What Was Your Last Purchase?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Tried to put text with the hat I posted on the previous page but I think I screwed it up. At any rate I got this hat made in the States and shipped to me in Canada.

Bought dog shampoo cause no one else was getting around to it (like someone who actually drives and could get it no problem in this 110f+ weather). Walked my ass about a mile to the pet store to get it so that was unpleasant.

I haven't made a purchase in a while, but my wife bought us tickets to see this year's BattleBots tournament in Las Vegas this morning. Can't wait, and I'm hoping I'm not in the smegging hospital while it's going on!

I bought Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag yesterday on the Ubisoft Store sale for $6.60.  Definitely one of the best (if not the best) games of the series.

Just bought a small repair kit for my Switch Joy-Cons as they have drift. They should arrive in the next few days.

Last week, my order of Gojira's newest album came in. I ordered with only hearing one song from the band, ever. I liked it so much that the next day or two, I ordered three more of their albums. Today two of them arrived. I gave From Mars to Sirius a listen and holy carp, I wasn't ready for that. Fucking flying whales.

 

Was a good purchase. Better than the thought of ordering some cider to enjoy.

I did something really shortsighted and spent way too much money on records while visiting a friend in Georgia.

Things I got new: Nightfly - Donald Fagen, Smooth Noodle Maps - DEVO, Blue Velvet Soundtrack - Angelo Badalamenti

Things I got used: Gaucho - Steely Dan, Flag - Yello, I Robot - The Alan Parsons Project, Primitive Love - Miami Sound Machine


And a very thick stack of trash from the wall of bargain bins including one of the funniest records I've bought. It sounds like music from the worst licensed SNES game you've never played and I implore you to take a listen.

 

 

When we got back to the friend's apartment we were demoing everything we bought and when we put this on the turntable we were astounded. One of the best $1 purchases of my life.

The stock earpads that came with my Corsair HS50 were wearing out, so I bought a new pair

 

Two problems occurred:

Despite being told it would arrive earlier than expected, there was carrier delay on the day it was to be delivered because it was sent to the WRONG CARRIER FACILITY. Thankfully, it arrived today without issues.

The second problem was I had issues getting the stock earpads' plastic attachments to fit onto my headphones with the new pads on them. I had to use scotch tape just to secure them so they wouldn't fall off. And the YouTube tutorials didn't do matters either :(

Last thing I bought was a small bag of Piattos Chips, Sour Cream & Onion flavor at a sari-sari store (basically a convenience store in the neighborhood). Costs about 15 pesos and tastes pretty good.

My last purchase was a Mossberg 590 shotgun.  12-gauge, chambered for 2-3/4" and 3" shells, 6+1 capacity.

 

Why, you ask?  I'm going on vacation in bear country.

Tell me about it! It's gotten so ridiculous over the years, I remember paying around forty dollars for a renewal here in Florida about 12-14 years ago. Now I pay $130.

I’m gonna assume you also didn’t know there was an X-Men Quake mission pack?
