I watch a ton of stuff on eBay...a lot of which, I don't really intend to bid on. I'll add a record to the watch list just to see what happens with the auction...holding out a little bit of hope that maybe I'll be the only one watching it, and I'll be lucky enough to score it for cheap. Most often times it doesn't work out like that, but every once in a while the stars will all align, and things will fall in my favor.
Checking popsike, it looks as though the first Beowulf album goes for $50 to $80. While I like the album, I don't know if I $80 like it. Still, I'd been listening to the album non-stop for a couple of weeks, so I figured that I'd keep an eye on a recent auction. Even though I'm trying to limit my record spending these days, there was no way I was going to walk away from this $20 win.
