  1. I do love that album (and it's cover).
  2. As the current multiverse arc seems to be falling flat on its face, I’m glad She-Hulk is doing it’s own thing.
  3. Not getting the drop off in this episode that other people are getting, still on a par with the other episodes for me. I'd be happy if they'd binned the whole of the MCU after Endgame and just went straight into this instead.
  4. I think that’s happening with a lot of popular older titles now. I can’t seem to find any Barry White out in the wild in records shops, and his albums used to be everywhere.
  5. I hope they don't follow Miller's edgy misogynistic crap too closely for the series. From the wikipedia synopsis-
  6. I think Prey, Top Gun: Maverick and Everything Everywhere all at Once have really shown Marvel up this year. Thor 4 is a steaming turd.
  7. Fave albums so far this year? Feels like there's been a ton of good stuff, with more that I haven't listened to, or is yet to be released. So far- SAULT - Air Anteloper - Pink Dolphins Beyonce - Renaissance Soil & "Pimp" Sessions - Lost in Tokyo Doomcannon - Renaissance (no relation) KOKOROKO - Could We Be More Binker & Moses - Feeding the Machine Ryo Kawasaki - Juice (re-issue) Danger Mouse & Black Thought - Cheat Codes Shabaka - Afrikan Culture
  8. I've been listening to it a lot lately, loving it. The Michael Kiwanuka track reminded me of Broken Bells, of which I'd completely missed they have a new album out next month.

    Great CD Revival

    I do come across hip-hop (and R&B) CD's every now and again, but, yep, quite rarely. Over the last year from my local Oxfam I've picked up Beastie Boys- Paul's Boutique and The In Sound From Way Out, A Tribe Called Quest - Love Movement and We Got It From Here and Erykah Badu - Worldwide Underground. Randomly got Janelle Monae - Archandroid from there today. It's usually 90s indie and boomer pop/rock in there.
  10. I, of course, couldn’t resist a portable, a Sony MZ-N510. ATRAC S, Net MD and runs off a single AA (without a caddy). Really nice little machine. Brought some Moondrop Chu’s to use with it, and they are some amazing IEMs for just £20
  11. That Radio Shack tape eraser is something else. Also, some commentary on the price of tapes on eBay. https://youtu.be/2_Gh4Fu7_G8
  12. New? Take it back for a refund? There's plenty of used stuff out there that will sound better than that.
  13. Anyone watching La Vuelta? Envelope riding away from Rog and the rest of the Peleton was quite impressive, and I’m not sure I can take much more of sad Fred Wright. Hopefully his day will come!

    The Jazz Thread

    Sad news, Jaimie Branch has passed away. https://www.instagram.com/p/ChniO0nPAFO/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY%3D Proper huge talent taken too early.

    I don't mind a Herbie vocoder vocal, when done right. "I Thought It Was You" is a banger, for instance.

    Great CD Revival

    I guess it depends? Do you have a surround set-up, can hear the difference between 2ch CD and SACD, or just want to collect another format? I think it also does DVD-Audio, so that's another format to consider too.

    Probably not exactly this, but something like this you can put on a Kallax shelf? https://www.hhv.de/shop/en/item/record-box-vinyl-record-storage-7-schallplatten-aufbewahrung-100-white-568261

    I think we're reached peak vinyl. Prices are only going up- record companies are charging premium prices for new vinyl as manufacturing capacity is limited, and collectors are buying up all the used vinyl when there's only a limited amount of that available. I've been selling some stuff on Discogs recently, including some £50-100 records, that I've priced to sell rather than sit there for months at inflated prices. Interestingly, the people buying them seem to be Discogs dealers that then re-list them for inflated prices. I do wonder how much of Discogs is dealers selling record back and forth to each other. I buy a lot more CDs now. I get the same buzz out of crate digging for CDs now as I did for vinyl in the 90-00s, and for the most part, it's super cheap.
  20. If you're not interested in physical media, and happy to stream, then minidisc isn't going to do anything for you. However, I like physical media, and the act of making a mix disc rather than just re-arranging tracks on a streaming play list. I also prefer physical media to the extent that'll burn a minidisc of a stream (of albums I can't obtain a CD/LP of), and play the minidisc rather than the stream. PS- Vinyl isn't 'warmer'.

    I would expect that to come down in price closer to release. But stil, the wildly increasing vinyl prices do seem like the record companies are trying to milk every last drop from the end of the vinyl revival.
  22. Isn't Ezra Miller on the run from law enforcement at the moment?
