The Weekend Became Eclectic

The other weekend, I lucked across a handful of record collections, sleeping inside of some musty Broward crates. The stash comprised of 80's disco/dance, late-70's adult contemporary, 90's (mainly Miami) hip hop, and beyond. Here is a cross-section of what I brought home with me:

01. Live In Color - "I Wanna Rock" (1992, Clockin' Hits Records)
02. The Associates - "Heart Of Glass" (1988, WEA)
03. Paul Haig - "Justice" (1984, Island)
04. Up Front - "Infatuation" (1983, Silver Cloud)
05. Annette Peacock - "Pony" (1972, RCA)
06. Skylark - "Suites For My Lady" (1972, Capitol)
07. Empire - "Freakman" (1981, Quality)
08. The Graduates - "Thank You" (19?? Renegade Records)

Harry Potter

I just finished reading Harry Potter. From book one to seven in a row. I have to say it was quite an enjoyable experience. I can't thank enough Lisa & Rick for giving me such a great gift. The end could not have been better. I'm 100% satisfied with it. I'm really going to miss them all...
