  • jjfad027 said: What's black music?    I'm guessing from his name that he's Japanese. For some reason it's fairly common in Japan to use the description "black music". I found it pretty off-putting when I was there, and I still don't know…
  • Junior said: I now have an iPhone 6S for work and was curious to see what had changed but it still looks like there is no proper equaliser and the player itself is on a par with the appalling PlayMusic app. Am I missing a trick here or is it …
  • On the music listening tip, the jetAudio app has come a long way and also includes the Bongiovi music enhancement thing. I swear by it now. MP3 game still needs to be impeccable but mp3tag can help with that (in Windows anyway). 
  • Hey all -- lurker here, who was interested to read what you folks do with organizing the collections. I thought my setup was relatively simple but when I typed it out it seems more complicated. Here's how mine's organized: Box s…
  • It sounds like the Taxi Driver theme.
  • The other thing to keep in mind is that (unless something has changed) you can only bid up to ┬Ñ5000 with a regular (i.e. free) account ÔÇô if you want to bid more, you need some sort of enhanced account. So if you're bidding on in-demand st…
  • Bump from a lurker to say I ordered a bag from Tucker Bloom (the north to south messenger bag) and I'm really happy with it. For anyone that orders the shoulder pad, make sure you say which way it should curve. I wear the bag on the opposite shoulde…
  • Jonny_Paycheck said:yeah, just to chime in - mistakes happen, it's a part of the business. Some people's ears and eyes aren't as careful, and sometimes a record in your "personal collection" hasn't been played in 5 years. I rarely offer (or receive)…
  • If it does end up resolved to your satisfaction, I'd encourage you to leave positive feedback briefly explaining that ("issue with the record was quickly and amicably resolved with friendly seller, thanks") because in my view as a customer that's th…
  • Hey, I had this problem before. A client taught me how to make a batch file that did it, and that worked ok (and is totally googleable), but I also found this program that does the same thing perhaps a little better: http://www.karenwa…
  • I almost never post here (lurker related), but thought I'd remind folks about that James Joyce / Kool Keith quiz that is sort of related (comparing rappers to writers): http://hudsonhongo.com/joyce/ Edit: there's a part 2! http://hudsonhongo.…
  • Thought I'd pop out of the shadows to let interested folks know that Juno Records has copies for sale: http://www.juno.co.uk/products/kiosk-marc-moulin-mona-call-reissue/512383-01/ I believe Daptunes also has a copy for sale on discogs.
  • http://www.discogs.com/buy/Vinyl/Herb-Geller-An-American-In-Hamburg-The-View-From-Here/64316632?ev=bp_titl Not cheap exactly but a decent price for this, assuming grading is as described and you're not OCD about covers.
  • Freddie Hubbard - Spirits of Trane Art Blakey - One for Trane John Klemmer - Prayer for Coltrane / Waltz for Coltrane
  • When we were kids, my sister and I were convinced they were saying "take the back-right turn" on "Paperback Writer". It's the title of the song!

  • I picked up something like this on Craigslist for $20 or so, and it's served me well:
  • Kinetic said:Oh and I have found soem massive bargains on dicogs too. I think because it's still in its infancy, you can still find bargains more easily on there. 20 Quid OG Skull Snaps is the one that stands out. I've had the same experience (Koo…
  • Frank said:staxwax said: I repeat, there was and will *not* be any significant release of radioactivity from the damaged Japanese reactors. By "significant" I mean a level of radiation of more than what you would receive on - say -…

  • I've had good experiences. I've contributed a lil' bit, and never had an entry deleted. Nowadays mods mostly post comments telling you to change stuff. Even if it does t get the "correct" vote, the entry is there, visible and part of your collection…
  • The biggest advantage for me is SBSettings, a little popup window that allows you to control some common settings (WiFi, push mail, airplane, brightness) without having to plow through the iPhone's settings feature every time. You can also add more …
  • I can't listen to it at work to confirm, but this should be dirty enough: DivShare File - dirty.mp3
  • 1977 reissue is black. The date's on the labels: http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=1750129 (I uploaded the photos)
  • Snuffdaddy said:The LP not having a proper release is a huge crime in hip hop history to me The LP has had a proper release: http://www.discogs.com/Large-Professor-The-The-LP/release/1896200 Most of my favourites have already been mentioned…
  • Does this count? I went to high school with him.
  • The last 2 places I've lived have laundry schedules (every unit gets a time slot, anyone can book an empty slot). It was weird at first, but now that I've gotten used to it I'm not sure I'd want to go back to the anarchy of unscheduled laundry.
  • If we might expand into celebs generally, a store owner in Tokyo told me Randy Johnson is big into bootlegs.
  • Which province are you in? I'm in BC, I know our Employment Standards Act outlines notice requirements for terminations . Any employer can terminate any employee without cause and have them leave immediately, they just have to pay them for the notic…
  • Some dude downtown Toronto a few years ago was shaking his cup and singing "if you're happy and you know it spare some change" *shake*shake*, huge smile on his face. That got some money from me.
