Help! I neeed that Curecomminity therapy again - She spent a hundred quid on an ordinary Black Sabbath album that I've already got! How the hell did she hear a hint that I needed a copy of Mob Rules, and what kind of salespeak convinced her to spend a hundred quid on it...Oh sweet Jesus, and I keep telling her, year after year after year..Don't buy me mint I'm a drinker! I want old records to be like old leather jackets...I'm a collector not an investor...Buy me the cheap G+ copy purleeease!
Best one she got me though was funny ... I love it...I don't know do you know I've been banned from the Discogs forum and yet I still follow the thing, and the three week debate (or was it three months? Think it was just three weeks) over Pwr/Up verses PWR / Up verses etc etc etc...My vote ( I was allowed to vote as that went out of the forum) went on the only possible title that could fit with management ruling of Pwr/Up and management stepped in completely flouting their own guidelines with 'right enough debate, it's called PWR/UP'....So, yup, she bought me a copy of PWR/UP which I'm actually dead pleased about. That debate pretty much sums up my relationship with Discogs.
K..therapy over..a hundred quid on Mob Rules . Noooooooooooo!
(Edit: You probably had to be there..the PWR/UP debate...there came a point where guidelines about abbreviations were scrutinised for one member to highlight that PWR is a devowelled word rather than an abbreviation! Superb!)
