If/when you go back, I know someone who would pay for a recording of "The Grand Tour" found on that service.

Seriously. Let me know.


Hmm
Have 3 days left on my membership
Just checked Amazon, Grand tour not out for a couple more months
Premier Nov 18

Yeah, was saying if you re-up for your show months from now.

I know it's a while away. Just figured with your other interests, ripping and mailing media must be second nature. If you wanted to do it for some scratch, that offer is there =)
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

Yes, I was a huge participant in audio taping shows and trading by mail
Now its upload to a website or download from a website via bit torrent
I still do this a ton but audio only
I listen to music in my car or riding my bike or walking.
I never download or rip videos of concerts therefore not a video expert. Just an audio files expert.
Recording audio is easy, set up my mics on a mic stand high in the air and wander around, Somebody bumps my stand, no biggie, mics still pointed generally in the right direction.
Video taping, got to constantly monitor. No wandering. If you do and somebody bumps your stuff, may ends up taping the side stage
I still record live concerts but audio only. Never video.
Watching a video of a concert overall is pretty boring in my opinion.

I read that Amazon has 43% of
all online sales now. Ebay, Walmart,
and whatever the 3rd one is, have
33% combined.

I have a buying record going back
to 1999 on Amazon. I checked it
the other day for the first time.
There are some years I was buying
2 items a week. It's interesting
looking at what I bought 19 years
ago and remembering what I was
into then.

Just got a DVD from them yesterday
and ordered an indoor/outdoor thermo.
It never ends..,

It's like having your own external memory bank

It's almost like a diary of sorts,
with the books and DVD's.

Amazon is tightening the squeeze.
pay for amazon prime membership and then pay for prime pantry shipping as well.

Prices no longer as low as they were.

It seems that they are still not making any money off sales, it all comes from Prime fees and now Whole Foods. The stock is insanely overpriced. Things have to give.
