    Why is Time-Life still pitching CD Collections?

    I like to own physical music media and am not a fan of digital downloads simply because I don't trust that my ownership rights to my music purchases are guaranteed to persist over time. What happens if a server gets corrupted that has any or all of my digital download licenses? Or, what if the...

    So sorry, man. Be sure and let your wife know that your family are in our collective hearts and mind during this period of grief.

    Any Pool Players Out There?

    My wife and I finally got the basement remodeling project to a point of completion where I hired a billiard company to come out and re-assemble my table. New rubber cushions were put on it (the original rubber bumpers were almost 60 years old and started showing signs of dry rot in some spots)...

    Who did you see in your first live concert?

    August 3, 1978. The Warehouse in New Orleans. The Kinks with an opening act of a relatively unknown group at the time named Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

    Any Pool Players Out There?

    I have an early 1960s Brunswick Gold Crown I that is scheduled to be professionally re-assembled on the 30th of this month. We are finally finishing our basement remodeling project. Can't wait. This is what it looked like when it was last assembled at our previous house over 10 years ago:

    remember stereo components?

    I still have my Boston Acoustic A-100s that I bought in the 1980s and a few years ago I picked up a Fisher MT-6224 turntable to play the vinyl collection I have amassed since I was a teenager. (The turntable has no moving motor. Instead it has 120 magnetic poles that push the platter around, so...
