The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Extreme vinyl records, Brevard edition

It was much nicer today than yesterday so Bunny and I went shopping. At one of the stores, this vinly record caught my eye:

[A picture of the “Barbie Sing-along” vinyl record, with Barbie, Ken, and three kids, one of which is darker than the other two] ♫One of these things is not like the others, / One of these things just doesn't belong, / Can you tell which thing is not like the others / By the time I finish my song?♫

And now I'm curious as to what other horrors could be found in this pile of records?

[A picture of the “Growing Pains” soundtrack] Seriously?  They released a 90s TV show theme on vinyl?  There was market for this?  Who? No!  Wait!  I don't want to know! [A picture of a record with Fonzie on the cover] And you thought William Shatner was bad!

Those were the three worst I found, thankfully. I also found this album from Moms Mabley, a black comedienne popular in the 50s and 60s:

[Picture of Moms Mabley comedy album] A comedy album about Lincoln, Kennedy and King?  By a black woman?  This I have to hear!

Just a bit of triva: she was born in Brevard.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
