The Record Show
Yep. Record show was exactly as expected. Same same same. I had spent about $15 or so?
Aside from that, I got 4 CDs of "The Capitol Steps" which is one of those groups that thinks they are so cute and funny by going off on then current political figures to well known songs. It's actually OK stuff if I knew what they they were going on about. I know the names of 90s politicians but nothing about what they are all about so I'm like "Eh'heh" about their jokes. What annoys me is that they probably gave some drugs to the audience as they seem to pop for stuff that is barely even amusing let alone funny. Some of the women there were laughing at anything and everything like it was the funniest thing ever heard to mankind and I find that extremely annoying. Like shut up and let the rest of the people enjoy this without your overacting. I got them for a dollar each and I'll give them all a proper listen but I think I'll end up selling the lot for $15 on ebay if they all are live in concert stuff with idiots sounding off over every unfunny joke. I was sort of hoping for more general parody to popular songs (I've a few CDs like that) and less uninspired political cheese.
And I picked up two comics. "Beasts of Burden" issues 1 and 2. I bought 3 and 4 a while back and liked them, but never thought I would ever find the first two. HURRAY!
But yeah, I circled around and around (and AROUND AND AROUND) like always and looked though far too many boxes but the result has been like always. Very barren and a waste of time. What surprised me is that I saw a lot of people plunking down $10s and $20s on 80s stuff that I used to turn down for a dollar a pop not that long ago. It's a sign of why I'm never finding anything at garage sales as it seems all of it has value of approximately $10 an LP if it's a top level band. There was this one guy with boxes of interesting stuff but it all smelt of some sort of animal piss which made today extremely horrible as it was so hot and humid today too. It stunk up the show. Anyway, this one reseller woman was hoarding up just about everything from the 80s from that guy. She was snatching up anything with even the most minimal of value for her shop and all that was left in her wake was complete crap that I typically find at the thrift stores. This is why I'm not finding anything at the thrift stores as she's surely no tthe only one doing this. You get esellers buying this stuff and trying to flip for $3 to $10 or whatever they do which is sort pathetic but in this area everyone is hungry for a cheap buck. I guess the hobby has changed a lot...what killed me is that there was this young girl with her male friends and she was having them buy freaking Christopher Cross LPs for her and she was so happy about it. Amazing!!! So I guess 80s stuff really is "in" as I'm rarely finding any of it lately. I remember swimming though tons of it like it was yesterday and no one was interested at all. Oh well! And that's just the common crap. The obscure crap that I like and used to get for $1 a pop is going for collectors prices too and those are totally hard to get now. So that pretty much gets me depressed at these shows as you're left with the worse of the worse unless you are willing to pay $20 a pop for stuff you can get on CD for a dollar. I want it to be like the early 90s again where I could get tons of stuff for next to nothing and no one cared about these groups aside from myself. I'm really hoping this is a regional thing and they are far easier to get elsewhere. I'd think these LP collectors would be dieing off and leaving their junk to estate sales, but it doesn't seem to happen like that. The stuff people who die and are leaving behind those awful 50s crooner stuff that no one really wants.
