The product description for Records from TopoRanch reads “Topo Ranch figures it might remind you of a time when your inner DJ was first awoken by a record player you received for your 5th birthday.” I actually had a toy record player growing up and I remember loving that thing. I had a bunch of thse “storytelling” records. Do you guys remember those? I also remember having a bunch of promotional ALF vinyls from Burger King! Imagine getting a vinyl with your kids meal. I can’t even fathom that now.
It’s sort of weird. I grew with records because my mom loved them. She had (and still has) a large record collection and I loved being able to choose what record we’d play next. But I grew to favor CD’s and then the mp3. I’ve recently been wanting to experience vinyl once again but every time I think about getting a turntable I do a 360 and head straight back to the digital realm of iTunes. I really think me and vinyl need to renew our relationship with one another.
In the age of digital everything – I’m actually looking around for a decent record player. Yep, you know, that thing that plays vinyl. Those huge circular things that spin and play music. Yeah, I want one. You know why? Because I grew up listening to records. My mom was (and still is) a huge music freak and she is the reason why I can appreciate good music, both old stuff and new stuff. Plus, she has a huge record collection that I’d love to get my hands on, dust off, and have a listen too.
Speaking of vinyl, this is the shirt that I should be wearing the day that I get my own record player. It’s called Vinyl and Crossbones and it is from brand new indie clothing brand, Aeres Clothing Co., who coincidently have a grand opening sale going on right now. All American Apparel shirts are priced at $22 and all Alstyle and Bella tees are priced at $18. How many of you still listen to vinyl?
Holy kabonkers, I haven’t done one of these in what seems like forever. A vacation will do that! Luckily, I’m back and that means fresh episodes of Coty Loves Threadless for your viewing pleasure! This episode is a woozy so be sure to watch it. My Threadless Pick of the Week is The Homesick Cosmonaut by Jesse Lefkowitz because it features one lanky astronaut in outer space and he misses home!
Former Beautiful/Decay intern, Lyndsey Lesh created this stunning design, titled Music Mountain. It’s actually the June T-Shirt of the Month over at the Beautiful/Decay online shop. I’m definitely digging this design and I absolutely love the colorway. Pick up this shirt if you’re Â fan of music and wonderful art! Now, if only I knew how to spin records.
As with all Beautiful/Decay Shirt of the Months, this tees will be offered as a unique colorway and will be limited to a run of 300 shirts. The tee is available now for just 20 bucks, which is 33% off the retail price. Essentially, you’re getting a limited run Beautiful/Decay tee before it’s available anywhere else! And even when it is available at retail outlets, this colorway will be no more! So buy it if you like it, now.Â
