  1. Farewell Starlite is a stone cold banger but I’ve listened to this new one twice and I couldn’t tell you a single thing about it.
  2. Got my peak vinyl in the mail today. Album rules, but the vinyl is a Pirates Press color-in-color job, and it reminded me of why I do my best to avoid their fancy color pressings. Noisy and shrill as fuck, Hopefully it will be better after a good cleaning.
  3. Record Store Day 2018

    Anyone who's ever been in a record store can tell you the world needs *more* Elvis Presley records in existence.
  4. Ah geez, ah fuck please next time consider that there is a person behind the screen name, getting owned this hard online takes a huge toll on my mind and spirit
  5. It's intellectually dishonest to pretend like the bad word is the problematic part. This is the same argument MAGA-heads employed when the Access Hollywood tape came out - "oh-so-sensitive liberals can't handle a president who talks like #realamericans!" I think the media is too easily coerced into reframing the argument as "whether or not it's ok for Trump to say a cuss". Coarseness and vulgarity are one thing - certainly one wouldn't want to say these words around kids, and to some degree I do think your personal conduct should be above reproach when you're the president of the United States, but also, c'mon. I know pastors who'll pepper a "shit" into a conversation as context allows. No, the issue is the context of "[black and brown countries that have been decimated for generations via occupation and tampering by western governments] are shitholes. Why should we let them in? Why not let in people from [the whitest country on the planet] instead?" He says shit like this all the time, but usually even his smooth oatmeal brain will manage to frame it in a way that allows GOPers plausible deniability, so they just have to do a little cursory hand waving before getting back to gutting Medicaid and cutting taxes for billionaires. This time is the most explicitly racist thing he's said as president. You can't even call it a dog whistle, the mental gymnastics required to offer an alternative explanation are dizzying.
  6. Haiti in particular has been getting fucked over in major ways for literally centuries, first by French colonialism then by US imperialism. So it is pretty fucking disgraceful for a sitting president to call it a shithole when his predecessors are essentially the reason it is the way it is today. It's like if your neighbor slashed your tires, called your car a piece of shit, then got all sanctimonious when you asked for a ride.
  7. This album came out in 2003 and has been in print pretty much the whole time, and now it's 10 dollars, so I think I'm being pretty generous.
  8. WTB: Low/Retribution Gospel Choir

    I'm down to five 7"s. The RGC 7" is widely available, but if you've got one of the others, holla.
  9. If you don't own this and don't take advantage of this deal you do not deserve to be alive
  10. One’s gone. Since someone asked, I’ll note that these are all still sealed.
  11. If you don't know what these are, Sub Pop sends promotional copies of new releases to record stores for them to play in store.
