Vlayman: “Futile”

Futile 
c. ’14 Vlayman 

You struggled mightily to get things done yer way 
You put it all on the line ‘cuz there was never any other play 
You saw the need for speed and so you went right at it 
You worked and struggled and fought like some kind of addict 

In yer shoes they oughta have to walk a mile, 
Then mebbe they’d realize how yer actions were so 
beautiful and futile 

You gave it everything you tried to wear ’em down 
When they said talk you sang and tried to drown ’em out 
You had a way with words, they came fast and free 
You had your own drummer and you wrote the melody 

In yer place they prob’ly couldn’t smile 
But damn sure they’d realize how yer life was so 
beautiful and futile 

She stood by yer side as you climbed up from the street 
She liked a quick ride and you thought she was just dumb and sweet 
She had a good hide whether she layed down alongside or kneeled 
She seemed so innocent until her collusion was revealed 

In your defense they took you down with treachery and guile 
You couldn’t see how all you did was beautiful and futile 

SOLO 

In your grave they left your hopes and dreams all in a pile 
They don’t see how what they done is just ugly and futile

The Hungry Drunx: “Uptown (I Been) “

Uptown (I Been) 
c. ’14 The Hungry Drunx 

Ooooh 

Ever-thang’s been a little bit funny 
Ever-thang’s always ’bout the money

You say Ever-thang’s gonna work out 
And still the next day comes and yer runnnin’ all around 
That’s just you 

I been up town, 
You know I get around 
I been up town-ow-ow-own, 
I been up town, 
lookin’ upside down 
I been up lookin’ upside down-ow-ow-own. 

Ever-body’s bein’ awful nice 
Ever-body’s knows just what yer like 
They know you 
And Everbody’s sayin’ its gonna work out 
And still the next day comes and yer runnnin’ all around 
Y’know it’s true 

I been up town, 
You know I get around 
I been up town-ow-ow-own, 
I been up town, 
lookin’ upside down 
I been up upside down-ow-ow-own. 
” 

Everafter, I’m gonna remember these days 
Everafter no matter what you ever say 
I’ll remember you 
Because Everafter everything work’d out 
Even tho’ the next day came and I left you runnnin’ all around 
That’s was how you do

Vlayman w/ Grankspoine: “To Your Drummer “

To Your Drummer 
c. ’14 Vlayman Produx; derranged by Grankspoine 

She said it was time for me to go 
She said it was time for me to leave 
Well I looked you in the eye 
Because I, I just didn’t want to believe 
And you know, what you said in there 
Well it just wasn’t fair 

And they said it was some kinda abomination 
Even as they couldn’t hide their fascination 
And I looked you in the eye 
Because I, I just didn’t want to believe 
And you know, what you said in there 
Well it just wasn’t fair 

CH: . . You never gave me a chance 
You never even let me try and dance 
To your drummer 

Solo 

And I looked you in the eye 
Because I, I just didn’t want to believe 
And you know, what you said in there 
Well it just wasn’t fair

Follow up on the E-Bog mic scam

If you look at my 3-21-14 post, you’ll see how I received a damage mic from njmusicplace.

Well, they re-listed it on the E-Bog and I was just contacted by another buyer.  Below are some updated posts, (with other poster’s comments omitted, if you sense some lack of continuity.)

Re: shame about the ADK mic

I know! Sad 

Lemme say, I have a bunch of mic’s, even a bunch of the cheaper tube mic’s. 

This thing, opening up the body, it felt like a piece of precision engineering, and looked it, too. 

Very heavy, very close tolerances – a damn shame it’s ruined. 

I wasn’t kidding, I want another. 

But first I gotta get my $ back; UPS to pick-up on Monday.

Re the ADK A6:

Thanks for that, the AA’s are on my list, too. 

Gotta say, that Tc reminded of nothing so much as a nice handgun, in the sense of its engineering. 

I do have a pair of ADK A51 V’s, and really like ’em. I know they are just more Chinese LDC’s, but they seem very nice in their color, equalled mebbe only by the CAD GCLX3000 in that US$100 price range. 

I keep wanting to try ’em on overheads, but drums recording time is so limited I default to the AT4040’s, (what are 3x the price, but only just as nice on vox), what are “faster” and somehow more “solid” and “even”.

BTW, just saw, the seller, njmusicplace, just re-listed this mic, stating, “This unit is used and in great condition. There are some minor blemishes on the microphone, but it looks almost brand new. The clamp on mount on the end of the goose neck to the pop filter has a bit of rust on it.(See pictures for actual condition)”. 

That’s an outright fucking lie – don’t get ripped off by these scumbags!

———————————–

Posted: Sun 30.03.14, 

Besides the aggro and the money tie-up and the fact that the arse questioned my honesty, my return went smooth also. 

I guess I was lucky, as the seller clearly has terrible ethics. 

Caveat emptor and alla that, but, as a guy with a long memory, I wonder where all the people who attacked me in defense of the poor, misunderstood sellers in my other Ebay posts are now (see here, and here, for example). Twisted Evil 

Also, BTW, I tried to “report” the listing, but the drop-down-box choices don’t apply to the condition of the item, so I posted here that no one I correspond with – even the “defenders” – gets bit.
———————————–

Posted: Mon 31.03.14,

Ha! Imagine that! 

My negative feedback of the seller has disappeared, altho’ my page says “feedback left” so I can’t leave it again, and the seller is back to 100%. 

Is that because of the refund? 

Or because they are a “power seller” or whatever BS title applies? 

BEWARE! Evil or Very Mad

The most aggravating part for me. or one of them, is that whenever I run into these situations, I am inevitably directly, or (as here) impliedly called a “scammer” when it is the seller who is dishonest. And, of course, E-Bay allows it. 

I guess that’s the E-Bay way, part of the culture of it, along with that “politics” thing. 

I have to say, tho’, I’m very surprised about Banjo-Mart. You might consider trying to contact whatever headquarters they have with a complaint. Where E-Bay is comprised of a company coordinating sales from individual sellers, Banjo-Mart is the seller itself (assuming a non-consignment situation), and therefore is directly answerable to any lawsuit or law enforcement action and it directly impacts their reputation- they probably wouldn’t dig the actions of a rogue store manager …

So they ended up relisting it and selling it for $249; “This unit is used and in great condition. There are some minor blemishes on the microphone, but it looks almost brand new.”, my fat arse. Rolling Eyes

Re: contact by next buyer/victim

Sad 

I did not check the capsule; I asked permission to of the seller when I saw the problem after taking off the body cover. I received a rather condescending response about the damage I could do if I opened it, “only a expert” and alla that kinda shite. 

A expert like theirs, eh? Rolling Eyes 

If you look above, I relate how I gave ’em a bad review and it was deleted from the E-bog. 

I don’t know what you can do about this except publish your experience around the forums (this is my only forum where someone might buy it …) 

FWIW, and even while they gave my money back, I was willing to give ’em the benefit of the doubt that they got stuck and didn’t know better when they sold it to me – especially in view of their dooshy denials, as I didn’t think anyone would have the gall … 

But now? 

I think they are scum-bag crooks trying to lay off a mic with a serious latent defect while not disclosing same. 

As far as dealing with the seller? I’d use a 10′ pole and a handgun, me. Twisted Evil 

njmusicplace, folks – BEWARE. Evil or Very Mad 

Good luck to you, and obviously, if I can help …
