I want to say Happy Monday, but I feel like I’ll be upsetting the majority if I do. I totally get it, I spent the first half of my morning wondering if my computer was going to implode. Unfortunately it didn’t so now you all have to listen to me talk about things I love for the next five minutes.
Who doesn’t love vinyls? I’ll wait...that’s right...nobody. I figured out that even people who don’t own a record player...LOVE VINYLS. I know why...do you want to know why? You do. It’s the vintage concept. If you think about it, vinyls are kind of the only form of music that have remained a constant throughout generations. I mean even streaming music has changed so much in the last 5-10 years. Vinyls have always been a constant factor. Our grandparents used them, our parents, and now look here we are.
One of my favorite parts of owning a vinyl isn’t so much the music, but more so the ART. I love album covers, I feel like with streaming services they really get put on the backburner. I mean, don’t get me wrong I love Spotify. BUT, I don’t love how now everything is animated. I want to see photographs or graphic art! Give it back to me. With vinyls, you can have that 24/7. Sometimes while the record plays I just sit and stare at the cover...weirdo alert.
Some places even make frames for records. So there really is no excuse not to buy one. You get to look hip and trendy, without having to fork over money for a record player. I mean...it is a good investment though don’t get me wrong.
Right now, my favorite vinyl is The Used splatter one. I mean, not like I could get my hands on it...you guys SOLD THEM OUT. However, I love the look. Lately, vinyls have transitioned from the black to now so many funky colors. I’m obsessed, you know I love funky colors. The Used splatter is almost like a record version of a tie dye shirt...think about it.
So…that’s your short Monday food for thought. Appreciating vinyls. So simple, yet so complex. I remember as a kid going through my grandparents record collection, never thinking I would see the day when I had my own. I mean it almost seemed like we were going to end that era. I’m so glad the hipsters made us hang on.
