TVD's 70's | 1976

So, earlier in the week I was bemoaning what really is a very common occurrence, the sheer lack of time--free time, that is--to ...I dunno for pleasure ...organize my records that DVD that's been on my shelf for ages (a great JAM video compilation, or so I'm told.)

But it seems that it's very possible that I'm alone with that quandary when I read stuff like this:

Japanese DJ software offers perfect excuse for buying a second iPhone
As the club DJ transition from vinyl turntables to CD turntables to dual iPods has progressed audiences have become more accepting of the changing dynamic. But some DJs still long for the old school vinyl aesthetic. Japanese design and software group Delaware has unveiled a solution to remedy such longings called Record001 for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

The application allows you to backspin, pause and scratch records as you would with a tradition record player and even allows you to pick up and drop the needle anywhere on the record while it's playing with complete accuracy. You can see video of the app in action. . . and pick up your copy of the app on the iTunes store for just $1.99. . .

On your PHONE. Sheez.

So, what's next? "Japanese Software Perfects Masturbatory Techniques" ...because THAT we ALL have time for, riiight?

Now, where was I? Oh, yea--'76:

Peter Frampton - Do You Feel Like We Do (Mp3)

Elvin Bishop - Fooled Around And Fell In Love (Mp3)
Hall & Oates - Sara Smile (Mp3)
Starbuck - Moonlight Feels Right (Mp3)
Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat (Mp3)

You know, I've had a vinyl copy of "Frampton Comes Alive" for something like twenty years -- since the time when I really started working on the collection -- and I've never listened to it! Always one of those I leave for another time, just like the collection of Russian folk songs and some LPs by the Ray Conniff Singers!

Finally - the definitive definition of 'procrastination'!

Tell ya what...put it on and listen with 'fresh''s pretty damn good.
