Shipping Balls!

Book Cover (Masthay)

Ever since the books were delivered around noon yesterday, I’ve been shipping my face off and haven’t been able to accomplish anything else. I’ve been workin’ round the clock to get all holiday orders out the door by tomorrow. The only exceptions to these will be international orders—I will have to deal with those separately; I apologize for the delay. Anyhow, look for the book in the mail soon! I’ll see you on the other side!


UPDATE: Any domestic orders placed by the 12/5 holiday deadline have been shipped as of 12/17. The rest of the books will begin shipping Monday. I will be in touch with international orders individually regarding postage. Thanks for your support! Can’t wait ’til you get em! MSG is lurking in the shadows…


MONDAY UPDATE: Any domestic orders places through December 13th have processed and will be shipped out today. The remainder of the domestic orders should be out the door tomorrow, and at the latest, Wednesday. I’ve been too busy packing to type thoughts, but I’m getting excited at this point…9 days…

    Last page there was some King Crimson talk:

    Now’s a good time to be discovering their stuff, with new reissues coming out of all the albums that have improved noticeably on the sound, and including 5.1 mixes, etc. Discipline and Starless & Bible Black were reissued this fall and they sound really outstanding.

    Favorite Crimson tune? Right now, Indiscipline.

  2. Cable Hogue Says:

    I broke my Phish fast with the Essex Carini the other week, that did the trick. Haven’t listened to H/W-S yet.

    BTW, thank you Mr. C for the Movin’ On mix, I don’t think I said that yet. Many hours of enjoyment ensued, due to many back to back spins of “Expressway”.

    only time i’ve been asked to change the music while having beverages?

    colorado state 1989, my dorm room. discipline by king crimson. not a mood setter i guess.

  4. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Don’t forget the 40th anniversary re release of Tago Mago by Can.

    Supposed to have previously unreleased studio and live music on it as well.

    I want that shit, for sure.

    The Goblin turned me on to that band. Monster Movie isn’t a bad record either.

  5. Jtran Says:


    Thanks for the Bombay Dub Orchestra drop. The name grabbed me and I turned it on. Will have to listen to more tomorrow during work.

  6. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Not gonna lie, I have to say I like Bob Marley a lot less now cuz of all of AWs recs

  7. poop goblin Says:

    all Can is $$$$

    was bumpin Ege Bamyasi last night. so epic.

    if you dig the kraut rock Palmer you should check Faust – Faust IV

    classic krautrock

  8. sumodie Says:

    White Denin & Wooden Shjips have been added to my list. AJ’s #1, Africa Hi-Tech, has also got me intrigued

    I grabbed a bunch of live King Crimson off the noid recently, so far so amazing. Still need to buy some more of their studio work too

  9. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Still love Marley. Always have, always will. Sure its commercial, but its still great.

    I can’t imagine being lucky enough to see Bob in concert.

  10. angryjoggerz Says:

    I should note that my list was in alphabetical order, not ranked.

  11. Tom Says:

    Discipline, I don’t think I will ever be able to play that song on guitar.

  12. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Kraut Rock FTW!

  13. MrCompletely Says:

    Corporate Government

    cheers @cable! That Expressway is classic – Jerry is like half awake or something and faceplants repeatedly in the first few minutes, and then roars back with a long series of epic leads culminating in a sick Django run…that’s so Jerry

  14. tela'smuff Says:

    Neu – Neu!

  15. angryjoggerz Says:

    Don’t sleep on Soul Jazz either

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    What was the consensus around here on the new M83 btw? I wasn’t around when it came out I don’t think.

  17. poop goblin Says:

    D e m o n hints

    There is a full soul jazz discography and the whole pressure sounds discography on there in mp3

  18. gavinsdad Says:

    i thought making tender sweet dead tour love to matte kudesai was the move until the song ended and indiscipline came on.

    TMI sorry awesome lol’ing to myself over here…poor girl!

  19. poop goblin Says:

    The early Scratch produced Wailer tracks are some of the greatest songs ever put to tape.

    Later Bob just suffers from the worst possible thing that could happen to music IMO.
    Too fuckin clean. From Dark Side of the Moon to later Marley to Paul Simon’s Graceland.

    I hate shiny ass clean ass production. Can’t take it.

    Need me some grit and some dirt. Why I love mid 70’s JA stuff. Marley lost his way.

  20. gavinsdad Says:

    C – that corporate gov’t jpg is chilling.

  21. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Still love Graceland though….

  22. poop goblin Says:

    But I’m a burnt wook that just liked to get faded and spin vinyl. You’d have to be crazy to ever take anything I say about music seriously.

    There are serious musically historians that chill around here.

    I just dig what I dig, nahmean?

  23. poop goblin Says:

    All I have to do is think of Paul Simon performing with African musicians and I start laughing to myself

    Those rumors that was the album in AC were killing me. That may have been a game changer for me and Trey. May have left the building.

  24. Mr.Miner Says:

    Dude. Graceland is simply one of the best albums ever made.

  25. Selector J Says:

    @aw What do you think about Natty Dread as a BMW album?
