TVD's Fall Vinyl Giveaways Week


One of the smarter moves the music industry’s made where vinyl is concerned is to realize that those who appreciate the medium also appreciate convenience, which is why we’ve applauded labels such as Dischord or Merge who’ve made available a full Mp3 download of a LP with purchase.

So, you’ve got to hand it to FACTORY 25 who taken the medium one step beyond with another unique pairing: DVD and vinyl combos.

Quoting their website now, “High and low concept films and music docs have a home at FACTORY 25, the new Brooklyn-based independent film + music label. Beginning in September 2009, FACTORY 25 will release films, theatrically, digitally, and on DVD, and will curate provocative limited edition DVD/Vinyl combination packages. Specializing in indie niche projects, FACTORY 25 is committed to delivering films and music in perfect analog or digital quality on DVD and vinyl in aesthetically interesting packaging.”

We’re pleased to offer two FACTORY 25 releases during our Fall Vinyl Giveaways Week and the first of the pair is ‘Damon and Naomi: 1001 Nights.’



Synopsis: 1001 Nights is a comprehensive anthology of the ethereal Damon and Naomi with videos and live performances by the duo from 2001 through 2009. This road trip through the decade includes live footage of Damon and Naomi and friends they met up with along the way including: Ghost, The Clientele and Richard Youngs. Damon and Naomi curated 1001 Nights and included a rare live version of “Blue Thunder,” a song originally performed by their legendary first band Galaxie 500.

Featuring: Damon & Naomi, Michio Kurihara, The Clientele, Ghost, Richard Youngs, Rheinallt H. Rowlands, Thom Revolver, Bhob Rainey, Masaki Batoh and Helena Espvall


The drill is the same as yesterday's contest; plead your case in the comments to this post to have and own ‘Damon and Naomi: 1001 Nights’ and we'll choose the most compelling this Saturday (11/14) and we'll ship to the winner on Monday (11/16.) You can feel free to enter any of our giveaways this week but you can only win ONE LP. Fair's fair, right?

Personally, It'd be great to win vinyl, because I'm trying to get a collection going. I'm real young & I've been trying to build off of my parents collection which isn't much. I'm definitely trying to get more of a collection so I can actually have something in good condition to enjoy when I get my turntable for Christmas. I hope I'm writing this comment in the right section. Well, anyways that why I would like to win the album.

Seeing music and musicians evolve is, normally, a frightening, amazing, wonderful (did I mention frightening?) process. You trust that artists will push the envelope without falling over the edge. That their music will continue to draw you in, and that their efforts will seem effortless. Good artists remind you of why you fell in love with them in the first place, gut checking you every once in with subtle artistry that you only hear when you're really listening. Damon & Naomi are GOOD artists. Their music is like a warm wave. They'll change instruments and tones, but they keep coming with music that's honest and beautiful. I'd really like to have their whole catalog so that I can continue to be sucker punched.

I first discovered Galaxie 500 when I was DJing at a college radio station in Las Vegas in the 90's. I was just discovering a whole new world of dreamy indie-pop music, having previously been a die-hard punk rocker. Galaxie 500 (and later Damon and Naomi), along with Built to Spill shaped the future of my continually expanding musical tastes. I would absolutely LOVE to have "1001 Nights." It would be a perfect companion piece to my always growing vinyl collection, not to mention that face that the LP would get regular spins at my weekely DJ night in Hollywood.

2020.05.23酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容八大世界的融資邏輯在性交易不合法、陪侍業遊走於法律邊緣的情況下,酒店公關與我在酒店上班的日子性工作者常被屏除在社會安全網與信用制度外,幾乎不可能和銀行等金融機構借貸,辦房貸、車貸時需要人頭,這時就會向恩客或經紀人求援。經紀人除了確保酒店打工小姐們工作時的安全、陪上下班跑店接送、情緒低落時灌心靈雞湯外,也經常是她們的債主甚至信用保證人,要放貸酒店上班-酒店兼職-兼差如何達成人生的第一桶金必須自己口袋夠深,也有不少經紀人酒店兼差不是一個複雜的工作環境?被借錢借到倒。「我會借出去的款項,基本上都是我覺得沒有還也還好的數目,當然也要評估妹仔有沒有這個產值,正妹優先。」一名酒店經紀這樣談自己的借錢哲學職場須知 【酒店PT 】:「一個相貌普通的妹仔開口就要借個十幾萬,是不會有正常人想理她的,何況有的妹仔連上一任經紀人的錢都沒還完呢!」在顏值與人頭都能變現的世界,經紀人除了用各種管道開發有意進八大淘金的新血,有的也會從同行手中「洗妹」,像洗牌一樣把屬意的小姐洗到自己旗下,或是用妹海戰術賺錢。一個酒店小姐的經紀約平均交易價格是三萬元,有債務的則另議前後任經紀的償還比例,越弱勢的就會面臨越嚴苛的勞動條件。在肺炎疫情餘波未平、政府宣布八大全面歇業之際,手上銀彈多的經紀能「危機入市」,然而,洗妹要不犯江湖忌諱是一門大學問,擋人財路如殺人父母,事小的道歉包個紅包做結,大者是會動拳腳刀槍來拼命的。酒店、養生館為了店內秩序,禁止小姐們交流薪資與經紀人抽成比例,也難防耳語傳聞「唉呦你的公司怎麼這麼苛?我一節就拿多少多少說!」「你這麼正,怎麼在這邊上不好?你經紀人都不想辦法的噢?」「我可以幫你介紹某某,某某會幫你如此這般……」知道水深的老鳥不是幾句甜言蜜語過個水就洗得動,但在無限期停業的政策推一把後,頓失生計的八大基層會衍生多少糾紛、呆帳與治安問題?這些問題又會如何反饋到「光明社會」的這一面,恐怕不是此一時能夠斷言的。八大因疫情停業並不會讓情慾需求消失,一名應召站幹部說,「如果大家能滿足在家裡打手槍,那一開始就不會來了。」除了多與嫖客喇賽疫情的五四三,他依舊周休一日每天值班十二小時,整理新的花名冊,戮力為客人仲介各式各樣的溫柔。站在道德的相對高點,質疑他人的職業選擇、想像做八大一定日進斗金、要求紓困補助都是貪婪很容易,深入了解不同族群的苦衷、共同承擔困境永遠是最艱難的,希望在這波尚無配套的八大歇業命令後,大家可以思考:膝反射式的傲慢是否和瘟疫一樣致命?

2020.11.05酒店小姐的上班經驗與酒店上班技巧一般人誤以為當酒店工作公關酒量一定要很好,其實90%的客人是來應酬的(如招待廠商談生意)。並非找酒店打工小姐拼酒的,(況且酒錢也不便宜啊.酒店內販售的酒比外面貴不少)而是男生們把酒言歡時,【酒店小姐】【酒店公關】只要在旁當忠實的聽眾,當客人傾聽的對象,酒店兼差提供他們情緒出口的平台(如你在哪當兵的啊.男生最少屁2小時以上!!)而你只要打扮美美的.在旁附和就行,至於喝酒的機會 沒有想像的多 我們會教導如何閃酒(我們網站都有專文提到)或排換資深小姐來應付酒客桌,其實還是可以上酒客桌的,若以柔剋剛讓客人不灌妳酒,客人自己喝的盡興,而我們仍然可以全身而退(我們網站有專文提到)而打扮不外乎就是衣、髮、裝.我們合作的店家都有專屬化妝師和髮型師,至於服裝的問題,我們都會提供專業意見。若有治裝費的問題.我們有禮服店/便服店可以配合 省去治裝的煩惱。
