    turntable.jpg Got my turntable and speakers (AR-XB and Dynaco A35s) out of storage for the first time in many years, fired it up with some old vinyl, it's knocking me out with memories. If any of you have old vinyl albums (that's back when an album was a record) let me know. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida baby! Great afternoon.

    Our friends son-in-law did some work as a DJ years ago. Anyway we're all sitting around talking about how focused he is on vinyl. I hadn't played mine in years and offered to give the small collection up. Faster than the blink of an eye he stopped by the house and snapped up all the 'albums'. Seemed to know every artist and was stoked. Weren't some of those records used as frisbees during college lunacy?

    Been collecting vinyl since high school. Definitely been a resurgence in the past decade or so which is cool.

    We need more brick and mortar record stores vs. discogs and eBay though. Digging and searching is the fun part.

    It's a shame that brick and mortar stores are mostly a bygone era. Some of my fondest college memories involve walking from campus to "Town and Campus Records" downtown to root through the used albums and hopefully pick up something. Sometimes you'd find real gems, other times not... but I don't think we ever left empty handed. It would take all afternoon, but it was always worth it to score some new music. (I'm talking CDs, not vinyl... but there's still a lot of soul lost when you're not physically opening a package and getting that whole new-album experience.)
