emokid9963 reacted to Ballisticgoat in Out Now: Invalids - Strengths 2xLP
Important vinyl info! All summarized therebelow (just awful), but Soft Speak Records is printing Strengths to a DOUBLE LP (bc I write long songs bc dumb) vinyl wax pizza sound-disc thing. As a non-profit organization, Mike, the proprietor, asked me where I might like to donate the profits and I offered up our local animal shelter here in Princeton called SAVE (http://www.save-animals.org/).
Official vinyl release: 24 March 2015

Kind of surprised there wasn't a thread for this already, I know I've seen a few other fans of Invalids around here. Hopefully Eunoia gets a pressing soon as well.

I would've guessed you'd like unboxing videos since you never get to see your Mondo stuff since it goes straight to ebay.

emokid9963 reacted to 6heart6breaker6 in American Football Blue Deluxe 2xLP Reissue Lottery
My last lottery went well, so I hope this one's a disaster. These are two extra copies of the American Football Deluxe (/300 blue) yadda yadda. Here's the thread to the original information.
The price of the album will be what I paid plus $5 for shipping, handling, and love costs. If there is an international winner, then we will discuss extra shipping costs. (They were $20 a piece at the show)
The lotto begins now and ends on...we'll go with 12:00am CST Friday, January 16th (Which is thursday night for some).
I will be using the mauve cloud "random chooser" generator to enter the names and choose a winner.
In order to be entered into this lottery, you must submit a response to each of the following questions:
(1) What was your favorite teenage snack and why?
(2) What was your most tear-jerking high school memory?
Pathetic questions, but for fuck's sake I'm trying to be AF relevant.
These responses are imperative to be entered into the lottery but DOES NOT affect the chance of winning.
PM with questions/comments/concerns.

OK. This is where I am putting my foot down in the name of VC.
I am speaking personally now because I have been dragged into this whole mess outside of VC. For some reason and because I know a few of the involved, it has permeated into my personal space media of not only IG but also FB and even email.
I am not having any of this.
Making threats and sending insulting messages to anyone involved in this, will not be tolerated. You want to be a part of VC? Then at least have the common sense and decency to act like a mature person who can handle conflict and conflict-resolution.
I've had situations like this before where someone(s) blurred the line between what happens on VC and on online community and allowed it spill into their personal lives and essentially cause chaos and drag everyone and anyone involved and in the vicinity into it. No way this will happen again, at least not under my watch and especially when I've been unwillingly dragged into it.
An attempt was made to maintain some peace and a semblance of decorum in all of this, but it seems that a few have taken it upon themselves to say "fuck that!" and go on their own wild attack spree. To the point where messages and accusations have been made so grossly insulting, that makes me think of even allowing this all to go on at this point.
Whatever personal and business "issues" and "legal problems" y'all have with and between yourselves...be it Ross, Patrick, Molder, etc....this NOT the forum for it. This whole public humiliation and airing out dirty laundry is so lame and I will not have it here on VC. This it now Judge Judy. Take that somewhere else please.
This thread is being temporarily locked while a discussion is held with affected parties and some details are cleared. It will reopen later. Maybe.
For the time being. Dudes. It's a Friday night. Go do something more constructive and fun with yourselves.

Why did all of you support this label until right now if this is all it takes for you turn your back on it? Are you really surprised a label who pretty much only reissues major label crap is doing under the table deals to make more money? They put out KoRn, Dream Theater, and Cartel records, and when they're not licensing from majors, they're paying Drive-Thru, one of the most fucked up labels of all time ran by literal lunatics, their money. Clearly there is nothing 'punk' or 'DIY' about it. It's simply a game of going through lists of records and finding stuff that either hasn't been pressed before, or is out of print, that you think you can sell ~500 copies of, and then talking to people. There is literally no culture or aesthetic. ETR doesn't stand for anything, and that's fine.
Ross clearly has every right to start and run a company of that nature, but to me, it has nothing to do with what I do or what other indie record labels do. None of this surprises me because of the nature of ETR's business. I honestly don't think most of the stuff you guys are calling him out on isn't ~that~ bad in the grand scheme of things (besides lying about it) but I also understand the witch hunt nature of this message board. If Deathwish or Topshelf or someone did the same thing, I would feel the same way most of you guys do, but that is because it would be completely out of character with how those companies operate.
Just sayin' y'all.

I picked this up for $25 at Best Buy and I wouldn't have paid more. I enjoy it very much it is an AC clone in format.
I agree with the poster who said that getting swarmed when trying to kill a WarChief is annoying but once you upgrade your weapons, it's pretty easy.
