Yep… vinyl and vapour trails. Why? Because I like to ring of it. It hatched when I had one of those lightning bolt moments. You know the ones. I was pondering this post while I was outside doing my bit for the abstract challenge. I was thinking of the vinyl. Then, I looked up and noticed the planes dashing across the blue sky… leaving their vapour trails behind.
That’s how this post evolved… vinyl and vapour trails! It has a ring about it… but, I think I may have said that earlier. I was going to use the vinyl for the “M” post. M for Music which then turned into M for Memories. That meant I still had a pile of records just waiting to be shown to the outside world.
As you may well know… the stuff can’t just lay in the bottom of the press forever… they must eventually be outed. The only thing… I have far more flat plastic discs than I can use in one post so here’s a sneak-peek look into the future… maybe next year’s V will again be for vinyl! OK… I’ve been totally random with my selection but I’m sure you may spot something to reminisce about.
The beauty of vinyl was that you could open up the gate-fold covers and dream away while you listen to Side A. Then Side B. Triple LP’s took on their own lives. Hours of lying flat on the back… head positioned somewhere in the middle of the sound wave and then just letting the music wash over you. Yep, I think it’s time I did a hi-fi upgrade… the vinyl has been in hiding far too long!
PS – I have a dream… to be a late night DJ, one day… when I grow up!
