where can u buy cheep records ??

Probably Good Will, Salvation Army or any other second hand store.  Oh and I have kinda noticed that the bigger the city your in the cheaper the records are, but ya never know.

If you are not vigilant and demanding of your talent everyday, you will slowly become what you hate.

My wist!!

I'm making my punk friends little baskets (out of records) and filling them up with marble magnets (cool pics that I've been collecting), toothbrush bracelets, wrist cuffs, purse (appliqued with a skull), a recycled trash belt for the guy. I went to my local recycling center and I get as many free records I want. Yay! I love recycling centers.

25 cents at the local GoodWill.  A few of my punk friends made personalized ducttape wallets as gifts.  It seemed simple enough, but they were personal (ex, mine had a pair of red lips on it from RHPS).  Also, I knew someone who made a wallet chain out of soda tabs.  I am not sure how she did it though.

ok, as an old(ish) punk type chick, i would suggest duct tape is always good. also anything you make from trash. stay away from cute, and keep it simple. my friends love the packing tape wallets and the bottlecap pins i've been making for fun. for xmas i'm making them stuff out of pabst blue ribbon cans.

You can make bowls out of records. I do it ALL the time and I'm going to put nick nack stuff in them & give them for presents for christmas. I work at goodwill, records are 69 cents, by the way.

Those are all some awesome idea.  Can someone please explain how to make those record bowls? sounds intriguing!  Shocked

scarfs are too an option!

if some are ska kind of guys then make some out of checkerboard fabric , sew on some [handmade] patches and a pocket for their cigs [if they smoke] or just random pockets at the bottom.

or shirts are always awesome. especially if you give the most hardcore guy a 'poser' shirt  Grin just make sure he has a sense of humor.....

or 'so hardcore it hurts' ; 
'is really softcore'

i started making bracelets out of cans and colored vinyl tape.  for my friends i'm making some out of pbr and schlitz cans.   i've also made a belt buckle out of a tape which goes over well.
mix cds are also good.  i listen to a lot of older punk from the 70s and early 80s and am willing to share any info
a grab bag with spikes, safety pins, pins (i  make marble ones), and maybe one of the above would work great.
and you're never too punk for scarves....just make sure they're in red or white and black (stripes and checkboards work good) with  pins or spikes
you can find cheap records at local thrift stores like salvation army or savers.  or check out your local library, mine always has a ton for 25 cents

....like you're grandma's sewing machine on acid...

I am going to customize a guitar strap. I don't know if he plays one, but if he does, he'l probably like it.
I'm buying one with a click-on system you can put on the guitar and click the strap on and off when you like. I am going to paint skulls on it and add chains, and maybe punch in some holes and rings.
