The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 12:05 AM

Okay, so there's the rule about no buying or selling on the forum, but I see nothing against giving stuff away. That being the case, I'm thinking you guys should have first shot at these discs I'm getting rid of. I don't even need money to cover shipping. The only thing I ask is that if you decide you don't want to keep them either, you put them up again in this thread for other board members. PM me about the ones you're interested in, and if any aren't spoken for in a few days, I'll post again. If this somehow violates a rule I don't see, I'll be happy to comply with a shutdown, though it struck me as a good way for other people to get value out of purchases I just don't care enough about to keep.

HD DVD:

Dawn of the Dead (Unrated Director's Cut)
Rio Bravo
Troy (Director's Cut)
The World's Fastest Indian


Blu-ray Disc:

Norah Jones - Come Away With Me


DVD-Audio:

Dar Williams - The Beauty of the Rain
Dar Williams - The Green World
Foo Fighters - One By One


Music DVD:

12 Girls Band - Live From Shanghai

Barenaked Ladies - Barelaked Nadies
Barenaked Ladies - Barenaked in America: Stunt Tour
Diana Krall - Live in Paris

Gwen Stefani - Harajuku Lovers Live


DVD:

Mallrats (Collector's Edition)
Shaun of the Dead
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

I'll be deciding on a couple more HD DVDs this weekend.

Thanks for being generous with your discs.

My wife might want the Norah Jones one. I'll have to check with her tomrorow. She has the regular CD, but maybe she'll understand why I like my QS8's so much even that much better if she had it in SACD and could listen in full surround.

I like what I've heard of Beck and Foo Fighters, but don't have any of their discs. Do these work as regular CD's as well?

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 12:40 AM

The Foo Fighters and Beck DVD-Audio discs will play as normal DVDs, but not as CDs. I'll earmark the Norah Jones SACD for you until you get back to me.

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 01:17 AM

I've got my name down for the Troy HD-DVD and the Beach Boys DVD-Audio.

Let us know what other HD-DVDs you may be getting rid of...

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 01:46 AM

Charles, I'm very interested in the Dire Straits SACD!

By the way, do you have any cars you might be interested in getting rid of? ;\)

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 01:50 AM

Ha ha ha, yeah, there are some, but I don't own any of them.

Sorry, but the Dire Straits disc is already spoken for. It wasn't cbk, if that eases the pain.

Ya know I still wake up in the dead of night in a cold sweat.. Or maybe its tears. Its always the same dream. One minute Im watching the fedex guy pull up with a pair of M3's and the next theres this huge explosion and and its like im burning and falling to peices of ash. Not unlike that scene in terminator. Im just waiting for my reoccuring dream of the fedex guy pulling up with my computer speakers to start coming back.

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 11:22 AM

This is an interesting idea. Iíve got dozens of SD disks that I can get rid of and around 250 HD/BR disks that Iíve bought, would 'loan out', but would eventually like back. Iím just thinking off the cuff, but would anyone be interested some sort of disk trading thing, or would that be more of a PITA than what itís worth??

I'll speak for the Hellboy BR CV. I've got in SD, but not HD yet.

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 12:00 PM

mdrew, there used to be several sites set up for the trading of CDs and DVDs over the years. I even participated in a few. They would charge a small "brokerage" fee to do so. I don't know if any of them are still around today. While they couldn't make a "go" of it, they had a huge number of customers. We would be talking about a smaller group here.

I have my list of DVDs out on a site called DVDSpot (thanks SirQuack for the link years ago)... People can view your movies, and the system can even keep track of what movied you loaned out, who you loaned them to and when.

It might be worth trying. I know that I have a slew of DVDs that just sit, waiting to be watched by someone.

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 12:02 PM

I was just reading the Avia II thread and thinking that calibration discs would be perfect for the temporary loan idea. \:\)
Posted by: nickbuol

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 12:07 PM

Crazy! I was thinking the same thing. It would be nice to be able to borrow calibration discs. Heck it would be nice to borrow an SPL meter (hint hint SirQuack!)

Put me on the list for Norah Jones if no one else takes it.
This is a great idea. I've got a dozen or so dvds in a box that were going away- even if it took a dumpster to do it, I'll have to make my own list.
Posted by: Zarak

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 01:52 PM

Norah is yours. My wife said she just doesn't listen to music on the speakers so doesn't think she'd get much use out of it, so I'd rather it go to someone that will get use out of it.

I was thinking that having this thread might become fairly cumbersome over time. It might be cool to be able to maintain an unwanted disc list on our upcoming user pages. Of course, then you'd need to know who was taking part, so there would need to be a way to join the sharing group or something. Is this kind of thing possible with the new software?

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 10/27/07 06:52 PM

Like I said, they're welcome to stop me. I don't see the harm. I'm restricting it to movies, music and games, and I'm not looking for any money to change hands. It's not even trading. It's giving, so there's no one who can get burned.
Posted by: SirQuack

It wasn't bad at all. Only $40 for 12 packages, 3 of which were to Canada. I was bracing myself for much worse. \:\) Considering everything I get out of this forum, that's nothing. I just hope I put all of the right discs in the right packages. I was very careful when I was arranging them all, but I didn't double-check, which I should have. If any of you get the wrong stuff, there must have been someone messing with the packages in the night, I swear.

Hey CV, like others have mentioned it's very nice of you to do this.

I recently passed on my XBox to my brother and he was interested in any of the games you have left. I'll send you a PM and thank you again for your generosity.

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 11/13/07 03:25 AM

Oh, hey, there's something I didn't think to put on the list. I didn't even look at my normal CDs because when I first made the list, I was only looking at multichannel discs and high-definition movies. I figured those would be cooler to pass on to other members, but then regular DVDs and games crept in. However, I think this CD could probably find a home quickly:

Mark Knopfler - The Ragpicker's Dream

I know several people use this as a reference disc. I do like the sound quality, but I just can't seem to get into his music, so this is also up for grabs.

Steve, my thoughts are this may be the perfect time for you and your spouse to go out on your own and offer value that would make YOU feel more fulfilled.
Posted by: Kruncher

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 11/13/07 10:51 PM

Received the discs today Charles. Thank you Sir! Top notch.

@Steve: Before I started my current job, I was off work for the first and only time in my 20 year career - for eight months!! - so I completely understand what you're feeling. Man, I was freaking out. New baby, new house, bills...

But as trite as it sounds (and yes I heard it too many times back then) when one door closes another opens. My current job (over five years now) is the best I've had (most days...). Hopefully the same will happen for both you and your wife.

BTW, at my last job, both my wife and I worked in the same department (no we didn't meet there) and all 15 of the office staff lost their jobs at once.

Hang it there. It WILL get better.

Hey Steve-
I hadn't caught your post either! Sorry to hear of the current situation, but keep a positive attitude!

I haven't walked a mile in those shoes, but it somehow always seems to work out for the better in the long run. Sometimes you just need that "distance perspective" before you're aware of it! \:\)

Mine was waiting for me at work when I got back from vacation. Thanks again for being so generous. And, yes, the graininess was faithfully reproduced in all its glory. Still a classic, though. My dad is a huge Wayne fan and my mom used to play tennis with Ricky.

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 01/19/08 12:03 AM

Okay, same deal as before. Be greedy and claim many so my shipping costs are less, don't give me grief for having bought the movies in the first place (VERY important), and if you decide you don't need to keep them as well, put them back in the pool for people at this message board.

DVD:

Billy Madison (Special Edition)
The Good Girl
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Monty Python's Meaning of Life (Two-Disc Special Edition)
Old School (Unrated)
Once Upon a Time in the West (Special Collector's Edition)
The Princess and the Warrior
Reservoir Dogs (Ten Years Special Edition)
Run Lola Run
The Squid and the Whale


Blu-ray Disc:

Bridge to Terabithia
Deja Vu
Eight Below
Flyboys
The Host
Oldboy
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
The Queen
Reign of Fire
Rocky
Shoot 'Em Up


HD DVD:

16 Blocks
Assault on Precinct 13
Backdraft
Born on the Fourth of July
Breach
Casino
The Deer Hunter
The Dirty Dozen
Dune
Evan Almighty
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Field of Dreams
The Getaway (1972)
Goodfellas
The Heartbreak Kid
Hollywoodland
The Hurricane
Lethal Weapon
Scent of a Woman
Serenity
The Sting
Training Day
Tremors


I don't imagine I'll be doing this again any time soon. I ended up with a lot of movies I was unsure I'd like just because they were in high-definition and on sale. The newness of high-definition is starting to wear off slightly, and I think I'll start to focus my purchases more on the stuff I really want. But it was fun to jump into HD headfirst. Anyway, peruse the list and make your claim, either in PM or both in this thread and in PM. Posting here helps others to know whether they've been beaten to a particular item or not, but PM means you don't have to expose yourself to the same shame as me. \:\)

I'll ship them sometime in February. That's as specific as I can be right now, just because I don't feel like committing to a specific date.

Anyway, good luck!

I just need your address in a PM. I don't ask that anyone pay for any part of it, so no one gets burned if an item is lost in the mail, and then I'm not using the Axiom Audio message board for any monetary transactions, even if it's just shipping costs.

Re: The (Not So) Great Disc Giveaway Thread - 01/19/08 12:01 PM

I think this is what's left. If I missed one that you claimed, remind me so I can take it off the list. Also, for those of you who PMed me your address, can you also PM me in the same PM thread what you are getting, just so I don't have to refer to both this thread and the PM when I put the packages together? That would be great. Thanks!

Oh, and speaking of hot sauce, has anyone tried Rickey's hot sauce?

I'm tempted to get some for my dad, as he likes trying different hot sauces, and also because it's made by the King Kong high score record holder. My dad watched The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters with me, so he would know what it was.

Of course, if it's awful, then I won't bother.

Hey, I just wanted to jump in here and say that I am done with a disc that I got from CV a while back and I am putting it up for a free sending off to someone. It is in great condition and has the full case/booklet with it.

So up for grabs for free is:

DVD-Audio version of:
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

Shoot me a PM and it is yours.

Time for a little spring cleaning....

I don't know who still wants HD DVDs, but I have the following if anyone wants them:

Apollo 13
Army of Darkness
Babel
Battlestar Galactica: Season One
The Kingdom
Payback
Pride & Prejudice


Also, here are some Blu-rays I can part with:

Away We Go
Pushing Daisies: The Complete First Season
Pushing Daisies: The Complete Second Season


Annnnd, as the grand finale, I ordered several copies of Marina and the Diamonds' album, The Family Jewels, so I could give copies to friends. I have two spare copies, so if you would like one, be one of the first two to PM me.

I'm not sure when I will ship these out, but I'll try not to make you wait too long.

Aww, I was looking forward to you cleaning me out. Ha ha. And you're welcome. I figure someone should actually be spinning these discs.
