Toys / Re: KISS View-Master 3D

you know looking at that thing more closely....one time and I don't remember where...I actually did see that thing.  I forgot it was a "3D" view master...but some kid back in the day had it and I remember looking at it....it was cool...but my tastes were changing at the time...and I didn't care about KISS the way I did a few years earlier.

weird I'd remember that but I remember seeing it, thinking it was cool, but I didn't care that much anymore.

now...well that's a whole different story...I don't have the nostalgia for that exact toy or piece of KISStory....but it's still really damn cool....

hope you can find the view master...I am sure you will if you still have the discs.


damn man...you must have a ton of ****.

wow that's super cool.

good thing is...I bet an old view master would be a LOT easier and cheaper to find than this...so either way you are ahead I'd think.

this has got to be pretty damn rare...now how collectible or desirable it is...who knows...but I'd keep it if I were you anyway.


what's funny is I don't even remember view masters in the 80's....last I remember them was in about 1977....I had some disney ones.....

great score!

yeah never heard of it either....Peaches..

..............

and

not sure why the link is forbidden...it works for me for some strange reason

?

no big deal it's just an old painting and the words Black Sabbath greatest Hits on it.

funny that some 25 years later that artist would be a pretty big influence on my work though...even as a kid my taste was consistent with what I am into now.

nice will have to check it out.

would be interesting to know what years he worked there.....I wonder if I ever stopped in when he was working.  I doubt it....my guess is he was working there probably in 1984 or around then.

maybe you have a firewall or something up...that prevents you from going there.

I always check my links right after I post them...so I'd checked it before I even saw your post and it worked....then I read it didn't work for you...and tried it again and it worked fine.

so I can't really say what the issue is.

I bought all those cd's there and that's where I saw the Stones when they released their full catalog on CD's...I'd go back in forth around the rows (remember they were basically the length of the store...so you'd go waaaaaaay back to the far wall of the shop and then have to turn around to come back down)...debating what I was going to buy because I usually only had enough money for maybe 1 album two tops...so the choice was always torture!

but they absolutely had CD's there....it would have been between 1982-1984.

they even had a Black Sabbath greatest hits record on CD there I'd never seen on vinyl...it had a Bosch painting on the cover.

here's a link to the cover...I remember being in shock when I saw it because one it was on CD and two I'd never even seen the album before.  I didn't get it because I had all the songs already on LP...but the cover was extremely tempting

I was thinking that when I wrote it...not Lars but how "blank tapes and making copies" would somehow effect the record companies.

greed is what ****ed them.  They lied to the public and basically said..."look CD's are only going to be MORE expensive for a little while...they are actually cheaper to make than records"  (which they are) That was their exact words.....and then they proceeded to charge twice as much for them...and even took it as far as charging $16 bucks...$18 and MORE....so all of a sudden you have records that used to cost 7-9 bucks costing 16.....then 18 and up and up...it was a joke and they never did lower the prices.......they all got rich and people finally said **** YOU this is a rip off...albums should be like $10...or we can just get them free.  I am not saying that's right...but look at any riot that happens..you push people far enough...eventually it's going to snap back in your face....they go crazy and just start grabbing anything and everything...it's not about what they really want....they just go nuts and take anything and everything not bolted down.

if they want to play nice which they don't they could probably even this out.

instead they now charge $75 for a double album on vinyl....concert tickets are through the roof, band shirts are like $45-60...with things like hoodies being something like $100/

so they didn't change at all...they took a HUGE hit.    But the greed is still there and they are trying desperately to get back to raking in the cash.

I don't see it happening.

the musicians suffer but you know...the labels did this....they can try and blame the public.  It was their fault.

I guess that's possible...I for sure got them at that "site" I remember so clearly go in and looking through the racks, where they were in the store.....I looked through CD's there tons of times

what year do you think Licorice Pizza closed?

I can totally figure out when I bought the discs...just based on the release dates.

I bought my first CD's there too back in.....man I want to say 1981...no probably 1982.....Rush only had 2 CD's  out at the time (most bands didn't have back catalogs out yet...only their most current records were being put to disc) so my first CD's were Rush ; Moving Pictures and Signals, The Firm, and also Deep Purple Perfect Strangers.....I remember also when the Rolling Stones who I think were the first band to actually go BACK and release older albums...it was actually a very big deal and seemed SO strange at the time/

""whoa you can get an OLD album on CD.""

crazy how times have changed.

I've been to that tower in LA a few times....last time I went would have been back around 1988 or so...I am pretty sure it's long gone.

the tower here was really great....and as chip has already said...if you were a kid growing up in PB during the 70's Licorice Pizza was a lot of fun.  Posters, records, lots of blank tapes so you could make copies of your records....and free licorice..which I don't even like....but the bag was always super cool
