    Isn't this nice to have an open forum to a rock star? You can ask him anything, even if it seems way over the top and/or impossible! Here goes: Hey Ben. My request is simple. There's maybe 30 of us here? Half that are kind of active, the other half are dormant. So, what I'm asking isn't too out there. What I would like is a copy of the Sha Sha RSD release on white vinyl. NOT FOR FREE obv. I'm sure the group would agree: We are hard working people who pay bills and are willing to shell out a few shekels for, what amounts to, the BK Holy Grail. I mean, I sometimes see this album on Discogs for 300,000 yen! (hey, siri, what's 300,000 yen in US dollars? $2,844!) There are 1200 copies of this album that will most assuredly fall into the hands of the greedy Discogs/Ebay seller who won't buy it for the love of music. Not to mention RSD has become kind of a cluster. I visit two local record stores that do things completely different and it's tough to get out there with 50 other people, 75% of whom are these resellers. They aren't buying it because it makes them feel feelings that they felt when they were 23 and taking road trips and partying with friends. They are buying it so they can have more money for their next sale. I understand if the answer is no. Some of these things are out of your control, and I get that. But mull it over, my friend. You are a special type of rock star. The type that personalizes orders from your website. I bought Go Fly A Kite in your store and you sent old backstage passes and stickers and a note with it! WHO DOES THAT? Thanks for hearing me out. You don't know I'm here me ouuuuut. Signed, Matt

    My first love was Weezer. The Blue Album came out when I was 12. A friend from school gave me a copy on cassette. And I listened to it non-stop. I would say the only reason why I bought a CD player was because I knew my mother was getting me Pinkerton for my 14th birthday. So yeah, The Blue Album and Pinkerton were my first two CDs. Restraining Bolt by Radish was third.

    Agreed. I have asked about 4 people in multiple states to keep an eye out for this for me. Such a low print run for such a seminal album. I really want to score a copy to replace my long ago pawned Australian promo (regrets) but I don't have much hope left.

    I'm super happy that I was finally recently able to get a copy of Ben Kweller's self titled album on vinyl. With the RSD release of Sha Sha hopefully I can finish out my collection... Anyone else have a BK vinyl collection they are excited about?
