    Yep, I remember the comic book insanity. They kept pushing out inferior product with many variants riding on the fear of "missing out" by collectors. Resale prices inflated. One day people realized that that pointless variant of an obscure soundtrack Lady Death comic wasn't worth much of anything. I see happy days ahead for collectors' record portfolios.

    Bubbles and collapses can absolutely happen within niches and subcultures without the larger culture ever noticing. I'm sure most people aren't aware of the comic book crash of the mid-90s, and yet it had an inescapable effect on comics.

    Sorry for being a post-whore but I just confirmed a trip on a very doomed boat along the coast of Sweden with Electric fucking Wizard headlining. Was set on not going but was lucky to find some last minute tickets from dudes who'd bought early and it will be a two day marathon with the free afterparty including Spelljammer. I'm losing it. Also, if for any of you die-hard Monolord fans, they'll be selling a sick print there that I might grab if any of you are super keen on it.

    The silver vinyl is available at Amoeba, by the way. https://www.amoeba.com/slowdive-silver-vinyl-lp-slowdive/albums/3927451/ The current Music On Vinyl pressing of it is fantastic.

    I used to go until I found out I'd rather spend a few days in Tokyo and get the same records almost half the price.

    I wonder if my children will read about the great Beanie Baby crash of 1998 in their history text books.

    As long as people are continuing to purchase vinyl for the purpose of listening rather than the purpose of collecting, I believe there'll be no bubble to burst. But if folks are only buying them as an investment, there will be a bubble to burst.

    Touché Amore - Stage Four 9/16/16

    Saw them last night in Pittsburgh and they were amazing. They put on such a solid and emotional set. Grabbed me a peach copy as well.

    I'm already looking forward to their third album Piglet. I heard it comes on Winnie The Pooh yellow/red swirl with heavy honey splatter. Also, selling my Goya Die Hard, enamel pin and all, if anyone's interested?

    It was just put up on FatBeats the other day for the same price as BM, so that is always an option, but I'll be super bummed if Amazon pulls out too.

    You're a good man Gumbo. GOTCHA on the other hand.... A guy who can be this much of an asshole on the internet can no way be a standup guy to his girl in real life. My bet is she has no idea of this Internet persona and would be appalled by this behavior if she ever found it. Living an alter ego out online and acting another way in real life is not healthy and will manifest itself in his relationship soon enough. I sincerely hope you stop this and go spend your time learning and loving your wife/girlfriend instead.

    Saw them last week and they were one of the best sounding live bands I've heard in recent years. They played a couple of new songs that I got really excited about.

    Got my VIP order from Joyful Noise yesterday. As others have said, it's a really well constructed package and the lemon/cotton candy swirl looks great. I only gave it one run through, but the pressing sounds aces -- I think Richard's voice comes through more than on the digital files (where it felt a little buried in the mix), but that could just be my setup. Personal favorites off the record so far are Management of Savagery (which gives me an Animal vibe, from the ambiance and the presumed focus on cults) and Pornographic Teens. Moonwrapped is also incredible -- probably the most personal song he's ever written, and it feels like a beautiful dovetail into another chapter (and maybe the next record).

    OK so I heard back from Miguel. He has asked me to not pass along the info. They are working on the issue as I type this and should have it sorted out soon. He said no worries, it's going up soon. Sorry I could not help you out more guys.

    RECORD FAIR IN UTRECHT HOLLAND?

    Tivoli/Vredenburg/De Helling is a pretty solid music venue. Ofcourse it depends on who's playing. https://www.dehelling.nl/ Ekko is another ok venue. Bars , depends on your taste There used to Stairway To Heaven, but it has new owners and is some stupid club.

    RECORD FAIR IN UTRECHT HOLLAND?

    I go every other year, because mostly I end up spending way to much money. On average prices are a tad higher than on Discogs, but you will save on shipping. Also I often find stuff I never seen before and aren't listed on Discogs. Plus there are so many high ticket items to choose from, rare 70's Springsteen singles, they are there, Dischord, Revelation classic are for sale, booths filled with Japanse/South American/South Africa pressings. The list goes on. I do find a few good to very good deals if you take the time the whole day to search as much booths as possible, you just have to dig and be a bit lucky. 2nd press Bad Brains - Pay To Cum for 40 bucks. Green Day slappy EP on green for 10 bucks, which sold for 430 three days later. Quicksand - Slip LP for 5 bucks. Inside Out 7" on blue for 2 bucks. Ray and Porcell 7" out of 100 for 1 buck. A few of the ones that stood out for me.

    MAN ADVICE v2.0

    So we called it quits today. Kinda bummed, but... what can you do. It's the best course of action. We talked for a bit, and still might see each other... who knows. She still pulled the "Well I told you multiple times I didn't want a relationship" when i pressed her about not being truthful about fucking up school. So apparently to the younger generation, you can say "I want to be with you, but don't want a relationship" and because you voiced that concern, that gives you the green light to be deceitful and evasive and not be on your best, most genuine behavior. This girl is in for a long life of heartache and instability I fear. It saddens me. I see us being somewhat of a semi-frequent friends with benefits thing, I suppose. Maybe not the healthiest option haha, but.... both parties involved have needs I'm still sad, because the whirlwind romance has now ended. Lesson learned: don't date a fucking 21 year old lol

    Just don't feed this troll. He's an asshole and his behavior is pathetic. He'll continue his superiority bullshit and making dumb sex doll jokes. It's like the old school Simpsons Halloween episode about ads come to life: Just don't look.

    So I'm a sucker and part of the problem. I am the reason why Newbury Comics gets away with their bullshit. About a week and a half ago I stopped into one on my way home from work. And I found a copy of Newbury's exclusive The Strokes - Room on Fire. $49.99. And of course, I bought it because I was seeking that variant and it was the cheapest I was ever going to find it considering what it goes for on the secondary market. I asked the cashier why it was so marked up, and he said, "I don't know. We're just told to change the prices. But this is a really good price for this pressing." To which I replied, "It's unfair to hike prices of your exclusives just because of how its sales are behaving in the secondary market, but I'm the sucker that's falling for it so whatever." He just laughed. Anyway, I found something amusing when I took the shrink wrap off of the record. All of the price tags were placed on top of one another. Since the beginning of its sale back in 2015, the price had changed 9 times. There were 9 separate tags on the jacket, all on top of one another. I tried to peel them so I could get a picture to show the increase, but basically it went from $26.99 to $49.99 gradually. Usually when something sits on the shelf it goes down in price, right? Hits clearance maybe? So I'm done with Newbury. Will never support them again, and don't have to now that I've moved from rural Massachusetts to NYC. But I guess they got the last laugh. TL;DR I suck.
