    It sounds to me (and this is probably why people are reacting so strongly) like you're looking to get into the speculative vinyl market, and I've gotta say beyond the ick factor of straight-up asking which records will be out of print soonest, it's just not a great idea in general. Collecting "limited" records for their "value" is a big gamble, and unless you're already knowledgeable and immersed in the hobby, the odds are good that you'll end up stuck with a bunch of records you don't want that you'll eventually dump for a loss. If you want to make easy money flipping stuff, there are probably safer bets out there. Now, if you're asking because you just want to own something, anything, as long as it's limited: I would honestly just take a step back and ask whether possessing rare items will actually make you happy, or if you're just passively following messages you (and all of us! since birth!) are receiving from our western capitalist society that are telling you that consumption is the highest form of cultural participation. Maybe just think about what music connects with you, and seek out a copy of that music on a format that you think is cool. Some of my favorite and most treasured records are monetarily worthless, yet they bring me more joy than records worth $100+ that I bought to fill out a collection.

    Welcome to the boards... I see the welcoming committee has already greeted you! You've gotten these types of responses for a few reasons: 1. The community doesn't take too well to people that are into records because of their looks/rarity or just to put them on the wall in a frame. 2. There is already an UO thread where all new releases or questions can be asked... HERE'S THE LINK (people don't like duplicate threads as the board is already pretty cluttered) 3. There's a general disdain for UO here as they are for the most part just capitalizing on the record boom with no real effort My advice in your question... just buy what you would want and what you'd listen to. Records can be pretty, but if you don't like it you'll look at it in a year or two and think to yourself "that was a dumb purchase" (been there) Cheers

    I'm on board. To be fair, I think mods would have had to approve this thread. Juan has said he takes great joy in occasionally approving potential tire fires like this one.

    Sleeve “Cracking”

    I'm being a little facetious but there's something freeing about seam splits and corner bends. I spend a lot of time reading vinyl forums and browsing Discogs and the Great Quest for Vinyl Perfection can seep it's way into my subconscious as I read about people's frustrations with imperfect jackets or sleeves. It's sort of like getting your first ding on a new car; now, you can stop worrying about getting your first ding and continue with your life. "My jacket has a seam split. Phew. Now, I can just enjoy listening to this and not care about being an archivist and collector of mint memorabilia. I AM FREE."

    Having no discrimination or preference towards streaks is ideal. You were just wondering about - or at least surprised by - the lack critiquing on the BSM variant, and I wanted to give you potential insight. (Not that I'm speaking for everyone.) While the BSM variant doesn't 100% match that original description, it has a subtle / cool / "hold up to the light to really see it" kind of splatter going on, and those are just dandy in my books... hence no critique. So after a couple more listens, I think I'm ready to weigh in on the album. Track by track thoughts for anyone who's already familiar with the album and cares to read an opinion. Spoiler tags for everyone else.

    Do you have a vinyl only instagram?

    I like seeing peoples very rare or beautiful variants. I also like when people sort of delve into what a record means to them. Also, composition! It is photography after all. Some people just create really beautiful images of their records and setups. If the account just has a lady with her cans out caressing some dollar store record, its a hard pass.

    Yo, idk about this here. I've only had good experiences with SmartPunk. I've never had to cancel an order or anything though. Everything is very timely in my experience.

    Yep, I ordered this one too. It's intriguing being on that site and hearing a bunch of diehard Garth fans talk about not having record players but still wanting these sets like BAD. Honestly, it's pretty cool to take a look into another musical subculture that's so far removed from this one and observe what happens within it. Plus, for 130+ shipped and not being charged until October AND getting to pick a 6 digit number that will be pressed into it is a really good value. These albums are definitely classics and I'm pretty excited to finally own these on vinyl.

    With the quantities they are going to produce they could be getting some pretty big discounts. He might only make a couple bucks a record but at half a million 100,000+ (?) orders that adds up real quick. Then again his stuff isn't even on Spotify so he obviously doesn't care about the money.

    The official Horror fan topic

    Haven't checked this thread in forever. You guys see Greta? I hadn't seen/heard much about it. It's not really being marketed as a horror movie but it definitely is. My friend works at a local theater and asked if I wanted to check it out with him on the house after his shift, so I saw it blind today. I fuckin loved it!

    Glad I went with the band version pink. I don’t mind when colors are wacky and don’t match, but I can’t deny enjoying a good color scheme when it does work.

    Considering the state of vaporwave I think this thread is probably the richest of soil for sprouting memes.
