Discs that can be used to configure AccurateRip on a new drive

By , 2016-12-17 16:11

Was just setting up EAC to use a new external Blu-Ray drive, and had some difficulty finding eligible key discs – discs that have only one pressing and are known to the AccurateRip database.

EAC needs 3 discs to correctly confirm the drive’s offset.

The discs I used were:

  • Hey Rosetta! – Seeds | Sonic Records 2 000018
  • Hey Ocean! – IS | Nettwerk 0 6700 30972 2 2
  • Taylor Swift – 1989 D.L.X (Deluxe) | Big Machine Records/Universal Music Canada BMRB0550E

Saving here for future reference to avoid me having to go through a pile of CDs next time I need to calibrate EAC for a new drive.

Arcade Fire presents Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

I was watching the MuchMusic countdown and saw this awesome video. (yes, MuchMusic. They still exist, and still play music. I’m really loving having TV again… more on that later)

Arcade Fire presents Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) – YouTube.

I’m not absolutely sure, but it seems the whole video was shot in a suburb of MontrĂ©al, Lasalle, which is where my parents lived for a while. Mom, Dad, recognize anything?

The empty photo studio is at 1465, boul Shevchenko.

How Canadian of me to get all excited to see a place in Canada on TV.

Anyway, cool video, great song. Watch it.
