$5 MP3 Album Deal: Patton Oswalt’s ‘Werewolves and Lollipops’

Werewolves and Lollipops

In the summer of 2004 Patton Oswalt‘s career in comedy went supernova almost overnight when his first stand-up CD Feelin’ Kinda Patton was released. In that instant he evolved from a moderately well-known comedian and King of Queens co-star to one of the universe’s funniest and imaginative personalities. Three years after the release of his first CD, Oswalt made a blazing return to record stores with his brilliantly titled follow-up album Werewolves and Lollipops; its unheralded genius, coupled with the successful theatrical release that summer of the Pixar animated delight Ratatouille, confirmed Oswalt as a force to be reckoned with in the world of comedy.

This month, Patton Oswalt’s epic second comedy album is on sale at Amazon as part of their monthly $5 MP3 deal. You can also check out more of these deals at the main sale page and order Werewolves and Lollipops on CD here.

Yes, yes, yes, bring the metal \m/\m/

Today’s MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon is Love At First Sting by The Scorpions for only $1.99.

For those of you who are not familiar with this German metal outfit, allow me to tell you that yes, yes are, and Love At First Sting is the album that you’d know them from, thanks to their mega-hit “Rock You Like a Hurricane.” Yup, it’s on this album, so if you want that song, this is the way to go.

Released in 1984, the entire album is filled with great tunes like “Big City Nights,” “Bad Boys Running Wild,” and the power ballad “Still Loving You.” The must-have “Still Loving You” and “Rock You Like a Hurricane” are two bucks on their own right there, which makes this deal definitely worth it.

Deal: Six Feet Under – The Complete Series DVD Set For $60

In this last day of Amazon’s week of HBO DVD deals, today’s Gold Box spotlight item is Six Feet Under – The Complete Series Gift Set for $59.99 (down 67% off the original price of $179.90).

The set 25-disc set contains all five seasons of the Alan Ball heavy dramatic series, plus two bonus soundtracks, audio commentary, deleted scenes, episode previews and recaps, and several featurettes (you might recognize creator Ball’s name now for his latest HBO offering True Blood). As far as packaging goes, this one’s genius: the top of the box looks like a stone grave marker with the show’s name and years of running (2001-2005) surrounded by grass, with the rest of the box made to look like dirt. The set also comes with an exclusive illustrated booklet with character obituaries and memories from the show’s creators.

Math time: At a total of $59.99, that works out to just under $12 per season, which usually run at nearly $40 each, so this is a super savings.

For those of you not familiar with the show, it’s main selling point right now might be that it starred Michael C. Hall, known now for playing the serial killer who offs serial killers on Showtime’s Dexter. In Six Feet Under, after their father dies, two brothers must help their meek mother Ruth (Frances Conroy) by running the family business — a funeral home. Hall’s character David, who’s in the closet, is actually the good son, while prodigal son Nate (Peter Krause) returns home reluctantly to serve as co-director of the funeral home.

Deal: Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Seasons 1-6 For $83

DVDsContinuing their week of HBO deals, today’s Gold Box spotlight deal at Amazon is Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Seasons 1-6 for $82.99 (down 65% from $238.98).

If you do the math (which I typically do), you’ll that that works out to less than $14 per season as opposed to the nearly $40 list price — even with Amazon’s usual discount, each season averages around $30. Therefore, this is a huge savings and definitely worth getting if you’re a fan of the series.

For those of you not familiar with this half-hour HBO series, it stars Larry David, who co-created Seinfeld and was the basis for the George Costanza character. In Curb, David plays himself, which if you thought Costanza was outrageous, you should see the “real” Larry David. Most episodes are packed with famous actors, also playing themselves, and typically, Larry David will always put his foot in his mouth and do something extremely inappropriate. It’s funny as hell, but also so cringe-inducing, as you can’t believe some of the things he does. What makes this show really stand out is the fact that the episodes are not scripted. Each episode has a storyline, but then the actors improvise their dialogue, which is what makes the situations they’re in seem all the more real.

Comedians Cheryl Hines and Jeff Garlin (Wall-E) are in character as David’s wife and best friend, respectively, while frequent reoccurring guest stars are Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, and Wanda Sykes (all as themselves).

Sex PistolsThe spotlight MP3 deal of the week at Amazon is the classic Sex Pistols album Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols for only $1.99! This would definitely top my list of perfect albums ever made. If you don’t already own this album, seriously, YOU MUST GET THIS. C’mon, you get 12 awesome songs for under two bucks, that’s insane! If you think you don’t know the Sex Pistols, you’re probably wrong. “God Save The Queen,” ever heard of it? No? THEN BUY THIS ALBUM FOR $1.99! Seriously, not one bad song. I own this album in every format already, but for this price, I swear I’d buy it again.

Here’s some other notable MP3 albums available now for $5 and under:

Alice Cooper Goes To Hell ($4.97): Hailed as “one of the best albums ever made” by Dave3 of Geeks of Doom. Long before Jason went below, shock rocker Alice Cooper made the journey underworld with this classic 1976 sequel to the far more recognized Welcome To My Nightmare.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Once More With Feeling ($5): I’m sure very fan of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series already owns this soundtrack to the infamous musical episode (#107), but for those of you still working your way through that tremendous Complete Series DVD boxset, trust me when you hit this episode in Season 6, you’re gonna want this album – so snag it now for only five bucks.

Slumdog Millionaire Music From The Motion Picture ($5): This indie darling could just be the next Oscar-winning film come February and its soundtrack has been getting tons of praise as well. The entire album is up for an Academy Award for Best Original Score, while two of its songs were nominated for Best Original Song.

Dokken Alone Again & Other Hits ($4.97): If you dig hair metal contenders Dokken back in the 1980s, then this is a great deal on their greatest hits. For under five bucks, you get some great tunes like “Alone Again,” “In My Dreams,” and “Breaking The Chains,” but more importantly, it comes with “Dream Warriors,” the title track from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors! [“… don’t wanna dream no more!”]. Yes, yes, yes, a must-have, for sure.
