I also picked up these 2 jems yesterday before the midnight RSD shopping spree.

great pulls, everyone.
I stopped by the places i mentioned and got some stuff I was looking for:
sensefield - killed for less
into another - s/t
kinda just got these just because:
minus the bear 7"
Eddie vedder 7"
la dispute - wildlife on pink /100
taking back Sunday live at fingerprints/looney tunes
got these that weren't exclusives:
frank Sinatra - greatest hits vol 2
black flag - damaged
balance and composure 7"
hot water music/clairmel split
not bad... I did kinda want that crosses split, too...
Ian, what time did you go to fingerprints? I looked at the vc thread last night and people were already camped out at midnight!
I had brunch and strolled into the shops around 2:30-4pm and felt lucky to get what I did.
oh and bionics had a copy of thrice's major/minor for $25.
Not bad selection for not being one of those first in the crowd. We had fun at rhino, met some fun people as we stood/sat in line for 3 hours. All so worth it (see Furnitur3's post) :)

anyway, i always get a smile on my face when i see fellow FAR fans. i don't have a lot of tattoos, but one of mine is the onelinedrawing logo from jonah's current work.
ps. sorry my pic sucks guys. i'll fix it later once i get some sleep. the picture posting function on the app sucks balls.
we got to fingerprints just before they opened at 6am, there was a line around the block but once they opened we were in the store in a few minutes so not bad, the longest part was the line to actually purchase.
got someone on VC to get the dave hause 7" i wanted in trade for the horrible crows 7"
heres a blog i wrote about RSD w/ pics of what i got
The vinyl thread (v2.0)
I did go to rhino today and I didn't see the Beach House 7" I wanted or anything else that really interested but I didn't pick one off the wall - Swans "greed" from 86
