I need a haircut. I'm beginning to resemble a late 70's baseball card. I've sold more records in the last three weeks than I did in all of January and February. Music really is essential, and though my post office is only a ten minute walk away, the one trip I make each week feels like a lifetime. I am masked up and gloved, hood tight over my head, dodging and pirouetting around people with a shopping cart full of record boxes. It's a sight to behold.
As if I don't already listen to more music on a daily basis than most, I feel less guilty about it these days. My calendar for the rest of April includes staying at home, looking out the window, staying home, eating, reading, staying home, looking out the window, eating, staying at home, bellowing "I NEED A HAIRCUT" every few days and of course, music, music, and more music.
I've discovered a fantastic jazz record that I will share this week, as well as a tip on a definitive vinyl copy of a classic album on the next "For The Record," and whatever else inspires me while in my office or on my cou....I NEED A HAIRCUT!
Thanks for reading. Let me know how you are doing.
