So on Saturday, I went out and bought me a shiny new record player, some records and a deluxe edition of Marvin Gaye's, "I Want You".. Every so often I go on these music binges, when I really want to be in my apartment surrounded by new music. I felt like a little kid on Saturday night and Sunday morning, while I played records. Most of the records I bought featured music from the 70s and 80s. They ranged from George Harrison to Lou Rawls, and in all I bought 20 records for under $50. I maintain that there is no better feeling than putting the needle in the record and hearing the scratchy sound of vinyl. I suppose there are better feelings, but I have tunnel vision right now. The Marvin Gaye cd I bought just gave me further insight into what Marvin and Leon Ware were thinking when they wrote and recorded "I Want You".

I was so smitten by my purchases that I didn't do any of the things I originally set out to do. No Josephine Baker exhibit, no Reno 911 movie, no nothing. I have one more weekend to do such things before March Madness comes. Then I get to bore everyone within earshot about college basketball.

And now, from my new Marvin cd: I Want You (vocal and rhythm)

Glad you enjoyed the rest of your weekend. And I remember a time when you told me you thought it would be lonely to be solo and I assured you you were wrong. Here you are not solo, but still enjoying your alone time. I think you are growing up my friend, you are growing up, indeed. I like the new look . . . it looks good on you.
