"Disc Ring"


HighNDryRulz

Recommended Posts

What I am talking about is the mark left on the inserts when a seller ships his/her CDs/inserts to you without jewel cases. The CD is placed inside the inserts for "protection," leaving the perfect impression of a CD on the front, back or both inserts. I have had this happen so many times, and it seems to be a common practice. Personally, it drives me up a wall. :angry2:

 

Does anyone else feel this way? :unsure:

Fuckin' oath it shits me !!!!

It happens all the time to me hence the reason I always want it shipped in the jewel case.

But even lately 75% of those sent in jewel cases, the bloody ring that holds the disc in place gets broken in transit and you can hear the disc sliding around and the broken bits rattling everywhere usually causing some form of scratching or marking to the disc :angry2:

Even the last order I got from CD Baby consisting of the Dana Fuchs DVD and live CD, they put the CD which is shipped in the jewel case, on top of the DVD case with nothing in between them and when it fuckin' got here, the DVD case was cracked and the paperwork cover of the DVD has an inprint {and a bad one} of the CD jewel case which will be permanent and it even caused a small tear in it as well !!!!!

That really fuckin' pissed me off :angry2:

It can be annoying, I guess, but it rarely leads to a real issue for me. I know Secondspin and AOR heaven both do it and I've never really had cause for alarm. That said, I much prefer it when people put the CDs seperate to the booklets as that avoids the issue all together and is just as easy to pack. And this is how other traders usually do it too. Me personally, I pretty much only ever deal in CD case free purchases/trades. Living in Australia if you want cases everytime you either want to be a millionaire or you'll have to half your CD purchases. :)

It happens to me a lot with cds from SwapaCD. I'm getting more and more people sending me cds inside the booklets with no other packaging. When we ship Wishing Well orders we always make sure to put the inserts in a plastic bag (or wrap them in plastic wrap) after we wrap the discs in Kleenex. It's something we're always concerned about.

I like it so much, sometimes I'll ship my perfect condition inserts to myself just so they can get that impression as well.

 

:rofl2:

In all seriousness, I don't like that all that much, but I'm more like Terry, and not a serious collector. :)

I keep thinking along the same lines every time I see this thread title. Maybe we're just the childish ones? ;)

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
