Next weekend I’ll join my parents in their Garage Sale in Lommel, where I’ll be offering a bunch of vinyl and CD’s, as you can see in the picture on the right. Obviously there will be a record player available to test vinyl and to maintain a fun atmosphere. The offer in terms of vinyl you can find at Record for Sale/Exchange. Next to that there will also be a wide selection of CD’s, both singles and albums at very reasonable prices (0,10 / 1 EUR). I will also have a selection of MetallicA bootlegs (live recordings and demo’s) up …
The music section of this blog has been online for quite a while, but only recently I made a first post in it. Today, I’m adding one more to let you know what I’ll be posting here in the future and to give you a first example of records I want to talk about for a bit. You may note I also put this post in the burnout blues section of the website, as records have also helped me a lot in slowing down in life. Next to my professional life, also my private life had always been too packed until a few years ago.
The younger ones (and heck, also the older ones I reckon) among you, are probably using Spotify or other streaming resources for your musical entertainment. While I’m really fond of how accessible a wealth of music is available through these, I can’t help but love it more to have physical records in my hand. The size, the sleeve and artwork, it feels good to hold and look at. It looks beautiful when it’s on the turntable, as you can see on the left. The imperfections because of dust, minor scratches or surface noise, it all adds to the experience. You’re holding history when you’re holding records, they’re more dynamic than one would assume. So you wonder why I’m not on Spotify if I’m into music that much? My Spotify is my record collection that today holds over 750 records, all collected during the past 2 years. That’s about 1 new record each day. That’s so much to discover, so much to listen to again and again.
My record collection page got an upgrade and is now fully up-to-date. As my collection is expanding, there’s also quite a few doubles and records I don’t want to keep in my collection. These are available for sale or to exchange for other records. Should you be interested in exchanging or buying, don’t hesitate to contact me about it!
