Records and Happy Endings
I dig all things digital a whole lot but i also dig things i can actually feel and touch like records, i dig textures. Paul Mawhinney born and raised in Pittsburg, Pa. has compiled the worlds largest record collection thru the years estimated at over 2.5 million records and its value is worth more than $50 million; dipstet! Ever since this onslaught of digital music downloads the vinyls have been quite neglected and this has forced Mawhinney to close his record shop and sell his collection also due to his current diabetes condition. He's asking for a measly $3 million for the entire collection so if you got some loot this is a better investment than real estate right now.

and for those of us who still like getting down with the vinyl it is Tuesday and that can only mean one thing, Disco Down @ Happy Ending. Free well vodka from 10:30-11:00 and all the fresh disco beats from that disco era. End your night with a happy ending.
