Took the wifey to see Chris Isaak at the HOB Cleveland on Monday. She's been a huge fan for years, but I was slightly into his stuff. I knew it, but didn't hardcore into it. After seeing him live that has changed as he and his band put on a FANTASTIC live show. Lots of energy, terrific playing, and the greatest interaction with the crowd I've seen in my concert going. Chris tells stories about songs, jokes with the group and the crowd, etc. Really awesome experience.

Thanks to Amazon shipping stuff early, Johnny Cash's American VI. It's the best of the American series since Unchained.

If CD's are two dollars cheaper than MP3s and can be received three days before the release date, it might take a while for the medium to totally die out.

JediTricks
02-20-2010, 09:53 PM
Amazon doesn't always have CDs cheaper than MP3 downloads, but when they do, or they're the same, I buy the CDs so I can rip them myself and have a physical version. I'm starting to wonder why though, as I NEVER play these friggin' disks anymore, they're just taking up space storing data inefficiently since I have mountains of storage I'm not currently using. I've been toying with ripping my library losslessly and storing on a few HDs. I've got about a terabyte free now across various machines, 300gb free on my desktop, old laptop, and external hd each, and even combining the space taken up by all 3, my meager CD collection still takes up more space.

Eggman, Beastie Boys, from Paul's Boutique, which I bought from Amazon as a $5 MP3 download instead of $15 for the CD.

El Chuxter

$15 is what that's going for on CD? Ouch. I remember it was a $5.99 CD back when I got it... when there were no MP3's.

Also, it's kind of nice to have something physical in hand to look at, particularly if there are lyrics and other liner notes or pictures. I've bought a lot of individual tracks from iTunes, but I have yet to buy an entire album in mp3 format except for some that I was only able to get on iTunes (A couple Frank Black B-Side compilations, and a PJ Harvey iTunes Originals session). I also just discovered that Black Happy's The Last Polka will be available in mp3 format from Amazon on Tuesday. I passed on that years ago when I saw it. The cheapest it is available for now on Amazon is $29.97, with a couple new ones selling for nearly $200.

High Plains Drifter, Beasties, same album.


$15 is what that's going for on CD? Ouch. I remember it was a $5.99 CD back when I got it... when there were no MP3's.Yeah, it's $15 for the current-print version (20th anniversary) or $23 for the original print edition. The album prices are all over the map, License to Ill is $9 tho' which is decent.

I don't remember CDs being $6-esque cheap before '95 (the birth of the MP3 format), they didn't start to finally get inexpensive until about 8 or 9 years ago IMO.

The cheapest it is available for now on Amazon is $29.97, with a couple new ones selling for nearly $200.That's why I mentioned that I have 300gb free on multiple machines though, including an external HD that can be connected to my 2 laptops and my PS3, not to mention my old 1.6ghz desktop machine I don't use anymore. So it would take a catastrophic failure of not 1 machine but 3, my desktop, my laptop, and my external HD. Anything that kills all 3 at once is going to melt the hell out of my CD collection. :p

Hell, my MP3 collection right now is 12gb, so lossless file versions that'd be ~120gb, I could probably also cloud-computer that into the internet.

Liner notes and album art have gotten pretty chintzy the last decade or so IMO. And how stupid is it that CDs now come in cases that are either more fragile than the disc itself, or in some goofy eco-friendly paper crap that doesn't protect the disc worth a damn?

El Chuxter
02-20-2010, 10:33 PM
I was collecting CDs long before I had access to a computer and connection that were fast enough to download MP3's (around 2002 or so). I'm not sure I could fit the whole shebang on a normal computer.

As CDs die out slowly, I find that one can find good stuff very, very cheap. Do I download the album for $8+, or get the used copy in excellent condition for $1, and have a backup if the digital version is corrupted?

JediTricks
02-20-2010, 11:07 PM
You can get a USB-powered 320gb external HD for $55 these days. That would hold around 300 FLAC lossless albums, or 3,000 MP3 albums. Dollar for dollar, that storage medium is cheaper and easily copyable should you want a second backup. Since it's not an optical medium, there's no worry about scratching discs (see my Prince Batman CD for the horrors of scratched, nigh-irreplaceable discs), and it takes up less space than 5 jewel cases stacked. It doesn't require a laser-based reader, and while they are still fairly ubiquitous, some day they may not be.

Also, I've started to notice as I'm getting more into my MP3 player that older CDs are mastered just plain wrong. Some are mastered cheap at low bitrates, others are mastered with wrong levels, and a lot are mastered at low volumes - ZZ Top "Eliminator" was one I had to adjust using Audacity because the whole friggin' CD is half the volume of most other albums. A ton of my oldest CDs are like that, like they're made for old people or something, and I can't constantly crank the volume on my stereo in shuffle because the next song will be too loud.

Of course, selling CDs can be a boon, although untested legally under the overreaching DMCA law, apparently it's legal to buy a CD, make a single copy for archive purposes, and then sell the original. I haven't done this because right now having a CD archive is nice, but considering how much space these f'ers are taking up in my apartment, I'm thinking it's nearly time to change that. Also, I can't find decent used CDs at low prices for crap in-town, everybody thinks everything should be on ebay for a thousand bucks these days. I actually have to go to friggin' Amazon for used CDs at decent prices! How stupid is that?

JediTricks
02-20-2010, 11:40 PM
"Hey Ladies", same guys, same album.

So I've decided to make an experiment out of this, because there a mountain of pros and cons on both sides. Examples: MP3s don't take up any resources except electricty while Used CDs are actively recycling. Used CD sales don't pay artists for their work, while MP3s are easily pirated.

I've perused Amazon and picked up all 4 Beastie Boys albums I don't have, as used CDs. Each one had to have original packaging in some condition, and be under $4 with shipping. I spent a total of $13.05 with shipping for the 4 albums, 2 of them should be here on Tuesday.

Once I get them, the question will be: are they readable discs, is their packaging in acceptable condition, will they get here in reasonable amounts of time, and will I have a place to put them once they do? (Currently, my CD tower is full and has jewel cases stuffed in the top, so this one is already "no" but how much it matters is the goal IMO.)


I suspect I'll get at least 75% acceptable ratings here, but I do think the near future of media purchases are going to be digital rather than physical, and once the useless labels and studios and publishers are bypassed, pricing will go down on new product to make digital piracy not as commonplace.

I got all 4 used albums in the experiment, and all 4 have scratches on the discs. The packaging is in good shape (although To The 5 Burroughs and Hello Nasty are both a bit worse for wear because they use those dopey paper packages). I haven't played or ripped them though, just got in and am exhausted. I don't have any disc filler right now either, so if they don't play, they're worthless.

JediTricks
02-26-2010, 01:55 AM
Whatcha Want, then Sabotage, Beastie Boys. So far, the sub-$4 albums may have scratches but they're ripping ok. As archival quality data, they won't take a lot more abuse and stay usable, but for now they're doing what they need, and cheaper than MP3 purchases. Their jewel cases are fairly acceptable too. But now the real challenging albums come up, the ones in the cardboard sleeves are more scratched, and already Hello Nasty is ripping slower than the previous 2.

JediTricks
02-26-2010, 02:07 AM
Intergalactic, BBs. Well, it's done its thing with no stuttering.

The final album is up, and although it's rated the highest of the used albums, there's a few severe scratches on the outer rim and a surface spot that is totally abnormal.

Ch-Check It Out, Beasties. Holy crap, this final album blasted through its rip! Scratches on the outer rim and weird spots apparently aren't over the tracks (thankfully, CDs start from the spindle instead of acting like records). Less tracks on the album, it turns out that's why Hello Nasty was slower to rip. Now playing is Root Down.


Ok, I have to admit, so far, the experiment says buying used CDs is better than new MP3s, although the artists aren't getting paid for my purchase which is on my mind.

But now I have to find space for these albums, and while 2 of them are jewel cases that I can remove the disc and printed materials from, 2 are not and cannot be separated from their printed matter at all. Archiving my newly-completed BBs collection is a question mark that I won't be able to answer for a few days.

An Open Letter to NYC, Beastie Boys, from To The 5 Burroughs. Not a bad album, I was growing frustrated with the BBs after traversing the increasingly frustrating Check Your Head through Hello Nasty. It's definitely a thinner album than Paul's Boutique, but it also abandons the annoying overuse of gimmickry that overwhelmed Ill Communication, and lacks the oddball jazz weirdness of their '90s material.

JJB, a BSLOS, a.k.a. Bad Song Lyric of Shame must be typed when one makes an error either pointed out by him-/herself and cannot edit the post, or by another Forumite. The level of badness (listen to "Obsession" by Anamotion for its etymology :rolleyes: ) is yours to determine: song quality, artist respectability, genre lameness, etc.

Allow me to demonstrate. If I posted "Michael Jordan was so over-rated. I mean, he never won a title at any level and he retired in shame over that apartment complex scandal," clearly that is untrue (except for the over-rated part :p ), and if someone pointed that out, I would have to reply with something like (I have used this one before):

"Many people are happy
And many people sad.
Some people have many things
That others can only wish they had."

So search your repressed memories for similar terribility (no source of that word's origins), sir.

Going through albums to put on the computer, "Long Way to Go" by Gwen Stefani and Andre 3000. I was a bit surprised. I remembered this piece of **** album (Love Angel Music Baby) as only having one decent song and being the single biggest ripoff of a CD I ever bought, but, not hearing the whole steaming pile at once, I found four songs that were decent enough to actually listen to out of the ****ty context of the ****ty album (What You Waiting For, Cool, and The Real Thing, in addition to the Andre 3000 collaboration).

Gwen Stefani still needs to be forcibly given a sex change so that she can be repeatedly kicked in the nads by everyone who heard the other eight steaming piles on this album. And she should be thrown in Leavenworth unless she consents to never put out another solo album, and to not put out another mediocre No Doubt album like their last one.

Okay, I wasn't trying to sound obnoxious, but that comes as a bit of a surprise.

Goldfinger, Shirley Bassey - I'm playing my Bond playlist. It ends at The World is Not Enough because what Madonna did with "Die Another Day" should have gotten her tried in The Hague. I thought about adding "You Know My Name" but it's a bit overproduced in the wrong direction and generic rock for a Bond tune, and since Madonna ruined the run, I figured why waste the money. And "Another Way to Die" is just right out at that point, it's a rather mediocre pairing of Alicia Keys and Jack White into a mess. The problem is that 007's producers have turned the once-iconic Bond Themesong into a cheap ploy for more marketing.

I dunno if it's true, but I read somewhere that AC-DC has never released a greatest hits album because, if they were ever to do so, it allows the label to release subsequent greatest hits collection without their approval. So Iron Man 2 is, in essence, their second movie soundtrack that's a greatest hits collection without being called such. If it's true, pretty clever. I still think they might be surprised if they just allowed their songs to be downloaded on iTunes and Amazon; they'd make a killing off "You Shook Me All Night Long" alone.

Really, why hasn't Steve Jobs or Bill Gates created a better speech synthesizer for the smartest man alive? He's always stuck with that 80s Macintosh voice that's funny to say bad words with.

No, there's a video from Feb still using the previous voice synth, so I'm guessing they're still tweaking it into his chair's computer.

I did find this keen video of him during the Zero-G flight a few years ago though: http://hk.video.yahoo.com/video/video.html?id=95191

Listening to the album Black Ice, by AC/DC, straight through. I won't make it to the end, for some reason, I never do. It's a decent album, especially after 15 years of mediocrity (and even more in my book since Brian Johnson carries none of the qualities brought by Bon Scott), but I haven't made enough time to sit through it straight through while paying attention, I always end up jumping around from song to song.

While the Futurama season begins on June 24, the Devo episode isn't until September.Comedy Central put up money for the 4 tv movies over the last few years, then when they were happy with the ratings, they ok'ed a new season of the canceled genius that is Futurama.

Devo will be mutated and fighting for mutant rights.

Getting around to importing some of my old hair metal albums for the iPod, which is funny, because even if it's not the type of music I listen to all the time, it's the music I play loudly in the car, which is where I use my iPod. I discovered that, somehow, when importing my Kiss music, I missed Gene's solo albums. (The second one is no huge loss, but the first is classic.)

Currently listening to Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue, "Slow Poke Music." This is a rather underrated album, methinks.
