Pain and Pleasure
Posted by Sam at 9:02 PM

Today is a very special day. Very special indeed. On this very special day, I brought something very special into my home. And, I've been feeling very... what's the word... special, ever since. (Do you hate me yet?)

At Cutler's Records in New Haven, Connecticut, I picked up my very own copy of Opeth's latest masterpiece, Ghost Reveries.

My fingers trembled as I held it in my hands. How long have I been waiting for this? It feels like years... but it's only been a matter of months. With the outer plastic removed the only thing keeping me from heaven on earth is my own masochistic need to savor every last moment of excruciating pain. It will all be over soon. Pleasure cannot be understood unless one knows pain. And then, as the pressure mounts, I guide the CD into the side of my Powerbook. iTunes launches. It takes hours. Looking up track names? No... just... play...

And then it plays.

And I swear it was god herself, speaking to me from the heavens. But it was not god. No. It was better. It was Opeth.

More to follow...

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
