Today is 4/20 – Record Store Day 2013. Heh. Apparently folks started lining up at Grimey’s beginning at 4:00 yesterday afternoon, intending to camp out overnight in the sub-freezing cold. Good grief! That is insane. I love records but I can’t compete with that. Just imagine what a scene it was when they finally opened the doors at 10:00 this morning! Needless to say, I stayed far, far away from that madness. Besides, for me every Tuesday is Record Store day.

And, you know, it has occurred to me that perhaps I already have way too many records. I’ve been contemplating selling some of them on eBay (or Discogs.org) so I invested in some studio lights and a light tent in order to take high-quality photographs of my, um, merchandise.

Would you buy this record? Take a look: it’s a rare white label promo!

Deep Purple - In Rock (wlp)

I also pulled out the 85mm micro lens and took some pictures of very small items like this sculpture by Jodi Hays, “All Together Now” (2012). I think it looks pretty darn good for a first attempt at this kind of photography—but, please be advised: the artwork is not for sale.

Like records? Please consider checking out my CD: Rodger Coleman & Sam Byrd: Indeterminate (Improvisations for Piano and Drums). It's an explosive set of intense free improv, recorded live at "Indeterminacies" at Zeitgeist Gallery on September 6, 2012. Packaged in a deluxe 6-panel digipack with a 12-page booklet, it is made by record collectors for record collectors to savor and enjoy for years to come.

Ha ha, I'll pass on "In Rock," although I do remember that being spinned quite a lot in my high school daze.
