Messages - SunDummy

Ok, peeps, here it is, the rarest of the rare:  A massive SunDummy release, spanning 96 minidisks!  That's 128 hours of music!!!  Includes just about everything SunDummy recorded in the last years of its existence, including a recording/playback deck to add to your home system.  That's right, a dusty and finicky Sony minidisk deck is included!

I have no idea what all is on the disks, but if memory serves, there are final mixes of the stuff SunDummy released, as well as alternate mixes, shitloads of unreleased stuff, wild experiments, horrible noise, raw samples, and all manner of audio mistakes and sonic pollution.  Sure to make your neighbors concerned for your well-being.

If you order in the next 60 minutes ('cause you know we can't do this all day...), we'll include a handsome cardboard shipping box - complete with packing tape and address label, with your address on it - for you to display it in!

If you want it, act fast, this whole mess is going in a dumpster soon.   ;)

Swervedriver - Mezcal Head (reissue) (anyone for crunchy vintage shoegaze?)

Forrest

One of my favorite 'rock' albums ever.  Just perfect in every way.  You can get free live versions of every track at their website; the live version of Duress is absolutely stunning.

Swervedriver, Ride, Sianspheric, and Colfax Abbey were in constant rotation on long road trips back in the day.  Great stuff!

You're in Sweden?  Shipping could get spendy.  I think I'll just hang onto it for now.

Define "reasonable".   ;D

I've got Trances/Drones, the 1994 2cd version on Extreme, XLTD001.  Case good, cd's and booklet excellent.  Even has a pic of Robert with a full head of hair.   ;)

Offer?

Everything and Nothing / Re: Silly Question on disagreeing vs. attacking

Why, that's the stupidest thing I've ever...  er... ;D

Good question, one that probably has no answer.  Two rational human beings can have diametrically opposed viewpoints, and both be right from their own perspectives.  That seems self-evident to me.  But some people don't get this, or don't want to get it.  I find myself just avoiding these types of people.  Unfortunately, on the interwebz, you can't avoid them easily. 

Some forums I frequent have an "ignore poster" feature - it sure is handy.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Holiday Movies - your favorites and why
« on: November 29, 2010, 08:38:50 PM »
It has nothing to do with Christmas, but ten years ago, my brother brought Fantastic Planet to our family Xmas party; it's now become a tradition.  Since I'm not spending the holiday with the family, I'll just Netflix it instead.  (oh, and on Thanksgiving a few years ago, we watched "Alive".  Lots of jokes during dinner that year...)



Other than that, I don't watch many holiday movies - seen 'em all too many times.

Right on, Bill!  Happy Thanksgiving to you (and the rest of you folks) as well. 

I'm planning on a relaxing day of skiing with the wife, then an evening in front of the fire with some wine, some salmon, and some tunes.  Being 1200 miles from our families is a mixed blessing, but overall, I'm thankful that I get to spend a day with my wife with no other distractions.

Peace, all!

I clicked, and didn't see you naked.

You have to believe...

 :o

I hang out at several boards (this is the only music-related one), and participation at all of them seems to ebb and flow over time.  The only difference I see between the more active ones and this one is that it's relatively polite here.  I like that.

There's only so much one can say about our favorite style of music before it gets redundant.  Other than specific new releases, just about any topic or observation can be found to already exist if one uses the search function.  Truly original topics get a flurry of activity, then fade out, which suggests to me that the actual audience of unique visitors is small.  I wonder if the total number of hits you're seeing, Mike, doesn't include a large percentage of bots?  Any way to know?

Oh, and nudity, more nudity.  Can't go wrong with more nudity. 



 ;D ::)

92
Nudity.  Excessive, gratuitous, unnecessary nudity.

 ;D

Ran into Styx in the Spokane airport.   :o

Those are some strange looking guys - like they've been embalmed or something.   :-\

94
Another category - most you ever got when selling an album.  I sold Muslimgauze's "Islamaphobia" 2xCD for $350.00 on eBay; it was re-released by Soleilmoon a couple months later, for $20.   ;D

95
Least?  Hard to say...  I have a ton of crap I got for free.   ;D

Most?  Again, hard to say...  but I know I spent $100 on the "Beyond Logic, Beyond Belief" LP by Nocturnal Emissions when it came out in the early 90's.  I had no money then, so I'm not sure what the hell I was thinking...   ::)

96
Mojo Nixon in First Avenue in the early 90's.  He was at the urinal next to me, and would NOT stop talking while we peed.  If he wasn't so funny, it would have been creepy...

97
I found MySpace late, after it was already a complete shitshow, so I never bothered to join. 

Some kid started a fan page for SunDummy on Facebook; I wasn't going to bother, but since he already created one, I asked to be made an admin.  A few people have contacted me because of it, but on the whole, I think it's a waste of time unless you're actively promoting stuff.  For example, Grapes of Wrath have been promoting reunion shows via their Facebook page; if I wasn't a fan, I'd never know about these shows; so it does have some value, if used correctly.

Been on a Ride kick lately - "Carnival of Light" and "Tarantula", two classics.  And my ambient-loving side has been really digging Robert Rich's "Seven Veils", Mo Boma's "Myths of the Near Future" volumes 1 through 3, and Nurse with Wound's "Soliloquy for Lilith".

 ;D ;D

Facebook's advantages are that you can't edit the background or the layout very much, and you can't use GIF images.  It keeps things clean and orderly.  

I agree with Mike; MySpace is physically painful to look at.
