A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

i haven't purchased music in ages. my donations here have become my music purchases. although a chain called FYE has used vinyl and i was holding janis ians first on verve and todd rundgren 'todd' in my hands for about 20 minutes before i put them back
Avatar 10:08am

trouble got obvious skills in french. seriously.

Dale: yikes. I'm buying fewer and fewer CDs and vinyl, even.
Here and there, though. FYE I found was a bit expensive,
like Sam Goody's of old but better selection. I'm not even sure if the LI ones are still going...I think a few. They're ok.

I just got the Velvets WH deluxe and M Feldman CD Aki Takahashi cause...I needed to own the genuine item of those. Otherwise....forget it.

I also love that I can get certain box sets nowadays cheap used...whereas, in the 1990s...forget it. I got The Jam box set for $30 2 yrs. ago, at some local shoppe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12am

most vinyl is one or two ninety nine. not bad, but they are sealed so you can't see condition. usually i hold something, put it down and come home and hear it on youtube and am glad i didn't bother.

I still need that Janis Ian first reissue...gotta get that one on CD at least. That's well worth owning in any form. I know I was doing a fair amount of vinyl restore here on the PC but I have slacked off a lot. And I don't own a really high end table.
Avatar 10:14am
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- how many discs in that Jam box - ?? I suppose I could websearch...
- Would we call the blue up top 'Azure' - ? I was thinking 'Cornflower' for that kinda blue w/ slightest grey - but most seem to think that brighter w/ purple tones...

may have to drop out for a while folks...back a bit later if so...need to get storm prepped hehe I guess....whatever that means. oh the Jam box set: 5 CDs of pure masturbation! plus a nice book. so bloody good!

the Mall haha yeah it's fear inducing usually. Anxiety for me for sure..sometimes. IKEA...be afraid! Anyhoo..i think the CD of that janis ian is better since it was fully restored or remastered in the mid or late 90s or even again recently. I think. Or a good copy of the vinyl for sure, a good table,
and a good preamp or amp...wohooo!

i went to some good Turkish restaurant on UWSide a few years back that was really good, don't recall the name though. It's prob. still there. Really great.

Yes, so the Dusty Springfield track, Mama's Little Girl, sounded like Soulful Strut, so I looked it up, and she has the other song, Am I The Same Girl, that IS Soulful Strut with lyrics, and I'm still not sure I've got all the how-what-which straight.

i grew up in the snowbelt of western ny - lake effect and blizzards were common - why does a few inches of snow close schools and cause the government to shut down?

It's not looking good out der..I'm staying put as much as possible. walk to market is about all I shall do later....

I still don't think they're properly equipped down here in LI and NYC or NE NJ for this type of event... I dunno why not. The last storm here, my building staff did a fairly good job, but the town...not so great on the side roads and things. So it becomes a whole driving hazard mess, and they just are not equipped.. I guess. The highways are another matter.
