  1. Y'all, It's happening! A deal has been struck and I thank lbw87 so much for being willing to part with this! I'll post some goofy photos once it's back home! Thank you all for tuning in and putting out the word. I cannot believe this is actually happening.

  4. Anyone nab an extra Taylor Swift? I had the last one in the store in my hands but ended up giving it to this girl who was inconsolably in tears when the shop owner told her they were all gone. I overheard the conversation & just broke my heart. The girl is the same age as my niece & reminded me immensely of her. It was obvious she’s more hardcore Swiftie than I & not a flipper. She started crying even more when I gave her the 7”. I believe in karma. So there’s my good deed for the year. 😉

  5. My vinyl collection is only preorders. In fact, once the preorder does ship to me, I simply return it and then remove it from my collection. Then I preorder something new to take its place.

  6. Y'all...It's home! Thank you again for your help and lbw87 for the very reasonable trade! I'm so stoked to have this thing back. My expectations that it would happen were extremely low and I still can't believe it happened.

  9. thanks for support everyone! we had a bit of a rocky launch because of a few asshole flippers hacking their cart and tons of orders coming through just before 11... we had to pull the store down last minute and cancel everything. we really want to make it fair to everyone so our fulfilment team were (still are!) going through orders to cancel multiples... and in the event robert, eric or michelle are reading this - i will absolutely cancel every order you place with us moving forward

  12. Hey folks, I wanted to raise some awareness about a Discogs scam that almost got me. Earlier this week I was about to buy the Bad Religion box set from a seller on Discogs who looked legit. Almost 300 items sold, high percentage of positive feedback, and appeared to be located in the UK. Price was below average but not so amazing that it was too good to believe. Figured the guy was just looking for a quick sale. DM'd the guy with a few questions about condition and shipping and he got back to me quickly. In hindsight, I should have asked for pictures too. Anyway, I put my order through and go to pay. I get an error. I try again and again over the course of an hour then I get a message from the seller saying "hey, is something wrong with the order?". I told him I was having issues with the Discogs payment at checkout and he gives me an email address to send payment direct via PayPal. Not proud of myself but I almost did it. I actually tried to send the payment through but thank fuck it was flagged by PayPal security as a high dollar value international transfer and didn't go through. I go into PayPal's support chat to figure out what's up. Meanwhile I keep getting messages from the Discogs guy asking where the payment is. PayPal confirmed that they flagged the transfer and asked me to confirm I wanted to send the money. At the time I said yes and they said I was now clear to send at my discretion. This is when it dawned on me that there was no option to send the money Goods and Services - only Friends and Family. Red flag goes up and I messaged the Discogs dude that I am not going to send almost $900 CAD as Friends and Family - we need to figure something else out. I wake up the next morning and my order is cancelled. Discogs guy is no longer responding to my messages. At first I'm bummed that I missed a good deal and I'm mad that the Discogs checkout screwed me over. Then I think about it a little more and start Googling the same type of scenario. I'm pretty sure it's this scam: https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/951380?page=1&message_id=9630935 People's accounts are being hacked, items are posted for sale, their payment settings deliberately disabled, and then the scammer messages for a Friends and Family PayPal transfer. The other reason I think this is what happened to me is because PayPal customer support told me the guy's name tied to the PayPal account. I googled it afterwards and it's a Ukrainian name. So now I think I dodged an expensive bullet but wanted to share my near miss with others. Be smart about paying for stuff and maybe change your Discogs password. Stay safe out there.

  14. @thischarminghamHas a 1234 GO! avatar and is from Oakland. @lbw87 Has the pictures, and also has this listed on Deadformat: @thischarmingmanIs apparently named Stevo, which closely resembles the stage name of American entertainer, television personality, and stunt performer Stephen Gilchrist Glover, known professionally as Steve-O. @lbw87 Is from New Jersey, which is right next to PA. @lbw87 Is likely Bam Margera.

  16. Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but I figured everyone who sells would like to know. If you haven't checked Discogs yet today, you wouldn't have noticed the pop up alerting everyone that invoices are no longer going to be a thing. The invoice price you would pay at a later date after a sale will now be deducted immediately after your buyer pays. No more forgetting you still own a couple dollars to Discogs; it'll all be done at once. Much more convenient in my opinion !

  19. Just wanted to do this off topic post because I know most people will appreciate the heads up and maybe missed it mentioned in a couple of other threads. But yeah, dark theme is live. Scroll to the bottom of any page and find the 'theme' link and click it, profit! Big thanks to @danny for seeing this through. He asked if y'all could click on a few ads to pump a few bucks into board it would be great. No idea if there is a way to donate a few bucks or not. Go ahead and delete this thread in a few days or now if it's that big of a deal...

  22. I mean, someone from the music scene actually died and a music-driven forum is taking a moment to share their thoughts and say a few words about it. It would take a real piece of shit to stumble in and make that moment about their own personal beef. Reminder: you were banned for a week because you’re an easily-titled troll with a temper tantrum. That’s a personal problem. You don’t get to take that out on the forum’s staff. Instead of trying to start shit on a Sunday, maybe go outside and enjoy some fresh air for once. Or call up one of the very few people who can somehow tolerate you in person, and refresh yourself on how human interactions should work. The internet has rotted your brain. Absolute embarrassment of a man.

  26. Some AK3 news that may be of interest: I saw them with Bad Religion the other day in Philly and got to talk to Derek and Dan out behind the venue for a little bit. Derek told me a Good Mourning vinyl reissue is in the works for the 20th anniversary next year. He said they were thinking of doing it as a double 10" or maybe even an expanded version with the demos and stuff. Said he wanted it to be a deluxe thing. I asked him to lobby for the inclusion of that leaked "Angel Alcohol" / "Everywhere I Wanna Go" demo, and he said he'd try. He also told me the actual title of that song was "So Good To Be Here". Just some info I thought people here may appreciate.

  34. Little known fact for the longtime fans: after recording their debut LP, the band hadn’t officially settled on a name for it. With the release date looming, Jesse Lacey was actually the one who came up with Your Favorite Weapon as a direct nod to the weaponization of leftist ideologies through Covid vaccines and pandemic fear-mongering. The title was accepted by all members of the band through a unanimous vote.

  38. Well here I am living this discussion out. My 4 year old and I made the Seth Meyers appearance our first video of the morning and followed it up with the H5Six record release show. Since I only occasionally dip a toe in the hardcore pool I had never given them a chance before hearing “Mystery”. I downloaded the album and didn’t like much else, finding it akin to when Minus The Bear got a new electronic toy and shoehorned awkwardly into everything. Subsequently I was riding with him in the truck and played “Mystery” and he was JAMMIN in the car seat. I was making a turn as the song ended and “Blackout” started. I went to change it to something else (he also really loves Fiddlehead) and he got upset and said, “Hey! I liked that!” So we listened to the rest and he loved almost all of it. Now since that day we listen to most of the album every day at some point. He’s in love. “We need to get this record, da-da!” he says. And so I wait for this black repress to go back up. Preorder from Flight 13 is the backup plan.

  40. Was bummed about this too. Especially considering we have 16 songs to play with here, the fact the decided to go this route was a bit odd. Though, I'll admit, I dont have any idea the cost implications of going the half-speed 45RPM master route vs. typical 33 1/3 RPM with a side D etching. But here's how they could've easily, again taking financials out of the picture, went with the 45RPM config (below). A couple pros I get from going this route: A Colossal Wreck & Desperate Pleasures get together, as they were meant to be 3 of 4 sides are almost right at that 12 minute side optimal length. Even SIDE C at 14 minutes is within the maximum SIDE A 1. Dark Distance 2:54 2. Sly 2:31 3. Planet Shit 3:57 4. Post-Boredom 3:16 SIDE A RUNTIME 12:38 SIDE B 5. A Colossal Wreck 2:28 6. Desperate Pleasures 3:12 7. All This And War 3:11 8. Thing With Feathers 3:38 SIDE B RUNTIME 12:29 SIDE C 9. Hostile Architecture 2:37 10. AWOL 2:11 11. The Whip 2:30 12. White Void 3:35 13. Distress Rehearsal 3:13 SIDE C RUNTIME 14:06 SIDE D 14. sexsexsex 3:28 15. People Verses 3:33 16. We Go Together 5:03 SIDE D RUNTIME 12:04 PS: this took like 30 minutes of my time. For absolutely no reason, dont hate.

  41. I'll try to keep this short, so let's go. About a year ago I was fed up with intl shipping prices and the new EU tax law, that you have to pay tax (it's 27% here in Hungary) on everything you order, it is especially disgsuting that the amount is calculated on the item + shipping total, so basically a 20-dollar record with the least awful scenario of a 20-dollar shipping would end up in my hands for a whopping $50,8 which came to the point that collecting is becoming unsustainable. This is when I dug into mail forwarding services, and after about 5-6 shipments without any issues I can confidently say that it's a game changer. Disclaimer: please look into it yourself with your country details etc. So the process is I'm using ship7.com who has a warehouse in Delaware (tax free US state), I ship my records there mostly for free or cheap media mail, I have up to 60 days free period (after that it has a small fee)to wait for multiple packages and then I ship them out to Hungary together for way cheaper than it would be directly from the labels/stores would be, not to mention you can get US indie exclusives, get stuff from stores that only ship to the US etc.. (Also, this is up to how rulefollower you are you can play with declared value, but then again it might be risky, so it's on you to do it or not, but alone saving on shipping is huge, saving on tax is enermous). Obviously inserting a middleman is always a risk, as you have no help from the place you bought the record anymore after if arrives to the warehouse, but I was at a point of either this risk or selling off my collection. the rant stops now, here are some pictures of my last 10-record (teamed up with a friend for HIL, that's why only 9 records pictured) shipment and a sheet about the savings.
