I first got interested in music at a young age. My parents listened to the radio a lot in the '80's, and I was exposed to Depeche Mode, Men Without Hats, Madonna, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, etc.

As I grew in to my teens, I discovered gothic and industrial music and clubs, and was hooked. At this point, I really got into collecting music from those genres. At one point, I started working at clubs and DJ'ing as an excuse to buy more music. That went on for about a decade in the late '90's to 2000's, working at clubs like Soil, Therapy, Warsaw, and many others.

I've since stopped DJ'ing, and my collection has grown to include much more than just goth & industrial, although those and all related genres are still my primary collecting focus.

I'm more than happy to provide information about anything in my collection, but please don't bother asking if I'll burn, rip, or otherwise make you a copy of anything. I only deal in originals.

Cylinder mould variations: the most important piece of information that follows "PAT'D" on these cylinders is the number of dots. They represent take #s. Most Blue Amberols were dubbed from Diamond Disc records and Edison required 3 takes of all selections. Frequently at least 2 or 3 different takes were released. One dot = take 1; two dots = take 2; three dots = take 3. The number that follows the dot(s) is the mould number, and can run into high numbers depending on the popularity of the release. I wouldn't create new releases based solely on mould numbers. This is akin to a runout variation. However, I would definitely create new releases for different takes of a release, and mention this in the release notes.
