Taper's Comments:

What have these bastards done to my show?

They've changed the artwork, totally lost the significance of the title and performed some nameless fuckup on the audio.

Dime would have insisted on a "contrast clause" and may have rejected a superficial makeover ... Some days are good days.....

Geetarz Comments:

A "tweaked" version of Happy Birthday Auntie Sylvia.

The Urban Dictionary defines a 'tweaker' as:

1. Person who constantly stays up cleaning, washing, organizing, powertooling, sorting or otherwise keeping themself busy doing menial tasks.
2. Someone who constantly makes slight alterations on (usually a very specific) object, i.e. computer, software, automobile, etc.
3. A compulsive liar, thief, or both.
4. A methamphetamine ("tweak"), or other form of speed, addict (who displays all of the above in an obsessive-compulsive manner).

What's the difference between a crackhead and a tweaker? The crackhead will steal your shit and bounce--the tweaker will steal your shit and then help you look for it.

In the audio realm, Geetarz would add an additional definition:

"An annoying fuck-wad with too much time on his hands who constantly and obsessively feels the need to diddle with other people's recordings and muddy the waters of the trading pool, while contributing nothing noteworthy or original"

There are people who do excellent remaster work, in the vein of being archivists who approach the material with respect, always citing clear lineage, and taking care to avoid confusion. These people largely work hand in hand with collectors and tapers, and usually work from primary sources. Talented people like 3BR, Zetti, and Button (not to mention many others) make the collecting world a better place. There are people who do remasters ... then there are "tweakers" ... see definition(s) above!
