well like last year RSD this year I bought 100ish records as gifts for friends and they were all denied and I did not want to screw a mom and pop shop by returning them so ebay is my only option.   do not get mad as this is not an a-hole flipper but a good vinyl guy being good to other vinylers who may have missed out on these.  ill only start the auctions at 2x the retail price to make up for shipping, fees, and supplies.  ill be posting links in the near future once I get it all situated.

Mods, please swap 1 Tug for 1 GatorPrideSonnn

RSD was awesome for me, I've been on both sides of the counter but this was my first experience managing a record store for RSD. We gave out donuts and coffee for the morning crowd, had local artists perform from open until close. Raffled off concert tickets, new cds, new and used LPs including a gold copy of the Drive soundtrack, brushes and cleaning fluid, a carrying case for 45s filled with rare 45s, some rare Linda ronstadt records (it's an inside joke unless you have been to my shop, we got a collection containing every Linda Ronstadt record or single on any format including 8 track and also variants on just about every country of release from Japan to Argentina, so we did a test pressing and an import picture sleeve and a picture disc LP for the raffle). It was humbling to see that many people having a great time and buying physical media. Sales were up a sizable amount from the previous year, so I'm beaming with pride. I oversaw all the ordering and spent countless hours prepping and it was well worth all the effort, and my staff was on point the whole time and leading up to the event, I could not have done it without them. I rewarded them with gourmet pizza. I in turn was also rewarded because at the end of the day I was still able to grab the Tim Armstrong, Dessa 7" and The Grant Green Slick set. I did snipe one thing and it was the Sundays but I had the other 2 and I was damned if I was going to miss this one but I paid sticker price.  Luckily the other local had a Bert Jansch, so all I missed out on from my list was the Gene Clark and I think I have a line on a leftover. Fantastic experience all and all but I am exhausted.

If anyone bought the Quicksand - Triptych Continuum release, did you get a download card inside? The sticker indicated there was one but nothing in mine. If anyone has mp3s of the songs I'd love to get a hold of them.

Epitaph is offering a free download if you provide them info about your purchase.

Called all three local stores to inquire about leftovers and specifically the Taylor Swift ones. All got cleaned out w/ the exception of Fearless at one. I snagged it. But crap...now to track down self-titled and 1989 and non-flipper prices.
