So today I decided to buy a record that I already own on an impulse. It was the Beatles/1967-1970 a.k.a. the Blue Album. I bought it because it was a different pressing than the one I already own (the one I already owned was an Apple original pressing, this was a mid-late 70’s Capitol pressing). Once I got it home I noticed there was writing on the labels of the records, this of course is not uncommon. One side read, “L.F.” whereas the other side read, “Leslie Forbes”. I typically like when people write on the labels because it shows history. After inspecting it a little more, I noticed that there was something inside the sleeve of the record jacket. My hopes were through the roof wondering what it could be. I’ve had everything from newspaper clippings to rolling papers stuck inside albums. When I pulled it out I realized that it was a little note with Santa on it. Obviously this was a Christmas present. On the other side it read, “To Leslie. From Paul Ringo John and George”. Apparently Leslie received this record for Christmas and felt the note was sentimental. I wonder how old she was when she got it? I wonder why she kept it with the record? I wonder why she gave the record away? I wonder if she’d be happy to know that the record AND the note are going to a good home…

I’m really in the mood to talk about guitars or records.

Rip the veins from human necks until they’re wet with life 

Rip the veins from human necks until they’re wet with life 

being a record collector and going to college has it’s downfalls.

It turns out you can’t get laid from them AND it’s a bitch transporting them.

And HAN shot first.

This is my favorite 45 Rpm single that I own.
I listen to it only once a month, so I keep the excitement of playing it going for as long as I can.

I’m eating a considerable amount of bagels, drinking lots of tea, listening to records, and working on art. I feel like this will be the rest of my life for me. I’m okay with this.

Except I’ll eventually need my super hot brunette model wife to touch me and stuff, but I can wait a few years.

I bought this record from a nice old couple a few years ago that actually got to see Buddy Holly and the Crickets back in ‘58 on one of their first dates! We talked a little and I ended up over-paying for the record, but I wasn’t complaining. I wonder what they are up to now…

Now spinning my first pressing Anomaly album! Super rare, I play it a few times a year. The other times I play the cd, which has kick-ass packaging. Much like the vinyl.
