If you have a copy or two of a particular album, then purchase what is advertised as a White Hot Stamping, and this new album sounds just like one of your old ones, how do you know if you just purchased a clunker, or if one of your copies was already a White Hot Stamping?
No. It makes you honest.
A dandy of an assessment with the testing!
I must say that you gave an informative, concise response and you were neither condescending nor insulting.
A glimmer of hope for you yet.
If you could for a moment tell that giant ego of yours to take five, you may understand the gist of my post.
It also does not speak well of a company and owner if they are so willing to share customer information.
Okay DS, your story checks out. Well the part about buying it anyway. Much to my surprise. Now if you can tell how awesome it is I will be even more surprised.
I wonder if you can ban someone for stalking.
How disturbingly creepy.
Honestly, what went through your head that you felt compelled to expend time and energy to verify if a fellow member bought what he said he bought??
Picasso, Van Gogh, whatever. Wasn’t even Starry Night. The Night Cafe. Like it matters.
Apparently he has not.
I have noticed miller is a stickler for facts and accuracy.
Unless he is the one who is being corrected.
Because miller went to see him.
Perhaps he's a fan of Van Goghs....
Ah, my mistake.
But it does remind me:
miller, I ordered a print of Picasso's 'The Sunflowers' off of Amazon last night.
When can I expect it to ship?
Spreading more of your charm I see.....
Do you know the specifics of the turntable you are going to demo the album on?
You know, to prepare yourself for the onslaught of tomfoolery if you don't care for the sound....
There's a small aberrant group here who live to mock, and we can only dream of the day they back off to the level of tomfoolery.
You are deserving of every shred of it.
I'm going to buy it simply because I can't pass up a terrific name like Zoot Sims!
It is quite a read....
You should change from oregonpapa to proudpapa....!
I believe we are at the crescendo of miller informing us to go away because this is nothing but blather and a waste of space on his personal thread.
That will give me ample opportunity to inform him he brought it upon himself by stalking you. He can't stand it when he doesn't have ironclad control of the narrative.
Do you have any idea as to the oldest album in your collection?
I know by what you’ve posted, you have quite an eclectic and enviable stash.
Just wondering if you can share any rare goodies from the 40’s or 50’s.
Hope you are doing well!
Thank you for sharing, Frank.
I know this is pure corn, but it is a soundtrack of your life. Snapshots of memories must surely come to mind while listening. Wonderfully extensive list.
Frank and anyone interested-
Pick up a copy of the book 'The Forgotten Soldier' by Guy Sajer.
He writes of what he experienced as a Wermacht soldier on the Eastern Front.
The misery he endured and what he and countless others went through, soldiers and civilians alike, makes what Americans at home dealt with seem like a trip to Disneyland.
I don't know whether to laugh or to say shame on you. :-)
- "I expect that millercarbon will inform me when my record arrives"
Personally, I laughed.
Think that’s something, partial tally what they got through lend-lease:
400,000 jeeps and trucks
107,000 tons cotton
2,700,000 tons petroleum
4,500,000 tons food
Explosives, guns, ammo, copper, steel, aluminum, medicine, and one entire Ford tire factory.
That’s a lot of rubles!
I’m sorry, what was this thread about?
Any word from miller on when your album's arriving?
So...you're not one to kiss and tell?
So, ’Virtue signaling’ causes homelessness?? Bump your head on your Moabs?
I see this is now your new ’go to’ phrase.
Glad to see you’ve branched out from ’snowflake’.
Say, talk to Tom today? When is glupson’s album due in?
Now see what you've done, miller?
Your rant has taken this thread completely off topic.
Just remember the line from Gone With the Wind:
"You should be kissed and often, by someone who knows how."
I cannot help you with that, but perhaps Tom or Carol from Better-Records.com can.
Now please try to stay on topic.
A bargain if it is one from his Moulin de la Galette series.
As we all know, Picasso was a disciple of the Dutch masters...
I thought you said virtue signalers cause homelessness, now you say libtards cause homelessness. Which one is it?
Are virtue signalers libtards, or are libtards virtue signalers? Are they in cahoots?
Perhaps libtard signalers cause homelessness. Or virtue libtards. What about homeless libtards?
Audio is very confusing....
It seems that people do call Tom more often than I would expect from simple business transaction.
Perhaps he's a terrific kisser.
I'm sorry but we're trying to stay on topic.
If we start getting into miller's lack of knowledge, it may be a point of no return...
If you say "talked" with Tom the midwits here cannot figure out that could mean email.
To express or exchange ideas by means of spoken words.
To communicate through the exchanging of letters, email or by other electronic means.
Seems you're the only one who's confused.
Quite interested in hearing the outcome.
Will miller be joining you, or do you plan on enjoying yourself?
Did Carol come through??
perhaps use Windex and the Coton de Tulear?
Pardon my ignorance in these matters, but what is a tagger?
Don't forget to thoroughly clean the copies you already have, to put them on a level playing field.
Were you able to give the original albums a good cleaning?
let me offer my condolences, and compliments, having to go to all that trouble only to wind up corroborating every single thing I have been saying. Sometimes darn near word for word.
I cut my lawn yesterday.
Want to take credit for that, too?
Make a digital copy first!
thecarpathian fell into the trap here.
I did indeed.
I foolishly thought that by pointing out to him that he indeed has much to offer this forum, his knowledge and experience would be more well received if he would drop the narcissistic condescension that is weaved into his posts, and the calling out of his transgressions would disappear.
But instead of taking it at face value, he does what he is known for: Attack. Self praise. Belittling. Accusations of hatred.
Interesting that he writes the very things he rails against.
Nobody wants to compare my White Hot Stamper to their own.
I would certainly take you up on it, but I currently do not have a comparable album with which to compare.
Or a turntable.
I hope that does not make me a Chinese Communist.
I see that skypunk is back with a new user name.
You incorrectly state that digital is a ’flash in the pan’.
Digital has been around for decades, is overwhelmingly dominating the industry, and is going nowhere.
Perhaps you are ignorant of the phrase and that is why you used it incorrectly.
I was familiar with that phrase 40 years ago.
It always takes a while for the masses to catch up with the leaders.
Maybe he could call it a Dicyanoacetylene Ozone hot stamper.
