To celebrate the release of Stone Temple Pilot’s self-titled sixth album on Tuesday, May 25, I hereby offer their first five albums, free. Simply contact me with your mailing address and preferred album, and I’ll ship it to you. Albums available: Core, Purple
, Tiny Music…, No. 4, and Shangri-La Dee Da.
Shangri-La Dee Da is gone. Also, I forgot to mention, but Scott Weiland’s 1998 solo album 12 Bar Blues is also available.
Tiny Music… is gone!
We just wanted to say thanks. Xander has been listening to the CD in the car (which we have spent far too much time in of late! ) It keeps me awake while I sleep – I can sleep through anything, it seems.
No problem; glad you’re enjoying it. BTW, how can it keep you awake while you sleep? That sounds paradoxical.
I meant it keeps him awake while I sleep. :-D
I’m not sure you used paradoxical correctly there – now I’m going to have ask Xander and hear a 10 minute lecture on its’ proper usage. *sighs* Being married to a former English teacher has its’ pros and cons.
I was using “paradoxical” in the sense of the situation seeming contradictory. But at the same time, I was holding out that there may be some truth to the matter: perhaps the music keeps you in a semi-conscious state while you sleep.
Also. the possessive “its” doesn’t get an apostrophe. :-)
When it comes to grammar, I don’t do well. Or spelling for that matter. It’s part of the ADHD thing, I think – I think and type far too quickly. My blog is a perfect example of that. (And it doesn’t help, either, that my professors overlook my mistakes. They’re used to worse ones it seems and don’t call me enough on it – I appreciate you doing so.)
I talked to Xander about the usage of paradoxical. You used it correctly. I also learned that it is possible to be both awake and asleep at the same time – something with insomnia. I have actually been guilty of holding entire conversations while asleep, actually – mostly as a teen.
I think the reason it bothered me is because it broke the one of the cardinal rules for writing: Never using a twenty-five cent word when a penny word will do. My professors are more apt to call me on this than on grammatical errors, oddly enough.
