Don’t get me wrong, vinyl has many wonderful uses. It makes great tarps, tents, umbrellas, siding, etc…but when I say I love vinyl, I’m talking records. There’s something about this technical recording media that fascinates me. I like the look, the mechanism, the sound, the whole experience of picking out a record, wiping it down before putting it on the turntable, and then dropping the needle.
I use my record collection for inspiration. Sometimes when I need to clear my mind, I set up my easel, put on a record, and paint. Then there are times when I play records to get in a specific mood for writing. I can’t explain it, but vinyl records make me want to create.
