  1. You're right! Almost missed those. I just added both Nile to my order. thx lol ๐Ÿ˜†
  2. Necrophagist Epitaph LP Reissue (Quad Effect with Splatter) https://necrophagist.bandcamp.com/album/epitaph https://store.relapse.com/item/43738
  3. I have the Dr V which is just the same but not as fancy. But I personally spin it both ways 3-5 revolutions. It's about how many revolutions it takes to dry the solution off. May vary depending how humid your environment is. If you have a translucent record you can get a sense of how many times you need to turn it. Also I use an enzymatic cleaner which I scrub with a MOFI brush, I then leave on for about 1 min each side before the suction. Then I rinse with a spray bottle of distilled water then spin it the same revolutions as with washing. The only issue is that it can overheat if you wash a lot of records. Haven't let it get to that point tho. Mos def better than the spin clean any day. If I had the cash, I would've invested in the pro-ject vce. If only for the convenience... but what's a few more hundred dollars, amirite? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope that helps ๐Ÿ‘
  4. You guys are all wrong. Alcohol and ammonia messes with the chemical composition of vinyl. Wood glue is where it's at
  5. Waiting on a VSS shipment of gatefold sleeves. And I too will will have a cleaning sesh as well. ๐Ÿงผ
  6. So is this a legit reissue? Or a boot? Coz I'm tearing myself apart...
  7. Well, what do you know? Just received mine today. And yes, it wasn't the same tracking number lol. Beautiful copy tho!
  8. Classic Thrash master's Devastation Idolatry is being reissued by Centurymedia label on yellow vinyl. https://centurymedia.store/product/Y4LPCE640/devastation-idolatry-vinyl-lp?cp=102832_103117_104678 Limited to 500 Indie record stores also releasing red vinyl in the states and blue in Europe i believe.
  9. Personally, I use the RecordDr V. I had been using the spin clean, which is the equivalent to the big fudge manual cleaner, for years until i wanted to up my cleaning game. I still use the spin clean when I purchase used records or Thrift Store finds or just plain filthy, then I put it through the record Dr. I've also been looking into this one as well. Seems like a worthy entry into the ultrasonic realm. But back to the OP, mechanical cleaning is recommended if your just getting started in the cleaning game. Hope that helps
  10. Did they provide you the new tracking number orwas it just sent?
  11. Mine has been in pre-shipment since Dec 2. Doesn't look good..
  12. Excellent sell! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘Œ lol These just make so much sense imho. Personally I but the tape version. I just don't need to open the sleeve anymore. As for the gatefold sleeves, at first I didn't like them and just put the whole pack to the side and continued using the "double" dual pocket sleeve hack for my gatefolds. Then I realized that I was using 2 sleeves per gatefold. So I decided to try them again. But this time I decided to slip the record on the inside of the of the flap. (I bought the flap version of the gatefold sleeve) Explained: After the gatefold is inserted into the sleeve, I fold the flap in. Then once the flap is folded into the sleeve, I slide the record into the sleeve leaving the fold intact. That way I still have easy access to the record while still protecting the gatefold and the record.
  13. Holy shitballs! Just got my Autotheism pinwheel. One of my most regretted misses. This just got bumped up top of my cleaning list! These labels need to start using poly lined sleeves already! It's just pathetic...
  14. Any anti static carbon fiber brush will do before playing. But I use that MOFI as mentioned above as well. Also, invest in a good record cleaner. Even new records can benefit ๐Ÿ‘ As for sleeve protection, I use the vinyl storage solutions after I clean my records, new and used. Really neat invention by a guy up in Canada. They have dual sleeves which I just can't stop talking about, lol
  15. Yeah I switched everything over to Brave a couple of years ago and never looked back. Phones and laptops and desktops. Fuck ads lol. Used to use Firefox with all the extensions but I no longer need so many. Just the dark reader for sites like this one Might be coz of Brave on PC that I don't see any ads here in VC? Dunno, but outta sight, outta mind. Don't care It's prolly why I'm on here so much, lol
  16. I forget that this site has ads. I absolutely abhor websites with ads, lol. Not sure exactly but maybe it's the Brave browser that I use or in combination with a VPN. Also works awesome with YouTube. Absolutely no interruptions! ๐Ÿ‘ Anyone else see ads here? If so, what browser do you use and do you use a VPN? (Sorry off topic) Anyways, I do kinda like Whatnot. But I can see how it feels #VNYL'y with all the push I've seen. I actually follow Mike from the In Groove records and watch what he sells on it occasionally. Don't know much about the app but prolly won't install it. I watch from a browser.
  17. Hey guys, just got an update about the defective pressings: Hi everyone, You're getting this email as you signed up on the Google Form about the Dead Cross Vinyl error. We wanted to get an update out before the end of the year. We've been talking to our manufacturer weekly and they're currently in the process of making new lacquers. As you might know with vinyl production, these things take some time, so we're still awaiting a timeline on replacement vinyl. Unfortunately we will never know which of the finished product out there is good vs bad, so we'd rather make fresh new discs to send to everyone. If you didn't want to wait anymore, you can always return the record to your point of purchase for a full refund. We'll hopefully have some more updates at the top of the year, and really appreciate your patience here. Thanks again for all the support and hope you have a great holiday season. Ipecac Recordings
