Wow, that's pretty neat looking. Vinyl is so much more photogenic than CDs.

Re: 60s/70s musicians hanging out with mum and da

This is so awesome. Clapton is sitting there looking bored, just like he acts in concert. Zappa is bummed because now everyone will see that he's not the weird one compared to his parents, who painted their living room purple! (purple? really? who has a purple living room?) The Jackson kids are all ...

The next column (#0003) is written and awaiting the return of my laptop from the Apple Store to be posted. Unfortunately, the photos are on that machine, which needed to be repaired.

Hopefully this will go live tomorrow. More Asia!

Re: Whitney Houston beats Bobby Brown to Death

I've never pretended not to like Whitney Houston, but I like crap music and am not afraid to admit it. That said, I've never owned a single Whitney Houston recording. I will stop and listen to "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" any time it is on the radio though. And if I recall correctly, last summer I ...

Re: The official My Vinyl Solution thread...

So I did this estimating by measuring, like with a tape measure, not counting. But I think I have about a thousand rock records that are currently filed as "keepers." I have another 100 or so jazz. And then there's maybe 300 out in the garage, many of which have been deemed discards, but I'm sure if...
