    PO SOON : Sleep - The Sciences

    Can confirm. 10k pressing of the green. 2.5k went to stores. 1.5k went to various upholsterers in Belgium. 1k to Outpost 31 in Antarctica. 1k to Nick Alt. 1k to the band, but they got high and lost them. 1k hidden inside used Bay City Rollers albums 750 sent on a weather balloon into space 500 to Piggly Wiggly locations in West Virginia 500 were incinerated immediately to forge a new throne for Jack The remaining 250 were pressed without a B side, So Jack will put those up as rare for $420 next week. Hope this helps.

    I Think I'm Gonna Quit The Hobby

    I just find it hard to believe when members say everything they buy shows up damaged. My collection is larger than most and it's also around a 90/10 online/retail split. I've had 3 records get destroyed in 12 years of collecting I just don't get what the fuck is happening for the world to pick on you people.

    Record Store Day 2018

    RSD was awesome for me, I've been on both sides of the counter but this was my first experience managing a record store for RSD. We gave out donuts and coffee for the morning crowd, had local artists perform from open until close. Raffled off concert tickets, new cds, new and used LPs including a gold copy of the Drive soundtrack, brushes and cleaning fluid, a carrying case for 45s filled with rare 45s, some rare Linda ronstadt records (it's an inside joke unless you have been to my shop, we got a collection containing every Linda Ronstadt record or single on any format including 8 track and also variants on just about every country of release from Japan to Argentina, so we did a test pressing and an import picture sleeve and a picture disc LP for the raffle). It was humbling to see that many people having a great time and buying physical media. Sales were up a sizable amount from the previous year, so I'm beaming with pride. I oversaw all the ordering and spent countless hours prepping and it was well worth all the effort, and my staff was on point the whole time and leading up to the event, I could not have done it without them. I rewarded them with gourmet pizza. I in turn was also rewarded because at the end of the day I was still able to grab the Tim Armstrong, Dessa 7" and The Grant Green Slick set. I did snipe one thing and it was the Sundays but I had the other 2 and I was damned if I was going to miss this one but I paid sticker price. Luckily the other local had a Bert Jansch, so all I missed out on from my list was the Gene Clark and I think I have a line on a leftover. Fantastic experience all and all but I am exhausted.

    I know I'm a few days later here, but just wanted to chime in on the website being wonky (I'm Bob from Colemine and Plaid Room). When we update the back end, it happens in two steps. First, all the add to cart buttons are un-hidden from this page: https://www.plaidroomrecords.com/collections/rsd2018 This happens almost instantly, as I'm only changing the Shopify collection settings, and individual items aren't really edited.....just the way they're displayed. The second wave of updates takes me between 2-5 minutes to complete. Each item must be individually updated (changing the item template on the Shopify back end) so that it removes the text about it being an RSD item and replaces it with an add to cart button, like the button shown here: https://www.plaidroomrecords.com/collections/rsd2018/products/b-baby-huey-b-br-i-the-baby-huey-story-the-living-legend-i-1 I've received many comments/inquiries regarding the site. I was actually blown away that the site maintained, Shopify is an incredible platform. I don't remember exact numbers, but there was between 800-1200 folks on the site at 8am, and the page refreshes were something like 4,000 - 10,000 per minute. In the end, I haven't heard any complaints about crashing.....just about folks adding things to their cart that sold out before they could check out. Unfortunately, that's the nature of the platform, and I don't have any great solutions for that. In the end, we got a lot of orders from a lot of folks, and everything was listed at or below retail....so I think a lot of people got stuff they missed out on and didn't have to pay the flipper prices....and that's absolutely always my goal. :-)

    The guy in front of my girlfriend and I bought a fuckton of stuff. Turns out he was just a super-friendly dad and this was his first RSD. He works at a different record store that wasn't participating. Half of what he was buying was non-RSD stuff and he was just happy to be partaking. It was really wholesome in the sea of grody peeps

    I know that there are a lot of new faces in this thread due to general RSD hype, but it should be noted that absolutely nothing Tug has said on this forum has ever once proven to be true. His account is typically banned 50% of the time, or more. The lack of affection from his parent(s) and general poor life decisions have led him to crave attention on message boards, and it's best to just not feed into it.

    Hydrahead is doing a fundraiser for Caleb Scofield's family and repressing his Zozobra releases on vinyl. All have been out of press for a while and were originally pressed in really small numbers. All the money raised will go to his family. Below is the text from the post from HYDRAHEADS facebook page. There honestly is not a better reason to pick these up and support his family and his music. "With the blessing of Caleb Scofield's family, Hydra Head is preparing to initiate a music based fundraising effort on their behalf. This will take shape in the form of a special reissue of Caleb's Zozobra albums on vinyl, an unreleased EP of Zozobra songs, and an Old Man Gloom Caleb tribute shirt. All proceeds will be donated to the Scofield family. This serves as our recognition of love and appreciation for Caleb, as well as a gift to all the people who've been positively impacted by his music. We are honored to help carry the torch of his creative voice into the future. The fundraiser will be launched later this week, details to follow. Thank you."

    So not to be rude, but how are you determining that it turned “really nice” and was “a solid buy” if you haven’t opened it up yet to examine the craftsmanship or quality of the pressing? I’m all for people keeping this Underoath album sealed and off their turntables, but I’m just curious what you’re gauging off of. Like, did you unbox it and hold it in your hands, and think to yourself wow I was expecting a light 7” case but this has some heft! I am impressed. This is a good product. I am content with the weight of this...? Doesn’t matter but would still enjoy hearing the thought process.

    Vaporwave Vinyl Releases & Info

    if it wasn’t for the group buys, there would be little to no discussion in here so I dunno what all the crying is about. @EHughes527 goes out of his way to plan these and doesn’t have to at all. it’s not like he’s making money off it, if anything, he’s using up his own free time to pack, ship, and communicate with labels so people can have a chance at a better price for vinyl that is typically quite expensive. if you don’t want to participate, don’t. if you want more discussion? start a discussion. its that simple. be part of the solution, not the “problem”.

    What OP needs to do is focus on a few, hand curated titles focusing on the customer’s unique taste and then send those out automatically every month so they can spin them on their Crosleys and post pictures in Instagram. Maybe he can called it VINL?

    Here's the best part of it, guys. You'll actually enjoy this. Being the baby dicked vulture that stl_ben is, the Mondo thread is one – if not the – bloated carcass that he circles over on a daily basis. This is his home. His domain. He's not going anywhere. In an effort to convince us that we haven't truly gotten under his skin, he's pretending as though he's unable to read any of these posts. While he may have truthfully blocked a few of us, this is mostly to stimulate a false sense of pride: he would love us to believe that he's not actually clicking "Show Post Anyway" on each and every response. And he wants nothing more than for us to believe that none of this is phasing him. But let's be honest for a moment. You're not going to run the risk of tuning out every gape post in this thread... because, well, what happens when one of those jokers posts a hot link to a limited Mondo exclusive? A rare restock? Let's face it; strap-ons aren't cheap and the finest lubricant does not pay for itself. If you were a sleazy blob of a man who's manhandled by your wife, would you eat all the costs of that, out of your own pocket? Hell no. You would offset those expenses by hawking Lego figurines from Comicon, wouldn't you? You're a family man after all – you're going to jump at every chance you can get to ensure that your better half has the finest beads to ram into your asshole, because at the end of the day you really do want what's best for her. And that means eying this thread like a hawk. Sure, there's a lot of anus talk. Yeah, it's redundantly revealed that no one likes you. Hell, someone may even imply that you're a pedophile now and then. But at the end of the day, that online harassment is worth it if it means you can score a Katamari record to flip in 2 months. How could it not be? You're fooling no one, Benny boy. Enjoy "not reading" this one.

    Song is great. That outro needs to be like 3-4 minutes longer though. I could live inside that groove forever. Also, I'm too emotionally numb to cry right now. Girls are stupid. I honestly don't even want to buy records anymore. ::shrug::

    AMAZON U.S. Vinyl Deals & More Thread

    Actual review from YFW: What happened to the Brand New that I grew up loving? The deep, emotional, meaningful lyrics of "The God and the Devil are Raging Inside Me?" What happened to that heavy guitar and vocals from Deja Entu?" Ugh, this is so poppy and such a horrible generic sound. Nice knowing you, Brand New. Your older stuff remains among my favorite music, but this is garbage. Lyrically and musically, this album belongs in the trash. I guess every great band puts out a crap album.

    Right, but my main marketing plot will be customer service that is more personalized and catered towards DVD enthusiasts. I know personally when I shop online for movies I want to rent from someone who knows what they're doing. The plan for this idea isn't to grow this into chains across the country. My goal is to layout a spot where you can browse through an extremely user friendly website and read customer reviews from other film enthusiasts and even contact one of the owners to discuss movies you like and different recommendations for the customer.
