I opened a CD case and found an extra CD doubled up with the CD that was meant to be there. It was a regular commercially manufactured music CD, but it had no title printed on the disc. I didn’t recognize the music. So with the help of CDDB I could identified the disc. Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci – a band that I’ve never heard of.

There’s a label on the underside of my computer monitor; I can see it reflected in the CD, which is now shiny side-up on my desk. I reach under the monitor and tear the sticker off. I read the words printed across it: “Warranty void if seal broken.” Oops.

  1. I once received a cassette tape from Columbia House (dating myself here, I know) that was recorded entirely backward. Random, I know.

  2. Which cd did the mystery cd come with?

    Gorky’s Zygotic Mynchi is one of my favorite bands.

  3. I guess I wasn’t really clear that it wasn’t a new CD. It was a copy of, um, William Shatner’s The Transformed Man, a CD that I only dust off occasionally to amuse friends. Since posting I realized that a friend probably left the Gorky’s Zygotic Mynchi CD in the case when I loaned her the Shatner CD.
