    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.

    they just went up this morning if you are talking about the rsd records they put up? are you seriously worried that something you paid for less than 12 hours ago hasn't shipped? because if so....FUUUUUUUUUUCCCCKKKKKK YOOOOOUUUUUUU.

    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.

    Craziest thing I saw was someone buying the Stone Sour release, I didn't know they had fans.

    Crazy thing I experienced is that I spent $65 on 2 records and feel like I got a "deal".

    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.

    I just spent four hundred bucks and only 11 of it on a record for myself. I tried to get as much stuff as I could for you guys. Send me a direct message if I got any of this stuff for you so we can do PayPal stuff

    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.

    It may seem like a lot at first, but once you learn Jack uses the first 9,000 as disposable plates for his Illuminati parties at Bohemian Grove you realize just how rare it is.

    I should probably just buy 5 copies of that Brand New, and then sit on them until the inevitable 2 months each year when Triple Crown forgets to keep it in print. Fun fact: Price gouging Brand New fans is not morally wrong, but in fact a public service.

    Hello all! Here's our annual RSD thread! Hope you've all been well. I'm not sure quite how it happened but we went waaay bigger than last year it feels like so we've got a ton of stuff in house for the day. On top of all that we have been given an exclusive alternate artwork edition of The Longshot 7" picture disc. Customized for us by Billie Joe Armstrong just for RSD. This version will only be available in our stores. If there are leftovers we will put them online but we expect them to go pretty fast. IF YOU'RE IN OAKLAND 8AM TO 8PM First person in line gets 5 minutes in the shop alone. First 100 folks in line get entered in to a raffle for a $100 gift certificate to be given away the following week. Tacos Oscar AND Aburaya Japanese Fried Chicken will be serving up the goods outside the shop!! Supercrush (https://supercrush.bandcamp.com/) from Seattle will be play for free around 3pm!! IF YOU'RE IN SF 8AM TO 8PM First person in line gets 5 minutes in the shop alone. First 100 folks in line get entered in to a raffle for a $100 gift certificate to be given away the following week. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR OUR LEFTOVERS Leftovers will be up at http://www.1234gorecords.com/catalog after we close on Saturday. I will update here with as accurate a time as possible. We have to reconcile two stores inventory to make sure everything is up and accurate but that usually only takes an hour or so. Rules of the mail order road. 1. Please make sure your address is correct in your paypal account. We ship directly from paypal and they automatically input whatever address you have in there. If it isn't correct in your paypal account we may not catch it. 2. Please try to condense everything you want in to one order. We can try to combine orders if you place two but we may also miss it because we're processing hundreds of orders in a very short amount of time. 3. PLEEEEEEEASE don't place an order, freak out that you might not get something, order from some place else and then cancel with us. That's such a bummer. The inventory in our store should be accurate. If it's still up in the store, we still have stock. If we experience an oversell on something we will be in touch ASAP but that didn't happen more than a handful of times last year out of hundreds of orders. 4. If you have questions about an order, Please email [email protected] We won't be doing customer service stuff in this thread or even checking it that often as we'll be working like crazy to get your orders out in a timely manner. Finally, Know we love you and are working very hard to get your orders out as quickly as possible. Also know that it's two people working on this and we aren't Amazon so while it will go quickly it won't be same day shipping. Last year I think we got everything out withing 5 or 6 days total. Oh and tracking will be available in your paypal account once we've shipped. If it's not there, we haven't gotten to it yet. We've got a pretty great reputation around these parts for the most part I think so don't be scurred. We're going to take care of you and it's going to be great. Thanks everyone! You guys really make the dream work for us post RSD and it's greatly appreciated! Oh hey, one last thing, our Oakland shop just turned TEN YEARS OLD this year! Thanks for your support over the years. We've got these snazzy anniversary shirts for sale right now in our Oakland shop and in our webstore if you're interested. HD Cotton shirts and a discharge print so the design will never crack or distort on you, unlike the band Discharge. Limited time only availability on those so if ya want one don't wait too long!

    That looks like a heavy duty Stoughton tip on jacket too. Pay $20 more for a much thinner wide spine single pocket jacket with a fucking piece of paper insert and ugly variant because it's more limited... Jack White should seriously feel shitty about ripping people off that way. You'd think him of all people would at least try to not make it so obvious he didn't start up a pressing plant to improve the industry but to milk it even more.

    I got 3 of the 4 so I hope they're the right ones. I have no room in my bag though(and 5 flights in the next week) so they are going to ship once they can get the arcade fire for me next week. Let me know if you want them and they are yours....just have to wait a bit. Sigur Ros rsd https://imgur.com/gallery/0tH5zSc

    Discogs.com is slowly building up their RSD 2018 inventory list. I would expect most of the 2018 releases to be online by tomorrow morning. What I am doing going through the list and adding the titles I want to my Discogs My Wants List. Here is the link to the RSD 2018 list. The list is growing by the hour. www. discogs.com/rsd Once you've added your wants to the Discogs My Wants listings, you can look for new offerings of your specific wants here: www.discogs.com/sell/mywants

I was gonna post "What a fucking dweeb" then I was like "Oh, what a racist dweeb" but then I got to the end and now I'm gonna go with "What a pretentious racist ass dweeb" (Note: not doing drugs doesn't make you a dweeb. Jack White just sounds like a fucking dweeb about it)
