I am a huge fan. Any word on a tour that won't skip Minneapolis? I believe they're working on a new album too.

The Anthology DVD is pretty sweet. It lets you choose one camera angle and watch the whole video from that angle. You can also choose from different remixes of the songs or on some just the lyrics, no music at all. It's a 2 disc DVD.

Sounds of Science Anthology is a great CD set to get if you are into the Beasties. It has a little of everything from License to Ill to Intergallictic and some unreleased stuff in between.

I remember seeing them many years ago playing a Lalapalooza 92 or 93 on Harriet Island, that still goes down as one of the best concerts ever. It was about 95 degrees that day and very very dry, everyone at the show was covered in dirt. Been a huge fan since the beginning, I even have them as an artist alert on my Sirius Radio.

I was there and it was funny that a ton of people left after the beasties were done. Smashing Pumpkins headlined and I rememeber dragging people out from the chain fence in front after getting crushed once people jammed the stage when they came on. That crowd went insane. They rocked! I remember that was after ill communication came out.

Liked them since License when I was 13, and been a fan ever since. Awesome grooves and beats, and great instrumental stuff. Lately though, it's getting to be less about the music. I appreciate the message, but they are getting way too political, especially considering their beginnings. At first they were more punk and anarchist, and now are on a big "vote" tour. I'll still listen and am a big fan, but for the tunes and not the diatribes. I saw them in their Intergalactic tour, but don't think I'll pay to see them again as it will be 20% music, 80% message. I can get that for free on MTV ,if I ever watched it!

On a side note, there was a great jab at them on the Matt Groening show Futurama. The characters (one from the present) went to a concert of theirs 1000 years in the future when they were just living heads in jars being moved around by stagehands dressed in black. Afterwards the guy from the present said to them "I have all 5 of your albums!" to which they replied "That was a thousand years ago. Now we have 8."

They sure do take their time between releases!

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).       
    • Any newcomers in the wheelhouse business at the Ice show in St. Paul?
    • Im sure it's hard to see through your Liberal tears.

    • 70 pages dealing with Donald Trump and I can't find much that says anything on the positive side, of course in the past year and a half he hasn't said much that's been positive either.
