turntable now able to play records thru the computer!



I’m blogging earlier today. A lot earlier. I have done the dishes but instead of doing my morning reading I thought I would write here. This way I will be sure get my blogging in at leisure.


The big news for me is that the contraption that Mark recommended and Eileen ordered for me for Christmas arrived and it works!


I’m using it right now to quietly listen to an old vinyl record. This record is so old that Wendy Carlos is still referred to as Walter.

It makes me very happy that I can access my records. Admittedly I only have a small number left from what was once a very large collection. In a moment of silliness I sold off most of my records in a garage sale years ago.

I did retain some of them however and have even added to the collection over the years. It’s hard to resist thumbing through the records in thrift shops.

I enjoyed having company last night.  I hope I didn’t drive people too nuts with my usual enthusiasms.

I think I’m going to wrap this up so that I have some time to read and study before people get up.

One of the Pips died. I always had a soft spot in my heart for those dudes.

Syrian Journalist Who Documented ISIS Atrocities Is Killed in Turkey – The New York Times

This offsets the heartwarming story about the president of Turkey who talked down a suicide recently. Good thing the guy attempting suicide wasn’t a journalist, eh?
