Well then, I've never heard of any opiate cd not having Gaping Lotus on it.  I wonder if it was not on an import cd. hmmm....

Are you talking about the cd or vinyl release?  If you are talking about vinyl, they had it set up so depending on what groove you started on, you may or may not hear Gaping Lotus.  It was always on there, but a hidden track of sorts.  Pretty cool trick for vinyl.


 ya, your talking about the double groove on the Vinyl album. thats not what im talking about. some pressings of the CD didnt have gaping lotus experiance and some did. i forget the reason but i think it was an error on some...cant remember though right now. i should look it up.

 hey badkitty, i tried to send you a Pm but i dont think you can anymore on here? the new changes that have happened time and again are pissing me off!! i messed up my first post and thats why i didnt quote your message. cant delete it so i had to just do that... im gonna look up the cd thing..one sec!

 

 ok! i give up! i cant find anything on the reasons why 'gaping lotus' is on some cds and not on others. in fact i cant even find anything on it at all! but someone on here says their cd doesnt have it and i know i heard about this years ago. the sands of time have washed it away even on the internet!

 

 someone will prob help us out here. i cant find anything..discogs.com has a ton of opiate releases listed but im not looking thru all that..i did a bit and they all had it listed..but im sure will find out the deal on this.

Heard back from merch today with a final answer...im not getting the album. Pretty disappointed. They said I would be the first to get one if one became available,  but they're sold out! I collect this type of stuff and feel pretty let down about the situation. Ill copy and paste the response later today.  What a buzzkill!!


Well if it makes you feel better you aren't the only one. My fears were correct, I heard this today:

That was an itemized receipt. No there is no charge or authorization hold in the amount of $156.99 for order #78xxx. I even checked the gateway receipt and it has an initial authorization hold for $7.00 and nothing else. And there can only be 1 order#78xxx so if it initial held $156.99 it would show it in the transaction history for that order. I will submit your case to my boss and we will see what he has to say.I will get back to you as soon as i hear any word from my boss.

I sure hope something positive comes from this.

Well, it's not really an "album" per-say but I can see if I can create an album on the imageshack server

Ordered 3-26.  Got an order confirmation via email right after purchase.

No shipping confirmation email (some get them, some do not...?)

Item has yet to arrive as of 4-14-13

In DFW I am.

Sad.

 

Anyone figure out the SIM card/USB thingy yet?

Yea, the card has to be put in upside down from the way you'd normally put in a USB drive. If you put it in then your computer should tell you that you've inserted a blank drive & it'll show up that way. I thought there would be artwork on the actual drive itself (in the form of a set of files) but there wasn't and so I'm not sure if maybe only some of them included artwork on the drive itself or what but in any event, turn the thing upside down and see if you can get it to work.

 

The damn thing is so flimsy that I'll NEVER use it for anything so long as I live because it is so easy to break. It will just go into the Tool memorabilia collection as far as I'm concerned

Dude they did their little pre-authorization on mine and then my PayPal MasterCard statement said that the charge had "expired" and I almost DIED! Also, there's no way to change your address from the address you have on file when you FIRST become a member of TA but they were kind enough to change the address for me and I don't know how the charge just "expired" but I e-mailed them about that and gave them permission to run the card again to secure my order and they did and I was able to get my copy really quickly thanks to somebody that knows how to do their job over there...

 

(hint hint if you check your credit card/bank card statement, there's a telephone # you can actually call and reach the tool merch store if nobody ever responds to your e-mails! I was too scared to try and use it but if anybody's goin into withdrawals not getting their order, that may be an avenue to take...)

Changing the address for your TA profile 101.

Sign in to TA.

Select your TA member name at the top left of the screen to view your profile.

Select "Settings."

Select "Account."

Update your address.

Select "Update account."

 

 
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

 thanks blakster for the HQ scans of Opiate! i didnt think it would show up this soon so your efforts to do that are nice. so the usb stick is crap? they go on sale all the time around here for 10 bucks for the 16 gig ones.. u think they could of not cheaped out on that and bought half decent ones. 150 bucks my ass! thats lame!

 and their is only one stereooptic picture that comes with this release? thought their would of been more but then again it would be too much like 10k so maybe its better its only one. not bad. anyone try to view the scan of that picture with the glasses ? its really hard to do on a computer. i cant get the images to cross over so its 3D... and i did it with the album in a few seconds just fine so i know i can do it. but on a computer screen its really hard to do! for me anyway. havent got it yet...

 

 thanks!!!

Did you set your PC to "View Hidden Files" when viewing the drive?

 

Also, ordered mine through public sale on the 26th.  Still processing, got charged on 4/4.  I'm guessing it will go out this week, as TA buyers got first dibs.  It being a holiday today in MA just adds to the torture!

I am not a TA member so I didn't use an account to buy the package.  I used a guest account (since I have only purchased from TB once or twice) so I'm not sure I can log-on to see the status of my order. 

 

Guess I'll just wait the remainder of this week, then I'll flip shit if there isn't a package, or at least a shipped confirmation email.

 

I just find it weird that they had the picture of all the packages going out for shipment two weeks ago and those were only TA orders.

 

The sales were only separated by 3 days so I figured that the shipments would only be separated by 3 days.  That is in a perfect world though...

Here was the email I received from merch today:
"I believe there was a glitch in our automated emailing system because no packages were shipped before 4/02/2013. We didnt have them until April 1st because the band members were a little behind on signing all 5000 copies. Our systems show that your order hasn't been shipped yet. So we will notify you via email with your packages tracking info as soon as it has been shipped. We apologize for the delays

 ok, with blaksters scans i was finally able to view the stereo optic picture with my 10k album! the reason i was having such a hard time was i didnt have it zoomed out enough! so if anyone has problems just make sure its the same size as the album photos. u just gotta zoom out a few times or so and its perfect! a tad blurry compared to real paper of course cause on a comp its not the same but for poor people like me its awesome to at least have that!

 

 thank you blakster!!!

You do not have to be a TA member to have an account in the store.
