And, worse, it might lead to you collecting his import pressings!
...You have albums by artists that don't even feature them!
You self-release audiophile vinyl on your own DIY label full of ultra-quiet 45 RPM LPs that don't even have music, just total quiet. You call this your Air LP series. Steve Hoffman forumites nearly buy out your supply of them.
...You have every piece of vinyl that exists with Elvis Presley's name on it, yet it doesn't even amount to a drop within your total collection!
I might have to get on the waiting list!
I think Sly Stone actually released a track of total silence on "There's A Riot Goin On". Or so I once read. I need to get a copy of that album on vinyl come to think of it! See, these posts are already having their effect on me.
You already have a VG+ six-eye mono Time Further Out, then you buy a NM- two-eye stereo pressing of the same album, and Dave Brubeck isn’t really your thing.
That reminds me...
... 35% of your collection is made up of artists you don't even like!
But I think that one may have long been mentioned already.
You have elaborate religious ceremonies that involve sacrificing one of your "lesser lamb" vinyl on the MoFi altar. Last week it was a 120 gram copy of Barry Manilow's Copacabana. The "ink" from the melted vinyl is used for Mayan fertility goddess face tattoos.
...Your car is on its third replacement engine, but you have 200 albums on pre-order.
Do you have any really rare/expensive/cool stuff? If so, mind if I move in under you?
...You determined that it was either food for a month or the latest Rhino reissues, and you actually had to think it over for awhile!
boxes of records havent been opened in over a decade
I can relate to the bolded part. In all seriousness, music is the closest thing to religion I'll ever have. I just don't have the "faith" gene, not a willful thing, just can't feel it. But I know a good listening session takes me someplace not quite of this world, some other (better) plane. And I emerge grateful and refreshed and better able to see the good and beauty in the world.
...your collection is better than sex!
...you have lp's filed under genres that aren't even recognized by music collectors!
...Michael Fremer is jealous.
...you have Motown records that the label never even put out!
Listening to those CDs in a darkened room with a candle burning and his libation of choice will allow your son to come and visit you in person in the hereafter, now and then.
...the last time your collection was even remotely manageable, Peter Frampton was still in Humble Pie!
I just threw up in my mouth a little...
...you don't have a record collection, you have a record warehouse!
...you had to cancel your dentist appointment because you forgot that the deluxe set for Their Satanic Majesties Request was coming out that day.
...Record Store Day fell on your wedding and, well...you know which one took precedent...
You spend one day a week vacuuming more records.
...You were actually stunned to find out that Record Store Day isn't a Federal holiday!
