Last night I sold about 150 cd's at Amoeba Music in SF. I got rid of a lot of rock/pop from the 80's, and also a lot of ambient. It's amazing how much ambient electronic stuff I have/had that was just gathering dust on my shelves, that is "ok" but not great or inspiring like the classics. Artists who I had an abundance of titles from I sold off most and kept the 2 or 3 very best. Trying to streamline my collection into only the very best. The only label I will not sell anything of is Fax.
Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, and Markus Reuter (whoaaaa!!) Playing together in San Francisco on January 23. Must check this out. This is a rare chance to see these masters in person. Years ago when I went to see Karn, Torn and Bozzio as Polytown it was an amazing experience. This looks to be the same.
Yes immersions OPINIONS may have upset people, but I didn't notice him personally attacking anyone. When you start using the word "stupid" as was used against him, it just shows your immaturity and THAT kind of post should be banned. I don't agree with immersion's opinion but just because the majority disagree with him does not justify a ban. If someone here says something you don't like it's your choice to respond or ignore. Keep arguing about it for two pages and people are going to get more upset. Hope I don't get banned for saying this.
Its a private legal matter. Why is it anyone's business especially if there's some apparent wrongdoing? Yeah I'm disappointed but I'm not crying about it. And I support Mathias 100% in his future musical endeavors!
Btw, I'm just stating my opinion, not looking to argue.
Tomas, just playing Devil's advocate here, but you did choose to share this information on the forum. People are now not allowed to discuss it? Personally I wish you would've kept the details off the forum as it seems a private matter, and to be honest it's not what Mathias' fans want to hear. Or you could've just said "for legal reasons" instead of the sordid details. I really didnt think it belonged on the forum at all.
