    I dont give a shit about the members of this band, or any band. 

    Doesn't that make you the one doing all the "virtue signaling" here?  You don't care... yet here you are, compelled to lecture people you disagree with.

    Find better uses for your time, friend.  Also, prancing around the internet complaining about "virtue signaling" is a major dogwhistle.  Just so you know.

    Really need to see the actual post before anyone can accept hearsay. Not defending the band by any means, but this is exactly how stories get stretched out of context.

    I don't have screenshots, but it was supposedly written by the other woman in the story, I believe her name was Stacy and she was dating Ray at the time.  In it, she picked apart the victim's behavior in very much the same way you just did (congrats on thinking the exact same way as every other rape apologist in this toxic scene).

    Masked Intruder shared the post without comment, only to delete it and post this bullshit after receiving blowback.  The post and comments under it should hopefully clear your personal burden of proof that TBR's post existed.

    Bottom line, Ray is not a safe person for women to be around, and the reason this shit never changes is these guys get their scene-bros to back them up, as you've done, congrats on fulfilling your duty.  The band was quietly dropped from this year's Fest lineup.  Look at their fb for about a week after 7/21, the date the podcast came out.  All the comments were turned off on their posts, but not on the post about the podcast so they could do damage control.  The band managed to semi-successfully sweep this under the rug.

    And Fat still chose to put out their new album.

    Unless you got in on the first 30 seconds it was online, there is nothing to regret...

     

    I was doing field work in South America and attempting to F5 like crazy on slow af dial-up speed internet and missed out. I'm still salty about this. It's a flipper's wet dream

    Can confirm.  I'm a Thrice superfan, never cared for MO, happened to luck out and snag one of these.  The Thrice cover is fine, but the MO side just reaffirmed my distaste for that band.

    Ended up selling it for $250 on Discogs.  I listed it at that price as a joke.

  4. Just got my boxset yesterday!  This thing is massive!  Like, seriously, it won't fit in an Expedit/Kallax, it's over over 14" wide and almost 15" tall.  I assume it's oversized because of the boxset cover, which is the keyboard photo set behind a plastic cover with "The Aggrolites Essentials" printed on it.  The plastic cover even came with a protector sheet, like electronics often have.  The box includes foam inserts to secure the vinyl in place within the oversized box.

    Haven't had a chance to spin any of these yet, so I can't comment on sound quality.  But overall, I'm stoked with how this turned out and I'm glad I jumped on preordering this.

    The shipping was hilarious though.  It came packaged in a perfectly sized box for the boxset...which was then thrown into a massive cardboard box with a tiny bit of packing paper thrown in.  It's totally unscathed though!  😎

    I was half joking with my original comment, but if people argue I argue back. lol 🤷‍♂️

    Then I guess we're all making fun of the half of you that wasn't joking.

    If you're complaining about this, then you must be new to the LTJ vinyl game.  We're all still clamoring for our Anthem and B is for B-Side represses; the former has been out of print for well over a decade and the latter was never pressed.  Add to this the fact that they've frequently done elaborate vinyl releases in the past, so this is not new.

    Yet you're (half) upset that their new album is being kept readily available?  Damned if you do, damned if you don't, I guess.

    But don't they do a test one first? Something like a vinyl blob turning out totally wrong seems much easier to quickly spot and fix than a flawed stamper or poor mastering. From my limited understanding, the machines aren't usually unattended

    Aren't test pressings primarily for sound evaluation?  I have a hard time believing a band that does as many variants as TA does a test run for each variant.

    Also, the machine operators have probably never seen a mockup of what the finished product is intended to look like.  Checking the specificity of the variant is not part of their QA process.
