Found in Brooklyn: A TURNTABLE!!!!!

While my social and artistic life is nothing to complain about, F.I.B has been a bit underemployed lately, hence completely broke. Looking for work is one of my least favorite things to do in life. I was trudging home yesterday after making the rounds of some god awful self- esteem damaging Manhattan temporary agencies when I found THIS WORKING TURNTABLE on Union Street & Hoyt. Thank you God or whoever! It has a good needle in it too! I've been turntable-less for well over a year. You have to understand, F.I.B owns more vinyl than C.D's. My ex-husband left me with an Ipod loaded with like 5,000 songs but it just isn't the same. I don't do Ipod. I like to be AWARE.

So, for the past 24 hours I have been on a vinyl binge. The Buzzcocks, Bob Dylan, The Fleshtones, K-Tel, Ziggy Stardust (F.I.B's fave album of all time), George Jones, Disco Hits, K-Tel, Slade, The Church Keys (Rest in Peace, Bill Peitsch), R.L Burnside.... I feel whole again.

Now I just need to find me one of them DVD players that everybody else has.....
