I enjoyed Record Store Day, when everybody was obsessed about it. And I mean everybody. You heard people talk about it months in advance, you heard people get their panties all wet over such a f****** thing. I don't have anything against LPS or records, They just aren't really my thing. I do find it interesting and fascinating that I used to have arguments with Azag about digital media and how I would never fall victim to it. But here I am, only a slave to digital media, and never would get involved with records. The only point of this post, is that it seems to be that not that many people are as obsessed with Record Store Day as it used to be.

Its bigger than ever...from what record store owners say....just not “hip” anymore

For me every day is RSD... but I am not really into battling people in competitive shopping

Really? I just thought in this day and age, the internet and Amazon and all of that made things such as Record Store Day a quaint novelty again. But I guess I was wrong. I always fall back to that Old Chestnut, that Americans have a five minute attention span and get tired of anything after a while.

Crooked Beat was my go-to before they moved.  They always got a big stock of what I was seeking.  Anyone have a guess at the best stores to hit this year?

Joint Custody over on U Street(?) seems to have a big selection. They have an original copy of Unknown Pleasures on the faint red vinyl on display. Too far out of my price point though.

My main get would be the Kevin Shields/Brian Eno 12"

Keep an eye on Ebay (and record store sites that have online ordering) at 8AM Sunday the 22nd to potentially pick up RSD releases at retail, that's when record stores are allowed to put their unsold stock online.

They will have the grant green at cd cellar but $50-$60....man

Will probably stop by cd cellar at some point over weekend as I usually do ...just not into competitive shopping
