It’s been a while since I’ve done an unboxing video, but I knew this record would be a great one to unveil on YouTube. Watch below to see the gorgeous vinyl for The Decemberists’ new album, I’ll Be Your Girl, hear a snippet of the best track on the record, and listen to me ramble on about my love for this band.
I had a wonderful trip to the Pacific Northwest last month. I visited record stores in Portland, Eugene, Beaverton, Olympia, and Seattle. I found something to buy at almost every shop I checked out, and my DJ bag was stuffed when I returned home. Not only did I find some incredible things on my trip, but I came home to some VCLT from one of my YouTube buddies. The vinyl community is truly a wonderful place.
Check out the video below to see what I’ve added to my collection!
I love the holidays. I love them so much that I vomit glitter at the stroke of midnight on Black Friday, and I don’t stop until New Year’s Day. I usually struggle to wait until after Thanksgiving to start listening to Christmas music, and once it starts, it’s pretty much all I’m listening to until December 26th. And I also spin the dreidel, so you can bet I’ve got a lot of Hanukkah tunes in heavy rotation as well.
I’ve been accumulating holiday music on CD for 25 years, but only in the past couple of years have I started adding to my holiday vinyl collection. Over the past month, I’ve been highlighting a piece of that collection every day on Instagram, but I decided to make a quick video too. If you’re interested in seeing my eclectic collection of merry-making tunes, check it out below.
