I Love My Record Player More Than I Love My Brother



I wrote a whole blog post a couple of months ago about the details of my record player, including all of the vinyls that I own. To spare you the long, boring information, I'll the link blog here and move on with why I love it so much.

First of all, there's something so cool about vinyl. It gives listening to music a whole new (er, I guess old) meaning. I like not having to fuss with shuffle or try to find the next song. You can't just skip a song on a record (well, you can but it's a pain in the butt). It forces you to enjoy the record as it was meant to be enjoyed--as one complete piece.

I enjoy lounging in bed on a weekend and just listening. It had been so long since I had sat down and just listened to the music. Whenever I'm listening to music, I'm normally distracted by something else, whether it be homework, a book I'm reading, or distracted by my surroundings, as I'm usually walking with my headphones in. When I use my record player, I know that for the next 40-50 minutes I'm going to be completely immersed in the tunes.

What's your favorite way to listen to music? I occasionally like borrowing my brother's Beats when I'm home because music sounds so good through them as well.
