back to phono with amy gurrrlll

phonograph bwnostalgia typically hits me during the holiday season \  <a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations> / ordinary objects that were part of my everyday life growing up & that have radically changed over the years bring back a well of memories / a few years ago i obtained a manual typewriter \ i also started using & collecting fountain pens / more recently i amassed a trove of wooden pencils

the latest souvenir from my sentimental mental trip is the record player <turntable, phonograph> / amy winehouse’s “back to black” is its inaugural play \ my favorite young musician who was born into & inhabits the digital world was thrilled & appreciated, perhaps its quaintness  <a similar reaction to the manual typewriter> / when i first played it, i just stared at the lp going around & around, at the dark grooves that separated each track and thought, i haven’t seen or done this in at least 30 years \ billie holiday & glenn miller will sound great here
