How do you turn off being a record collector? Here I am trying to sell my record collection, and I get an email from Insound (my favorite online distributor of vinyl) saying they are having a 25% off sale. Of course I have to check it out! Of course I want to buy some records! Cause they are on sale! And I bet if I spend $50 or more, I get free shipping, right? Well that means I must buy at least 2-3 records… hell, it’s such a deal I should buy more!
There are 7″s by Lou Reed and New Order!
There are LPs by Band of Horses and Lykke Li!
No, no. I must restrain myself. There is a purpose to my foolish endeavor. I have a goal. I must be strong. I will not break out my credit card today.
