    That's hardly new idea anyway, back in the 70s they had one that looked like a Volkswagen bus, you can still find them on eBay for $50 and up

    You're sposed to do what the kids do, heat them and make ashtrays to smoke yer weed.

    I guess that Swan Song label is pretty cool when you got Mother Nature in Zig-Zag.

    If you wait for somebody to die around here it will end up at Youth Ranch Thrift Stores, and not just Mantovani and 101 Strings anymore. It also tends to be in decent shape and a buck per LP in the album (2-LP $2 etc) and you've been listening to a few of the songs in your Phoenix Christmas albums for five holiday seasons now.

    I still recommend looking through the listings at shugarecords.com (actual physical store in Chicago as well). Sometimes you will be surprised. The customer service is pretty good as well. The guy that started the company had some really bad times and started selling his record collection, this led to new and used sales, eBay and his own website. He will also make a deal with you now and then. He moved from Minneapolis to Chicago 2-3 years ago and it always sounds like they are really busy there when I call. I like those sorts of stories.

    Don't laugh, they really do track the record well. Somebody was really smart (or stoned) when they engineered that

    They finally closed down the sex show theater that ran next to Ghirardelli Square for years in San Francisco so your talents have fewer employment opportunities.

    The Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell theatre. It was actually in the Tenderloin, but we were all hicks from a tiny farm town on a high school club summer field trip at the time and that new disease was killing at least ten people a day by then.

    I was only 16 then, saw it in a magazine or online years later.

    I heard they shut it down, I may be wrong.

    And I DO stand corrected, a person who would know told me...still engineering stress factors on poles.

    That thing is a hoot! Are we supposed to kick money in with no explanation of how it works? The part of the site where they "explain" the prototype does not work right. Will it track a 12-inch 45 rpm record?
