    - You are cooking a record in the oven, your wife finds you and slowly turns away with a sad look in her eyes.

    For whatever reason, you no longer play records on the same day you buy them.

    + You refuse to buy re-issues

    + Your wife says "don't you have enough records?" and you answer "No"

    + Rare forms of mold do not bother you

    + You have Stinky Steve and Record Ray's phone # on speed dial

    + It's hard to socialize with non-record nerds

    + Your weekend calendar is filled up with record shows

  • your roomate, significant other, or family members who love music are scared shitless to play anything or even go near your collection for fear of the repurcussions putting something back in the wrong place.

    so true....

    You're constantly finding new ways to cram records into every corner of your home

    The pizza guy sees a shelf behind you and says 'man, I thought I had a lot of records', not knowing there are several more shelves...

    + You read this list and you feel better knowing that you are not alone

    + you continue to buy records for future use
    without having a clue what it could be

    When you buy something not because it's your kind of music, but just to "collect."

    + you own records that you've never listened to

    and this even appliess to a semi-digger with no time and no money for records.

  • People are scared to give you music for your birthday.

    You see the doctor now and then for strange forms of rash.

    You still use the "just 15 minutes" line to your girlfriend.

    You get a reissue for your birthday. You listen to it. You like it. You buy the OG (and trade away the reissue).

    You get the shakes when you find something out in the field of value (either monetary or personal).

    You will hold off going the washroom forever, just to go through a ton of records.

    When you end up buying the whole lot, eventhough only 20% of it is good or worth it.

    + you own records that are in absolute shit condition just to say that you own them.

  • You always try to find out if your friends parents still got a record collection you could get your hands on.

    You always have a pair of gloves in your pocket.

    You don't go out friday night cause you wanna go digging the next day.

    God damn, I'm guilty of alot of this shit.

    My wife loves the "give me 15 minutes" request when we're out.

    And stopping at every odd shop that looks like it may have records....

    And she's giving me attitude because I want to go out record shopping instead of doing yardwork this weekend.......owning a house can be a real pain in the ass.


    And I have gone without eating for 6-8 hours to look through records.....although I have gotten smarter - I now pack a cliff bar or some other nourishment bar for the mid-record shopping snack.

    + When the wallpaper on your cellphone has records on it



    + When you ask your grandparents hit up their friends to see if they have any old record laying around

    you buy a record that you already have, only that nobody else have the chance to buy it.

    You receive more e-mails from e-bay than from anyone else (especially "watched items ending soon" alerts).

    -diggin thru files in your office is the only thing keeps you happy at work (makes you feel like you're diggin thru records)

    + You look at CDs as if they are some sort of mankind's mistake.
