Pretty marbled blue Kinks cozying up to CAN this morning.  Working from home totally has it perks beyond not needing to wear a bra.

The Black Keys - The Big Come Up

Working from home means I can skip the mp3’s and earbuds and hit up my records.  This is a shot of my newly acquired Black Keys - my first clear wax. 

Damn, is this cool.

Now that I’m a budding vinyl collector, I’ve learned that I “save” my virgin spins for the right moment.  I don’t really practice this behavior in any other aspect of my life, but with records I do.

I finally opened my Arches record this morning.  I was a contributor to their Kickstarter project to get Wide Awake pressed on vinyl.  For doing so, my name was mentioned in the credits.  Do you see it?  Third on the list!!  I didn’t realize that flamgilrant would be the name used, but I’m tickeled!  There are a lot of Amy K.’s in the world but how many flamgirlants do you know??

It’s hard to tell from the last photo but the record itself is a very pretty marbled vinyl in shades of purple.  Very lovely.  And my, does it sound fantastic.  I’m so happy I was able to be a part of getting Wide Awake on vinyl.  Well done guys, it really is something special.
