I have started collecting again and I hope to frame up some of my movie soundtrack vinyl. I have 2001, Alien so far, but honestly they sound pretty good for being a 30 year plus recording on vinyl. Plus all my electronic vinyl that I used to dj with, now all the kids use laptops and serato lol.

Oh man I need those two. So so good!

Uh oh, lookout dubstep! smile.gif Vinyl is so much fun.

"Vinyl records are making a comeback"

Vinyl is growing out of its niche.

There were always record collectors who disdained the compact disc, arguing that an LP’s grooves yielded warmth and depth that the CD’s digital code could not match. But the market largely ignored them. Record labels shuttered their LP pressing plants, except for a few that pressed mostly dance music, since vinyl remained the medium of choice for D. J.s. As it turned out, that early resistance was not futile, thanks largely to an audience of record collectors, many born after CDs were introduced in the 1980s. These days, every major label and many smaller ones are releasing vinyl, and most major new releases have a vinyl version, leading to a spate of new pressing plants. When the French electronica duo Daft Punk released “Random Access Memories” in mid-May, 6 percent of its first-week sales — 19,000 out of 339,000 — were on vinyl, according to Nielsen SoundScan, which measures music sales.

Amen! Got all my vinyl going back to the 40's tucked away in the office. Always pulling something out and playing it for my 10-year old daughter. Most of the time it's when I'm cooking but on ocassion, we just pick something and dance around. Vinyl has, and always will, set your soul free.

Agreed and even in my circumstance, well years ago djing at various clubs/underground parties lol. It actually takes work to learn to beat match (or mix different styles of music) and put together vinyl continuously 'live' for an audience. I liked the tactile feel of vinyl on my fingers and then looking up at the crowd to see/feel what you want to play next. These days I hear that to be a dj the computer does everything for you, sad really and I was happy to be a part of the scene that still used vinyl. I will never get rid of my vinyl and my kids live touching the spinning record when I take out my decks.

Mmmm......eargasm.

Tonight we attended a free outside screening of Child's Play and Fright Night with director Tom Holland. He had some interesting insight on the genre in the Q&A beforehand. Very cool guy. Can't wait for the August show: Killer Klowns with the Chiodo Bros!



Get ready to take my card again. Look what showed up in the mail today tongue.gif

lmao! I wish I had some tube amps! Years ago I had an opportunity to buy some Mcintosh amps but I had no where to use them because I lived in an apartment.

Watched Hansel and Gretel last night and I liked the alot of the gore/make up in that movie. Also what is not to like when you have actresses like Gemma, Famke and that red head taking her clothes off!

That VHS tape of Night of the Creeps look sweet! It even came with the space slug! How awesome is that!

Same here man. That movie is taking some heat it its own thread but I enjoyed it for the (unrated) B-grade slopfest it was. Two Gemma films deep & I'm now a big fan. She's sizzlin'!

And to keep up with my spamming of the thread....

They had a silkscreen poster at the movie last night. I already had a frame & couldn't resist. biggrin.gif
Chucky's ready for his close-up!

My daughter would have that up in her room in a heartbeat even though she hasn't seen the movie (OK - I told her she wasn't old enough yet.) She kept up a constant barrage of questions about the plot until I told her enough and ended with, "Because I'm your father, that's why!) wink.gif

Speaking of VHS I suspect a few of you would enjoy Blood Dragon.

Very nice poster Wizzack! I saw that thread and I suddenly realize that certain genres catch more heat than others on this forum, mainly Sci-Fi. Oh well I had fun watching that movie and that is all that matters!

That video game intro was pretty cool Darth! The guys talking on that video talk about 'tracking buttons', my first VCR had a tracking dial you would turn lol. Funny my father had a LD player before he bought a VCR and LD had a better picture. Although flipping the disc was kind of a downer but the pq was fantastic for it's time.

Why just stop at VHS? Why not get 16mm prints and show them with that B&H sound projector like you had back in those old school days? In my small town we had movie nights at the gymnasium about once a month where a feature length film was shown (the nearest theater was 20 miles away). I recall going to the local camera store which rented both movies and projectors for that. Or is that just too low tech? biggrin.gif

Now you're talking. Sounds like a good time to me and a better presentation than some crappy video tape. Interesting that you could actually rent the projectors AND movies at the camera store back then. Very cool.

Wasn't she a Bond girl as well? That is insta-status although she does not come close to the greatness of Eva Green but given that there are two Bong girls in H&G it's worth a rent on those merits alone.

Yep she was in Quantum of Solace, also she was considered for Black Widow in the Marvel films iirc.

I first remember seeing Famke in a episode of Star Trek TNG (yes I am a fan!) and she still looks great today!

Any of you have Fear.net? I'm seeing chatter about Holliston.
