"I always knew people who silk screened because they were usually the weed dealers, too," Kim jokingly tells Spinner. "This was the first time I ever pushed the ink through on an album cover before."

"The people who run the record stores say that last year was like the best business day they've had in like 10 years," says Kim, who notes that kids these days "might not have experienced what a record store is like -- getting pig-eyed by the guy with the cool haircut behind the counter who thinks you're an idiot because you just asked for the new 'Hannah Montana' CD."
Deal says that if she stops by a record store on Saturday, she'll likely head straight to the W's. "Supposedly, Tom Waits is putting out 1,500 copies of a 7-inch," she says. "Now, that's not enough and they're not going to be on the racks for the punters; come on, let's face it: any cool records on Record Store Day, you know those f----ers who work in the record store are jacking that stuff before they even hit the rack, right?"
So what you're saying, Kim, is that there's a fat chance we'll find our very own, personally silk-screened copy of 'Fate to Fatal' on shelves this Saturday? That's cool -- we can always earn cred with the kid behind the register by being the first to tell him about the rumored Pixies tour this fall. Maybe they'll be able to find an extra copy in the back after all.
