I’m trying something new here in order to help me get back in the mood of posting. The last few months have been hectic to say the least. Between trips to and from Ohio, dealing with a loss in the family, trying to a find a new place to live, moving (soon) and the general insanity that was work for a while I haven’t found a lot of motivation to post anything. I have found motivation to listen to music… a lot, actually. This is where these new features will come into play. I was thinking of ways to engage my blog a little more and I decided that I should do some weekly features and that the first should deal with the biggest part of my life, music.

record store day: 2012.

Nancy and I hit up some places for Record Store Day today. First, we stopped at The Exchange right off of the Brown/Red Line. We just walked in, took a peek around, saw some Record Store Day releases and then kind of walked out. They didn’t have what Nancy wanted. Next, we went downtown to Reckless Records in the Loop. I assumed they’d be out of a lot of stuff and that there would probably be a line to get in. I was correct about both. There was a line, although it quickly shrank and they were out of everything we wanted except the Metallica release. I bought myself one even though Nancy didn’t get anything she wanted. We wandered back outside and I started calling some places to try to find the record that she wanted and we eventually made our way back north.
