I wanted to celebrate my 2000th post, so here's a new cd porn thread with some of my rarest USA cds... there is an intruder among these, let's see who can spot it :)

I think if someone wasn't lucky enough to get the eternal-holy-grails like Impact, Telepathy, Drop Dead before now, he'll certainly won't get them in the future. Time passes, its harder and harder. Unless they do a "Silence" :)

Everything is available for a price.

The real success is finding these for non pay-my-home-mortgage-for-the-month prices.

Impact and Drop Dead for example do pop up from time to time.

Not sure about Telepathy since I don't care. It's one of the most over rated annoying CD's I've ever had the misfortune of listening to. Drums should not sound like a counting machine :lol:

It's unlikely for those specific 3, but could happen for others =)

Anyway, you seem more worried about the cds you are missing rather than being happy/proud of what you have (and we know they are a LOT, many of which i don't have either), this is a simple concept i have managed to understand in the last couple of years, i was like that too (admittedly)... :?

Ps. Even with that annoying drum bass sounds Telepathy is still better than 90% of the so-called "rarities" (starting with Arbisucker and Craaper) :P

I beg to disagree, the point of collecting is always think about what you are missing :) This is what drives us forward.

That does not mean one should be toxicly envious of others' collections and I believe many laughably are - even judging by some stories I've heard from you.

This is a contradiction then, somewhat, because first you complain that it's almost impossible to find certain cds (so I guess this leads to some kind of frustration), but you underline that it's the strenght that motivates you ? So you are driven forward by frustration ? :)

I understand what Heathen is saying though.

I am always thinking about the most wanted items on my want list more than some recently acquired gems.

I used to always think about Impact and Evil Sinner because those two were my most wanted CDs. I finally was able to get them
so now I think about some other obscure CDs that I want. I don't really have a clear cut number one most wanted cd on my
want list currently so it changes among a few now.

But I definitely agree with the statement that he makes when he says "the point of collecting is always think about what you are missing". It does drive me forward.

You are trying to be too smart for your own good. I am hunting for a whole lot of CDs, the ones that are impossible to find are only a small percentage. And even then there is always hope for a miracle. Happy hunting.

This is exactly what i said. You don't even reserve 1 second to enjoy those top scores (which most collectors out there will never find) 'cause you have your mind 100% set on those you are missing, leading to frustration as years go by (as some other people got or found them and you don't etc.), but isn't more sane to have a 50-50 attitude (=enjoying what you have while still looking for the next scores ? That's what i meant dear Heathen ;) !)

Another photo, this one i made some time ago, it's about Toxic Records, i'm quite sure nobody will notice a detail about a cd... (yes Massacre sux and Inner Sanctum has the original artwork but that's not the point)
