Shop Analog

December 9th, 2013

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.

From the Archives: ¡Something Festive!

December 23rd, 2012

¡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).

Wishful Shopping – Analog Edition

December 14th, 2012

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.
