    I don’t like you.

    I would have been fine never knowing about the Kate Bush price drop. Now I broke my diet with the first two volumes.

    Purposely ignored this thread through November :oops:

    I'm hoping I can say I've purchased my last record for the year...

    Diet starts like a New Years resolution then :unsure:

    My last VMP orders were Toulouse on December 1st and Guruguru Brain Bundle on November 21st. It's not that bad but I heard about a Brazilian bundle soon...

    1. I tell my wife that I'll only buy albums that are hard to find or ridiculous deals.

    2. I apologize for not doing that.

    Same here. And it normally falls flat on its face by Jan 3rd.

    I'm looking almost every day if they are running out of stock on this. I am trying to be patient and wait for the next one or two releases to save on shipping. But it's limited so...

    Besides ordering There Will Be Blood when I'm pretty sure I won't listen to it much yesterday... I've been doing better about not buying records in December vs November when I said I wasn't going to buy any.

    It’s been 7 days since my last vinyl purchase. I’m confident I’m getting a handle on the diet now.

    I'll let you all in on a little secret. We say shipping is free at $30 but it's really something like $29.95. That's to make it so you get free shipping on $29.97 records like this one.

    I'm just messing. That is good info though because I've always wondered if those $29 and change albums actually counted for free shipping.

    That’s like the exact opposite of the expected and normal practice with that kind of pricing/shipping strategy. Kudos to y’all.
