Collections in the garage

Mother Nature is mad, the president still looks sad (but he's oh so articulate), and I have a ridiculously minute (my newt) problem: whether/how to transfer my excellent record collection that's been moldering in the garage  to MP3. To transfer to MP3 my excellent record collection that has been melting, baking, fossilizing in the deep subconscious morass that is our garage ...whoops, editorial moment. Supposedly the sound of MP3 is questionable, to the fine-tuned ear, but I can't hear that well anyway, so pulling the usb turntable out of the box would be one step farther toward whittling collections and possessions.

Sound of MP3 is fine. That audiofile theorizing is so 20th Century. Time to move on and get your whole life's music on a silicon wafer. (Did I ever tell you about the time I sat next to the German guy who invented MP3s?

I love the look and sound of an mp3. I like the whole tiny package. But I keep my vinyl in the house and I actually play it from time to time. We just spent Sunday afternoon listening to Bob Lucas's “The Dancer Inside You”.
