  • I don't over think it. I look for records, I buy the ones I like. All this esoteric bullshit is just a way to make record collectors feel more special than any other music shopper.

    My new ethic is to drop the word digger. I'm a shopper.

    And I love how G*ry NEVER gets mad and always stays funny. Why do fools even bother talking shit to him? You'll never win. EVER.

    He is known to display tender hindquarters when attempting to discuss the rap music.

    45s > 33s

    This is still true.

  • Let's do this

    1). never rock/deejay/or sample re-issues
    2). never sample off of a drum crazy break record or another rap records' drums
    3). Get all the records that where used on sample/break mix.


    come on dudes, let your 1998/early 2000's show

    I don't see any real "digging ethics" being discussed in this thread.

    In fact most of the posts I see in this thread are from a bunch of whiny dudes who don't / never dug deep once, posted in the weekend finds thread, proved they dug or found squat, and never once in their lives bought heavy records or collections. They're just sitting around pointing out the supposed shift in their musical tastes between 1990s and 2009 while they get paid at their job to dick around on Soulstrut.

    Real 2009 digging ethics? In my opinion, it's no holds barred, anything goes.

    Wow, the air of importance attached to record collecting (especially by selleurs) is ridiculous sometimes. Get over yourself. No one in the real world cares about this shit.

    This thread started out with some dudes having a laugh over the days of yore, buying rinked Ramsey Lewis LPs and $15 spending limits, and then you derailed it with your aggy attitude.

    I left Rootless Chadmo a voicemail last night and ended it with "F*ck YOU! I'M GOING DIGGIN!!!"


    which would have been hilarious if he had actually read this thread. Turns out he had focused all his energy on the israel thread (big surprise).

    No need to go get on a high horse because you're running an ebay hustle in a sleepy burg with no real competition.
