Today is a record day for sure, until it’s a Godzilla day. The more specific elements of my record collection’s sorting are currently on my plate, which means lots of listening (yay!). So far it was hitting up my introductory Whigs album (In the Dark), which I had not yet listened to my copy on […]Read More You Run for Cover in the Heat, Why Don’t They…
I’ve been organizing my music the past few days, and listening to records (finally!) with a focus on the ones I haven’t listened to yet (of course!), and yesterday I put on Al Kooper’s You Never Really Know Who Your Friends Are, which I bought in Atlanta last year in October (if that sounds bad, […]Read More I’ll Never Let You Down
I just finished Color Me Impressed: A Film about the Replacements and I don’t know what to think. A lot of people are angry that it includes absolutely nothing of their music whatsoever (it really doesn’t) and that Paul, Tommy, Chris, Slim (I think this was filmed long enough ago?), even Peter Jesepersen does not appear […]Read More It’s too late to turn back, here we go

I also don’t have the experience of seeing the Whigs up close and frighteningly personal: vehicular troubles meant they had to cancel–but that did mean I walked away […]Read More Ah, What Words?
It had to come by mail, but here, indeed, is my RSD holy grail. Woo!Read More Belatedly, but…!
And here we have the record haul from Record Store Day: The top row is all new, but not exclusive. The next row is all used, the next is all exclusives, as is the final and then the 10″s. The 7″s are thus: new, exclusive, used. There’s one other used single that I forgot to […]Read More
So, after work Friday, I headed all the way out to Cary (it’s ~3hrs, for the unfamiliar) to hang out with Kyle and sleep on his couch to go out for Record Store Day in an area that actually has record stores in quantity. I stopped at the Winston-Salem FYE (no, I’m not kidding) on the […]Read More Briefly, though, on the (RS)day:
