okay they now have ten copies of stink out, still all 80 dollars a piece
@pitpat i've been doing more mailordering than ever lately. love it. like stu, i'm usually looking for something very specific.
getting a package in the mail is the best.
On this tip very much so these days. Ordered some stuff from Sacred Bones and from a few artists directly. I know the challenges of breaking even on records from the label or artist standpoint so I want to support them directly as much as possible. I like popping into record stores to browse but I lost my stomach for it years ago. I just don't have the patience. Flashlight is not far from home but I haven't heard anything that would compel me to go there soon.
I finally checked this place out today. Saw the aforementioned $100 Coltrane record still sitting there. The prices are definitely on the high side - I let out an involuntary noise of disbelief when I saw James Blood Ulmer's "Tales Of Captain Black" for $50, which is about twice as much as it gets on Discogs on its best day. Not as across-the-board insane as Shuga, but overpriced enough to convince me that no good deals were going to be found there (maybe in the $3 dollar room, but I kinda doubt it), so I don't see myself going back.
I've managed to restrain myself from starting a vinyl fleshlight parody thread because a. no doubt someone already did that when this thread was first initiated b. do we still do parody threads around here? and c. fleshlights are made out of "patented SuperSkin material," not vinyl.
@pitpat, Toby Ronnie sounds fucking HOT
It's a secret combination of high-quality mineral oil and rubber polymers, according to an in-depth investigation done by Men's Health in 2014. I also learned that the company was born when its founder was told not to have sex with his wife while she was pregnant with twins due to her advanced age - 46. I feel smarter already.
