    Good luck getting people to pay for your vacation. Maybe you can hit up an eyebrow waxing place along the way.

    Upcoming Release Calendar

    So I've been having a lot of issues with my mental health and I spent the entire day today listening to records and trying to compile a list of upcoming releases. I think that I did a pretty good job, even if the formatting and appearance aren't the best. Anyway, you can view all of these upcoming releases here: www.melodicallydeaf.com If you think this is something that's kinda cool, please feel free to help out; let me know what I've missed or what's coming up. You can do so by replying here, but if I don't see it, feel free to PM me. Thanks for caring!

    jason tate is the whiniest bitch ever. this isn't a new opinion nor is it an original thought in the slightest... but the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mentality is the sorriest excuse of an idea ever. also, how is coming to the defense of large labels at all (absolute)punk? yes vinyl prices are going up from "cash-in-labels" like SRC, Because Sound Matters and AFS (RIP). And from major labels like Warner and Interscope (lana del rey at urban outfitters?!) because it's the first thing they know they can sell in a while. Small indie labels are still finding ways to keep prices down though because those sales aren't guaranteed. They spend more to produce each unit and sell it for less. Like every other big corporation, big labels aren't worried about getting the music in the people's hands, they're worried about making as much money before the bubble bursts. If they could take a step back and realize they're causing the bubble to burst sooner, that'd be great.

    So I finally got the rest of these cleared so I figured I'd put this all in one thread. I'm pretty excited about all of these, they should be pretty cool. These will all be available in select Hot Topic stores and on www.hottopic.com. These street dates are all tenative. I'll update this thread as we get closer to each release and let you know if anything has changed. Don't ask about Dogs Eating Dogs, I have no idea if or when that will ever get pressed. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket LP - Not too long ago Hot Topic had an exclusive pressing of TOYPAJ LP on clear vinyl with red, green and yellow splatter limited to 2000 copies. This sold out quite a while ago online but there's still some copies floating around Hot Topic stores. Self-Titled 2xLP - (there's already a thread for this one on here) clear vinyl with pink and green splatter with the smiley face logo etched on the D-side limited to 2000 copies. This one has been bumped back a couple weeks and should now be available around early December.Right now it's looking like a 12/24 street date. These are updated as of 5/14/14 with new TENTATIVE release dates so these might change again. If anything else gets bumped I'll update the thread The Mark, Tom and Travis How 2xLP - clear vinyl with pink, green and blue splatter limited to 2700 copies available 3/11/14 Buddha LP - clear vinyl w/ baby blue and green splatter limited to 2000 available 5/27/14 Enema of the State LP - clear vinyl with red and blue splatter limited to 2700 copies available 5/13/14 Buddha LP - clear vinyl w/ baby blue and green splatter limited to 2000 available 5/27/14 Dude Ranch LP - clear vinyl with orange and brown splatter limited to 2700 copies available 6/3/14 Greatest Hits 2xLP - clear vinyl with black and silver splatter limited to 3000 copies available 6/10/14 (available online the following week) Cheshire Cat LP - clear vinyl with blue and yellow splatter limited to 2700 copies available 7/1/14 (will likely get bumped back a bit) Neighborhoods 2xLP - clear vinyl with black and white splatter limited to 2700 copies available October/November We are doing the double gatefold that the original release had so this one will be $29.50 Represses Working on a S/T 2xLP splatter repress that is tentatively scheduled to be available around 7/8 Working on a TOYPAJ LP splatter repress, I'll post more info on that as I get it.

    Thanks for your input, however your generalizations on motive are incorrect. As a band we decided to make limited covers ALONG w/ different vinyl colors of a release. It was really that simple of a concept. Typically we release anywhere from 3-5 different colors of a record just to do it (always have), with the same cover usually. This was just an alternative way to approach that idea. Ironically, doing so was very expensive (commissioning art from folks and doing small runs of 500 of each double LP with this limited packaging). It actually cost us MUCH more to do this than a traditional record to manufacture. All of us (including myself) collect records and cherish variants for the same reason bands make music, for the love of it. If maximum profit was the goal, then we are in the wrong game entirely. Thanks again. -J.

    As I am sure you all know, the recent re-issue of Deja Entendu has made some of us very happy to finally own and completed our Brand New record collections. While the RSD version was cool, it lacked the special packaging that we expected.. We wanted to see a return of the black slipcase, in which the original CD release came in. Why this wasn't done for the standard or RSD version (or even a deluxe version), is beyond me. Even 12 years later, I remember the awesome packaging that this CD had. Over the past month or so, I took matters into my own hands, Not as a cash grab (Trust me, I won't be paying my rent with this lol), but to try something new and give back to the fans and members of this board. After designing, sourcing and sampling, I have come up with a slipcase/sleeve that I am extremely happy with. It slips snug right over the recent re-issue of Deja Entendu, making it look almost exactly like the original CD release. They will be going live at www.dejasleeve.com on Monday at 9AM (PST). This will be a pre-order and these will ship on or before August 10th. They will be $5.99 for one and $9.99 for two (one for you and your lover, best friend, dad, etc.) plus shipping. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! I'm super stoked about this, and I hope the people on these forums are too!

    I was going to put this in the poetry thread, but I thought that it wouldn’t hurt to have a separate thread. I teach 3rd grade in a high poverty urban area. In my classroom I teach the kids the craft of poetry, even though it is not a part of our curriculum. I feel it’s an important avenue for them to express their views and to realize how powerful they can be with their words. This allows even the lowest achieving students to realize success because the focus is on expression rather than mechanics or correct grammar. One of the experiments I started doing was to play them music by Explosions In The Sky while they were writing. I’d give them the title and let them use the music to influence their writing. Through the years I have collected some good ones and decided to make an anthology of these titles to give to the band. This is the email I got from them: Hey there, This is Chris, the drummer from Explosions in the Sky. Sorry it's taken so long to send you a message, but we just got back from tour recently and there are always a million things to catch up on once we're home. Anyway, I just wanted to thank for giving us the copy of The Season of the Waterfall. We all read the poems and were deeply moved. Not even sure what to say other than that i'm glad that there are people like you helping out and doing things like this. Reading them was not easy. They were beautiful but also incredibly heartbreaking. If there is some way for us to help out, please let me know. Even if its something dumb like sending you a bunch of CDs or something to give to your class. I'm not really sure 3rd and 4th graders would have any interest in meandering, long winded instrumental rock music, but I can't really think of anything else. A lot of people have given us stuff over the years but nothing has compared to this collection of poems. Not even close. Thank you. Sincerely, Chris explosions in the sky Here are some of the poems. Please keep in mind that I teach them the craft, give them the tools, but this is 100% their writing. I wish I could take credit for what they write, even sometimes steal some of the lines for my own lyrics. I’ve had mothers and fathers in tears as they read their child’s poems. It amazes me every time I read a new one. These are all using titles from EITS songs. The Birth and Death of the Day Death is in the sky and Light is in the ground. When people say be gone death death stays. It never went and now it disappeared like fallen warriors. Light has come back to the sky. -Jorge Our Last Days As Children We used to go to the park together then it was time to grow up. You are a fashion designer and I am a doctor. We get off work at 3:00 and see each other at the buffet and eat and talk about when we were little and remember times like when we ate chocolate mint ice cream on Saturdays, when we played with each other, when we were friends forever when we played Bratz and you used to be Sasha and I would be Cloe, when we went to each other’s houses and watched Disney movies, When we used to talk about ourselves and what colors we liked. You liked red and I liked pink. When we played dodgeball and we would be on the same team and we would run or jump so we wouldn’t get out, but we would catch the ball and get other people out, when we painted each other’s nails, when we colored each other’s drawings. when we played soccer and we would win, during recess we would play four square and you would be in the A square and I would be in B. After we talk we start to cry. I miss those things. -Lilibeth The Only Moment We Were Alone I feel dead dead like nothing People just pass by like Nothing Ghosts being nothing Laying down being a jerk Biting ghosts one at a time Water from God biting water forever. -Juan

    Beginner’s Guide to Hi–Fi Created to hopefully aid anyone venturing into this stressful, beautiful hobby. I will update this with more information whenever I have time to waste. Anyone is welcome to chime in. Basic Hi-Fi Chain: SOURCE -> AMPLIFICATION -> SPEAKERS (click to jump to section) The source component reads the recorded information and translates it into the signal that will be later perceived as sound. Amplification takes that signal and amplifies it (no, really?) in order to make it strong enough to move the drivers of the speaker. A speaker is a collective of drivers that are moved by the signal, producing air pressure in front of them which to us, mortal beings, means hearing sound. When putting together a hi-fi setup, always keep in mind: The end result will only be as good as the weakest link. Buying an expensive turntable and a good phono preamp is useless if you're using cheap computer speakers. By no means should you decide to just get a shitty turntable then. Instead, think carefully how to ration your budget across all important components. Jump to setting up & use: SOURCE, AMPLIFICATION, SPEAKERS LIST OF RECCOMENDED EQUIPMENT FOR DIFFERENT BUDGETS

    Alright, here we go. I've got my coffee, sat down at my desk... let's talk about Babby's little temper tantrum. First and foremost, your post is embarrassing as fuck. Like a lot of your posts lately. You might be the biggest fucking hypocrite on these forums and it cracks me up. I started to go through your posts just to make sure I wasn't about to go off with the wrong idea, but no, I couldn't even get past the first page of your posts without seeing you be a massive shitlord. You're mad... about people being mad... about flipping? You've stalked Kanye Kess across the fucking galaxy to shame spiral him for being a flipping wanker. And now you're going to post a VC-wide callout thread about giving people shit for complaining about flipping? That's not to say I disagree. If it's blatant and shitty, call people out. If someone is selling something for a profit, shut the fuck up and don't buy it - on that point I agree with you. "When this place was in it's prime" - Dear God where to start with this elitist bullshit. Your post reads like the saddest little hipster temper tantrum from someone who liked VC before it was cool! Do people complain about a lot of petty bullshit? Yes. And they get called out for it. Do some people get a little SJW tumblr around here and PC police? Yes. Sometimes it's warranted, sometimes it results in some pretty entertaining/enlightening conversations. I guess it's easy to miss that when you think you're so fucking edgy that everyone will laugh and pat you on the back when you go in a thread about how the use of "faggot" as a derogatory term is fucked up and say "lol you are all a bunch of faggots". You are so fucking edgy, man. Congratulations. As far as "the glory proboards days" You're so salty about the fucking boobies and butts threads getting locked and deleted. Grow the fuck up. What is wrong with you that you need to come to a forum ABOUT VINYL RECORDS for your spank bank material. Fuck off with that shit. The internet is literally filled to the overflowing brim with porn, I implore you to go find it elsewhere. "Lighten the fuck up, and listen to your records" says a guy whose last status update in July was "thinking about just selling everything. havent spun a reciord in months." So why are you here? You want everyone else to lighten up... but I don't see anyone else writing an "Open letter" crying and whining about the quality of their precious boards. Now let's touch on your "pop punk" comment. Do people listen to music you think is shitty? Yes. Do people listen to music I think is shitty? Yes. Who fucking cares. Poke fun, and be done with it. What your comment really speaks to is your fucking elitist ageism nonsense. You're a fucking month off of 31, dude. You're posting on the forums of a website that sells My Chemical Romance and Jimmy Eat World represses and you're pissed that there are teenagers here? Grow the fuck up. Half of your latest posts are you going around insulting Doman and Rezqua, on their fucking pictures and posts. Are you kidding me man? You're so fucking insecure with yourself that you need to go around picking internet fights with people who are LITERALLY half of your age? Am I the biggest fan of some of the stuff those guys posts? NO. But they are a hell of a lot more tolerable than some nearly-31 year old asshole having a mid-life tempter tantrum on VINYL RECORDS forums who doesn't even listen to his own vinyl. Go join somethingawful or 4chan if you want to post pictures of tits and asses and talk about your sexual adventures every day. I think it's safe to say that these forums aren't the place for it, and everyone is getting pretty tired of your elitist tr00 punX nonsense. So, chill out, let other people live their lives, and listen to your records.

    In the Ultimate Deja story arc, Jesse Lacey died and was replaced by the band's guitar tech Steve Camacho. He was the one who woke Adam Lazzara from the Infinity Springs and started the Quadruple Crown label which started the Deja Entendu Repress Civil War. Camacho's son, Hurley, ends up becoming the leader of PPL MVR and records a Daisy cover album to bring Jesse Lacey back from the dead as Vision Lacey (The Emoter).

    ETR Superfans

    Are you joking? Are you Ross? Have you actually read this thread? Ross sells his own releases on eBay. Flips them to people on this board. Presses extra copies of records that aren't listed or approved. Has typos/mistakes on almost all his releases. Doesn't care about the bands he releases from. He gets his best friend to come on the board and lie to everyone. Then that same friend (who is also his business partner and one of the main contributors to the Doug 7") tells someone "I will be sure to give you a rag to wipe off my cum after you are under my desk choking on my dick." That's not elitism. It's common sense that I won't give my money to someone like that. Especially for a compilation album of one-to-two minute songs that most people will never listen to.

    ETR Superfans

    Everyone has the right to do what they want with their money. Labels can do whatever they want with their records, including selling them on eBay. What really pisses me off, is when labels come on VC and lie. If you are going to flip your own records on ebay, that's your own choice. If you are going to sell your own releases on eBay and make bullshit descriptions like "i bought this from the label and it sounds great and I have a super low number and i hate to see this go!" then people might have a problem with that. When you have another user come on and make a claim that the eBay listings are his and some bullshit sob story about how they lost their job and need the money, I have an even larger problem with that. Here's some more context: eBay user krockradio24 sells ETR releases. Here are a few examples of links and descriptions: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rob-Zombie-hellbilly-deluxe-180g-SEALED-3-color-swirl-vinyl-lp-reissue-15-500-/271693232956?pt=Music_on_Vinyl&hash=item3f422dbb3c&nma=true&si=8ybJultQaqLMYdm2IEDQvwrraxY%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 This auction is for a SEALED copy of the 2014 rob zombie hellbilly deluxe re-issue on 180 gram 3 color swirl vinyl. This reissue sold out in 2 days and will not be repressed. I bought two copies and must say that this album looks and sounds amazing. I took a photo of my opener copy to show how cool the record looks. I was also lucky enough to get a low #, mine came with #14 and #15 stickers which are the lowest ive seen posted so far. Anyway, I need some money for the holidays so decided to get rid of my extra copy. Please email me with any additional questions or concerns http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dream-Theater-Images-Words-Red-Yellow-Swirl-Vinyl-Lp-record-BLANK-NO-PROMO-/271651570615?pt=Music_on_Vinyl&hash=item3f3fb203b7 This listing is for an UNPLAYED copy of Dream Theater- Images and words on fireball swirl colored vinyl. The record was only opened to confirm the color of the lp's. This pressing was released by Brookvale Records & Enjoy The Ride Records in 2013 and was an officially licensed re-issue, promoted by the band. This copy was given to me by a friend who worked on the project so this is a very RARE un numbered copy promo copy of this album. I was told that only 20 of these were not numbered and none of those were really ever made available for sale to the public. Please email me with any additional questions or concerns Completed listings from krockradio24: http://www.ebay.com/sch/krockradio24/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc After these were posted, some newer users asked if it was really Ross's ebay account, a relatively unknown user with 44 posts made the following post: Many people bought what this guy was selling and believed that this explained things. There is quite a bit of proof that Ross uses krockradio24 as a username in a number of places. The most alarming proof is from this old thread: Here is an older VC thread that still exists: http://boards.vinylc...f-awesome-jams/ When you check the google cached version it still has a recently deleted post from Ross where he says what his eBay username is: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:1dZiwPLj-MUJ:boards.vinylcollective.com/topic/86372-selling-records-from-japan-via-ebay-130-auctions-at-the-moment-tons-of-awesome-jams/+&cd=13&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us Here is a screenshot:

    Song missing...?

    the first version of horse with no name was omitted because while the band was on tour prior to the album release, the drummer's grandmother accidentally named the horse they wrote the song about. fearing it would be a false interpretation of the song's true meaning, it was pulled last second. it seems like you may have one of these copies, if so, it's worth a considerable amount of money and you should probably get it professionally appraised.

    I feel like it'd be a failed business idea of Kramer's (such as the homeless rickshaw). JERY: So you charge people $24 to borrow $1 worth of records for a month? KRAME: Yeeeeeeep JERY: Then they send back the ones they don't want? KRAME: You got that right. You know my friend Bob Sacamano? He just moved his mother to a home. Bunch of records, and no space for them. BIGGEST Englebert Humperdink fan there is. Dozens of copies of every album and I didn't have to spend a cent. JERY: So your customers will send back all of them, and you'll have a constant supply of the same crummy records. KRAME: Giddy up! JERY: It's preposterous. It'll never work. And what are these vibes? Is that a hashtag? Do you even know what a hashtag is? KRAME: It's for the kids Jerry. Put a pretty sticker on anything and hashtag a few Instagrams and kids go crazy for it. ELAIN: Are you sure this is legal? KRAME: ....well I guess I just assumed.

    I figured a good place to make a first post would be in this topic. About half of these have been bought online, and the other half at local shops. I try to buy the common stuff at shops, which is why there are still some holes. Many different pressings from different countries, as well as promo pressings. I have yet to get my hands on a test press. Anyways, here's the "Weird Al" Yankovic portion of my record collection.
