  1. Are you gonna wreck my life By not selling me Guitar Ray on Shagg?
  2. Because of the pandemic, I'm separated from my player (it's in my office, with my records, because I have more room there). I've been shipping records to my home, and have quite a few I'd like to play. I don't have a lot of room and am wondering whether it is feasible to buy a portable player and listen with headphones. In addition, do I need to get replacement styli? FYI, I mostly have 45s but a few 78s. I was thinking of the Numark here: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PT01USB--numark-pt-01usb-portable-turntable?mrkgadid=1000000&mrkgcl=28&mrkgen=gpla&mrkgbflag=0&mrkgcat=djequipment&&acctid=21700000001645388&dskeywordid=92700053643387294&lid=92700053643387294&ds_s_kwgid=58700005869799901&ds_s_inventory_feed_id=97700000007215323&dsproductgroupid=839990527875&product_id=PT01USB&prodctry=US&prodlang=en&channel=online&storeid=&device=c&network=g&matchtype=&locationid=9021565&creative=434546239423&targetid=aud-377243944773:pla-839990527875&campaignid=1465808293&gclid=Cj0KCQjw3ZX4BRDmARIsAFYh7ZJrlCLy3AfRf45PvuVyGlMWLfeGqL2gZhKNxpr5LTu7wlilWeqzbjMaAicJEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds Please advise.
  3. Thinksmart, Thanks for your thoughtful and excellent and sensible reply. Best, Michael
  4. Thinksmart, I am interested in the following question for reasons I'll provide below: How old are you? (not you in particular, but people on the list) Reason: I'm wondering if younger people (I'm 62!) are into this. This will help me in planning what to do with my collection. Is this going to be okay to poll? If so, where?
  5. Because of the overwhelming lack of enthusiasm (to put it mildly) to a survey of this kind, I have decided not to pursue it. Instead, I've decided to hire a private detective to get the information I seek. p.s. Joke!
  6. Just added some info to my profile.
  7. Fish Fingers: Just for the benefit of the forum. Certainly not for publication. (Who would be interested but us?) Kevinkent: I'm not trying to hide anything. When I joined I probably didn't take the time to add anything, because I was trying to buy a record in a hurry. You're right though that it would probably be a good idea to add some information. I'm a guy, btw.
  8. Thanks to everyone. Mike, I'll pm you. This is an opportunity to everyone to know more about our community. (I'm a NOLA collector, and wonder why not everyone is.) Roughly, here are some of the things I have in mind: Areas of interest: What do you collect (genre)? What do you collect (Format: 45s, LPs, 78s, CDs, etc.)? Why do you collect? Are you a DJ? How long have you been collecting? Do you collect outside soul? Do you collect stuff besides music? (Is there a collecting gene?) Demographics: How old are you? What is your political leaning? What is your sex? (Will we get any non-males?) Investment/financial: How much money do you spend a year on records? What's the most you've ever spent? What is the range of cost you would consider? Fun stuff: What is your "holy grail" record? Stuff I'm particularly interested in: Where do you store your records? What times are you away from your residence? Do you have a dog? What is your address? (Just kidding!!!!) But this can be a group project. I'd be happy to have ideas of what else people would want to know.
  9. I would like to survey people on this site, about their specific interests, their demographics, etc. I am curious, and I suspect everyone would be. I have begun a survey but am in the early stages. Others could suggest content. And I would be happy to have administrators look at a survey before posting. I am writing here to ask permission, and for guidance about how to proceed. Thanks.
  10. The Shagg single you have is lonely. You don't listen to it that often. Maybe it's even an extra. (Imagine how you'd feel, to be a neglected second!) Perhaps it's lesser condition, and you're kind of a snob. But not everyone is! Let him loose!
