    or you have a $1000 + gas bill, instead of putting $$ towards that...you drop $ 600 in one week on vinyl
    black crack no doubt



    or do you live in a mansion in antarctica?

    when you can tell a styrene 45 from a vinyl 45 from a photo of the label on the computer screen.

    when you get a wart on a finger from cleaning disgustingly dirty 45s that must have been covered in cat piss and 30 years of grunge. the bright side is that the 45s were hot keepers and became playable after heavy cleaning, the dark side is that after putting off/forgetting to put wart medicine on, the wart stays for 3 or 4 years, then finally mysteriously disappears.

    + When you see a nattily-attired African-American in their 50s or 60s and think: "Man, they must have/have had a killer record collection."

    luck, I gotta call this one out man. Foul.

    + You buy sealed records because they are sealed and they are a buck


    Just today I was going through some sealed Dimple Fields and early 80s Four Tops records trying to figure out what to do with them and wondering why I bought them.
    +Tomorrow I would buy them again "because they are sealed and they are a buck".

    For 6 pages I was making a list of everyone that fit me.
    Then I accidentally closed the tab.

    you look forward to your wife going away on a business trip because it means you get to... go off by yourself on daylong digging excursions without making excuses

    you give the death stare to people who happen to be casually browsing records at one of your regular digging spots

    + You buy 50 mediocre $2 records but have sticker shock over a $100 end to end burner

    When you're out you keep thinking about going home to listen all to those records you picked up the other day. When you get home you keep thinking about the all the thrift stores you need to hit up.

    Guilty on all accounts. Plus:

    - finding a really underpriced record and then buying extra records at that store with the imaginary profit

    - sympathy buys at a store

    - dealers text you when new stuff has arrived

    When you know you've paid too much for a record and you go on cfrenzy scouring past auctions and even double back to popsike and work your own imaginary math equation that helps you accept your impulsive blunder.

    Even worse, buying it on iTunes thinking "I'm just going to give in because I'll never find it" except you did 10 years ago and stumble on to it the day after paying $10.99 for the iTunes LP.

    I do this all the time with stuff that $5. I figure it's good record karma and a nice thing to do for your friends.
