How was 2021 in terms of buying records for you?
I got a lot of discounts on Discogs from sellers who think this person they are dealing with - Simone - is an attractive Italian girl who's into Captain Beefheart and early Kraftwerk.
Of course I fostered the myth by having a girl in my profile picture and with a ludricrous usage of emoticons.
Hey can I have 30% off?? ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) B-|

Guys, it works, I don't know what to say. Loads of wankers in this world.



What's your discogs account?

I've bought more in 2021 than I have in ages. I think it's the first year that i've bought all of my favourite 20 albums of the year before the year has finished.

Since Brexit, buying new records has been made tricky because of insane import taxes, but I have one or two reliable german websites that i've started using (can you recommend any Dutch ones?).

Of older stuff, I've tended to buy more jazz this year.

My aim for 2022 is to bulk up my Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Bob Dylan collections. I have loads of CDs by each but hardly any records.

my Discogs account: www.discogs.com/it/user/simonemo

as for shops Titch, I don't think I've ever bought anything from an online store here in the NL, as I mostly buy second hand from private sellers (or second hand from the shop, in person), but I'm linking you a few stores/chains that have excellent shops near where I live:


www.platomania.nl/ (highly recommended!)
velvetmusic.nl/en

I slowed down a lot. 2020 with lockdown was mental. I've literally no room for anymore now. So need to be really selective what I purchase and try to purge the stuff that I don't really need. I kinda want a collection where everything I own I consider a classic (4.5 stars and above on RYM) but I can't help but buy cheap shit when I see it.
