Amazon has great deals on used books from sellers that use the site.
I'm looking forward to Dave Mustaine's autobiography that's coming out... he's certainly been through a lot of shit.

I want that! Should I hold out for Amazon or just buy it from Bazillion? Actually I'd rather buy it from TG himself haha.

$40 from Bazillion Points includes shipping in the USA and they had the book out very quickly. It's a very high-quality pressing, hardcover, really cool matte cover, thick/quality paper stock. Quite nice and easily worth the dough, IMO. And that's not even going into the awesome content within.

Bazillion Points is the publisher, so that's probably about as close to getting it from Tom as you can do, unless you want to wait for a Triptykon tour.

Ha, Dave you really to go all out!

Very few local places left to buy music near where I work, but frequent visits to the two remaining shops outside of the city sometimes turn up goodies, good prices as well.

Found...
- AC/DC: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap [digipack] (more and more of these reissues turning up used, so been working on filling out the CDs for AC/DC... already have the vinyls)
- Love And Rockets: Love And Rockets/Swing! [2-disc reissue]
- Angel Witch: Angel Witch [2005 expanded reissue]
- Monster Magnet: 25... Tab

Also, in the mail...
- Triptykon: Eparistera Daimones [gatefold vinyl... wow!]

There's only an FYE left at the mall, which is only good for killing time when the girlfriend is shoe and clothes shopping. Once in a while they'll have a cool used item. Record & Tape Traders(awesome store)closed up a year ago and Music For a Song, who bought out R&TT, closed their doors last year. All my shopping is done online, which is fine I guess, since you don't waste and you don't get upset when from driving all the way to the store on release day only to find out they didn't order what you wanted. I do miss just flipping through browsers on discs in hopes of finding something cool that I wasn't even looking for. I need to hit a record convention one weekend... good excuse for a road trip.

Yeah, I am resigning myself more and more to online purchasing, but definitly prefer the physical act of searching through racks and mustly old shops. When I shop online I am typically going after something specific and rarely match the deals I find on used releases in local shops. There's always that feeling of excitment when you stumble on something amazing too, which can't be matched w/online shopping. Alas, I suspect it's only a matter of time before all puchases will be made online...

Hey Dave, check out Record Shows Of America (and Canada) for a pretty extensive listing of record shows around North America. They are happening all the time and this site is a pretty good resource, despite the cheesy site design, haha.

Record shows are easily the best experience for me in terms of physically purchasing LPs and sometimes CDs. They vary widely from show to show, but man, if ever I am going to stumble on something insane, it will be at one of these shows.

This link is great, X-D!!!!
I might plan on hitting the Sunday Sept show in Hunt Valley MD, since that looks like the closest one. I'll have to check how far the PA shows from me since they happen a lot. Living where I am sucks as far as venues, live music, places to buy music... but I love it for so many other reasons.

Clicking through THE END or AMAZON's online list of assorted artists is certainly not the same as thumbing through physical stacks of vinyl or cds. It's like messaging someone instead of talking over dinner.

Well I was about to order from them but the the Amazon site said it was available, for 13 bucks less, and I am strapped for cash and shit haha. Of course I have to wait a little longer, but I had to go cheaper...

Ah, I am hearing that man. Either way, it's worth the money and/or the wait. Just about finished reading mine and am finding it a thoroughly enjoyable read. I wish there were more books out there like this.

Hey, a couple more CDs in the mail today, Whoohoo!

- Hobbs Angel Of Death: s/t (good to finally own this thrashtastic realease!)

- Mekong Delta: Lurking Fear (another step towards rounding these all up)

Ah, I finished reading I AM OZZY a couple of weeks ago and couldn't agree more with you, Schroeder. It's a great read, sometimes during the book I had the impression that the Madman himself was in front of me telling his war stories. Hehehe.

"Forty-five moments of perfection translated through a cautionary escape into the perils of the mundane, the inherent entropy in ultimate order, and the potential threats of eternal, unchecked apathy in civilization; all cloaked in musical expression so thoughtful, creative and forward thinking that almost a quarter-century later, few can even comprehend it, much less match it."

I've been on a huge Rolling Stones kick lately. Reading 'Rolling with the Stones' by Bill Wyman. Beautiful book with huge photos and cool layout. Pick it up if you ever get the chance.

Rolling Stones: Beggar's Banquet

Immolation: Majesty and Decay

Great review on the latter here: http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/showreview.aspx?reviewID=1935

They are so far above and beyond in the world of talent/creativity compared to most DM bands its frightening.

I'll have to check out the Ozzy book and the Immolation.

One of my favorite Seattle shops reopened recently and I found myself near enough to take a peek on my lunchbreak. Walked away with the following goodies.

- Amon Duul II: Tanz Der Lemminge [SPC/Revisited Rec digipack resissue, nice!]
- Melvins: Chicken Switch [remixes... total noise, but I had to have it for the Melvins collection, of which I have been maintaining since the release of Gluey Porch Treatments]
- Spirit Caravan: Elusive Truth [$5.00, so I could not in good conscience pass this by]

I would have likeed to dig some more, but the parking meter was running... that, and I really should have been working, haha.

EDIT: One more in the mailbox when I got home...

- Theory In Practice: Third Eye Function [reissue]

[QUOTE]AND ANOTHER LINK

Long term Pink Dots' friend Eric Lanzilotta of Anomalous Records has opened an excellent new music shop in Seattle. Music lovers should check this out ....Here is a description in Eric's own words...


Dissonant Plane is a record store selling experimental, avant garde classical, psychedelic rock, drone, electroacoustic, free improv, noise, weird soundtracks, out rock, ambient, free jazz, metal (black, death, heavy, speed, power, thrash, symphonic, doom, gothic, experimental, grindcore, industrial, brutal death, viking, folk, noodlecore, avante, patriotic, electronic, shred, progressive, "deathphonic", dark, satanic, religious, hateful,...) vinyl, compact discs, videos, books, and tapes.


5459 Leary Ave. NW

Seattle, WA 98107
http://www.dissonantplane.com/



I would love to visit, if I lived anywhere close to that place.
[/QUOTE]

Whoa-ha! This is new to me as I have been lamenting the loss of many shops here in Seattle over the last few years, especially the ones with character. This place looks fantastic! I'll post a review once I've had a chance to visit. I'm fairly OCD when it comes to music, so it probably won't be long, haha.

Ah, let's see... Hit a local shop on my lunchbreak and found a few goodies.

- Can: Delay 1968 [remastered edition] (very nice!)

- Razor: Evil Invaders (Wow! Razor CDs are NOT common among Seattle record stores, so finding this was a surprise)

- Hellhammer: Apocalyptic Raids [1999 reissue CD w/original artwork] (I have the original U.S. vinyl edition of this, but always had the "1990 A.D." version of the CD, which has the different artwork that I didn't like as much, so good to have the original art for my CD)

Man, talk about paradise. I didn't think anything like this existed anymore...definitely doesn't anywhere close to my location. I have to go to the local Barnes & Noble to look at cd's.

Some more mailorder madness, all CDs.

- Mekong Delta: The Music Of Erich Zann
- Mekong Delta: Principle Of Doubt
- Mekong Delta: Dances Of Death
- Sacred Reich: Ignorance/Surf Nicaragua [2007 Metal Blade Europe reissue w/bonus tracks and DVD. Great package!]

Why the Sacred Reich was not reissued in North America is beyond me?! WTF!? Fortunately Relapse was carrying it for a good price.

I'm blaming Hex for the Mekong Delta obsession. I had passed on them back in the 80s because I wasn't into the higher end vocals (Tom G. and Snake ala Rrroooaaarrr were more my style), but gave them another listen because of a rip (and recomendation) I got from Hex some years ago... the seed was planted and I cannot get enough of these guys now, haha.
