  1. Not any more or less than any given Used record requires a press.
  2. That's rad. Sounds like their limitation on them is working. Still don't have one for myself, but still really want one.
  3. Call them whatever you'd like; basically anything is better than a mob of users trying to pitch links to earn $10 for a vinyl webstore. The cringe is real.
  4. To be fair, the only reason you're at -16 and not -360 is because you joined right before they removed the option to downvote.
  5. So I just wanted to chime in and say that there was absolutely nothing "dead" about the dead stock I received, on my copy of MOWIE. Like zdkaiser said, my gatefold crisply creaked and hissed when I opened it up, and it's even got that new-print smell. Zero ringwear, worn seams, or anything of the nature. It looks and feels brand new. I haven't spun it, but I'm happy to read posts stating that the sound quality is ace. I have to confess that I hadn't heard this album before ordering. I mostly jumped on it because it's TTA. And because Ghostly. Later in the afternoon after ordering, I queued it up on Spotify at work and absolutely loved what I heard. Really stoked to luck out with the opportunity to order one at face value, and even more pleased with the condition it arrived in.
  6. Nah, sassy retorts are preferred to sleazy $10-desperation posts over here on the West coast, too.
  7. What did he mean by this? The tone of your post is pretty facetious but it reads 100% logically, actually. I'm still very interested to hear the significance behind an electronic record featuring sexual moans and whimpers by a minor. Is it a closet-fetish kinda' thing?
  8. If you don't care about variants at all, that's great, and I'm glad Good Apollo will be made available to all... but does anyone else really think that Coheed shot themself in the foot by accidentally dropping that PO early? Not only did it reveal a drastically inferior variant, but it's tough for me to accept that you really have to "settle" for $50 PPD to get it, when 2,500 copies of a far-more alluring colorway were floating around out there with an MSRP of $29.99. I get that beggars can't be choosers, but that's rough.
  9. I think it has to do with seeing A7X in person and dedicating a piece of your time on earth to have them sign something you claim ownership to.
  10. My other contribution was going to be "Probably just one at a time." Obviously it'd be quite a daunting task, but if you chiseled away at it, I think it'd be feasible. Maybe do one cube of an Expedit / Kallax every weekend, or something. Not ideal but MoFi is definitely the way to go.
  11. Correct. You should be just fine as long as you never remove the records and just keep them on display for the cred, going forward.
  12. Imagine being that miserable and distraught with the way your life has turned out. Voting to upgrade Idioteque from timeout corner to suicide watch. We're here for support but it really is in his best interest to seek professional help.
  13. Like I'm actually kind of fascinated that this is a thing. What is the optimal time to play something like that? When the parents drop in? Hanging out with the bros? Casual party soundtrack? Background tunes for a candle-lit dinner with the girlfriend body pillow? Sort of kidding but also mostly curious, and not trying to shame anyone into buying it for reasons I may not comprehend. I'm unfamiliar with the entire "genre" as a whole.
  14. Wasn't familiar with this album or artist, but that first Amazon review...
