My roommate took me to a house party in which the owner of the house had this insane record collection. I try to live minimally, not buying more than I need, but when I saw the amount of Salsa vinyl this guy had, I went nuts. After that night, I made it a point to try to amass a Salsa Vinyl collection bigger than the one I saw at the party. I guess I had Salsa envy. Thus began the Salsa Arms Race. Check out what I've found lately at Amoeba's World Music vinyl section...Ha! take that, Salsa Vinyl Collection Guy!

rain, rain go away Part 2

After writing the blog "rain, rain go away" yesterday, I was inspired to ask some of my co-workers what their favorite rainy day comforts are, and I got some pretty interesting answers.  Let's check it out:

Doug
security/cassettes/receiving


John Coltrane's Ole
"My sister actually mentioned it once when we were driving around listening to the album.  She said it was good rainy day music.  It's got a groovy baseline."


Brendan

cloud city

When I asked Brendan what his rainy day favorites are, he told me that he was feeling sick and was actually looking for something to bring home and watch tonight. 
"The Hole is about obsessive neighbors.  It's weird and Taiwanese. 

I was listening to Country Blues by Lightnin' Hopkins yesterday.  It's quiet."






Ben W.
metal/buyer

"The Boatman's Call by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.  This album was released during the winter.  The first morning I listened to it, I woke up at 10am while my girlfriend was still asleep and put it on at a low volume.  I opened the window and there was 2 feet of snow, so I crawled back into bed."
