  1. Been spending the past few days on www.jambands.am which is the Armenian hub of jam - pretty vibrant scene over there for sure. I kind of like my Armenian handle տարօրինակություն better to be honest but it's good to be back all the same...
  2. No idea why I bought this - make me an offer if interested - it's a print at home ticket so I can email it. Section 119 row 7 July 16th Interesting trades considered...
  3. Absolutely - please do - have sealed Junta (not pollock edition), Party Time and White tape if you need as well. The sound on the Junta album is awesome...
  4. Hit up Cheapies and Dr Disc in Hamilton yesterday didn't see it in either wondering if anyone found it north of the border. It wasn't on the list of Canadian releases on the record store day site not sure what the scoop is if anyone saw it or scored it would be interested to know...
  5. Ha I've spent $200 on stupider shit than this - might have to go and show Bobby a good time...
  6. Tried to send a pm but your box is full brah - need these tix please can send EMT asap. Shoot me an email bobbyweir@hotmail.com...
  7. Greetings earthlings, Yes FLAC is the way to go. J River is supposed to be the best media player but you have to pay for it - Foobar 2000 is free so I would use that one - it works and sounds just fine... For players, the Fiio X1 player is like $150 which would do the trick, they have a few higher models as well. Yes the Sony players are also supposed to be quite good. A lot of Android phones will handle FLAC no problem as well. If you're Apple all the way it's an obstacle if not you have lots of options. Good software to go CD->FLAC is called EAC - exact audio copy. Even if you just have a decent set of headphones it's worth it - memory is cheap now so you may as well have the resolution that was on the original source. Streaming is great, I've been using Tidal for awhile which is FLAC quality and they have lots of shit that I don't have but I also have tons of shit that they don't have so it's good to have both options at your fingertips.
  8. Thanks for the heads up, solid show for sure. Hipster central...
  9. Was eyeing this one the other day and saw the CMAC conflict. Wondering if Isbell->DTE Phish might be a good call too. I like the Truckers but Jason Isbell is a cut above IMHO, really great songwriter...
  10. If anyone is up for Merriweather let me know, have decent seats both nights and hotel. Would rather see them after they've had a chance to play a bit and going someplace new is always more of an adventure...
  11. They mean, like Hollywood blockbuster type films right? Not like the artistic indie type shit that I usually download... :surprise:
  12. Does it have to specifically be a phono input, or could I just plug a record player into an AUX input? Is there a difference between these two types of inputs? --yes phono input is amplified so either you have to get an external phono amp or you buy it in the unit. I found this used Denon amp but it says "no phono input". Could I plug a record player into an AUX, and if so is there a downside to this?--not without an external phono amp unless you get a turntable with this built in(only on newer and generally cheezy models). Two channel vs. surround -- Admittedly I have to do some reading up better understand this. My intuitive and uneducated thinking would have been that surround sound is good. If I were to go for a two channel receiver, would I be looking at older models? (i.e. do they still make two channel or did they go exclusively to surround, then dolby 5.1, etc?)--if you spend all of your budget on 2 channel you'll do way better, if you want to listen primarily to music and TV and movies are secondary don't even think twice about it. 2 channel works fine for TV and movies provided everything is set up properly but most surround systems aren't great at reproducing music well. What Fluffhead77 described is pretty well right on the money--you may need to buy some contact cleaner to clean the switches out if they're scratchy but that's not hard to do at all--just unplug it first and you're good...
  13. I would get an older japanese integrated amp or receiver--Yamaha, Denon, Onkyo with a phono input--some nice pieces out there from the 90's. Speakers would be a bit of a tough call but if you can get anything britsh for around $100 go for it--Kef, B&W, Mission etc. Turntable would likely be Japanese to fill the rest of your budget--something late 80's or early 90's vintage from whoever would work. If you do 2 channel rather than surround you'll do a lot better regardless...
  14. Just noticed this today--didn't buy tix ahead of time and had some TM gift certificates I was going to use up--bummer for sure. Was looking forward to it especially the sound system which was supposed to be top notch. Neil does what Neil wants to do no doubt about that, when the other dates were cancelled I wondered if this might happen. It'll still be a good time but the ticket price definitely reflected Neil being on the bill...
  15. I'm either looking for someone to come with or looking to unload a pair of tix, hit me up if interested in either option...
  16. I just checked for kicks to see what was available and lawns are up for grabs again...
  17. I find this site to be hillarious you might too: Emails from an asshole This guy basically messes with people on Craigslist or Kijiji or whatever. I imagine this is what Davey Boy does in his spare time. Some pretty hilarious ones for sure, here is "Expired Phish ticket" not the best one up there but you get the idea: From Mike Anderson to **********@***********.org at 1:30 PM JUN 08 2009 Hello, I have an extra ticket for Phish at Jones Beach on June 5th that I will sell to you for $60. Let me know if you want it. Mike From ********@yahoo.com to Me why the fuck would i want that the show already happened. From Mike Anderson to ********@yahoo.com Well why did you put the ad up then? I just thought you wanted the ticket stub for nostalgic value since the show was so fucking good. From ********@yahoo.com to Me I PUT THE AD UP ON JUNE 3 DUMBASS BEFORE THE SHOW HAPPPENED. A LOT OF FUCKING GOOD IT DID I MISSED THE SHOW CMON MAN $60 FOR A STUB ARE YOU NUTS From Mike Anderson to ********@yahoo.com So I guess you don't want the stub? If you want, for $60 I can come to your house and play a clip of the show I taped on my cell phone. It is 30 seconds of trey jamming out during Split Open and Melt. You can't really see anything but a bunch of lights and you can't really hear anything either, but a true phan would appreciate it. From ********@yahoo.com to Me MAN YOU ARE AN IDIOT STOP TRYING TO SELL ME YOUR WORTHLESS SHIT
  18. If anyone is looking for good seats I have 2 pairs available for Phish @ Molson Amp: Sec 203 Row K seats 32/33 Sec 305 Row A seats 23/24 Interesting trades considered...
  19. They are hard TM/LN tix. Separate tickets for all 3 nights(6 tix total) but same seat locations. Shoot me a PM at some point, I'm in no huge rush but would prefer not have to send to the US if possible.
  20. Howdy! I have 2 x 3 day passes for Phish @ SPAC--same seats all 3 nights which are Sec 15 Row H. Looking for face, interesting trades considered.
