  1. I caved -- seems like it will be worth the $25.19 (stupid exchange rate)
  2. I work on the upper-east side, so I usually make it down to the Bowery around 5:30-6:00 and am always one of the first there -- that's probably the only thing I don't like about there is how late their shows start, but I guess everything goes late into the night in NYC (except my train back to NJ). Getting amped now that the tour has started, I haven't seen Matthew Good live in almost 5 years!
  3. 60 posts, at this rate I'm not going to get lounge access for at least another decade! Can forum membership length be factored in as well?
  4. See you there, front and center.
  5. I take it that means there's a minimum post requirement?
  6. Finally got my copy down here in NJ, loving Volcanoes and Empty's Theme Park the most. Anyone else find too much snare and not enough bass in the mix though? Equalizer fixes it -- maybe it's just me.
  7. Flash is a fantastic tool for both programming and multimedia. I think what you were trying to say was "Flash's embedded audio encoding sounds awful at low bitrates" but then again so does everything else. Lucky for you, the Flash player is just linking to an MP3 file, whose location is readily available. As for your incorrect assertions on file types, since the preview just being served via a web server, all file types are free, providing you have a player for them. Outside of the Apple community, MP4 support is not yet as prevalent as MP3, so I would argue MP3 is the choice format. St
  8. So yesterday came and went and clearly nothing happened...FYI.

    A Game

  10. Mother Mother opened for Sam Roberts here in NYC back in February. They were OK.
  11. I'll sell you mine for $30 plus shipping. Pretty sure that's how much I gave Andrew from Phoenix for it off ebay in the stupidity of my youth. I also paid $100+ for Lo-Fi B-Sides, which Matt signed in 2005 and told me it would be worthless because it was going on In A Coma later that year. F I've wasted a lot of money...
  12. Maybe my ears are deceiving me, or maybe it's just because they're all demos, but do all the songs have pretty much the exact same drum track?
  13. False. Edit: Pfft, too short my ass Come to think of it, why am I even here? I thought I gave up this message board crap years ago. At least you guys seem like you aren't tools
  14. Being that I'm sitting at my desk on the corner of 60th and Madison right now, my question is: Why on earth would anyone live in New York City?
  15. Just seeing if there's any actual interest in this... On September 14, 1999, an album by the name of Beautiful Midnight was released. A short time later, it found its way into my CD player, and long story short became part of a significant milestone in my life. I find it hard to believe that an entire decade has past since then, and how much the world has changed in that time. I think now is as good a time as any to revisit it, in the form of a tribute/cover to quite possibly one of the greatest albums of our time. So here's the plan (which of course with feedback is subject to c
  16. Pretty sure I've got all of 2002 and 2003 on CD somewhere, I'll take a look. Through the years, Giant into SWW was always my favorite way to end a show.
  17. Greatest song ever? Or favorite song ever? I'm gonna go with the latter. Either: Matthew Good Band - A Boy And His Machine Gun or The Weakerthans - This Is A Fire Door: Never Leave Open
  18. If anyone in the Toronto area is interested: The Weakerthans are playing a free show at Harbourfront July 29. I really wanted to go to complete the trilogy, but unfortunately it's my friend's birthday and apparently that's my priority. I would never do this if it were a ticketed event, but since it's free I figure it's probably acceptable. Your reward will be $20 (via Paypal), which is probably the amount I would spend on gas getting there and back, plus you get to enjoy one of the greatest bands in the country for free! Lemme know if you're interested.
  19. I don't want to make a profit off them, so $70 each. I know this sounds expensive, but check eBay and you'll see them going for $200 US.
  20. Friday June 23 in Toronto -- I've got 2 extras cause my friends ditched me. IM/PM/email/reply here. Thanks, ~Steve
  21. For anyone wondering, that's my head in there. Hi to the 2 guys behind me (and beside once the girl left) I remember seeing you guys take the video, I tried to stay as much out of it as I could, looked like I failed. Also, we really should have kicked that drunk dude's ass.

    Lo-fi B-sides

    Haha, oops - by live DVD I meant the music videos.
  23. I talked to Matt before the Arizona's show (he signed my copy of Lo-Fi) and also confirmed the following: Lo-Fi B-Sides and Loser Anthems will both be included on a single disc as part of In A Coma. So I'm assuming it's a 4 disc set, the other 3 being the best of, the acoustic stuff, and the live DVD. I'm hoping some more B-sides are also in there, that would be cool. You're welcome, ~Steve
