's testing day for seniors, so I get a really short week next week and a really long weekend this week.

I'm just watching Say Yes To The Dress right now. I love this show, and I am totally getting my wedding dress at Kleinfeld, provided there is a guy out there who it crazy enough to marry me heehee ;) But I gotta say some of the people the brides bring with them to the appointment drive me insane. It's like, why does it matter if you don't like a dress the bride is totally in love with? You don't have to wear it after all! Sheesh....

Anyway, I ordered 2 Monkees LP's and 1 Michael LP from ebay, they should be here next week sometime I think. I will post pictures when they arrive :)

Have a nice night/day everybody!

Hello my friends! Weeeell, it's snowing here like crazy! The most we're supposed to get it about 6inches. Unfortunately my friend cannot go play in it at this time, so I'm way bored, but oh well. Hopefully she'll get another snowday tomorrow and maybe we can play then :) I don't go back to college until the 12th. But, if this weather keeps up, who knows.

Anyway, my mom and I went record perusing a little today, we tried Goodwill but the only Monkees LP they had there was one I already have. Sooo, we're checking Half Price Books on Monday, and going back to Shake It Records. Hopefully we'll have more luck then.

I hope you all are doing well and keeping warm if it's cold where you are!

Mucho Amore, Phantom :)

I wish...
