  1. Most Anticipated 2018 releases

    Red Hare.
  2. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies

    Thanks to the helpful advice from @The Ghost of Randy Savage I did exactly what he mentioned and it was fairly easy after wrapping my head around the whole process. There are a number of different exchanges, but most of the other others one i looked at required all types of personal info. Coinbase lets you just sign up and then buy either Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, or Litecoin with a credit card or bank account. I personally bought Ethereum cause i liked the name and it seemed to be doing well. I also signed up for a Cryptonator account and then transferred the ethereum to a digital wallet there. Through Cryptonator you can then exchange whatever you transferred in for any number of currencies. Bytecoin is just over a cent, so i assume there is fair amount of growth potential. People are talking up Ripple, but oddly the Ripple exchange has been down for a day or two. If you use your credit card through coinbase it might get flagged by the card provider, so you might have to redo the purchase after vouching for it.
  3. Netflix / Amazon Prime original series

    This. I got about 15 minutes into the dubbed version and turned it off. The dubbing was annoying in general, but the English dialog was just plain bad. The scene with the kids bickering in the morning was brutal - "I'm on a hunger strike until the world's problems are solved!" If you can switch to the original German with English subtitles I will give it another shot.
  4. Secret Santa 2K17!!!! ***SIGN UP CLOSED!***

    Gonna be heading out town tomorrow morning, so now is a perfect time to Secret Santa. First, I would like to thank my SS, who went all out. I am beyond pleased by their efforts. Let's start with some Star Wars Tiki Mugs with a rad Tiki cocktail book. Some drinks, both flammable and not, shall be had. To continue with the Star Wars theme we have the Death Troopers book and a herp field guide. I have read most of the cannon books and a goof chunk of the legends material, but i have not read anything in the Death Troopers series. I am excited to crack it open. And we can never have too many field guides. I have the Peterson, but not this Audubon. So I am glad to add it to the collection. Here are 4 LPs! I do love me some Joy Division. There is the Warsaw boot on white and the Les Bains Douches live 2xLP. Excellent. JD is a band i love that until now had nothing on vinyl. Then there is an American/Japanese HC comp and 1st SSD record. I will play Jolly Old Sant Nick later... Now on to the 7 inches.... A Pallbearer flexi. Pallbearer are great - Heatless is the best album of 2017. A didn't have this flexi. Now I do! The No Statik "No Hospice" 7" on yellow and a Lee Scratch Perry 7". Excellent. Plus, there was a crap tons of posters, including a sweet large Coliseum fold-out. Using my powers of deductive reasoning, my SS was @roadmonkey! Thanks again. You did a fantastic job. Aces. Merry Xmas everyone and happy new year. I am not sure what it's like where everyone lives, but Christmas Eve is non-stop fireworks, so i am now going to lay on the couch and comfort my 60lb lapdog...
  5. Iron Maiden Reissues!

    Agreed. SiT is soild stem to stern. It's probably the most consistent album song to song. Powerslave is great, but Back in the Village is no Aces High or 2 Minutes to Midnight.
  6. Secret Santa 2K17!!!! ***SIGN UP CLOSED!***

    Excellent deductive reasoning. Also, my screen name is buried in the mix cd, vis-a-vis the small brown bike track. There is some great 90s emo/post hardcore in there, with a bunch of local NJ/Staten Island bands.
  7. Secret Santa 2K17!!!! ***SIGN UP CLOSED!***

    Bingo. I am glad you dig everything. I had a blast putting it together. You're right, the pallbearer record is one of the year's best. It's at the top of my list. I also need to frame that Marald Van Haasteren print. I hope you and your girlfriend enjoy the movie, glad you had a blue-ray player. Happy holidays to you and yours. If i may ask what gave may identity away?

    SS gift arrived today in one big ass box! Will wait to open it. Stay tuned. ** Whoever has the power should swap the sticky for this year's SS thread.
  9. PO for the new Red Death LP went up earlier today. Get on this quick as they still have some red-orange mix (/200) at the moment. One of the many DC bands just killing it these days. http://triplebrecords.limitedrun.com/products/604951-red-death-formidable-darkness-cd-lp When a band forms, as Red Death did in late 2013, primarily out of reverence for Corrosion of Conformity — and especially when half the members hail from North Carolina — their second LP is bound to have a lot riding on it. Yet to say that Red Death have risen to the occasion is to say not nearly enough for Formi-dable Darkness, their new eight-song masterwork. It isn’t just their Animosity; it’s the best record to emerge from the hardcore scene’s hallowed metal/crossover wing since Iron Age’s The Sleeping Eye rewrote our DNA in 2009. Everything that made 2015’s Permanent Exile LP and 2016’s Deterrence EP modern classics has been amplified on the new album: the solos soar higher, the riffs penetrate deeper, the rhythm section pounds harder and with more precision, and the vocals are more unhinged. And it didn’t hurt that Arthur Rizk, by general consensus the best young producer in the game today, oversaw the recording. From their first practice in D.C. some four years ago, Red Death have been heirs to the proudest of traditions in the heavy-music underground, and with Formidable Darkness they’ve fulfilled their immense promise — just in time for the world’s ignominious end. As it was written, so it shall be.
  10. The Walking Dead

    That's what it seemed like - the Vaseline smeared camera lens fever dreams were coming from half delusional crystal chandelier mini-rainbow covered face rick. We'll see if they keep it up all season like a breaking bad stuffed animal in the pool. It was confusing because it was confusing and silly. Less chatter more splatter. Where are all the magic walker headshot bullets when you need them? Carl is, and will always be, the worst.
  11. The Walking Dead

    It was OK. While i always enjoy A-team style montages, I am not sure how much ballistic protection corrugated aluminum provides. How could they miss Negan and his whole crew? However, it's going to be really hard to replace all the glass. Gonna get really drafty on swap meet day.
  12. Awesome finds...

    I see flickr can embed photos. I though there used to be an issue.... I can probably re-embed the older photos which were in photobucket. Banded Sunfish - Enneacanthus obesus Mud Sunfish - Acantharcus pomotis Pirate Perch - Aphredoderus sayanus Swamp Darter - Etheostoma fusiforme Gould's Shipworm - Bankia gouldii Lesser Blue Crab - Callinectes similis

    Full disclosure: i am cribbing most of this from last year, but it's still valid and truthy. My name is Rob and I am older than i would like. I really dig a lot of older 80's Hardcore, Punk, Post Punk, Non-cheesy metal, early ska/rocksteady/regaee. Some random favorites: Mission of Burma, Gang of Four, Bad Brains, Life's Blood, Lifetime, GVSB, Greyhouse, Joy Division, Killing Joke, Milemarker, Baroness, Roky Erickson, Hot Water Music, Small Brown Bike, Murder By Death, Motorhead, Ringworm, Pallbearer, Metallica, Dag Nasty, Modern Lovers, Michael Kiwanuka, Culture, Thin Lizzy, Yuppicide, Cro-Mags, Iron Maiden, Celtic Frost, among others. Like most sane people i like Star Wars, plus Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galacitca, The Expanse Series, Evil Dead, Lost, Margret Atwood, Margritte, Hiroshige, iced tea, carbs, any day i can wear shorts... I like nature. I like being outside. I like going outside and finding snakes, salamanders, fish, beetles, moths and other assorted flora and fauna, but generally not people.
  14. Game Of Thrones: Season Seven

    RIP Roy Dotrice. He read all the GOT audiobooks. It will not be the same without him. He was unwell when book 4 was released and they had someone else record the audio. It was unlistenable. Upon his recovery, he re-recorded it, substantially improving the book. In the show Roy was originally supposed to play Pycelle, but due to his poor health the role was recast. He did end up playing the head Pyromancer around the battle for Kings Landing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Dotrice

    This should certainly continue, especially after dead format went down. I know i haven't put up a tradelist anywhere else (yet). We should pin this year's thread to the top as well. I got my SS this morning. good times.
