  1. I don’t know about that: E3 was cancelled and it’s June 9-11. Apple moved their June developer’s conference to online only. A lot of Gay Pride events which traditionally take place in June have been cancelled or postponed. I think it’s just a matter of being so far out that organizers of May/June events are taking a wait-and-see approach for now, but it seems weird to me to go to the effort of postponing something in April only to move it two months later. Again, most of the stuff I’ve seen postponed (rather than flat out cancelled) is up in the air in terms of rescheduling. (Though I guess much later than June and it would practically overlap with Black Friday...)
  2. I don’t want to be an alarmist but am I the only one that thinks June 20 is optimistic? I'm surprised they didn’t just postpone until “summer” without giving a specific date yet.
  3. So, it appears there was a since-deleted tweet that said the whole event was being moved to June 20: http://exclaim.ca/music/article/record_store_day_2020_is_about_to_be_postponed Also found a reference to it here; http://www.noise11.com/news/record-store-day-2020-postponed-until-june-20200313
  4. Allowing online sales was my first thought, I know it breaks all tradition but “desperate times call for desperate measures” and all that...
  5. So I would have thought it ridiculous even a week ago but now I’m really wondering if coronavirus is going to end up impacting RSD. Long, slow lines and tiny rooms crammed full of people standing shoulder-to-shoulder seems to be exactly what local governments are trying to avoid. Certainly in a city like Seattle or NYC that’s on semi-lockdown, this has got to be something that’s under consideration?
  6. Can I get tomorrow’s lotto numbers??
  7. I’m not a fan but wasn’t there some Giant Type O Negative box a few years back that goes for crazy amounts now?
  8. https://www.davidbowie.com/blog/2020/2/19/im-only-dancing-for-record-store-day-2020 Nice to see some Bowie releases on RSD, for a change! Now if only we get three Kinks 7"s and some random Flaming Lips stuff nobody wants or asked for I can get some peace... (And maybe some random 90s alterna-soundtrack with pixelated cover art sourced from a CD.)
  9. $200 punk single shipped in a plain yellow envelope, no padding. Crammed into my little 5” x 3” letter box. Needless to say, some slight warping.
  10. They have a point about it being limited, you'll probably only have about 6 months to play it before the chemical reaction makes it unlistenable.
  11. If you keep going back, everything rips off that one blind bluesman who recorded a single acetate from his rocking chair back in 1902.
  12. They have their own pressing plants but they still used Apollo for their lacquers (Third Man did, anyway).
