Merry after Christmas and a Happy almost New Year in 13.5 hours!!! I hope all of you had a splendid Christmas! Well, it has definitely been a little longer than I had wanted to post these pictures, but here it is, my record player:)



By no means is it a very fancy record player, for it is the simplest you can find, but all that matters is that it plays records. I have definitely been getting in the routine of falling upon my records for music rather than the modern devices of an ipod or iTunes! The greatest party of all this, is that I haven't bought any records yet, but I have managed to excitingly inherit all of my parents old records that they thankfully kept all these years.



I was so excited when I found out that my mom had all of these Disney records because they are AMAZING!!!!!! They are totally retro because most of them are from the 60's which makes it even better, but to have Disney on records is beyond exciting.




In addition to the Disney records, my dad went rummaging in the storage sheds back in Thorndale over Christmas and found this amazing group of Classical records from all the famous composers. Once again, storage sheds are a treasure trove of great finds!! I must admit that these are the records I have been listening to most frequently, especially Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite, which are my favorite classical pieces. 
Apart from these great records, since I inherited all of my parents collections you can imagine that I have some genres that are not all that popular in this day in age. Those range from old country to 80's records, and soundtracks from old movies I have never watched or intend to but honestly, some of them are not to bad:)


Now that I have a record player, I can just picture myself soon having a way to large collection of records, but who cares, they are better than a CD. Here I come Goodwill and Record stores!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy New Year!!!!!
