I should, lol!
The difference between us peeps is that we have to look for this stuff, my dad's generation just bought it when it came out. If my dad behaved when he was a kid in the late sixties/ early seventies, my grandmother would buy him a record a week. Let's say that he has some pretty impressive stuff, and yet, he managed not to wear it out, well except his copy of Rolling Stone's Sticky Fingers which is trashed, lol, I guess he really liked playing the song "Bitch." But the sleeve is in pretty good shape and it has a zipper! :D
Dunno, I guess I do envy that generation. We can get vinyl in thrift shops, and random places, but if we want new stuff, it costs a lot, dude, that OK Computer Record I bought was way too expensive! But during my dad's time, he would just get his mom to give him 7-10 bucks a week, lol, head to the local K-Mart or record store, and buy a new album and it was an experience. Unlike now when we just download stuff! :(
Dude he has the Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon with liner notes and all, first ****ing pressing! :O

And for comedy's sake, lol, which really isn't that funny. My pop's cousin had a pretty impressive vinyl collection of his own, but became a Jehovah's Witness, lol, and apparently they are not allowed to listen to certain types of music and he threw away his records. He was into the heavier stuff, think Black Sabbath, Kiss, Uriah Heep, you get the idea. When my dad heard about this he got pissed, and was like dude, why didn't you just give me that stuff instead of throwing it away? And his cousin was like, I am not going to give you that blasphemy. Haha!
My dad called him a Judas Witness loser, lol, and they didn't speak for over a decade, haha! My dad is pretty awesome! Anyone who would throw, gasp, like about 200 records, is a loser.
