  1. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    look forward to seeing you new setup! Does everyone here either know of or use the vinyl collective boards? https://boards.vinylcollective.com/forum/4-vinyl-collective-message-board/ There can be a lot of pretentious douchebaggery there but it is a good place to keep up with releases coming up and what not for anyone who is an avid collector. Anyhow in terms of things i've picked up lately, not too much but a few... -Lille Mae - Other Girls (indie exclusive colored) -Almost Famous OST (promo only) -The Melvins - Pinkus Abortion Technician -The MC5 - Shakin' Street (Which is a comp of demos, live tracks, etc) -The Stooges - 1970 b/w Not Right single (it's a 7" that Rhino put out back in 2005)
  2. Mr. Bungle Reunion

    yeah and the other guys seem super stoked to have them, so I'm sure it will be a real fun time. Honestly, anything with Patton on stage is a blast.
  3. Mr. Bungle Reunion

    Got tickets for the Friday LA show. Cant wait. Love that Scott Ian is gonna be part of the band. Now we just need some Fantomas and Tomahawk shows.
  4. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    very cool! I might upgrade mine in the next couple years or so, but very happy with it for now. I would love to get one of these some day though as a additional table.. (mainly just because it's the model Alex has in A Clockwork Orange)
  5. Concerts in 2019

    So got my first tickets for 2020 today. Mr. Bungle!!!!! cant wait.
  6. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts: Now $399

    probably from amoeba I am assuming since they have on there and it says no cassette. I am thinking one of two things, whoever traded it in sold or kept the cassette or Amoeba doesn't realize that it is hidden and it is actually in there stuffed in the back still.
  7. Pets!

    At the end of last year, one of my dogs started having seizures. He had 3 in a month and a half. I had tons of tests done on him for them to find nothing and tell me he is idiopathic epileptic and put him on a ton of meds (pills 5x a day). I pretty much had enough of the vet and the over medication was turning him in to a zombie so by altering his diet, controlling his environment a bit more and slowly weaning him off some of the meds he is doing great now and hasn't had a seizure since those 3 with the last being in December. He is completely off one of the meds now and only has to take pills 2x a day which is much better for everyone and he is a super happy dude again. Anyway here is him and his sister... Django: Mia:
  8. Concerts in 2019

    Just got tickets for Brian Wilson and the zombies next month. Super stoked to see Wilson/Jardin again
  9. Top 10 favorite horror films/ general horror discussion

    Hammer is awesome. Love all the Cushing Frankenstein films. Love Twins Of Evil as well.
  10. Top 10 favorite horror films/ general horror discussion

    I don't know how you can leave the 60's out of this discussion, with that said here are my top ten-ish: (there are quite a few of these that can alternate with other films but it gives you the jist of my taste...and some I know you can argue aren't horror but you could argue they are as well, so whatever.) Rosemary's Baby (Polanski) Phantasm (Coscarelli) The Brood (Cronenberg) The Tenant (Polanski) Videodrome (Cronenberg) Phantom of the Paradise (De Palma) The Neon Demon (Winding Refn) Eraserhead (Lynch) The Babadook (Kent) A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (Amirpour)
  11. I don't think it's a lack of balls of involving manson. Quentin doesn't shy away from controversy. Where he may have mis-stepped and I am realizing it more and more as I hear people talk about the film is what you mentioned...not everyone knows who manson is or what the family did. I've lived my whole love 10 minutes away from Spahn Ranch and my parents and grandparents lived in the valley in the 60s/70s so for me, it's something that has always been known about and talked about. On that note, it works great for me and seeing all the LA scenes is a gas as well. One friend I went with this past weekend had no idea of the history so while he dug the movie, it didn't hit as hard for him. The ending especially absolutely relies on you knowing what happened that night. and just curious, who did he kill? Any of the known killings, he was generally absent or left before the actual murders took place (including hinman and the labiancas). The only one that is known that he may have possibly been directly involved with is Shorty Shea and even that would still be a group effort that his followers probably carried out with him present.
  12. Just go watch a couple interviews with lee and youll see how cocky he is. The way moh portrayed him wasn't a huge exaggeration, he even got down the speech inflections and hand gestures he used while talking. The ironic thing is people want to base lee off the stoic, dominant characters he played while damning the way he is played as a character. On top of that, the overly PC crowd is just looking for a racist angle for their tirades. The scene is great. as for him not showing Manson doing anything...that's because he didn't. He made it very clear that Manson had control over the family and that they were doing his bidding, which is how it really happened. Plus the movie isn't about Manson and the family, it's about the hierarchy of Hollywood and aging actors struggling to find their way in a changing scene. The Manson family played a part in the changing of the times so they are included. Ive seen it twice now and love it. I'm a huge QT fan and to me, Basterds will always be his masterpiece but this falls in the middle of his films for me around how I'd rank KILL BILL.

    ordered the deluxe edition of the Ann Arbor Blues festival set this morning from third man...
  14. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts: Now $399

    probably... just slap a sticker on the shrink and they are good to go. We know they have thousands left and most RSD releases are between 1000-3500 copies or so, so that sounds about right.
  15. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Was able to snag a copy of the limited release-weekend only vinyl LP of the OUATIH soundtrack. It was only available at Amoeba Hollywood and the new bev (quentins theater)
