Yeah well...USC has become the team to hate...winning will do that.


But UT has less of a reason to be haters than anyone now don't they...

Hey, hate is not part of my vocabulary. FWIW, Marcus Allen is my second favorite college running back of all time.

Thanks for the Cake video. Funny how watching it seems almost nostalgic--Cake was the first local (SF/E. Bay) band my now 14-year-old was a fan of a few years back and I think she has a few of their tunes on her iPod. Nowadays nostalgia is for CDs, I guess...

Recently hubs got one of those turntables you can use to put your albums on CD...bet the sound quality is practically nil, but also bet some of his (and my) oldest records are stuff not to be found on CD.  AND, the "World's Greatest Record Store" in Mill Valley CA is closing. Sigh...

Don't mistake me for a total old fogey, though. There is progress in so many areas of life (medicine, for ex.) without which there'd be far fewer old fogeys around to bewail "these times." 

On Edit: Had to look it up, CAKE is from Sacramento. Also had no idea they'd been around since the '90s.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cake_(band)

You bet, ponder---er, podner...

My hubs vinyl collection began when he was a dj at his college radio station in the  '70s and he has been unable to "part with" any, only separate them into boxes we open when we move and ones we don't, pretty much like me and my books.  (We don't even ask friends to help us move any more, and even our requests to family are limited!)

I was, uh... urged to sell my vinyls by the former mrs. podner (yes, my love. they do take up too much room. uh-huh, uh-huh). No regrets really. Don't even have a turntable anymore and have replaced most of the essentials with CDs.

joni... just because...

As I understand you have to have a damn good turntable and stereo system to hear the difference between vinyl and CD, not to mention a very good ear.  I lost my vinyls in a hurricane 12 years back and miss them badly.  They still haven't come out with a box set of Eric Dolphy at the Five Spot, which I had on vinyl.  Some other valuable vinyls got scratched beyond recognition including Duke and Mahalia doing Black, Brown and Beige, which I was able to replace on CD, but it just isn't the same.  Sentimental reasons more than anything else, as it is a gold disc.  CD's may not evoke as many memories as of yet, but they have come out with superlative box sets that will be valuable collector's items one day as well as an endless pleasure to listen to.

I was a Rock DJ in the late 70s and still have about 1,000 LPs.   I have bought the turntable to hook up to my PC, but still haven't opened it up.   I'll let you know sound quality after I finally get around to it...
