I listen to a lot of music.

I spend a bit too much time swooning over pictures on Tumblr of people I find attractive.

I appreciate meaningful/artistic/literary/lyric tattoos.


So, over the weekend, I got some new gear and set up a vintage rig in my bedroom. I still have my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon set up out in the main listening room, but it’s nice to have some decent quality equipment in my room, where I can listen late without keeping the family awake.

I picked up the turntable at an antique mall on Saturday for $19. Came home, looked through our storage shed, and found an old Marantz receiver that we used to have hooked up when I was a kid. It isn’t in the best cosmetic shape ever, and the wood grains don’t match… but it works, and it works well.

At first, I didn’t think I was going to have any speakers to hook up, but I was content to listen through my Audio Technica headphones. Then, today, I decided to stop by Goodwill, and I found a pair of KLH 900B bookshelf speakers for $20. Needless to say, I’m extremely psyched to have a full, vintage setup in my bedroom for under $40.

Here are just a few of the things I’ve spun in the last 24 hours or so.
