Just thought I’d make a quick post in honour of baby Ernie starting to follow in his father’s footsteps. That’s right, this week Ernie grabbed a couple of records, for the first time ever!! Unfortunately, he didn’t follow the rules of handling records: taking care, not putting your fingers on the playing surface, etc., preferring instead to whack the records into the ground repeatedly. Oh well, maybe he’ll be the next generation’s Milan Knizak:
or perhaps DJ Smallcock:
So long as he’s into vinyl in some way or another it doesn’t really matter 🙂
Speaking of format-snobbery. It was interesting to read this article that claims major labels will stop producing cd’s by the end of 2012. Well, except for limited editions or something. Can’t say I’ll be sorry to see them go. For one thing, they aren’t BPA-free, so they don’t sit well with a friendly-friendly operation such as Round & Round. We’re all about the kids.
Now, I suppose you may be curious as to which records Ernie chose? First was the 2nd album from Melbourne’s Crayon Fields All the Pleasures of the World:
Yes, I know it’s their third album but the first was on the un-family-friendly cd format and, as such, we choose to disregard its existence.
The second record was Simon and Garfunkel’s soundtrack to The Graduate:
Both of which are fine records. The boy’s got taste! What can I say: it must be in the genes!
