    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    The thing about Gotcha is that he's had at least 2 or more prior accounts on VC. They're easy to pick out because he dive-bombs random threads with a degree of animosity that leaves everyone scratching their heads. If a user with < 100 posts begins to ridicule members – seemingly out of nowhere – and lashes out at them with unprecedented angst... you can bet it's the same guy being a twerp. The part that's puzzling is that it's gone on for years. I wholeheartedly believe that he has a social disorder and should seek professional help. No snark; life is too short to harbor that amount of bitterness. You can say that you enjoy a good shitpost or that you pride yourself in being a troll, whatever. And you may even get off on people struggling with real-world shit who voice their hardships in otherwise stable communities. But when you take the time to publicly relish in everyone's misery and pick fights online, you can't sincerely tell me that you're anything less than someone aspiring to be a try-hard mouth-breathing keyboard brawler. Fuck off and get help.

    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).

    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.

    Why vinyl?

    Why vinyl? Why, to listen to it of course! One night, I was half asleep thinking about how I wasn't supporting artists anymore because 95% of my music came on promo for review....so...that's when I realized I could break out that turntable that was given to me, and use that Crobot EP I accidentally bought, and start listening to vinyl records. As others have said, good speakers, good turntable and you'll get a wonderful experience. I liken it to home theater set ups in the 90's on VHS...some of those tapes sounded JUST like being in the theater, some sounded a little better, and some sounded the same. So, for sound quality, it's at worst a zero sum game, but my vinyl library is in ONE room and I have to go work to listen to it...not the shuffling I do with my iPhone the whole rest of the time.

    So we're still running with that joke, huh? Nice. I do admire how you completely ignored cantdance's inquiry about your immaculate marriage. As much as I value your innovative and not-at-all uninspired """sick burns""", I really am curious to hear how content you are with your personal life. It must be a slice of heaven considering how much you enjoy lashing out at various members in threads, and just how bitter of a shitposting troglodyte you come off as, in general. How old are you? 40? And you're peddling Hot Topic records on eBay while preying on the hardships of complete strangers on the internet? I'm sorry that you genuinely fucked up in life and had to settle in every possibly regard, but there's no need to take that out on the boards. Please keep attacking me and cluttering up this thread. I would quite enjoy seeing you banned. Again.

    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.

    UK vinyl deals

    I got Abbey Road already (despite already owning a copy) yesterday. Seems to be the exact same as the 2009 remastered copy I have! Sounds great and very impressed with the artwork and disc, etc. I too thought it'd be a cheaply pressed copy, but seems legit. Btw, £9.99 is the introductory offer price. Future single albums will be £17.99 - which I still think is a pretty good deal considering they're at least £20 in HMV or Fopp or wherever - and £25 for double and triple albums is an absolute steal! Can't wait to collect them all. I feel about 8 again when I collected all the editions of that dinosaur magazine to make a glow-in-the-dark Tyrannosaurus Rex!
