  1. I stopped worrying about getting the reisued vinyls in December 2012, because I thought they were too expensive and it was too incomprehensible which shop would ship to which countries. And now, about 6 months later, I read about all your experiences and I'm happy for everybody who has got what they have wished for. But cosplusisin's story really makes me frown , it sounds kind of bizarre to truncate something you have invested some time and money in. Though I'm glad to hear it may help, I would not want to try it. There should be some quality control to prevent this kind of error I would think.
  2. I just looked up the vinyls at the official store, to find out "The Empyrean" is out of stock, and therefore neither of the bundles can be ordered. So I just clicked on the "Buy Now" button of a couple of the vinyls (actually I'm missing a lot of them) and find out there's no "Germany" in the list where to select your country. No France, Spain, Italy etc. either, so it looks like the same strange shipping behaviour as with the PBX cassette?
  3. It would still include pretty insane shipping costs (USD 9.64) compared to the price of the product (USD 9.99), plus more shipping costs from Norway (or any of the "allowed" countries) to the country Passengers lives in.
  4. I'm also not sure what happened, but the comment functions are now how they used to be before :yes:/>
  5. Well, according to what can be read on page 1 of this thread, I would have expected that you can buy the cassette by now via the international store, it's a pity you can't. What about writing an e-mail to the U.S. based store and telling them about your problem? And England is not the only country they won't ship the cassette to, actually most European countries aren't listed. So one would either have to buy a PBX deluxe bundle which includes the cassette or they will change their mind and ship cassettes to Europe, too. Though in case of buying only a cassette, the shipping costs will exceed the costs for the product explicitly. Have you tried to find the cassette on ebay?
  6. I have searched this forum, but did not find a comprehensive list. I already had a list with cover songs RHCP did (but I forgot where I found it :blush:/> ) and today I added more cover songs I know of, including some John did as his solo shows. Whenever John did a cover I did not know before, I would look up the original, so John has broadened my musical horizon. Here's a list of cover songs he did, a lot of them at RHCP shows, as a "John solo", but sometimes also together with the band, and some of them he played at shows on his own. (And yes, I already posted this on the Coma, so whoever visits both message boards might have seen the list already.) In case there's something wrong or you have something to add, please post about it, and I will update the list. The show dates are just examples and helpful if you want to find an example of a live recording of a particular song. Edit: When I found a video or audio link, it will be of the mentioned show date. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Live Covers - with RHCP - by John - at shows on his own 1970 - Iggy Pop (1998-06-25 "Tribut show to Iggy Pop" - Hollywood Moguls - Hollywood CA USA) After Hours - Velvet Underground (1991-10-19 Stephens Auditorium - Ames IA USA) Ain't Nuthin' But A G-Thang - Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog (2005-08-20 Amsterjam Festival - New York NY USA) All The Young Dudes - Mott The Hoople (2003-01-28 Palacio Vistalegre - Madrid ES) - Bauhaus (2001-02-03 La Scene - Paris FR) Anarchy In The UK - Sex Pistols (1990-06-04 Pinkpop Festival - Landgraaf NL and 1989-04-28 Sundance Club - Bayshore Ny USA) - David Bowie (2001-02-08 Paradiso - Amsterdam NL) Back In Black - AC/DC (1990-03-16 - Daytona Beach FL USA) Being Boiled - Human League (2006-07-06 ??? - Sheffield UK) Beverly Hills - Circle Jerks (2001-01-21 Rock In Rio III - Rio de Janeiro BR and 2000-10-28 Bridge School Benefit - Mountain View CA USA) - 45 Grave (2004-06-05 Rock am Ring - Nürburg DE)Blitzkrieg Bop - The Ramones (1988-10-09 Octoke Gym - Columbus OH USA) Blue Monday - New Order (2003-03-11 MEN Arena - Manchester UK) Blue Sunday - The Doors (2006-12-07 Stadthalle Vienna AT and 2006-12-12 Stockholm Globe Arena - Stockholm SE) Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell (2002-07-28 Fuji Rock Festival JP) Boys Don't Cry - The Cure (2000-01-27 Sydney Entertainment Centre AU) Boyz-N-Da-Hood - Eazy E (1990-06-04 Pinkpop Festival - Landgraaf NL and 1990-03-16 - Daytona Beach FL USA) - Looking Glass (2004-06-05 Rock am Ring - Nürburg DE)Bullet Proof - George Clinton (1990-03-16 - Daytona Beach FL USA) Castles Made Of Sand - Jimi Hendrix (1990-06-04 Pinkpop Festival - Landgraaf NL and 1989-10-05 Mississippi Nights - St. Louis MO USA) - David Bowie (1998-06-25 "Tribut show to Iggy Pop" - Hollywood Moguls - Hollywood CA USA) Christine - Siouxie & The Banshees (2001-08-xx Festival - ???

  7. Happy belated birthday, Patrick :birthday:/> And wow, that's what I call good timing! I'm also lucky, my deluxe bundle arrived yesterday and furthermore I got a small package from Japan today :yes:/> I've been thinking about taking a picture to share my PBX happiness with you, but haven't come up with an idea yet, but I will join the album. The only let-down is my cassette is scratched (the plastic box), but I'm probably to busy to complain about it.
  8. As I already told you in a conversation some days ago, I created an intensedebate.com account in order to be able to comment on the website and not to worry about logging in each time. Today I've seen that I'm not logged in on the website and there is no possibility to log in with an intensedebate.com account any more. Instead of my chosen avatar I now see my comments with an alien smilie (like all other users), though I can live with that ;)/> , I am confused why you disabled the aforementioned function. And furthermore the table with the smilies cannot be seen either, though there are still smilies in the comments. So is this just an intermediate status or something you wanted to be this way?

So corrections are welcome.

  12. http://www.welt.de/p...inenlieder.html welt.de | 26.09.2012 | John Frusciante: PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone | review by Michael Pilz 5 out of 5 Translation: Iva, if there are faults, please correct them. A lot of times, negative reviews anger me and I don't read them, but this one made me laugh. It has a nice humor to it, and a combination of an understanding of John's background and how the album came about while expressing (his clearly biased and a tad narrow-minded) opinions about why it wasn't for him. (...) Anyways, long tangent but the reviews so far are about what I expected: some appreciation here and there, some "benefit of the doubt because RHCP was awesome," but mostly a giant WTF by anyone who makes a living reviewing more or less conventional music. Derek, I can only agree with you on this, especially for the last sentence :lol:/> So far, some of the reviews reveal some details of the music, so at least the reviewer has listened to PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone, but some of them tell quite frankly it's nothing for them. "If nothing else, PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone serves as a reminder of the power of unbridled creativity." from the Eclectik Electrik review shows some appreciation though.
  13. Iva pointed to this, it is a snippet, but they rate the album with 5 stars. (A translation will be available soon.) http://www.welt.de/p...inenlieder.html Not sure which of these others are "professional" reviews, so maybe you want to split the thread, Iva?

  14. According to amazon there is a 2009 re-issue of "Automatic Writing", it has the ASIN code B0002IQM98, while the Cat# is 48845-2, here is an example. My CD (2004) has the Cat# 9362-48845-2, while an "import CD" on amazon has the ASIN code B0002MOL92. Furthermore discogs.com provides an overview. The 2004 CD version has a rough cardboard cover (digipak), you can hardly read the artist and album name. Judging from the picture at amazon.de or discogs.com, the cover of the 2009 re-issue looks brighter, but that might be done in Photoshop :lol:/> So maybe an owner of the 2009 re-issue has to tell us about it.
  15. Omer, that's really a difficult task :o/> I looked at my "John playlist" and there is not a single album that I predominantly dislike with the exception of one song. The one that comes close to what you describe would be ASITHOS, I remember when I first listened to it, I thought it was too strange to enjoy, the only track I admired right from the start was "Walls" because of its energy and John's screaming :lol:/> But already shortly afterwards I found more parts and tracks to enjoy and though it's not one of my favourite albums, I like it too much to only prescind one song as "that one gem".
