    Houses should NOT be $200,000 I paid like $20,000 for my house in 1974, when it was new and available for several years. This is dumb. 👴🏻

    Very future heads up, apparently we are getting a repress of the "Translating the Name" EP on vinyl. "Waxywonderss" on Instagram tagged a bunch of the band members asking "Please tell me why this insane EP is not pressed on an awesome colored vinyl yet?" and Beau responded in his DMs (which he screenshotted) "because we are finishing up the variant designs". EDIT: Added screenshot of the screenshoot lol.

    I like your optimism but I don’t skip tracks. Either an album fuckin rips and I’m playing the whole joint front to back or I probably don’t listen to it at all.

    He lost all credibility with me when he bitched about the "color contamination" and the record not being pure yellow. Are you for fuckin' real?!?! I am sure that his local store loved dealing with his insufferable ass when he went to swap it out...someone with better snark and cynicism please play out the exchange on that day.

    Is Dead Format coming back?

    I use a pencil and notepad. Speaking of dead format.

    The pinned VC General Guidelines thread states "Your favorite band/artist announced a new album? Great! Don't start a "PO SOON" thread unless there's any solid & legit info on a vinyl release. Get hyped about the release on the EE board. Don't clutter the main board yet." It's not being lazy, there is just zero evidence beyond some screenshots, the pre-order likely won't show up for 3+ months, and then someone will start a duplicate thread because the original will be buried by then. Trust me, I've done it before.

    Hey. Cut it with the ableism. You got a temporary ban for making jokes about domestic violence, said that "dumb sluts" had it coming, and other trolling comments. This is just as bad. We didn't forget. @Shitty Rambo @jhulud

    The fact that anyone feels like media that's created by melting plastic between two plates and then scraped by a diamond to make sound should be as flawless as a CD is super funny to me. Quality hasn't gone down, price and therefor expectation are higher and thats it. You should really just blame people pressing movie and video game soundtracks in every gimmicky way possible for attracting nerd collector culture to the hobby.

    Hi y'all, thanks for posting this. Appreciate the support. For the vinyl heads - we have had really good luck with the random colors this time around. I've done a ton of random pressings and sometimes I've gotten the "transition/mixed brown blob thing" as someone else mentioned. Most of the "transition colors" that I've seen for this pressing have been varying levels of translucent yellow. They look really nice, especially alongside the shiny gold matchbooks that come with every record. The main records (/400) are a nice opaque turquoise and they sound really good. One of the better quality / thicker pressings I've ever had for my own music (other than the time when the plant accidentally pressed all of the first pressing of the first Signals LP on 180 gram. Really lucked out on that one!). The jackets have a nice rough matte finish on 'em, too. And thank you to anybody reading this, whether you know my work with Signals or any other projects or not. A lot of these songs were inspired by time spent listening to stuff that we listen to on the road. Tom Petty, Neil Young, Jets to Brazil, Weakerthans, Laura Stevenson (who sings with me on a song here), Magnolia Electric Co. (whose lap steel player Mike Brenner plays on about half this record). Super proud of it, hope y'all like it. - Max

    Saosin - Translating The Name

    Story time. Back in the early 2000s I was a manager of several indie movie theaters in the Philly suburb area. I randomly came across Translating The Name in 2004 and was floored. Played it on repeat all the time and got a fellow co-worker hooked on it too. In 2005 I saw that Saosin was playing at the Trocadero, a fairly small music venue in Philly. At this point I knew the band had a new singer, so I didn't expect the same vocal style, but I was still stoked to see the band live. I went with the same co-worker mentioned above. The set was pretty decent, but lacked the same vocal presence that the former singer Anthony could bring. After Saosin played my co-worker and I went to the upper part of the venue to grab a beer. He lit up a cigarette and we stood there chatting. A minute later some kid walks up to us and asks for a light from my friend. He hands over the lighter, the two look at each other, and the interaction went as such... Kid: "Brian?" Co-worker: "Oh hey... Anthony!" Co-worker (to me): "Do you remember Mike Green who used to work at the theater in Doylestown? This is his little brother Anthony." Me: "Oh, yeah. Hey man, nice to meet you" (shakes hands) At this point the two of them continued chatting and I stood there for a solid 2 minutes repeating in my head... "Anthony. Anthony. Anthony Green. Anthony Green? ANTHONY FUCKING GREEN!" Me: "HOLY SHIT! YOU'RE ANTHONY GREEN!" Brian: "Uhhh, so what?" Me to Brian: "Dude, this is Anthony Green, formerly of SAOSIN and now Circa Survive. We've played Translating The Name non-stop. That's his fucking voice!" Brian: "Oh shit." The three of us chatted for a good hour about his brother, his time in Saosin, and new band Circa Survive. Turns out Anthony grew up in the same town as us and we knew his older brother without even realizing it. Over the years we would grab drinks with Anthony here and there in town and he often hooked us up with the Circa Survive show guest list or photo passes. I miss those days.

    I mean, you clearly found the threads and looked in them. So technically if that stuff was posted in any of those threads, you would’ve seen it anyways.

    I would echo the sentiment someone said earlier of maybe trying to work in another local record store to pick the owner's brain and get a good idea of how the business is handled, day to day stuff, etc. It may turn out you don't even like it. Many people get the idea in their head that they want to own a small business and sell something that they love. A great idea on the face of it but it's so much more than that. I'm not actively trying to discourage you (or anyone who dreams of these things) but while being a small business owner can be fun and rewarding it is even more grueling and stressful. You will find yourself working harder and longer hours than anything you probably have previously done for less or, in many cases, no money. Think long and hard about it before throwing your savings and time into a small business. Again, I'm really not trying to discourage you but many businesses fail because people don't know what they are getting into. If you are passionate, have drive, are a hard worker and have money that you can afford to lose without destroying your life then give it a go. Just be sure to have a plan and go in as best prepared as possible. Good luck!
