Jan 31 2009 - The "Its Been HOW Long?" Scroungers Report

Egads, it's been a while.

 

Got up this morning and really didn't file like spending another day sitting in front of the computer, so I figured that now that gasoline is no longer four fucking bucks a gallon, that I could just go out on a spontaneous scrounging mission. But where to go?

 

The pickings locally have been horrid the last few years (as I mentioned in the other thread), and I've really backed off on my CD collection other than CD singles. So it's off to a place that I know will have plenty of CD singles: JL Records in Lafayette, IN.

 

It's only about an hour and a half drive, which is a yawner. I was there, scrounged, and back, in about 6 hours.

 

Even though I looked for full-length stuff to sell on eBay, the pickings were slim. Yes, there was plenty of stuff, but the prices were so high that there was no chance for me to turn any profit whatsoever. :(

 

I did find one item for resale, though. A nice still sealed copy of Harlequin - Love Crimes, Japanese pressing. There are 3 on eBay, all above $80 asking price, and a used one just went for $49 shipped. If anyone here wants this sealed one, $60 shipped in the U.S.

I found a boatload of singles for my collection. Not cheap by any means, as most were in the $7-12 range, but there's some neat stuff throughout.

 

Random comments:

 

The HIM singles were a nice find, as a couple of them routinely sell in the $20-30 range.

The Mike and the Mechanics photo wallet single is kinda cool.

I always enjoy finding 3-inch singles (Micahel Bolton & Cinderella this time around).

You don't see singles by The 69 Eyes every day either.

The shaped Deep Purple single is a neat item.

Aqua is a guilty pleasure of mine. I wish they had done more than 2 albums...

 

 

Here they are in quasi-alphabetical order.

Hey Dan nice find on those HIM singles! I did the same thing last year..went to one place & found about 10 HIM singles for about $5 a pop & bought them all & all of them were like brand new...I also have the HIM singles boxset which is really cool. I have a lot of cd singles, too, though I don't set out to look for them they just kinda find me. I bought 2 boxes of singles from a guy on Ebay about 10 years ago (I really don't know why, I guess cuz they were dirt cheap) & if I ever decide to get rid of them I'll keep you in mind...

Please do. I'm horribly disorganized at the moment, but one of my goals for 2009 is to get my CD Singles Database caught up. I've got about 500 or more that I don't have entered. It's in my own best interests to do so, as that's the list I check out on the road to make sure I don't double-buy... which of course I do. :o

 

I'll have a hundred or two dupes for trading as well... once I get organized. Ergf.

Yeah I'm very disorganized myself...have all my cd's in stacks in my basement as I am typing up my whole cd collection on the computer...a stack for A's, a stack for B's & so on. So far I've typed up A-S and I'm at about 1650 cd's & counting...didn't realize I had that many :headbanger:

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
