Sounds like a pain for me to sign up since I am newer. Plus I don't have a trade list because I pretty much have what I want. Reach out if someone gets screwed over and I will help out getting them set up.

Nah. You're good. The only thing would be that you need to ship yours out a bit earlier than everyone else. Other then that, you should be fine. Sign up if you'd like :)

I don't want to speak for anyone here (especially the organizers) but personally I'd be fine with receiving someone who didn't have a full trade list as long as you have a list of your collection somewhere.  If I know what you have then I can figure out something to get you that you don't already have.  Otherwise you won't be receiving any records (which is fine too).

in the past we have been a bit flexible about what defines a tradelist...so long as it gives an idea of what your tastes are and not just leaving your santa in the dark without any idea of what to get you. if you send an incomplete tradelist and get something you already own then thats your own fault haha

 

plus i know a lot of us got screwed with DF shutting down earlier this month :(

Last time I did it, we were supposed to each write a little bio of ourselves and  post it here to help give people ideas.  Is that not a thing anymore or something?

This should certainly continue, especially after dead format went down. I know i haven't put up a tradelist anywhere else (yet). We should pin this year's thread to the top as well.

 

I got my SS this morning. good times.

Excited for this!

 

My name is Hiram and I've been on VC for almost 2 years now. I currently go to school for audio engineering and I also have an associates in Guitar performance. I play bass in an alternative rock band and I DJ when I can. My life pretty much revolves around music and I'm boring and have little interests outside of music, lol. I love an array of music styles but I grew up on Punk and Metal and lately it's been mostly Hip-Hop. I also love 90s alternative, emo, old school house, early 2000s pop and a bunch of random shit. I'm also a huge Pokémon fan and another on and off hobby is collecting Pokémon cards. Lastly, I'm hipster as fuck and enjoy craft beers, I'll drink anything not a stout.

 

Artists I really like: System of a Down, Tool, Type O Negative, Vince Staples, Kanye West, Mastodon, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, Kendrick Lamar, Deftones, Daft Punk, Portishead, and bunch more. 

 

My up-to-date Discogs is in my bio. I'm also pretty open to anything so if someone wants to send me something completely different from what's in my collection, by all means do it. I love learning about new music.

I'm Manish, I'm 37, and live in the Bay Area. I work at 2K games, and am a DJ and volunteer at KALX Berkeley.
 
My musical tastes range. Though, I tend to stay on the heavier side of punk/Metal, but I do have a soft spot for old RnB, Funk, soul, blues, and 80's Hip Hop (My collection is lacking a lot of this stuff so I'm always on the lookout to expand that way). Check out my Discogs page for more. 
 
Visually, I'm a bit of a sci-fi and cartoon fan. Been spending a lot of time watching 80's Transformers, Firefly, Simpsons, Futurama, Batman. 
 
I have and unnatural love of lego, board/card/video (PS4/PC) games, puzzles, and sometimes action figures. 
 
As far as things I'd be interested in, my wife and I just bought a new place so getting a cool small decoration sort of thing for the homestead would be rad. Other than that, music is always nice, books, games, the standard stuff I think we all like :D
 
Favorite color.. Dark purple.

Hey hello my names Eric 20 years old, I'm a photography major and I currently live in NYC/Dallas. My main hobby is collecting clothes as well as photography( I shoot analog). I still enjoy music don't let that fool you, I just don't collect like I used to and a bulk of my collection is what I like in high school. I play video games but it's pretty much random JRPGS and Overwatch (mercy main btw.) I also make music on my own and when I get a chance.

 

Music I like. I listen to a lot of hip hop and R&B for the bulk of my listening. The Weekend was at one point my favorite artist but my current favorite is Frank Ocean. I love dreampop, slowcore, shoegaze; bands like Beach House, slowdive, My Bloody Valentine whatever you'd like to call it. I also have a soft spot for old school emo like American Football and The World is a Beautiful Place.

I also love me some good cozy 00's indie like Vampire Weekend, The Drums, Arcade Fire etc.

 

But if we're being 100% honest my favorite genre would have to be 80s japanese city pop/funk. So think Pocket Park, Sunshower, Adventure; but it's super fucking niche that being said if you get me any of it I would be forever in your gratitude. Just type in City Pop on youtube and you'll get an idea. I love this stuff and I can't get enough of it

 

I don't watch tv shows, but I'm fucking in love with Twin Peaks; my first tattoo was a Twin Peaks tattoo and I've seen every season at least twice. I love love movies though; I'm very much a style over substance person; I like my films bloody and pretty. My favorite directors are Dario Argento, Sofia Coppola, Jean Luc-Godard, David Lynch and Satoshi Kon

 

I'm obsessed with Persona 4 and 5 right now. My favorite Superheroes are Zatanna and Gwenpool and my favorite color is pastel pink

 

To see what I'm listening to in real time here's my last.fm

 

My favorite albums of all time are:

Tidal - Fiona Apple
Blonde - Frank Ocean
We Fall - Emile Haynie

ABOUT ME

My name is Jesiah, 
I'm 32, and I have an awesome little 5 year old dude. I've been in Calgary for just over two years now.

I have super weird selective taste in everything, especially music. Here is my collection: http://www.discogs.c...ion?user=Daegor and my wantlist: http://www.discogs.c...ist?user=Daegor. I am not a variant collector. I rarely listen to the radio, so chances are if it isn't on my want/have list then I probably haven't heard them before, but I am always eager to consume more music.  All genres are game, though I would be impressed if you found any Country I liked.

 

Some staples I dig from various genres:

  • Alexisonfire
  • Battle Tapes
  • Big Black Delta
  • Birds In Row
  • The Black Queen
  • Celldweller / Circle of Dust / Argyle Park / etc
  • The Chariot / '68
  • Chelsea Wolfe
  • Childish Gambino
  • clipping.
  • Death From Above 1979
  • Death Grips
  • Deftones
  • Every Time I Die
  • Explosions in the Sky
  • FKA Twigs
  • Gallows / Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
  • Gifts from Enola
  • Godspeed You! Black Emperor
  • Haedes
  • Junius
  • Massive Attack
  • mewithoutYou
  • Neverending White Lights
  • Nine Inch Nails / How to Destroy Angels / etc
  • Norma Jean
  • O'Brother
  • Rosetta
  • Saul Williams
  • Sir Sly
  • Starflyer 59
  • Zao


I like TV shows like Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Brooklyn 99, Bojack Horseman, and movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fight Club, and other such mind trip movies, but really will like nearly any movie for one reason or another (Pixar movies and gems like How to Train Your Dragon, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, etc).

I love microbreweries, GOOD liquor, etc.

I like to read, mostly sci-fi stuff like Philip K Dick, Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert.

 

Yup.

Took this from last year and updated:

 

Hi! My name is Shane! I'm a big football fan and love the Carolina Panthers. I go to Old Dominion University and graduated with my Bachelor's Degree last December. I'll be done with my MBA in the spring. My all time favorite movie is The Dark Knight and my favorite superhero is Batman. I'm also a HUGE HUGE HUGE Star Wars fan. My amazing husky is named Kylo. 

I collect Star Wars Funko Pop vinyl and have a decent collection (see my signature for the link to my collection green=have white=need). I have some others too, but I am about to reduce my collection because 1. I have way too many and 2. I just got laid off and need the cash. If you see something I may like feel free to get it - OR if you know someone who makes customs, I've always wanted a custom pop! (If you go this route just surprise me, but I have always wanted a Undercover Boss Matt the Radar Tech custom). {I'll try to add a picture of what I'm keeping}

My favorite band is Fall Out Boy. I go to every concert in the area that I can when they come. I am currently trying to variant collect for them (right now focusing on full length LPs) (they can also be seen in my signature). I am also seeking to get every cd booklet signed by them for an idea I have for my Fall Out Boy wall. {Currently need Live in Phoenix, Infinity on High, American Beauty/American Psycho, and Evening Out with Your Girlfriend}

My favorite genre is pop punk.
Since Deadformat shutdown I've got to rebuild my collection. I'll be doing it on Google Drives, in the same spreadsheet my wantlist is in. I'm hoping to do that this week! If you see something I may like go crazy! I like new stuff.

 

Or just have fun with this. Please have fun with this. 
I think that about sums up my life.

 

Want List

Deadformat Export - Until I have my new list up

(These are probably not in there but I did recently get these as well... FYS 10 year, Brand New - Science Fiction, Neck Deep - Peace and Panic, SOTY - Page Avenue, PVRIS - All we know, From First to Last - Dear Diary and Heroine, Galactic Empire, Mallory Knox - Wired, Blink-182 - Cali Deluxe, PATD - A fever, AFI - Blood album, Pvris - acoustic, 10" Star Wars RSD A New Hope)

 

(Since I can't add anymore URLs to my signature)
Instagram | Twitter | Facebook

 

Oh and I love Jennifer Lawrence

 

 

 

 

Like seriously.... I love her. Can you pack her in a box for me?
