Waxing Lyrical: Me, talking about Vinyl

As some of you may have noticed, over the past few months a few independent Music bloggers on Youtube have started uploading videos of themselves talking about their Vinyl collections. Despite my own mightily lack lustre collection, I decided to do the same thing. Why? I'm not entirely sure to be honest. Partly out of boredom, partly because I thought it would be fun, and probably partly because I wanted to show off about all the amazing records I've got (not that I'm expecting many people to care).

Fundamentally, I love talking about music (even if, as the video proves, I'm not very good at it) and I love sharing the things I love with other people. One of the reasons I set up this site in the first place was to tell people about new music that I love. If I can introduce even just one person to something they really love as a product of what I do, then I'm a happy man.

I know that technically the video is a shambles. I've never used that camera before and was not aware of just how poor it would both look and sound. Maybe if I do more videos in the future I'll be able to find a way to rectify it. I'm also fully aware that I say "Um" way too much, but watching the video back I found I could zone it out after a while. Hopefully you can too, but I don't blame you if not.

Nevertheless, I had fun making this video and hopefully any vinyl enthusiasts watching this found it interesting too. Any feedback is welcome, and please be brutal. I don't want to embarrass myself by doing another one of these if it's really that bad.

Thanks for the time. I should add here that I have reviews of the new records by Carl Kavorkian, Watain and Pixies ready and raring to go, they'll be posted tomorrow. Until then,
