One of the ways we help pay for our server, software updates, occasional live get-togethers, and the like is from the small commission we get through any orders Townspeople make through our Amazon links, including the general search portals on the right side of our page and the Amazon store links on the left side with preselected – and rarely updated – suggestions. The RTH New Recommendations list has been updated with some new box sets, here: http://astore.amazon.com/rotoha00-20?_encoding=UTF8&node=1

On a related Christmas Wish List note, feel free to use this thread to list your RTH wishes. Recently we asked for suggestions and received some good ones, including a wish for a mobile device version of the site, which we have in development.
You can also wish for certain topics to be covered. Some of us try to remind each other, for instance, of ideas that should be explored, such as a Rock’s Unfulfilled Fashion Ideas piece on bolo ties or the whole President of Rock initiative that alexmagic has been pushing for a few years. Keep these ideas cooking, please. One of these days we may get around to pulling them off! Thanks.
I like to use this opportunity to tell you what happened to me several Saturdays ago. I was hanging w/a friend of mine for the 1st time since he got back from Europe, giving him a ride back home from his job @ my local record store. So we were just chatting about music & baseball when he said that he wanted to go to the local FYE & check it out. He spent all day working @ a record store & now he wants to go to another one. Go figure.
Anyway, we go to the FYE store & we both poke around different areas. After I finished looking around, I go see my friend, who’s near the box set section. He says to me, “Joe, look at this, I can’t believe it.” In his hands was a copy of the Jellyfish Fan Club box set. What he couldn’t believe was the price that was on it. It said .25. Not $25, .25, as in 4 bits, 1/4 of a Yankee Dollar, 25 CENTS. We approached an employee to see if this was the right price & he said it was. So I ended up buying it (my friend already had a copy) for a total of $0.27 w/tax. We both looked up what it’s currently selling for & it’s many times more than $0.25.
Not too suprising. It is Jellyfish after all…
Oh, man – if that’s selling for anything decent, I’d sell it on ebay and leave the sticker on it.
