    Is there even anything decent in there? I haven't heard Lee Ritenour, but that orange record looks cool enough that I'd listen to it! Maybe the Bill Evans?

    I just ordered a handful of old records from Discogs sellers over the past 6 to 8 weeks. Limited to "favorites", and/or those "conducive to the vinyl experience" B) Some of them get kinda pricey when you try to stick to NM/M-, and even then it's a bit of a crap shoot, depending on seller grading. Some sellers kind of stretch the condition a bit. I try to ask for play graded condition, as well, since I had one recently that was graded NM and looked beautiful, but sounded like a fresh bowl of Rice Krispies the first 5 seconds after the milk goes in.
    I disabled signatures.

    Hey, @aprazer402. I owe you an apology. I posted a pic early this morning that you had already posted. My bad dude. Didn't mean to steal your thunder....

    If it happens again, you have my permission to spank Trey. Deal?

    I5 south bound?

    When I was working over there in early 2020, Covid hit and traffic was a dream - this is the 210 eastbound at about 4pm…

    CA-2 winding it’s way down from the Angeles National Forest foothills through the Verdugo Mountains. Much prettier than I-5. Also, one of the best freeways for traffic in L.A. County… until you get downtown, where it merges with I-5 and CA-110 (part of which is the oldest freeway in the US).
    Alea jacta est!

    @msg @jdjohn - Vinyl prices these days!!!!
    I have to really want a record in order to buy it on vinyl anymore... especially brand-new vinyl. I normally buy used from a record store, or on eBay if the seller looks good. My vinyl collection is actually relatively small :/ I tend to geek out more on vinyl playback systems than actually collecting records. It's not the direction I predicted when I got into this, but here I am.

    Well, I shouldn't understate how many records I have, but it's likely quite puny compared to most of you guys. I probably have 300 rock/pop, plus another 100 instrumental/classical.

    I'm actually at the point of where I have all that I really want to have. I'm pretty content with digital or streaming for anything else...for now ;) Record storage is also a limiting factor until we get a bigger house.

    Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam (CG 54) is underway off the coast of Japan near Mt. Fuji. Antietam is on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, Nov. 22, 2014. The U.S. Navy is sailing the USS Antietam and the USS Chancellorsville warships through the Taiwan Strait Sunday, in the first such transit publicized since US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan earlier in August, at a time where tensions have kept the waterway particularly busy.
