intro 

hey friends, this my account for posting the 70s and 80s records (and sometimes some other stuff) that come by my turntable and spotify.

you might know me from my charity playlists at and for my much-publicized devotion to and other smooth music.

discogs in the profile to track the out-of-print, not-streaming stuff I hunt down; spotify for So. Many. Playlists.

i'm a dad and i like dad music. :df:

thinking about switching the ortofon 2m red for a goldring E3 per this review whathifi.com/us/best-buys/acce so if you're in the market for a good entry-level cart for your turntable i'd be happy to part with the red

just ordered this so i can have an extremely obscure steely dan reference at my desk at all times

someday maybe i'll be able to afford their actual product, the most beautiful mixer in the world

Probably the dumbest item I’ll ever own but I love it anyway

in a matter of months i have gone from listening to music on bad studio monitors from the late 2000s to one of those little mini stacks of DAC/preamp/headphone amp

Additionally I am *in talks to acquire* what may be the *only* copy of an Ontario yacht rock album discovered in a warehouse belonging to the recording artist
