  1. It's neither of those. I don't remember the name of the line, it's made of solid wood, not particle board. That's why it survived disassembly and two house moves.I'll take photos when I get home. The rest of my Ikea purchases were eventually either thrown into trash or I took them to the Salvation Army, but these wall units are well-made.
  2. Stuff You've Found Inside of Used LPs

    Not an LP, but my wife's aunt bought a cheap $10 purse in the local Marshals, when visiting us from Europe. Inside - $1600 in cash... I can only assume that someone bought the purse, went out with it, then returned it, forgetting to take out the money. Pound-foolish indeed.
  3. Unless you have 78's, I would put a rigid divider every linear foot. I tried custom, and nothing betters the Ikea LP shelving for convenience and price-point.
  4. One cd-worth wasn't enough? Or even a 2-cd set? Just curious what would prompt this encyclopedia-sized undertaking.

  6. Record prices back in the day.

    BEER - YES, MUSIC - NO!

    I had no idea that Uruguay's population is only 3.5 million. That puts the performance of their national team on a whole new level for me...remarkable!

    Hazard is joining Real. So is Courtois.

    Football isn't over for the summer yet. The International Champions Cup starts in a couple of days. We went to several matches last summer, and even though it was obvious that some weren't playing at 100% strength, it was still quite enjoyable to watch. Decided to skip it this year, tickets are quite expensive. Will be watching on tv instead. I wonder if Ronaldo will play against Real ... that'll be something. https://www.google.com/search?q=international+champions+cup&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS767US767&oq=international+champions+cup&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.5156j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#sie=lg;/g/11hcnjgfmy;2;/m/0_s0sq4;mt;fp;1

  11. Like Mozart or Bach need to be in some kind of hall of fame to be appreciated. Or Coltrane, Hank...or anyone else. I'm w/Jim. "Back then" the poll winners were alive and these polls mattered, or at least it seems that way to me. This DB Hall of Fame is just a bunch of bullshit. IMHO.
  12. Amazon Prime Day 2018

    So what amazing deals have you grabbed so far? I've never shopped this sale, although I've had Amazon Prime for a decade.
  13. People still read DB, or care about their polls?! I subscribed once 15 years ago, and didn't renew.

    It's Atletico Madrid - they had 4 players in the WC Final.
