Ungroovy

While out at the in-laws' place a week ago, I helped move a bench down to the wood shop, so it could be sanded and refinished. While there, I got to looking through a bunch of LP's that Ray had down there, and ended up snagging about a half dozen of them to listen to.

So, imagine my unhappiness to discover that, at some point in the last several moves, my record player has somehow lost a rather important and critical drivegear, and will no longer function. Actually, that's only sort of true: everything works, but the turn table doesn't turn. Effectively useless. I guess I'm not really surprised; with all the moving I've done in the last five years alone, it could have finally gotten jostled the wrong way and 'blammo'. Still, that really sucks...especially since I have a nice collection of 60's-80's LPs.

So, in this age of advanced technology where I could take 6 hours of music with me in a digital player the size of a few of my fingers...I have to go looking for a new record player. Yeesh! I guess it could have been worse: I could be looking for an 8-track player!
