    3. I bought my first record when I was 13. I'm 30 now, I don't consider it digging when all I do is Google and use EBay and wander down to the record store when I got a spare minute. There are people who are much more serious and dedicated than myself. I got a girl who likes to spend time so mostly on a saturday I'm out at lunch or going for a walk. I get 15 minutes to visit the store before I get dragged off to the butchers or the coffee shop.

    I got an Oxfam that seems to get lots of good stuff in and I always see the guys posting it up here like that Outlaw LP that sat in the crates for three weeks and suddenly I picked up on it but it was gone. I miss out on lots of stuff cos I'm not that organised about it and I always leave my portable at home. I got a good dealer at Protobello Markets that I visit on sundays. He keeps stuff he thinks I'll like aside for me so I don't have to do much but hand over the loot. I don't have a wants list or go slavering over holy grails. I mostly buy anything I like but I'm no baller. Truth be told I prefer to spend my money on travel.

    4. Right now I like country. Gunfighter ballads and that sort of stuff I also like piano, flutes, xylophones and of course drums. New stuff I've been picking up is all dancehall, reggaeton and dancehall/hiphop blends because the dancehall producers have got the best beats IMHO. Stuff I've been listening to recently is Afro Latin Quintet and some Latin - Ray Baretto, Nico Gomez, Tres Bien Quartet.

    5. A friend recommended as a good place to share knowledge. I mostly lurk unless I got specific experience of stuff.

    6. Someone posted something asking for a recommendation about some sort of music and I had an album to recommend.

    7. I don't love you. I love my girl.

    Hi
