On July 25th 1980

Back in Black is released by AC/DC. The first album I ever had on vinyl that was my very own. My Uncle Mickey gave it to me on my 10th birthday in 1980. Yes, I still own it. I loved it so much and with some dough from my Grandma from the same birthday I went to the record store and bought Highway to Hell. And then my love affair with Bon Scott began. I truly believe Back and Black is a stellar album but can't to think of what it might have been if Bon had stayed alive. Anyway here's some more on Back in Black.

the Real Life Social Network

brilliant deck from a UX Designer at Google. If you're interested in what's happening right now and where the web is trending this is a must read for you. Thanks Paul.

RIP Harvey Pekar

forget the stupid news about a basketball player leaving Ohio. The real news, sad news is that Harvey Pekar has passed on. Brilliant writer and fellow record enthusiast, at least we have the comics.

the Death of Touch and the Lost Joy of the Unexpected

great read FTA:
"I spent much of my youth, from the moment I could drive, rifling through the musty bins of the used record stores on Coventry Road in Cleveland looking for hidden gems (where I first heard Yo La Tengo playing while I shopped). After college, in NYC, I spent even more hours on St. Mark's rifling through even bigger bins at five or six stores along one small block - they are all gone now. After moving to San Francisco, just over a decade ago, I was introduced to Amoeba Records, a massive former bowling alley on Haight Street still filled with literally millions of pieces of music. Although it still survives, I haven't been in years. I have probably spent a few thousand hours of my life collecting music, flipping through vinyl, inspecting the grooves, breathing in the unique smells of the stores, chatting with the overeducated clerks and peering over the shoulders of the surrounding hipsters looking for tips.
