    Eliminator Jr. got a reaction from tvham in I just got one of the best deals of my life.   
    I really see how people get excited about purchasing a record they love and been dying to get for quite a while, but I have to disagree about spending TWOHUNDRED DOLLARS for an LP being a good deal. It's record craziness and beyond. I am happy for each and everyone of you who payed A LOT of money for records they wanted, but this is not the right thread for this..

    No matter how much a record is 'worth', I'll never consider spending 50+ bucks for an LP a good deal.

    I'm pretty baffled about how I was the most excited in years for two old records being rereleased and now with new music being teased, I honestly couldn't care less about it.. Post 'Moon' Modest Mouse just don't do anything for me at all.

    Yes, silence! How dare you helping someone out. This is the wrong place, silence!
    Now everyone get back to posting links to people selling overpriced tapes on the second hand market.

    I don't think its wrong! that I want to sell! ALL the albums someday at a reasonable price (after The Powers That B comes out) for a reasonable price. ($200!?) I paid $20 for Exmil! I want to see all the albums go to someone in a bundle. sorry. not trying to be "a jerk". I'm not FLIPPING the LP. I just wanted two, I reached out to people assuming I wasn't even going to be able to get 1! :-)

    Most pictures in this thread make me feel like "Fuck it would be awesome to collect variants" but also like "Fuck why does my wife need so many purses and pairs of shoes" and then I think to myself "we are exactly the same" and I cry

    Since vinyl-enthusiasts and cats-enthusiasts seem to be pretty much the same thing around here, I figured I'm just gonna post a picture of myself with the cats on me lap. It's a pretty cool cat.

    49 pages in and this thread finally starts making sense.
     
    White Whale:
    Bohren & der Club of Gore. Sunset Mission
    About 25 tests floating around, never made it to an official release
     
    Out of price range:
    Weakling. Dead As Dreams
    Around 200-300$ a piece, mostly pretty bad condition..someday..
     
    Waiting for the good price:
    Wolves In The Throne Room. Diadem of 12 Stars
    Goes for 60-100$ which is fair. Waiting for the right pressing+condition+price tag

    Former white whale:
    Pulp - Different Class
    First pressing with the reversible artwork inserts...took several years to find.
     
    White whale CD:
    Bat For Lashes ‎– Who Stole Petretski's Thunder?
    Don't think it has ever been sold on discogs. Only one user reports owning it.
     
    It's complicated:
    Emmy the Great - Edward EP
    This one isn't entirely a white whale. i have the EP itself on vinyl, but what I cannot find for the life of me is the Rough Trade pre-order edition, which includes a short story book "The Wet and Windy Moors and other trials by E.L. Moss." Never seen it online anywhere. 
     
    Readily available, but nowhere near my price range:
    Warpaint - Exquisite Corpse (on blue vinyl...only a hundred pressed but there's usually one on discogs for an unsurprisingly high price)
    Beck - Sea Change (this has been pressed three times...its continued scarcity/high price confounds me)
     
    White unicorn (doesn't exist but wish it did):
    Asobi Seksu - s/t

    It's a "glow in the dark"-colored vinyl and, that being said, one of the very worst sounding records I ever had. The rest of your post sounds like you don't want your OP's ridiculous price to drop and continue to feel superior to anyone who doesn't have it. You're gonna have a bad time finding friends here with this mindset.

    Theres no way this is not digital. It would be waaaay too expensive to cut a limited quantity variant repress all analogue from the original analogue master. As long as you buy nothing but 60s-70s first presses or mfsl, 99% of your collection are digital.

    There'll always be people complaining about colored vinyl, regardless of what it actually sounds like. I've made some disappointing experiences with colored vinyl myself, but many people (audiophiles?) tend to say it's shit, just because its colored.
    I bought black copies of both albums to listen to and colored ones for the sake of having two of my favorite albums on awesome looking vinyl, but it turned out they do sound just as good as the black ones.

    180g black sounds flawless. No surface noise, no crackles, no pops, nothing. I'm listening to my records with headphones 90% of the time, so I'm very conscious about every kind of flaw that might come up while listening to vinyl. This pressing is one of the most perfect in my collection.
