"please illucidate".


K, you're right. I'm very PC when it comes to this kind of stuff. I see autism as a culture or a group of people on a spectrum who have a different way of thinking, functioning and engaging in life.  To say a person IS autistic sounds offensive to me, but maybe I'm just being overly protective. I guess that is up to the individual. You are also welcome to PM me but I think we can shake hands and leave it at that  ;) I meant no offense by it. Back on topic.

I first tried using the search option but couldn't come up with anything other than auctions and trades from past times.

I'm trying to figure out how many of these babies were made. According to the Melvins Museum site, there were four different kinds, 100 of each :

(thanks to super conda for the link!)

But now I'm confused because one of my tags says 76/144. I have another tag around here somewhere that I need to dig around for.

What can you guys tell me? If you have a baby in the bag with the tag, can you tell me the 'style' and number on the packaging, please? I'd appreciate it if we could start a tally of some kind.

Thanks
JUDY

ellenbee, be sure to come back and tell us more about your melvins listening experiences! It would be incredibly awesome to be able to experience the higher end of the spectrum that allows a person to describe what he or she might be feeling during stimulating occurrences. In this instance, listening to melvins. It's a totally unexplainable 'high' for me at times, too, but I feel envious of what it is you might be describing.

I always like the saying "If you've met one autistic person then you've met one autistic person".

Very true. Just to be clear here, it is OK for a person to say he or she is on the spectrum, but it's not OK for someone else to say, "a person is autistic." That goes for any disability or special need.

Instead, it is more proper to say, "my daughter is a person with autism" rather than, "my daughter is autistic." No offense to you as a dad, just think about it for a second.

As far as 'sensory overload', I think he's more into the vibrations. Music (unlike movies) has to be very soft in sound. It's more about the feeling of the treble and bass (at low vibrancy/frequency) than the actual tunes that can be heard.

I have two daughters and my oldest is autistic. Not rocking in the corner oblivious to the world autistic but she's autistic enough. I don't know. Anyway I listen to music in the car all the time and a lot of the time it's the Melvins. I noticed about a week ago she was humming The Bunk Up...PERFECTLY. I was just kinda speechless. Her favorite kind of music tends to be hip hop because I think she likes the feel of the beats, but then again I have no idea because she doesn't say. It's interesting to me to think about all the senses that music effects on my daughter. One thing is for sure is that she LOVES music and has in the past done some other pretty cool music related things. I have a lot of instruments laying around for the kids to play with and sometimes she'll fuck around with them all. To my surprise, the drums seem to be her favorite and I can only imagine what kind of sensory shit is firing off when she's playing the drums.

I love that you bought her drums. That's so fricken cool.
I tried to get my brother into a couple of different instruments, he just wasn't into it.

My baby brother (6"4, 250lbs, will smash you) is what brohammer might call "rocking in the corner autistic."
His favorite is Pinocchio on VHS so he can watch it either on top volume or in fast forward.
He also likes Colossus of Destiny. 

Lividity is a good one to smooth the mind, for sure.

So overall I love this album. The songs and performances are awesome. The one thing that bothers me is the recording. The records are always missing the high end to me giving the listener a sort of muffled sound. It's been that way for a while too which is sort of sad. I think it bothers me more so with this album because it's my favorite record since HAT and I wish it sounded better. Give me back my high frequencies please.

(If you don't believe me listen to each of the songs below back to back at about 30 seconds in back and forth)





You know, I actually noticed this too but I just thought my hearing was bad. I find myself turning it up louder than usual to "hear" it all. It does have that dense kinda muffled sound. Although I can't really think of any other release that has the same muffled sound.

Same here. I lost my hearing after I got nudged in between dale and coady's drumkit in '09, I think.

$89.00 shipped. I have been waiting to get one for 100 or less and actually like this one more than other auctions i have lost recently. there is a button on the back and I pushed it, nothing happened.

Cool, thanks! I appreciate it! I'm expecting another pretty soon here. Four heads are better than two  :D
I'll post pics and let you know if it squeaks, cries, or pees or whatever.

I streamed a digi late last night with ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES on mute in the background.

Too soon for a review or rating but I will say I had to pause it more than a few times just to absorb everything I was taking in. It was glorious.
