“Spin! Spin! Spin The Black Circle!”

Long story short:

A little while ago, my trusty and beloved Kenwood stereo died. So, in mourning (and, as Gowan said it best, “out of a deeper hunger” for something on which to play music again as soon as possible), I found an awesome Sony component stereo with a 5CD carousel, double cassette deck and amp – with my iPod Classic in the AUX – and two kick-ass PSB speakers (!) on Kijiji for cheap. Also in the kit: an Akai turntable.

Oh baby. Can I properly express to you how happy it makes me to have vinyl in my life again? This stereo is awesome in many ways, but having the turntable is a special treat, indeed.

I’ve promised myself I won’t go broke buying records, but there are certain ones that just have to come home. And those will be the subject of my new segment on this site, which I have dubbed: Vinyl Siding. Very original, smart-ass, I know.

Anyway. You’ll know this new segment by the lovely little pic of the yellow 45 insert up there on the right. See it there? Pretty, right? I stole that pic outright from Wikipedia. If anyone has a problem with this pic’s presence on this site in some official, sue-my-ass kind of way, please tell me (before you sue my ass) and the pic will come down from this page so fast my head will spin like a record. koffkoff.

Anyway, in the interests of full disclosure, it’s only fair that I review in these pages the records I get, too. And there will be some doozies, my friends. Oh yes.

Hooray for vinyl being in my house again! “Drop the needle!” (thank, Haywire).
