    Blink-182 Vinyl Thread

    i understand the points being made when speaking about digitally recorded albums being pressed on vinyl. but i don't buy them for the purpose of "collecting." as i mentioned before, this is all personal preference for listening. i like to compare this to film a lot because it's the industry i work in and understand the most. there are a lot of films that are captured digitally that often get recorded out on to film when they're complete. usually, it's for archival reasons; however, many filmmakers do it so their work can be projected on film in theaters for limited screenings. this happened with Netflix's 'Roma.' but just because it was filmed digitally, confined by various means of compression, does not mean they aren't achieving a certain aesthetic when doing the film-out. they're getting grain that wasn't there before and an overall more "dreamlike" quality that accompanies the film projection. i'd like to think something similar is achieved with vinyl. it usually sounds deeper and occasionally you get some dust pops that add some sort of character to the experience. like i said, all of these things have to be treated a certain way according the format in which it is being delivered. as long as someone is paying for these things to be done properly, i do believe something is being gained for those who prefer the format.

    Blink-182 Vinyl Thread

    music can be mastered for any format just like movies can be finished for theatrical projection or home viewing on a tv. it doesn't matter what year it was made or what the norm was. in the grand scheme of things, it's all subjective. i'd say there are equally good arguments for both sides. so, it comes down to preference.

    my original BCR sounds pretty good. not amazing but not as bad as the +44 one, which has to be the worst sounding record i own. does anyone know how the SRC pressing of we don't need to whisper sounds?

    i'll get it because the original sounds like trash. i hate SRC though. $30+ LPs that never ship on time

    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    both scenarios make sense but i do know that macbeth was pretty massive in south east asia. they had stand alone stores in malls there and the brand was big with action sports athletes/musicians

    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    random: whatever happened to macbeth shoes? i know tom sold it off at some point but i thought they were still going. it's been super long since i've owned any but i liked the pair of wallisters i had. when i tried searching for the brand, pretty much nothing comes up.

    oddly a fucking great song. how embarrassing that mark made a trash song better but can't even make blink sound good anymore. i'd be willing to bet the chorus was a scrapped +44 idea that he couldn't come up with verses for.

    i agree with what the italian instagram account has posted and i wish the band would be less sensitive to posts like that; however, i also get why mark blocked the account now haha. its all about how you phrase what you say. we can talk all the shit we want on these message boards but when making a public post on a fan based social media account, you have to be a bit more formal in getting those messages across.

    Alkaline Trio

    just saw them at metro last night. they're doing four nights there. unfortunately, they played the same exact set i saw them do last summer. still a good time, though. i hope people going all four nights get different songs.
