These Are the Rules

1.) This is an excuse for me to listen to all of my records. I have a habit of buying records and then never actually listening to them because I am lazy. This needs to stop. I finally fixed the left speaker on my stereo and I want to listen to every record in my collection. Alphabetically. They are meticulously organized and I want to spend time with each and every one of them.

2.) As I am constantly finding myself in Love Garden spending money, I will immediately listen to every new record I buy and do an entry for it.

3.) After working through the LPs, I will painstakingly attempt to tackle my collection of 7"s, which must be numbering somewhere around 200 (I bought at least a hundred of them from the shotgun room for a quarter a piece).

4.) I am including biographical details, such as where I bought the record, why I bought it, etc. I am also including the price because I am curious to see how much I have spent over the past six or seven years since I started collecting/ how much money I have wasted that I could have spent on, I don't know, rent or food.

5.) There will be no real schedule because if I set one I would never, ever attempt this project. By leaving it loose it lets me work on it when I feel like it and thus, promotes productivity! Now, time to get started...


  1. Hi. We are doing the same thing - I'm on with partner blogs for CDs and 7"s.

  2. Love the idea! I could never do this as my collection is in the thousands but I appreciate what you're doing.. and you have GREAT TASTE as well...

    You should register at my messageboad

    You'll find a lot of likeminded individuals..

    Gonna mention your blog there.

  3. Been looking through your site, and reading a little here and there, you have some great records! I must admit I'm a little jealous of your local record store and the cheap prices. Here in Norway 45s are $10 and records close to $30..
