I am kinda jet laggy having come home to California (HELL YEAH!!) from Georgia to spend some time with family and friends but did want to do some blogging while on the road. By the way, yes, while I do currently live in Georgia, California will always be my home plain and simple. So anyway, I found this Pixies thing in my email box featuring a box set of sorts with a "signed autographed post card" and every time the Pixies put out a new record they always put a myriad of stuff out there with it to sweeten the pot.

A lot of bands do this and this kind of thing (whether done by the PIXIES or Radiohead or whomever) and it can feel a bit like a money grab by some. I know some people actually get kind of disgusted by it and others who are more in the collector mindset like all the options. While it can have the appearance (and quite possibly the stench) of commerce way over art I am fine with it. If you want these kind of box sets then get them, if you just purchase the records do that and, by the way, I have no problem with bands / artists making all the money they can. For most artists the span of making money is short and sell out is only a term that seems to apply to bands and such. We all sell our souls a bit in whatever job we have in order to put food on the table and enrich the lives or ourselves and our loved ones.

See what the Pixies are hocking below and here:
