  1. THE OFFICIAL EBAY CRAZINESS THREAD

    So this worked out pretty well. Sleeve and vinyl were a bit grimey, but played remarkably well other than a little click for a few rotations on side b. Also, in the same spirit of my initial message, I seem to have a knack for landing 2003 Vagrant emo at good deals: In Reverie, $20 BIN, $4 shipping. Hopefully condition is as good as described. Deals exist if you're a deadbeat and can check ebay frequently.
  2. Is dead format.........dead?

    If I have something that isn't on Discogs and I want it to be catalogued in my collection, I add it to Discogs.
  3. Is dead format.........dead?

    I signed up for both DF and Discogs at the same time when I started cataloguing and caring about my record collection after over a decade apart. I immediately found DF to be an entirely unacceptable website and to this day my head spins when people take such strong pro-DF stances. DF was an objectively poor quality databasing website and I have yet to hear a cogent negative complaint against Discogs but I am listening. If you're not the only person looking for such extensive cataloguing capabilities, then it sounds like you've noticed a new opportunity. If you can code and database, I'd recommend you give it a go. Since Discogs is for music - I don't think anyone is suggesting it as the solution for your music collection, plus your anime, Viva La Bam DVDs, Bartman comics, and fidget spinner collection. But seriously, if no one is making what you want (and it sounds like you looked), you should think about making it. This is fascinating to me. It sounds like you don't know how to use the filters built into Discogs despite it is so intuitive and easy. You can filter by different options which should cover nearly anyone's needs, plus choose how many items to show per page (up to 250), and change the page layout between three different views - large covers, text with covers, and text only. Using the filters can get you alphabetical and text only in a matter of seconds. To your complaint about difficulty in putting a collection together in discogs, it is a databasing website and (un)fortunately data quality is important so we're going to have to deal with the extra few seconds in choosing the actual pressing we have and contributing to the database. Seriously, spend a few minutes on the site clicking on things. If you still cringe about it, then learn how to use excel.

    Just because they're classics doesn't mean they aren't garbage.

    I made this post on Reddit because they needed the fine print pointed out, but I think I need to post it here as well. If you're emailing the people who sent your pre-order confirmation ([email protected]), they aren't involved with the CD's and honestly don't have any idea. The CDs are coming direct from someone with PMT I believe.

    Still checking the mail box everyday, still nothing here in Toronto. I'm hoping this week or next. Canada Post of slow. BUT, I also had my 2006 Demos cassette not show up. Which, at the time sold out and many wound up on ebay selling for 3x-5x the price. All it takes is one USPS or Canada Post employee hip to how valuable this CD is for it to never arrive.... packaging marked PMT and CD sized? No tracking? Yoink. Anyway, enjoy your CD while I rant like a paranoid asshole!

    I'm in for three pre-orders so far and will buy the standard locally once it arrives as well. Excessive!

    There is a bass and drum rhythm during a verse in one song that sounds like In The Garage, and people are being dramatic calling it a rip off. Don't know the STOLEN AND PLAGIARIZED Alice in Chains bit though.
  9. New jam is a fucking ripper! By the way, what's up with this "deluxe" MP3 version on amazon?
  10. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    487 now, two more pre-orders without CD added from me and a bud.
  11. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Apparently "TAKEOFF5" will get you a 5% discount, if that helps cool down that meatball.
  12. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Oh, how lovely! Please keep us posted - I wonder if us intl Australian exclusives have a notification coming too.
  13. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Damn, I was just being facetious.
  14. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Fucking hell... What is their VC username?

    Ah, so just a gouging retail shop. When I read your post I jumped to the conclusion that it was just some jabroni operating a web shop in the image of a retail business, but flipping shit he bought elsewhere. Thanks for the followup.
