Pinned toot

I wish I could bottle the extremely powerful "It's summer and everything's right with the world" vibe I get when I hear 1970s-80s cock rock blasting from a rolled down car window

I am not exaggerating when I say that I have probably listened to Sugar's "Copper Blue" from start to finish a minimum of several hundred times, and it's still capable of hitting me right in the gut. It's so goddamn good.

If it's possible to have a crush on somebody's voice, I've got a big one on Roland Orzabal's. First time I heard this in a friend's dorm room I was like 👀

Maybe a little bit of a crush on his 1993 hair too.

(I hadn't really absorbed Tears For Fears' 80s output mostly thanks to my older brother's "If it's not 70s guitar rock or instrumental jazz fusion it's crap" tastes during that decade)

Talked my self out of buying a new turntable after realizing that it's been a shockingly long time since I replaced the belt on my old Garrard, so I'm going to try that first. Went ahead and ordered a new cartridge while I was at it; the "1,000 hours" rule of thumb feels like an impossible sum of time, but if I back-of-napkin my listening habits, it's probably about time

Billy Preston’s Outta Space just came on the grocery store PA and I am simply vibing

It's only Steely Dan it comes from the Steely region of Interzone; otherwise, it's just Sparkling Dan :df: :wb:

I was poking around looking for recordings of "In a Shanty In Old Shanty Town" (it's this week's ) and discovered the Sunset Serenaders' album "Hokum, Blues and Ballads" which is really nice. (If you dig R. Crumb's Cheap Suit Serenaders, you'll probably like this. It's not as raucous but it's got similar energy.)

Yep, still pretty sure this is my favorite Deep Purple song of many favorite Deep Purple songs

Another one of the great live albums of the 1970s, with one of the most iconic covers (that die cut! the colors! those mustaches!)

Albums that sound like their cover art and vice versa (NSFW cartoonish boobs in the Frank Frazetta/Boris Vallejo tradition)

If any of y'all freaks need any Firewire cables, specifically 4-pin and 6-pin varieties in different combinations, let this freak, me, know so I can get rid of the ones I've been hauling around for over a decade.
