#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:

How about UNPRICED ITEMS!

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!!

I'm only angry because my wife would give me....THE LOOK! :yikes:

She would sooner turn my ass into a c.d. opener :butt:

That's just me being jealous though.

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:

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
