    Hit it the jackpot at my local record shop today. Went in to kill some time and headed over to the Ps, as I always do, ‘cause you never know what PJ stuff you might find it’s way in. Totally shocked to find a stack of thirteen ‘00 boots all priced at $4.99. Ran home real quick to check on which ones I already had. Turns out I only owned three of the thirteen. So these ten beauties came home with me!
    NICE score and excellent price!!

    I picked up this Hendrix LP for a couple bucks yesterday.  The vinyl looked unscratched but had a really bad warp the went from the outer edge on one side to about an inch in.  But the photo is cool so I figured it was worth a couple dollars.  But here's the weird thing-- when I got home and went to clean it, the warp looked less severe.  I thought, maybe it was just the lighting?  So I ran it through my spin clean and went off and did some other work.  A few hours later, I went and pulled the record out again and the warp was even further diminished- hardly even noticeable!  My wife said, "That must be some really thin or soft vinyl!" and I said, "No, it's as solid as any normal record.  It's just gotta be some kind of wonderful magic!"
