costello, that is.

who else is into collecting vinyl?

vinyl_records_250x251.jpg

for the longest time i've been meaning to buy a record player. i saw a really cheap one at aldi, of all places, and figured that i might as well grab it while it was there and if i accumulated enough of a collection to justify it, i'd invest in something better

less than a week later, i've got 34 records, at an average cost of $2.50 each. i've hit up markets and charity shops and collector's dens, and i've managed to get some fantastic music

from iconic 80's stuff

Huey_Lewis_26_The_News_Fore21_CD_co.jpg

to incredible, random compilations

and all sorts of crazy-good music you'd never have otherwise looked twice at

All_27n27_All.jpg

it's an amazingly satisfying way to spend your time, and as long as you've got a few bucks you can come home with a big stack of new (old) music

some of you guys must have some records lying around, tell me about them!

    My girlfriend used to be a DJ so her record collection is massive - even though she sold off hundreds and hundres of records

    Yes I do, but I am not swapping any of this. From my Times Square soundtrack to my Haley Mills 45s, ain't none of it going nowhere.
