All in all, not very interesting. The biggest annoyance is that one of the Aphex discs is defective - it won't read the last track.
So far, my impression is that The Soft Pink Truth is the only real keeper here. It's fucking awesome. Matmos with a vastly improved sense of humor, basically. Wonderful sample usage, phat beats, etc. Worth every penny. The Little Miss Trinitron thing sucks beyond belief; the rest of it I haven't really heard yet. I did however watch the Chris Morris DVD with my parents, which was a lot of fun. He's got a new DVD coming out next week which Mom has ordered for me - go Mom! It's got all of the Jam episodes that aired on TV a few years back. Dad taped one on the family VCR for me, which contained the single most breathtaking thing I've seen on TV in 2003: a not to be believed interpretation of "Loving You" as performed by two very unlikely people. Wonderful stuff.
I made a lame attempt at finding Max Tundra stuff but it was a bust. I hadn't done my homework - forgot to write down the name of that recent comp with one of his tracks on it. And of course I probably wouldn't have done well with trying to get some of his vinyl home. He does have a new single out next week, which is of course gonna be fabulous. Can't wait to hear it!
