  • I wonder if that musician Montero wishes he picked a different name. His music must be buried right now.
    Word of advice: Don't order straight from Superior Viaduct. Ordered some records over 3 weeks ago and still havent been able to get in contact with them over an off-center pressing. Radio silence on all ends.

    What was the defective album, if I may ask?

    The Fall - Grotesque (After the Gramme). Been beefing up my Fall collection and they pressed almost all of them and are very well done. I have several and this is the first pressing issue I've had with them. Also got a Spacemen 3 album in the same order that is pristine. CS is their Achilles heel it seems.

    They were very responsive when I had questions about my screamers order.
    The Met Gala is like a game where ultra rich people try to be as rich and gaudy as possible while still trying to get the 99% to look at them with awe. I hate it and the commentary that surrounds it.
    Really on the fence about my first concert since Covid on Friday. Don't think I'd have this anxiety if it were the type of show I could stand in the back and watch peacefully, but its a melodeath/metalcore show and there will be lots of moshing/screaming/people in close contact. Hmmmmmmmm

    @nolalady I am, and I just checked the venue site and they'll requite vaccination proof, no tests accepted. That makes me feel a bit better, leaning towards going. For the record the lineup is Black Dahlia Murder, Rivers of Nihil & Carnifex :)

    @DJSJ if you aren't living with anyone who is immunocompromised, you are vaccinated, and the venue requires everyone else to have a vaccine, I would feel okay with going.

    I’ve been to two shows recently like this and both also required people to wear masks (not sure if yours will though). Granted, you could remove them to drink something, but i felt like requiring vaccinations and also masks was a combo that made me feel pretty safe, even in close proximity to a lot of people indoors.
    Somebody tell Awkwafina that stage name isn't doing her any justice as a serious actress.
    Goddamn are Revolver slow as hell on delivering their exclusive pressings.

    But, goddamn, are they incredible pressings and so worth it
    Apartment hunting and I found a great unit for an amazing price on craiglist. Got directed to the landlord and this guy's insisting on a $700 deposit (refundable) BEFORE giving a tour of the unit. This is a scam, yeah? Starting to get red flags.
    So Deafheaven kinda suck now. That's a real bummer.

    As well just because the band decided to make a shoegaze album instead of blackgaze doesn't mean they suck now 🙄

    Idk if I would say their new stuff sucks, but it's definitely bland and uninteresting, which is not something I could say about anything they've released before.

    I'm increasingly of the opinion that I'll need to hear the whole album to judge new output. A few times this year (Julien Baker, Half Waif, Lump, Japanese Breakfast) I've felt a bit let down with singles, and then liked them - if not grow to love them - in the context of the album. The only Deafheaven single I've really loved is the latest, In Blur, so I'm willing to give the others a shot in context.
    Why do we have timezones? That shit sucks. Let 5:00 be the same time everywhere.

    @TenderLovingKiller® AM and PM can stay, its this whole "My 3 O'clock isn't the same as east coast 3 O'Clock" thing that gets me.

    What's confusing for military people is that watching your buddy's "6" is actually watching his "12" in other parts of the world.

    I feel ya, last night had to schedule a conference call with people in Taipei, CO, and NJ, with me in Central Time. it was too early and too late for everyone all at once.
    Vinyl resellers may be awful, but at least they aren't the human garbage that are sneaker resellers. They're actually killing the hobby, or at least limiting it to the 1%. It's bonkers.
    Nobody was talking about Kanye last week nearly as much as they are now. Nobody was screaming for his album nearly as much as they are now. There never was a Friday release, that was just his marketing y'all buy into.
    Pissed at USPS. Mailed a customer a set of custom bound hardcover comics (my little side gig) and what arrived was a box with 2/3 books, all packaging removed, and a number of thrift store books in its place? What the hell guys?

    That's wild, I'm sorry. Like I would have thought lying customer too but the packaging all being removed kind of pushes me toward fraud in transit...with that said to have those books probably means the package had to be taken out of the facilities I presume?

    @debianlinux the customer is part of a trusted Facebook group and Im certain its not him.

    Yeah its absolutely maddening. It's a miracle the 2 books that did make it arrived with no damage, considering all the packaging was gone. The books that were in its place were a bunch of kids picture books and an alcoholics recovery guide. The missing book in question is volume 3 of a custom hardcover bind of the cult series Sandman Mystery Theatre....
