  1. FS: Brand New Science Fiction CD 89/500

    I assume it's gone but if not, let me know what you might wanna trade for. https://www.discogs.com/user/electric_dolphin/collection?header=1
  2. He made an Instagram for his new album and posted today with caption "tomorrow" https://www.instagram.com/ogilala/
  3. Any Waffles users?

    If anyone on here uses the private tracker Waffles, I am starting to get some nice rips of my albums and uploading them. If you're interested shoot me a message and I can point you to my account. Also if I have something you want a digital-vinyl copy of, I can rip and upload it for ya.
  4. Any Waffles users?

    Nah, I'll rip anything.
  5. Any Waffles users?

    Yeah it's finally back up, a Redditor hooked me up with an account so I'm trying to get some vinyl rips up to build a nice ratio. Just discovered the software izotope which is amazing at removing pops/clicks so I think I'll be upping some really nice stuff in the coming weeks. Anyone know if What.cd is still pretty active? Been wanting an account for a while but I don't know anyone.
  6. Just wanted to brag a bit and thought you guys might like seeing some decent pics. Had to spend a pretty penny on it but it's totally worth it. Cover and vinyl: Flower etching indicating mastering by Brian Gardner: Parental advisory sticker still intact: Back:
  7. I actually sold my copy, I couldn't justify having a record worth $300 on my shelf when I had other monetary needs. However, the few times I played it, it had some very light crackles here and there, presumably just from use over the years, but only really noticeable between songs.. During the songs that pressing kicked ass. Dynamic, punchy, I loved it.

    Hope nobody here buys that shit. He won't sign them for dedicated fans but can take a stranger's wad of money for it.

    I'm gonna take the taoist approach with the CD and have no expectations, that way I cannot be disappointed There are times I want to sell things like these, I too could use an extra $300, but the times I have I've often regretted it later, once that money is gone. I can earn money other ways, I can't produce another collectible from one of my favorite bands in other ways.

    Has this not been mentioned yet? http://www.altpress.com/news/entry/brand_new_fan_countdown_reddit Reddit thread: http://www.altpress.com/_amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/brandnew/comments/6wk454/rabbit_hole_it_looks_like_theres_a_brand_new

    I need someone to explain exactly where they're hearing Weezer or AiC influence in any of these songs.

    Very, very general. I have never seen any objective evidence to show white vinyl sounding less superior. White is a dye just like black, and any other color. If any color was in fact superior you'd think it'd be a lack of additives, aka clear vinyl.

    The no-pay-until-ship gets me to order so many things I don't need from BM. Guess I'm getting a blue and pink...

    I don't even know why I try anymore with the mouthbreathers over at r/brandnew. I just find it funny at this point, here I am getting downvvoted for pointing out that CD audio is the most accurate representation when it comes to physical media: https://www.reddit.com/r/brandnew/comments/6vg02w/_/dm0551k https://www.reddit.com/r/brandnew/comments/6vg02w/_/dm0531q
  15. PO: Billy Corgan - OGILALA

    Yeah, I felt the same. Billy is actually pretty level-headed when you watch his interviews. I think media likes to take the fact that he said Trump supporters should be allowed to have free speech, and spin it to mean he's a Trump-lover with the same message as the people at the rallies. No, he's just saying he doesn't believe in silencing somebody because they have a different opinion that you. And I agree. I'm neither conservative nor liberal, but I was annoyed at a lot of the immature liberal reactions to Trump's success this past election. I don't like it either, but we have to be mature about it. I also agree with his "entertainment industry doesn't care about facts" statement. They want clicks on their websites so they can profit as much as possible from advertising.

    When I met him I asked about the Alex Jones stuff. He chuckled and said "oh yeah, the fake news stuff". He seemed to view Alex Jones like he (and many) view wrestling, which as many of us know he's big into. It's entertainment. I don't think WPC is a Trump supporter or a fan of anyone who is, but I do think he strongly believes in constitutional rights, in this case free speech. Anyway, I really don't want to get into politics so I'm leaving it at that.

    To me there's a difference between being eccentric and treating your dedicated fans like garbage. At the same meet and greet I described earlier there was a guy that flew across the country for this little half-hour acoustic show at Zuzus, brought his Billy Corgan signature Reverend guitar to have autographed, but all he got was "sorry I don't sign guitars." He'd literally given Billy thousands of dollars already, but it was too much for Billy to write his name in return. It just says something about his character. Still looking forward to hearing the album, and the SP reunion, but I have little respect left for the man himself. Done ranting now

    I used to read Pitchfork in college when I didn't know any better, but replaced it with Consequence of Sound once I discovered them, they review the same stuff plus more and are much more level headed and agenda-less. I'd recommend checking them out.
  19. PO: Billy Corgan - OGILALA

    Which really pisses me off, because when I paid $300 for one of his meet and greets and drove 7 hours to be there, he wouldn't sign my OG orange Siamese Dream record because "if I sign yours I have to sign everyone's"... "Everyone" being the 10 dedicated fans in the room. That was my 3rd and last time trying to get an autograph from him, especially when he had $250 signed albums on Zuzus website shortly thereafter.

    Pretty sure that's his partner Chloe and son Agustus Juppiter on the album cover. Although I thought he was trying pretty hard to keep his son's face from the public...

    Color is dope. Hoping that's the same as the bullmoose one I grabbed.
