Greetings Friends and a Happy Friday,
The sunshine has come out today, the rain has been great but it is nice to see the sun.
Poprocks, been to Lou's many times, it's right in my backyard, and yes not nearly the size they once were, pre 2008 they had 3 building going, 1 for New stuff, 1 for used and the small video building, the hey day for sure. I also recall when Jack Johnson played in the parking lot and it was insanely packed, people were in the tree;s across the street, good times. I will be swinging by there tonight, to get some cleaning fluid and look over the used vinyl, I have picked up a couple lp's over the last year there. I also saw a place called Spin records in Carlsbad when my wife and I rode up to the Coyote bar a few weekends ago, I want to check it out too.
Fiddynut - Nothing like the last ride before the frozen tundra claims the land, glad you got that ride in. Yes, I love the sound of Vinyl too, especially a good copy of something. I picked up an English pressing of Captain Fantastic by Elton John, and the vocal clarity is amazing, I can hear the difference from my original 1975 US copy which is still in good condition. I also bought a 1/2Speed Master copy of Dark Side of the Moon, Still fun to smoke a bowl and put on the headphones and drift away in the darkness. I also picked up some Queen after seeing the movie and some classic Kinks too.
Vinyl will provide my soundtrack tonight when I do my smoke report. This morning, I opened each jar and smelled it to try and see if I could name the strain with out looking, I nailed the Super Lemon Haze, as the lemon aroma is building but mixed up the other two, as they are not real strong yet, but each are getting a unique fragrance going. The Green Crack has a mild Tangie smell and taste, and the Jack Herer is earthy and getting really tasty. So look for the posting later tonight.
