i just bid more on a record than i ever would have dreamed.do you cats operate with any kind of standard limitsof what you'll pay for a grail?how about more run-of-the-mill raer?curious...
so,yes i have limits but on few occassions i will ignore my limits
I just got paid for some side work I'm doing and knocked off some serious wants. An extremely rare free jazz album from ohio, a local boston funky jazz LP.... the work is a pain in the ass, so why shouldn't I get some fun out of it.
I can't always spend like this. Plus if times ever get rough, the albums will probably have increased in value, if I ever needed to get rid of em.
Rey you're scaring me with your new slimmed down look.
Why are your Pm's off btw? I wanted to send out a gift (leisure related) and need your addy.
I don't know why my PM's are off...strange. I just tried to PM Raj to fix the problem but apparently his are off also. I PM'd you.
The slimmed down look is a summer thing.
but i have to really want it
and it must be extra minty.
My friend spent $5,000 one one direct buy last year. Flipped it in one sale a week later for $85,000. I can't even talk about what was in it, because it is totally isane.
yeah, this is when a record starts to seem more like a piece of plastic & less like a sacred object for me. Also, paying big money is anti-climactic for me - the real joy comes from finding that super dope record you never even knew about in the stack of $2 records you just brought home, etc...
yes, GAME OVER
me: $100 or so.
I did pass on a $500 LP that I could have bought at $300. Oh wells.
not all of us are so BOLD[/b]
I agree with that. My limit is 100 euros, but I don't have the same pleasure with the record when I paid this.. so I did it maybe 2 or 3 times..
In opposite I really regret the few dollar bin LPs I sold to gain big money..
I could pay more than 100 for a record which value is far more than that, but I will probably not keep it! Just grab big money from it.
a benji is my limit most of the time, highest ive ever bid is 250...
