    are supposed to have expired yesterday. So I ran over there to get rid of my 2 x $24.99 cards.

    I tried to blow them both on one 3 disc set, but those rat bastards wouldn't let me do that "it's not allowed" (even tho they've done it for me before :()

    So - separate topic....

    I never shop at HMV anymore and I have no idea what's a good mix cd to buy? I like a little bit of everything, but have no idea where to look for a solid mixed compilation cd set.

    Any ideas? h.e.l.p. :)

    Anyone heard of ursula 2000, or know where I could find that? I'd love to get that as a gift for a friend :)

    NO, you should totally go in, and I'm SURE they'll honour it for the next few days.

    You were out of the country on vacation for the past month. Remember? (nudge nudge, wink wink)

  7. HMV has fallen the fuck off and I've noticed a serious drop in the level of anonymous service, and diligence on getting new releases out asap. I'm doing less and less shopping there, as now I can find all kinds of stuff that I can't in the stores online. If you want to be the best, you try your best, even when your competition is dwindling.

    From the Ministry of sorry to the HMV employees on the board. Your managers just won't fucking listen.

    I totally agree, I won't be shopping there anymore. The only reason I ever bought anything there in the 1st place was for the stamps.

    Cheaper and larger selection to just buy online.
  9. I'm talking about pirating. The new five finger discount.

    Any ideas on a good cd's for my $24.99 card guys?
    (i'm brain dead today and need help - it's obvious :()
  11. I'd recommend the new deepsky album, if you like Hybrid.

    Depends on what you're looking for...

    I'm actually looking for something very chill, but i'll check it out !

    Merci buckets james! :)
  13. what kind of chill? Trip hop? Loungy?

    Chill -> try Zero 7. Mellow album, or if you can find it at the 50 Bloor st.

    I'd recommend Euphoria Deep and Chilled mixed by Solar Stone. One of the best mixed chill cd's I've heard.

    chill like loungy, but anything chill would be nice for a change!

    (again, james thanks - is it ok if I mail you for more questions?)

    try everything but the girl....almost all of their stuff is pretty chilled, and a really good variety too, from deep house, to atmospheric drun n bass, to the occassional slow guitar ballads....

    fuck, i didnt manage to get to hmv this past week to buy one last cd to fill up my card :(

    think they'll still let me get it filled out and use the 24$s this weekend still!? :confused:

  17. Please feel free. Highsteppa@sympatico.ca

    ...just so you know...

    ..the reason why HMV sucks now is that since they feel they no longer have any real competition they are getting rid of things like club cards and such as well as limiting their once farily diverse selection...they do it because they can...

    ...straight from one of my best friends who works at the Canadian head office....
  19. I can't help but wonder if HMV will bring them back if Virgin tries to horn into the canadian market.

    From the Ministry of should be interesting if they do.
