    I snagged a couple of pedals — one of the Dunlop CryBaby’s and the Metal Muff. I just got them added to my pedal board today, and can’t wait to spend some time playing them! The prices on those pedals weren’t bad at all, and I love the fact that I get to play through a couple of pedals that J used!

    And I’m super jealous of whoever wound up with the purple Fender amp….

    I’m loving what I’m hearing of the new album so far. I enjoyed I Bet On Sky quite a bit, but I think I’m enjoying this one quite a bit more after a few listens. There are a couple of songs with a super-heavy groove that I’m loving, and “Left/Right” just may be the best thing Lou has ever done. Super-solid album from start to finish. Hopefully the big bundles will ship soon — I can’t wait to listen to this on vinyl!!

    Can’t wait to get my copy of the book…. but has anyone heard if there will be a digital copy of the book offered as well? I would love to have a digital copy to easily take with me while I’m traveling!

    I decided to make the jump back to vinyl about a year ago, and I have this turntable that I ordered from Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/Technica-AT-LP60-Automatic-Driven-Turntable/dp/B002GYTPAE/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1348260285&sr=1-1

    I have it running through an older Kenwood receiver that I had retired to my office since it doesn’t do surround sound, and I absolutely love the way it all sounds. I’m sure there are better turntables out there, but I have no problem recommending this one for a not-too-expensive first turntable.

    Hi folks — first comment here (been a fan since my college years when “Where You Been” was new).
    Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents as well that I ordered the big pre-order bundle with the signed poster as well, and I haven’t received anything from Transmission Merchandise other than my original PayPal receipt either. I understand that manufacturing, shipping, and all that stuff can take some time and can even be late….but the lack of communication from Transmission Merch is upsetting. If nothing else, a simple mass email to everyone who ordered giving a head’s-up that the package was running late would have been nice. I had a vinyl pre-order from another band a couple of weeks ago that was pushed back due to manufacturing issues, so the company behind that one sent out a digital download of the album to tide us over until the vinyl showed up….I thought that was a very cool gesture. Something as simple as that would have made the wait for this one much better. Instead, I resorted to less-than-legit means to acquire the digital files on release day so I could at least hear the music.

    Oh well, I guess it’s not that big of a deal….but I wanted to vent for a second. The bundle will get here when it gets here. The good news is that I’m loving the music, and I can’t wait to see the band in Dallas in a few weeks!!
