still annoyed i forgot to listen to Leapday Night on Leapday night. and i've moved my Smog lps up to 'C' to be with the Bill Callahan records.

nerve_pylon, Friday, 2 March 2012 03:24 (seven years ago) Permalink

Ha I saw Bill Callahan play at small bar in Beaumont,TX. It was my second time seeing him, first time being in Austin in 97. I saw him standing over by the bar and saw my chance to talk to him. But when I tapped him on the shoulder I was suddenly star struck and blurted out, "You're Smog" and he said "Well I'm just Bill Callahan now, but yeah" I mumbled about seeing him at the Electric Lounge years ago and how I bought his first tapes through mail order in high school. He was a nice guy, but I totally clammed up for some reason. He ended the conversation by saying hope you enjoy the show, maybe get rid of those old tapes.

JacobSanders, Friday, 2 March 2012 03:34 (seven years ago) Permalink

he seems like one of those 'disown-the-old-stuff' types. how was the show? i saw him when Apocalypse came out and he was fantastic, really intense. a good friend of mine worked w/ him recording in the old days, and has horror stories about working w/ him back then.

nerve_pylon, Friday, 2 March 2012 03:43 (seven years ago) Permalink

The first time I saw him, he kept his back towards the stage most of the night, but he music was really good! He played 'Stick In The Mud and Chosen One, along with Stranger. His voice was different then, and imo better. The beaumont show was good, but different, he played songs I didn't know, but they were good. He faced the crowd, but I was left with this weird feeling that smog had grown up now. His shyness and anger at the first show was really impressive and heartening, the recent show, he felt weathered and happier.

Scott I finally have a nice copy of Vance Or Towers, almost completing the list you made on another thread. I only have Trefethen and Boxer to find. Never got around to telling how much fun I've had searching for the records on that list, Howard Werth & the Moonbeams was really nice, all the Danny o"Keefe and Tim Hollier. Oh and Mick Greenwood's Living Game really impressed me. So many great records I've found because of it. I would love a second list of similar odd and ends.

JacobSanders, Friday, 2 March 2012 04:36 (seven years ago) Permalink

i don't even know what list that is!

scott seward, Friday, 2 March 2012 05:02 (seven years ago) Permalink

seems like a good list though. oh wait i would say that...

i never ever see that vance or towers album. ever! which seems weird that i wouldn't come across one other copy of it. but i haven't. probably on ebay for a buck.

scott seward, Friday, 2 March 2012 05:05 (seven years ago) Permalink

It's taken me almost a year to find it. I lost twice bidding on it. Found a wreaked copy that cleaned up nice, but the cover was laughable. But this week some guy posted a nice clean copy with a buy it now for fourteen dollars, I bought it 5 minutes after it was posted! The were the band on Carrie!!

really really pretty in oakland today. annie's getting her bangs trimmed after work in SF, so imma go plunder amoeba, then meet her and some friends for dinner and a drink.

i started thinking yesterday about doing this records road-trip sometime this year. the plan is to rent a car/van, set out from SF/oakland, and head up to portland, stopping EVERYWHERE records might be for sale, in a crazed attempt to have tons of fun and find some finds. annie is in as long as we stop to eat. every night id do a little online sale, hawking the best of the day's finds, and mail them from the road. id stay out for a week total, maybe, crashing with friends along the way, and maybe popping for a hotel room once or twice if the finding is good.

doesnt this sound really fun?

69, Friday, 2 March 2012 19:14 (seven years ago) Permalink

that's basically been my life, it's so much fun. I haven't made any west coast trips, wish I could. I might be stuck working in Texas for the next few years which bums me out a little, I prefer being far away. The states up north are so easy to drive across, so on saturday and sunday, we could drive across Indiana into Kentucky or Illinois. Maryland was great too, cause in a few hours you could be in so many different states. In texas it takes hours to get out of Texas!

JacobSanders, Friday, 2 March 2012 19:20 (seven years ago) Permalink

And so many other people are digging for records in Texas, last weekend we made a trip looking for records and so man places we stopped at, Antique stores or flea markets, we kept hearing the owners say, Ya know, just today someone else came by looking for records.

JacobSanders, Friday, 2 March 2012 19:23 (seven years ago) Permalink

man, it sounds so fun. being in the bay area means you can kind of do this while stationary, since there's so many people w lots of records around here. but there's something to the romance of the road.

so what's up with shrink wrap

always remove?

I have always kept it on mostly but now I've found a couple of records in my shelves where it may have pulled on the outer sleeve and bent it ... or made the edges wavy ... thinking bout going through and removing it all ...

dmr, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 01:01 (five years ago) Permalink

I always keep it on, unless there's any discoloration starting underneath the shrink, like mold.

JacobSanders, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 06:52 (five years ago) Permalink

I always remove it, conventional wisdom as I heard it was that it can warp the records/jackets.

money, chicken and other DNA (sleeve), Tuesday, 15 October 2013 15:29 (five years ago) Permalink

Isn't that more dependent on how you store your records than the shrink?

JacobSanders, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 15:46 (five years ago) Permalink

ive had situations happen where shrink did and did not contribute to a record or sleeve that did or did not warp, and storage has and has not been the actual cause of different instances.

in short, no general rule. i generally think of shrink as a positive thing, but i think of flat non-moldy jacket and record as much much better things.

69, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 22:23 (five years ago) Permalink

I consider finding a record still in shrink an upgrade. I'm usually willing to pay a little more for a record in shrink. I've also watch two copies of the same record end on ebay and the one in shrink sold for considerably more, even though the one without it was in excellent condition.

JacobSanders, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 22:49 (five years ago) Permalink

huh. so no consensus. I always considered it extra protection and kept it on but I just found a couple in my shelves that it seems like this happened to ---> conventional wisdom as I heard it was that it can warp the records/jackets

dmr, Monday, 21 October 2013 16:32 (five years ago) Permalink

I guess I will keep on keepin' it on unless I see any evidence of warping on that specific record

dmr, Monday, 21 October 2013 16:33 (five years ago) Permalink

actually I don't think I've ever seen warping on a record from the shrinkwrap. just on some jackets.

dmr, Monday, 21 October 2013 16:35 (five years ago) Permalink

if its too tight around the cover it can cause damage over time.

scott seward, Monday, 21 October 2013 17:32 (five years ago) Permalink

sometimes i take shrink off in the store just so people can see the covers better. like, nice covers and the shrink is kinda wrinkly or torn.

scott seward, Monday, 21 October 2013 17:33 (five years ago) Permalink

also, yeah, if a record has been subjected to heat the shrink can obviously damage it. other than that, its fine to leave it on.

scott seward, Monday, 21 October 2013 17:34 (five years ago) Permalink

note: do not store a boxes of shrinkwrapped lps in your attic for over 15 years. :\

Penn Jillette makes stop in Greenfield and is glad he did

By DAVID RAINVILLE Recorder Staff

GREENFIELD — “When I came back to town, I didn’t realize Greenfield had turned into Brooklyn.”

Penn Jillette, internationally known comedian, author and illusionist, returned to his hometown of Greenfield Thursday night, and spent Friday walking around town before speaking at Greenfield Community College.

“When I last left Greenfield, it was a depressing, dead factory town,” he admitted.

He was impressed by all the changes that happened while he was away.

“Now, the old Clark’s Sport Shop has turned into a great performance place; it’s a club I’d love to play,” said Jillette. He was referring to the Arts Block, at Main Street and Court Square. If he had more time in town, he said, he’d try to take in a show.

In 2007, Jillette went on national television, saying that a Walmart was just the thing Greenfield needed. The town was featured on former Showtime series, “Penn & Teller: Bulls**t!” in an episode that focused on small towns’ resistance to the retail giant. On the show, Jillette lampooned Al Norman, nicknamed the “sprawlbuster” for his anti-Walmart agenda.

Jillette has since changed his mind.

“The way Greenfield looks now, I think we might have been on the wrong side of that one,” he admitted.

He couldn’t believe that the sleepy town he’d left now sports two Thai restaurants, a revamped Bank Row block and a used record store.

Jillette said he spent $200 at John Doe Jr. Used Records, buying new copies of old favorites, from stand-up comedy albums to old “dirty party records” from the 1960s.

His appearance at GCC was one of a handful of speaking engagements to promote his 2012 book, “Every Day is an Atheist Holiday,” which was recently released in paperback.

Jillette was also taken aback with the venue. Since he’d last seen the community college, it’s undergone major renovations.

“It used to be a depressing idea of a community college, a place I wouldn’t go. Now, I’m sitting here and enjoying it.”

Jillette sat in a cushy chair in front of the southern-facing, allglass wall of the upstairs library, watching the sun go down on what he said must have been “the most beautiful day of 2013.”

“Sitting here, I can’t imaging why I ever wanted to leave Greenfield.”

It was a matter of opportunity, or lack thereof, that made Jillette strap a few belongings to his back and set out on the open road, to make a go of show business. He said he knew he wasn’t going to get his big break in Franklin County.
