A year of recordsSome good records.
Around a year ago, I defended my PhD thesis 🥳! To celebrate, my kind colleagues offered me a record player. Since then, I bought quite some records, second-hand when possible, discogs has been a great source in these pandemics time.
When I was younger, I had cassettes, then CDs. When I got access to internet, I started using P2P, torrents, and streaming services such as Grooveshark, Spotify, or Deezer. Having now this record player is a welcomed return to playing music on a physical medium.
Sure you can’t listen to your favourite playlist, but I always liked to listen to entire records, and it is just great to have a small device that only plays the music. Listening to music is now a nice ritual, not just a click.
