On a couple of occasions some of the vinyl-fans around here have gathered in a thread in Misc. -and had a night of debauchery. Obviously playing records is an indoor activity as vinyl tends to melt in direct sunlight. (don't do this at home; I've tried and ended up with a record that was so warped it was better suited for a ladies hat than for playing ) So, if a global community (i.e. T-BBS'ers that are vinyl fans) is to gather around listening to vinyl records, it has to be during spring or fall (respectively). Anyone up for a "Vinyl Night" one of these days? -I suggest we meet up next Friday (unless there is a consensus on some other day) and talk about our music, have a few drinks, and play some vinyl. You up for it?
