Show off your collection no matter what size.....because everyone knows size does not matter.
I'll be sure to tell my wife that the "Vinyl Me, Please" forum says size doesn't matter.
I'd post a picture of my collection if it weren't in storage waiting for my house to be built.
Need to move over to the third box soon! It's starting to get a bit cramped in the two boxes.
My phone camera is so bad too! Q_Q
And to see what exactly what I have, Here's my Discogs library.
I'm at work unfortunately so can't take a picture, but figured in the meantime I'd just post my collection from discogs. Haven't been able to get all my CDs on there but all my vinyl is catalogued.
That Nehruvian Doom album is pretty damn good.
What are your thoughts on the Sisyphus album? Love Sufjan but wasn't too keen on the first song I heard so I never got it.
My wife and I just really started collecting heavily last spring—augmenting my CDs and records that we had acquired growing up, and getting a few family heirlooms in the process (all of the original pressing Beatles and Beach Boys albums from my mother). We have been very selective with what we buy, focusing mostly on the mid 80s to mid 90s era. I also pick up every copy of any performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, no matter what.
Yep yep! I thought NhruvianDOOM was a solid album. Would have like a bit more DOOM verses on it, but am very interested to see how Bishop Nehru evolves as an MC as he gets older.
As for the Sisyphus album, I thought it was alright. I'm more of a fan of Son Lux's style and locals than of both Serengeti and Sufjan. The parts of the songs that featured more on Sun Lux, Like the songs "Take Me" and "I Wont Be Afraid", were a lot stronger or more memorable, imo. I might just be drawn to his more breathy/openness of his vocals and the calming yet booming instruments. The rapping segments, to me, were very hit or miss, more miss from what I remember. I'll need to go back and give it another listen to get a better feel, its been awhile.
I was disappointed on first listen of Nehruvian Doom for the same reason, but Bishop Nehru impressed the hell out of me the more I listened to it. I'll pretty much buy anything Doom shows up in even if it's for 10 seconds.
Thanks for the reply on Sisyphus. I'll hold off on that one.
If you use spotify, you can always give it a listen. Wouldn't hurt to give it a go though.
It's time to start buying more vinyl for that top shelf
Man, don't I know it. I've actually done a pretty decent job over the last year. I've expanded two squares. Getting very close to having to move to the next one. Meanwhile, the wifey keeps losing space for her vases and books. haha
My wife and I are at a Mellow Mushroom (pizza chain, if you haven't been, go!) but I collect pint glasses and she just asked what I'm going to do with all 200+ of them...haha. My vinyl is getting up there as well.
There was a Mellow Mushroom in Clemson that I went to a couple times. Good stuff. Think there's one in Charlottesville too, which I may try to go to if I can find someone to go to Parquet Courts with me in January.
I have like 25 pint glasses and have a hard time finding a place for those. Haha
Here we go...
Current state of my Record / CD / Tape Collection.
here's my vinyl shelves from some time last year. i've since had to expand to the bottom four shelves as well.
imgur album here for those curious: http://imgur.com/a/OcNfp#0
i probably should update this now that i look at it.
Still got about 40 or so records either in the mail or at home to add but here it is.
oh yeah, i have a discogs listing, too: http://www.discogs.com/user/AndySlash/collection
discogs is a pretty great site, if people reading this haven't ever heard of or used it. highly recommended.
I wouldn't recommend it if you want to keep your money haha
