Temptation on a Tuesday

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?
