It's finally here...I started my own website!

Hey guys, it's in its infancy stages, very early on but I got it up and running. It will focus on keeping the music we love alive (much like HH does) but it will have collection information, rare items listed with pics & product info, mostly consisting of Japan pressings (there are many & collectors can agree I'm sure that they are always being incorrectly listed as 1st pressings when they may not be). I have only begun to set up the pages but the links that are on there are working.

 

I want to emphasize that I barely know what I am doing and would appreciate any info. Is there anything about it that bugs you? What are some things you wish were on a music website that you can't find?

 

I plan on adding a forum but again, it will consist mostly about Japan cd collectors (nerds) although I would not discount any topic.

 

I am in no way trying to replace HH (that would be a joke), but I do want there to be an outlet that is just a little different. I could never afford what Dan has to do to keep this site up & running (God bless Dan) but I will have actual front, back & cd pictures to go along with a small bit of info. It will be more of a reference site more than anything. I will not be posting music news or anything of that sort.

 

I don't know where it will all lead but it will take time to build and I am happy as a puppy with two peckers to have something I can do that involves my first love...music.

 

Thanks for looking guys & I always appreciate the feedback, good & bad.

 

Please welcome, the small but hopefully cool some day (drum roll)

Thanks for visiting \m/

It's OK except for the cd list. The list is very heavy on the eye, too compact and maybe the wrong background colour as well. Some more spaces and some playing around with fonting in between would do wonders...

 

Okey dokey, let me see what I can do!

Mate - site looks good, obviously you've got some tweaking to do with layout, etc, but nice work. I'm not techy, so it looks about approximately 10 million times better than anything I could do. Only thing is, as you say yourself on the 'about' page, it's not clear yet what the point of it is ...

 

Looking forward to seeing the site develop.

Really dig the site man, but the all CAPS on the CD list, combined with the small font make it brutal on the eyes.

 

Also, this background pic that you're using on some of the pages:

while cool as hell on its own, makes the background really "busy" and hard to enjoy the main content.

 

For example, I think your rare CD page would benefit from dropping the background pic, and going with the standard grey background you use on your main page. Just my opinion; would be interested in what others think.

 

But again, diggin' the site, and as far as content, you're definitely rockin' in the right direction! :banger:

Mike, I appreciate the comments and will adjust it. I agree with all you said. I am trying like hell to get my collection uploaded. Also, a blog, forum and buy N sell page coming as well.

 

It's been a lot of fun for me. Thanks again for the feedback!

Fully agree to the things above and that's an awesome background!

The 'busy' background colours could be dimmed a bit (like the background on Dan's main site), it really draws your attention away from the things that matters, the cd pictures.

But hey, who the hell am I to give you advice Jarred. I couldn't do the things you do even if my life depended on it. I wish I could... :(

I really suck when it comes to computer stuff.

 

Anyway, great website. Keep it up!

Updated 01/21/2013

 

-Background image had been dimmed down & faded out so as to not blind you. More focus is now on the product but in line with keeping the cool ass background.

-More Titles have been added over the last two days, around 30 or so with many more to come.

-A Sell & trade tab has been added with detailed pics of the front, back & cd. The more obscure, nicer items also have a full song for each album located on the picture of the cd. I still have to rip a few of them but several already have them. There is also a sale list at the bottom of the page.

-Got rid of the cheesy looking letters on the band pages.

 

Coming soon:

 

-Featured artist complete with audio clip & review

-Rare track of the week audio clip

-Japan Bonus track of the week

 

Very cool stuff coming, a little bit at a time. I hope the changes made help out. More feedback is welcomed as well!

 

Thanks for the input & I hope you keep checking it out!

I love it! Love the concept & content so far. Though I have 2 suggestions... The toolbar or whatever you call that at the top of the main page - I think the print should be a little larger & in a brighter color so as to make clicking a page to where you wanna go easier. Also I like what you're doing with the rare cd pics but in my mind it would make more sense to have the info for each cd above its pic & not below it. It would seem more natural for me. As I scrolled down the page I got confused about which cd I was reading about.

 

Just my .02

 

Either way I really like it. You should be proud :)

    • No atheist denies love is a thing. It has chemicals that make it happen but that closeness between human beings is clearly a thing and it feels good. It's also an essential part of pair bonding and the raising of the next generation.  You believe in life after death. I do too. I look at it every time I see my children. My part of the cycle of life ends when I stop puffing though.   
    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...
