    I'm in the 'this set was meant for diehards' camp. This isn't The Fragile or Broken or TDS.... or MCIS or a smaller bands debut album.... it's a collection of instrumentals, alternative takes, demos and b-sides. For that reason, from a business perspective, I get why it's $80, but also see why an objective observer would see this as overpriced. TR has always put a price on exclusivity and has never had a problem with charging out the wazoo for the 'full' package (Ghosts Deluxe, TGWTDT, Cargo In The Blood). Also, if $80 gets him the cash he needs to tour and make more music (assuming a chunk of the other sales go to the labels), then it's a huge thumbs up from me.

    I have to say I'm surprised by the number of VC dudes who apparently go to Cracker Barrel somewhat regularly. CB does not party.

    What's your White Whale record?

    My angsty teenage self skipped buying this when it came out. I was pissed off that my favorite band put a record out on a major and "sold out". Years later I came to my senses and realized this is an awesome record. It's been a white whale of mine every since. Finally grabbed a copy of this for a decent price.

    That's the most Portland place someone has ever seen records for sale. It's like if someone tidied up a Job Lots. It's also where I think "Live Love Laugh" signs are born.

    Watched the original Funny Games the other day. Not exactly horror, but I think it still counts. God damn some of the long takes are excruciating. I hadn't seen the original when I saw the remake in theaters like 10 years ago. The title card smash with Naked City kicking in is one of my favorite things ever. I remember being in the theater like "What the fuck...is that Naked City? Holy shit." I know the director has said a lot about his intentions, but it still feels like a very self aware/post modern horror flick. The characters make the obviously worst choice at every step. My girlfriend and I have both seen it multiple times (both versions) and we were still practically yelling at the screen.

    AMAZON U.S. Vinyl Deals & More Thread

    I got it a couple weeks ago. It's the Atlantic/Parlophone pressing. It's not the Capitol if that's what your worried about.

    Haven't listened to mine in a while but I don't think it was bad. It's definitely a little long for one disc, but I don't recall having any complaints. $9 is a fair gamble with customer service as a backup.

    Weird, picked up a copy for 49.99 CAD up here (Rotate This had it for 44.99 but when I saw it in SB I didn't want to risk it...) but both had Made In EU on the barcode. Guess we got the UK version?

    Update things have been getting a little better, got my taper dosage so I can stop cutting the pills which effects how you metabolise it. Even worked about 5 hours yesterday and got caught up the records have been piling up back there. Planning on trying to work more today and tomorrow, then my friend will be here for a few days and I can have a little mini-vacation. I think things will be ok, work has been really understanding and flexible

    If we're comparing the MCIS reissue to Deviations, there's no comparison. $80, 4xLP, but MCIS HAS 2 huge 12x12 booklets, LPs in poly lined paper sleeves inside printed sleeves, all housed in a slip case. Or, an oversized gatefold with 2 LPs in each side and a one sided insert. I'd be willing to bet royalties had a hand in Deviation's price tag though.

    SRC is by far the worst customer service experience I've had in many years. There are 4 employees (online and both retail stores combined) including the manager (owner?) who is never there but controls everything the people who are there do. The customer service number is a joke. We got someone to contact us by calling the Canadian retail location and sending messages Morse code. They had sent me a damaged item, made me send them different photos twice. The lone online customer service worker is also the one employee at the US store and took days to answer each email. When they decided they would bless me with a replacement, the album was out of stock but they didn't ask or offer credit or a refund, they just said it would ship as soon as they got more with no estimate of when. I asked for a refund. Then she started answering emails very quickly! We already shipped your replacement, when all they had done was made a label. Two days later a package actually shipped, "Oh look we just got one copy in!" Wait, I thought the story was you already shipped it? Funny how it was the same day my returned copy made it there (seriously). Sometime during the lying about shipping, I went ahead and filed a PayPal claim WHICH I LOST because the manager lied in his reply to the claim and used the original tracking number to prove they had shipped me something and paypal hadn't connected the emails I forwarded them with the claim. Then I had to appeal the ruling while the customer service is still telling me that this is a misunderstanding and she'll talk to her manager about a refund. Finally, I won the appeal and I will NEVER deal with them again. This took a month and a half BTW. If I want an exclusive they have, I'll get it second hand, even if I end up paying more. It's worth it not to deal with them and to not give them any profit.

    Literally the direct response to that post, right below it. Does this confirm that you don't actually read threads before shitposting in them? I feel like it may.

    At least his style of advertisement is finally relevant to a release he's putting out. It was bound to happen.

    Oddest places you've seen records for sale.

    I don't think it's weird to see records in a record store :/ ...maybe a weird place to see a record store but not a weird place to see record.

    It's the most interesting post in this whole thread, so of course someone has to whine about it.

    I remember reading about this a couple of years ago, the guy literally runs it from his back garden in a residential street in Peterborough. It is claimed to be the smallest record store in the UK, but they have a website and do RSD every year.

    Can we please get a Marilyn Manson box set? Perhaps around the time or a little after the the new album comes out? Yeah? Yeah. Black vinyl. All albums and Smells Like Children definitely. I'd love Remix and Repent, Best Of, and Last Tour on Earth as well. But I don't want to be too greedy. Please vinyl gods.

    I'd love to see a 7" box set or a 4xLP of all of the 10" and 7" songs. That's in addition to keeping the LPs in print.
