So i thought id try something this year and see how it went. We're all nerds here. i think we can freely admit that. and nerds like to buy crap that most normal people don't give a shit about. so i thought i'd throw up some of my favorite purchases this year. and also i'm curious what you a-holes bought as well. so feel free to comment, make fun of, or say whatever else your blackened hearts desire.

Warrel Dane "Shadow Work" vinyl
if you read my year end list, then this should be obvious.

Caleb Scofield Benefit Zozobra Vinyl
this was such a huge loss for the hardcore community. glad i could get in on this and help out.

Killing Joke 40th Anniversary Tour Concert tee
 i waited a long time to see these guys. finally got my chance back in september at skully's in columbus. the same place i had tickets for 3 years prior when the whole u.s. part of the tour was canceled.

Tool "Undertow" vinyl repress
Faith No More "Angel Dust" vinyl repress
White Zombie "La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol.1" purple vinyl, numbered
no 3 albums more represent 1993 for me. they were, and still are, a huge part of my life. 

Nevermore "Enemies of Reality" and "This Godless Endeavor" represses
these were a no brainer for me. i also have the "Politics of Ecstacy" RSD press from a couple years ago. hoping they do "Dead Heart in Dead World" and "Dreaming Neon Black" soon

The Secret "Lux Tenebris" black and silver vinyl
yes i bought both. no i haven't opened the silver copy.

Dead Cross 10" EP swanp green
this was a surprise release. i had it ordered within seconds of receiving the email. the only other record i ordered quicker was the gold repress of "Jane Doe" last year. also should be noted that i have the gold version of the dead cross full length and no i won't open that either.

i bought a lot of shit this year, but these were just some of my favorites. also 2 purchases that should have made the list but were pulled by amazon at the last minute were the nevermore cd box set and the type o negative "Bloody Kisses" silver vinyl repress. fuck you amazon
