Melvins Discussion / Re: The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale
« on: January 11, 2018, 07:54:17 PM »
So I thought I’d drop in for a little update for everyone that is waiting for the wood box.

Some of you may know, some may not, that I hit my head back on Aug 30th.  I received a severe concussion.  Severe enough that I have not been back to work since. Severe enough that it actually changed the vision in my right eye and I now have to wear glasses for reading. Before that, I had perfect vision.  I’ve been attending three hours of therapy per week, on top of visits to neurologists, concussion specialists, and optometrists that specialize in concussion related vision changes. I still have a little double vision. Though it is improving, I still have difficulty remembering words, and how to get to places that I’ve been going to for the last ten years. I’ve been in a very slowly clearing fog for the last 4 1/2 months. Unfortunately, that has meant a delay in getting the boxes out as I am the one responsible for getting the last bits of interviews and live footage edited down for the 3rd disc of content that goes with the box. This is on my shoulders, not Bobs.  If you need to vent about it, vent to me about it. I understand being eager to get  something you’ve paid for. We're eager to get them done and shipped.  I just ask that you stay patient while I work through this concussion. I’ve been slowly getting back to editing on small pieces here and there, and I’m doing a little more each day. 

PS, I have not read through the last few months of comments that I have missed out on. If I didn’t answer anyones specific question, I apologize.  I’ll take a closer look later.

Those of us waiting on the box version all have access to the streaming version of the movie. I think we can all handle waiting for the package and bonus material considering the situation. I just hope you keep getting better and feeling better.

I know Idlehanz has been dealing with a gnarly concussion that he suffered a few months back. I know he will get this completed as soon as he is able.

I am willing to bet there will be no more Crystal Fairy. Omar bailing on that tour last minute would certainly let Buzz know that he cannot be counted on. Buzz ain't fucking around with that shit post-Kevin.

I think you'll find Omar got a better offer for the same time period (ATD-I tour w/ Le Butcherettes supporting).

Yeah, he certainly had a better offer with ATD. But I doubt Buzz would care what the reason was more than he would care that it fucked with his plans. I would love to see more Crystal Fairy - I loved loved loved that album.

I want MORE Redd Kross in my Melvins! Bring Jeff McDonald into the fold and all will be complete!

That would be awesome. Wishful thinking but I'd love to see another album with Pinkus but with Gibby Haynes throwing down the goods on a few tracks.

That would be stellar.

I hope they come to Fresno again!!! Being able to see the band after three years of endlessly reading and listening to anything that had their name on it is easily in my top ten life experiences.

The funniest part about the whole experience is that my dad told me about how you can usually meet the band behind the venue before the show, and even though I thought the idea was a little weird at the time, I decided I'd go through with it, because it may be my only chance! We drove around a bit and checked behind the venue here and there, but had no luck. I was sort of bummed, but I didn't have high expectations, so I decided that me and my dad should just check out the nearby record shops or grab a bite to eat before we got in line. As we drove away, out of the corner of my eye I saw the unmistakable hair of the man himself, Buzzo, walking into a Mexican restaurant about five or six buildings down from the venue. Out of shock and excitement I uttered the most butchered sounding "Oh my gosh!" you'd ever heard. My dad asked if I wanted to go and meet them but I felt like I might bother them if I were to intrude on their meal. My dad told me they would probably be waiting for their food by the time we pulled over and got in there and it would be no trouble, so I had no choice but to agree. I walked into the restaurant, which was small and empty, so it was me, my dad, Buzz, Dale and Steve. I asked my dad what I should say and he said "just go for it!" I got nervous and did probably the worst thing I could do in that moment, I said "Hey... Buzz!" He turned around, clearly confused as to where the mysterious voice was coming from, but as soon as he turned around, he greeted me with a warm smile and stuck his hand out. I told him I was a big fan and he asked if I was coming to see the show that night. I said yes and thanked him for all the great music. I was so nervous at that point that I just ended the conversation there and didn't even get a chance to speak to Dale, the man who inspired me to pull out my fathers dusty old drum set and go to town. We walked out of the restaurant and checked out a few record shops, then I met up with my buddies and waited in line while my dad had a few drinks in the bar one building over. It was a great show despite an obviously drunk woman getting pulled out of the venue right next to me, and some idiot running up on stage and tripping over Steve's mic. I was right up front and directly below Buzz. To give an idea of how close I was, I felt the sweat from his hand hit my face a few times.

Great story - one of the great things about the Melvins is that each and every Melvin is a genuinely nice person. I remember when I was a kid, maybe age 14 in maybe 1987? I was at the Tacoma Mall in Tacoma Washington with my Dad doing some shopping. Low and behold, the Melvins must have stopped on their way from Montesano to Seattle to get something to eat, kill time, shop or just fuck around. But there they were walking in the other direction in the mall, Buzz, Matt and Dale. I kind of freaked out to my Dad about it. I think he thought it was funny - he told me that they don't look like rock stars. He had no idea that they were to me!

Melvins Discussion / Re: Mark Deutrom The Silent Treatment Vinyl release
« on: December 13, 2017, 09:21:45 PM »
Season of mist is releasing the silent treatment from mark d on viny for the first time. Surprised this album isn’t more known, or at least I don’t see it mentioned very often. It’s a pretty killer album. Some of it sounds like it could have been on stoner witch. There’s a blue vinyl version limited to 100.

I love this album! Wooo hooo!

My guess is this year we will see Melvins and Redd Kross team up for an album together.

Got an email notification that it’s sitting on my front porch.  Won’t be able to get to it for another few hours.  I know heat isn’t good for vinyl but how about cold?

It will be fine, just put it in the oven at 425 degrees for 20 minutes before playing.

Wait...don't do that.
I just ended up microwaving it for 45 seconds and took it outside and played frisbee with the dog.  It plays perfect now!

I bet it sounds like my old 1987 copy (that I was too stupid to take care of as a kid) now! Enjoy!

Melvins Discussion / Re: 2016 Tour Merch
« on: December 01, 2017, 04:00:48 PM »
I don't know if anyone can give me any information about this piece of merchandise from last year, but I have a haze XXL poster from the the new years eve show last year at pappy and Harriets. But it's not signed or numbered. My sister also bought one the same day and hers is signed numbered. Im finally getting around to framing both the Halloween and new years eve poster from haze XXL in the same frame and noticed this minor discrepancy. It's not a big deal just wondering if thats normal? The Halloween poster is signed and numbered aswell.

My NYE poster is not signed either. There were a few sold before Haze arrived at Pappy and Harriets to start signing them.

Like that interview with Joe B!  Never heard the official story of the dog noises at the beginning of Sweet Willy Rollbar.

Yeah, that was an awesome interview!  I love how he described making physical devices rather than using traditional audio effects (that everyone else was using).

Stag and Stoner Witch have the best production ever

Creative peak in my opinion.

sure, Mark D had a lot to do with that

Exactly. Mark knows music.
