  1. I also enjoy Ceremony, and I'll gladly hop on anything new they may release, but L-Shaped Man was just about 3 years ago.
  2. To this day, Hazards is still the only Decemberists album I've heard in full. It's been a long, long while since I've played... but seeing this thread inspired me to throw it on. Still holds up.
  3. Flenser Releases

    I’ve never listened to Drowse but that description is killer. It’s been a while since I’ve pre-ordered something from an artist I’m 100% unfamiliar with, but I think I may roll the dice on this one.
  4. That new single is tight. Nothing from the band has resonated with me as well as their S/T under Viet Cong, but I’m definitely in.
  5. Yeah, I'd agree with that too. The availability on these aren't too concerning to me at all – I plan to wait out a deal even if it takes a bit longer. I understand that not everyone has the same patience though.
  6. That's what the word on the street is. That still doesn't mean that 3rd party Amazon sellers and-or Discogs sellers won't have these available at some point, though.
  7. Yeah, that's not the news you were hoping to hear at all, I'd bet. I hope you can get it sorted out. There's absolutely no reason you shouldn't have it by now – at this rate I think the delivery could've failed and been returned to the sender, considering how much time has passed. Even with an extra month of waiting, I think you'll be very pleased with the finished product once you get it figured out.
  8. Got mine ages ago. Like probably 2-3 weeks ago, if I had to guess.
  9. Me? I have no say in the lurking or actions he partakes in here at VC or eBay, Discogs, etc. I just wish there was a way for him and other POdophiles to be flagged from popular pre-order sites (Deathwish, Bandcamp, etc.). Kind of like a registered sex-offender database.
  10. I spoke of no rape. Sorry. You’re not putting words in my mouth, so fuck out of here with your assumptions or implications. Check the context of his posts – I’m fairly certain rape doesn’t fit the shoe. Take it up with Tetsuo. It’s not like I text or PM the dude and snicker about what his posts may or may not mean. Oh, definitely among the worst. I’ve vented about him along with Halo 2 plenty of times.
  11. It’s called an analogy, Ben. You have to connect the dots for comparison’s sake. If you genuinely believe that I think an eBay flipper should face the same legal consequences as a pedophile, you’re obviously even more of a moron than I give you credit for. And literally no one said anything rape, so fuck out of here with that. Tetsuo randomly posts about gaping and “Matrix” across countless threads – even after a year or two of it, I have no idea what it truly means, so I opt to play along with it. You would know this if you opted to actually read the threads instead of swooping in to check the first post’s link, where you hurriedly pile multiple copies of limited pre-orders into your cart while diddling yourself during the checkout process. Or maybe you have in fact read his posts, but lack the reading comprehension or literary recognition to make sense of it – would probably explain why you need to flip so many records so often to supplement an income. Employment opportunities are limited when you can’t read at a high school level.
  12. I'm not sure how much time you spend on VC, but the thing about stl_ben is that he actually does frequent the board to hop onto "hype" releases to buy specifically for immediate resale – sometimes in bulk. Basically the vinyl-aftermarket equivalent of a pedophile, standing at a distance and licking his pencil mustache while eyeballing any sort of limited, alluring release he can get his hands on for a quick buck. Same thing can be said for limited items at conventions [Comicon, Mondo conventions, etc.] Dude is sleazy as fuck and had (has) no idea what vaporwave even is until this thread garnered some attention.
  13. Dude has been gaping so hard for so many years that the damage is irreversible... but the least he can do is be proactive and do something with his life.
