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

thinking about buying this on ebay, a truly normal shirt

Some important acquisitions for arrived today despite the blizzard

This is how I listen to records that my dad would have owned if he hadn’t sold all his records to buy CDs in 1985

amp replaced, wasn’t too bad, just a cable for the speaker itself and a cable for the power LED to contend with, so sub’s back in action. The other piece of kit is the ifi zen DAC for tidal and my own library

New denon receivers come with this origami tripod to hold the room correction mic at ear height and it looks like a fucking estes rocket. It’s absurd

thank you @envgen for finding this atrocity i created two years ago

I demand more information about this German-market cover album produced to promote Disney’s Atlantis

ok!!! i am going to play more records this week!!!! it's rainy!!!!!

most people know "steal away," probably the most shameless "what a fool believes" ripoff ever to crack the top 10, but all of robbie dupree's 1980 self-titled debut is extremely yachty.

michael boddicker provides synths, bill labounty backing vocals. excellent rainy morning

hell yeah

keep the fire, from 1979, is a little country-tinged; kenny pretty much always stayed firmly on the rock side of yacht rock.

three tracks are certified yacht, including the indelible "this is it"; the opening track "love has come of age" (one of my favorites) just missed the boat at a 47.25 on the yachstki scale.

one record i'm really excited about in this shipment is the 1979 self-titled solo debut from leah kunkel—i've been listening to it on spotify and it's unreal.

leah is mama cass's little sister; she married legendary soft-rock studio drummer russ kunkel (james taylor, carly simon, stevie nicks), who produced this record.

steve lukather is all over this, too.
