Viva la Vinyl

I have just made an important decision that very well could change my life forever (overstatement). I have bought my first vinyl album.

"Why?" "Where?" "How?" you ask. I'll tell you. I was at Best Buy buying new ear-phones for my ipod since my cat, Giuseppe, has now chewed through two pairs. On my way to the check-out counter, I walked by the new release CDs on a whim and it was there that I noticed, above the CDs, a giant Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends album. Why was it giant? Because it is made for record players instead of compact disc players. And yes, I do have a record player.

I've already mentioned the new Coldplay album in an earlier post. I had already purchased it from iTunes, but I just could not resist buying this. It was only twenty bucks (and it includes a CD version as well, although I didn't know this when I purchased it). What an album it is! And what an album to buy for your landmark first vinyl! Amazing!

I don't know what this means for my future... but I certainly don't think it can be anything but good.


  1. that is pretty darn cool. needless to say i'm obsessed with that album and every song on it.

  2. records are cool. especially neil diamond and chicago records. they rock.
