so, i did it. i sold them - all of them. well, most of them. i held onto the treasures, like biggie's singles : 'one more chance' and 'juicy', and black moon's classic 'enta da stage'... and other treats from my youth... but for the most part, all gone... over 1000 pieces of vinyl. i'm a bit sad. but, it's a new era. SERATO is king. sh*t if questlove can rock with it, i can too. whoever came up with it is a genius! your computer streams tracks down to two pieces of vinyl encoded to play whatever you desire in your hard-drive. magnificent! 8000 songs in a small bag - no back aches. lovely.
also, it freed up room in my apartment, tiny as it is. maybe i'll throw a 'no more vinyl' party...

this weekend i had the opportunity to see many of my good friends (almost all from college) -- share stories, laugh a lot, eat some food, watch a riveting movie and catch a super live show. yes, much was accomplished these last coupla days. raffy came to town, as did dmax. jamal, dan, darryl & i went to see lil brother at highline ballroom (an astoundingly energetic show!) - after we'd caught up with felix, jav, alvarez, raffy & johnny nightlife at cafe noir for the saturday afternoon reggae session. the PENN reunion was completed today when rich joined the crew for sunday brunch at the barking dog - then drinks at vertigo while we watched all 6 active nfl games. finally, a few of us caught 'michael clayton' before adjourning back my apt to watch my most recent DVD purchase -- 1990s rap videos mixed by dj souljah. a perfect way to culminate the reminiscence weekend.
