    I'd like to get The Stooges: Raw Power, The Breakfast Club soundtrack and the new Joey Ramone 45 but I don't how many copies my record store is going to get.

    I'm lucky here: The Exclusive Company has two stores in Milwaukee and between the two I generally find everything I am looking for.

    I got the Joey Ramone 7 inch but got burned on The Breakfast Club soundtrack. Win some, lose some. :)

    Travis, the Breakfast Club and Pretty In Pink STs were gone at all three stores I hit, although a guy in front of me had a copy of PiP. Surprisingly, they aren't hitting eBay yet...

    I got ALMOST everything I wanted, save for the McCartney "Another Day" single and The Civil Wars "Billie Jean" single.

    This was the crowd at the Exclusive Company in Greenfield WI at 9am this morning...and that is just ONE of the two lines to the registers!

    And now, MY haul! (From top to bottom: Pink Floyd "The Wall" Experience Edition; THE reason I went out early and hit three stores to track this down---Abba "Voulez-Vous" blue glitter vinyl 12" remix---the only commercially released 12" EVER in the US [already hitting $50-$100 on eBay!]; fun. "The Ghost That You Are To Me" 10" EP w/an acoustic version of "We Are Young"---on "gear-shaped" vinyl!; Of Monsters And Men 10" EP; Katy Perry "Part Of Me" 12" pink vinyl single!) And a TON of promo CDs/compilations they threw in for free!

    I saw people with all the soundtracks (The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink and Empire Records) but none were left on the table. I even waited around for a little while in the vain hope that someone would change their mind and put TBC back but that didn't happen. Maybe I'll get it off of eBay but being a comic book and occasional toy collector, I hate paying money to guys who probably only bought something so they could sell it. If I'm going to lose out on an item, I'd rather lose it to a fan who wanted the item rather than to a scalper who just bones the fans.
    That principled stand is nice but flashforward to tomorrow and I'll have begrudgingly paid $40 for The Breakfast Club on eBay. :D
