Thanks guys!

That Jamie Thomas deck is my favorite one I ever had. I got it in 2001ish, held off skating on it for a really long time and finally broke down and used it about 2 years later.

I used to have the JT smith board. Same color way, too. Man, that was one of my favorite boards ever. If they ever do a reissue of it I'll buy it in a heartbeat.

My record room is almost done, here is an updated picture since the last time I posted anything.

And a photo of my rug:

And then my last project to complete but I ran out of old junk 45s

This looks great!

The rug is throwing me off a bit though. It's the same pattern as in the movie The Shining, which is fantastic! The left side of the pattern seems to line up perfectly on the end, but the right of the pattern is skewed and doesn't line up....what's going on there?

So good.....even used they go for a pretty penny....would be cool to have that and a muska silhouette mint on the wall....such iconic decks

Garagedayscollection on Instagram. JT has been auctioning off old shit he's had in storage all these years. Yesterday he found the Rattray pentagram, Thomas cross pair of boards. Fucking sick.

Man, believe me, it drives me insane. The rug itself just was made that way, I guess who/whatever sewed it did it crooked. It was the first thing i noticed when I took it out of the package. It doesn't bother me when Im sitting here and listening though and that's all that matters to me. 

 

However, I would be lying if I said I wasn't looking for a new, pattern-less rug to replace it already.

I honestly think it just depends how you looks at the pattern.  Once your eye gets to the middle of the rug, you can't tell which way the pattern is going exactly.  You could look at it as going at an angle even.  That's just me at least.

Getting too many records and swapping in a few different components so I had to make some changes to the setup.  I decided to actually get a rack for components and now have moved my record cleaning station to on top of the Kallax.

Love this! Where did you get the wall display shelving?

it looks kinda like a Jenny Saville painting.... would she be doing stuff for Ikea? or is someone ripping off her style?

I think you read that wrong, the wall display shelving is from Ikea, they were not talking about the paiting. No idea who it is from though.

I took advantage of all the Hastings going out of business and scored these racks for $100. If you've got the room I highly recommend pillaging a Hastings for some. The drawers each have two rows. The bottom ones weirdly aren't tall enough for LPs (they're like a half inch too short), but they fit three rows of 7"s pretty perfectly. Very stoked on this shit...

Oh man. If I had a Hastings nearby I'd be on that shit like nobody's business.

Spent the last couple days remodeling my office / record listening / storage area. Still a couple smaller things to do, like waiting for my 7" wooden boxes, new speakers and a couple more frames to arrive, but this is pretty much it.
