Today I have for you the first establishment of Cat’s CD Commentary, a series where I review different CDs and Vinyl for your viewing pleasure.
For the first CD(s) of this series, I present to you……
The original and super rare Regional At Best and Self-Titled CDs from Twenty One Pilots!
I’ve been listening to Twenty One Pilots for a little over 5 years (nearing 6), and I vividly remember when these albums dropped, and how they changed my perspective on life and will to live in so many ways.
And I know there’s a question you’re all asking……
“Cat, how did you get the CDs?”
Well, it all started about a month ago (aka late March) when I was actually on eBay bidding for the RAB CD, and sadly lost the bidding by $1.50.
I know, $1.50.
However, the bidding ended at $208.00, and there was no way I was paying that much, so I dropped it and hoped I would find another for a lower price.
A few days later, I received an email via eBay from the seller, saying the winning bidder did not pay for the CD, therefore I was able to buy it, hence I was the second-highest bidder.
We negotiated a few prices, and settled at $125.00.
Then, the seller threw in the Self-Titled CD for $125.00 as well, bringing me at a grand total of $250.00+free shipping.
Yes, that is expensive, but normally RAB and S-T CDs are roughly $1,000 to $2,000, which is ridiculously expensive, thus making $250 for both CDs a miracle.
