    Good god but am I ever sick of people who think it makes them sound smart or funny or worldly wise by starting with "But at least..." and then saying something that's obviously untrue and finishing with "Oh." or "Oh wait."

    It's like the dark days of the early '90s and Americans thinking they'd have a go at this sarcasm thing by saying something in a very sarcastic voice and then going "...NAWT!!!!" just in case anyone missed the sarcasm.

    my "pointless..." comment for the day: i have loads of old 12" house and techno vinyl with $5.99 (for domestic) and $9.99 (for import) price stickers on them. i was just looking at a weekly new releases email and almost all of the 12" vinyl is at least $14.99...holy crap, how do people afford to buy records anymore? who's going to take a chance on some obscure single when it's that price? maybe most dance music fans are buying digital at this point, so there's only a small universe of obsessives who spend cash for vinyl.
    I've been thinking about prices for vinyl a lot recently cos I am moving and short of money so I have been looking through my records and selling things I don't want or need. As well as my own stuff there is a load of kida 90s and 00s dance music that has accumulated over the years. I've sold some sevens for over a ton but others sell for much less than I expected - especially the "dance" stuff. While you're right that new stuff is expensive, it generally doesn't hold its value. It's weird to me that things such s box sets with like five drum & bass twelves cost 40p on discogs. It just seems that the sheer weight of vinyl should make it cost more than that. So, what's my point? None really but I guess that if someone can't afford new twelves they could amuse themselves and buy every new techno, house, big-beat etc record released between 95 and 2010 for a total of 7.50

    in the late 80's USA, i seem to remember saying "sike" instead of "not". It may be a regional thing.

    Like this, you mean?



    I'm going mainly from the Wayne's World movies, to be totally honest. And the guy who tried to teach Borat how to do 'comedy', although of course that was long after the early '90s.
