    I thought Target sold out days ago?  I shouldve ordered from there if it came back lol.  
    there were 7 online only available when I ordered?

    just looked right now and it says 6 left.....

    Im not sure if that’s the one im after, mickey.  I ordered the new pressing. This one may be the 2019 one (which is still good)

    it is. just looked up the barcode on discogs.

    target is pretty light on details.
    It's the right one.  https://www.target.com/p/oliver-nelson---the-blues-and-abstract-truth--verve-acoustic-sounds-series---lp---vinyl-/-/A-82778591

    Verve/Acoustic Sounds Series.  Acoustic Sounds = AP = QRP.  These are all companies owned by Chad Kassem.  

    Unfortunately the price is now 34.99 on Target and it's backordered.  Might as well buy is from AS directly since it's in stock.  https://store.acousticsounds.com/d/162861/Oliver_Nelson-Blues_And_The_Abstract_Truth-180_Gram_Vinyl_Record

    Mine still hasn't been shipped, so that's annoying.

    Because I support the notion of shopping locally, I'll consider buying new vinyl LP's at our local Target when two things happen:
    1.  They start carrying more than 4 or 5 titles, all of which I have no interest in, and,
    2.  When they stop referring to them as vinyls.  That's right, vinyls with a zzzzzzzz:lol:

    I shouldn't let stuff like that bother me, but it does, especially when the changing language is shown to be egregiously inaccurate.  Beside the misnomer "vinyls", another common one is "shop local".  "Shop" in this case, is a verb.  Using the adjective "local" to modify "shop" illustrates a lack of basic understanding of the English language.  "Locally", on the other hand, is an adverb, and is used properly in the term "shop locally".

    I know a lot of people will say or think, "BFD, what does it matter if people know what you mean?".  I guess it matter to me because language, the way it is developing, is a major example of "dumbing down", the intentional diminishing of intelligent expression.  That bugs me.

    GFY...

    Well, my point was not to show how smart I am and how dumb others are.  Not at all and I'm bummed that you would suggest I do that.  I wasn't born with perfect language skills and I am far from perfect now.  I was well into middle age before I learned to say "well" instead of "good" when asked how I was doing.  I appreciate that someone wised me up on that.  And that's just one example.  There are plenty others.  My passing along some things I've learned does not make me better than anyone else. 
    Goddamn it!  I thought you might have some better notion of who I am.  If I've given such an erroneous a viewpoint of who I am, then I must be the most stupid ass here.  Bummer. 
    And then on top of it, you tell me "GFY", "go fuck yourself", but don't have the nerve to just outright say it out right. 
    This isn't the first time you've shown contempt for me.  Well, OK, fine then, if you think that lowly of me, you should put me on ignore here so we're done.  And fuck me off your FB page too.
    Adios.

    Sorry everybody else.  Probably should have kept this in PMs.  I just don't like being told publicly to fuck off.

    Sorry everybody else.  Probably should have kept this in PMs.  I just don't like being told publicly to fuck off.
    THIS WAS A JOKE!!!  NOT MEANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY!!!

    My apologies Brian, it was in no way meant to be taken seriously.  I am truly sorry.  I thought it was funny.  If you knew me face to face you'd have laughed(hopefully).

    I'm reading it now and it's not funny in plain text.  I pictured myself being dramatic and flamboyant when I wrote this.

    Lesson learned to be more specific when it is meant nearly as a joke...

    Sorry.

    I thought Target sold out days ago?  I shouldve ordered from there if it came back lol.  
    there were 7 online only available when I ordered?

    just looked right now and it says 6 left.....

    Im not sure if that’s the one im after, mickey.  I ordered the new pressing. This one may be the 2019 one (which is still good)

    it is. just looked up the barcode on discogs.

    target is pretty light on details.
    It's the right one.  https://www.target.com/p/oliver-nelson---the-blues-and-abstract-truth--verve-acoustic-sounds-series---lp---vinyl-/-/A-82778591

    Verve/Acoustic Sounds Series.  Acoustic Sounds = AP = QRP.  These are all companies owned by Chad Kassem.  

    Unfortunately the price is now 34.99 on Target and it's backordered.  Might as well buy is from AS directly since it's in stock.  https://store.acousticsounds.com/d/162861/Oliver_Nelson-Blues_And_The_Abstract_Truth-180_Gram_Vinyl_Record

    Mine still hasn't been shipped, so that's annoying. 

    Because I support the notion of shopping locally, I'll consider buying new vinyl LP's at our local Target when two things happen:
    1.  They start carrying more than 4 or 5 titles, all of which I have no interest in, and,
    2.  When they stop referring to them as vinyls.  That's right, vinyls with a zzzzzzzz:lol:
    I am writing into Webster to have Vinyls included into the new vernacular of American English.

    Gotta tell you, brother, if you do and it goes through, you will be hunted down, harassed and tortured mercilessly by at least half of the 103,310 members of the Steve Hoffman  music forums.  :lol:  
    I hear the term "words and meanings change and new words are developed over necessity".  Plus I'd do it just to piss people off, lol!!!

    I shouldn't let stuff like that bother me, but it does, especially when the changing language is shown to be egregiously inaccurate.  Beside the misnomer "vinyls", another common one is "shop local".  "Shop" in this case, is a verb.  Using the adjective "local" to modify "shop" illustrates a lack of basic understanding of the English language.  "Locally", on the other hand, is an adverb, and is used properly in the term "shop locally".

    I know a lot of people will say or think, "BFD, what does it matter if people know what you mean?".  I guess it matter to me because language, the way it is developing, is a major example of "dumbing down", the intentional diminishing of intelligent expression.  That bugs me.
    When people start to dissect what you wrote but understood what you meant is just petty to me.  You'll see that a lot on AMT.  Sooo many people want to show how smart they are/dumb you are.

    I can do 10 million tasks with my hands, form critical thinking and problem solving but I used the wrong word in a sentence?

    GFY...

    Well, my point was not to show how smart I am and how dumb others are.  Not at all and I'm bummed that you would suggest I do that.  I wasn't born with perfect language skills and I am far from perfect now.  I was well into middle age before I learned to say "well" instead of "good" when asked how I was doing.  I appreciate that someone wised me up on that.  And that's just one example.  There are plenty others.  My passing along some things I've learned does not make me better than anyone else. 
    Goddamn it!  I thought you might have some better notion of who I am.  If I've given such an erroneous a viewpoint of who I am, then I must be the most stupid ass here.  Bummer. 
    And then on top of it, you tell me "GFY", "go fuck yourself", but don't have the nerve to just outright say it out right. 
    This isn't the first time you've shown contempt for me.  Well, OK, fine then, if you think that lowly of me, you should put me on ignore here so we're done.  And fuck me off your FB page too.
    Adios.

    Sorry everybody else.  Probably should have kept this in PMs.  I just don't like being told publicly to fuck off.
