I Am Gary Hampton.

So I recently started collecting vinyl.

I became obsessed over the course of a weekend and purchased almost 30 records in a very short period of time. And now I’m feeling the after affects of the splurge. But in a way, it was worth it. It’s great to actually hear legit music in my apartment now rather than playing cd’s through the Xbox.

My collection so far:

  • American Football EP
  • American Football LP
  • Attack in Black – Curve of the Earth
  • Attack in Black – Marriage
  • Band of Horses – Everything All The Time
  • Band of Horses – Cease to Begin
  • Cursive – The Ugly Organ
  • Dashboard Confessional – The Shade of Poison Trees
  • The Get Up Kids – 4 Minute Mile
  • The Get Up Kids – Something To Write Home About
  • The Good Life – Album of the Year
  • The Meligrove Band – Planets Conspire
  • The Most Serene Republic/Headlights 7″
  • Neutral Milk Hotel – In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
  • Of Sinking Ships…
  • Onelinedrawing – Visitor
  • The Postal Service – Give Up
  • Radiohead – OK Computer
  • Radiohead – In Rainbows
  • Saves The Day – Stay What You Are
  • Say Anything – …Is/Was a Real Boy
  • Thom Yorke – The Eraser
  • Thrice – The Illusion of Safety
  • Thrice – The Alchemy Index (x4)
  • Tokyo Police Club – A Lesson in Crime
  • Tokyo Police Club – Elephant Shell

Any suggestions? Post your vinyl collection list in the comments, and if you don’t collect vinyl, what do you collect?
