records

i have been collecting music since i was about 12 years old. i have records that mean a lot to me but i only recently made, in my opinion, my best record find ever. i was at wayne state in the business computer lab, headphones plugged into one of the computers that i have downloaded about 50 songs to thanx to:

http://www.fatwreck.com/audio/
and most of all
http://www.sublimearchive.com/audio-sublime.php
it helps me not think about statistical methods. anyways, i was searching through http://www.gemm.com for sublime records, when i so happened to find this record:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Sublime-Date-Rape-12-Green-Vinyl-RARE-ONLY-300-MADE_W0QQitemZ4841977016QQcategoryZ306QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

the only difference was this one was twenty bucks. having been searching for this record for years, i almost couldn't believe it. i pulled out my pen and notebook and wrote down the seller's name and email address. when i returned home after another long critical thinking lecture (we did not land on the moon), i ordered the record. i heard back from the seller who told me that he would be shipping it out the next day. so began the wait.
a week passed and i finally received it, and when i did it was kind of a surprised because it included this:

as it turns out, the seller of the record owned a club in california that sublime played in 1991 and he claims that brad gave him the record personally. i guess i believe him because of the press photo (kelly vargas rocking the drums, pretty crazy). needless to say this record will hold a special place in my collection, check it out:
