  • Fines of October

    Your finds are all so cute. The ruler is back kids.
  • My new Set-Up (set-up pron)

    Fantasy set-up realized 20 years later. 

    More here.
  • Just procured a Raer Vinyl Item

    Still out here buying shit. OG first press gatefold Minoru Muraoka "Bamboo" like it's 2004 AEIOU2. Are people still buying stuff? Anything interesting?
  • It's Summer (Raer) Oakland


    I was the first person to post about this.  Bobby Jr, the son of the lead guitarist is friend of mine in Vermont, where I used to live up until 2008, and he shared with me the original soundclips of the reels and 45's he found in his dad's storage attic. He was completely shocked. Took it to the strut. 
  • Soulstrut R.I.P. (1999-2016)

    I still collect records, finally got Kenny Mann and Jaye P. Morgan this week. A few long time wants. Still check this site weekly. However, social media killed the entire interest-based message board industry so we shouldn't feel special. Think about how technology and communication has changed since 2000. 

    Anybody who is ready to jump off the bandwagon let me know and I'll buy your collection. 

    I can't wait to post photos of my custom set-up I'm building in my new house. That alone will revive this site, I'm confident (sarcasm). The only person qualified to do a RIP thread is RAJ.

    I'm still down for the cause. 
    More Bizzo post around these parts would be a welcome sight.

    Also to note. I, much like Jimster enjoy the semi anonymous nature around these parts. Where people don't take themselves too serious and post for shits n giggles. But mixed with anyone's opinion or knowledge.

    What would you like me to talk about?

    Any records you're still on the hunt for?

    Places you still want to ride you've never been?

    Any great food spots down your way?

    Anything new or exciting going on in your life you would like to share with a semi anonymous strutter?

    Personal stuff. Wife pregnant with baby #3. Finishing building house in Marin that has taken almost 3 years, which includes custom fantasy record area and audiophile set up. Pictures coming in a month or so. Have been working professionally as a Venture Capitalist investing and advising tech start ups in Bay Area after a 5 year stint working for a few different startups.

  • Clout Culture Raps

    That dude "Lil Peep" is actually dead. Xanex OD. He's like the Tupac of clout rappers. 
  • It's Summer (Raer) Oakland

    Damn. That video is so sick.....
  • ~Your Favorite Local/Regional LP's~
