I have been without a turntable for the past couple of years. Certain friends of mine will know how much of a blasphemy this is. My records are lonely and unplayed on a shelf, including, but not limited to My Bloody Valentine’s “Loveless”, the first Queens of the Stone Age ever, Rick Springfield’s “Success Hasn’t Spoiled Me Yet”, Shawn Cassidy’s “That’s Rock ‘n’ Roll”, my 1st ever 45, and it goes on.
In short, I need a record player. And I want one that can rip from vinyl to MP3, and contains its own speaker system. SELF SUFFICIENT RECORD PLAYER, PLEASE.
Oh, there you are!
I am always a sucker for tech items with an old-timey twist. IPhone skins made from real wood? I’m there. Available in a number of colours, I’m most partial to the Violet-toned one. Of course.

Two things that I love – computers and bicycles. Added onto an adorable striped fabric, with the ability to say “old time-y” and it not seem odd? It makes me coo.
I need a new turntable. I have vinyl that needs to be played and nothing to play it on. Come to me, CR6004A! Come to me!
That is much less seductive then I thought it would be.

So pretty, I wouldn’t worry about what they’re doing to my hair. In fact, they’re so much like headbands, I bet Blair Waldorf would approve.
I have much love for Tord Boontje. I have a completely unnecessary desire for a netbook. When you put them together, and when HP decides to use a new imprinting technology to create a casing with a layered, 3D design, I become unable to resist.

Shucka-shucka-shuck. This is the sound of me sscratching records. Wearing these:
Customizable! Adorable! Yes, please.

I still gots vinyl, and would play my records even more on a sexy little thing like this.
