The year was 2001 and for some reason I really liked the recently released single by Saliva, "Click Click Boom." I went to my local mall to the newly re-branded f.y.e. (formerly The Wall) and picked up a copy of Saliva's second album, Every Six Seconds, which contained the single. We did have a PC in 2001 but only 28.8k dialup so I had to farm out any song downloading to friends or even worse, my second cousin (who's my mom's first cousin and actually my parents' age, so asking for any popular song or song by a vulgar/awful band would get lots of snide remarks and/or convenient "I couldn't find it on limewire" replies).
Anyway I got home with it and realized I didn't like any songs on the album except for Click Click Boom and quickly realized that hearing it any more often than on watching MTV at my grandma's house after school (we didn't and still don't have cable and instead had a giant 15' satillete dish, so the only channels we got were CBS, NBC, ABC, public access via antenna and you could watch HBO and Skinemax if it wasn't cloudy or windy and if hornets weren't living in the dish during the winter) was too much and became disgusted I wasted my hard earned lawn mowing/hay baling money on it. Also, one day my mom saw it lying somewhere, and of course it has that god-awful cover of a girl with extremely pink lips and a gaping maw wearing a dog collar Blingee style "SALIVA" necklace and she gave me a bunch of shit about it but I told her I was going to go trade it in anyway.
I took it and 3-4 other CDs back to f.y.e. to trade in for store credit and cleverly hid Every Six Seconds in the middle so I could walk away/pretend that I wasn't an idiot who bought that album and put my head down and browsed the counter-candy. However, the cashier had laid all the CDs out like a deck of cards to announce their trade in amounts and definitely lingered on the Saliva disk. I think I spent my store credit on "God Hates Us All" by Slayer the week it came out so I really did make a series of bad decisions in regards to ever liking new and popular things in 2001.
