Gotta cath 'em all (a thought on the limited stuff)
« on: September 06, 2016, 08:56:02 AM »
It's funny, now that the Melvins are releasing hyper-hyper limited stuff, it's making collecting their things really fun again. For me, it has been a little bit of a drag the last 18 months or so.

When they first started putting out the really nice artwork/limited stuff in 2010(?) I wanted to get at least one version of every limited item. At the rate back then, that was fairly easy to achieve (it helped that I lived in the bay area, where the band plays like 3 times a year).

After that, they ramped up the limited stuff, and by 2014 or so, there were so many different limited things (with a fairly hefty price tag) collecting the rare stuff felt more like an obligation, and an expensive one at that. I didn't want to be shelling out a few hundred bucks  few months, but I would be disappointed if I didn't get the rare items. (As a side note, the band/mackie/haze really have done a nice job turning these things into works of art)

But now, there are hyper-hyper limited releases and no one can possibly get everything. So, it kind of makes it more fun. I get the rare things that I can get, and what I can't get, or don't want to spend a lot of money on, I don't get. If you can't possibly get everything, then you don't really sweat not having a complete collection.

It's just fun to see what you can get, and the fact that the latest things are mega-rare, does make them that much more special. And if you can't get the mega rare stuff, well, there will be something else cool in 4-6 months. Just my two cents.

Are you suggesting the Melvins have a problem with their urinary tracts?  :wink:

The hunt is sometimes more exciting than the cath.

I sense golden showers of humor just ahead.
