Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts and Twiztid's Freek Show

After Louis and I ate in Chinatown, before I left the city for the day, we decided to walk to the Avenue of Arts in Philadelphia. I wanted to go to FYE to see if they had any Dark Lotus CDs. It wasn't a long walk and Louis commented that it looked like City Hall was finally opened - the construction looked to be done. The last time I was on the Avenue of the Arts was June 2013 and City Hall was still under construction.

We arrived to FYE in no time. The FYE in King of Prussia closed about six years ago, so I love whenever I come across an FYE. FYE isn't a Tower Records, but they usually have a good selection (Tower Records declared Chapter 13 bankruptcy in 2006 and is no longer). We were surprised that they rearranged the store: the DVDs were now downstairs and the CDs were upstairs with the records. I asked the girl that works there if they would have Dark Lotus, which they are composed of Insane Clown Posse and Twiztid. She replied, "We should. We have ICP!" I was dumb and asked if they were under rap and she said yes (sometimes Twiztid could go either way). They had one Dark Lotus CD, but then I saw they had a bunch of Twiztid CDs. I copied Freek Show in 2004, but the copy is starting to warp and doesn't play fully. I really wanted Cryptic Collection 4 as well, but I knew I could only afford 1 and bought Freek Show. We spent a good 30 minutes there looking at Psychopathic and metal CDs, then ironically children's movies. :D

Before I caught the bus home, we stopped at this one theatre that has a bronze statue out. In 2007, I had a picture taken with this statue - I said to Louis that we must get pictures!





I then caught the bus home. I didn't bring my CD player that day, but after I arrived home, I opened the CD and listened to it.










These are my favorite songs:

It was so nice listening to a clear CD again. I've been listening to Freek Show nonstop all week!

  1. Glad you had a good time and bought some new music. I think it's a shame that nearly all of the music stores have closed down. :(

    1. Yes, I love buying CDs. It makes me sad too because the last time I was in Best Buy in October 2013 to buy my other Twiztid CDs, Best Buy has really cut back on music as well... it's most DVDs and electronics. I usually have to buy on Amazon. Or there's one in West Chester I loved... family owned too... but you know...

  2. Was wondering if the store you bought this from had anymore with the sticker on the front

    1. shags2dope50187, FYE should still have that album with the sticker on the front. I'm sure if you ordered it online as well you'd get it as well.

  3. I have tried and every copy I have ordered comes without the sticker, i have a bunch of dark lotus and twiztid and would gladly trade if there was anyway you could get another copy of it

    1. Next time I'm in Philadelphia, I'll look for you. If you want, you can e-mail me (nose.pierced.beauty89@gmail.com), I can get your address, and when I'm in Philadelphia - if they have the CD, I can get it for you.
