i’ve gone through two ‘tapestry’ albums, one 8-track, one cassette and am now seeing if i can destroy a cd through use. possibly the best album ever (except for ‘court & spark’ and any laura nyro, or maybe they’re all the best, i don’t know anymore)

8-TRACKS! There’s something warm and fuzzy about owning music you love in the multiple formats that have been available (and a sign of your age which is not always so warm and fuzzy - for me at least).

this is one of the 45s i inhertied from my grandmother. i know it sounds totally hipster of me but records do sound… better. you can pick up a player for mad cheap!!

I do need to get off my butt and either figure out how to replace the belt on the old turntable I have (also given to me by my aunt and uncle) or buy a new one. I have a problem with broken material possessions.  I have so many that I keep thinking, “but it can be fixed someday!” I hate throwing stuff like that away.  I need an intervention.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
