WFMU Record Fair

I went to the WFMU Record Fair yesterday. Kicked my ass.

WFMU is the world famous massive record sale they have in NYC once a year. People come in from all around the world. I was like "I'll come in on the train during nap time, rip through there, and be out in an hour and a half..."

Well, I got through one row (of maybe 12?) and I burned through an hour of my time and a third of my money. "damn, i got to pace myself!"

I was so stoked to find this booth... "avant african latino tropical" is my favorite genre.

This is more like it, dub dub dub dub dub... actually, come to think of it do you think they were trying to simulate the Echo-Plex?

This is the last record I bought after I burned through all my cash and texted my wife for an hour extension. VU box set with a bunch of old rarities and so forth. I saw it at one table for $120. Then a few down some guy had it for $60 due to the box being a little chewed up. I finally got it for $51.75 and pocket lint after begging a bit and turning my pockets inside out as proof that it was last of my cash. I was like a crack head.

You really do need three days and all possible disposable cash you can scrounge up to do this thing right.

Getting rid of the evidence on the way home on the train.

Got some good stuff but I'll save that for another post. Blayyyter.
