Envy/Thursday split LP

I finished the Charm City Suicides post and noticed the pre-order for the Envy/Thursday split had been announced.

Someone be a pal and order me one...

I'll be your best friend...

I'll trade you cool comic book statues...

I got these cheeseburgers, man...

...c'mon, baby, don't make me beg.

TRL did the same thing with the new Grails... buy the two versions (cover art and different coloured vinyl) together, with a free CD. except the arts for this split seem almost identical...

I don't want to get hypocritical, because I love coloured vinyl and buy lps for the artwork, but the special deal (which is just twice the price, of course, plus the CD) of identical versions smacks of some very bizarre consumerism to me. like the guy who has every single colour of every HWM record.

anyway, Envy/Jesu is where it's at... though I don't think that's coming out on vinyl for a while yet. I'm going to wait and see how good the Envy side of this is (and, theoretically, the Thursday side as well) before deciding whether I really want one. one one.

GGH, I think I meant to post the regular edition of this, as opposed to the "supa-limited, 5 colors of vinyl & three different screens of the same image for 1000 spacebux" version. That ALWAYS pissed me off when my rent money went towards records, and it especially pisses me off now when I have to spend my pay on important stuff. I haven't picked up the Envy/Jesu yet, though your posts a couple of months back have had me intrigued. Although present for Thursday at a few of their early, Eyeball Records-era shows (including a scorcher with Kid Dynamite & Crispus Attucks at the Wilson Center in DC), I've just never really taken to them. Gotta say, though, Geoff Rickey sounds like the kinda cat I'd get along with.

I reckoned that might have been referring to, but I decided to go ahead with the mini-rant anyway. The link went to the specials page, the regualr release has its own page.

I've never really been exposed to Thursday, so I'll keep an open mind. If Envy like them then that's a good endorsement, at least. But since I've already put in my pre-order for Grails I won't be rushing in to spend more money on this just yet.

Crude - Immortality

This is just a super quick one for all you hardcore kids. Besides, the good Senator stole all the vitriol I had stored up for his major screed below. I rediscovered this gem while cleaning my office the other day. When Deranged released Immortality a few years back, they also released a limited run of 300 CDs with a dope acetate cover. So that's where this is from. If you like Japanese D-beat, this is right up your alley. I feel like perhaps I should say more, like how this record had a major impact on my life, but I'd be lying. I found it in a stack of promo CDs, I ripped it, and I've been playing it loudly on my iPod for the past few days. And now I have to run off, since Mrs. Ape Mummy made cookies. Let the circle pit begin!

Live at Chaos in Tejas, 5/17/08 - Majesty

I've been working through the first hour of Star Trek, having called off "Dinner and a Movie", and, instead, just fixed pancakes, eggs and milk.  I have all the epicurean taste of a 12-year-old.  As great as this looks in 1080p, I'm just having a hard time staying awake.  Maybe I shouldn't have seen this four times this summer.  I'm a geek. was a bargain-bin discovery for me.  If memory serves, I scored this for $2 from Reptilian on a Sunday when I should have been home, painting a wall or fixing a toilet or doing whatever a typical husband and homeowner does.  But, like I said, I'm a geek.  I like record stores, book giveaways and staying faithful to the people I love.

Back to h.g.c: they were from Richmond and recorded for Old Glory Records. Old Glory was one of those labels like Vermiform, Vermin Scum, and Gravity that was amazingly great in the early 90's and then fell off the map by 2000.  Members of went on to Rah Bra…
