Yes. I've been rediscovering music in my stack of vinyl records and sharing here. I recently blew the dust off my old phonograph and got it back in working order (sort of - the spring on the cover gave up so I have to hold it open when I change or flip a record). I have it piped through my old amplifier/receiver and both to standalone speakers and my desktop PC (for a little analog-digital conversion and archival purpose). They still sound great to me ... but then again I suffer from hearing loss due to too many years working without hearing protection (it wasn't a thing back then).

Didn't someone post about Vinyl records last year?

Vinyl sales made more than downloads last week

didn't want to make a new post ... just threw it here.

I've got nine vinyl LPs on the way right now. I'm definitely part of the vinyl renaissance! What's in the mail, you ask? Well...

I have a wishlist longer than my...arm, so it's going to be a fun process getting all the vinyl I want.

I'm just in one of those moods ... and this music suits it perfectly.  100% synthesized and old ... but yet remains just as expressive as ever at the same time.  This here is some fine "lay on the couch, close your eyes, and just soak it in" music.

Heard this song on the radio the other day and it caught my ear so I went to find out more about the band.  Turns out that cute little girl from Jim Carreys Grinch is grown up (well, more grown up) and in a rock band.  Go figure.

Tom Petty is well represented on my playlists. But today it's been nothing but him. Shocked last night, then a glimmer of hope before we went to bed, only to find out he died after all this morning. The news opened with it. :( Colleague of mine, an avid guitar player, didn't know. He was on his way to the copier when another colleague of mine and I were discussing it at the coffee table. Stopped dead in his tracks: "What did you say?! What happened to Tom Petty?" He froze when we told him, tears in his eyes. When he eventually started walkign again: "Fuck fuck fuck, goddammit." And that's a man in his sixties eh...
