i've mentioned this to you several times before - but i only mentioned "not buying new records" as far as the beginning record collector is concerned.

my point was that a new collector can amass and enjoy a greater collection by buying used vintage vinyl quicker and much more cheaply than only buying brand new releases.

ergo - that was only my advice for someone new to the game. don't buy new records. buy more used vintage.

that's just my personal opinion of a way. it's much easier to love buying records when you're only paying $5 or less a piece as opposed to $20 a piece.

also re: RSD - i have a good enough relationship with my local shops i don't actually have to participate in the "black friday madness" (which is bullshit - agreed. who wants to fight through a crowded shop with a bunch of noobs?). i just have to waltz in and pick up the 2 records i want that are sitting behind the counter for me :smoke:

what if the point isn't to amass a huge collection? quality over quantity,,,

i can buy >$5 records but they'd be like egbert humperdinck sings lounge. if i want a new album, one that i like, what other option is there than to buy at the amount the price is set?

I'm Hardcore 04-18-2014 12:49 AM

for what it's worth, RSD is a crock of shit. turning vinyl collecting into some kind of fetishism is kind of gross, if you ask me

I'm Hardcore 04-18-2014 12:55 AM

i dont want to start an argument here btw. it's just how i feel

Shallowed 04-18-2014 03:45 AM

Yeah I agree, it's just another way that the surge of interest in vinyl over the last decade has been exploited.

So you're saying only brand new music is worth listening to?

Either that or you must be trolling.

slunken 04-18-2014 05:58 AM

Speaking of lounge I just got introduced to the world of private lounge. Holy smokes.

The exploding boy 04-18-2014 08:37 AM

I haven't bought a record since 2002 i think. I went full mp3 then and never looked back.

vinyl still only represents a miniscule fraction of the music purchasing people do even if it is up from a decade ago. It's still a major struggle to keep a record store in business. I guess I don't understand what the big deal is if once a year these businesses get to have a big promotional thing to get people to come out and buy shit?

AndySlash 04-18-2014 04:36 PM

the first couple record store days were reasonable and enjoyable to share with the other folks in the know. since then the thing has become way out of control. i still maintain that if this was about the record store, they would produce enough copies of the various releases that anyone could walk into the store at 5pm and find what they're looking for instead of having to wait in line for hours just to have a *chance* at one of the 3 copies that record store is allotted, if they got any at all. yes, the limited items get the people in the door, but what good does it do to frustrate those who don't get what they're interested in on the ONE day a year they actually try to shop there?

anyway, like slunken i've built a rapport with a couple local shops who will hook me up with the few things i'm interested in this year, largely because they want to make sure their regular customers have a chance to get what they're hoping for. i'll be dropping off a case of beer for those guys, and then i'll be going to 2 stores who opened just recently and as a result won't have ANY RSD material on hand. i'll be happy to spend my money at those places this year.

no. but what am i to do when i want a record of a new band? most new band vinyl (say, i dunno, thermals a place to bury strangers, etc), even used, is upwards to $15. maybe i just don't live in a big enough city to find deafheaven vinyls for less than that??

MusicMan4 04-18-2014 10:08 PM

i bought a vinyl once

AndySlash 04-18-2014 10:16 PM

but did you like it?

MusicMan4 04-18-2014 10:28 PM

It was good vinyl

D. 04-19-2014 11:28 PM

I only got two RSD releases and picked up a few more for a good price.

$27 got me:

Beatles - A Hard Day's Night
Diarrhea Planet - Aloha 7"
The Julie Ruin - Brightside/In the Picture 7"
Lydia Loveless - Mile High/Blind 7" [translucent green]
Thermals - More Parts Per Million
Thermals - No Culture Icons 7"

slunken 04-19-2014 11:32 PM

D. 04-19-2014 11:33 PM

slunken 04-19-2014 11:33 PM

slunken 04-19-2014 11:34 PM

i had the "hoppin hot dog deal" which was one hot dog, a bag of chips, a drink and an easter toy for $1.99

D. 04-19-2014 11:34 PM

slunken 04-19-2014 11:35 PM

(i gave the toy to a passing little kid)

D. 04-19-2014 11:37 PM

this is what the one down the street from me looked like a long time ago; it's still just as big but they use only maybe half of it
