  1. As someone who has undoubtedly sold almost as many limited edition Vinyl Me Please exclusives as the company itself, where do you see the future of both the forums and VMP headed?
  2. I bought the 7"s and told OP that "subtlety" is not VC's "strong suit". They arrived today and were packed perfectly and play better than Mint. I don't have a camera but here is proof that I got them and am happy.
  3. I have heard whispers that they only sold 500 of the 1,000 copies and will very much maybe perhaps definitely not be making more than 500 now. So, in short, the box is confirmed to be limited to 500 now and you will need want to pay extra on eBay now.
  4. If you disregard everything the main vinyl dude at Warner has publicly said, it's possible.
  5. Download cards add an unnecessary level of complication and stress to reselling limited edition vinyl. Whenever a customer emails me to complain that their download card expired or wasn't included with their $150 record, I send them this boilerplate response:
  6. It seems like Warner is "promoting" and selling this repress directly to vendors as a distributor and not promoting and selling it direct to the customer, so there'd be no need for a promo campaign to announce the repress. It'd be the vendors' job to promote this new product they're buying from Warner. Whether some sites sincerely thought this was a repress or whether they were engaging in some sly marketing tactics is unknown. Weight wise, it's supposed to be 140 grams but it's possible there is variation and some copies might come close to 180. A lot simpler of a release/repress if you just ignore all the speculation and go by what the dude from Warner shared on Instagram.
  7. Bullmoose and all the other places are still waiting to receive their stock from whatever distributor found these extra copies. Looks like Music Direct got their stock in today so you should hear something from Bullmoose in the next few days.
  8. I thought the 3 episodes before the finale were fine to great. Everything else was really bad for me. The increasing amount of layers of abstraction from what was once an interesting metaphor have created a really bad, stupid Matrix sequels-esque literal/metaphorical-hybrid that makes sense in spurts but, as a whole, is just philosophical and character alphabet soup. I really hope they streamline things and focus on a strong story in season 3 and let the trick of multiple time lines take a back seat. /end negative opinion
  9. Some of my best record sales/buys took 3-6 years to complete. Also, drugs.
  10. Oh yeah! I forgot that each co-label got their own portion of color copies, so that was a good call checking the other labels' web stores out.
  11. It's not unheard of for either PIAPTK or Baby Gas Mask to slowly leak out stray copies of sold out pressings, so I'd keep tabs on both of their sites and Baby Gas Mask's Discogs store. The price may be a bit higher than the original price but it might also be lower than what flippers ask for on eBay/Discogs.
  12. I can see that. I think both a loose attachment and a hyper tight attachment help with this record. If you're not a huge AF fan and casually browsing Spotify's new releases playlists for your new music, which is filled with major label D-level/AAA artists, the album isn't wildly different than anything else they offer as "rock" or "indie" music and maybe it's better. If you really really love AF, you can look at the record in a way where you think "Hey, this song is so terrible...that it's now good!" If you're in the middle, you know too much about AF's discography to think this matches up and you probably are too busy listening to other music to dedicate hours to trying and liking it. I am sincere though when I say that I think it's a bad album but that it is cool that people can discuss it and think about it this much, which is much more than albums that are better.
