New Acquisition for the Woman Cave
As soon as this little eBay beauty arrived in the mail, I ran out to the Woman Cave to set it up. How does one set up a record player? Plug it in. You're done. That's it. There's no surround sound. No treble. No bass. No loudness. No balance. No tone. No nothing. You plug it in and plop an album on there. Since we are talking about me, the player was, of course, christened with some Led Zeppelin and Motown. Smiles, everyone, smiles!! How happy am I to have an honest to God record player? I love the simplicity of it. It's all about the music coming out of those little speakers. You either appreciate it for what it is or you don't. I appreciate it. Now there's a CD player at one end of the room and a record player at the other. Both of them sit on milk crates our former tenant hijacked from somewhere. Then I stole them from her. (That'll teach you not to pay your rent on time!)
I've got hundreds of records. I never listen to them because Soul Brother #1 and I do not have the same taste in music. Our stereo with the turntable and the television share the same room. He loves the TV. I prefer music. Since he's usually watching TV when he's home, I never listen to my records. Well, I never used to listen to records. Now I can go lift weights in the Woman Cave and spin vinyl to my heart's content.
