Yesterday, while cleaning out the garage, I found an old Kindle crammed inside a box. I had a Kindle many years ago, when they first came out, but stopped it using not long after I had it. I plugged the Kindle in and was surprised to see it working again. After charging, my wife noticed … Continue reading Reunited And It Feels So Good…The Kindle Edition.
Right before Christmas, I found a Technics SL-Q303 turntable listed on Facebook Market for just $115. The only issue was a cracked corner on the rear of the cover which didn’t bother me at all. I immediately picked it up and it sat for a few weeks unused while we were busy for the holidays. … Continue reading I Love My Technics SL-Q303 Turntable
Today I sold the above 45 by Bernard Wright for $11 on my Discogs store. I found this 45 in Cincinnati during the holidays at an antique store. There was a small stack of 1980s R&B picture sleeve 45s for $1 each and I grabbed them all. I was surprised to see this 45 fetching … Continue reading Who Do You Love
We started watching Pretend It’s a City, the new limited series on Netflix from Martin Scorcese about Fran Lebowitz. We like it so much we’re only watching two episodes a night to make it last as long as possible (it’s seven episodes long). In episode two, Fran discusses her friendship with legendary jazz bassist, Charles … Continue reading Fran’s Jazz
Thanks to a round of Enneagram training last year, I found myself scored as a Seven. I found this recently researching the struggles of Sevens… “On the negative side, when Sevens are unhealthy, they may dabble in many skills without becoming particularly good at any of them. Because they become bored rather quickly, they lack … Continue reading Distracted Seven
Yesterday was a busy news day given the second impeachment of Donald Trump, something that’s never happened to a United States President before. The news came in around 4pm our time and I pretty much couldn’t focus on anything else but the news. But that wasn’t the only big news if you are a fan … Continue reading Can James Harden Make a Big 3 Successful?
Last night I was cleaning and listening to a stack of 45s for sale in my Discogs store. I listened to Edwin Starr’s classic, War, which always reminds of this Seinfeld scene: I flipped the 45 over and also enjoyed the B-side track, He Who Picks a Rose. This 45 was released in 1970 but … Continue reading He Who Picks A Rose
I bought a lot of records in 2020. I felt it was a great way to support record stores and independent artists while we were all in the middle of a pandemic. In December we remodeled the living room and I realized I’m running out of space for new records. I have three boxes full … Continue reading Sound Ancestors
I spent most of the weekend adding records for sale to my Discogs store. I set a goal to get over 500 albums listed for sale and I was able to meet that goal this weekend. Whenever I add more albums to the store, it results in more sales. The photo above shows most of … Continue reading Record Sales
Over the holidays I spent a lot of time adding inventory to my Discogs store. For those of you who do not know about Discogs, it’s an online database that allows record collectors like me to keep track of albums we own in the hopes we won’t buy them again out in the wild. (Trust … Continue reading Shop My Discogs Store
