    Wow, these are cool things to aspire to – monkeys in the wild, Uppercase magazine – but have you not been to the Rocky Horror Picture Show before? If not, don’t let anyone know or you will have to be devirginized, which usually involves peltings with large amounts of beans and rice!

    Good luck! I totally recomend the solo road trip … that can be truly amazing, mine was. And a very good occasion to take lots of pictures without anyone getting anoyed by it. 🙂
    I wish you an awesome year!

    best way to start a vinyl collection?
    Let people know you want vinyl … it is AMAZING what people will give you just to get it out of their (or their aging parents’) house!
    My hubby gets boxes and boxes and boxes from friends and relatives cleaning out their closets/garages/etc … He just takes whatever they want to get rid of and then he sorts through it at a later date (getting rid of what he doesn’t want, duplicates, etc).
    We have A LOT of Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass 🙂

    I’m so with you on #18!

    I had a fantastic record player but had to get rid of it when I moved to a smaller apartment. Now I have a bigger apartment again and so I’m on the hunt for one.
