This really is a struggle. Every time I think I am okay with selling my record collection, people look at me like I am making the biggest mistake of my life. Uncle Richard has warned me that I will regret it for the rest of my life, just like Aunt Marcie. I have self-identified as a music junkie for so long, I’m not sure who I will be once I give up that status. Or does owning the vinyl even give me status?
As I mentioned before in the post Salesucker, Insound is my favorite online retailer for records. They just announced the reissue of The Postal Service’s Give Up as a ten year anniversary release. And Pulp’s Different Class has been re-released on vinyl as well. What’s happening?! I want! I want! I want! I was really bad and actually bought the Guadalupe Plata album that was released last month. I didn’t want to say that I had slipped, but it’s true. How do I maintain my purge and sustain my identity and love?
