PO NOW. ALKALINE TRIO. IS THIS THING CURSED?

Recommended Posts

It's honesty revolting for me personally when people go out of their way to advocate being screwed over and cop that defeatist crap. It's like "Keep your spineless, sycophantic, give-up-always, cowardly attitude the fuck away from me". 5-10 dollar markups since 2016 cannot be minimized as "inflation" just like record labels saying it's a measure to fight Discogs-enabled speculation is a total fucking fabrication too. And yet people are gullible enough to buy it.

For example, really glad I bought those Blank Banshee albums. Does the packaging justify them being $30 CAD each? Never in a million years. And the Discogs prices are hovering near 100 bucks. So anyone who thinks we should forego our freedom of speech rights because "that's just the way it is" is welcome to take their own advice and move to Russia while they're at it. You'd be the type of model citizen Putin wants.

To be fair, $30 CAD is only $23ish USD which isn't crazy. But I agree with what you're saying in principle.

 

There is no way (what I'm assuming is) a single LP should cost over $30 even with shipping included. I felt like a dummy paying $32 shipped for a colored, double LP, import just yesterday.

haha Man, those must have been sitting there for so long. Hopefully it wasn't completely destroyed. Nice score though.

Yeah. Only 2 copies of any vinyl in the whole store. I kinda miss digging through the clearance records there.  But it was an easy NM/ VG+ sleeve. Couldn't pass it up.

Wow, so they sold 500 in less than an hour even though it was limited to 2 per customer?

I bought one. I'm sure there were several other fans who bought 1 and the other variants too. I just need the one copy. I'm currently only lacking remains and TA if anyone wants to help a brother round out his ALK3 studio recording collection.
