I had big plans for reviving the blog this year - but here we are well into January and...I got nothing.

I do, however, continue to make periodic Vinyl Community videos on YouTube. I don't regularly share them on the blog but maybe I'll do so from now on -- that would at least provide some content! Haha. Below is my latest opus, which focuses on Christmas gifts, SACDs and CDs I've picked up over the past month. If you are on Google+, please subscribe to my channel!
