Happy New Year!
I trust you all ate and/or drank too much, and if you've got anything about you, it's continued. I find that you can keep it up as long as you pepper your weeks with strenuous excercise. A worthy trade off in my opinion.
I hope you got what you wanted from Santa on his birthday, he's such a generous bearded drunk.
I'm fortunate to be able to buy a present for the wonderful woman that lives in my flat, that is also gong to give me joy. I bought Led Zeppelin IV on record, not a first issue, but I wanted us to be able to play it, lots, and not worry about depreciation. In fact, I hope we wear it out. It will be making an appearance at the record club next week.
The Record Club has reached it's third evening. The first two were extremely fun. I'm not a record officinado per say, but I like music, and have been practising turntatblism for over ten years, so I like records a lot.
I was worried that I would be out of my depth and that I'd be surrounded by;
- Tweed jackets,
- Flasks of weak lemon drink,
- (be bored to death).
However, there were;
- Tweed jackets,
- Fruit based drinks,
- Some pipes,
- but mostly an amazingly diverse group of people with wildly varying music tastes.
The first one started with a record that my father gave me, from his New Wave Of British Heavy Metal days, the mighty Storm of Steel by Soldier, it ended with World in Motion (I'll keep the owners identity silent, just in case) He plays bass)).
I've bought several records as a result of the tracks other people played and I think vice-versa is true too.
So, get in touch if you want to come down to play some records, listen to some records, drink some drink, talk some talk and possibly, just possibly, have the best night of your life.
