Liquidating Your Record Collection Is Harder Than You Would Think
Of course I needed additional copies of In Utero, Countdown to Extinction and the first (best) Blues Traveler album. Of course. They were only two bucks each. Oh, is that a whole set of Depeche Mode CD singles??

"Half Price Books?"
Once again, the money factor...
"Rip the CDs to a hard drive, sell the CD for a few bucks."
I can't smell a hard drive or tearfully hug an MP3.
If it were up to me, someone would come around and trade with me, like we did with baseball cards back in the day, and I could trade four records for one I really
"My vinyl copy of Neon Bible for your copy of CCR's Cosmo's Factory and that Tom Petty 45? Deal!" is how I want it to go. As my friend Colby said, "Trading three minor-league players for an aging closer."
I would be all for an impressionable teen taking charge of them, with part of the deal being the promise that he or she would write about what they are hearing, start a band, or at least grow their hair really long or dye it crazy colors in defiance of their school and parental units, nearly ruining their chances at a normal yuppie future with a shiny Jetta and 401K plan.
They could also take the CDs and vinyl and call me a fat fuck loser and sell them to buy molly, which would be fine too.
