Re: Selling some CDs

So this sale is all done; most the remaining CDs were dropped off at Easy Street Records in Seattle. Thanks to all who participated.

Re: Selling some CDs

Okay, this is I think the last of those I'm going to sell (though 1 or 2 others could turn up and I probably should list most of my LPs at some point). Veering away from the primarily "eai"-ish stuff here, but I know the board has diverse tastes. As always these have been folded into the main list w...

Re: Selling some CDs

I have gone through most of the "eai" type of music, this is maybe a quarter of it? Maybe as much as a third. The rest of my collection will probably not have as high a percentage - certainly little of my classical collection will be culled and I doubt much of my rock and jazz would be of much inter...

Selling some CDs

Time to thin out my collection a bit. Since I'd like these to go where they'd be the most appreciated I'm going to offer these here before putting them up elsewhere. I've gone through about a fifth of my collection so I'll update this over the next couple of weeks as I sort though the rest. One copy...

2010 Overrated, Underrated and Disappointing

I brought this up in the Wire thread, that most of the other arts are able to discuss things that they didn't like or thought were overrated without imploding so lets give it a shot. Its always useful to define ones terms, so the working definition of something being overrated is that it is overvalu...

Re: i've been holding this back awhile but i hate the wire..

there is absolutely no question that this area could use better criticism from more people, insiders, outsiders, positive, negative, whatever. that doesn't make what we have now, at The Wire or elsewhere, entirely worthless, which was the original thesis. Sure and I said "I don't entirely reject re...

Re: i've been holding this back awhile but i hate the wire..

I'm agreeing that it is more like work. You know you get paid for it. On the other hand I read various blogs on non music entertainment - movies and games (professionally mostly in the latter case) and it being the end of the year it is of course list time. I've been reading plenty of Worst of 2010,...

Re: i've been holding this back awhile but i hate the wire..

of course there is, and in fact our area could really use more informed critics. but writing an informed negative review is probably even harder than an informed positive review (the work/pleasure balance shifts more towards work), I don't think you're fully taking that into account. I do realize t...

Re: i've been holding this back awhile but i hate the wire..

I'll pleasure myself with some schadenfreude, I just don't want to be that guy. Does a musician who works within the parameters I outlined need to be *taken down a notch?* From what lofty height? Now this is an oversimplification of a negative review. Basically what you guys are saying is that ther...

Re: i've been holding this back awhile but i hate the wire..

many reviewers probably just don't bother or have no interest in writing about the things they hear but don't like. Yes this is true, however would you keep sending stuff to people who don't review them? Wouldn't you figure after sending a number of discs and the reviewer never reviewing them that ...

Re: i've been holding this back awhile but i hate the wire..

While the poster who started this (quite amusing now) little sidetrack was overly hyperbolic, I don't think he is entirely off base. Yes none of the reviewers of the music championed here are getting paid (or paid much), but it is still a pay to play game. The reviewers that are followed here all ar...

Re: Now Playing

My Annual Gift Giving day present to myself is that Music for Merce set (which I'm more excited about then anything) but it won't be in my hands for a week or two. As for Treatise what I've been meaning to get for ages is one of the original printings of the score. Peters photocopies are pretty low ...

Re: Now Playing

Got that +3dB Cardew disc yet, Robert? Hope Santa comes through in time! Would love to hear your thoughts (or maybe you already posted them somewhere and I missed it). Alas no. I've been waiting for Jon to get it, but even looking at other places (Forced et al) it doesn't appear to have hit North A...

Re: Now Playing

Thank you all for the Beethoven pointers. The only one that gets recommendations both here and the other sources I've asked seems to be the Furtwangler Beyruth 1951. I'm interested in the idea of the smaller orchestra too, though. I'll look into that also. Thank you all also for the links. You defi...
