We’ve run through our cycle of cyber holidays so I’m pitching a new one for my own benefit and amusement: Shop Analog. I’m hoping for a 2014 launch. In prep, I’ve assembled a wishlist of stylish, practical, lo fit items that will be in use long after the holidays have disappeared from view.
¡Something Festive! is my all time favorite holiday LP. I bring it out right after Thanksgiving (along with Christmas on the Bandstand) and keep it on the turntable well into January.
I own multiples copies of SF for fear that it will be damaged or lost or permanently disappear from the second hand market (a consumer strategy I extend to bag and jacket acquisitions).
Here’s the playlist.
¡Something Festive! features most of the top A & M recording artists of the day like Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66, Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass and Liza Minnelli (to the relief of some, The Carpenters are missing from this album).
If you spot a copy of ¡Something Festive! in the LP bins at Goodwill, buy it and add it to your archives. But first, examine it closely to make sure a scratch is not running through the album’s most brilliant track, B3, Claudine Longet’s grim rendition of Snow (sounding like an ancestral version of the theme song to Twin Peaks).
Here a few last minute gift suggestions from the Archival web shop. If you’re local to Eugene (or Oregon), stop by our offices now through December 21st to make holiday purchase and see samples, prototypes, samples and other goods not listed on our site. To set up an appointment – email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some analog items that I wish I were buying as gifts (or, in a true Christmas miracle, unwrapping myself). Since many of these artifacts are out of production or difficult to source, I recommend that you print out the images below and create your own wishful tree ornaments.
In celebration of Made in USA goods produced by small manufacturers, we will be featuring three Archival product promotions for our fans this extended weekend – Thursday through Monday.
