Day 61: My name is Tim. And I have a problem.

My name is Tim. And I have a problem.

My problem is ... I can't resist buying cheap music.

My mother-in-law took the kids to lunch and a movie today which left me with a few hours to myself. I decided to hit up the library sale and Goodwill and maybe pick up a few new albums to listen to. Ninety minutes and sixteen CDs later, I was on my way home.

Quite a variety, really. Definitely enough to satisfy my craving for a bit.

Some decent hip-hop (Lecrae), a few from college that I couldn't pass up for a buck (Adema, Mr. Opporknockity), a few I used to have and over time have come to regret getting rid of (John Mellencamp, Stone Temple Pilots), one that I already owned but couldn't pass up knowing I'd easily find a home for it (Fresh Prince), a few that I couldn't leave behind even though they will probably see little to no action in my music-playing rotation (Spice Girls, Poi Dog Pondering, Jars of Clay).

My point here is this: I would never pay full price for any of these CDs. In fact, I wouldn't even play a quarter of the full price for any of them. But when I see stuff like this for a buck each...I'm a sucker.

But I'm not alone though. The Fresh Prince CD is already spoken for.

The Summer of Tim continues...
