#1-BODY ODOR- Guys that spend $100.00 on c.d.s, but can't afford $1.50 for a bar of soap :puke:

 

#2-300 LB + guy who takes up 4 rows of c.d.s while he looks :2up:

 

#3-Spouse or friend who is a complete JOYKILL :doh:

 

#4- SHITHEAD vendor who asks for a ridiculous price for a c.d. that looks like it was run over by a car

 

#5- That wonderful aroma of coffee & stale cigarettes on people's breath

 

Anybody else want to add to this?

# 1 through to # 1000 - People. Everywhere. I hate them.

You should come to Lapland. You can walk miles and miles without bumping into a human being. Only raindeers, mooses, bears, wolves and alike and eventually you will bump into Santa Cl :stfu:

And gaming conventions - I mean, I've never been to a gaming convention. :whistle:

 

At least if you're at a gun show, the solution is in your hands. And I mean the firearm, not your cock, Geoff.

Oh, you don't have to tell me... I had tons of experience with comic book dealers during my years of comic collecting/convention attendance... and the general look and 'tude of Comic Book Guy is NOT an exaggeration at all.

 

The first time I saw Comic Book Guy on a "Simpsons" episode I laughed like hell because I knew SO many dealers who looked and sounded JUST like him!!

Back on topic: What I love about CD Conventions... asking the snotty dealer in the Strokes or White Stripes t-shirt "Got any metal?", to which he'll look down his nose at you as if you just asked "Mind if I f**k your Mom?" before saying "Uh, yea, I think there's a few in that last box waaaaayyyy over there..." in a condescending tone of voice.

 

...then when you go to said box, there are maybe 10 CDs, all of which are very common titles that you (and everyone else on Planet Earth) already owns... and they're all scratched and beaten to boot! :angry:

OOHH!

I forgot about that!

About 12 years ago, I found PANTERA'S POWER METAL. I asked the guy HOW MUCH? He told me $25.00. I quickly paid him and his responce was " I SHOULD HAVE ASKED FOR MORE".

SORRY JERKOFF!!

IT'S MINE NOW!!! :2up:

Hehehe :rofl2: I think you summed it up pretty good. I guess these are the sacrifices we must make for our love of music :headbanger: I know this everytime I get a postcard in the mail for the next CD & record show and especially the day of. It's get geared up and brave the storm to look through and buy some awesome CD's - well worth it after!

Here's one CD Convention guy I wanted to strangle...

Years ago I wandered past a booth where a dealer was playing a pretty sweet sounding Type O Negative live bootleg CD for a prospective customer. (I was big into Type O at the time, had just seen them live several times and was into collecting anything I could find on them...) The guy sat there hemming and hawing like "Hmmm, I dunno, it sounds okay I guess, but..." and dragging his feet, so I'm standing behind him making hand signals at the dealer like "DUDE! If this guy doesn't want it, I'LL take it!" After several torturous moments, the guy finally made up his damn mind and bought the disc... once he was gone I sez to the dealer, "You wouldn't happen to have another copy of that one, would you?" and he sez "Nah, sorry, he got the only one I had." :hammer:

 

On a happy ending note, I did finally acquire that disc at the next months' show, from the same guy.

Hubby picks out $250.00 worth of c.d.'s and his wife pays for it!!

Last Month!!

No Lie!!

To add insult to my (Jealous) injury, the dealer gave her a copy of HELIX-CHRISTMAS ALBUM.

It also pissed me off that it took me a close to a half hour to get in front of his table :taz:

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
