Recording LP’s

imho (in my [most] humble opinion)

After digitizing my entire 700+ record collection to lossless FLAC/ALAC MP4 files, here are a few lessons learned about recording LPs old and new:
IMG_4636
[VinylStyl 45 singles and LP cleaner and rinse units]

discogs-bullet

    For cleaning old LPs my best results come from washing with a commercial vinyl solution – like those from Mo-fi, then rinsing with distilled water. Dump the distilled water every 20 lps or so and use fresh distilled water. For brand new LPs or really clean old LPs I just use the distilled water to wash off the dust. Let the LP air dry the rest of the way. Distilled water leaves no residue. If I want to play the LP right away, I blot off the water drops from both sides, put the record on the platter still damp, turn on the power and watch the record spin until all of the water has evaporated. The…

Teens, marijuana and depression

Mike Schlossberg - Author

A friend of mine was kind enough to flag this article for me, and it brings up some points that I really think are worth exploring.

As a debate over legalizing marijuana continues across the country – and in Pennsylvania – a new study draws a connection (not a casualtional one, however) between teen marijuana use and depression.

From the NBC report on the study:

Researchers found that cannabis use during the teenage years was associated with a nearly 40 percent bump in the risk of depression and a 50 percent increase in the risk of suicidal thoughts in adulthood, according to the study, published Wednesday in JAMA Psychiatry.

The report does note that this isn’t to say marijuana causes depression (though that may, in fact, be the case). It’s possible that the depression encourages marijuana use, or that a third factor (such as economics, anxiety, stress, etc) cause…
