Inspired by a friend's fb post/photo- a visual admittance that he was listening to a Christmas album on Nov 30th . . . an album which happened to be of the modern-day vinyl variety. Random phrase runs through my head: "Don't make me go all vinyl on your ass". "Vinyl" as in "Medieval". Get it? Reason for thought: unknown.
The subject then turns to a deeper contemplation regarding the current resurge/popularity of modern day vinyl records. Some might say the concept has gone "viral". But purists know in their hearts that they have been charmed beyond return, lured by the spinning hum, filtered sound, and oversized album cover which will bring hours of artistic analyzation amongst a group of friends.
Yes, my music loving friend, you have "Gone Vinyl" and as long as the turntable spins, so will your love for the tangible record.
Save the 12 pack for your "Cloud Collection". This experience calls for the good stuff. You know, the kind of beer that comes in a 750 ml bottle . . .
