These are really cool. I love the design and packaging. I doubt I will ever get to see one up close.
Maybe someone who got one will develop a meth habit and put it up on eBay for $20.

Yeah, I really hope that doesn’t happen either....


Missed it by a few minutes, even with a nice tip from a fellow board member.
I think it sold out while I was renewing my JN membership...
when you renew your membership, do they make you wait a day, or can you buy right away?

It looked like right away, but I didn't end up buying since it was sold out.

Hehe, no scolding intended, although this discussion has made me think a lot about artists vs venues...

Its been weird trying to determine how to handle all of this...the wife and I would have been in London next week (would have been my first trip to Europe) for some music festivals had this not all gone down and its been really strange figuring out what to do with each of these events.   Ultimately, I guess our focus should be on helping the artists make it through this, perhaps the venues should be a secondary thought?

I honestly do think everyone needs to make this decision for themselves, and there are no correct answers.
Was that sufficiently passive-aggressive?  :lol:

Hi there! In theory, I kind of agree with this, but if there's one thing this whole pandemic seems to be underlining, it's that our entire post-industrialized way of doing things is in serious need of a reset. It is kind of scary how this virus affects literally everyone on the entire planet, but I can't help but fall back on the flight emergency oxygen mask analogy. The basic protocol being that you have to take care of yourself before you're going to be able to help anyone else.

I get it, though. I'm a former independent booker, and one of the most important lessons I learned many years ago, is that *if* you can afford to take a hit, then maybe you don't try to sue the small struggling indie club that couldn't pay the band what was agreed on, because they just couldn't get enough people in the door. I've also handed bands money out of my own wallet in situations like that, to make sure they could eat and put gas in their van, and hopefully do better in the next town. I've also worked in clubs where major acts cancelled a tour, and we chose to refund tickets, because frankly, if we were going to go under, we were *not* going to take everyone else's money with us.

It does seem like a good idea to be aware of the needs of other people, but sometimes you're just not going to be able to save the world. There are a *lot* of people in different sectors that are being affected: businesses, homeowners, renters, etc, and I can't help but feel that it's about time the 1% (for want of a better term) should step up and do their part to help keep things working by forgiving debt at some level for anyone whose financial situation has been seriously impacted. Meanwhile, the rest of us have to seriously think about how we can re-invent how we do things, because it's painfully obvious (to me, at least) that the old existing model has been broken for a long time.

Sorry to have apparently derailed this, I'm not trying to preach or pick a fight here, but this is all stuff I've been thinking about for a while now, and this current situation just kind of brings it home, I think.

Oh man, I'm right there with you.
We are in dire need of a complete rehaul of our systems...I could go on for days and days on that topic.

As far as ticket refunds and venues, people can only decide whats best for themselves, and I totally understand people have different obligations on this front, so do whatever you have to do to make ends meet, without, like you said, taking everyone down with you.

I understand why refunds aren't being offered right off the bat...these businesses are likely to go under with no music.
Its literally, do we want to be able to stay in business to offer future shows?

Sure, not everybody can afford to let the venue hold on to their hard earned dollars, until a future unspecified show...and I'm glad you were able to get your money back (as you should).

...but on the other hand there may not be future shows at these venues unless they are able to hold on to at least a portion of the funds they had in their hands for shows that couldn't take place.

Congrats on the find 45!  I also got quite lucky on getting ahold of a copy...

A couple of years back on my birthday, my wife surprised me with a sealed copy of Deep Six on vinyl :shock:
I asked her how the hell she got a hold of it, and somehow she had been looking at the Discogs page at just the right moment, when one of the original producers Chris Hanzsek happened to put up a sealed copy for sale. 

One of my most prized Melvins possessions!

Brutal! You guys are ultra quick on the trigger. I had it in my cart at exactly noon and by the time I checked out thirty seconds later it was gone! Brutal!

Sorry dude, I think its a luck of the draw kinda thing. 
Just made sure I was already logged in to both ShoxOp and PayPal prior to starting, just to prevent the login causing a long enough delay to miss the sale.

Now that no one has anything better to do on a Sunday morning makes it especially difficult...
