Yeah. That was a fun In-Store. Bagley still regrets not attending, but doesn't want to be reminded of that.
I am not going to make the effort for this either. Will very likely go to the 930 show though.

seems like a jump the shark moment for vinyl
This new vinyl record is completely silent on both sides

Note: this does not require a record player to be fully enjoyed

except that it won't be silent because it's vinyl - so you'll have hiss, pops, and all of the other artifacts that make vinyl superior to any other physical media.

also completely derivative... Cage did it better, and in 1952 at that.

Note: this does not require a record player to be fully enjoyed

between this and "Head here to order a copy via its Kickstarter crowdfunding page… or, you know, just turn your record player off" i got some good lols.

And I have that one by Marcel Marceau, except it's a live recording.

no no, the sweetcell persona fully claims this position.  my use of the term "physical media" might put the reader on the wrong trail, so i changed it in the quote above. 

vinyl junkies claim that LPs "sound best", and they don't. they sound like vinyl, which has it's own sound - and that isn't what the artist heard when they made the music.  no one mixes & masters a record, the pressed a vinyl copy to do the final assessment.  when artists/producers/mixers/etc. say "this album is done, this is what i want to release to the world" it isn't filled with hiss, pops, wow, flutter, and all the other artifacts that come with vinyl.  you'll never convince me that vinyl is superior to a CD, because the CD is much much closer to what the artist heard in the studio.

analogy: you're free to believe that visiting an art gallery with green-tinged glasses is the best way of viewing art, and rock on, but i'd rather see the art as the artist intended - unfiltered.

As John Peel famously said vinyl like life has surface noise

and if you like a layer of surface noise over your music, awesome - vinyl is for you.  personally i prefer my music without it.  YMMV.


i'm pretty sure that most readers will find this post to be a boring rehash of a debate that died (or should have died) 20 years ago.  i can also confidently predict predict that vansmack currently has a sharp pain between C3 and C4 due to shaking his head back and forth so violently (or a he has a newly flat forehead).
