Also, It should be noted that the only reason we pressed special ed. stuff to sell to very wealthy Europeans. Now that the euro has lost so much of it's value against the dollar, we've stopped. If it gets back up to around $1.54 - $1.60, we'll start up limited edition runs again.

Always somebody ready to shit on CDR - no, you're right, I don't want anything unique looking in my record collection, give me all the same glossy slop that comes with a dollar bin. So much better than something handmade.


Well, but saying "people always shit on X" isn't a real objection to anything? (If it were, it would be a perfectly good defense of George W. Bush...) The way to object is to point out a relevant difference between the two things being compared... ... Or to point to an overriding reason that justifies CDR practices. And, like i said, i'm not trying to badmouth CDR - i'm just wondering if they really do make manufactured collectibles (i'm fine with the answer being "no"), and if they do, is doing so a bad thing (i'm fine with the answer being "no").

Look, i took it that the problem with manufactured collectibles is that it seems to take the focus off the music, and more on the "baseball geek-out" features, which are irrelevant to the music. You can focus on whether the packaging is glossy or handmade - but I took it that a lot of people could've cared less about how their record collection LOOKED, as long as the music was good.

Maybe the idea is that enticing people with extra unique features is good because it gets them to listen to music they would have otherwise not have listened to - and you think thats a good thing. That's a potentially good reason to think that CDR is justified in selling such records with the extra collectors features.

But make THAT argument. Don't give me that irrelevant "oh, everyone shits on CDR" nonsense. Your making CDR look bad by justifying it with the "My record collection looks pretty" argument.

My record collection looks a whole lot prettier without any White Stripes records. That much is certain.

My record collection is just VH1 Divas '98-'02, NSYNC and U2 b-sides. I actually wish it were a whole lot prettier...

Why not? The artist can sell 1 copy for 500 instead of 1 copy for 20. Seems like a win win. If I were an artist and I had a third man release, I would personally sell it on eBay to raise fund for my band. Why get all upset about what other people buy.

If you like the music, buy it, if not who really cares?

I will order CDR stuff quicker if there is a limited pressing, why not, I like having a color version limited to 100. There latest release, the Unholy 2 record, I will just grab that at a local shop since its 500 all black.

Just like I want my car and home to have a good re-sale value, its nice when my records do too, I am very happy all my White Stripes stuff is in demand, and yeah, I bought the re-issues, and the vinyl merch set, one day I will have to sell it, I'd rather sell it for a profit after I enjoy it.

If anyone knows where I can get the 2007 and 2009 calendar, let me know.

I think I'm good on all the posters included in David's albums..

I have a signed copy of the 1st Necropolis 7" that BJ wrote $4500.00 on it. I would be willing to part with is for half that amount.
