Product Review: A Record of My Vinyl

When I saw the “A Record of My Vinyl” journal on Blogging For Books I was skeptical. I keep track of my collection in Discogs, which makes it very easy to search on the go. But, sometimes it can be slow if my phone is acting up or my data signal isn’t


Turns Out, I’m A CD Collector

A couple of years ago, I bought a turntable and rediscovered a love of music. The vinyl medium made me sit and listen to an entire record, in a way I hadn’t done since I was in high school. This was the reason, along with realizing how much money I’d spent on

Musical Monday: In Praise of the Ten Year Reissue

I’ve never done one of these “writing prompt” type of posts before, but with my recently refreshed interest in music, Musical Monday seemed appropriate when I saw it pop up in my feed from Something About Esther. Plus, I had a crazy week at work and didn’t get any posts queued up for


Going Analog: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the LP

I have always been unabashedly digital. I stream music. I prefer eBooks. I’d rather download a game from the XBox Marketplace than fuss with a physical disk. And speaking of gaming, I prefer video games to tabletop (sorry guys). After all, we are living in a digital world and I am a
