That was my line of thinking when I ignored the new pressings available over at REVHQ. A few months later, Rune over at Droid Rage posted up an article on record collecting. Marcus and Lins participated in the interview, and since I've known those dudes for a while, I figured that I'd check it out. As I read through it, and saw the photos capturing the idiocy of everyone's collections, it ignited that old spark of doing stupid shit and having fun. Did I need more Have Heart records? No. Did I want more, and increase how dumb I could get with my collection? Oh hell yes.
By the time I'd returned to the REV store, two of the four new pressings were sold out, so I grabbed what was available. 150 pressed on mint green, and 200 pressed on red vinyl.
It was stupid how excited I was to receive these two 7 inches. It was a complete waste of money, and I had much better things to buy...but I don't know if anything else would have put a smile on my face the same way that taking this group picture did. 20 copies of the Have Heart 2003 demo, and I have still barely scratched the surface.
