This thursday I was browsing the streets of zagreb, searching for a new hat, since the sun is burning rapidly and I'm not in to all that glasses stuff. Su I see a record store, they sell cd-s there. I haven't been on this web site for a year now and I didn't know what was going on with the new cd and all. As I was getting in I saw some guys carying boxes inside. I get in the store and asked the same thing I always ask when I go to the cd store :"el imate kakove cedeje od offspringa, one stare albume" (do you have any cd-s of offspring, the old albums),the woman ofcourse laughed at my accent, as always, since the only two original albums I dont have are "the offspring" and "ignition" I always look for them, which I decided to order from this site next month when I get enough money for some other stuff. the girls (which was besides the laughter very nice) says :"NO, just the new album"... And I think.. well fuck, I already have the greatest hits, but my subcontious asks "And wich album is that"...and she opens up one box... pulls out "the new holly one" and inserts it to my hands.....I allmost had a heart attack, it was faith, I HAVE TO HAVE THIS, .... After tventy-second-stare at the covers of the cd the pleasant lady asks if I was gonna buy it for 135kn,(18.5€ or 28$). I only had 117kn, since I spent all the money on alcohol for Euro Turkey-Croatia...which we lost...well I went outside, ran to the Jelachich square, pulled out 15kn from the fountain and ran back to the store. beged for a 132kn price, got the cd, ran to the barracks and spent the next five hours drinking the Turkey-Croatia alcohol, eating bread, cheese, tartar, hren, kviki saltis, milk earl gray,( I don't eat meat) and listening to the OFF. I waisted all my students-eating money,I don't know what I'm gonna eat the next two weeks, since I don't have any money for food, but I know what I'm gonna listen....

this kid is gonna go far

LOL

That's a funny story right there.

Specially enjoyed the fountain bit.

Well done. Although i must add that it is a sin to be that far off from the band latest news.

I'd like to add that I've geen listening to Offspring since the 3rd grade of first school, I was 8 years old at the time,. The song "pretty fly for a white guy" drew me to them, I was watching Cartoon Network, and there was a comercial anouncing the "Ed, Edd and Eddy" cartoon, and the song was in the background, I swithed to MTV, saw the video and went nutz. so that's why I had to have the cd, we have a great history together , and mostly unfortunately to my knowledge, they've had only one concert in Croatia(I might be wrong on this one), I was too young to go, I hope they'd come again here, maybe I'll go to Hungary, thank you for the posts

I remember that commercial! I loved it to death, because Offspring was my new favorite band that time and Ed, Edd n Eddy was my favorite cartoon that time, so I went really nuts when I saw it combined!

Great story btw. Buy some cheap vietnamese instant soups.

Heh:) That's a nice story;) and for me the night of 21st-22n was the best night ever, 'cause I bought "the Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace" album and Russia made it to the semi-finals:)))

And I'm really sorry for Croatia... I hoped they would win the Euro if Russians wouldn't, and they really helped us when they won England:)
