And then there was Taylor Swift's speech at the AMA's. "To the fans who went out and bought over a million copies of my last 3 albums - what you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you're saying you believe in the same thing that I believe in, that music is valuable and that music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated..."
Damn you, Taylor Swift, for how obnoxiously perfect (and right) you are.
I love music. But the last time I purchased an album? Long time. Mainly because there's something about the digital medium that just doesn't do it for me. I never have enough space on my phone for music. In the car, I listen to the radio or old CDs. I've been a lazy music lover and it was time for that to change. I could get excited about records.
Christmas Day, guess what my in-laws had under the tree for me? The cutest, lime green, portable record player! And with that, an invitation to raid their old box of records to get my vinyl collection started. Steve helped me pick out some good ones. I hope to share one new (or old) record with you here every month.
