I can't help but wonder about the legalities of selling human blood products over the internet.

I also wonder how the blood has been treated to keep it from coagulating and degrading. I'd hate to pay $2500 and have it separate, clot, etc.

Seriously, I am creeped out as fuck by this whole thing, but it's kind of awesome at the same time.

I hope you aren't calling Wayne Coyne a liar. You wouldn't wanna be doing that! Besides, if you go back through his tweets there's probably video of him extracting blood and then injecting it into the record.

Anyway...



Again, my heartfelt thanks to imps for doing this. Buying a record for someone he'd never met and sending it to Australia.

The packaging is beautiful, it's got a nice back cover and lyrics and a free download and a 23-minute bonus track on side three (bit odd!).

The records aren't perfectly flat I noticed though, will that affect playback? Just don't want to damage them, they sort of bob up and down as they spin, if anyone knows what I'm saying.

I think I've got a really shit player though... the speakers suck. I'll see if they can be hooked up to the ones in my room. If not can anyone recommend a good, kinda cheap one that'll sound good?

I've just about settled on a Shure M97xE cartridge and an Audio-Technica AT-HS1 headshell, but I would definitely be interested in opinions. I looked at some Grado's but they were a lot more expensive for the high quality ones.
I believe the Ortofon 2MM Red offers a really good option at a reasonable price. Im planning one myself. Either that or the Ortofon OM5E

I've already ordered the Shure, but thanks for responding. I'll consider that if the Shure doesn't improve the sound like I'm expecting it to.

Picked up Bloom after work last night, but having to wait until later to listen.

While I was there I found vinyls for Achtung Baby and Zooropa. Any excitement I had evaporated once I realised they were on coloured vinyl, unofficial and sounded like shit

Exploring the world of Ol' Whiskey tonight and I came across a clearly mislabeled Don't Fall In Love With Everyone You See for $5.99 new (THE OKK! albums collection now complete) and a couple copies of the RSD "Losing My Edge" 12" in the understock. Snagged one for me and one for my buddy who struck out on it in New York.

There was also a copy of Heady Fwends knocking about. Wish I'd remembered if anyone here needed it. You could probably call Waterloo and do mail order if so.

Just stumbled across as used Waits treasure trove. Got great copies of Heartattack and Blue Valentine. Shame both copies of Nighthawks were beat to shit.

Ass. Hole.

I'm pretty tempted to buy WTT on vinyl but it won't come too cheap by the looks of things.

I would need some crack pretty badly for me to sell back a MBDTF vinyl.

Since my last post, I picked up Simon And Garfunkel: Bridge Over Troubled Water (plays excellent), cost me £1. I also picked up Robert Plant & Allison Krauss: Raising Sand (NEW) for £13 and finally, Big Country: The Crossing (Mint) for £3.
Hoping to add a couple more alums this week
