Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

File Under "Bizarre"

Ever run into an song or album and wonder who the target market for this is? This song has been on my iPod for a few weeks now and it has me wondering just that. I love it, but I love old records and pop culture and crap like that. I found this song on an indie blog or torrent somewhere. I'm sorry I don't remember where... A quick Google search lead me to the place that had this song already posted. The "band" is called People Like Us. The song I heard was Lost Happy Songs. It's a mash-up... Sort of... I should have researched them more before I posted this, but I just wanted to get it up here. It occurred to me today that the best target audience for this is you guys - the readers of Check The Cool Wax and other blogs and sites that share old and forgotten songs. Check it out. No guarantee you will like it, but it will probably make you chuckle.

Record Player Papercraft?

This is a really cool looking record player made completely out of paper. They say it's fully functional... I'd have to see it to believe it. See more pics here.
