Speaking of records

The other day, I put a single on the record player and it just sounded strange. Hmm. It was the B-side and I hadn't heard it in a while and...



It was too slow because it was a 45, dumbass!



I started shrieking with laughter. Ryan was like, what, did you think it was the slow-dance version?

Here's Me. Sticking my tongue out. At YOU.

I guess it's okay for a Catholic girl to say dumbass. Cause where I go to church, that would be frowned upon. :-)

Also, I have a 33 I am trying to play and the record player won't work. Try finding someone who can fix that. Not happening!

Junebug, you're too funny. It is frowned upon, but I still do it. How bad is that?

I really do need to reign in what I say. Especially since I would be horrified if the kids in my life picked up my bad habits.

Yeah, I'm in nooo position to judge! :-)

uh, that would be "rein" in what you say, control like you use a rein on a horse - "reign" is what a monarch does...

oh, and you obviously thought you were playing an EP!

Zolafan, just so you know, I do reign. Tilly is the princess, but I am the QUEEN.

It's not even my typing skills. My brain thought that looked right. I'm hoping my brain chemistry settles soon. I hate being stupid.

Oh, and I've always wanted to know--what's an EP?

EP = extended play, as opposed to LP = long play. I think of them as 7" or 10" records that you play at 33 rpm instead of 45, so you get more songs on a side than with a single. It was a way for a band to put out 5 or 6 songs, instead of a full album. And there would be a small hole in the middle like an LP, instead of the big hole like a single. Punk bands did them a lot, but so did the Beatles and other 60's groups.

There were also 12" EP's (e.g. Chronic Town, REM's first record, only 5 songs). Ryan and I were just mentioning a song from that EP on Sun. - "Gardening at Night."
