NON - Physical Evidence (LP, 1982, Mute)
Im on my second copy of this. Unfortunately both copies filled with loud crackle and surface noise. To the extent that the enjoyment suffers. Supposed to be NM copies. Have i had bad luck or is the pressing shit? Love the album though. Thinking about trying a third copy? The closure give me vibes of early 90s Incaps, but this is ten years prior. Fantastic stuff.

Mirror - Ringstones (LP, 1999, Some Fine Legacy)
Same here. Bought in mint. Plenty of surface noise and such throughout. Not something you want on a Mirror lp. Did i get a bad copy or is it this bad? I only have Mirror on CD and Ringstones has stopped my from purchasing their other vinyl releases.

Setting it up right now, so far it's certainly better than bigcartel it seems. I've tried setting that up, but couldn't figure out how to let it resemble anything near actual shipping costs without undercharging or overcharging by a lot depending on how many items are ordered.
Problem I'm seeing now is that I didn't know what flat rate shipping is. Started looking for it, then I understand why that is. If I understand correctly, Belgian postal system doesn't have a flat rate shipping option. For which I have to congratulate discogs immediately. Great job thinking that post works the same in every country and you don't have the option to disable flat rate. Slow clap, well done!
It could be a good thing for me, I've lost orders due to steep shipping costs, but some people order then pull out when shipping is too expensive, other people just send a message, so it's not a problem or shouldn't be. But I understand that for a lot of people in these times it's too much to simply send a message. So probably people have not ordered or sent me messages because of that, so let's see if some more orders come in now.
The bulk of orders from discogs probably goes through professional and not so professional labels and distros, but I wonder what percentage of their sales is just from people who want to get rid of some second hand items or their own artist copies. I regularly come across those kind of lists, with less then 100 items. Will these people do the effort of setting it up? Or will they just search for another channel? If they go elsewhere and that percentage is big enough, discogs might loose money on it rather than earn more... Though I realise that probably won't be the case...

One extra problem I come across: I regularly ship CDs without jewel case, because that makes them weigh less than 100g, so shipping is almost half, so regularly people choose that option. Digipaks also mostly weigh less than 100g and are thus cheaper to ship. No way to do this with this system, too bad, I guess...

New Paranoid LP drops out of nowhere - very exciting! Ordered from Konton Crasher in the US before realizing the band had copies of the 12” of outtakes. Already regretting that one.

They allow sellers to reannounce their stuff everyday, the same and the same sellers with the same stuff everytime i open the marketplace. I wish i could block them.

Yes, so annoying. My List of new items from my waitlist for sale is 90% the same stuff everyday.. What are these sellers thinking?

It led me to remove everything from my want list. Simple solution. Usually I just buy something straight away when I need it. There's discogs users with 1000ths of entries in their want list, will they ever get their stuff?

Today is the anniversary of the death of ISD

i give any bet that some clandestine rac concerts did happen yesterday

you bet your ass they did, and i didn't get to attend any of them.

the only thing i didn't see previously listed that's worth mentioning is Twierdza, who can be fairly hit or miss, although everything i've heard off of "Lot Orła" is solid.

quick search yeilds no thread for hippy singer/songwriters like Doug, Tony & David. any fanatics or are we all “too tough” to enjoy old men w 12 string sitting under tree? honestly enjoy Di6 albums like Rose Cloud or Nada but not so keen on All Pigs. not familiar with much else outside the well known albums of the genre (thunder perfect mind , trees in winter etc etc)

so in short,  looking for suggestions. new acts and obscure gems from past all welcome.

Changes, Fire+Ice all you need basically, Pyhä Kuolema for more recent stuff

funny to see these three acts listed together. all three came up in recent conversation between myself and my other half. i've always considered Di6 to be one of my top 3 favorites, but PK has quickly become a runner-up, simply in the respect that i can put them on in any circumstance, regardless of mood and always want to listen to it. was unaware of the Process ties regarding Changes until recently, which lends a bit more to their music for me. decent album, although nothing beats the title track imo.

currently trudging through a combination of the Nag Hammadi Library and a couple supplementary theological texts on the self-imposed curriculum level, and finally reading Lovecraft for the first time on the more pleasurable end. tis the season.

Which Lovecraft are you reading?  He has a lot of great stories.

it's an anthology, just wrapped up "The Outsider" then onto the very short "The Music of Erich Zann" and "Reanimator". i'm not much of a fiction person, but his writing style is ace. luxurious horror.

I could be wrong but if not, some entrepreneur/coding wizard could make a browser addon and website that tracks the complete price/selling data of Discogs (much like others have done for Amazon etc). Add in-price tracking with email notifications to say when something is listed under a customer defined price and you're winning.

And that's the only hope, cause if you wait from Discogs staff it will never happen. They dont even have introduced a new much neccesary function to seperate wantlist from stuff you want to get notification emails for ! - They allow sellers to reannounce their stuff everyday, the same and the same sellers with the same stuff everytime i open the marketplace. I wish i could block them. Seriously, i dont think this helps them, gives buyer the impression it's always there. - As for notification emails, i had turn them off in a week once i tried them, cause of that.

Also, to help the database running and expanding, and give contributors something back, they could for every newly added release when it sells for first time -and only then- for 5EUR and above, to give the guy who added it 50cent credit points, and when he has enough to buy a release Discogs to pay for him using his credit. - What's the use of their fucking rank points ?! What they think contributors are ? Kids ? At least respect them and dont fool them with rankings and such shit.

I suspect people working for Discogs dont use Discogs, and they dont care to ask and listen.

That said, Discogs database is the best place in the internet. OK, one of the best at least. And their marketplace useful, no matter its cons.

Maybe their sales history is the reason prices go up all the time. I think yes.
