Since the stock market collapse I have been keeping a tigher reign on cd spending. I know it doesnt affect the day to day living but has anyone else been feeling the same way??

I am, but not because of the economy. I'm just getting burned out on collecting right now. Ain't that a bitch? Smile

My personal economy was fucked prior to the stock market nosedive, so I haven't really been collecting for awhile.

I've been picking up some good used vinyl though...

Not mine I was broke before all of this lol.. Thankfully the gas prices are starting to drop though I think its around $3.15ish by me now. Still a bit much especially since I have a Chevy Tahoe and to fill that thing up a week is like $65 on empty.

Im broke myself, anything I can get cheap used isnt a problem. The rare ones are what I slacked off on, so much money. If I ever meet the guy again who stole some of my collection, Ill kill him.

I've slowed down, but it's mostly for the sake of the twins. That Similac is expensive!! Most of my purchases lately have come from e-bay. I sell off the free giveaway stuff (t-shirts, bobbleheads, etc.) that I get from work, then use the money to make other purchases. So aside what I put out on shipping charges, it's almost like getting them for free. I recently sold a Flyers Simon Gagne bobblehead (that I got for nothing) for nearly $40.

I'll pick up cd's cheap at flea markets too and sell them on ebay. A Heaven's Edge cd that I got for $2 sold for $17.39. Not a bad turnaround.

I've made quite a bit on out of print jazz CDs over the years. I remember finding two copies of this Wayne Shorter album (The All Seeing Eye) for $5.99 at this tiny record store in Seattle. I put them on eBay a few months apart and got $64 for the first one and $67 for the second. Good profit margin there!

It's since been reissued, you have to grab those opportunity windows while their open.

I have been limiting myself to what i earn off ebay and trades. I have some decent stuff coming but its harder to get newer prog like what you would find at the lasers edge. I am still wondering why the prices are so high at a place like NEH though. They keep screaming its due to currency conversion but now that the US $ is gaining in strength their prices dont seem to be following...

Born Again is easily one of my favorite metal albums...but $1500??? I bet you could get Ian Gillan to hang out with you for that much. Cool

I'm waiting for the guy to get back to me now, he seems pretty negotiable on it. If it was any other album, it wouldnt be such a big deal to me, as it is, I dont want to spend anywhere near that much. Its only missing one thing though, the Vertigo pressing of the album, my dumbass ditched it in favor of the remaster.
