Music Monday

As many of you know, I spin tunes at the Nip Club almost every Thursday and for Frugaldougal's Pawpawties. For the first time ever, you can now see my record collection. What are records, you may ask, and I don't blame you. They're pieces of black—well some of them are pretty colors—pieces of plastic that play music. You need something called a turntable with a stylus to play them on. Although they snap, crackle and pop, they're coming back into fashion because people think they sound better than CDs. We have a lot of records which are esoteric and were never put on CD so we're doing that ourselves. The photo just shows our 33 1/3 rpm records; we also have four shelves of 45 rpm records, which are 7" rather than 12".

What do I want to listen to?

For a decade or so, the spines on the jackets of these records were only used as a scratching post but now I'm spinning them weekly for your enjoyment. I don't usually do requests but I've played a few. I play a lot of local bands that you may not have heard of but you may find you enjoy like Winter Hours, Subway Surfers, Nervus Rex, Orphan Trains, etc. Some are new and some are oldies; all are fun and great to dance to. I guarantee you'll move your feet while I'm in the booth. Stop on by—hashtag #nipclub—Thursday nights at 8 pm EST. Unfortunately, this week I won't be there due to a prior engagement. Stop by anyway because all of the dj's at the Nip Club are great.

  2. Absolutely love the new blog design. And we absolutely love records. CDs are great, but there's nothing quite like putting some vinyl on the turntable. xoxo

  3. That is some collection! My human has a few of those things - she lost a bunch of them for some reason she won't explain to me, but many of the ones she still has have scratch marks from the kitty before me.

  5. you have a wonderful collection!!!!
    I am such an idiot!
    My first husband DJ'd weddings/parties etc and when we divorced I gave him my ENTIRE collection of albums (which were classics! Beatles, Eagles, sooooo many artists because I like so many different types of music but The Beatles were always one of my faves).....
    We had a local band in Cleveland called "The Michael Stanley Band" that I just loved as well as Alex Bevan...you may want to see if you can get your paws on some of their tuneage!!

  7. Wow! Look at all those records and how little they make you look! How do you get up to the shelves? You must be very good at making music and popular, too! I wish you were going to be at the nip club!

  9. Dad keeps promising mom he will digitize all her albums before they stop making needles to play them. He hasn't started yet but he promises a lot. BOL! I gotta get to #nipclub. Mom works late most Thursdays so it's hard for us.

  10. I love your new layout for your blog. Very cool.

    Mom has lots of records, too. She wants to put them on the computer, but the turntable's broken and she can't find a place to fix it.

    Happy music making. Hey, that would have made a good blog for the Anipal photo blog hop. Last Sunday's theme was music, and I don't think it's changed yet.
