the days of our lives

i love my dad's lp collection. it contains the stuff i grew up on before i was old enough to start swapping audio tapes and then cds with college friends. it's probably the one 15" by 15" box that contains more memories than any other part of the world put together (except possibly for the almost-crate of photo albums my dad has clicked over the years...he was *very* shutter happy :))

right now, i'm listening to engelbert humperdinck's melodious voice crooning "love me with all of your heart". it's like i'm 5 years old all over again :)

sometimes, it feels like i was a kid in the 60's, a teenager in the 80's, and my life so far is 50 years of music squeezed into 24 years of living it

Old LPs are cool, one of my friends has a player which is numbered 666. which is even cooler.

Cheers to memories!
