Well......... :problem:

We already sent 12" Gold Platters out on the Pioneers 10 & 11 Missions which preceded the Voyager missions ....
Now these were phonographs with a needle stylus along with a playing cartridge and including instructions to operate.
These were Analog recordings folks !
Animal sounds,earth sounds like surf and thunder and an assortment of various greetings in 50 different human dialects, along with 115 images selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan and his associates.

Other Humanoids and possibly more exotic life forms could be HUNGRY FOR MORE............

We had better show them our trend in evolution and have a decent selection of LaserDiscs along with a high end audio/visual set up to convey the precious analog they had already been exposed to.
( LEAST THEY FIND DIGITAL UNPALATABLE AND A DISAPPOINTMENT !!! )

So I propose that we set up a grand home entertainment experience in the middle to TYCHO crater for maximum enjoyment.
Perhaps invenio and laserbite34 could help out with the equipment list, technical details and logistics !!!!

Tycho is 4 km deep and 84 km in diameter with a central peak that would be perfect for the proposed site !

Depending on if they are carbon based or even methane based life forms, no alien should be omitted from a fully rounded out LaserDisc experience that they can go home and tell their friends, families, and / or colonies about !!!!

My suggestion would be to include a copy of Dr.Strangelove in the assorted titles to give them fair warning what to expect if they decide to venture forth to Terra for further exploration !

Thank You tomtastic !

Great topic here !

Simple solution is had by adjusting the angle of your shot which can mitigate the glare somewhat.

The real solution is using a tripod and camera with variable aperture settings to reduce the need (or eliminate the need) for a flash.
Check photo sites, these can help with the details in setting up ideal situations to shoot objects.

Good luck with your photos !

Cheers !

Brazen to be certain ....

These people need to be called out and feedback needs to reflect this lack of professional sales ethic ...

Flat out unacceptable, period. Amen ......

I gotta throw a vote in for the PILF-1516 box release of Aliens, Special Edition Box release Directors Cut.
The extended footage totals over 30 minutes of cut scenes that Cameron added for the deluxe box version.

Aliens is one of my all time fav's and in agreement with forper an '80s classic .... (and must for any "franchise" lover of Alien......)

Truth be told I have not experienced PILF-1515, however thanks to this post I will give it a go if providence allows down the road.

Cheers to the membership .....

I can totally relate !

When one completes a transaction and the patron expresses gratitude it rehashes that feeling of finding "that title" for myself as well ..........
Did not contemplate this hobby possibly getting any better until I started dealing internationally. Now I have contacts all over the world !

It is an honour and my privilege to have the membership here support my store all these years since starting circa 2008.
Will take this platform to also say " Big Thank You Everyone ! "
Ebay transactions though mostly non traumatic do not compare to the smooth sailing with the Membership at the LDDB.

Hmmm... the only suggestions I have for dealers is : Over Grade the titles, Invoice in a timely manner, package your titles double boxed w/ LD outside of jacket, and follow up with shipping status updates to include USPS Tracking code for the patrons purposes.
This has been my recipe for a successful feedback score to date !

Great thread John ! Thank you for starting this one !

Nice, how's your Japanese? I've decided to finally learn it properly. After years of university lessons, a year on exchange and years working there I still can't watch a show without subtitles. Pathetic. My weakness is vocab (and laziness). I've started studying JLPT vocab daily with an app and my 1-2 year goal is to watch the entirity of my UC Gundam laserdiscs which span the movies to the 0083 OVAs..right now rewatching the subbed SDF Macross on DVD and picking out and noting SF and military vocab as I go. Should help with Gundam and the stuff I'll watch before that (Zambot 3, Heavy Metal L-Gaim). Basically want to own the LDs and watch every Sunrise show in my lifetime, pretty much the same dream I had since I was 15 years old...


Envious of your ability - Congrats on applying yourself and learning it properly.
I understand very few words is all I can claim. Would love to fulfill a dream and immerse myself in that culture and learn daily through that method.
A very unique culture. Your not too far away Down Under !
Enjoy Macross and all your old movies forper ! Live your dreams brother !

Cheers !

My first posting. Is there anyone, on this Site, living in either Australia or New Zealand who can tell me which Stores have the best Shipping Rates?
Thanks, Garry (Auckland, NZ)



If you order from the states, and the order is under four lbs, then First Class International rates are the best economical way to go.
Takes awhile and no insurance or tracking is in place unless you register.

Japan still offers surface mail which is key for heavy parcels loaded with LaserDiscs.
States stopped surface shipping many years ago so it is air mail or nothing from the U.S.A. .......

Anger and resentment are very much like a deep well.
No obvious limit to how deep it goes until you strike the bottom.

Perhaps medication side effects plays a role, or even dementia creeping in.

He could have repaired his bridge with the admin by contrite steps within reason.
Instead he went the opposite direction.

We make our own bed, (or not) and then we get to sleep in it.

I for one, do miss his humor.
And I miss the pics of his feline companion Mr. Sooty.

If you are ever able to read this laser bite34, miss you mate ! Cheers
