Here's your question and answer of the week from the Punknews Formspring:

Q: On Punknews, and many other sites, I've seen certain records recommended for fans and collectors, thus suggesting some collectors are not fans. Are there people that collect records not for the music, but just because the record itself seems interesting?

A: Yes. People do that all the time. My boyfriend bought 2 copies of the first pressing of Latterman's No Matter Where We Go..! just to be a snob. I've also seen Into It. Over It.'s Evan Weiss complain about reissues of records because it makes the original pressing less valuable. I'm not too sure how vinyl nerds brains work. There are people who need to have first pressings or every single color of certain releases. I've watched it in my boyfriend as he scoured websites and record stores for every Shook Ones release. I think it's some weird compulsive need to have a complete collection. Also, the value of one's collection is super important to collectors.

I honestly just want the prettiest color whatever record I'm ordering is available in. I'll settle for black though.
