I'm an avid record collector.
I used to go to the big record convention in Hillsborough, NC with my buddies and buy all sorts of stuff on vinyl, most of which I still have.
But lately, for instance, combing through the treasures at the WFMU Record Fair here in Manhattan, I've been less inspired. I think for two reasons:
1 - I already have most of what it is that I've been searching for.
2- The shit is just becoming harder and harder to find - i.e. people like me are holding onto it.
Although there are some outstanding Suicide Commandos records that I want, but I ain't holding my breath for those (see #2).
Well, here's one that I want:
It's the only 45 by Naked Skinnies. According to Mark Eitzel, they had 500 pressed and he threw 250 away. I saw one on eBay once but it went for bank. Weird, since it's so obscure, but hey, I guess I just answered my own question.
So if anyone out there has one of the 250 that remain, send it to me and I'll send you a signed print - or some bank.
And in related news, I cannot for the life of me find my CD of AMC's "California," which is a MASTERPIECE and is idiotically OUT OF PRINT. I probably lent it to somebody...
Sigh...eBay and Amazon, here I come again.
FUCK! I gotta look around some more. It's got to be here somewhere...
I'm craving chicken wings from Bonnie's Grill. Park Slope but Buffalo style. And the best wings EVER.
