Inspired by Fabio, I purchased a Luc Ferrari recording this weekend.

Fabio is responsible for so much spending over here... poverty-stricken now, but very happy ears & brain.

I often go through CDs and say "that was a Fabio, that was a Bryce, that was a Coulter...", plus all my local DJ heroes as well. My wife actually told me yesterday to not buy one more CD ever.

@DCE: My wife has put a moratorium on me buy records, cds, cassettes etc..., although that's lifted if I get them at a show.

buying (for the last 5 years)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 4:24pm Andrew Waterloo:

I am trying real hard to stop buying for awhile.. but they just keep pulling me back in.

Meetings during Fabio should be punishable by big owies.

I'm buying a new shelf so I can buy more records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 4:31pm steve:

i stopped buying records maybe two months ago, but only because i replaced that with putting a few bucks into my own art projects. its worked out pretty well so far.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 4:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I won't run out of shelf-space for another 200 or so LPs. So there's my mountain to climb... because IT'S THERE...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 4:34pm Cheri Pi:

I've already run out of space for a shelf. Need to figger that out first. Maybe install more walls?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 4:37pm common:

more walls!

Floors are for suckers. I live in a maze now.

DOWN WITH FLOORS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 4:44pm Mike East:

I gotta get some shelving...all my LP's are currently stored in boxes. Just added two more to the collection last weekend. Ours is a relatively healthy addiction, I think.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 4:44pm the glowing one:

hey, we missed the bus! OH NOOOO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 4:47pm steve:

as far as addictions go, record collecting is probably one of the more nourishing ones
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 4:49pm adrian in mpls:

after years and years of selling off the collection, i'm only just now at the point where i can financially feed the record buying habit again. which is exciting! i've missed it.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 4:55pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I sold off the entire LP collection in the '90s and built up a stupidly huge CD collection. Now that CDs are revealed to be the soul-stealers they truly are, have been working to get the LP collection back to its former glory.

.....so trade-credit for the CDs has helped. Despite the crummy trade value these days, even for imports I payed freakish amounts for, back then..
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 4:57pm the glowing one:

I would gladly buy old CDs for cheap in bulk, they had the best mastering quality plus the CD sound quality.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 4:58pm the glowing one:

plus I don't have a soul anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 4:58pm Cheri Pi:

I bought a lot of CD's when my TT was broken down. I truly regret not having LP versions, will one day replace them all, aftr I buy my cassette collection on vinyl. first things first

I'll have a medium mental shake and some o-rings, please

i think he pronounces it to rhyme with "manischevitz"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 5:03pm chris:

I remember listening to Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Welcome to the Thunderdome CD on headphones, back when CDs were new, thinking... well, there goes da rekkids... Mainly because my TT was crap, I think.. but yeah, the mastering quality was amazing to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 5:04pm Andrew Waterloo:

I've heard it pronounced like that too Yeti. I saw him in dual with Brotzmann and the Victo guy introduced them by pointing at the vibraphone and saying "Peter does not like this instrument, but he likes the way Jason plays it"
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:07pm the glowing one:

Welcome to the Pleasuredome was a pinnacle 80s production, but mainly thanks to Trevor Horn. the band was pretty much clueless at that time, and afterwards, too. hehe
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 5:07pm chris:

yup, agreed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 5:08pm Mike East:

I loved CDs, but so many of my were stolen or damaged over the years...I take much better care of the vinyl than the CD's. A single scratch on a CD can render it unlistenable. a similar scratch on a record can be worked around much easier, IMO
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:10pm the glowing one:

well, there's software to rip damaged CDs and even software to repair unprecise rips. not to mention the many perfect "backup copies" floating around on the web encoded with FLAC
  Thu. 10/2/14 5:11pm P-90:

@Fabio: "Roman Spring of Mrs.Stone"-- if you haven't sen it, you haven't really missed much.
p.s. Thanks for the Spermwich.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:12pm the glowing one:

it's pretty much the best medium to preserve the music legacy. there are thousands of copies of a record around the world and even though the medium itself isn't error proof, you can almost always compare your rip with someone elses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 5:14pm Andrew Waterloo:

@Mike East, I've always theorized that people felt vinyl was more robust simply because they took better care of it. People generally don't leave their records lying around out of the sleeves or in a pile of receipts, scrap paper, and other stuff.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:19pm the glowing one:

hm, I always thought of my vinyl records of a product with a limited life expectancy. technically it sounds worse after each playback and improper handling. that kind of made the music more important and handling the actual medium almost completely irrelevant.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:20pm the glowing one:

the best music I bought on vinyl was from the flea market.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:24pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

For me, the ritual of dealing with vinyl makes the whole experience more significant. The pain of careful handling & flipping sides requires that one pay attention... I find the "set it & forget it" luxury of CDs to be bloodless & devoid of guts. .... which is unfortunate 'cuz it's a convenient medium for home-based noisemakers...
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:25pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

...and ooh, this here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 5:26pm chris:

Fabio, your show is so droning wonderful today. Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 5:26pm Mike East:

exactly my thought, Andrew...I used to throw CD's around, store them on the old CDR spindles. Plus taking them in the car takes a toll...
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:26pm the glowing one:

sounds like copy and paste.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 5:26pm steve:

i gave almost all my cds to fmu a few months ago. ive been doing just vinyl and files for so long, figured i might as well. seeing SW and BT light up confirmed it was the right decision.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 5:27pm Andrew Waterloo:

There is something to be said about shuffle on a huge playlist, or being able to queue up an endless list of CDs while you're doing something in the background. I find with records I am more likely to listen to something several times, especially a particular side of a record.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:27pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Teeth of the Sea: pre-clickie'd. But of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 5:27pm Cecile:

teeth of the sea? better than gums of the sun.

Will nobody pledge something to the mighty Fabio? His woof-moo widget needs to be activated with one pledge.

Hey Fabio , Where do you find all the jams I've played for 20 year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 5:37pm northguineahills:

I would love too, but b/tn no employment, and my wife's green card and attorney fees, I have nothing.
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:39pm the glowing one:

I'll pledge. I'll promise. I'll do it... later. just imagine my imaginary future pledge adds a few % to the bar.

The Scott W/Fabio crossover was a great one as well.
  Thu. 10/2/14 5:45pm Lothair:

Gee, if you're going to play songs that I like I'm going to feel obligated to pledge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 5:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- man - I got to where I'm trying to store everything on external hardrives - preferably 'lossless' mp4s over 3s
- altho' you FMU types have convinced me Vinyl is kinda the Real Thing (Digital is clearer & programmable, but Analog not dependent on yer Sampling Rate)
- but because Analog wears out every time it's used - I just wanna convert it to Digital to Store & Program & Listen to it on Mac or iPod (*already* retreating into obsolescence)...
...Is a Nico song written by Jackson Browne the middle ground twixt Fabio & Clay - ??
...I get paid in a week btw...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 5:45pm Cecile:

Lothair, they're sneaky like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 5:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the Archival Collectibility of the Artifact (rekkid, CD) is of course another Thang...
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 5:51pm the glowing one:

Lothair, you have it backwards. FMU DJs only accept Payola™. you have to SEND them the songs you like and put some extra cash into the record sleeve. all for the good cause, of course. then "maybe" they'll play them.
