  1. Ayyyyyy symbols! It's truly great to see you on here again. Don't be a stranger. A close friend of mine was also diagnosed not too long ago. He had surgery to remove the spot on his lung. Since early winter I think 4 or 5 of my friends have been diagnosed with some form of cancer. I need to get the ball rolling on the new Polaroid book.
  2. God damn dude that sounds like a brutal roller coaster ride of health issues. Glad you're doing better! I will say that I was in really good spirits last summer even when on the oral chemo meds. I think being outside and getting shit done around the house/yard helps keep the mind and body occupied and active. I usually love winter and snow, but this year the cold and (in)voluntary lockdown has tested my mental health. PM me if you want to chat on the side. No pressure.
  3. @One Man BannedThat soundtrack is my fucking jam. Also, the Spawn soundtrack had some incredible songs.
  4. As far as I know (and the attending Doctors) my condition began from acid reflux (GERD) and must have evolved into what is called Barret's esophagus. Essentially, stomach acid eroded the lowest part of the esophagus and cancerous cells grew around the lining. I had not clue this was happening. I rarely ever had heartburn. It wasn't until I had difficulty swallowing food/drink and some intense chest pain that I sought medical advice. At that point it was too late and the cancer had metastasized to other spots (stomach, liver, and lymph nodes). Stage 4 for esophageal adenocarcinoma means surgery
  5. Def looks like it based on the cover. First pressing cover had a sort-of blueish tint to them. Side note: Any Glassjaw fans out there? I was able to snag a pre-order for a recent repress of their Coloring Book EP. It comes as three rings, 7", 10", and 12"
  6. My initial hope for this thread was to start an overarching dialog about cancer and for people to share their experiences (personal, family, or friends). Unfortunately it seems to have devolved into me checking in every so often as proof of my being alive. I came back to 12oz to reconnect with a lot of you guys because I remember how supportive/chill everyone was, despite never meeting most of you in person. Ironically, I share more on here than I do on Instagram or Facebook (because fuck those sites). When something inevitable does happen to me I am sure @jbrshmonsterwould be one
  7. Same. I have floor tickets to 4 out of 5 MSG shows. Hoping the tour won't be canceled outright. Been waiting to see them again since 2008 (Lollapalooza). I saw the NYC Rock The Bells shows back in 2007. @jbrshmonsterwas there too. I remember signing up for their mailing list back in the early 90s and getting those free promo 7"s. Inside Out is still fucking incredible. I've always been hoping Zack would reunite with them again and play some shows. First pressing, 1992? Looks like it from the cover. Such an amazing story beh
  8. I'm always stoked to see RATM in anyones collection! For years I've been trying to find every single variant of the self-titled album. Most of them are color bootlegs. Sorry to hear about your friend. Looks like he had a lot of great stuff and it's awesome you can live vicariously through what he collected. Music will always be a welcome distraction from the bullshit around us. I've cut back on collecting for the most part. For a while I was buying anything that looked interesting then I would listen to it once and never again. Mostly I keep an eye out for albums I like
  9. Sup. Still kicking here. Had a routine CT scan the other day, just waiting for results. I'm still on the IV chemo meds, but handling the side effects a little better. I finally qualify to sign up for COVID vaccination with the comorbidites phase. It will be a relief to have an extra step of protection. Besides all that I am waiting for warmer weather to get some shit done outside.
  10. My Discogs profile. If you're only selling a few items maybe try Reddit VinylCollectors. You can bypass the additional fees you would pay selling through Discogs. The recommended payment method is PayPal Goods & Services, to protect the buyer and the seller. I believe PayPal's fee is about 3% (versus Discogs fee of 8%). Also, If you haven't already, I would recommend keeping your entire collection up to date on Discogs. Make sure you add your newest acquisitions once a month. I do it for insurance purposes. How long have you been a VMP member? I started around 2016, but drop
  11. In theory, yes, but be aware that some older systems may only have two wires (Red & White) and need a third (Common) wire in order to actually charge the new device. If you install the new device and your heater keeps clicking on and off that means the device can't charge properly and you need a third wire. Learned this the hard way when I disassembled my old thermostat and found just two wires, installed a Nest and nothing but clicking. Had to buy a zone control relay, isolation relay, and 50' of new wire to convert from 2 wires to 3. Paid an electrician to actually install ev
  12. Hey all. I'm still here. The cancer is still very much present. I was feeling good during the summer thanks to the weather and keeping myself occupied around the house/yard. In the summer I was on oral chemo meds and they had zero side effects. Unfortunately, my most recent CT scan showed some new growth. With the recent downgrade in health I am back to intravenous meds and I forgot how much they knock you on your ass. I wish I were an optimist, but there's no surviving this. Nothing I've made recently is worthy of a standalone thread. Not b
