anyone else read the theory that Bran is The Night King? It kinda makes sense.

Havent read that one, did read this one https://www.wired.com/2016/06/crazy-game-thrones-theory-ill-bet-right/
About how Arya is actually dead, and the Waif is wearing her face and acting as Arya. Not sure the motive behind being Arya all the time, Take over Winterfell? He states that since it was dark we cant confirm the Waif was killed and that could of been someone else's face she put up on the wall. That doesnt really follow with her emotions though; when she found out Jon was the King of the North and she bolted up there.

Also, no.

When will we stop wasting our money on rebuilding Afghanistan? We must rebuild our country first.

From 2012:


It is time to get out of Afghanistan. We are building roads and schools for people that hate us. It is not in our national interests.
Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 27, 2012 


84% of US troops wounded & 70% of our brave men & women killed in Afghanistan have all come under Obama. Time to get out of there.
Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2012 


From 2013:


We have wasted an enormous amount of blood and treasure in Afghanistan. Their government has zero appreciation. Let's get out!
Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2013 


I agree with Pres. Obama on Afghanistan. We should have a speedy withdrawal. Why should we keep wasting our money -- rebuild the U.S.!
Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 14, 2013 


Do not allow our very stupid leaders to sign a deal that keeps us in Afghanistan through 2024-with all costs by U.S.A. MAKE AMERICA GREAT!

Yeah Vol 1 has always been around, I've got a UK R&S of that one. 

Vol 2 was impossible to find before the reissue in 2012 or so.

Yeah, looks like another 2017 RE.
Actually, I think most of his catalog just got a RE.
Still need Come to Daddy.

Apparently the 1972 REs are mastered from the CDs?

Didn't realize that was the case, fucking lame. 
oh fuck that. Maybe I was looking at older pressings then. Cause they were like $70+ on eBay  for 85-92

Love Vol. 1.
Those are easy to find, tho.
Grab them both from Amoeba and use the 15% code to get them $55 shipped.
I guess maybe it was just Christmas time then? I'm also not a vinyl guru like y'all haha. Shit was expensive everywhere I looked.  I ended up just getting my dad's local shop (which ended up being expensive)

I have been thinking of getting a turntable in the near future. What would you guys suggest? I don't mind spending a little bit. I was thinking just a belt driven one? Is that a good  call if I'll just be listening? I know it has more to do with the internal wiring quality/cart... But some suggestions would be cool.

Personally I'm a Technics 1200 guy, but if you never dj there are much better turntables out there in terms of sound quality. 

I dunno though, with belt drives it's just one more part that can break and I think that they can stretch out a little bit over time so that you don't notice it at first. 
I mean I know those are the shit for sure. But is gear driven what most hi-fi tables use? I honestly wouldn't be opposed to getting something a little cheaper and rewiring everything. I did that to my dad's one year for his birthday years ago. It ended up sounding pretty good actually

Most high end turntables are belt driven, but there are definitely other high end direct drive tables in addition to the 1200.  Regas are a notable example.

Also worth noting while I'm here, We're headin down for a week in October for a wedding. 10/18-24

Po-Boy fest is happening that Sunday.

Is that so? Hmmm, I was actually looking at doing a trip somewhere that weekend of the 20-23rd myself....paugtoberfest, round 2?  :crazy:

No way I'm headed to NOLA in October - got a wedding in Maine at the end of the month and we're planning to spend a whole week up there. Have fun, tho!

Where in Maine?

Wedding is Portland... or just outside, but we are staying in Portland. The week before we plan to head up the coast. Camden, Bar Harbor, etc.
