Less Than a Dollar Glam

I'm broke, people.

The Glam mistress has got no cash. This doesn't stop me from searching for a Glam bargain now and then. I mean, I can usually scrape together a few dollars in case I happen upon a great Glam bargain.

I was in a music shop yesterday, pawing through the music books. A lot of the books were 50% off, but there wasn't anything I wanted...until I saw a Bonham book.

That's right: the music shop had Bonham's The Disregard of Timekeeping. Copyright 1989 thanks to our friends at Hal Leonard.

I grabbed the book instantly. At seven bucks, I figured I was looking at a steal. First off, you know I dig The Disregard of Timekeeping and second, vintage music books go for huge prices on eBay.

When I took my prize to the register, the man behind the counter gave me a funny look.

"Ha!" I thought. "I've owned you and this store with my great value!"

The same smirky clerk then said that since it was Saturday, all the clearance books were going for just a penny a page.

My book cost 79 cents.


I gloated the entire drive home. Glam, I love a bargain.

That's awesome Allyson. I am lucky enough to have this really great used CD near where I live..and I go to it every chance I get! I've found so many obscure and rare CD's there...

Sometimes you can find great stuff at FYE even...the one near my house has a bin of CDs that are 25 cent each...I've actually found great stuff in there from time to time...

timekeeping was a really good album, but holy shmoly did that band stink live! My friends and I saw them at the Airport Music Hall in Allentown, PA in '89 or '90 and they were just terrible.
