Re: Mr. Soul/Bluebird/Merry Go Round/Uno Mundo Mixes

One interesting observation - I just pulled out a Columbia 45 which I assume is styrene, but the groove area is far more mirror-like than any of my Monarch styrene pressings, and the 440 doesn't seem to hurt it.

Re: Mr. Soul/Bluebird/Merry Go Round/Uno Mundo Mixes

PS this description of styrene vs. vinyl is very poor: See the differences in the picture? They're pretty obvious alright. The vinyl 45 has a shinier surface, and the label is pressed on together with the vinyl mold by the pressing plant. The styrene 45's surface looks more "dull" compare...

Re:

One other thing, the edge of a styrene 45 is squared off, while the edge of of a vinyl 45 comes to an actual edge, if that makes sense. Hmm...I'll have to check again, but it seems like most/all of my singles have the "square" edges, vs a ridge. As the dead wax seems fairly quiet on some ...

No, nor has that been the case in the past. The Left has created this massive corrupt...

Re: longer phone wire, or longer Ethernet cables

Ethernet. Assuming there are no blatant problems, Ethernet is good for 100m. No reason to worry about extra cable length. As for the phone/DSL, it depends on your speed and connection health. If you already have a solid signal and good wiring, a few more feet won't hurt. If your connection is border...

Re: What the fuck is wrong with Wisconsin?

Well, lots of empty fields stand with Scott Walker. Beyond that...lots of spin about all of the money saved and how the budget is now balanced. Except it isn't. I honestly haven't looked into it, but a few people have indicated that there's currently a *larger* debt than there was a few years ago.

Hmm. Is Wikipedia Politically Biased? "To summarize, the average old political article in Wikipedia leans Democratic. Gradually, Wikipedia’s articles have lost that disproportionate use of Democratic phrases, moving to nearly equivalent use of words from both parties, akin to an NPOV [neutral p...

On one hand, I'd say it seems unlikely considering the new SACD, but then again...see my previous post.

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

I think I'll hold out and see if they put out a Sell Out 2-CD set with the DE track list (which I believe had a semi-unique [in terms of packaging] Japanese issue). Remastered you mean? I'm quite honestly amazed at how often this stuff is getting remastered. This is the third iteration of My Genera...

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

Re: Quad, I recently spent about what they're charging for the new SACD on a copy of the MFSL, so I'm not inclined to buy it again unless the sonics are somewhat revelatory (which is not likely). Yeah, I don't think any iteration of the original mix will be revelatory. I may pick it up, but I'm not...
