  1. When you enter into a business arrangement with an organization that puts out statements like: Funko continues to invest in its strategic growth initiatives of maximizing the core business, diversifying the revenue base, growing its Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) channel, and extending its reach into international markets. You’re bound to get forced into maximizing profit at the expensive of creative. This was inevitable but hope the creative folks down there land on their feet.
  2. Second what Scott said! For Plasma they’ll run the tube through a centrifuge to separate plasma and blood, but generally it is just like giving blood. You sit with a needle in your arm for about an hour. Easy peasy. Your first session will usually include an exam and intake process so leave some extra time. The financial component varies by location and organization. If the goal is income it’s worth researching that if you haven’t already.
  3. My wife got into the pre-sale, spent four hours in the queue, finally selected seats, only to have site hang at checkout, twice! It is what it is. Hope folks here are able to get tickets somehow and best wishes to parents trying to explain this fiasco to their 9-13 year old kids right now.
  4. Can someone help me navigate these Sault LPs and EPs? I like the group but feel like they have a dozen different physical releases and they are always priced at like $50. Are these ALL new? What’s the best way to get at the back catalogue? If anyone has thoughts let me know.
  5. I’ll buy it from you if you want to just order a black. Save the exchange hassle. Let me know.
  6. I have the reissue from a while back but have always thought about grabbing a boot for the OG cover so I’ll keep an eye out locally. I’m always amazed out how widely opinions vary on their albums. I’m in for everything from Lullabies back, but nothing from Era forward gets me too excited, despite great songs on those records. I saw them in Montreal in the Lullabies tour and it’s still a top 5 show for me, which I think is where my love for Lullabies comes from.
  7. I’d like to see the methodology here. Maybe Colorado is the state most interested in siding or fetish wear.
  8. I’m not sure this will get too many folks stoked since there has already been a bunch of limited reissues. But as someone who has constantly put off grabbing this due to its ubiquity I’m pretty pumped.
  9. I’m traveling this week and am unsure if I can pay attention. Assuming anything isn’t limited to one, or you don’t need this, I’d love some help. DM me if you could nab a copy for me. I’ll pay for shipping twice.
  10. I was referring to the color, but really I was being hyperbolic about that color variants being “better” because it make the joke funnier in my opinion. totally subjective.
  11. Sounds like this thread might be heading the direction of the Bosstones thread! Could be wrong, that’s just the impression that I get.
  12. Glad we are back to fighting in a Brand New thread. No lie though, I’m still waiting for the Bosstones thread to be unlocked and see that argument shake out.
  13. Of course it’s an auction for charity. Serves me right for being snarky! It’ll be waaaaaay too rich for my blood but I am curious to see that final price.
  14. I hope it’s expensive records that seem exclusive followed by better versions in cheaper configurations later.
  15. I bought the mirror box subscription and I JUST got shipping confirmation for those two. assume they are coming soon.
  16. The thing that feels missing from all of this talk is the cost / benefit ratio. Ben almost certainly flips enough that a Schedule C makes sense and is worth the hassle of tracking expenses and itemizing deductions. For the vast majority of folks it probably won’t be worth it. Just report the 1099 as income. If you make $3,000 selling records this year you owe like $150 bucks, or more likely, you’ll have $150 less in your refund.
  17. Can’t pretend to know what is going on here but I’ll say that sobriety is hard man and one of its curses is the clarity arrives before the coping mechanisms. I Hope with a little time and space they can work it out.
  18. I’m not sure that is true. Gifts aren’t taxable and the law explicitly states “commercial transactions”. I’m not clear how they are defining that but it could be possible to use Venmo and PayPal and not encounter this change.
  19. Keep the distinction between reported and unreported sales in mind. Generally you have always obligated to report all income, most people just don’t and practically, it’s fine, even if it is technically a violation. This new rule applies to “certain” online retailers and if you exceed $600 in sales, they will send a 1099 to you and the government. You do not have to guess or even necessarily track you will be notified explicitly when you’ve met the criteria for reporting.
