    Some dude in Costa Mesa is unloading his (or an old record store's?) collection. He's selling each record for five bucks. There were some LPs I paid too much for in the past.

    Anyway, just picked up:
    some repress of A Love Supreme
    a Lenny Bruce album
    and the soundtrack to The Shining.

    The Shining soundtrack is going for at least $40 on discogs.
    Mazxy star was nice and dreamy robightm crowd wouldn't follow no photo request. First time in the green room. Mmm free beer and wine.glad I got to see them Cruz I missed Coachella 3012

    Bored on a Saturday night question:

    Any of you got a record that you have no reason to own (duplicate, a comp where you have all the tracks on individual releases, shitty album) but that you'll never get rid of due to an awesome story or sentimental reason? Tell me your story.

    This came up in my mind because I just put on my copy of Weirdo Rippers by No Age. I own the first five EPs and thus have no reason to have a copy of Weirdo Rippers in addition. However, when I was just head over heels for the band, I went to Ooga Booga, a tiny artsy store in LA's Chinatown where the band would frequently put their shit. This was well after all the early stuff had sold out, but I had a feeling I'd be able to find a copy of Weirdo Rippers there, back when I didn't have the EPs and really wanted to be able to spin some of those songs. Lo and behold, I see the bootleg cover that was the album's release, a white sleeve with a badly cut and badly pasted small version of the album art (black and white) off-center in the front. I grabbed the record and was distraught to find that there was no actual record inside the empty sleeve. I asked the dude at the counter what the deal was, and he told me he could hold the sleeve and see if he could track down the record for me. A week later, I dropped by to see if they had any luck with the search. The clerk handed me the sleeve, now with a record in it. I pulled it out and noticed a chunk missing out of the lead-in groove. He said, "Yeah, dude, Dean told me he found this in his closet and when he grabbed it his dog bit that out. Sorry man, but I'll take two bucks off." It didn't hurt the play, and it's one of the coolest records I own even if I have every song from it in different places.

    This is a good question and I've been giving it some thought over the last few days. I have a ton of these records. First one I'll mention is Andy Gibb's first record, Flowing Rivers. A fluffy little piece of disco-pop, the only track I ever play is "I Just Want to Be Your Everything." And I play it over & over again. I'm not even sure I've ever even played the other side of the record. Something about it that I just can't put my finger on, but I fucking love it. Long ago I convinced Jennie of its merit and it's become a bit of an inside joke for us as well as legitimately being one of "our" songs. What we don't joke about, though, is how staggeringly smooth & groovy that track is. The production is astounding.

    Look at how coked out he is here:

    I've got like five $.99 copies of Gene Simmons solo record because my grandpa was the conductor of the choir on some tracks so his name is on the back but I'm Bernard Daniel Bollinger III so we have the same name. Just kinda cool.

    I also have like all the originals and like 2 represses of Throbbing Gristle albums because that is literally the first section I try and find in every record store. I've got 3 copies of D.O.A. the Third and Final Report just because I got the Italian version and the Industrial version and the repress. I just like how on the Italian version the vinyl is cut so that each track looks equal length on the record surface. And the UK version I like having because I imagine Ian Curtis having the same one hahah. And the repress because it sounds good.

    Question on maintenance for everyone. Do you use outer plastic sleeves for all vinyl art or just select older more worn covers?

    Not entirely sure what you mean, but every record I own is in a plastic sleeve. The only records I have are for listening, though. But the sleeves protect from ringwear and whatever other bullshit comes about.

    Yeah not a very clear question. It wouldve been better to ask if outer plastic sleeves do anything more then protect the vinyl cover. I have quite a few 12" singles/promos/eps with generic covers currently in plastic sleeves which I'm now questioning the purpose for doing so. Of course im just putting more thought and effort into this then it would to order more sleeves from amazon.

    Plastic sleeves help keep the dust & debris out of the jacket. I keep nearly all of mine in plastic as well. The only reason I don't have them all in sleeves is that I ran out of sleeves with about 200 records to go.

    The best way to keep dust out of a record is every time you put it away turn the inner sleeve so the opening is facing up and then turn the cover with the LP in it so the opening is facing up in the plastic sleeve.

    I don't use a plastic sleeve for the generic plain white covers but for everything else yes.
