    NBA Season 22/23

    The Warriors were already a Finals team without KD, though. You're right he should have stayed there if he wanted to win championships, but these guys always have something to prove. He couldn't get there with Russ in his prime or with Harden/Irving and a bunch of talented vets backing him up...

    NBA Season 22/23

    The Kyrie trade is merely the opening act in the KD trade main event. This week is gonna be a media frenzy no matter the outcome. I can't wait to see how much teams are willing to give up for a guy that's admittedly super talented but who's never been able to carry a team on his own.

    R.I.P. Terry Hall

    RIP to a great singer from an underrated band. I enjoyed seeing them live close to 10 years ago, but seeing them in the early 80s would have been something else.

    Lithy, can you make decent beer at home?

    Cost varies by location/distributor, beer style, and level of commitment to the process. All grain and partial mash ingredients are going to cost a lot more than your standard beer in a can kit or even brew kits put together by a local homebrew shop, but you get what you pay for -- just like at...

    Lithy, can you make decent beer at home?

    I've homebrewed on and off for 15 years. As with anything, you catch the bug and it's fun for a while until you find a new use for that time and money. Like Lithy says, it's not cost-effective compared to buying beer at the grocery store. Time is the big factor for me, though. It's hard to...

    What records are you listening to tonight?

    Listened to the new Mingus I picked up on Black Friday RSD, which sounds just okay (pretty noisy), as well as an older favorite of his, which is a joy to listen to.

    Midterm election 2022

    Since none of these elderly politicians are truly fit for office, they're all ripe for criticism and speculation. If they ever remove a sitting president for health reasons, it's going to be because he's on life support or something. Just doesn't happen, as much as the other side wishes it would...

    NBA Season 22/23

    Ime Udoka to the Nets is perfect. Maybe they can sign Josh Primo, too.

    All MVS moved offsite, sold prices left up.

    Agreed. Marty's stuff is immaculate, and he packs/ships with care. Great seller!

    What records are you listening to tonight?

    I've got the mono release headed my way from Plaid Room. I didn't think I needed the extra disc of material - how is it? Can't wait to give it a listen when it gets here early next week.

    WTB Some MVS Fighters (Art of Fighting 3, Last Blade 2, Real Bout Special)

    So it's finally October. I know many people that watch horror movies to get into the spirit of Halloween. This year, I started watching horror films (somewhat more regularly than usual) around the beginning of September. I'm going to try and watch 62 horror movies in the two months (61 days)...

    Selling/Shipping Question

    So I got a letter on Monday from the USPS stating that a package I sent to Canada was destroyed in transit when the truck crashed and caught on fire (R.I.P. KOF 95 and KOF 2003 MVS carts). I sent First Class International which does not come with insurance (the buyer did not request insurance)...

    Must-see sights/beer stops for European vacation (Germany, Austria, Italy, Czech Republic)

    My wife and I are embarking on a 16-day European vacation this Saturday. We're visiting - in order - Dresden, Prague, Salzburg, Northern Italy (Trento, Bolzano, Venice, and maybe a few more cities), and finally Munich. We're really into beer, so we'd like to experience as much German, Austrian...
