If you remember this entry from May of 2007, you'll know that losing my records and my record collection was one of the more devastating consequences of the fire. I had worked my way up to about 100 records, and I was looking forward to making it bigger(that's what she said). So until that point, I had not been motivated to buy a record player, let alone more records. Today, all of that changed.

Linens N Things is having a going-out-of-business sale, and lo and behold, one of things that was 30% off was a record player. I spent some time with my Dad, and when I left his house, I went up there, bought a record player, bought some records, came home smiling, let my lady pick which record she wanted to hear, and cued it up. I think I've smiling ever since. I bought:
1)Cleaning Out My Closet remixes - Eminem
2)Philadelphia Freeway - Freeway
3)Adventures in Time - Dave Brubeck
4)Sly and the Family Stone Greatest Hits - Sly and the Family Stone
5)The Genie - Bob James
6)Rough and Ready - Jeff Beck Group

This matters to no one but me, but I am pumped.

damn man.. that is a loss. But you're back! Good pickups too. I'm building my own vinyl collection, boosted by some good stuff my mother-in-law had.

Lex,
it never made sense to me that they sold record players, but far be it from me to make sense of it.
