Also, what's up with that url?

Just go and cherish the only clickable link on that page. It is work safe, despite the name.

The song on the front page is a byproduct of weed and alcohol, glad you enjoyed it BigHustle.

It reminded me of the hidden tracks that Skankin' Pickle used to put on their CDs, specifically 'Dates from Hell' off the Green Album.

When I look at the pictures in this thread and its predecessor, I can't help but think I really should just start hanging some record covers up on walls. I mean, here I have these sometimes amazing works of art and I'm keeping them in boxes and tucked away in pieces of cheap Ikea furniture, in translucent plastic sleeves, where I can't properly look at them except if I take them out - and for what? What's going to be more important - that I leave behind a record collection where the covers are in immaculate condition when I die, or that I've been able to look at fuckawesome art every day at home while I'm alive?

How about the best of both worlds?

God drat those are expensive frames. Urban Outfitters seems to have a similar product for 16.

Over on this side of the planet Urban Outfitters has them $15 each (2 for $20 on sale at the moment) and the site I linked has a 3 pack for $39. The prices break down to about the same.

I picked up a couple Miles Davis LPs today. Tribute to Jack Johnson for 5bux

I am jealous as all hell. That's my favorite Miles Davis album.

I can only assume someone gave this to my grandfather. I have no idea who as there is a long list of people he knew that would. I have never played it. I have no idea if it lives up to its label and I don't have a turntable up here to find out.


Autry Inman was a country and rockabilly musician who also did standup comedy. That's a single from one of his two comedy albums. more info here.

I'll have some pics a little later. Just won some Captain Beefheart promo albums on eBay and have to go pick them up from the record shop downtown.

Here's my newest haul...


Promo copies of Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller), Clear Spot, and Doc at the Radar Station by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.


I also grabbed reissues of Safe as Milk and Trout Mask Replica, on white and transparent red vinyl respectively.


To break from the trend I grabbed a couple Inspiral Carpets singles.

I forgot about that scene. The short time I worked at a record store (way before the movie) my old boss was the skinhead version of Barry. Some kid came in asking for some No Doubt album. Scott asks him why he he says 'I like ska.' Scott then chases the kid out of the store screaming about how No Doubt isn't ska and he'll show him some REAL ska.'

A store you have to explain yourself in is a store soon out of business. In fact, any record/book/comic book shop where you actually are expected to talk to complete a transaction is doomed. This may be a Finnish thing, though.

Anyways, a lot of people only collect singles because a) most music on albums is tat and b) a lot of great music was only ever released as singles.

I think that might be a Finnish thing. Over here if you enter a comic book or record store NOT expecting a conversation to complete your transaction you're experience will be doomed. When I went in to pick up my vinyl I ended up having a 20 minute discussion with the clerk who rang out my purchases about Herbie Hancock.

I think he was shocked to find someone who responded to the name Herbie Hancock with something other than 'That dude did Rock-It, right?' followed by an off-key humming rendition of the main keyboard line.

I pick up singles occasionally for the B-sides and remixes. That white jacketed Inspiral Carpets single I snagged is of their tune 'Commercial Reign' and has 4 or 5 different remixes of that song on it.

Most used record shops don't care about selling them even though technically they shouldn't. As a buyer I try to avoid them because more often than not whatever track was the single or most popular tends to be worn to poo poo even if the rest of the record looks and sounds ok.

I always assumed the opposite, that the record shop owners and deejays would be more likely to take better care of their albums. I've got a bunch of promo albums and haven't run into any with major problems.

Off topic, but I can't look at your avatar without being reminded that Quintron and Miss Pussycat canceled their tour. I was really looking forward to hitting that show.

I've found the opposite was mostly the case, record handling at radio stations was a cringeworthy ordeal.

Yeah, see, this kind of stuff is why my keeps paying for itself. I should know better, but I like to live in my own little world where people care about their vinyl.

Farts Domino, If I was in New Orleans I'd go there myself. I'm in STL and have to wait for the cool kids to come play in the basement of an office building and poo poo.
