Today is the big day! The U.S. release of AC/DC’s new record…..BLACK ICE! I went out to Wal-Mart right after I dropped my daughter off at school, by 8:30 it was mine! There was a ton of AC/DC product and promotion all over the store and the new album was well-stocked, as was the rest of the band’s catalogue…..they had EVERY album. That doesn’t usually happen in a Wal-Mart.
AC/DC – Black Ice (2008) – $11.88: Can’t beat the sale price but it’s Wal-Mart…..the most evil of big corporations! I’m in a Union (UFCW – United Food and Commercial Workers) and Wal-Mart is something I stand against. I don’t shop there at all but, like the new releases from The Eagles, REO Speedwagon and Journey, it’s the only store in town to buy BLACK ICE! Anyway, I wanted the red lettered cover but I only saw the silver and yellow….. I grabbed the silver.
AC/DC – No Bull (The Director’s Cut) DVD – $10: I passed on this DVD earlier in September because it’s a Wal-Mart exclusive and because I wanted to compare the original release to this re-release. When I grabbed the BLACK ICE disc, I couldn’t help noticing the price point for this DVD, 10 bucks is a great price, too good to pass up. It’s been a tough year for music DVDs, I’ve only bought a few this year so I figured I would treat myself.
