Just paid $170 for an original 2xLP pressing of Manson’s “Portrait Of An American Family”. It’s our anniversary, so it’s a dual gift deal, so it’s kinda ok, but fuck… That’s expensive. Still, glad to have it. That fills the gap of 1994-2001 vinyl for Manson; all that could possibly matter.
I’m finding that, in a strange turn of events, all the emotionally compatible guys I stumble across online are straight. I mean, I’m engaged, so I’m not “looking”, but it’s interesting to see this change/development.
Got Coil’s “Astral Disaster” on vinyl today. It was shipped, internationally from Greece, in an envelope. A fucking envelope. The sleeve is wrecked. The vinyl plays fine. The whole thing stinks like an ashtray. Not happy.
