Ink for the music junkie.
I would hate to dust this lamp, but it’s so cool.
These decorating ideas are awesome. Especially framing the LP covers and using the speaker as an end table.
The Beatles cake (second one shown) is my favorite.
“I can’t fire them. I hired these guys for three days a week and they just started showing up every day. That was four years ago.”
This quote is from one of my favorite movies. Any guesses? Here’s a funny clip from the movie.
I would love to have this in my house. I know a couple of people who have one and it still works.
If you live near the Des Moines, Iowa area stop in this store. Something for everyone. I even bought the CD that the store clerk was playing over the intercom for the shop. After some serious begging of course. I wanted to play in for the drive home.
Three facts about me:
1. I collect vinyl (classic & new).
2. I am a vegetarian (since 1985).
3. I love bacon (in reference to vinyl).
If there are any fellow vinyl collectors out there who are reading this, you’ll know exactly what I’m speaking of. When I say that I love bacon, I’m referring to the sounds you hear when an old record is playing. They resemble a pan of frying bacon.
A couple of weeks ago I was in Best Buy and saw that they carry vinyl. Cool, but then I read the manufacturer label and it said………….the classics, digitally remastered for excellent sound quality. The album cost $19.99. The same record is in the used record shop up the street for $15.00. I will be going back for the used one. Not because it’s cheaper, because I want the original version. I want the bacon!
Alright, back to fact #2. The garden is growing so fast. I’m compiling my photos to share the process with you.
P.S. One more fact. It is Tuesday, but still feels like a Monday.
As a music enthusiast I look forward to this program every year. The one night that I can and will sit still for 3 1/2 hours straight. Take note because it won’t happen again this year, seriously. No computer at my side, only snacks, soda, and my three dogs. Oh, and of course I had the surround sound blasting to get the effect like I was there….almost worked:)
An eclectic mix of musicians who collaborated from all genres of music. Some stepped outside of their box with their performances. And there were those who included the inspiration of fellow artists in their set.
As Dave Grohl stated, “This shows the human element of making music is what’s important.” “It’s about what goes on in your heart and what goes on in your head.” “Real music is not about sounding perfect.”
Female artists with boy problems turned their misfortune into their best work. Heartwarming tributes to those that the music industry has lost. And then there was Adele…….need I say more?
Oh wait, the three sleeping dogs. My “fur-kids” find music to be very soothing. When there is music on they are out cold in roughly 2 minutes. So, they slept the whole 3 1/2 hours that the show was on. They woke up a couple of times as I clapped loudly or when my phone rang, let out a huge sigh, and then went back to sleep. And now that the show is over, complete mayhem as been fully restored in the house. Three barking dogs fighting over couch space.
Sunday evening well spent!
