Please feel free to add to the ever-growing list of abbreviations we use in regards to our record collecting talk here on the forum.
Here's a few I use regularly, most are abbreviated song names.

LB - Lafayette Blues
HP LB - Hand Painted Lafayette Blues
DT3 - Denial Twist 3"
WS - White Stripes
Incho - Triple Inchophone player
GBMS - Get Behind Me Satan
FILWAG - Fell in Love With A Girl

Raconteurs
SASG - Steady As She Goes
Racs - Raconteurs
JW, BB, LJ and PK - Jack White, Brendan Benson, Little Jack and Patrick Keeler
BBS - Broken Boy Soldiers
COTL - Consolers of the Lonely
SYS - Salute Your Solution

Dead Weather
DW - Dead Weather
HYFTH - Hang you from the heavens
TMLYM - Treat Me Like Your Mother

Tri - Tri Coloured record (Nashville limited records 100 copies / 50 mail order)
Biz - Bizarro reversed record (LA limited records 100? copies)
