    I just wish there were a few more up tempo tracks like First Drum Set. That song is great. The rest sound very sleepy

    whoa got a reaction from bear801 in Video Game OSTs v2.0   
    I think it really depends on what clicks with you, and sounds like you know what works for you. Games are cutting edge shit, yet you hear some of the blandest, orchestral splurdges being wallpaper for the game when both really should be marrying together. There are so many great examples of unique OSTs, like the ones you mentioned, but it's because the composer brings their own sound to it; HEALTH's Max Payne, Disasterpeace, Journey OST, GRIS, Silent Hills… It's interesting when you see devs working with popular artists, like Japanese Breakfast and (British) Sea Power, they get something fantastic then. I dunno, I had a pint and I'm at my keyboard!

    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...

    whoa reacted to dawhizz in Genuine Q: How Much of Your Vinyl Gets Played?   
    I'll step up with a reasonably genuine response before the T-swizzle gifs.
     
    Been collecting 25ish years technically, but more "seriously" for probably 15-20 years.  I'm sitting at about 1500 in my collection.  I managed to get most of what I wanted before prices/scarcity went way overboard, so I'm at the point where I have about 15 older records on my discogs wishlist that I'm convinced I'll probably never own because of price/scarcity and most of my current record collecting is newly released music.  I still go to record stores hoping this is the day I'll run across that copy of This Desert Life for $20 bucks or something, but I find myself leaving empty handed more and more. I feel like I've reached a plateau in that respect, which is frustrating I guess but fine - it means I have a lot of what I want. 
     
    I would say close to 100% of my collection has been on my turntable at some point.  I've never really been a sealed or variant collector except for the Felix Culpa (check the avatar yo) and the odd album I really love where a cool variant/remastered album/etc. came out later.  I have a shelf of test presses and I'll actually spin the 50% or so where it's only vinyl version of the album I have.  I have a cabinet below the stereo where I put new purchases and it's pretty rare that something goes upstairs (where my collection is) before I listen to it at least once - for some reason I find myself paranoid that I'll buy an album and there will be an issue with it or it won't even be the right music on it and if I don't listen to it, by the time I do it will be too late to do anything about it.  Now I'm married with two kids (brag), so you're comment that your free time vanishes isn't lost on me.  My kids like music and I've had music on the stereo whenever I can for as long as they can remember, so I can often get away with putting something on during dinner or on a weekend when we are all hanging out or playing or whatever (and if I can get Encanto or Frozen or whatever out of the stereo), but I'm obviously limited in what I can put on in terms of intensity/profanity.  I don't listen to anything THAT intense, but there are certainly things that I wouldn't play when my kids are around or that would cause my wife to suggest I turn to something else.  I also can't really play something brand new unless I'm certain the content is OK (found that out the hard way a couple of times).  That type of album also isn't ideal for listening to after everyone's gone to sleep, so they might sit in my "queue" for a while until those blissful few times when everyone else is gone.  Which happens maybe 1-2 times a month and I definitely have to make it a priority to listen to them.  But if I know I'm going to have an afternoon to myself, I get a little excited (lame) because I know I have the opportunity to listen to certain stuff I can't generally spin with the kids around and at a volume that would not otherwise be allowed.
     
    I do make an effort to thumb through my collection on a fairly regular basis (maybe 2-3 times a month) to see if I feel like listening to anything I haven't spun in a while.  If I haven't listened to it, I'll try to figure out if I have a good reason and if I don't I should probably listen to it to try to figure out if I even need to still own it.  I have tried to sell some stuff recently (with pretty good success) and when COVID first started I did do a pretty heavy weeding of records so that I have about two shelves worth I'll trade into the local shop when I get around to it.  I have a very small collection of 7" and I can't really imagine bringing those out to listen to anytime soon, but it's bands I like and they don't take up much space, so I'll keep them around.  Anything I really like (like, say, MCR's Conventional Weapons set) I've since just purchased digitally and I'll do that if I want to listen.
     
    I do have some stuff I bought before you could easily listen to every album to see if you like it and maybe I put on and didn't listen to the whole thing, but I keep around because I think if I revisit it maybe it will click.  Prog rock and old folk records were my two go-tos when I was studying in college/law school. I don't find myself in the mood for that stuff as much anymore when I get time to myself, though I still genuinely enjoy it, so I'll get back around to listening to it eventually, I think.  
     
    There's certainly an argument to be made that given my current lifestyle, vinyl collecting no longer makes all that much sense, and I completely understand that argument except that it's the best and I love it.  Plus, as I think I said in the other thread you mentioned, if I didn't collect vinyl I would have to take up coin collecting or parkour or serial killing or something and I really like listening to music and supporting musical artists, so I guess it's as good a thing to waste my money and time on as any.

    whoa reacted to Derek™ in I need some advice on my record collection   
    Had to quote this for truth.  That street runs both ways too – owning 20 variants of one record or dropping $1,000+ on a super limited, signed, promotional copy of something doesn’t necessarily translate into “I’m a more important person” or “I’m a bigger fan”.  I know that vinyl enthusiasts tend to have the frailest egos and require more validation than just about any hobbyists out there, but I’ve never considered variant hoarding or dropping big bucks on a coveted release to magically rank you higher in fandom, or something.  Contrary to how much dick swinging comes with the hobby, it’s already been said in this thread: you should collect because it’s fun.  The minute it stops becoming fun, it’s time to step back or consider opting out.  One of the quickest ways to lose that fun is to fret and sweat any corner bend or seam split.
     
    (Also in case it reads this way, I’m not accusing OP of hysteria over corner dings and seam splits.  I fully acknowledge that some of his orders are beyond playable when they show up.  And that really sucks.  The winded point above is more applicable to the countless people who want to exchange or get a refund on new records that arrive with a little bit of ring wear or a dinged corner.)
     
    So much this.  Believe it or not, that’s what it boils down to.  Or should.  What do people do when they enjoy an album that has never been pressed on vinyl?  Just not acknowledge it?  Music first and foremost, always.  Give me a shelf full of quality bands and releases on “boring” black vinyl, with the occasional bit of sleeve scuff or folded corner.  For me, that will always be worlds more desirable than a stash of limited edition garbage /150, in pristine shape.  Even if said junk has insane collectibility or resale value, if it’s a pile of Enjoy the Ride releases, I’d see no real reason to own it.
