241 bucks for 31 discs?

Damn, before it went out of print, the 104 disc Complete Law and Order could be had for around 300-350 bucks.

From what I understand, that's been a dream of theirs for many years. While I'm not into Ween or fishing, I'd watch the hell out of that show.

Loves me some Ween.  It's not everyone's bag but, if you hear something you don't like just skip to the next track on the album and it will be completely different.  I would suggest starting with 'The Mollusk' or 'Chocolate and Cheese' or maybe even get their 'Live in Chicago' album or DVD.  Dean Ween is an under apprieciated guitar player.

Well, hey - Primus can be the same way (Hallucino-Genetics is a solid live DVD). I think I'll sample some Ween from the internet when I get home. Free-range, you dig?

// Primus fans - don't sleep on Antipop, and how do we feel about Green Naugahyde?

I'd happily pay that to get well mastered 24bit/192kHz 5.1 recordings of Ralph Vaughan Williams's collected works as performed by well-regarded ensembles.

For reference, I effectively paid $180 to get DVD-Audio recordings of all 12 hours of Lord of the Rings scoring, and that was just three discs, total.

Dr Dreidel: I think I'll sample some Ween from the internet when I get home. Free-range, you dig?


For any other band, just grabbing a few tracks might give you a fairly representative sample of what they're about. That ... doesn't really work with Ween because they're kind of all over the place. Take the track listing for "Chocolate and Cheese" (which I'd say is a great place to start):

1. "Take Me Away" -- a guitar-heavy, Thin Lizzy-ish rock sound.
2. "Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down)" -- just creepy, gratuitous weirdness
3. "Freedom of '76" -- a '70s-ish slow soul jam, sung in an awesome falsetto
4. "I Can't Put My Finger on It" -- a Tom Waits-y kind of growl over a stomping rhythm with some Middle Eastern-y flavor near the end
5. "A Tear for Eddie" -- instrumental guitar workout, a tribute to Parliment-Funkadelic guitarist Eddie Hazel
6. "Roses Are Free" -- a pop style, heavily-produced
7. "Baby biatch" -- got sort of an acoustic folk feel, I guess
8. "Mister, Would You Please Help My Pony?" -- another pop-ish style
9. "Drifter in the Dark" -- cowboy-style country
10. "Voodoo Lady" -- straight up funk
11. "Joppa Road" -- soft rock
12. "Candi" -- experimental music, more weridness
13. "Buenas Tardes Amigo" -- very much in the style of a Mexican folk song
14. "The HIV Song" -- an oom-pah rhythm and a carnival organ keyboard line.
15. "What Deaner Was Talkin' About" -- a Oasis-kind of pop feel
16. "Don't shiat Where You Eat" -- sort of a pop-folk feel to it

With Ween, I think you kind of just need to jump into an album format and see what happens. Part of the fun is getting used to one style on one song, and then having your head blown off by the g-forces when the next song is something so radically different.

sandi_fish: The Carol Burnett show DVDs?


That's 22 discs for 200 bucks, so it would probably be a bit higher. But, it's a Time/Life set, so of course it'll be higher.

I also understand the $200 price tag for the upcoming 21 disc China Beach set, since they reportedly cleared the majority of the music for the episodes.

Proper trading communities police their shiat and are pretty militant about swatting down anything that doesn't meet community standards. The sites I use will ban users for absolutely anything that doesn't meet strict guidelines, like using or not using specific container formats or mangling file naming conventions, let alone distributing malware. And, of course, you can always use NNTP to obtain stuff but that carries the same risk. The important thing is that you're not getting stuff from public torrent sites or random file upload services.

You can always use SugarDVD or Wantedlist, if you're willing to take the time to encode discs yourself, but the folks who are already distributing will very often make available content that's never going to be released on a physical disc and they often provide multiple quality settings such that even people with limited storage and bandwidth can get what they want,

Anyway, if you're doing any sort of file sharing - porn or not - you should probably find yourself a VPN service provider and/or a torrent proxy service. Porn companies are really litigious and the last thing you want is your name in a court filing regarding "Cum Thirsty Midget Shemales in Heat volume 7", which is a lot more scary than a malware infection.

And Ally McBeal.

And music is keeping The Wonder Years and WKRP from ever hitting DVD.

/but those damn Brits know how to cut through music rights red tape. Region 1 Quantum Leap DVDs, for example, have hacked up and edited music. Region 2 releases have original music intact. And that's why you have to love Amazon UK sellers who ship to the US.
