Vinyl Killers and Soundwagons

Just discovered the concept of vinyl killers and soundwagons.  What a fun way to play a record. Reminds me of the ladybug record player I used as a kid.

Chicago Cube Pics III

The most fun I’ve ever had searching for pictures was at the Broadway Antique Market. They had drawers upon drawers of photos and most were a quarter or less. I was in photo junking heaven!

What a treat to find Ira Glass and Chris Ware‘s Lost Buildings online so it can be shared.  Support this kind of work by purchasing the Lost Buildings DVD and Book from NPR.

Just a Speck. We’re all just Specks.

The population of the world has increased by roughly 3 Billion folks between when I was born in the mid-70s and now. Not quite double but relatively close.  Certainly cause for pause.

Chicago Cube Pics I

Picked up a hearty handful of cube pictures while attending the Third Coast Filmless Festival in Chicago last March.   This post is the first of three showcasing the stash.  These four were purchased at the Edgewater Antique Mall at 6314 North Broadway.
