    I started listening to music more frequently on Spotify to be honest. It helps quench the thirst for physical ownership of everything. Then I ask myself how frequently am I going to spin this in the next 5 years. Will I be satisfied with just Spotify until the newness wears off? Will this be worth taking up space on my shelf? Is this going to sound amazing on vinyl?

    I’d much rather have physical ownership over anything so it’s hard. But limited space is helping me prioritize.

    This is what I try to tell myself, but limited editions/FOMO get the best of me constantly. Also had capped myself on space, had told my wife I was going to keep my collection that size or under. Well, baby on the way, office/record listening room got moved to the basement and oops....shelving unit somehow just over doubled in size.

    I was much worse in the year after I joined VMP. The collection exploded. But if I want to be in this for the long haul I have to be better.

    I saw nothing of this title in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Email. And I'm bad at checking Twitter, sure, but I use the other services a LOT, and follow/subscribe to VMP on all of them. Not being difficult or anything, just saying that with the BS selective showing of posts that social media does this isn't as surefire of a way of reaching your full audience as it should be. And lord knows why I didn't get the email.

    I don't follow the Rising thread cause that's just too much (which is on me), but the Jackie Cohen was added to the exclusives thread like 2 hours before it went on sale. Idk maybe it was just a perfect storm of me being in the dark with this one, but that post in the exclusives thread was the first time I knew about this, and that definitely felt pretty last minute.

    Would that mean Storf can't ask himself questions anymore?

    I was never one for Xmas albums but there's always one exception to the rule and it's called TSO 'The Christmas Attic - 20th Anniversary Edition'...if the price is right of course...

    Yeah I was pretty confident that there wouldn't be any Christmas albums I'd want in the store this month, but then this popped up.

    I get nothing from the store or site. Rotation (Rare), Standards (Once a quarter, maybe). I don't know what the issue is, honestly, and I don't mean this in a derogatory manner, I don't care at this point. Subbed or not, I've always wanted to be kept informed of what is going on and or coming along in VMP land, but there is some disconnect somewhere. Like @Heath , I have VMP tagged on Facebook and Insta, I have Twitter also, but I NEVER see notification from VMP......while I do get others.

    I come here pretty much daily to see what's going on and to catch up and share, but when I was subbed, I think I missed out on anything that was limited and popular just because I had no idea about it.......and I was subbed.

    But, I'm not expecting anyone to drop everything for one person, and my issues with VMP at the moment go farther then the notification issue so It's really a mute point. My only contention is that there is no way I'm the only one having this problem and if my years in an IT environment have taught me one thing, more people with the same problem just don't report it or mention it, they just move on.

    Hopefully time will iron out these wrinkles.

    I’ve never gotten an On Rotation email in almost 4 years. Didn’t know they existed until recently.

    Someone explain to me why I should get this. The music sounds fine but not seeing the FOMO or need for it.
