RIP: Darren Arthur Daulton - January 3, 1962 – August 6, 2017


Darn. Darren 'Dutch' Daulton, longtime Philadelphia Phillies catcher & fan favorite passed away yesterday after 4year battle w/brain cancer. Also, was very good in broadcast booth too (radio) as Phillies 'Color Commentor' for Home Games. RIP. 1962-2017. Yes, that's his pic on MLB Baseball that I have on shelf in apartment. Very good guy.

FallNet Correspondence


 

God, I Hate The Fall (The Hume)

It never fails... why is the best song (your fave) on a cd/album always the 1st tune to skip/scratch on an album/cd? Bah-Humbug! Jesus, I'm dying a slow death.

Music Equipment My turntable is a 'Third Man Records' player with no speakers attached, ie, sorta like what your older or younger sister had in the 70s to play the group Bread, Copacabana song by Barry Manilow, or even the 'Shadow Dancing' single by younger brother Andy Gibbs. Ha! Anyways bought the GBV - Abridged Suitcase LP (Captain Kangaroo Wins) about a year ago and was never particularly fond of it but yesterday, on my Birthdate, downloaded the free 22song lp onto my tablet & wow! it's really good! Ok. Bye.

Re: {FallNet} Music Equipment


I got my daughter one of those record players for Xmas either this
past year or the one before, mainly because she's a big Jack White fan
and has actually visited Third Man Studios. I almost immediately
regretted it, though, because it's an ultra-shitty Crosley record
player that will probably do more to wreck records than to play them
so that they sound good. Or even halfway reasonable.

I would say something like "no wonder you like the mp3 version better"
due to the shittyness of these record players, but actually I think
most GBV stuff was probably meant to sound best on the shittiest
equipment available.

True statement. Only lps that sound good on it are the 'mono' albums of Johnny Cash that I picked up for $1 apiece (scratches & all) @corner thrift store. Oh, and 'Get The Knack!' too. Really.

{FallNet} Re: Record Equipment



that makes sense that old thrift store records would sound okay on it;
I think "Get The Knack" was meant to sound that way also.
