Women are of course important, my beloved wife of 27 years has put up with my record/cd collecting for all those years - though she knows generally not to buy for me as I have fairly specific wants. :D
A friendly neighbour, father of my friends kids, who deals in audio bought over a brand new set of Wharfedale Evo 2-8's for me to borrow over the Xmas period. He's willing to sell them for $250 which is a bit if a steal I might not be able to refuse. Beautiful looking as - my wife is as well!

All very recognizable feelings here. I think it's fair to call it what it is, it's an addiction. I quit smoking but this is a lot harder to shake off...
And yes, buying online can make you forget how much you're spending. Why else do I regularly feel guilty about the fact that I put too much money in records and that I simply can't shake the urge to hunt vinyl?
Although it's never just buying records that gives me a bad feeling, it's looking at bad stuff that never got played or that I'm tired off. That's why I go through the stack regularly and sell what I don't play or don't need to a friend who sells record to sponsor his sound. Guess I could get more of my money back when I would put them on eBay but then it would still be time-absorbing and I just can't bother too much.
Another good tool to stay conscious of what I'm actually spending is to make an excel-file with name+price of everything I ever bought. First time I started doing that, the total sum kept me out of my sleep before I was even half way through :lol:
Some people here say they will have 'enough' when they reach 5000 7 inches, must say I never have such a number in mind. I find it rather important to know what you have and make sure you really like it and play it...I guess everybody collects because he's a DJ, or do some people collect just for the joy of having the records?

except he got tons of stuff for free and he owned his own record shop. Ordered 10 items, sold 9 in his store and kept 1 copy of everything for himself. Not like he paid 10 grand for a rare rolling stones record..

and if you are selling for 5 million dollar worth of records every year.. think about the amount of records that are kept by himself..
thank you putting this on here- best reggae track ever, apart from most bob marley tracks

And what prompted you to give up/take a break from buying vinyl Capullo? (Though I suppose the title of the thread may give a clue).

well, good question mark. nothing special really. i was on vacation for 5 weeks and when i came back 2 weeks ago i just didn't pick up my addictive habit again. being a vinyl addict is all good but only as long as one can appreciate all the stuff coming in. i really enjoy listening all the stuff i collected over the years these days and that is a wonderful feeling still. might be back on track soon but if not it's all good still, haha.

That makes sense, if we are not enjoying what we have there isn't much point in buying more.
Now this thread is sitting right next to the Recent Finds thread - which is kind of ironic!
Keep enjoying music - that's the main thing, I can't imagine my life without music. :D
