    Tom Waits is right-- he's always right-- but that quote of his needs a comma.

    I was more thrown by Jack White's irregular capitalization!

    Now I really want to buy some vinyl. I think they have a weird Tintin album of some kind at the local tea shop, maybe next week I'll see if it's a million won...

    I finally got a turn table.

    I have no idea what the-- what is it? Tracking weight? I have no idea what that is.

    Also, everything skips all the time. I feel like it shouldn't, but I have no frame of reference in this matter.

    if it's skipping, you'll want to up the tracking weight

    basically it should be calibrated: at zero the tonearm and cartridge should be hovering parallel to the disc but not touching it. each stylus will have its own optimal tracking weight, but set it to around 2 and you should be good to go

    Oh, thanks.

    When I first started reading up on turn tables, I basically went into a catatonic trance. I woke up covered in vomit and liner notes.

    Too many words that don't mean anything too fast.

    I love record stores. I used to have a few favorites back home. There was a pretty solid local chain and two or three independent stores that were really cool. One of them has free experimental/noise shows every Sunday.

    I'll probably get a record player this summer though, that'd be nice

    Unless you're buying that one Tijuana Brass album for the cover.

    Because everyone should own that album.

    Is this... is this a thing? That people do?

    I don't understand. I don't understand at all.

    In other news, I'm relistening to that 'Just Like a Girl' album I bought in Japan and Debbie Harry and New Order are engaging in something fucking insane. I'm so glad I bought this.

    Why would you buy vinyls if you didn't have the means to play them?

    Spillers Records are in my neighbourhood. I expect they'll be doing something, might go down later today.

    I swung by Reckless in Chicago and picked up the limited RSD release of the Mountain Goats' Life of the World to Come DVD

    Saw a pretty decent band play there too but I didn't catch their name

    For a college town I'd expect there to be a lot more record stores here, but there's only one shitty one that's a headshop too and the employees are dicks and it's overpriced. I think they're participating in RSD but I don't know

    RSD haul from Park Ave in Orlando:

    Passion Pit - Little Secrets 7'
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Skeletons 7'
    Phoenix - Fences 12' (its pink too)
    TV on the Radio - Dear Science 12' (fucking finally i've been waiting 2 years for this to be reprinted)
    Modest Mouse - The Moon and Antarctica 2x12'

    And my friend got herself the RSD Tegan and Sara 7'

    total was around $54 bucks for my stuff (the modest mouse lp was 28 bucks, but ill probably never see it printed again)

    All in all, a pretty sweet haul

    no it's not

    buying new music and reissues on vinyl is really expensive. but that's daft anyway. i don't see the point of buying a new record on vinyl that was produced and mastered digitally and sounds just as good on cd

    but there is so much fantastic old music out there practically being given away because nobody listens to records anymore and it's been forgotten. all you need is patience to dig and a gambling spirit. though admittedly mobile access to wikipedia helps too
