  1. I just the assumed the message board was in respite care from the gen pop pyschos that frequented its pages. Good to be back though...
  2. If it’s in your budget, I really enjoy my record doctor V. I cleaned records manually with a brush for several years and I regret not getting one of these sooner. If it’s in your budget and you’re a fairly serious collector, it’s worth it in my opinion. If you’re on a tighterbudget or are just getting into collecting, I’d stick with a manual brush until you know you want to upgrade.
  3. With a collection that large and not wanting to sell on discogs, I’d look into contacting a local record store that buys collections. That would be the easiest option. It’s what I would do in your situation anyway
  4. I don't see how this contradicts anything that that's been said (assuming this is in response to my post). I don't recall asking anyone to give a fuck about any "reaction" that I, or anyone else, might have had to someone else's artistic choices. People are still entitled to have these opinions, particularly if its something that resonates with us so emotionally like music can. Again, did you read the part where I said a band can do whatever they want with their music?
  5. I don't know. I'm just not arrogant enough to think I know how everyone thinks and feels. Go eat a burrito.
  6. Actually, I said there are at least two reasonable takes. You should read things a little more closely and you might not have to ask what they mean.
  7. did you miss the part where i said band can do what they want with their music?
  8. No kidding. I don't know why I waded into this muck with folks who seem to confuse "the scene" (the place where people congregate to collectively share their love of someone's art - and apparently their coolness) with the music created by the artist that hits in the places that make us want to join or create a scene in the first place. But hey, lets go stagedive, hi five the band at the merch table while we nosh on a 7 layer burrito. Is that better?
  9. People have to eat. Bands can do what they want with their music. I don't know this song at all really. If it happened to have special meaning to me, it would be a shame that this significance was now psychologically associated with shitty fast food. If we talk of music being this life changing medium (which many of us do), then its perfectly normal for a person who feels this way to be bummed out about the choices a band makes with their rightfully owned music. There are at least two perfectly reasonable takes on this issue depending on your perspective of things.
  10. Yes, I've had far more problems with Interpunk than I ever did with P+P.
  11. 50% off everything at Rad Girlfriend Records https://radgirlfriendrecords.storenvy.com/ Code: WINTERSUX
  12. A bit salty for a 4 song ep, but I pulled the trigger on it.
  13. He came through my neck of the woods (Fort Wayne, IN) back in August. There were no advertisements for it. I just happened to stumble across a note about it in a local newspaper. I think it was about $20 here too. It was a good show. All reggae, no bad brains punk stuff. He did play some of bad brains reggae though, Leaving Babylon & I Love Jah. You can tell HR isn't 100%, if you know what I mean, but much better than he's been in the past. There were about 30 people there. I thought it was worth it.

  15. Totally Monday morning quarterbacking here, but if it was worth selling them separately, they would have. If listing the exact contents of the chest would have gotten better bids, then they would have. This seems like any other label’s “mystery boxes.” Just a very expensive version of it. And, if the right label did this, I probably would be dumb enough to fall for the “what if” possibilities too.
  16. This was my favorite skankin pickle record. I’m in. Thanks for the post.
  17. I think so too. I'm seeing fewer in my releases as well. As someone who likes to purchase and own music (rather than to steal or rent it), the download code is one of the main things that drew me back to purchasing vinyl in the first place. If I am continually confronted with the option to either purchase something twice (vinyl and digital versions of albums), I will probably slowly stop purchasing vinyl. I don't mean that to sound like a whiny "customer is always right" kind of way, but a natural path I will eventually end up going down.
  18. I want to grab this, but I can't stand that Red Scare uses store envy. Shipping is $7 and then there's the $1.99 "handling fee." I've had red scare items in my cart several times and bailed once I got to this part. Ok, rant over.
  19. I never got one either, but a tracking number showed up on my informed delivery that turned out to be the box.
  20. I received mine on saturday and the tracking notification I had on my USPS informed delivery was from NC. It was most likely the box, but I cant say for sure
  21. Damn, didn't expect that Op Ivy to go that fast.
  22. I hope you all get your box sets and they are all worth the wait. That being said, this has by far been my favorite thread to lurk on. I’ve been waiting for Rob Thomas to post a video telling you there was never a box set and for all of you to go fuck yourselves for the grief he got for Smooth.
  23. I got an email from The Comic Bug. They have copies (2 left) signed by members of Joyce Manor. Its salty: $140ish shipped. https://www.ebay.com/itm/294623106456?hash=item4498e7d598:g:sBoAAOSwYIxhswLh Proceeds are going to support The Trevor Project
  24. 30% off in Rancid's store (automatically applied). Not much by way of music, but you can snag Life Won't Wait 4LP for 35ish shipped. https://rancid.store/?utm_source=bm23&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Image+-+https://rancid.store/&utm_content=30%+Off+Online+Shop+Now!&utm_campaign=Rancid+Black+Friday+Promo+2021&_bta_tid=03402341395476395061180513852859039940853606881439900230521272881582654226006895352498980111186773724029
