Used Kids

January 8, 2012

Today I went to Used Kids Records. I haven’t been back there since I was in college. I picked up three records for a little over $7; Wham, The Edge of Heaven; Joboxers, Like Gangbusters, and The Monkees – Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones (Colgems, not Rhino). Essentially the same sort of things I bought there the first time around, but that’s okay. I’m rebuilding.

Of course, it’d be nice if I could find some decent speakers in the thrift (I’m a snob; I’ll only have vintage and wood) so that I could play the damn things. My record player has internal speakers but they sound like shit.

Sorry about the crap cell phone picture. I won’t make a habit of it.

BTW, if you know the OSU campus, Used Kids has moved into the spot where World Records used to be.

    Vintage wooden speakers? There are some in my media room as we speak. Snob.

    Plastic is NOT what speakers should be made of. Good luck finding something old and wood, I bet you won’t have much trouble once garage sale season starts back up. I just listened to “Ohio” by Over the Rhine and it made me stop and wonder where you’ve been (haven’t seen you on flickr!), I had a mental flashback I guess.

      Thanks! There are several good thrifts near me that have good prices on speakers like I want … just nothing’s been quite “it” yet. And thanks for thinking of me!

    I just read that the Like Gangbusters album is about to get an expanded reissue shortly! So excited!!

      Wow, really? That’s surprising.

    I have a spare pair of suitable speakers :

    Unfortunately, weighing 50lbs each shipping costs would probably be prohibitive! 🙂

      Yes, I think they’re a bit too big for me to move around my living room, but thanks anyway. 😀
