|Verna at Obsession Records|
I had some errands yesterday and took the long way back along the Campbell Creek trail to Lake Otis and passed the mall at the corner. I'd heard that the Russian grocery there had real rye bread, so I cruised the parking lot.
I found Obsession Records - a place I'd heard about, but had never been open when I looked. Now it was open (it's open 5-8pm for now while the people there work elsewhere during the day.) I poked my head in and looked around.
I like the idea that the turntable is back. There's a different sound quality - not necessarily better - to the records.

As an old fogie I'm not too current on new stuff and was only fuzzily aware that new music is being released on vinyl, but here's a list of coming attractions.
Here it is from the outside. It's the mall with Golden Donuts at the corner. This unit is way in the back.
And when I got home I got out an old Kingston Trio album. "They're rioting in Africa" seemed very contemporary. From Oldy Lyrics:
"They're rioting in Africa. They're starving in Spain. There's hurricanes in Florida and Texas needs rain.Oh, and it turns out the Russian grocery is gone. The sign's still up, but but the shop was bare rooms. So when I got home I finished the bread I've been working on for days. But that's another post.
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls. The French hate the Germans. The Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs. South Africans hate the Dutch and I don't like anybody very much!
But we can be tranquil and thankful and proud for man's been endowed with a mushroom shaped cloud.
And we know for certain that some lovely day someone will set the spark off and we will all be blown away.
They're rioting in Africa. There's strife in Iran. What nature doesn't do to us will be done by our fellow man."
