  1. wow that's a shame. As a bedroom DJ for almost 20yrs I've bought my fair share of vinyl from Polyester in the past, but admittedly not for a long time. I don't buy into the whole 'vinyl has peaked', 'people are streaming' reasoning though. I think Polyester is just another victim of the changing shopping habits of consumers. Online in king and Bricks and Mortar stores are doomed across the board.
  2. I was given a Bose Revolve+ portable speaker for Christmas and reckon it's not too bad at all for what it is. I've listened to several of their portable speakers over the years and don't have much bad to say about them. Mum dropped a pretty penny on a Wave Radio/CD player almost 20yrs ago. It's still used daily and perfect for her needs. The selling point at the time was that it had much better AM radio reception than most other options at the time.
  3. I used an old broken turntable to display a picture disc on the wall (see my avatar). Very cheap, easy and looks great IMO. The disc is held on with tight fitting 45 adapter. The disc got a little dusty, but otherwise fine. Otherwise just frame it up in whatever picutre frame takes your fancy. I'd go for something large enough to fit the cover and the disc...like this.
  4. I leave my DD running between changes, but that's a carry over from DJ'ing habits. I find it easier to centre the record and find the shaft when the platter is spinning.
  5. I watched EP IIX last night to jog my memory because I hadn't seen it since midnight screening on it's release day. This will be the only one of all 9 I haven't seen at the midnight screening, except for rogue one and solo, but they don't count. A shame to end the long standing tradition but looking forward to not dozing off in the middle of it
  6. Strangely quiet here considering todays release. I'm off to see it tonight.
  7. Considering how much I spent on 1:10 elec I hate to think what the big boys would have set you back. Was good fun though, sunday morning hangovers and all.
  8. Only a couple of suburbs over! I'll shoot you a PM at some stage, probably in the new year once the xmas madness subsides. Your cars, or were you just the sponsor? if you were racing circa 2005 our paths may have crossed.
  9. Bargain. it certainly wasn’t that cheap a while ago when I looked. Must be a special as you said.
  10. Yeah you’re right to doubt cos it turns out I had my details mixed up a bit. the movies were Toy story 4 and LEGO movie 2. Both $8.80 and $11.40. respectively for the discs. $25 on iTunes, but HD, not SD like I thought. The $5 movie I bought was wizard of oz which iTunes has for $10. so exaggerated but point remains.
  11. holy cow. It's a nice piece of furniture but that's way too much and that DJ station has to be even more. The controller + turntable setup just seems strange to me in general but I guess there's people out there using it.
  12. I must be the only person around still buying DVD's, let alone BDs. That's only because my car has a DVD player and screen in the roof for the kiddies. The head unit does have a HDMI input, but due to some DRM nonsense it can only play that source to the front screen :( DVD/BD Players will still be around while the discs cost less than 'owning' a downloaded copy. I paid around $5 a pop for 2019 release DVD's, while apple wants $25+ for SD versions of the same. crazy.
  13. Agreed, a great review. I'm just generally amazed by people who can walk out of a gig and remember the set list. I'd need to be taking notes. Tribute bands are a weird one aren't they. I'd say they're not my thing either, but I've never failed to be entertained when I have seen them, despite my general scepticism. in 2007 I saw the Australian Pink Floyd show at the 'Rock Werchter' music festival in Belgium. and they were amazing to say the least. Apparently the only cover band the festival has ever deemed worthy of booking so I expected a lot and was not disappointed. A week later I saw Guns & Roses at another festival. I put them in the cover band basket at the time because only the lead singer was original. I spent 3 or 4 few tracks grumbling about the missing members, but once I'd calmed down I was in awe of their replacements and had a great time. The most recent was actually at Lizottes in newcastle ~3yrs ago when I saw Doug Parkinson do a show honouring Joe Cocker. Not really a tribute act in the true sense I guess. A great show and a fantastic venue for it.
  14. I don't think that's correct. The TV broadcast was 2 songs short apparently (Something in the way & Oh me), but all CD, DVD, Vinyl releases to date had the full concert I believe They would have just split over 3 sides to improve the sound quality. Album is 54min long so ~25min+ a side isn't ideal for LP's
