lol Fall Out Boy is everywhere and I love it.

I agree so much with this. It's such bullshit looking at, say pressings of For All Of This set at 100 dollars buy it now for literally months. If I were to ever sell something like that, right after it came out, it would only be to get the money that I paid back, not to make a profit

THIS especially pisses me off. Jesus, it's out of 100 and a lot of people were dying to get this (I had no chance, started collecting vinyl literally the day after this sold out when I bought the Acoustic EP.) It's been on ebay forever for over three times the initial price. Such a dick move.

Hot Topic needs to really be blamed, mainly for being so careless and letting people buy multiple copies at once.
I agree, it's not like they still wouldn't sell them all.

I agree that the exclusives have been awesome.

Vinyl is about the whole physical experience. Color goes into that too.

The whole idea behind limited pressings of records is incredibly dumb anyways. All it does is encourage this kind of behavior by enticing collectors to buy it and hope the price goes up. But like, a band doesn't profit when a record gets resold, so why does a band need to encourage that behavior? Do they think it will cause more records to be sold?

There this weird irony at play. If Title Fight were to sell copies of the Floral Green colored pressing for $100, people would throw fits at them charging so much. So instead what happens is the guys with fast fingers and nothing better to do make an $80 profit just by making a few mouse clicks and we're supposed to all be okay with that? If the demand dictates that the record be sold at $100, I'd rather the band get that whole $100 instead of random blokes on the internet.
well well said.
